100th Post Spectacular!

Put these two on while we ride through this post together:

Chicago - 25 or 6 to 4


So, we've reached our first 100 posts. The encyclopedia is 0.1% complete! Thankyou to everyone who's visited, and had a look around up to this point. I hope you all come back again at some point to see what we've scraped off of the pop culture floor. It's been alot of fun.

Don't be afraid to just like things. Just enjoy everything for what it is. There's a whole fucking world of awesome stuff out there.

Here's the greatest quote ever... I never have and never will be a openly political person... or even someone who would give credit to my own opinions. But Bill Hicks is the man for the job:

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. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly colored, and it's very loud, and it's fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, "Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, "Hey, don't worry; don't be afraid, ever. Because this is just a ride."

We kill those people. "Shut him up! I've got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok? But it doesn't matter, because it's just a ride. And we can change it any time we want.

It's only a choice. No effort, not work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, 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 spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.
