Six things I could never do without
Good Stories
Women (not in a sleazy way, I just need females in my life to stay sane)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
“What civilization is is six-million people trying to make themselves happy by standing on each other's shoulders and kicking each other's teeth in. It's not a pleasant situation and yet, you can stand back and look at this planet and see that we have the money, the power, the medical understanding, the scientific know-how, the Love and the community to produce a kind of human paradise. But we are led by the least among us; the least intelligent, the least noble, the least visionary. We are led by the least among us and we do not fight back against the dehumanizing values that are handed down as control icons...

Culture is not your friend. Culture is for other people's convenience and the convenience of various institutions, churches, companies, tax collection schemes, what-have-you. It is not your friend. It insults you. It disempowers you. It uses and abuses you. None of us are well treated by culture and yet we glorify the creative potential of the individual, the rights of the individual. We understand that the felt presence of experience is most important. But the culture is a perversion. It fetishizes objects, creates consumer-mania, it preaches endless forms of false happiness, endless forms of false understanding in the form of squirrelly religions and silly cults, it invites people to diminish themselves and dehumanize themselves by behaving like machines; meme processors of memes passed down from Madison Avenue and Hollywood and what-have-you.”

Terrence McKenna

"At the end of the valley of decision there is always choice. Reality is what you can get away with." Robert Anton Wilson

Everyone wants desperately to be happy, but most expect someone else to make them happy. That or they just fill their life with "stuff." On that topic:

Mullah Nassreddin rode into Mecca on his donkey. He rode through every street and every alley with frantic determination. He searched every store, mosque and home. Eventually, the people could not help but ask him, "Nassreddin! Nasseddin! What is it you are doing?" And he replied, "I have lost my donkey! I've looked everywhere and I just can't find him!"

Aside from that, I think about how I can make the world stranger.
On a typical Friday night I am
Snuggling and or working on my comic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i use to be frusterated with the Goth subculture, now I miss it.
You should message me if
You know where your donkey is.
You think our society is more than a little crazy.
You feel passionately about something.
You wait until the movie is over to judge it.
The two of us
