TV

My tv is not working. Probably for the best. Most networks have gone down the crapper already.

Do this, do that. Conform and you might be happy. Don't do this, don't do that. Don't conform and you WILL be happy.

Anonymity

 I find it quite interesting how much technology allows us to interact with each other. I know some would say that it hinders that one on one communication that human beings tend to rely on. That is partly true. There have been times when I've tried to express a certain opinion or idea to someone in person and they still don't have a clue about what I've said. So, for me, I feel that technology is a much better way for me to share my opinions and ideas to a much larger audience and because of that I usually tend to get responses from the right people. The ones who know exactly what I'm talking about. Let's face it, we can only share certain pieces of ourselves without being ridiculed. The rest is reserved for those who resonate on the same frequency and not only understand our thought process but live it everyday. Even as I type this, I am wanting to share all of my accumulated knowledge with the entire population. What's stopping me? Nothing really. Nothing other than the fact that I am still searching for more like-minded people. Will I ever find/connect with enough people in order to share and inspire? Who knows. Maybe I already have and just haven't given it much thought. Maybe there are hundreds or thousands of people who read my writings/posts everyday but just would rather remain completely anonymous. I guess even if just one person can comprehend my innate ramblings then that person will pass along my message to ten people who will also understand and those ten people will pass it along to ten more people; and so on. And who's to say that they haven't already. Anonymity is one of the most attractive qualities about the internet. So, to all those that read this and my other works  I thank you. To all those who have already read my stuff and passed it along  I thank you. And to all those that remain silent and anonymous but read my stuff everyday  I thank you.

Never judge a book by it's cover.
I don't want the world to see me 'cuz I don't think that they'd understand.

Words of Wisdom From Charles Bukowski

"Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead."

"Do you hate people? I don't hate them…I just feel better when they're not around."

"That's the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen."

"My ambition is handicapped by laziness."

"We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing."

"An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way."

"If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose."

"Real loneliness is not necessarily limited to when you are alone."

"Sex is kicking death in the ass while singing."

"Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I'm not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you've felt that way."

"There is always one woman to save you from another and as that woman saves you she makes ready to destroy."

"Pain is strange. A cat killing a bird, a car accident, a fire…. Pain arrives, BANG, and there it is, it sits on you. It's real. And to anybody watching, you look foolish. Like you've suddenly become an idiot. There's no cure for it unless you know somebody who understands how you feel, and knows how to help."

"Love is all right for those who can handle the psychic overload. It's like trying to carry a full garbage can on your back over a rushing river of piss."

Grateful Depression

 I wrote this as a response to a video but thought I should post it elsewhere too.
 
  I was stuck in a very low frequency for a while as a teenager. So much so that my doctor diagnosed me as clinically "depressed." I took anti-depressants but found that they did more harm to my mental state. Luckily, I gravitated towards music and playing the guitar. Anything I couldn't speak I could express through my guitar. I stopped taking anti-depressants and focused all of my energy on creating and playing music. Funny thing is...I am actually grateful for that experience of "depression." :-)

WE are the ones who will save ourselves!
Keep searching. Keep on searching. This search goes on. On and on.

I think it's weird that a ''meteor'' caused a sonic boom in the midwest but there is no evidence that it crashed or burned into smaller pieces.
Life is like a box of semi-sweet chocolates. You kind of know what to expect.

GREAT BIRTHDAY

 Had a good birthday today. Ate and drank until I couldn't think straight. My Sis got me a transformers cake and my little nephew kept asking me if he could keep the figurines that came with it. I said yes about thirty times. He also decided to do some push-ups in the middle of the restaurant. I don't know why exactly. He's five years old and is already way more adventurous than most adults.
 
 I'm now 27 and I do feel as though I have yet to experience the full potential of what this life and world have to offer. But I do know that the best has yet to come. :-)
 

I'm 27 yrs today. Feels the same as any other age. Of course I've learned so much more than I did at 17 or 21.

Translation

I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong. -John Lennon

WE'RE ALL FREAKS.

I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people. 
 -JOHN LENNON
