Felt inspired by a couple friends today, who are talented musicians & are passionate about community. One of their new projects is CLUB NO QUIET:
"Club No Quiet is a not-for-profit record label that seeks to combat sexism in the music community, and in society at large, through promotion, education, & mentorship." - taken from CNQ’s website.
also you should check out their band, Hers -
you can listen to a preview of their new album here.

"It’s what sets us apart from animals. It’s not the opposable thumbs. It’s the complaining." - Christopher Vaughn Couse
"The true nature of human consciousness
and the time that it can be spared from the quest for food, sex, & whatnot
is to enjoy oneself by every possible means.”
"The artist is a strange being. I think it’s safe to say that a real artist is conscious of having a personal singularity that is partly a blessing and partly a curse. An artist enjoys and suffers from isolation. As solitude, isolation can nurture. It can also destroy."
