"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

Ella Minnow Pea: A Novel in Letters

Ella Minnow Pea: A Novel in Letters - This book is GENIUS. It's an epistolary novel, meaning it's written as a series of letters. It's set in Nollop, a town that literally worships Nevin Nollop, who coined the panagram sentence "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". Nollop has a statue with the sentence inscribed on it, but one day the letter Z falls off the structure. The town votes to abolish the letter Z, making any use of it a crime. One by one, each letter falls, making it more difficult to write and speak. This book is fun AND disturbing. How many books can you say that about?!
