Pic of the Day: “The battle between Heaven and Hell has waged eternal, their armies fueled by souls harvested on Earth. The devil, Malebolgia, has sent a lieutenant to Earth to recruit men who will turn the world into a place of death in exchange for wealth and power, a place that will provide enough souls to complete his army and allow Armageddon to begin. All the Dark Lord needs now is a great soldier, someone who can lead his hordes to the gates of Heaven and burn them down.” (25th Anniversary)

There’s a ball of fire, it’s 1200 miles in diameter heading straight for Earth, and we have no idea how to stop it. That’s the problem.” “How long do we have?” “If its speed remains constant, in an hour and fifty-seven minutes.” “I’ll call you back in two hours.” (25th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “We’ll drive. Keep driving. Head out to the middle of nowhere, take that road as far as it takes us. You’ve never been west of Philly, have ya? This is a beautiful country, Monty, it’s beautiful out there, like a different world. Mountains, hills, cows, farms, and white churches. I drove out west with your mother one time, before you was born. Brooklyn to the Pacific in three days. Just enough money for gas, sandwiches, and coffee, but we made it. Every man, woman, and child alive should see the desert one time before they die. Nothin’ at all for miles around. Nothin’ but sand and rocks and cactus and blue sky. Not a soul in sight. No sirens. No car alarms. Nobody honkin’ atcha. No madmen cursin’ or pissin’ in the streets. You find the silence out there, you find the peace. You can find God. So we drive west, keep driving till we find a nice little town. These towns out in the desert, you know why they got there? People wanted to get way from somewhere else. The desert’s for startin’ over. Find a bar and I’ll buy us drinks. I haven’t had a drink in two years, but I’ll have one with you, one last whisky with my boy. Take our time with it, taste the barley, let it linger. And then I’ll go. I’ll tell you don’t ever write me, don’t ever visit, I’ll tell you I believe in God’s kingdom and I’ll see you and your mother again, but not in this lifetime. You’ll get a job somewhere, a job that pays cash, a boss who doesn’t ask questions, and you make a new life and you never come back. Monty, people like you, it’s a gift, you’ll make friends wherever you go. You’re going to work hard, you’re going to keep your head down and your mouth shut. You’re going to make yourself a new home out there. You’re a New Yorker, that won’t ever change. You got New York in your bones. Spend the rest of your life out west but you’re still a New Yorker. You’ll miss your friends, you’ll miss your dog, but you’re strong. You got your mother’s backbone in you, you’re strong like she was. You find the right people, and you get yourself papers, a driver’s license. You forget your old life, you can’t come back, you can’t call, you can’t write. You never look back. You make a new life for yourself and you live it, you hear me? You live your live the way it should have been. But maybe, this is dangerous, but maybe after a few years you send word to Naturelle. You get yourself a new family and you raise them right, you hear me? Give them a good life, Monty. Give them what they need. You have a son, maybe you name him James, it’s a good strong name, and maybe one day years from now years after I’m dead and gone reunited with your dear ma, you gather your whole family around and tell them the truth, who you are, where you come from, you tell them the whole story. Then you ask them if they know how lucky there are to be there. It all came so close to never happening. This life came so close to never happening.” (20th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Now that I have lived / A lifetime’s worth of days / Finally I see / The folly of my ways / So listen when I sing of / The temptations of this world / Fancy cars and needles / Whisky, flesh and pearls / And then in the end / It’s family and friends / Loving yourself / But not only yourself / It’s about the good walk / And the hard walk / And the young girls you’ve made cry / It’s about make a little music everyday ’til you die / It’s a beautiful ride.” ♫ (15th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “He was listed in the city directory as Thomas Howard. And he went everywhere unrecognized and lunched with Kansas City shopkeepers and merchants, calling himself a cattleman or a commodities investor, someone rich and leisured who had the common touch. He had two incompletely healed bullet holes in his chest and another in his thigh. He was missing the nub of his left middle finger and was cautious, lest that mutilation be seen. He also had a condition that was referred to as ‘granulated eyelids’ and it caused him to blink more than usual as if he found creation slightly more than he could accept. Rooms seemed hotter when he was in them. Rains fell straighter. Clocks slowed. Sounds were amplified. He considered himself a Southern loyalist and guerrilla in a Civil War that never ended. He regretted neither his robberies, nor the seventeen murders that he laid claim to. He had seen another summer under in Kansas City, Missouri and on September 5th in the year 1881, he was 34 years old.” (15th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “I have often dreamed of a far off place / Where a hero’s welcome would be waiting for me / Where the crowds would cheer, when they see my face / And a voice keeps saying this is where I’m meant to be / I’ll be there someday, I can go the distance / I will find my way if I can be strong / I know every mile would be worth my while / When I go the distance, I’ll be right where I belong.” ♫ (25th Anniversary)
