"I want to perform an unnatural act."

"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

"All the World's a Grave", or Shakespeare Revisited

All the World's a Grave: A New Play by William Shakespeare - John  Reed, William Shakespeare

John Reed has taken lines from various Shakespeare plays and created an entirely new tragedy. He sums it up better than I ever could:

 

Hamlet goes to war for Juliet, the daughter of King Lear. Having captured his bride - by unnecessary bloodshed - Prince Hamlet returns home to find that his mother has murdered his father and married Macbeth. Hamlet, wounded and reeling, is sought out by the ghost of his murdered father, and commanded to seek revenge. Iago, opportunistic, further inflames the enraged prince, persuading him that Juliet is having an affair with Romeo; the prince goes mad with jealousy.

 

Need I say more? All I can add is that I highly recommend this to any fan of Shakespeare.
