"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

Gone, Gone, Gone

Gone, Gone, Gone - Hannah Moskowitz Hannah Moskowitz is one of those writers that sends other writers (e.g., schmucks like me) running back to the drawing board. She pulls you right into the characters's heads and has you deeply invested in their stories from the beginning. This book is written from two points of view, Craig's and Lio's. Their voices aren't very different, and normally this annoys the hell out of me, but in this case it lets the reader see that these boys are more similar than they realize.I love how this story moves forward and adds layers without becoming obtuse, and of course I love the diversity in this book. We don't have enough GLBT and/or non-Caucasian characters in YA.I bought this book during my honeymoon but I think I might donate it to my library so that other people can enjoy it. Books like these need to be shared.
