I didn't want to play these people any more songs and
by Aimee Mann

have them say that they weren't good enough.

I know that's not the healthiest of responses.

Everyone's just extracting meaning and feeling and
emotion from almost every aspect of music,
and I think that for me, it's a huge antidote to that to have a concept album.
- Aimee Mann

It's funny, because my last record was a lot about
isolation and people living in separate worlds that
other people can't even understand,
which drug addiction is the perfect negative example of.
- Aimee Mann

It's more important for me to have a good record with
good music and be part of a movie that's good and where
the music is used in a really great way.

The other stuff you want to say about it,
I don't care.
- Aimee Mann

In the '70s, everybody thought drugs were just good times.
People didn't really know about drug addiction,
or that such a thing existed.
When I grew up in the '70s I thought you had to take drugs.
It was almost like I didn't think you had a choice.
- Aimee Mann

Everybody kind of understands, Oh yeah you take drugs
and it does something to your brain and then you can't stop.
It's easier to describe that shame, that horrible feeling
of not being able to control your own life.
- Aimee Mann

He's busy.
And I'm busy.
I don't need the dough, though.

I did it when I was young, and some of the music was OK,
but it wasn't great.
- Aimee Mann

I certainly understand that we're all trying to make a living,
but I'm not thinking about that when I'm making it.
And if that's your sole motivation, it's going to reflect that narcissistic greed,
and you're going to hear it in the music.
- Aimee Mann

One of the things I've really gotten past in the last
couple of years is the idea of being made uncomfortable
by the way things appear,
rather than how things are.
Clearly in this business you have to contend with a lot of that.
- Aimee Mann

I have a 6-year-old, and his thing is to turn on Radio Disney in the car,
and I get such an allergic reaction to listening to
that music and the context into which it falls.
I'm really working on him about that.
- Aimee Mann

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
- widely misattributed to Mark Twain

on account of most of them?
Didn't most of them turn out all right after all?

If I didn't like you, I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you, I wouldn't miss you.
But I did, I do, and I will.
- Anonymous

Choose love. Choose to release all resentments.
Forgive everyone. Choose to release all regrets.
Forgive yourself for all decisions that you have ever made
that didn't work out as you hoped.
Forgive yourself for any financial decisions
that didn't meet your expectations.
Release your regrets if you choose
the "wrong" spouse or the "wrong" career.
Today, choose love.
Choose to love yourself.
Choose to love your life.
Choose to love all the friends, family, co-workers,
acquaintances, and others who share your life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.
When you can see that, you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
- Joseph Campbell

What if happiness were found in the serenity of simple pleasures.
What if we didn't need the newest gizmo... the highest high?
What if happiness is in the air we breathe...
slowly, deeply, and consciously?
What if happiness is one fresh grape, savored with gratitude?
What if happiness is in our oneness with all creation?
What if happiness is about enjoying life exactly as it comes to us -
without chasing after it?
What if happiness is something we CHOOSE...
regardless of our circumstances?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
