"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


Tart - Lauren Dane Erotica with a plot? (gasp)I will first say that I like how Lauren Dane gives her characters complications - Jules embarks on a relationship with Cal and Gideon, and they encounter disgust and confusion from some of their loved ones. I say "some", because their friends and a few of their family members don't particularly care. Also, not everything is shiny and happy. Jules has family issues, Cal has to keep dealing with his past, and Gideon is still bitter about his ex-wife. They find ways to cope, though, and I'm not just referring to sex. They actually TALK to each other.As for talking, the dialogue is a bit much. People share their feelings, which is fine, but not everyone is quite so open as to spill their guts at the drop of a hat. Ultimately it's a good read, one that is worth a look, and I'm interesting in reading more about Dane's characters.And yes, the sex is awesome.
