so I wasn't expecting that even though I should have.
ya know. I only know about them, but I can't remember ever watching them.

But on another note I think I shall continue maintaining that the universe is absurd. its punchline is that there is no punchline.

Awesome! Yeah, oddly heartening and I fully support getting this into meatspace. I'll do my bit to spread it around.

Again, I don't think this is exactly nihilism so much as existential absurdity.

One or the other.  Doesn't really matter.

And Garbo, I'll be prepping the whole series into a single .doc format and asking someone to PDF it.

I don't know the difference between Nihilism and existential absurdity.

All I know are the following facts:

1.  Your life is your own, if you have the guts to seize it.

2.  There's no plan.

3.  Don't just eat that cheeseburger, eat the hell out of it, and

4.  Relax.  Shit just isn't that important.

you could be right, I never went too deep into philosophy. Nihilism for me = "there is no meaning of life" and that's as much as I could be arsed learning. I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I'm stumped how a lot (most?) people who arrive at this conclusion seem to get pissed off about it. If my existence turns out to have one iota of purpose I'll be as pissed off as a motherfucker. Would kinda turns a holiday into a job.

If you're not looking for anything fancy, I can PDF it for you and send it back for approval. This week is gonna be pretty quiet, thank god, and I'll have time.

My favorite part of this was that a piece you wrote years ago just clicked for me.  Awesome.

I think Payne actually wrote that, if it's the bit about being on the wrong side of the police line.

Ah.  I knew it was one of the letters from that fall.  I wrote something in response and I couldn't figure out why I couldn't make it jive until just now.
