originally humans were combined with four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spending their lives searching for the other half to complete them

take ye heed, every one of his neighbors

Then too – a nasty thought which can worm its way into the happiest among us on our sunniest days, but it’s got to be faced – can you be wholly secure about your friends and loved ones? Strangers can cheat you, but only intimates can betray you. Leaf through your Bible in search of consolation and you might light upon these verses: “Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoreth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.”

a vision of now

Here we are, my dears, the autumn of twenty-o-five.

And it’s very strange. The sultry summer lingers

Into October; the foliage that by now was always

Bright is drab and withered; and we are far

Too dry, except where the hurricanes rage and floods

Carry off our houses. Is this then our last

Autumn? The radio is insisting, “Log on, log on.”

And then the television is pleading, “Log on now.”

And signs and portents are everywhere, although

They are bewildering, because no one knows how

To interpret them. Persons of faith are tremulous

And unsure, while those of science apparently

Cannot read nature’s peculiar new vocabulary.

Each of us is proceeding at a different pace,

Stumbling or running, aimless or straight

To a distant remembered door. The spendthrifts

Sing Auld Lang Syne and tip up goblets of fine

European brandy. Others are creeping and

Wandering, weeping and wondering. For we are

The new refugees, going nowhere. We are this

Old and horrifying pitiful dream come true.

-Hayden Carruth, from “The Beginning of the End” published posthumously.

They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice… that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.

Love the ribbon around the boner. Classy touch.

To call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people.

I’ve known sheep who could outwit you. I’ve worn dresses with higher IQs, but you think you’re an intellectual, don’t you, ape?

Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather. -Bill Hicks
