If I am Death is not; if death is, I am not - Epicurus
This crossed my path.


You’re Never Going To Have a Legacy, So Give up Trying

Acknowledging the death of our lives and legacy can help us live better.

Even memories of us pass away.

The worst thing about dying is leaving behind tons of uneaten ice cream.

For anyone still in the dark about Bradley Manning.

Bradley Manning's still a Good ol' Girl.

"There's nothing to mourn about death any more than there is to mourn about the growing of a flower. What is terrible is not death but the lives people live or don't live up until their death. They don't honor their own lives, they piss on their lives. They shit them away. Dumb fuckers. They concentrate too much on fucking, movies, money, family, fucking. Their minds are full of cotton. They swallow God without thinking, they swallow country without thinking. Soon they forget how to think, they let others think for them. Their brains are stuffed with cotton. They look ugly, they talk ugly, they walk ugly. Play them the great music of the centuries and they can't hear it. Most people's deaths are a sham. There's nothing left to die."

—From The Captain Is Out to Lunch and the Sailors Have Taken Over the Ship, by Charles Bukowski, 1998

Knew you'd 'love' it Dallas...  Pretty fucking freaky, I love it too.

Sydni, I've seen those pics before, but I've never seen this video. That is so gruesome.

Gruesome body parts greet customers of a bakery in Ratchaburi, Thailand. Artist and baker Kittiwat Unarrom has sculpted life-like heads, feet and hands from dough in the bakery's kitchen and exhibits them in glass cabinets in the shop. He says his edible art lures one hundred visitors a day.

Death has been my constant companion since my teens and I think I'm pretty old now! Life and death appear to be intertwined to me... often they fight one another but  generally the will to survive, the will to live is stronger. So if we are alive I tend to adopt as much as possible a hedonistic view....
