Writing comics? Still the best job in the world. I sit around all day making shit up and see it illustrated, in 99% of cases, exactly as I imagined it, if not better. I've been doing this a long time now, and I'm going to do it until I die. Which probably won't be long, given the constant insane deadline pressure. But f**k it. Anything worth doing takes work. Some people do question if it's worth it, given that the industry makes no friends and takes no prisoners and is not kind to people without the chops or the commitment or a thick skin. You know what? I've got forty books out there that some people wear on their f**king skin, and I didn't manage that by arsing around on the internet all day. That's right. I managed it AS WELL AS arsing around on the internet all day. I have powers.

Warren Ellis

The internet has stopped people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff. Instead they sit at home and make their own records, which is sometimes OK but it doesnít bode well for long-term artistic vision. Itís just a means to an end. Weíre talking about things that are going to change the world and change the way people listen to music and thatís not going to happen with people blogging on the internet. I mean, get out there, communicate. Hopefully the next movement in music will tear down the internet. Letís get out in the streets and march and protest instead of sitting at home and blogging. I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span. Thereís too much technology available. Iím sure, as far as music goes, it would be much more interesting than it is today.

Elton John

There's so much bullshit around now in pop and hip-hop, and everybody's talking about the same f**king shit, like get the f**k outta here. That shit is horrible. I don't hate anybody, but that shit pisses me off. It's bullshit. So I wanna change things up and make people go, "Aw, man, this is the hot shit. Eamon talks from the heart. He's real."

Eamon (singer)

I think they called me the closest thing to a God of the Internet. But at the end, that article wasnít very complimentary, because the author suggested that I wasnít doing a very good job, and that I ought to be replaced by a "professional."
Of course, there isnít any "God of the Internet." The Internet works because a lot of people cooperate to do things together.
