THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

The truth shall set you free.

(via mostlysignssomeportents)

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.
Aldous Huxley, Words I Needed To Tell Myself (via acupofkeen)

"On Monday, Mike Davis, editor of the Lovecraft eZine, published a conversation between himself and Jon Padgett, founder of the website Thomas Ligotti Online, under the headline: “Did the Writer of True Detective Plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and Others?” Their answer to that question is an emphatic yes. The charges were summarized on Tuesday by the Week, which declined to take a position on the matter, and on Wednesday morning they were written up by IndieWire, which described the piece as a “strong accusation.” The story has since been picked up by several other outlets, most of which have summarized the accusations without taking sides.

"The exchange between Padgett and Davis may spur interesting questions about pastiche, homage, attribution, and influence, but a “strong accusation” of plagiarism it isn’t…"

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
