“I think what happens is that when people move to the sticks, they still want all their products and services, and they get out here and then gradually the place they thought was bucolic and serene starts looking like all the places that they left, because they brought with them all the things that made the place they used to live in look so… crappy. And they have to keep moving further away , but they’re really bringing it all with them.”

– Tom Waits, “Gone North: Tom Waits, Upcountry”
