"In the old days, writers used to sit in front of a typewriter and stare out of the window. Nowadays, because of the marvels of convergent technology, the thing you type on and the window you stare out of are now the same thing." - Douglas Adams

I'm usually more interested in writing about pop culture than about what I had for lunch (THREE-PLUS YEARS LATER EDIT: LOL irony). I like to post news and reviews about current movies, video games, albums and tv shows. You can read some of them by viewing my Memories. Occasionally I might post a piece of school work (sometimes in Spanish) that I am particularly happy with. Entries regarding my personal or school life tend to be Friends-Only. The rest of my entries are the same self-absorbed navel gazing that the rest of LiveJournal is brimming with. If I post a meme, quiz or any other questions I would love to see your response posted in the comments.

Here are some more quotes that I consider important words to live by:

"But don't go looking to be Cool, it's a grail quest; those who are truly Cool never really try to be Cool, do they? Or do they? Cool impeded Nirvana on their way to greatness, yet has sustained David Bowie for nearly forty years. Cool dogged the heels of Marlon Brando until he gained sufficient weight to be considered not Cool; then he became really Cool. Cool is also a fickle muse that abandons its progenitors, leaving them with IRS arrears and drug habits. Hell, it nearly killed Dennis Hopper." - Kevin Murphy

"How can I sing about being damaged if I'm not? That's like Christina Aguilera singing in Spanish. That's it! I'll fake it!" - Bender, Futurama

"Marijuana reduces reaction time by 30%. Turns out it's not so harmless after all. If you're a girl under the age of 12, and you're high on marijuana, don't ride your bike." - Dave Chappelle, Chappelle's Show

"Remember kids, never run with scissors or other sharp objects, unless you have proper scissors handling equipment." - Dexter, Dexter's Lab

"And can we get off this Jesus kick? I know we heathens aren't easily swayed by Fox News and we tend to have an independent streak that threatens the unity of our fine nation, but even your man in the sky told you to keep your religious beliefs under your fancy Sunday hat. You win no points by putting on a show. God can read your mind. Even through the tinfoil." - The Misanthropic Bitch

"The United States is in no sense founded upon the Christian Doctrine." - George Washington

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger." - Nazi Leader Herman Goering

"The Bible is not my book, and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma." - Abraham Lincoln

"[Writing is] great fun, and I love it. But it doesn't tie any shoes." - Shirley Jackson

"Clean the stupid out of your ears and listen up!" - Samson (Michael Anderson), Carnivale

"Well, I see you're smoking pot now. I think using psychotropic drugs is a very positive example to set for our daughter." - Carolyn Burnham (Annette Bening)
"You're one to talk, you bloodless, money-grubbing freak." - Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) American Beauty

"No one, I think, is in my tree. I mean, it must be high or low." - John Lennon

"If you wish to be a writer, write." - Epictetus

"If you want to understand the conflict over gay marriage, there is a simple method. Whenever you hear or read anything whatsoever about the topic, mentally replace the words 'homosexual', 'gay', and 'lesbian' with the words 'mixed-race' or 'mixed-religion'.That's all there is to it. The same arguments were used before, the same fears of the end of civilization were spouted, the same claims of good versus evil were demanded, and the same concerns about insult to morality were loudly proclaimed. It is the same ignorance, and the same blind, bigoted hatred." - Jennifer Diane Reitz
