Zora Neale Hurston (author of Their Eyes Were Watching God — great book) has some of the best quotes.
One of my long-time favorites is:
Sometimes I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
No man may make another free.

I just have to sing a bit of praise for Amazon’s customer service setup and their return policy/website organization. It’s good. all of it. Actually, it’s great.

Is I am Legend supposed to be a vampire story? Cuz I don’t see it. I haven’t read the book, though, so perhaps I’m missing the original portrayal? The movie’s definitely not a vampire story. Just because the monsters have sharp teeth and beget other monsters and are hurt by light does not make them vampires.
Very stressful movie. All of it. Lonely and hurt and angry and determined and desperate and hopeful and hopeless.. Always anticipating something monstrous jumping out at any moment.. ruhlly stressful. Moving, though. I’m confused by the end of it. I mean, it ended well…as far as endings go.. But.. I know it’s all “who are we to question” and what not,… I’m not there yet.. ::thinking::
I don’t think it’s ever occurred to me that “laughter” could be turned to “slaughter” with the simple addition of an “s”. That disconcerted me quite a bit, for some reason.
An agent of chaos cannot be viewed with merciful eyes. He’s fascinating, and even appreciable if you can bend your mind around, but he is beyond saving, and an asylum/prison is a silly place to put something that promises itself as an unstoppable force of destruction. It’s not even as simple as kill or be killed, it comes down to something much simpler. He won’t just kill you, he’ll maim, torment, kill, destroy—according to whim and level of chaos factor—your family, friends, city. And you won’t kill him because it’s against your morals? As far as a selfish choice goes…
I’ve been turning down chocolate sometimes lately. The universe might implode.
I really like my music.
The single thing I knew about Wanted going into it was that Angelina Jolie is in it.
I enjoyed it. It has its faults, and it’s difficult to properly appreciate a movie while the people you’re watching it with clearly will dislike it throughout, but I’m standing by an overall liking it.
The only thing I know of the Batman movie is what I’ve seen from previews in theaters. That and Heath Ledger = amazing joker.and no longer alive. I think after watching the movie I’m going to especially hope he defies all laws of the universe and turns up alive and well somewhere.
Violin Song’s been running through my head today. especially the mop, and also the hippo and speck of dust.
I am soooo sleepy right now. Ugh. really so much the sleep feeling of the sleep wanting to sleepness.
Silly Firefox. They want a download record,
they know they’re an awesome webbrowser and everyone loves them
no surprise that their sites are all down now, since the “download record” start time started 4 minutes ago. I’m sure they tried to be prepared….
firefox.com, spreadfirefox.com, mozilla.com, mozilla.org
All not loading.
Well, my dear and trusty Filehippo has it. Firefox 3.0 available in its entirety for speedy download.
+1 for Filehippo.
Covers view on Goodreads (when viewing lists) is happy.
Revisiting David Mack’s Kabuki. I’m enthralled again. Breathtaking art, all round.
I’m apparently on a graphic novel kick these days.
And Amazon’s had this 4-for-3 deal that’s been kicking my ass(wallet) a bit.
I’ve been eating a LOT of cherries.
I think I’m going to try sleeping on a bed tonight. How novel. (Last three nights on armchair seems to have provided for progress.)
Incredible Hulk or Kung-Fu Panda?
The fish, no matter what side of the stone he gets to, never reaches the ?other? side.
How to Move a Tree by William R. Stimson, from issue 65 of the Kyoto Journal (one of the best publications, ever).
But then one day we find that somehow it has reached us ? and recognize, with surprise and astonishment, the other side.
