I do it exceptionally well.
I do it so it fells like hell.
I do it so it feels real.
- Sylvia Plath
I don't agree with Sylvia. I don't believe that the killing of soldiers
during a war is art, either, though the portrayal of it may be, i.e.
Apocalypse Now; a movie. Marlon Brando certainly was an artist. [...]36_21Aug200119:53:[log in to unmask]

shit" again and again -- it only changed them the first time.
