Making a mockery of the millions they would dare to lead / Where once was passion

You’ve got the gun
And you’re killing everything I love
You don’t respect it
And what you are yeah I reject it
You’re just a fashion show
And you shit on everything I know
And now I’m seeing red
Cause you pulled the trigger
And metal is dead

This Post IS About You

“There is a space in the brain where a missile could pass without doing any major damage.”

Pretty interesting story with an awkward word-choice by “Dr Patrick Pritchard, an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Alabama-Birmingham[.]”

I think we all know someone that this fits perfectly, though.

I know quite a few.

This Is Not About You

You can stretch the truth
And patience wears you so thin
It’s just as easy to see through
Your high self opinion

I know I might be wrong
But I’m sick of pretending
I’ve listened to you too long
And nothing’s ever mended

–“Renovation” by Helmet

Did You Bring A Horse For Me?

Jill: But… but those were his men.
Harmonica: Yeah.
Jill: And they tried to kill him.
Harmonica: They must’ve found someone who pays better.
Jill: And you… You saved his life!
Harmonica: I didn’t let them kill him, and that’s not the same thing.

What, No Title?

Henry Gibson: Although, so far there’s no known treatment for death’s crippling effects, still everyone can acquaint himself with the three early warning signs of death: one, rigor mortis; two, a rotting smell; three, occasional drowsiness.

I have apples on my side

“The baby rises to its feet, takes a step, is overcome with triumph and joy – and falls flat on its face. It is a pattern for all that is to come! But learn from the bewildered baby. Lurch to your feet again. You’ll make the sofa in the end.”

Justin Hyde’s Work

When wandering through the “underground?-huh? what?” I run across Justin Hyde’s work occasionally. We’ve appeared in some of the same places here and there. His poem: “at my first poetry reading” in the January issue of Zygote in my coffee is fucking great. Check it/them out. I’d post a quote, but it’s kinda short and hard (TWSS). Plus, I don’t want to jump any ethics with this pub–they’re pretty f’ing cool.

Anyway–a link.
