“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”—Charles Bukowski (via thechocolatebrigade)
“Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say, “You’re crooked. You’ve always been crooked and you’ll continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!” said the straight tree. He said, “I’m tall and I’m straight.” And then one day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the manager in charge said, “Cut all the straight trees.” And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange.”—Kneller, from the movie Wristcutters: A Love Story.
Last night I carved the symbol for Scorpio into my left wrist. It looks okay but I need to make it deeper because some of the scars aren’t showing up so well. I think I might burn it in with a needle or something because burn scars last a lot longer.
p.s. the new Against Me! single, “I Was A Teenage Anarchist,” sounds like shit. It’s gayer than sum-41. FUCK. Why did Tom Gabel have to fucking ruin everything? They used to be so cool, he used to sing the songs of my soul. As cheesy as that sounds dude, what the fuck ever. Uhg and not to mention Johnny Hobo & The Freight Trains are fucking done because Pat the Bunny decided to get clean and go to rehab and he refuses to sing his Johnny Hobo songs any more. Damn, how depressing. Whatever, at least he didn’t embarass himself in front of the whole world like Tom Gabel did. At least he has a good reason for not playing his music any more. Tom just sold out and became a washed up faggot. And really, he thinks he can perform Walking Is Still Honest on tour the the Foo Fighters? The fucking foo fighters! “Our arena’s, just basements and bookstores ‘cross and underground America” doesn’t really apply anymore, Tom.
I don’t have a problem with artists who want to change their style and explore new genres but the new Against Me! is just a fucking contradiction. It’s just a joke. Tom is the only remaining original member. Way to go, buckaroo.
Anyway, you can tell that this day’s been going pretttttty good, but don’t worry
You know that place between sleep and awake? That place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you.
