Jonathan Leder & Danielle Luft
"Pornography has a very dirty and cheap connotation but I dont see anything about our magazine being dirty or cheap."
Jim Walrod & Hester Diamond
"I should thank the Diamonds for giving me a career and Mike D for calling me 'The Furniture Pimp'. I'll never live that one down."
"I think this music is the soundtrack to city living. To me it sounds really organic even though it's made with machines."
Warhol Star & Publicist
"Bad was an Andy Warhol movie I was in. I had an important role, which was throwing a baby out a window."
"The art scene has changed. I don’t think it’s very exciting. I think it’s very corporate and a little boring."
"My sound is authentic and honest. You can hear Brooklyn coming through it."
Ann Liv Young
"I have my own issues with exploitative sex and porn and when I make sexually explicit work I'm really exploring my own questions."
"Setting myself on fire was a trial and error process. There was some pain..."
"Racing pigeons is a big money game. It's generally a 'made man's' sport."
"This has become an obsession, a sickness. I have about 30 different ideas for bikes in my head at any given time."
Trenton Doyle Hancock
"I get my inspiration from comics, films, toys & posters and then I put them together to form a hybrid experience."
"The New York I live in is populated by bands, bicycles and booty dancing."
"Some of the places I've created shows are abandoned and not what people usually see as beautiful. It's nice to reinvent it's meaning."
President, The Explorers Club
"Members from our club have been the first to climb Mt. Everest & the first to land on the moon."
"Inside the ring I have a warrior's mentality. I'm out for blood. I'm out for vengeance."
"I am an illustrator, which in the art world, is very much equivalent to whore."
Pastry Chef, Jean Georges
"There are so many great restaurants in NYC. If I could, I'd go to a different one every night."
Kev O'Kane Part I
Past Life Regressionist
"Past Life Regression is the closest thing we have to time travel."
Kev O'Kane Part II
The Future of New York City
"When the tsunami finally hits New York City it will be just about empty. There will be some scavengers left that will probably die."
The Corduroy Club
"The club was met with a lot of resistance. In fact, our first website was sabotaged."
Foot Fetish Model
"Once in a while someone will contact me who wants to eat an ice cream sunday off my feet. Of course I say yes, but it's a little odd."
High Times Editor & Pot Expert
"There's this idea that somehow smoking pot makes you lazy but I really believe that it's just lazy people love to smoke pot."
"Hamburgers should not have sauces. Sauces, like a klansman’s hood, are a way of covering up something evil."
"Very simply, since 9/11, most of my colleagues in the media have become pussies."
Rev. Al Sharpton
Civil Rights Activist
"I met James Brown at the Apollo and he took me in and became a father figure to me."
Garrison Buxton & Ray Cross
Ad Hoc Art
"Art blurs the boundaries of life and creativity."
"Everything was cool until the gang living next door kicked a hole in the wall and stole a bunch of paintings and my girlfriend's panties"
