What happens if you lose the fight with your personal Demon?

Are you still yourself, or something different? An amalagam of the two, or perhaps just the dominant aspect reigning. Who should know. But it is awfully awfully interesting.


Watch you on the one's and two's.
Through a window in a well lit room.
Become a recluse.
And I blame myself because I make things hard
and you're just trying to help.
And when I wake up you're the first to call.
This is one more late night basement song.
I'm so sore.
My voice has gone to hell.

And this is one more sleepless night because we don't believe in filler.
Baby, if I could I'd sit this out.

This is over when I say it's over.
This is a lesson in procrastination.
I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
Every single second that I put it off means another lonely night I got to race the clock.
I ignore it and it ignores me too.
What say we go crash you car?
And every time I leave you go and lock the door.
So I walk myself picking at a chip on my shoulder.
I'm another day late and one year older.
It's failure by design.

And we just want sleep.
But this night is hell.
I'm sick and sunk and I blame myself because I make things hard
and you're just trying to help.
I got no gas. (No Gas)
I'm winding out my gears.
This is one more day on the verge of tears.
And now my head hurts. (Head hurts)
And my health is a joke.
Now I got to stop because the headphones broke.

We don't believe in filler.
Baby, if I could I'd sit this out.

This is over when I say it's over.
This is a lesson in procrastination.
I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
Every single second that I put it off means another lonely night I got to race the clock.
I ignore it and it ignores me too.
What say we go crash you car?
And every time I leave you go and lock the door.
So I walk myself picking at a chip on my shoulder.
I'm another day late and one year older.
It's failure by design.

I'm out of everything.
But no one sleeps till we get this shit out on the shelves.
It's late. I'm faltering.
But this time I got nothing to say besides:
Do Do Do. Do Do Do.
Do Do Do. Do Do Do. (Get this shit out on the shelf)
Do Do Do. Do Do Do.
Do Do Do. Do Do Do. (Get This shit out on the shelf)
Do Do Do. Do Do Do.
Do Do Do. Do Do Do. (Get this shit out on the shelf)
Do Do Do. Do Do Do.
Nothing to say besides!

This is over when I say it's over.
This is a lesson in procrastination.
I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
Every single second that I put it off means another lonely night I got to race the clock.
I ignore it and it ignores me too.
What say we go crash you car?
And every time I leave you go and lock the door.
So I walk myself picking at a chip on my shoulder.
I'm another day late and one year older.
It's failure by design.

Clearly, he's Benedict for awhile now...

From todays news:

Pope condemns gay marriages as 'anarchy'
Mon Jun 6, 2005 02:49 PM ET

ROME (Reuters) - Pope Benedict, in his first clear pronouncement on gay marriages since his election, on Monday condemned same-sex unions as fake and expressions of "anarchic freedom" that threatened the future of the family.

The Pope, who was elected in April, also condemned divorce, artificial birth control, trial marriages and free-style unions, saying all of these practices were dangerous for the family.

"Today's various forms of dissolution of marriage, free unions, trial marriages as well as the pseudo-matrimonies between people of the same sex are instead expressions of anarchic freedom which falsely tries to pass itself off as the true liberation of man," he said.

The Pope spoke to families at Rome's St. John's Cathedral on an issue that has become highly controversial around the world, particularly in Europe and the United States.

In April, parliament in traditionally Catholic Spain gave initial approval to a law legalizing gay marriage. It is widely expected to be approved by the Senate and to become law.

But just last week, California's Assembly killed off a bill that would have allowed gay marriage in the most populous U.S. state.

The Pope, who as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger headed the Vatican's doctrinal department for more than two decades, said "pseudo freedoms" such as gay marriages were based on what he called the "banalisation of the human body" and of man himself.



Yay for business as usual. This after his claim of a desire to heal woulds and blah blah blah. Seriously Ben, there is worse in the world.

In Strange Aeons, Even Death May Die.

So, I just purchased an almost complete collection of the Beatles. Additionally, I purchased an amazing annotated collection of the works of one Howard Phillips Lovecraft, whom I believe is much unappreciated and unread to the degree he should be, given influence on modern horror. That having been said, the Magical Mystery Tour CD in its entirety is an amazing compliment to Lovecraft. For all the more esoterically headed out there.

All bets in!!!!

So, Pope John Paul (George Ringo) II is back in the hospital again. Who want to go all in on a Pope deathpool?? C'mon folks, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to bet on the death of titular head of Catholicism. You know you want to. I'm totally serious about this too. It'll be 10 bucks to get in, and we'll go on who's closest to the actual date that JP2 shuffles off these mortal coils and, drooling and shaking, makes his way towards whatever eternal reward he is slated for. I for one am so excited I can't stand up straight!

For added fun, and those of us who follow this sort of thing, we can also bet on which scary, conservative Italian/Polish man will become the next Pope!!!Wheeee!!!!!

wassup homies? check out what JPII has to say! he's the heppest.



ROME (Reuters) - Homosexual marriages are part of "a new
ideology of evil" that is insidiously threatening society, Pope
John Paul says in a new book published Tuesday.



In "Memory and Identity," the Pope also calls abortion a
"legal extermination" comparable to attempts to wipe out Jews
and other groups in the 20th century.



