we intend to destroy all dogmatic verbal systems - w.s. burroughs
la vida del santo!
soon or later, we are all americans !
body, mind, and soul. that's what unifies !
The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.
Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: 'Is this real? Or is this just a ride?' And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid - ever - because... this is just a ride.' And we kill those people.
'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.'
It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that - ever notice that? - and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because... it's just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy bigger guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.
Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over - not one human being excluded - and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace.
- another fallen hero
"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustable well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even concieve of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless."

the South will RISE again !
Hear me people. We have now to deal with another race – small and feeble when our fathers first met them, but now great and overbearing. Strangely enough they have a mind to till the soil and the love of possession is a disease with them. These people have made many rules that the rich may break, but the poor may not. They take their tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich and those who rule.
- Chief Sitting Bull, speaking at the Powder River Conference in 1877
The Powder River Conference ended ninety-five years ago, but the old Chief’s baleful analysis of the White Man’s rape of the American continent was just as accurate then as it would be today if he came back from the dead and said it for the microphones on prime-time TV. The ugly fallout from the American Dream has been coming down at a pretty consistent rate since Sitting Bull’s time – and the only real difference now… is that we seem to be on the verge of ratifying the fallout and forgetting the Dream itself… This may be the year we finally come face to face with ourselves; finally just lay back and say it – that we are really just a nation of 220 million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.

|Subject: know any drummers who aren\'t wankbags?|
|So, I rent a car and drive down to Newport yesterday for band practice and I get ambushed. Jay shows up and proceeds to bitch me out for 15 minutes, basically implying that he and Tim do everything and I'm not doing enough for the band...You might have to read that last one twice. I've missed a whopping 2 practices, so my lifestyle (not having a car apparently) is supposedly affecting the band and Jay thinks I'm holding back their progess. (pause for laughter)...there's more but it would be alot to type, but long story short, I have doubts as to whether this will be resolved in a manner that includes the band staying together unless he pulls his head of of his ass really fast, so...know any drummers?|
