There are men who bloom in chaos. You call them heroes or villains, depending on which side wins the war, but until the battle call they are but normal men who long for action, who lust for the opportunity to throw off the routine of their normal lives like a cocoon and come into their own. They sense a destiny larger than themselves, but only when structures collapse around them do these men become warriors.
When people tell me all they’ve never read Frankenstein…
Best literary art…ever. In my humble but irrefutable opinion.
Hi there, awesome folks. Been super busy but hope things are stable and amazing. And if they’re not stable and amazing, I wish they will become so in the near future.
Today’s Classic: John Tenniel (1820-1914) the original illustrator of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” books.
This has officially become one of my favorite theme songs. It went along with the movie famously.
"Let me have war, say I; it exceeds peace as far as day does night; it’s spritely, waking, audible, and full of vent. Peace is a very apoplexy, lethargy: mulled, deaf, sleepy, insensible; a getter of more bastard children than war’s a destroyer of men." Coriolanus, Act IV scene v, by William Shakespeare.
Happy Birthday, Bill.
You’re the man.
I don’t know what cream they have used on you down at the morgue but I want some.
Yesterday I went to the festival of books and it was amazing. Here are just a couple pics from my visit to the beautiful (kinda) USC campus. I picked up some nice bargains on Batman and Son ($13!) and Shalimar the Clown $5!). So yeah, good day.
Hope you all are fantastico.
Peace and love.
I envy people of faith, for they live in a world of answers. For a man of reason, the world holds only questions.