He also reveals that he is convinced the Turkish gunman who
shot him in 1981 did not act alone and suggests that the former
Communist Bloc may have been behind the plot to kill him.



The 84-year-old Pontiff's book, a highly philosophical and
intricate work on the nature of good and evil, is based on
conversations with philosopher friends in 1993 and later with
some of his aides.



In one section about the role of lawmakers, the Pope takes
another swipe at gay marriages when he refers to "pressures" on
the European Parliament to allow them.



"It is legitimate and necessary to ask oneself if this is
not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more
insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights
against the family and against man," he writes.



The Pope's fifth book for mass circulation, issued by
Italian publisher Rizzoli, sparked controversy in Germany and
elsewhere after Jewish groups protested against leaked excerpts
comparing the Holocaust to abortion.



In at least two sections of the book, the Pope talks about
the Nazi attempt to exterminate Jews and the wholesale
slaughter of political opponents by Communist regimes after
World War II.



"LEGAL EXTERMINATION"



In following paragraphs he says that legally elected
parliaments in formerly totalitarian countries were today
allowing what he called new forms of evil and new
exterminations.



"There is still, however a legal extermination of human
beings who have been conceived but not yet born," he writes.



"And this time we are talking about an extermination which
has been allowed by nothing less than democratically elected
parliaments where one normally hears appeals for the civil
progress of society and all humanity," he writes.



In Germany, a leader of the country's Central Council of
Jews called the comparison unacceptable.



At a news conference presenting the book, Cardinal Joseph
Ratzinger, the Vatican's top doctrinal official, dismissed the
Jewish charges.



Ratzinger said the Pope "was not trying to put the
Holocaust and abortion on the same plane" but only warning that
evil lurked everywhere, "even in liberal political systems."

Too fast to live, too wierd to die.

Sitting at my computer, I returned to an active state as the Real Folk Blues play in japanese. I go, just for the hell of it to the Drudge Report. Why not. A nice microcosm of crap news. And I read that Sunday, Hunter S. Thompson, AKA Raoul Duke, the father of Gonzo journalism, known political junkie, and one of the most amzing writers, political, fictional or otherwise I have ever had the pleasure to read has ended his life at his compound in Aspen Colorado.


Ironically, Criminal, by Fiona Apple just came on. How appropriate. Hunter mixed reality, fantasy, and a wonderfully sardonic and skewed viewpoint together, creating works of absolute masterpiece. He made himself into the story, as well as the reporter, and one was never certain where reality dragged off and gonzo stepped in. I challenge anyone to find a more entertaining and informative coverage of a political campaign than 'Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail '76'


There's nothing witty to say here. Nothing exciting or funny, or apt. Just incredible sadness, and a hope that whatever would cause such an incredible man, an inspiration of a distinctly different sort, to kill himself is not troubling him any longer. Now he gets to go into history. Exit Dr. Gonzo.

I have a giant bottle of vodka, some scotch, and assorted uppers, downers, reds, blues, laughers and screamers set aside for a proper sending off in a few days. Glasses up to great, folks. G'night Doc.

Yay for TSG!!

C'mon man, this mas is fucking hard like Ozzy. Charge him? They should give him a medal for being so Metal!!!

FEBRUARY 7--A Florida fireman is facing an animal cruelty charge for
allegedly biting the head off a pet parrot during a party early
yesterday morning. Bruce Coates, 34, told police that he was drinking
and could not remember details of the beheading, for which he
apologized. According to the below Volusia County Sheriff's Office
report, Coates was shooting pool with the late parrot's owner and other
partygoers at about 1 AM when he grabbed the bird--a female Quaker
parrot named Isabel--from one reveler's shoulder, put the bird's head
in his mouth, and decapitated it. Coates, who works for the Edgewater
Fire Department, then spit out the parrot's head, tossed the bird's
corpse on the floor, and fled the scene. The parrot's owner, Paul Van
Sickle, told cops that Isabel was a "talking bird" valued at $200, and
was considered a "valued member of his family." Along with the felony
animal cruelty count, Coates was hit with a misdemeanor criminal
mischief charge for damaging the party space's wall and carpet, which
were stained with bird blood.

Culture Club, Boy George, I am a lyrics Whore.

Desert loving in your eyes
All the way
If I listen to your lies would you say
I'm a man without conviction
I'm a man who doesn't know
How to sell a contradiction
You come and go
You come and go

Karma Karma Karma Karma
Karma Chameleon
You come and go
YOu come and go
Loving would be easy
If your colours were like my dream
Red, gold and green
Red, gold and green

Didn't hear your wicked words
Every day
And you used to be so sweet
I heard you say
That my love was an addiction
When we cling
Our love is strong
When you go
You're gone forever
You string along
You string along

Karma Karma Karma Karma
Karma Chameleon
You come and go
YOu come and go
Loving would be easy
If your colours were like my dream
Red, gold and green
Red, gold and green

Every day is like survival
You're my lover
Not my rival
Every day is like survival
You're my lover
Not my rival

I'm a man with conviction
I'm a man who doesn't know
How to sell a contradiction
You come and go
