I believe in restless hunger
I believe in private thunder
I believe in inspiration
I believe in slow creation
I believe in lips on ears
I believe in being wrong
I believe in contradiction
I believe in living smitten
I believe our book is written
by our company of friends

-Danny Schmidt




CYNIC, n.
A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. Hence the custom among the Scythians of plucking out a cynic's eyes to improve his vision.

The Devil's Dictionary, Ambrose Pierce






This journal is friends-locked, and contains a heady (or simply annoying) mixture of frivolity, foul language, felonious behavior and careless misdemeanors. And shoes—lots of shoes.


I think everyone should have a laugh at least once a day. Toward this end, I make fun of myself constantly.




One fruitloop to rule them all, one fruitloop to find them,
One fruitloop to bring them all and in the dorkness bind them.


I am The Yellow Fruit Loop.
