It Can’t Be Conquered

What do you do when you have reached the mountaintop?
You stand in awe of the sky.

How do they get every TJ Maxx to smell the same?

White men can’t jump. Oh yeah?! Well, black people can’t ice skate. There, how do you like that, black people? Didn’t think so. Take that one.

All blood is red and all tears are similar.

Everybody knows a guy named Jerry.

If you don’t play like it’s the playoffs during the regular season, then you might not get there.

I was sitting around and I realized I hate being stationary, so I became a printer.

Not all people work for their money - some just go to work for it.

To know what it feels like to not know. That is what it is like as a kid. And, once you know, you can’t unknow. Well, you might be able to. But, I don’t know how to do that.

If you got cable, you aint poor.
If you’re fat, you aint poor.
If you regularly buy cigarettes, you aint poor.
If you have six cats which you buy food for, you aint poor.
If you buy lottery tickets even on the remotely regular, you aint poor.
Perhaps these are all the reasons you think you are poor.

Crazy is cool, but you never want to reach a point where people think of you as, “mentally unwell.”

Does the camera lie about adding 10 pounds?

My non domesticated wife’s blood is fine, but she’s still iron deficient. The other day my shirt was wrinkly.

I can’t picture a midget dictator.

If you go swimming in a lake and you get out really deep and then all of a sudden you get Alzheimer’s disease, do you forget how to swim and then drown?

If you burn to death in a house fire and you wanted to be cremated - hey, you’re good!

Everything costs about 30 dollars.

A: Chicks are for fags. Guys who like chicks are gay.
B: So every guy in the world is a fag?
A: Well, not the gay ones, they’re straight.

The city is a sentence. The town is a paragraph. The woods is a book.

You have to get old enough to notice that life is too short.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Joe Jackson beat his kids. He already was guilty of the worst form of child abuse- he named his daughter Latoya.

“How’s that headache?” - Dad
“I’m gonna drink a little, see if it goes away.” - Me

Life advice: Don’t you go purposely getting syphilis in order to be a great artist.

As far as made up, symbolic, holiday creation figures are concerned, the Easter Bunny has nothing on Santa Claus. Then again, neither of them have anything on Jesus Christ.

What happens if the Kings first born male is retarded?

So, what have we figured out tonight besides nothing?

The Beat Of The Drum

We have assassinated the sun
with our fluorescence

Murdered our life
by the way we live it

Slaughtered our existence
by not being part of it

Mutilated nature
by attempting to control it

We’ve sent our own lives
to the gallows
blindfolding ourselves with ignorance
as we continue stepping
towards our own

One To Remember

“I love growing. I love getting older. I’m getting old and I know it. I have two nephews and a niece and every day they get older, and so do I.”

I think as I enter my car after delivering a pizza to 19 Country Club Avenue, Adams MA on Friday December 31, 2010 at 8:28 pm.

I write this while crying.

Recent Thoughts

I can’t wait until Tyra Banks stops trying to be Oprah.

If you want to know humanity, walk into any McDonalds in a big city and just observe.

Other animals appear to live in total social anarchy and seem to be doing just as good if not better than we are.

I really don’t care what Einstein had to say.

We all might be just a shadow of something more than us.

The human race started to fall once they felt the need to cover their sexual organs with clothing.

I’m getting a little sick of all the tattoos.

Fuck unexamined traditions.

A writer gets to be a bum, and no one seems to notice.

Writing is insanity disguised as art.

Writing should be…
one hundred percent fun
one hundred percent pain
one hundred percent drive
one hundred percent perfect
one hundred percent let go
one hundred percent of your everything
one hundred percent amazing
one hundred percent love
one hundred percent escape
one hundred percent flow
one hundred percent life
one hundred percent mystery
one hundred percent you
one hundred percent everything else
one hundred percent observance
one hundred percent work
one hundred percent easy
one hundred percent release
one hundred percent contradiction
one hundred percent not

I’m not sure who is more insane, the people who actually believe that the Noah’s ark story was real, or those who feel as though they have to go out of their way to prove it wasn’t.

I’m going to start wearing Fubu and South Pole just to bring it back. That’ll make me cool.

“You should hate me” she told me.
“You should love me” was the response it took me too long to think of.

No matter how easy you try to let someone down, they’re still falling the same distance.

A good woman is better than any mountain there ever was.

A man was standing there, alone. It was a dark room. A door slightly opened, and a small bit of white light entered the room. He could see, slightly. He started to cry, for some unknown reason. He couldn’t quite understand it. But, he had found his way out of the darkness. He walked towards the door, and opened it, revealing a sea of white, luminescent light which took over his entire body. The darkness behind him faded. He was not sure what he had just found, but it was enough.

For every wave splashing in the oceans another man takes his life.

We live in a world where there is such a thing known as a “cake decorator.”

The herd has yet to be sick. They are still appreciating their way of slowly plodding through life, face to the ass of the next in a line moving to somewhere they don’t know, blinded by the next person who is just following another.

We bleed yellow from McDonalds, we perspire Pepsi, our energy is made up of frozen microwave dinners.

I don’t need a bag for one item at the grocery store.
I am not going to buy that extra thing on top of the register that the company is pushing this week.
I refuse to buy a candy bar unless it is on sale, and perhaps not even then.
I can’t think of a good reason why South Park shouldn’t be taught in schools.
For all the people I almost hit while driving but I didn’t have time to stop and say it, “I’m sorry, I should have been more careful.”
I love sitting in my living room for hours and not hearing one car go by outside.
I find that we don’t thank the sun nearly enough. And, we need to stop complaining about the rain.

You always keep learning, but somehow, you still never truly know anything.

Thanks for reading, John.
