I Think Dre Dog (Andre Nickatina) Said It Best.

(And I am totally dating myself here with this one, I realize…)

In his old school song called “Gangster Cry”, when he says:

“Fuck around and be on a respirator.”

or from “Smoke Dope And Rap” (just as ancient), when he says:

I did bring the weed, but I left it in the Cutty;

did you really think I would smoke my dank with you, Dummy?

or,

“Ain’t nothin’ like a blunt for the funk in your teeth…”

I Think “Quick” Said It Best.

In the movie Harlem Nights, when Eddie Murphy’s character “Quick” says to Vera (Della Reese):

“You’ll be the nine-toe-havenest, limpinest bitch in Harlem if you don’t put that knife away Vera!”

 

Lawrence Said it Best When He Said:

In the movie Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Steve Martin and Michael Cain), when Lawrence asks Freddy:

“Ruprecht….? Do you want the genital cuff?”

 

Injustice and Anxiety.

Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.

— Arthur Somers Roche

Injustice alone can shake down the pillars of the skies, and restore the reign of Chaos and Night.

— Horace Mann

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

— Abraham Lincoln

“The Dude” Said it Best When He Said:

I still think the Dude (from the classic film The Big Lebowski) said it best when he said:

Yeah, well, you know…that’s just like, you’re opinion, man.”

best comeback of all time

I Think Walter Sobchak Said it Best.

In the Big Lebowski, when he said,

“Is this your homework, Larry?”

Omar Little Said it Best When He Said:

I think Omar Little (the notorious stick-up man from the TV series The Wire) said it best when he said,

“Boy, you got me confused with someone who repeats himself…”

all in the game yo

Raylan Said it Best When He Said:

I think Raylan Givens from the Justified TV series said it best when he said:

“You need a cleanup on isle whatever…”

tim and raylan

LaDonna Said it Best When She Said:

I think Miss LaDonna (from the TV series “Treme”) said it best when she said,

“Bitch! I’m past upset…I’m all the way to Lost My Fucking Mind!”choke a bitchLOVE HER!

“Doc” Holliday.

That moment when someone insists on opening his or her mouth and commenting on my own alcohol intake level…

“C’mon now…you’re so drunk, Doc, you’re probably seein’ two of me…”

To which, I think Doc Holliday replied best, when he said:

“I’ve got two guns…one for each of you.”

Groot.

I think Groot said it best when he said:

we are groot

“We are Groot.”

…wow, it gets me every time…total tear-jerk, damn.

Neck-tie.

I think Rita Sue said it best when she said (in response to being threatened with “Well, maybe I should just come over – pay your whore ass a visit“):

rita sue 1…couldn’t have said it better myself.

What’s Your Preference?

joanie and jane

Joanie asks Jane,

“What’s your preference?”

in regard to a drink;to which Jane replies,

“Oh…somethin’ that ain’t been swallowed before…”

One of my favorite quotes of all time…spoken by an all-time favorite (and chillingly historically accurate) character from the old Deadwood Series.

A Sorta Fairytale.

“And I rode alongside,

and I rode alongside of him,

yeah, I rode alongside…

until you lost me there in the open road…

And I rode alongside,

’til the honey spread too too thin –

for me to break your bread…

for me to take your word…

I had to steal it.”

Postcards from Freedom #5 – Mommy’s Little Maximus.

He'll NEVER turn out like YOU.

He’ll NEVER turn out like YOU.

This postcard is one of a two part series – Persia will be sending her own out soon. The importance behind this particular postcard should be obvious – Persia has ensured her son Max’s freedom as well as her own. He will never grow up to be like his scary father. Much love from Freedom!!!

Sold Out.

How much did my heart end up bidding out for?

That day when you auctioned the final valve out;

How many times did I have to beg you to stop?

Before you even realized what I was begging about.

And, when the snow fell in around your barricaded world ;

and no one else cared to come dig for your face…

that final shot – the one that stole your last sane thought –

must’ve come to you just as I set fire to my own face.

