About this author

I'm a person who writes about what he knows and about what he doesn't know.

While currently happy and creative, I spent much of my life struggling with various forms of mental illness, including endogenous depression, OCD and bipolar disorder. So when I write about psychology and how we can free ourselves from mental suffering I'm writing from experience. For this more serious writing I use the name Joe Blow.

When it comes to my humorous erotica, I don't write from experience. It would be hard to find someone less experienced in the sexual arena than myself, but how many science fiction writers have actually been to Mars? My specialty here is smutty genre parodies with an anarchistic slant in that authority figures (usually male) come a cropp

description

This passage from How to be Free seems particularly relevant in the light of the recent murder of cartoonists in Paris. (In the book I talked of a cartoonist who had been murdered, but I'm not sure that that was the case at the time. Threats had been made against Kurt Westergaard. That might have been what I was thinking of.)

There was a case of certain individuals from a particular religious fa... Read more of this blog post »

“The door to heaven is open to us at any time we are willing to accept that we are of absolutely no importance. The bars of our own hell - the “mind-forged manacles” as Blake put it - are our attempts to justify ourselves or prove our self-worth. Accept that none of this matters and we can see that heaven is all around us. It is there in a child’s smile, in the rain that waters the earth, even in the maggots that rise in new life from dead meat. All around us is evidence that life and love are eternal and unbroken by strife and suffering.”
Aussiescribbler, How to be Free

“Ook, though very clever, was the worst fighter in the tribe. That is how he ended up with Grot-Grot as his woman. Grot-Grot had a bald patch on the top of her head, she was missing an eye and she smelled like a dead skunk. She did have a good sense of humour though.”
Aussiescribbler, Queens of the Stone Age

“When your mother is the grave and your father is a lightning bolt it tends to make you kind of horny. And death has a way of removing one's inhibitions.”
Aussiescribbler, Transylvanian Roulette

“Dogma is a defence against the brain’s capacity for free thought based on the fear that such thought might lead to a scary place.”
Joe Blow

“A faith so weak that it is not sufficient unto itself but requires that others tiptoe around it for fear of hurting it, knows deep down that it is a lie.”
Joe Blow

Aussiescribbler, How to be Free

“Sanity is actually a pretence, a way we learn to behave. We keep this pretence up because we don't want to be rejected by other people - and being classified insane is to be shut out of the group in a very complete way.
Most people I meet are secretly convinced that they're a little crazier than the average person. People understand the energy necessary to maintain their own shields, but not the energy expended by other people. They understand that their own sanity is a performance, but when confronted by other people they confuse the person with the role.
Sanity has nothing directly to do with the way you think. Its a matter of presenting yourself as safe.”
Keith Johnstone, Impro: Improvisation and the Theatre
