Sometimes I need to change directions, work on a different aspect, begin writing something completely off topic. Turn to journalling or blogging or poetry. Switch channels. Go for a walk. Switch genres. Focus on a different character. Read something. Talk to someone. Breathe.(less)

on to the swing laughing
over and over like a frog on the move
hair tied up tight to the top
of the head
after the chocolate

Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil
"There's a lot to like about this book. But is it a "definitive history of punk rock"? Fuck no. Not even close.

Although PLEASE KILL ME features tons of great material from the people who were there at Ground Zero during the Factory and CBGBs scenes, " Read more of this review »

"The oral history of this book really shouldn't work - this book is literally just 400+ pages of interview segments, with no narrator or other third-person perspective to give us historical context or background information. This is, pure and simple, " Read more of this review »
Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil
"As an avid reader (and subsequent loather) of "punk rock" history, I was excited to get into this. And although I didn't get exactly what I was looking for, it's certainly worth a read for those who can stomach it.

I can't claim to not like oral hist" Read more of this review »

“It's a god-eat-god world" - katya”
Katya Mills

“Now I happened to be there, in the chewy maelstrom of his life, by his side. He taught me how to live in this fucked up environment. East Oakland. How to deal with the people. Which ones to avoid. The new currency was trading out what you have for what you need. And then maybe trading up for what you want. The new time was not told by the sun. Light or no light, we lived as things happened. I would soon realize there was no other way.”
Katya Mills, Grand Theft Life

“poisoning the environment by the littering of consequence.”
Katya Mills, Grand Theft Life

“Negative words other than not are usually strong:”
William Strunk Jr., The Elements Of Style

“It's a god-eat-god world" - katya”
Katya Mills

“None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.”
Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

“Das war ein seltsamer Raum, hergerichtet in einem einzigen Stile: bizarre Künstlerlaune. Etrurische und japanische Vasen, spanische Fächer und Dolche, chinesische Schirme und italienische Mandolinen, afrikanische Muschelhörner und kleine antike Statuen, bunte Rokkoko-Nippes und wächserne Madonnen, alte Kupferstiche und Arbeiten aus Meysenberg eigenem Pinsel, - das alles war im ganzen Raum auf Tischen, Etagèren, Konsolen und an den Wänden, welche überdies gleich dem Fußboden mit dicken orientalischen Teppichen und verblichenen gestickten Seidenstoffen bedeckt waren, in schreienden Zusammenstellungen arrangiert, welche gleichsam auf sich selbst mit Fingern wiesen.”
Thomas Mann

“Always mystify, torture, mislead, and surprise the audience as much as possible.”
Don Roff
