I'm slashing prices!!!

"[He was given to] self-righteous misanthropy, annihilistic moods of despair. He had complaints about life, but never any solutions. He longed to be an artist, but balked at the necessary sacrifices. In his most private moments, he spoke of his fear of death, which he elevated to tragic heights when in fact it was mere narcissism."

"When monster is loose, boards must be tight."

My favorite diaries:

amishboy profile - diary
comments: "Moses' Staffing - for all your Christian staffing needs. We part the Red Sea of Human Resources." Why aren't more diaries concerned with this type of thing?

comments: His childhood days seem so familiar...is he...ME? If I was a boy in the cold northwest, perhaps...

My favorite music:

comments: Peter Gabriel era mostly, or at least pre- "And Then There Were Three". Laugh at me if you will, but you will miss the bliss
Steely Dan
comments: Dude--the Dan, man. 'Nough said. And I have never said the phrase "'Nough said" before. That's how much I like them.
Siouxsie and the Banshees
comments: A big part of late adolesence
Tom Waits
comments: post HEARTATTACK AND VINE. The man is a genius. A poet. A musician. A fabulous actor.
A cast of millions
comments: I love most anything that isn't top forty, or involves the phrases "Achy Breaky" or "Jesus is Awesome!". Everything from Jethro Tull to Public Enemy to Hoagy Carmichael to Gary Numan to Stevie Wonder to Philip Glass., etc.

My favorite movies:

comments: The best romantic comedy ever. The best opening scene and the best last line ever. Makes me love New York and I HATE New York.
Nightmare Before Christmas
comments: Beautiful
Anything by Wes Anderson
comments: Genius!! His movies make me want to jump up and down with delight!
Anything by the Coen Brothers
comments: Also Genius! Though that "Intolerable Cruelty" was a little lame.
Television greats:
comments: Father Ted, Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends, Mr. Show, Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Awful Truth, Aqua Teen Hunger Force

My favorite authors:

Mary Webb
comments: Amazing.
Gerard Manley Hopkins
comments: Religious, and yet STILL he leaves me speechless. Nobody can conjure angst like that man can.
Charlotte Bronte
comments: No surprise here. Early feminist. Champion of the individual. Defender of integrity at all costs.
Carson McCullers
comments: THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER just sort of sums it up.
Anthony Trollope
comments: Jus' plain fun
