“….generally, I’ve always aspired to become a part of something. But I just never felt like it–it hasn’t really happened. It’s odd, because I have my big club, now, and I’m president.

Two months later, I was like, fuck this. I’m not like you. I don’t want to lose my identity, my independence, by being around a bunch of other people who are also scared, doing the same thing. Hiding behind something printed on a t-shirt that gives you a sense of who you are.”- Trent Reznor
