A reading from 'Darnley', by Edward Bulwer-Lytton.

Corey Haim December 23, 1971 - March 10, 2010: R.I.P.

He liked to listen to music on his headphones, and loved his SEGA. His best friend was Corey Feldman, and "Lucas" was a great film. He loved his family, and was always heartbroken over some girl. His favorite number was 22, and he loved all kinds of pizza, and junk food. He was super-nice to every single one of his fans, and he was always a professional on the set... off the set was another story altogether. I loved him like a brother, and the world will be emptier without him.

A strange memory from Catholic School.

reBlog from Eric Hellman: Go To Hellman

I found this fascinating quote today:



From what we've been able to piece together, the book "lending" takes place in "libraries". On entering one of these dens, patrons may view a dazzling array of books, periodicals, even CDs and DVDs, all available to anyone willing to disclose valuable personal information in exchange for a "card". But there is an ominous silence pervading these ersatz sanctuaries, enforced by the stern demeanor of staff and the glares of other patrons. Although there's no admission charge and it doesn't cost anything to borrow a book, there's always the threat of an onerous overdue bill for the hapless borrower who forgets to continue the cycle of not paying for copyrighted material.Eric Hellman, Go To Hellman, Jan 2010