I still find your child-like, crumpled pieces of note;

an ocean of lies with each word that you wrote;

I still scream teardrop stains that streak down both cheeks;

Alone and afraid to swim through the bullshit you speak.

The doctor says the fragments of your blade will soon be gone;

my back will heal up and he’ll sew my wings back on…

so that I can take flight just one very last time –

in order to die with my grip on what’s mine.

the Orphan

Despite the “unapproachability” that I so openly tease the Orphan about on a regular basis, he continues to be socially accosted by some of the most pond-scummiest of creatures imaginable so far, in his evolutionary adventures as a born-again Red Triangle Surfer God.

 

  • The Orphan is a strange combination of “Foreign” = the Orphan interacts socially in a different manner than that which Americans (especially West Coast Surfer Boys/OGSC’s) are at all prepared for, much less have any clue how to respond to, in most cases.
  • It’s actually pretty fuckin’ funny to watch from a safe distance most of the time…shame on me.
  • The Orphan does Him, and tends not to worry about what anyone is doing until whatever they’re doing starts to impede on his own gig = he’s 9 times out of 10 NOT the one to initiate conversation with a stranger (I imagine he was this way always, even in his most familiar of environments). He keeps to himself unless a nerve gets pinched.
  • The Orphan is, just like Yours Truly, allergic to BULLSHIT = don’t talk in front of him if you’re full of shit because he will sniff you out in an nano-second and expose you until you disappear.

 

A BELOVEDLY TRUE STORY:

He is sitting out past the breakers in the solitude of a favorite beach break of his, enjoying the peace and quiet away from the trendy tourist beaches that have become UN-FUN due to so many idiot vacationers. Suddenly, he is startled by a raspy voice behind him somewhere close by and he whips his head around to see a washed-up, rode hard, dirty Surf Bum paddling up to his position in the lineup.

Sigh…why?…just why?

His eye rolling doesn’t deter the man from sliding in next to him as he waits for a good ride and begins to talk to the Orphan openly about his problems.

“I feel like shit, Man…haven’t had a drink in over 48 hours…trying to quit, ya know?…

The Orphan just stares straight ahead but gives a nod of acknowledgment because he is, unfortunately for him at this very moment in the story, a Human Being.

“Just gotta stop drinking, Man…” no waves to ride in come, so the Orphan listens on, somehow intrigued by the train wreck of a surfer.

The older guy is obviously distraught and in a state of disarray as he tells the Orphan about a “fight” with his “Ol’ Lady” a few nights prior, and having had to leave the house afterward so as not to be arrested when the police arrived.

“It’s all because women ya know?…they are so fragile …you can’t hit ‘em like you could, a man, ya know…? …so much frailer, so easy to really fuck up in fight…so I gotta stop that drinkin’, Man…”

After several minutes of collecting enough verbal information that the Orphan felt certain of his quickly forming opinion regarding a somewhat “touchy” subject, he responded to this miserably clueless, self-admitted woman beater in the way that ONLY the Orphan could.

He turned and made intentionally piercing eye-contact with the man on the board just 2 feet away from him and simply stated:

“Hey…Dude…. I mean, I think it has certainly occurred to you by now that maybe…..you don’t need to stop fighting with your lady because “she is fragile and frail”…”, his fingers are up to do the accompanying gesture of quotation marks, “maybe it’s just because you’re an alcoholic idiot who can’t control himself when he’s drunk – which sounds like it’s ALWAYS….”

The Orphans posture is straight and self-assured as he sits like statue waiting for a response of any kind that takes a while to come, surprisingly.

“Well…ya got a point there, don’t you Kid?”

THE END.

If…

backstabbedIf you think you aren’t out to get anyone, think again.

If you think a few written words will get you right on in;

Since you obviously can’t recognize who or what I am –

go ahead and take your place with all the rest of them.

If you still have heads to step on while climbing your way passed;

if it turns out you don’t belong here, and you stand in stark contrast;

if your desperate needs will lead you to another, more pressing task;

if you’re willing to the cut the throat of your own future and your past.

If You’re Going Through Hell…

If You're Gong Through Hell...

Keep Going.
