  • Aaron Hotchner: Voltaire said, "The man visited by ecstasies and visions, who takes dreams for realities, is an enthusiast. The man who supports his madness with murder is a fanatic."


  • The term "lo-fi" comes from the term low fidelity, which is a type of sound recording that makes the recorded sound different from the original live sound through flaws, i.e. distortion, humming, background noises, and limited frequency response.
