Don Van Vliet: Mondrian... I like his paintings so much that I keep my mouth tastefully shut. Piet did a thing called Broadway Boogie Woogie, my favorite painting. You can hear the horns honk. Van Gogh did paintings so good that upon walking out of the museum, I said 'The sun disappoints me so.'

Don Van Vliet: Ravens I use in my paintings because they clean up the land. Buzzards are nice, too. They also clean up mistakes on the highway done by human beings.
Don Van Vliet: Right now, the Chinese are killing tigers thinking it improves their manhood, and if they don't stop it, they have a pussy problem.
Don Van Vliet: I'd like to tell you people watching and listening... 'Boo!'
