yesterday a friend told me that apathy wasn't a desirable world view. perhaps an absurdist view is more palatable and humorous.

here' a little quote from one the English language's best absurdist writers Mr. Vonnegut -"Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before... He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way."

so in the spirit of narcissism and egocentric obsession I wish you all a grand day. may you smell the dog shit on the sidewalk and enjoy the gratuitous violence on TV. may you feel compelled to participate in compulsory consumption during this joyless holiday season and may you get all the things you didn't want or need. for life as we've made it is absurd and delirious and for that we should be shameful.

now where is the next swell?
