I think Above it’s fucking great. I totaly have to ‘fess up… I was jealous as shit when I first heard it. It’s like somebody taking your girlfriend out. [laughs] But after that initial reaction, I went and saw them play at the Moore Theater and I was so proud, I was beaming for them. I almost started crying while I was watching them because it was so cool. Then I pissed again because I wasn’t up there playing! [laughs].

I talked to 
Layne a lot about the record [above]. It was good for him because it blew a bunch of shit out of his head. I think it was real healthy for him to be able to do that. I have nothing but the greatest respect for that guy. And that record’s very soulful. There are some real low, cobwebby passages on that fucker that are cool as fuck, Layne has the most beautiful way of saying something horrible I’ve ever heard.”

Mr. Mxyzptlk:  The big problem with being immortal is filling your time.  For example, I spent the first two thousand years of my existence doing absolutely nothing.  I didn’t move…I didn’t breath.  Eventually, simple inertia became tiresome, so I spent the next two thousand years being saintly and benign, doing only good deeds.  When that novelty began to fade, I decided to try being mischievous.  Now, two thousand years later, I’m bored again.  I need a change.  Starting with your death, I shall spend the next two millennia being evil!  After that, who knows?  Perhaps I’ll try being guilty for a while.  

Louis Lane: Superman…H-He’s changing!

Mxyzptlk: Did you honestly believe a fifth-dimensional sorcerer would resemble a funny little man in a derby hate?  Would you like to see how I really look?”
