Black Butterflies by John Shirley

“I could not ignore their withering glances. They looked at me the way real vampires look at Count Chocula.”
Norm Macdonald, Based on a True Story

“Women are attracted to funny men, it is often said. This is not true. It only appears this way because women laugh at everything a very handsome man says. So this gives the very handsome men the idea that they are funny.”
Norm Macdonald, Based on a True Story

Clay Shirky
“Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution.”
Clay Shirky

Allan Bloom
“The end result is that there can be no more truth or goodness and no need or even ability to make tough choices. Where the purpose of higher education once was to enable the student to find truth, the modern university teaches that there is no truth, only 'lifestyle.”
Allan Bloom, The Closing of the American Mind

“Death is a funny thing. Not funny haha, like a Woody Allen movie, but funny strange, like a Woody Allen marriage.”
Norm Macdonald, Based on a True Story
