new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

think god out of existence

no one's going to help you bubby.
from the movie bad boy bubby

'you see, no one's going to help you bubby, because there isn't anybody out there to do it. no one. we're all just complicated arrangements of atoms and subatomic particles - we don't live. but our atoms do move about in such a way as to give us identity and consciousness. we don't die; our atoms just rearrange themselves. there is no god. there can be no god; it's ridiculous to think in terms of a superior being. an inferior being, maybe, because we, we who don't even exist, we arrange our lives with more order and harmony than god ever arranged the earth. we measure; we plot; we create wonderful new things. we are the architects of our own existence. what a lunatic concept to bow down before a god who slaughters millions of innocent children, slowly and agonizingly starves them to death, beats them, tortures them, rejects them. what folly to even think that we should not insult such a god, damn him, think him out of existence. it is our duty to think god out of existence. it is our duty to insult him. fuck you, god! strike me down if you dare, you tyrant, you non-existent fraud! it is the duty of all human beings to think god out of existence. then we have a future. because then - and only then - do we take full responsibility for who we are. and that's what you must do, bubby: think god out of existence; take responsibility for who you are.'
