Ray Bradbury
“The good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

H.G. Wells
“They haven't any spirit in them - no proud dreams and no proud lusts; and a man who hasn't one or the other-Lord! What is he but funk and precautions.”
HG Wells, The War of the Worlds

“The schoolmastering profession has always attracted homosexual flagellants”
Burgo Partridge, A History of Orgies

“Every fictioneer re-invents the world because the facts, things or people of the received world are unacceptable.”
Geoffrey Wolff

H.G. Wells
“We can't have any weak or silly. Life is real again, and the useless and cumbersome and mischievous have to die. They ought to die. They ought to be willing to die. It's a sort of disloyalty, after all, to live and taint the race.”
HG Wells, The War of the Worlds

The Land Of Pussy & Ice (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: I haven't posted any 'writing' on here yet, and figured what the hell. Seeing as I don't do any writing, I'm just going to type the lyrics to a song I wrote back when I was a punk-ass bitch, jamming with a band called Accretion Disc around the turn of the millennium. That whole endeavor went to shit in a spectacular and horrific wreckage which is still spoken of in hushed whispers in the jit-drenched back alleys of dive bars scattered amidst the suburbs of Chicago. Our lead singer, perhaps the most narcissistic bag of shit I've ever met, abruptly decided the band was a vehicle for his own self-serving motives after a New Years Eve show, in which he mind-bogglingly saw himself as a new rock messiah preaching to a tremendous crowd of about 60 loyal and zealous acolytes. Rumor has it that his new band is playing the Warped Tour this year, and I checked out their myspace page to see if this unholy abortion would really be given stage-time, and sure enough, my friend-turned-nemesis was indeed given a chance at the meteoric rise he'd been masturbating over for so long, while looking at his reflection in the mirror dressed as a woman. While I can only weep that someone would promote his untalented ass, it is pretty funny that this poor, unscrupulous spritz of salamander sperm has been reduced to a mascara-wearing androgynous piece of fuck-bait. The song was a response to the aforementioned asshole’s displeasure that any time he asked me for songwriting input I gave him certifiable garbage, inane and diddling rooster shit that even brain-damaged gluesniffers wouldn’t bother with. So, the bassist and I showed our genuine appreciation for his constructive criticism by laying this one down loud and true on the long-gone Tascam 4-track. The bassist overlaid the guitar as well and sang this silly shit and I took care of the drums and the backing vocals, as my singing voice has been unfavorably compared to the mating call of a wildebeest getting an indian-burn on its sack. Get your lighter at the ready.....
