Fade in:

Int. Flat - Night 

A Young man, DASHed handsome and quite obviously marvellous, sits writing at a lap-top. 

Well hello there folks! 

So, I've now decided to start a blog of me own. As the title so aptly puts it, it's gonna be a bit of this n that.. n all sorts in between.

For a couple of days I've been ponderin what to start with n finally chose some good ol' Bill Hicks. So here's a bit from one of his routines n a video too for those who can't be arsed t read the darn thing=) 

So here goeth! Come hell or high water (actually, considerin how things are goin, it'll probly be high water.. which is quite hellish, inni.. anyways..) I'll keep this thing goin! So get comfy n enjoy the ride!=) 

"The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they've begun to question, 'Is this real, or is this just a ride?', and other people have remembered, and they've come back to us and they say 'Hey, don't worry. Don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.' and we KILL THOSE PEOPLE.

"Shut him up! We have alot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family. This just has to be real."

It's just a ride.

But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that. You ever noticed that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because ... It's just a ride.

And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride:

Take all that money we spent on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and WE CAN EXPLORE SPACE, TOGETHER, BOTH INNER AND OUTER, forever ... in peace."

I choose love. Hope you do too..

Lotsa of lovin!
