Random ramblings and numerous neuroses.

Does anyone like doing these things?
So, what to say?
Cynic, idealist, romantic, fanboy, geek.
There's not a whole lot else. Maybe I'll add other things when I figure out how to put piccies on here.

"Doctor Prunesquallor, with his hyena laugh, his bizarre and elegant body, his celluloid face. His main defects? The insufferable pitch of his voice; his maddening laughter and his affected gestures. His cardinal virtue? An undamaged brain."
Mervyn Peake, Titus Groan

"Through honeycombs of stone would now be wandering the passions in their clay. There would be tears and there would be strange laughter. Fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings. And dreams, and violence, and disenchantment.
And there shall be a flame-green daybreak soon. And love itself shall cry for insurrection! For tomorrow is also a day ..."
Mervyn Peake, Titus Groan

"Of the rest, nothing further is said, save that lovers love and live and, in due season, as all men must, they also die ... For such was and is mortal life, mortal death. But for love, who can predict or measure, plot, ascribe, or declare an end? Love is one of the immortals."
Tanith Lee, Night's Sorceries

It's Just A Ride
"The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: 'Is this real? Or is this just a ride?' And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid - ever - because... this is just a ride.' And we kill those people.

'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.'

It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that - ever notice that? - and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because... it's just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort. No work. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over - not one human being excluded - and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace."
Bill Hicks RIP
