Before you make your own way you cannot help anyone, and no one can help you. To be independent in this true sense, we have to forget everything which we have in our mind and discover something quite new and different moment after moment. This is how we live in this world.

Shunryu Suzuki, “Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind”

I’ve been circling back to this quote over the past week and really thinking about it, and I don’t know what I have to say on it from a personal standpoint quite yet. But I’m sure that I’ll come up with something.

DATA: We are more alike than unlike, my dear Captain. I have pores. Humans have pores. I have fingerprints. Humans have fingerprints. My chemical nutrients are like your blood. If you prick me, do I not… leak?

From the Star Trek TNG episode, “The Naked Now.”

I swear to God, if there ever arises an android with the capability to make puns, I’m moving to the next fucking galaxy. That’s it. That’s the end of the world. Will out. Beam me wayyyyy up, Scotty.

Day 13: your favorite qoute???? (quote????) (spelling mistake lol!!!!!!!)

I have plenty of quips from famous people that I live by, including this one from musical visionary and absurdist genius Frank Zappa:

"One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people’s minds."

Of course, I take no greater pleasure in reflecting on the words of wonderful people. It’s therefore understandable that I follow the sayings of a man very close to my heart: Myself.

  • "Ham has no odor." ~Will Sisskind, on the beauty of processed food products.
  • "If I can write the equivalent of regurgitated fecal matter, then so can you." ~Will Sisskind, on motivation.
  • "Skanks On A Train. Let’s make it happen." ~Will Sisskind, pitching the next great American motion picture.
  • "i am a BIG HUGE ASSFACE BAGVAGINA HEAD." ~Will Sisskind, on being yourself.
  • "My mother is putting my entire life in your hands." ~Will Sisskind, on responsibility.
  • "NO" ~Will Sisskind, on anything that his roommate Cool Bro does.

There are more, but frankly I just have volumes upon volumes of old anecdotes and it would take months of scrolling for you just to get through all of them.

New theme!

It’s not new. It’s just a rehashing of an older theme with random quotes on the top and a new logo and stuff. Also, it looks cleaner.

Also, did you know that chicken soup is really salty when you don’t add water?
