In Their Words: "There's a line in 'Spore': 'I refuse to believe that it's hopeless, I set my course straight for the abyss ...' I look up to people who are determined to remain hopeful in hopeless situations, stubbornly refusing to be worn down by conventional wisdom. Every now and then, what is assumed to be nothing is actually something really special. Take for example, the famous Hubble Deep Field image: in the most boring and dark possible tiny region of sky, astronomers discovered thousands of galaxies. I think everyone's on a quest of one kind or another, and this is the story of someone bent on proving we're not (or she's not, or he's not) alone." -- Guitarist Brent Knopf
