After "The Catcher in the Rye"

Do I hate everyone, everything as much as Holden?

Posted this (above) in 5th of November 2008, after reading Catcher in the Rye, quite obviously. I am reposting this in honor of its creator JD Salinger, who, today, has gone on recluse forever.

"Just because I'm so horribly conditioned to accept everybody else's values, and just because I like applause and people to rave about me, doesn't make it right. I'm ashamed of it. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody. I'm  sick of myself and everybody else that wants to make some kind of a splash."  - Franny, "Franny and Zooey" (JD Salinger)

First postage mail I recieved in mooonths (not including bills and bank statements), and whatdyaknow, it's from Eleonor, my lil sis in Linconshire, UK. And with a £5 to boot!. (Intawn.)

Thank you, dear sister.


"There are some things I need to find."

“A little boy asks me how to get home.
‘I’m looking too,’ I tell him.
Home is the place where everything
I’ve lost is waiting patiently 
for me to find my way back.”
-The Sound of Colors: A Journey of the Imagination

Loser Talk

X: Do you think the likes of us will ever get a chance?
Y: At what?
X: You know, at peace, happiness and all that shit?
Y: Naaah.
X: I figured.
Y: Yaaah.



My skin is covered with sharp spikes

And the rattlesnake said,
"I wish I had hands -- so
I could hug you like a man."
And then the cactus said,
"Don't you understand,
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
That'll stab you like a thousand knives.
A hug would be nice,
But hug -- my flower with your eyes."
- Tree Hugger, Kimya Dawson


I wish I had more time to write.

As it is, it's already 1:11 a.m. I have to update all my blogs, or all my online self-publishing endeavors. One day, I'm gonna sit down all night, all day, all week to do just that and then some. One day.


Project 2010

It's clean slate day and I'm unveiling my 2010 daily photo project (among others!).

I was thinking of inserting it here, but since this blog is a bit topsy-turvy and I couldn't make it otherwise, since I got to have all these baggage like links, causes, rss feeds and what-not, so it's probably best to have a dedicated blog just for it: 2010 Daily Me.

I drink your milkshake 2010!

Clean slates. Don't we all just love them?

2010. I claim thee.
