"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

[SIC] - Davis Schneiderman Disclaimer: An ARC was provided for an honest review, and I am thankful for the opportunity.I don't know if I can rate this one.It's actually not meant to be read. That must sound strange, but this appropriation of public domain works along with some odd photographs is more of a comment on works in the public domain and art/creativity in general. The works are diverse - code for a virus, Hamlet, chain letters, ballads...they've all got that connection. They're out there for grabs. Take what you want. Pass it on. It belongs to all of us.While I have nothing against works like fanfiction and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies", I think plagiarism, or outright theft of someone else's work and claiming it for yourself, is deplorable. It's cowardly and pathetic, and there is no excuse for it.The thing is, those who truly plagiarize wouldn't come up with something like this, a statement of what works belong to everyone and no one. They would merely steal, and not really say anything. They have nothing to say, so they take someone else's words.[sic]'s photography didn't resonate with me, and it's hard to remember that it's not meant to be read as prose. Still, it's a fascinating work. At the end of the day, though, I didn't really get it, so I don't think I can fairly rate this one. Take a look and decide for yourself.
