"I now get scared of forgetting anything about Renee, even the tiniest detail, even the bands on this tape I can't stand--if she touched them, I want to hear her fingerprints. Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding, trying to remember: What was Renee's shoe size? What color were her eyes? What was her birthday, her grandparents' first names, that Willie Nelson song we heard on the radio in Atlanta?...Nothing connects to the moment like music. I count on the music to bring me back--or, more precisely, to bring her forward."
“I believe that when you're making a mix, you're making history. You ransack the vaults...zero in on that one moment that makes you want to jump and dance and smoke bats and bite the heads off drugs. And then you play that one moment over and over. A mix tape steals these moments from all over the musical cosmos, and splices them into a whole new groove."
"It was a painful night, but I got the message: Let the dancing girls dance. That's the one ironclad rule of pop muzik, whether in New York, London, Paris, or Munich, and I'm just lucky I learned it so early. I had always been taught to fear disco, and to fear the disco inside me. But by the second verse of 'Bad Girls,' it was obvious everything I knew was wrong. 'Toot toot, beep beep' was meaningful on a much deeper level than I could have fathomed."
