"I got in a discussion about being a woman in power electronics and the guys were so condescending and not listening to a word I was saying. I shouldn’t have been affected by their stupidity but as I was playing they were staring at me in the front row and I ended up beating myself up with the microphone in the middle of my set right in front of them. I had a broken face for weeks." Puce Mary in Distort #43
"Le cinéma, disait André Bazin, substitue à notre regard un monde qui s’accorde à nos désirs. Le Mépris est l’histoire de ce monde.”

We are about to begin a little excursion if you will.
Down into the depths, plunging downward, down,
to what appears to be a bottomless pit.
So now as we go, and going we might,
inviting ourselves to see some sights!
