birthday balls

That my friends is the cover of Neil Young’s Mirrorball. With some band called pearl jam or something. It's something i've been looking for for years. And it’s also by far the best birthday gift I’ve received this year. and that too today! Thanks magane. Every birthday, death comes closer by a year. This kind of stuff makes one forget it for a while.

absurdity...thy name is life

a scene from the movie "Play It Again, Sam"
Woody Allen (looking at painting): That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?
Girl in Museum: Yes it is.
WA: What does it say to you?
GiM: It restates the negativeness of the universe, the hideous lonely emptiness of existence, nothingness, the predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity, like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void, with nothing but waste, horror, and degradation, forming a useless bleak straightjacket in a black absurd cosmos.
WA: What are you doing Saturday night?
GiM: Committing suicide.
Woody Allen: What about Friday night?
Girl in museum: [leaves silently]
