As my early drawings warned me, where humans go, lions and tidal waves follow.
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, there was a slightly retro drum sound that was popular in hip-hop music called the 808 bass drum sound. It was the bass drum sound on the 808 drum machine, and it’s very deep and very resonant, and was used as the backbone as a lot of classic...
I was so lucky and blessed to have gotten ‘White Chicks’ so early into my career.
Well, I don’t think it ever did, but in the early ’60s I got interested in folk music.
We are all in a post-hypnotic trance induced in early infancy.
So I cut out all the drinkin’ and hangin’ out and stuff like that early on.
To be diagnosed with cancer was a frightening thing, and my first reaction was sheer panic, but I was really fortunate that the cancer was caught at such an early stage that I didn’t need chemo or radiotherapy. But I know that cancer is a chronic condition, and once you’ve had it, you’re on the...
The closer I get, the faster I have to go. Otherwise, I might be late to the very place where I’m not even expected. Adding to my tardiness is the fact that I don’t even know where I’m going. And I can’t get from here to there when I don’t even know where I am,...

Our influences are who we are. It’s rare that anything is an absolutely pure vision; even Daniel Johnston sounds like the Beatles. And that’s the problem with the bands I’m always asked about, the ones derivative of the early Seattle sound. They don’t dilute their influences enough.
My name is a half an hour early, but my body is on time.
Me: On time. Love: Late. Death: Early. Seriously, why are you late?
I worked in fashion, but I worked more in the sales side of fashion than in design. I was an assistant buyer for a department store back in the ’70s and the early years of Saint Laurent. And I used to have a lot of private clients that I bought for.
We’re taking sports too far and starting kids too early.
I accomplished so many things, so early in my career.
I married at a tender age during my early stage and radio struggles.
To a large degree, those early lean days were self-imposed.
From early childhood, I was interested in understanding how the world worked, and assumed I would be some kind of physical scientist or chemist. But the truth was, I didn’t know there was another kind of world, the inner world, that was just as interesting, if not more relevant, than what was going on in...
Early morning cheerfulness can be extremely obnoxious.
