Contradiction in Terms
You say to-may-toe; I say toh-mah-tah. Deal with it.

Today is nothing special, apparently.

I think this is one of the coolest things anyone has ever said:
"To conquer death, you only have to die.
You only have to die."

--Tim Rice, Jesus Christ, Superstar

Which seems fairly morbid at first glance, but to me, the point the esteemed Mr. Rice (so respected because he can actually use the word 'coruscate' in a song) is trying to make is that everybody has a choice: you can spend your life trying not to die; or you can face your inevitable death, having tried your best to live.

At least, that's what it means to me. But it's fuckin' poetry, man; and good poetry means different things to different people.

And you can quote me on that one.

This site is prettiest if you set your monitor resolution to 1024 by 768... but I won't hold it against you if you don't. Honest.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
