quotes out of context

How do you celebrate the death of the worst person on the planet?

I’ve never quite heard anything like it. Terrifying.

What kind of preternaturally hyper-trained eye does it take to find and resolve in a picture, in an instant, compositions of such visual complexity and internal harmony?

It didn’t take long for the beautiful and perfect Ed King to ejaculate for the fifth time in twelve hours, while looking like Roman public-bath statuary.

Everybody has that thing where they need to look one way, but they come out looking another way. And that’s what people observe.

    The official clip of public wailing over the death of Kim Jong Il is chilling, to be sure, as well as comical, if you are in the proper mood.

    But I do not find it incomprehensible, as many seem to do. The announcement of Stalin’s death spurred spectacular public expressions of grief, not all of them staged.

    For a people to have lived in such a tightly controlled and closed world for, what?, two or three generations, then to experience the loss of a leader who was a father and a god, be he ever so cruel — well, that could flat out rattle a person.

    Run-of-the-mill online comments on the clip betray a profound lack of imagination, but then, what else is new?

    Also, Deron, I’m really liking what you’ve been doing lately with the quotes-out-of-context posts.

    You know I get it.

    We’re gonna stick it to a whore so we don’t lose our mind.

    Pretty good-lookin’ for a Chinese.

    This may be the best thing to come out of the death so far.
