“[Justin Vernon]’s a fucking genius. I’d never seen nor heard of him in my life, and I looked up, and I was in a fucking 5-by-5 room with a white guy, smoking weed … and his voice is like something I’ve never heard, and he’s using words that are far from common. Within 20 minutes, I realized why Kanye had him there.”—Rick Ro$$
“When you look at the Kiss logo or a Hot Wheels package, there was something there that sucked us in on some emotional level, that is still what we try and capture or recreate today when we do a logo or piece of type. How can we try and channel the same emotions we got out of this stuff as kids?”—Andy Cruz, founder of House Industries
“I have two choices. Don’t shake it, and here’s a man that for the rest of his life will hate Donald Trump. But I don’t want that. I have a heart. Or shake it. And you don’t know what you are shaking. And you know what I did? I shook his hand. And then, I didn’t eat as well, because I didn’t know where his hand was. But I can tell you it wasn’t in a very good place.”—Donald Trump, recalling a fan walking out of a restroom in Manhattan, triggering his mysophobia with an outstretched hand. These sound like the words of a well-adjusted individual who I would be proud to have represent my nation internationally.
