The Velvet Underground were pioneers. The flashing lights, the entrancing music, people dancing aimlessly in an amphetamine-fuelled daze - The Exploding Plastic Inevitable was the first ever rave.
"Life shouldn’t be a struggle. Life should be a flowing smooth thing. This isn’t a hard world to live in, this isn’t hard dimension to live in. If you surround yourself with the right people and if you do the right things, and if you are as good of a person as you are capable of to other people; you will find that the World will make a place for you. What happens to you is dictated by the things you think about. You should always think good things and always look for the good in the World. If you look for the bad in the World, you will always find something bad. But if you look for the good you will find it, it is there" - John Frusciante
