(v.) to find transcendent contentment through art.
-- "Man, everything sucks. My shitty job, worrying about loosing my shitty job, never having enough money, there’s never anything to do even if I did have enough money. And don’t get me started on the government: Republicans, Democrats, Donald Trump — like there’s a difference. They’re all dicks who think we’re all idiots. And you know what? We are idiots. Who else but an idiot would put up with all this sub-mental, rip-off bullshit? I swear, I can’t take it no more. It’s clocktower time."

-- "Chill, son. You need to get your art on. Slide over to the museum, soak up some Mondrian and Miro. Or school up on an instrument like Louis Badass Armstrong’s choice of expression: the trumpet. Get a girl; waltz her honey ass to a dance class. Or maybe channel your hang-up’s and screw-up’s into a play, off-Broadway style. Don’t look back in anger, man. Know’m saying? Let loose.”
