BC: I dont believe it has a lot of meaning. Its not a funny subject. Maybe in Mexico it is, but it isnt here in the US. In Mexico it is a party, and its right before the people realized that the life is so short, and you have to live it right here, right now. In the US we think like we are never going to die.

IN: singing
BC: I have a strange voice. Singing its a very strange situation for me. I only open the mouth and the song is out, but I dont recognized like mine necesarly. I never took singing lessons before now; I want to sing better, dont change my voice, be a better singer. If someone doesnt like my voice, I dont know what to say, because it the only one I have. I dont sing like that because I want, Its because thats my voice.

IN: Walt Disney
BC: He's also dead. He also was a genius. His understanding about the future was huge: he understanded that it was going to be a imitation and no a reality. Now we live in the imitation, not in reality.

IN: Religion
BC:boring. god is very boring. I believe in god like a creator and center of all, but I dont believe that a religion can resolve all. God is a pure concept, Religion isnt .

IN: beatles
BC: The best band in all times. Nobody will be better than the beatles. Imposible: the times have changed a lot, these arent ingenuous times, and the beatles come from an ingenuous times. Nobody has made so good music in only seven years.

BC: You may want anything else, it's a decision. You can or cant use them; you can jump from a building or you cant. You can read a book or you cant; it doesnt matter. Is what you want to do with your life.The drugs are not the problem, the people is the problem

IN: Corporations.
BC: The new governments. They rule the world, not the governments.

BC: The interviews come designed and the person has to negociate, guess what does the interviewer think I am, before talking to him. A lot of interviewers try to demonstrate that the person they are interviewing its not that marvellous like the people thinks.

BC: I love fans. I respect them a lot. You need a lot of energy to be one. They can do anything with my life, they can change me in what they want, they can rise me or drown me, I am only an object, a character of a comic. But they cant affect me. I like to have fans.

IN: sex
BC: It doesnt interest me, I can reject it.

BC: I dont reject love. love is what you are, love is suicide.
