“I’m 87 years old…I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive.. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there’s nothing. Like there was before I was born. I’m not really into religion, they’re all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.
The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.
Anybody else you’ve interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call….. Hey, brother. That’s great, man. Yeah, I’m being interviewed… We’re talking about nothing. I’ve got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He’s stopped asking questions.”
Sweet lad, tender lad,
Have no shame, you’re mine for good;
We share a sole insurgent fire,
We live in boundless brotherhood.

Embedded in a single shell.

Vogue Magazine’s, April 2014 Cover boy & Cover Girl. What’s up with this move and is it because ALL the Top Models go on sabbaticals at the same time?
These two (we don’t really know why their famous people, people) have done everything wrong since we started being suffocated with News of their daily debacles, day in, day out. Now magazines like Vogue U.S. are attempting to romanticize what most of us view as two ‘train wrecks’ getting ready to go up in flames! This move by Vogue U.S. really does emphasize societies attempt to make do with what we have as, Celebrities.
Yes, at one time, I too was young & foolish as well. I think! But, I am grateful it didn’t get to the tabloids. Cause, if it had, I would now have to explain it ALL to my Children while trying to make it seem oh so “Cool”.
It appears that we like to celebrate the bad Boys & the Bad Girls. But. As soon as they stop being oh so very BAD, we want to wrap them up in a nice bowl of cotton candy & throw kisses at them. Yuk…..uukk! This is really, really much too sweet for any of us to bare.
