On beauty and spandex

"There's more beauty in the truth, even if it's dreadful beauty. The storytellers at the city gate twist lies so that they look sweet to the lazy and the stupid and the weak, and this only strengthens their infirmities and teaches nothing, cures nothing, nor does it let the heart soar."

John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Also, so this entry isn't entirely philosophical:


Dear God.

Oy, by the way, sorry for the fuck-up there of a triple post. Blogger's been slow and stupid.

Love the Steinbeck quote. The other day I bought "Cannery Row" at Borders and should start reading it soon.
Great comic book too.
