When she finally laid an egg, it was perfectly round and oddly scaly, but he cracked it over the old cast iron skillet because he was hungry and curious and wired wrong in that way, and that's how he died- a one man audience to a show that never should have been dropped on a hot stage, or any stage at all.(less)

Some books you like, others you find interesting, and rarely, sometimes you read one and feel like you've made a friend. I was sorry when I closed The Return of Kid Cooper at the end. A great read.

“Tramp stamp. A tattoo in the center of a woman's lower back. Also referred to as a "California bumper sticker." The germans refer to this as "arschgeweih," which translates as "ass antler." Bravo!”
Jeff Johnson, Tattoo Machine: Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life in Ink

“Crazy people can add character to a place. If the ambience in your bar is off, or your lobby has gone inexplicably stale, consider picking up a lunatic. They're not hard to come by, and the often work for free. A lot of tattoo shops have one. Larger places might find it handy to keep two or three around.”
Jeff Johnson

“Over the past four decades, much evidence has accumulated suggesting that responsiveness — a software application’s ability to keep up with users and not make them wait — is the most important factor in determining user satisfaction. Not just one of the most important factors - the most important factor.”
Jeff Johnson, GUI Bloopers 2.0: Common User Interface Design Don'ts and DOS
