Forget Random Internet Quotes Thursday. I'll just post whenever I have reasonable amount saved up.
"Trash" and "fluff" are not insults. "Overrated" is.
Criticism is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It can call attention to an unhealthy state of things.
It is a mistake to say that freedom is a gift bestowed by a rifle.

I have a 200 game Nintendo collection. By Nintendo, I mean Nintendo Entertainment System. From the 1980’s. It’s pretty sad, but there really is nothing better than drinking highballs while playing Ducktales on an old, shitty television.

People are passionate about a lot of stupid things. It's not a great mantra. Meaning, I think, comes from doing a full accounting of your limitations and assets, your passions and your weaknesses, your belief system and your fears, and then rubbing up against the things that cause you to panic, like an allergy skin scratch test, and find out what your reactions are. Once you figure out how you can contribute to the greater good, once you're able even to define that, you take that information and pour yourself into one direction. Regardless of discomfort or regrets or what-ifs. (And then doing that over and over again, until death.) That does not fit on a T-shirt. That to me is more important than bliss, which would really just lead me back into bed, maybe with a bowl of corn flakes...
...no one is going to drop a meaningful life into your lap. You fight for it over and over again.
