Specimen Sheet

From childhood, we’re trained to be a certain way, to behave a certain way – so that the power base can control us, really. And punk and drag are completely outside of that… Drag breaks the fourth wall, which is why it’s never been quite accepted, because nobody wants to be told that they are really a caricature of themself and to not take yourself too seriously. In a culture, you can choose fear or love. It’s been my experience and my observation that humans on this planet feel more comfortable with fear rather than love and openness… I do know what history tells us about humans. And humans, they actually don’t feel very comfortable with openness and freedom.

  6. “The most important thing you can do on this planet is become the realization of your own imagination…Fulfillment isn’t found over the rainbow—it’s found in the here and now. Today I define success by the fluidity with which I transcend emotional land mines and choose joy and gratitude instead.”

  9. In Brian De Palma’s film Scarface (1983), Tony Montana sees the phrase “The World Is Yours” on an airship advertising Pan American Airlines. Tony takes that phrase to heart and makes the world his by reaching the top of the drug trade.
    Mathieu Kassovitz’s film La Haine (1995) repeatedly references this phrase  through the use of a billboard that has an image of the globe with the caption “Le Monde Est À Vous” (“The World Is Yours” in French). Toward the end of the film Said spray paints out the V of Vous and replaces it with an N to make Nous, changing the phrase to “The World is Ours”.
