mad to talk, mad to be saved

“Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed. Results like these do not belong on the résumé of a Supreme Being. This is the kind of shit you'd expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. And just between you and me, in any decently-run universe, this guy would've been out on his all-powerful ass a long time ago. And by the way, I say "this guy", because I firmly believe, looking at these results, that if there is a God, it has to be a man.

No woman could or would ever fuck things up like this. So, if there is a God, I think most reasonable people might agree that he's at least incompetent, and maybe, just maybe, doesn't give a shit. Doesn't give a shit, which I admire in a person, and which would explain a lot of these bad results.” 

-George Carlin

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”

-Jack Kerouac from On The Road

Teendom is probably the biggest fantasy I could ever think to experience. It's just a completely symbolic time period. It's a symbol of freedom and rebellion and I just love everything being a teen stands for. 


  1. oh i completely agree even though i think teendom is somewhat sensationalised in movies, books, tumblr photos etc. i mean whose life really is like a character from skins? (have you ever watched skins?)

    i honestly never want to grow up. i volunteered once at this gardening thing and there were middle-aged/oldish people everywhere and all they talked about was like driving their kids to childcare and making healthy child-friendly smoothies, i mean maybe it was just the crowd i was hanging with but if all middle-aged people are like that i dont wannaaa beee :(

    enjoy your summer while i freeze in australia x
