Just wanted to jump in and agree that this is some powerful stuff, Rev, the kind that reeks of divine madness and crazy wisdom that you seem only too steeped in.

We're all Holy Men™, Risus.  Most people just haven't learned to listen to that horrible shitty part of your brain that says this awful shit, that says "Here's how people are, how do we deal with that?, while the good neighborhoods of your brain are saying "Here's how people ought to be, how do we change them?"

Regarding Gods:
Looking back on this, then lookign back on my own experience, the old testament take on what we've done and what we're going to get for it is pretty worthless.  Same as we've all got something, or multiple somehtings if we're doing it right, that we could be rightly convicted and locked away many years for, we've all got something that has HORRIBLY offended the gods.  Or the morals of all decent folks, common decency etc.  It matters that we did the heinous stuff, sure.  It also matters, for ourselves and those we want to be decent folks for if we cut the shit out.  Spectral parental disciplinarian fetishists nonwithstanding, they would have tipped their hats a lot more by now, if that was their thing. 

Also, thanks.

 
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

That was intense. And depressing. But it makes me want to make an effort. You're good at that, Roger. You're good at inspiring restlessness.

This one kinda made me cry. I don't know why, exactly, but it made me really, really sad. Like a goodbye. Like a requiem.

More like sleep all the way through Saturday and wake up Sunday morning feeling like a rat pissed in my mouth and then died there.

I do feel much better, though.

Yay! :)

You are a fucking champion writer, Roger. I knew exactly who you were talking about with each one, and it had the incredibly weird effect of being terribly sad, and yet still bringing me up from the pit of bad feelings I've been wallowing in for the past four days.

...But you're actually in a bar in Boston, and he's swilling beer across from you with that ridiculous yet glorious mustache, and you're looking at him and knowing that somewhere inside, he thinks of himself as a sellout, because he turned into a suit, but that's really not right, is it?  No, he's a fucking renaissance man, he knows business and he knows rock n roll, and he's wise enough to know that there's a difference between being good and being successful, and he's making the bills and making the universe pay on Saturday Night.  And one day he and his lady are going to have a HUGE goddamn fight, but it's going to be okay, because as mad as he is, he's going to smile a bit and tell her he loves her, instead of lashing out...


ETA:  The one about Jenne already happened, of course.

This still gives me goosebumps and brings a tear to the corner of my eye.

For my money, this is the single most powerful piece of writing ever posted here.
