Profile Information

So I decided to simplfy my profile significantly...

I live in Omaha, and I live for your comments. I'd love to read anything you've got for me. That's what Booksie's all about, right? Feel free to tell me anything at all about my writing. I like mean comments and nice ones.

Here are some quotes I love:

"I have come to believe that the world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth." -Umberto Eco Foucault's Pendulum "I'm just a dog smoking a cigarette outside Pottery Barn." -Chuck Palahniuk Stranger Than Fiction "You're something beautiful: a contradiction. I wanna play the game. I want the friction." -Muse Time is Running Out "I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance" -EE Cummings you shall above all things be glad and young "Inside every cynic is a dissapointed idealist." George Carlin "If one lacks passionate commitment, there is nothing left to do. Then it is best to leave it alone. For basically painting is idiocy." -Gerhard Richter The Daily Practice of Painting "True Wit is Nature to advantage dressed/What oft was thought but ne'er so well expressed." AND "Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring: There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain; And drinking largely sobers us again." -Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism "There is no morality or doctrine which can constrain the individual. Nobody can dictate to it...Altruism is moral cannabilism." -Andrew Vincent Modern Political Ideologies (2nd edition)
