"I want to perform an unnatural act."

- Lenny Bruce



"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks



"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin



"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

Something Like Summer

Something Like Summer  - Jay Bell There are people out there who try to deconstruct jokes to see what makes them funny, and comedians often argue that it's missing the point. I agree with them, but I've done the same thing with this book; I've reread it time and time again trying to see what it is that makes it work so damn well.It takes a little while for the plot to get going, and yes, there were times when I disliked how something/someone was described, but oh god, the story.Here's what a lot of stories are missing: heart. You can go on and on about love interests, physical descriptions, etc., but if your story has no heart, I'm not going to care. Something Like Summer has so much heart, and it will probably break yours, but it is worth it, my friends, it is worth it.
