The ice queen zaps you from her fortress
now you are a frozen block of ice
My day has been spent in the dryer. Tumbling around in the hot air, I've been sorting through the articles of my life. All my clothes are unclean. The unbearable humidity! It is an unhappy grey cloud. Mailbag!

Is my life predetermined or is there such a thing as free will?
luv the site!
No, you are doomed to make the same mistakes. Your solipsistic suspicions are correct; and once your life ends, things will reset and you will emerge from your mother's womb having forgotten everything.
This site is sweeter than the royal jelly of the queen bee! I was wondering, does media, in its relentless attempt to tug at all of my emotions and most intimate feelings, flatten my heart to a numbing drone, or ultimately make my experience richer with its strange, yet unsettling variation?

You are now just a piece of corporate trash, a plastic bag blown across the grocery store parking lot, pushed by winds of petty fancy. Once you were a mighty warrior who breathed fresh strong air, drank straight from streams, and felt the raw pangs of love and pain undiluted by the insecurities of the chiselers trying to sell you a hot dog, a soda, and a lipstick colored car.
Though the cathartic exercise of drama and art fills a yawning gap in our existence with its own inconsistencies, it wobbles between manipulation and escape. Not all tunnels lead out! As Nietzsche says, "Will the all-encompassing net of art be woven ever more tightly and delicately? Or will it be torn to shreds by the restless and barbaric activities of our day?" We know now this is a naive division. You don't have to wear sunglasses all the time!
Look, we, ALILBTDII, are pressing a gold coin into your hot hand. Don't worry! Don't spend it, but put it in a pocket where you know it will be safe!

Mitch, my man,
In our forums apparently!
I am kidding. Do not come to my house and arrest me. Jesus Christ, prison would be unbearable. Are you allowed plants in there?
You are not allowed plants. Often our inmates weep. There are long questioning sessions. If you wish, you may turn up the radio very loud if you want to have a private conversation in your home which is bugged.
Keep a clean nose, Dumptruck!
That's all from the mailbag this week, kids!
