some say phila. is a dirty city. Filth.

"There was a sense of dread pretty much everywhere I went. I didn't live in any good parts of Philadelphia, and so dread was my general feeling. I hated it. And, also, I loved it."

a release, a way to fight back, a need to conquer
ourselves, or others
a simple stupid joy
