GREG NAGAN

"It's a strange time. We are all of us poor, and accursed,
and corrupt, and vile; we wrap ourselves tightly in the
mantle of our own suffering; we're hungry, we're starving,
we endure one misfortune after another, we don't expect
anything good ever to come of it, and yet we're full of
pity, sometimes, and sometimes we're just amused; we're
cruel, like children, we're quick to react, we're always
throwing ourselves off bridges or getting run over by
horses or marrying drunks or turning to prostitution,and
the so-called worst among us have the noblest of motives,
while the so-called nobles have the worst of motives, and
the intellectuals are busy spewing nonsense, and the
wealthy care for nothing but their wealth. Everyone loves
God, but everyone doubts God, because everyone fears God;
our Russian God is like the Hebrew God; sorrowful but
terrible. Everyone is a shyster. Everyone drinks.
Everyone is bawdy. Everyone accepts things as they are,
but no one can stand it even a moment longer. And we've
all got these crazy Russian names."
-Greg Nagan. The genius that is Greg Nagan trying to be
Dostoyevsky.

"When he was odne thinking about Russia and how tragically
mixed up she was, he wandered around the city some more,
wondering what he would have done if he were napolean"

"yes, yes, it's all so terrible, so honest, so Russian, so
completely irrelevant"

let's have some more greg nagan.

Orwell:
"War is peace
freedom is slavery
ignorance is strength
but diamonds are a girls best friend"

The 5 min history of western civ:
"It was a terrible,bloody, drunken, and confusing period,
and therefore caused the modern age"


Wasn't that just FUN?

Song of the day:

(please dun mind the typos)

India Arie
Video


Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't
Depend on how the wed blows I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I Learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Aria

When I look in the mirror the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
And I know our creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes I'm lovin' what I see

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I Learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Aria

Am I less of a lady If I don't wear panty hoes?
My momma says a Lady ain't what she wears but, what she
knows
But, I've drawn a conclusion, it's all and illusion
confusions the name of the game
A misconception, a vast deception
Something's gotta change
Don't be offended this is all my opinion
ain't nothing that I'm sayin law
This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was
sent here to share wit ya'll
So get in where you fit in go on and shine
Free your mind, nows the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go head and love yourself
Cuz everything's gonna be all right

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I Learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Aria

Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks
I don't need that to have a good time
Keep your expensive car and your Caviar
All I need is my guitar
Keep your krystyle and your pistol
I'd rather have a pretty piece of Crystal
Don't need your silicone I prefer my own
What God gave me is just fine

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I Learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Arie
