Syntax Error

Attempting to be clever and/or witty, yet achieving neither...

Slam grand
Crowd in the loner
Doubt of the benefit
Crime organised down
Beware the March of Ides
No such thing as a lunch free
All your base are belong to us
Radio to the dance dance dance
Bored is this what happens when

I don't know what that means, but I know that I mean it...

Remorse Code

Quotes from "The Demon" By Hubert Selby Jr.

Tensions and nameless fears... one would know what was said. But the feelings would be remembered, as feelings always are, long after the words and the circumstances have passed beyond recall.

Memories, like ancient history, can easily disappear when their when their pertinence to today is ignored, and then they eventually reappear and become current events.

Then the morning and the goddamn feelings of guilt and remorse that churn your sweating body and dull your mind without ever really identifying themselves...

There never is a real difference between ancient history and current events. There are only variations; the theme is always the same.

...the terrible conflict as he became a battleground for the hounds of heaven and the hounds of hell...

Year of the Rat/ Subprime Credit Crunch

the joy of pain

the pain of joy

Just do it! ( I know I didn't make that up...)

Just do it, or maybe think about doing it first? You'll probably still do it anyway, but be more content in the knowledge that you dissected the issues, weighed up the components involved and thoroughly knew what you were getting into. The result of which will, of course be exactly the same as if you'd just done it, but you'll possibly have the smug satisfaction of thinking you in some way have control over things outside of yourself. Which is what we all really want anyway, don't we? But remember to tell people you just did it, cos over-thinking is for nerds and doesn't have a snappy slogan...

Greek goddess who personifies victory my arse...

Humans Should Smile More


I know I can sound like a real sad sack occasionally and take everything pretty seriously sometimes, but I now realise even if only temporarily that it's not really that bad. Things in general are actually pretty good, but fear, mysticism and most other natural emotions along with a tendency to take what we have for granted cloud our judgements, making us think that it is alot worse than it is. I mean there are lots of really shitty things happening on planet earth, but if we all just chill out and forget ourselves, I'm sure it will turn out fine. I mean it's not really gonna last that long so pretend it's a roller coaster and take it as it comes. Okay that doesn't really mean shit so go watch "Little Miss Sunshine" or some other bittersweet movie to give you some perspective. Or go on holiday and fill your mind and your days with lots of shit that makes you realise we're all whinging bitches...

Some people would rather see the world explode than lose the nail off their little finger...

Overlords of the Underclass

Just finished reading my new favourite book, so now I'm going to endorse it and generally recommend to anyone even slightly interested in the history of Christianity, but without too much of an entrenched or rigid view that may be challenged. Well actually you don't really need to give two tosses about God as long as you like a good book. Anyway said book is called "My Name Was Judas" By C.K Stead, so go get it now before I write another post about something else! I highly recommend it. It was so good I read it in like three days. Warning: May make you think about things!

Here is my humble tribute:
(For some reason most of the words start with the letter 'R'.)

Reunification repelled
Reckless revolutionaries wreck reality
Restless ravens ravage randomly
Rinsed raiders rise romantically
Real religion rallies resistively
Rights ruined remain removed
Roman rules ride rough-shot
Raising rebellion remembered resonantly
Roots really reassert ruthlessness
Ragged rabbles rouse resentful rabbis
Regional rivalries resist reason

I apologise in advance.
