My girlfriend is so pretty that I can't get over it. Every week I celebrate the alignments of her features by parading a giant photograph of her lovely face around the town centre, I've written the words 'pretty face' on the picture's border, and drawn and arrow to direct people's attention towards it. It's not bragging, because it's her that's the pretty one, not me. I'm going to parade every week for as long as she lets me be her boyfriend, and probably even longer. Nothing's going to put me off, not even the shouts of 'had her' or 'been there'.

They did it. A faithfull and satisfying animated adaptation of "All Star Superman", the best Superman book ever. I was glad that the funniest part of the book, Clark interviewing Lex in jail and making him believe he was saving him from trouble when it's really the other way around, made it in. The animation, the cast and the score are all so magnificent I wish they had released this in theatres.
+ Tyra: "I was afraid......" I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure, but now I find I can't stop wanting. I want to surprise myself. I wanna loose and get over it. I wanna define myself instead of having others define me. I wanna win and have people be happy for me. I wanna be the best person I can be. I wanna not be afraid of the unknown. Its not that I think that I'm going to get all these things, I just want the possibility of getting them. The possibility that things are gonna change.
I must have been mute, or whatever I said won from silence nothing
Nabokov’s Blues by William Matthews
Live in your inner self alone within your soul a world has grown, the magic of veiled thoughts that might be blinded by the outer light, drowned in the noise of day, unheard... take in their song and speak no word.
