I've been a fan Blake Nelson ever since his cult classic GIRL back in the 90's. The narrator of RED PILL, Martin, is similar to GIRL's Andrea, in that they are both kind of hapless, upbeat, charming people with interesting (but not judgemental) insig ...more

“Well that's exactly the magic of the Backstreet Boys.

They Transcend all that stuff.”
Maggie Thrash, Honor Girl: A Graphic Memoir

“Everything was the same. That shouldn’t have surprised me - wasn’t it always the same? But it seemed unbelievable this time that things could just go on, oblivious of me, with no sympathy for the fact that I was a different person now.”

“The only serious question in life is whether to kill yourself or not.”
Albert Camus

“Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential — as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth.

You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you’ll hear about them.

To invent your own life’s meaning is not easy, but it’s still allowed, and I think you’ll be happier for the trouble.”
Bill Watterson
