“I did have this amazing revelation about dive bars and thrift stores, which I try to hit everywhere I am. They’re the two things that corporate greed can’t kill. I’m like, ‘Why do artists love dive bars and thrift stores so much?’ Because McDonald’s can’t try to kill them. They’re untouched and will always remain untouched.”

“Better me than a child.”

Also, she was once a teacher, so obviously she is a total badass.

“I’m about ready to name my daughter Revolution.”
Caseylin Darcy, I’m about ready to name my daughter Revolution, Bangor Daily News. May 22, 2013.
“It’s clear in our society that we consistently blame and shame survivors. We call women ‘bitchy’ or ‘rude’ when they speak their minds — and instead expect them be polite and subservient. We ask men to ‘be tough’ and ‘get over it’ from everything ranging to being sensitive to living with PTSD – and instead expect them to be dominant and forceful, and even violent. We are simply taught, in so many subliminal ways, to be more concerned with having power and control over others than over ourselves.

“I’m not real comfortable talking about politics. I’m probably more conservative than most folks in the business. But the best way I can put it to you is, here at age 46, I am less interested in politics than I’ve ever been in my life. Politics don’t serve a lot of good. I’m not talking about government—government serves a lot of good. But politics don’t seem to be reaping a lot of positive benefits these days.”

Jaime and I watched most of “Camp Nowhere” last night. Everything about that movie is delightfully inappropriate.
