Bill Hicks – we’re the imagination of ourselves

bill hicks

“Wouldn't you like to see a positive LSD story on the news? To base your decision on information rather than scare tactics and superstition? Perhaps? Wouldn't that be interesting? Just for once? 'Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration – that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather.'”

- Bill Hicks


Doug Stanhope on the key to life

“The key to a good life: Excess in Moderation. They'll tell you that moderation is the key to life but that's bullshit. Excess in moderation. Don't drink a few beers everyday after work. Wait 'til the end of the month and drink all the beers at once. Get completely soused. Don't get a $20 crackwhore on a whim. Save up and then get the $1,500 Heidi Fleiss high class call girl on new years eve and wake up with a damn good story. Don't eat the stem of the mushroom and see a few colors. Eat the whole bag and see god. Just don't do it everyday. If you practice in moderation you'll never get the full effect. And don't ever learn from other peoples mistakes. That's the worst advice you could get. Cause other people might have fucked it up, and you could be the one guy who can do it right, and be a hero for all of us. And finally, fuck someone uglier than you. Every now and then. Even if they don't deserve it, because that makes people happy. It stays with you for a lifetime.”

- Doug Stanhope
