Tribute To The Best Blog In The World

Tuesday, September 05, 2006


All right crew, I think this blog should have a strict, NEVER BE SERIOUS policy but i was looking through vonnegut quotes today, and every day I find a new one that makes me want to celebrate every national holiday simultaneously, they're that great. So put on your Leprachaun suit, your Casmir Polaski hat, and Native American headdress, and let's celebrate this incredible SOB. I want to try and do one Vonnegut quote a day, that will last for, least today. Here's one from God Bless You Mr Rosewater, the main character is addressing a group of science fiction writers.

"I love you sons of bitches. You’re all I read any more. You're the only ones who’ll talk all about the really terrific changes going on, the only ones crazy enough to know that life is a space voyage, and not a short one, either, but one that’ll last for billions of years. You’re the only ones with guts enough to really care about the future, who really notice what machines do to us, what wars do to us, what cities do to us, what big, simple ideas do to us, what tremendous misunderstanding, mistakes, accidents, catastrophes do to us. You're the only ones zany enough to agonize over time and distance without limit, over mysteries that will never die, over the fact that we are right now determining whether the space voyage for the next billion years or so is going to be Heaven or Hell."
