Still alive. Starting to miss my LJ... A couple of quotes that stuck with me this week.
Everybody’s got something to blame because they don’t want to look inside themselves.

....What do you see when you look inside yourself?

Inside myself? I see everything. I see all. I see the good, bad, the evil… I see the whole thing.

....How much evil is there?

‘s much as you see.

....What do you see?

All of it. (Wide grin, chuckle.) Right down to peaks you haven’t touched yet. To dreams you haven’t dreamed. And worlds you haven’t conquered. The mind is endless. You put me in a dark, solitary cell and, to you, that’s the end. To me, it’s the beginning. It’s a universe in there. There’s a world in there. I’m free.

--Charles Manson

.....I’ll tell you exactly why they’re (the record companies) evil, because I told you that if you listen to our music, and you really do, with a street attitude, you’ll hear a lot of positive messages. That’s news to our record label. As far as they’re concerned, they’re just like the rest of America, they think we’re just evil scrubs, you know? They think we’re just evil bastards but they still put it out.

.....You hear what I’m saying? Like, in other words, I know there’s a good side to ICP. That’s why I can write an Insane Clown Posse album with full karma, release it and go promote it and feel good about it. ‘Cause I know that there’s positivity in our music. But our own record label, just like the rest of America, thinks that we’re just all negative, and we’re responsible for **** like Columbine and things like that, and they still put the records out. They never asked us to define these lyrics. You’d think they would If they really cared. They’d say, “Wait a minute, we’re a giant corporation. Define these lyrics before we put this out.”

--Violent J of the Insane Clown Posse
