“We were born to be friends. We both knew it. The Australian Aborigines have the traditional belief that a complete human being comprises two parts that are split before birth, that we spend our lives seeking the other part to make ourselves whole again, and that only the lucky succeed in doing so.”
John Grant, Clockwork Phoenix: Tales of Beauty and Strangeness

“This pain
It is a glacier moving through you
And carving out deep valleys
And creating spectacular landscapes”
John Grant

“Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. … The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
Stephen King

“At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist. This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - relief or despair. Only Skagra responded to it by thinking - 'wait a second. That means there's a situation vacant!”
Gareth Roberts, Doctor Who: Shada

“It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.”
James Baldwin

“Lovely thing about Adam, and why I loved him, was that he was kind to me when it mattered and he had seen a lot too. It’s hard to be among vanilla bastards all the time. Normal people can get genuinely upset about a bad haircut, cross words, sick cats. It’s hard not to roll your eyes and say the wrong thing.”
Denise Mina, Conviction

Jim Crocker John,

You're reading MY reviews. Good grief!

Most importantly, you need to see this clip on YouTube, which is the source of my question: "Who's on first." This is classic American humor from two guy dating back probably into the 1950's. I just love them and hope you will too.

Cheers!

Jim in Missoula, Montana
