You laugh because I'm different. I laugh because I've rigged your house with explosives.

All this breaking news , just keeps breaking you.

say what you will; say what you mean.
you could never offend;
your dirty words come out clean.

My light went out.

The moon in the water
Turned a somersault
And floated away.

At some point in time there will be a time where time holds no meaning.

"I only throw caution to the wind when there is no breeze."

"I believe in the sun, even though it doesn't shine, I believe in love, even when it isn't shown, I believe in God, even when He doesn't speak."
-Found on the wall of a concentration camp

Creativity is intelligence having fun!

I enjoy these calm little moments before the storm.

" I don't think the cute little robot wants to follow its new programming, Sam"
" I don't recall giving it a cute little choice."

Isn't it funny, those times
When you wish your mind was broken
So that you could patch it with crazy glue
And never have to be sane again.

I hid myself, and now I don't know where to find me.

I took you home
Set you on the glass
I pulled off your wings
Then I laughed

Being a hypocrit doesn't make you wrong.

"A girl in Salt Lake once asked me: Why are you wearing makeup, are you a fag??. I said, Well, if I'm a fag for wearing makeup, you must be a dyke in blue jeans. I also informed her that she was just angry because I was prettier than she was." - Davey

....I have already paid for all my future sins
There's nothing anyone
Can say to take this away
It's just another day and nothing's any good....

You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.

I was almost over, my world was almost gone, in a sudden rush, i could almost touch the things that i've done wrong....

The unplanned organism is a question asked by nature and answered by death. I'm a different kind of question, with a different kind of answer.

...or we must learn to fly." -The Magdalena

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which
is doing its best, night and day, to make you
everybody else-means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting"

Sanity calms, but madness is more interesting.

I'm not very smart but I can lift heavy things.

There is nothing left to deconstruct. In fact, now it's time to rebuild.

Life is one giant test. But dont study for it, cause the answer wont be in your notes.

Never assume someone is uninformed because they hold an opinion that differs from yours. You may end up shoving your foot in your mouth.

"The human race cannot bare much reality" T S Eliot

Veni, Vidi, Ventus - I came, I saw, I ranted

You waited all of your life for this moment, but then when you stepped up words failed you and for once human nature won over the written word.

Inspiration is like the tide. First it floods your mind, then it quickly disappears and leave you with nothing but mud and a stranded boat.

.::You will never escape monotony without dirtying your clothes::.


i hate calc. i hate people. i hate work. i hate. i hate. i hate. i hate life. and then i think and i know i dont hate life, but im tired of crap. i just want to do what i want to do and i cant do what i want to do unless i do all the crap i dont want to do and i really dont want to do anything that everybody else wants me to do and the only things i want to do are things that everybody else doesnt want me to do and so i cant do what i want to do because doing what i want to do results in my not doing what i dont want to do and everybody else being angry and making me not do what i want to do in order to to what i dont want to do and then i get angry and dont do anything instead of doing what i want to do or what i dont want to do.
-Amber T.'s rant

Razors pain you; Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give;
Gas smells awful; You might as well live.

12 Reasons Why Gays Shouldn't Be Allowed To Marry

1. Homosexuality is not natural. Of course eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control are.

2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people can't legally get married because the world needs more children.

3. Obviously, gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if Gay marriage is allowed, since Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

5. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are property, blacks can't marry whites, and divorce is illegal.

6. Gay marriage should be decided by people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of the minorities.

7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire counrty. That's why we have only one religion in America.

8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

9. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

10. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven't adapted to things like cars or longer lifespans.

12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "separate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Separate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as separate marriages for gays and lesbians will.


Tried to say something
That filled my mouth
And longed to rest in your ear.
Don't dare write it down
For fear it'll become words...
Just words.

"Through meditation I program my heart to beat breakbeats and hum basslines on exhalation." -Saul Williams.

I am the paradox that makes sense.

