“Do you think that your 16 year old daughter hasn’t masturbated already? Like, do you really think there’s anything in that scene that this chick hasn’t already tried when the lights go out at night, or in the bathroom, or in the tub, or with the shower head or something like that? I’m telling you, man, I’m not teaching this broad anything new. If I were to create a rating system, I wouldn’t even put murder right at the top of the chief offenses. I would put rape right at the top, and assault against women. Because it’s so insanely overused and insulting how much it’s overused in movies as a plot device, a woman in peril. That, to me, is offensive, yet that shit skates.” —Kevin Smith (director) on the ridiculousness of movies about sex receiving NC-17 ratings while extremely violent movies get by with R ratings.
“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.” —Hemingway
“Real games aren’t played with a piece of plastic attached to your TV, they’re played with a sheet of paper and a d20.” — Níall MacGabhann
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered,
I have fought my way here
to the castle beyond the Goblin City, to take back the child you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me.
“There is a place in the heart that will never be filled; a space. And even during the best moments, and the greatest times, we will know it.” —Charles Bukowski
