I share my birthday with Caravaggio, Brigitte Bardot, J.T. Walsh , Janeane Garofalo, Mira Sorvino, Naomi Watts, Dita von Teese, Gwyneth Paltrow and Hilary Duff. This must mean I'm a genius, right?

"A dog in the street would fair better with you"

In 1999 (only ten years ago) the Vatican Church declared that Hell was a state of mind and not a place. They could have asked me twenty years ago, lol. Hell is what you make it. The Vatican Church are fucking amateurs.

"What's up? We shall resist the violence
What's up? Only death is silence"


"Now will all those who want to drink all night please stand up and go to the back! The rest who would rather drink to the small hours, small talk, bed talk, till they have the affection of another, stay put. Night is there for the sole purpose of draining the bottle of youth. Which kicks and yells in its glossy mag nappies. Now at last youngsters can smash the glass vessel the schnapps drips from, the light bulb of their upbringing, the backs of their hands will be marked in discos and their faces by steel bridge railings. That's the way of the world. Right inside us. Unemployed youngsters are chary of the road into free open spaces. Warily they torment small animals they have managed to get in their power, in soundless hutches."
  Elfriede Jelinek: LUST
