“What I’ve learnt is that the more specific your writing, the more universal the appeal. If I try to make it Everytown USA, it falls apart. I’m very specific to where I’m at. But the fun part of that is, when I’m doing TV, I’ve always changed it. Most people think that you should want your adaptations to be slavishly devoted to the text; I’m the opposite of that.”

“That’s the joke of Prune, that we just pretend to be a restaurant. But we’re actually an institute for living. We hide behind the fried eggs, and we hide behind the marrow bones, but really what we’re doing here is trying to change the whole goddamn world, one lamb chop at a time. It’s slow going, but I think we’re getting there.”
~ Gabrielle Hamilton

“I’m into pleasure rebellion,” she says, lighting a cigarette. “I’ve shared all my misery and tragedy but in my personal life I’m a cheerleader, an optimist. That aspect of myself is not shared. Once you are free from trauma, you are going to luxuriate in pleasure and happiness – personal pleasure. A divine gluttony, I should say.”
Lydia Lunch
