"Some artists will tell you that's all they want to do is write their own music, and that's great, but George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, they didn't write everything they recorded, and they've had major, major careers. I think it's all about the best song." - Jake Owen

"Kenny Goldsmith from Ubuweb describes himself as an amateur archivist, and people can download files from Ubuweb - it's not a streaming service. But it's a miracle that it's still online and they're able to make it work through the donations of server space and volunteer efforts." - David Grubbs

I wouldn't want to be like them, you understand, but I'd like to be equal, if you will." - B B King

"We just, you know, we're just sort of doing it like Bewitched, because we just think that the character of Kenny is so specific and so outrageous and so fun.

"I literally wouldn't have dreamed of it in a million years that I'm going to be standing there with George (Strait) and Garth and Kenny (Chesney) and Reba (McEntire) and Brooks & Dunn.

"I think that a rap aficionado, the hardcore rap fan, will always go away from pop, in the same way a hardcore jazz fan will never think Kenny G is really a jazz artist.

"He stopped to rest at a cart selling nuts and candy, bought himself some Jelly Belly's, flirted just enought with the Mexican cutie working there to convince her pull out the banana-flavored one. Although he liked his Jelly Belly's mixed up, he didn't like banana, but, since it took too much effort to pull them out himself, he generally tried to talk someone else into doing it. If that didn't work, he just ate 'em. - Kenny Traveler" - Susan Elizabeth Phillips

"I found myself thinking about the distance between the 60s and today through certain moments. Like the Henry Flynt interview with Ubuweb founder Kenny Goldsmith, where he talks about how he was scarred by how proud John Cage was to be ignorant of popular music. Goldsmith says, "Nobody thinks twice nowadays about listening to everything!" Something that had seemed so uniquely, radically syncretistic in Flynt's day seems much more commonplace now." - David Grubbs

"You think Bernadette Maguire killed him?" "Uh... no. She"s, like I said, she's old." "Old people can kill people too." "I know, but..." "She could be a ninja." "She's not a ninja, for God's sake. She's somebody's great grandmother." "I want you to think carefully about this, Kenny. Have you ever seen her with a sword?" "What?" "How about throwing stars?" "This is ridiculous." "Have you ever seen her dressed up as a ninja? That would have been my ?rst clue." The girl sucked in her cheeks so she wouldn't laugh out loud." - Derek Landy
