Conception of Dime: dime, the original meaning is the small nickel coin. As the material world grow. dimes are having depreciation, people are more avaricious, the dime are more cheap as a metal currency or whatever conception in the economics. So why don’t we look reversely, giving the dime a new conception exclude the original meaning of currency? We just follow a new idea seen dime as a victim or fall out one of the material world. Becoming a “dime” means temporarily escape from your office, your school and your house loan or your wife, just forget all those material stuff , follow the Dionysian spirit. (Actually I hate to preach those scientific and philosophic talk, that’s bollocks and pretend to be profound, anyway, in a short word, “dime” means have fun and being crazy in the live shows here! “Dime” is just a noun with no meaning.)
