Too many freaks, not enough side shows.

I miss Spider Jerusalem…Warren Ellis’s masterwork was short lived and short tempered. Every issue was worth the price of admission. I secretly wish that Transmetropolitan never gets reanimated as a big screen car crash of a movie. Hollycrapwood should leave it’s grubby fingers off something perfect. 60 issues – all on fire.

• “They say journalism is the art of controlling your environment, but that’s all wrong. I can’t control anything with this typewriter. All this is, is a gun.”
• “the only real tools we have are our eyes and our heads. It’s not the act of seeing with our own eyes alone; it’s correctly comprehending what we see.”
• “You people don’t know what the truth is! It’s there, just under their bullshit, but you never look! That’s what I hate most about this fucking city — lies are news and the truth is obsolete!”
• “The IRS has agreed that I can write my professional medication off as journalist’s equipment.”

But mostly I miss Hunter Thompson – We need a man of his calibre (pun intended) to combat the forces of evil that are gathering around us. it’s looming in the shadows. The fog of war hangs over our day lives like battlefield smoke in a Matthew Brady photo. HST would have taken Dubya and his crew on at every turn, face to face no holds barred frothing at the mouth and screaming at the top of his lungs. The insidiouis evil star chamber and their new world order had to wait to rear it’s ugly diamond back head, it had to wait until the man was a mere shadow himself, and even then it settled back to let nature undo him one organ at at time, laid in wait until he left the stage. Only now – they are lining up their little tin soldiers, packing the courts, alphabet soup agency heads, they have taken a straight razor to the hamstrings of the constitution. Anyone and everyone who gets in their way is beaten into submission like a east european street walker. They have no shame and take no prisoners. The warlords beating their phalluses behind their desks, here or in the middle east. no difference, poor misled youths fight their wars, women have no rights regarding their own bodies. I hate it here.

• “America… just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.”
• “Not even the foulest atrocities of Adolf Hitler ever shocked me so badly as these [Abu Ghraib] photographs did.”

• “Four more years of George Bush will be like four more years of syphilis.”
• “It was the most brutal seizure of power since Hitler burned the Reichstag in 1933 and declared himself the new boss of Germany. Karl Rove is no stranger to Nazi strategy, if only because it worked for a while, and it was sure fun for Hitler.”