"What you see is unmedicated pain, injustice and misery. It's a cure to me that not everyone can be there just once to see for themselves what phosphorus does to the face of a child, what unspeakable pain is caused by the impact of a single bullet, or how a jagged piece of a shell splinter can rip someone's leg off. If everyone could be there to see for themselves that fear and that grief just one time, than they would undestand, that nothing is worth letting things get to the point where that happens to even one person, let alone thousands. But everyone can not be there, and that is why photographers go there." James Nachtwey

"girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short and wear shirts and boots 'cause it's ok to be a boy, for girls, it's like promotion. but for a boy, to look like a girl is degrading, because secretly you believe that being a girl is degrading"

"I find a good “rendering” is drawing of what the person sees, I find “a work of art” is drawing what others don’t see."

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor to measure words but to pour them all out, just as it is, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keeping what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away. -- George Elliot

The youth gets together the materials for a bridge to the moon, and at length, the middle-aged man decides to make a woodshed with them.

If God wanted us to bend over he'd put diamonds on the floor.

Don't argue with stupid people. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

There exists no expression of sheer, black passion as pure as he who turns towards the moon, singing his passionate song. He senses and breathes instinctively in relation to the forces around him.

Somedays you are the pigeon and some you are the statue.

When the world stops and I'm still spinning, will you catch me as I fall. Off the tallest building inside the smallest of worlds, i plummet. To my knees, I pray you will notice me. Someday when everything is better I'll look. In your eyes, and wonder what I did to deserve. Someone like you.

September 11th
Nobody is innocent, right? Isn't that what all of the holy books say? We're all sinners? But after the Trade Center, it was all about the innocent victims, all the innocent victims, and I kept thinking-I knew one of those guys in the towers was raping his daughter. Raping her. Maybe he was raping his son, too. And beating his wife. I think about that morning, and I wonder if the bastard was smiling when he hopped on a train for work. I think about his daughter and son sitting in some generic and heartless suburban classroom, just sad and broken and dying inside. And his wife sitting at home dying inside. That bastard gests off his train and walks up to his office on the hundred and seventh floor or something, and everybody loves him there. He's a hero at work. And Mr. Hero is sitting at his desk, smiling and being heroic, when that airplane flies straight into his office. Flies right through the window and obliterates him, completely disappears him. And the news travels, right? The wife turns on the television and sees the towers burning, and the teachers wheel televisions into the classrooms, and the son and daughter watch the towers burning. The wife and kids count the floors, right? They count all the way up to the hundred and seventh floor, and they see it burning, and they're happy, right? They're hopeful, right? Aren't they hopeful? Then the first tower comes down. Both towers come down. And the wife is jumping up and down at the home. She's celebrating. But the kids have to stay calm, because they're in public, you know, but inside they're jumping up and down like their mom. They run home, and all three of them sit in the living room together at watch the news, and they wait. Yeah, they wait for him to come home. The news is talking about the survivors, right? About the people who made it out. And the wife and kids are praying to God he died. That he burned to death or jumped out a window or was running down the stairs when the tower fell. They sit in the living room for three days, waiting for him to come home, and then they wait for three more days, waiting for him to come home, and on the seventh day, they realize he isn't coming home. He's dead and they're happy. The monster is gone and they're celebrating. They dance around the living room and sing songs and dance dances and they're happy. Don't you think all of this is possible? Don't you think there was at least one man in the towers who deserved to die? Don't you think there's a wife and kids who're happy he died? Don't you think there's some daughter walking around who whispers Osama's name with tenderness and affection? Don't you think there's a wife out there who thanks God or Allah or the devil for Osama's rage?

"I am not the person I was yesterday. But I hope I am the person tomorrow....that I am today."


Good and Evil are words.

Like right and wrong.

They are concepts created by man to keep man under control.

But why is there a need for control? We are all humans. We all stand on the same Earth.

It's because we get bored.

This world is simple, violent, and boring. So we made a new one.

We live in a world within a world that we created.
said first by what-

Life is like a beautiful melody, only the lyrics are messed up.

"You are unique which makes you just like everybody else"

i'm building memories on things we have not said.

She’s safe, just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we're all men of our word really except for Elizabeth who is, in fact, a woman.

between rupture and rapture...

"This is not real. And the real world lies someplace else."

"This war is like a storm over the land. But those men made the weather, and then they stand out in the rain and yell 'Shit, it's raining!'"

This does not bode well...
