"At its most basic, my understanding is that a vampire is an apex predator that feeds on humans. I never understood the sexual nature of "Twilight" because I can't understand why the vampire would want to have a romance with what is basically food. I like beef. I've never romanced a cow. Same for pigs."

A very valid point.
"When it became the political interest of certain people to endeavor to minimize my part in the Santiago fighting (which was merely like that of various other squadron, battalion and regimental commanders) some of my opponents laid great stress on the alleged fact that the cavalry did not charge up San Juan Hill. We certainly charged some hills; but I did not ask their names before charging them."
Col. Theodore Roosevelt, from his autobiography.
"The lonesome friends of science say The world will end most any day Well, if it does, then that's okay 'Cause I don't live here anyway I live down deep inside my head Where long ago I made my bed"
-John Prine "Lonesome Freinds of Science"
He`ll be missed.
Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.
—Neil Gaiman on the art of critique
"1600, 1600, 1600 on the SATs Said they gettin', said they gettin' Said they gettin' me an SUV Just a couple miles from the lights of the city Pour a little liquor in my Starbucks Venti Just 11, just 11 when they said I had the ADD I've been trying to keep up with all of these great expectations So I keep on faking We're secretly out of control, nobody knows it But my mom's got a problem with oxy's and she's angry Cause my dad's office door's always closed But I stopped knocking Yeah, we're secretly out of control and everyone knows Oh, it's morning in America"

Touches so close to my own life it`s a little unsettling.
"I wonder why I feel emptiness and I sing these blues I wonder why I feel hopelessness when I watch the news I wonder why I can't find my voice in my dreams I wonder why they say hate your brother and hide your gold I wonder why we all fear the things that we might not know I wonder why I can't find my voice in my dreams Although I guess if I knew tomorrow I guess I wouldn't need faith I guess if I never fell, I guess I wouldn't need grace I guess if I knew His plans, I guess He wouldn't be God So maybe I don't know, maybe I don't know Maybe I don't know, maybe I don't know But maybe that's okay"
"All this shit, I can't explain Is it by design or random fate, yeah"
-"Maybe IDK" Jon Bellion
Like I said in the music thread I feel like this is less about any capital G god and more having spirituality and faith in general along with the idea that it`s ok to not know sometimes. Which given the times I think that`s a pretty good message.
I have a hell a lot of the latter quote that I often ask that same question.
"I hate you for what you did
And I miss you like a little kid
I faked it every time but that's alright
I can hardly feel anything
I hardly feel anything at all"
I have emotional motion sickness
Somebody roll the windows down
There are no words in the English language
I could scream to drown you out"
-Phoebe Bridgers "Motion Sickness"
....makes me think of my step father...or rather the effects...
Stepfathers! Run away!
Seven years dead this month say we got the headstart on the running there.
"Look, I think they set us up to let us down
Cause I don't quite know what to do, where to go, who I am, where I am right now
Thought I would be on top, with a pool and a yacht by 29
23, she's pregnant, I'm unemployed, we gon' be fine
Or so I hope, will I choke, will I stay afloat
Record label, no, let me go, got me losing hope
I left college with no degree, oh woe is me
This debt addressed to boulevard of broken dreams
When I'm 30 I'll be sold out at the stadium
House big as palladium, you can let Tom Brady in
These naked girls Canadian, this private jet my favorite
To wave at aliens, that's what I thought when I was 20
I had plenty bumps and bruises
Wrong turns, wins and loses
Reality was gruesome when it grew from the illusion
Feel like I was headed somewhere don't remember where it was
Somebody yelled, "Join the club!""
-Spose "We all got lost"
Nobodys pregnant though....
and I only aspire to eat the rich.
Who ya' quoting?
From a song, they almost always are. It`s there at the bottom but i`ll bold it.
Spose, The King of Main.
Ah, gotcha, I mistook that for the last line of the quote, sorry.
I fed the rich to the pour.
Like lumpy milk?
From the thurd titty!
"Thou art like one of those fellows that, when he enters the confines of a tavern, claps me his sword upon the table and says “God send me no need of thee!” and, by the operation of the second cup, draws it on the drawer when indeed there is no need."
