today young men on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one conciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we're the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather.

Great quotes Cean. Bill Hicks is/was the best comedian ever, mixing humor with political and social issues. Tool have done a great job honouring him on AEnema

tool is one of my favorite bands, not just because of their music but their way of looking at things and their outlook on life in general. they speak plain out and say whatever they want whenever they want to. they speak their minds without thinking twice and don't care who hates them or likes them, i admire that about them. though one thing i don't exactly understand are the message's to harry manback...

i must also add that bill hicks is one of the funniest people out there. it's true the way he takes political issues and comedy and put them together to subliminally sort of get a message across... not only that but to just make fun... like every comedian =\
