a most excellent quote

 

 

now playing: lynyrd skynyrd, “tuesday’s gone”

 

 

one of my absolute favorite magazines is tape op, a recording enthusiast’s magazine that embodies the indie principle as well as it’s possible to do so, in my opinion.

the last page this month is headlined “why should you vote?

the absolute best quote on the page comes from Sam Coomes of Quasi:

 

“I used to think, since the differences between the two major political parties in the U.S. are, from my perspective, pretty insubstantial, and that neither one of them seemed likely to address most of the deepest problems in this country in a meaningful way, that voting was a pointless exercise. Events have shown, however, that these relatively minor differences can have huge consequences…and the importance of voting has become quite clear.”

 

lissen UP, people.
