Goodbye, I say, goodbye, as I disappear little by little into the middle of the middle of my own spectacular now.

You’ve probably heard the expression—All good things must come to an end. Well, this stage in the life of the buzz never heard anything close to that. This stage says, “I will never end. I am indestructible. I will last fabulously forever.” And, of course, you believe it. To hell with tomorrow. To hell with all problems and barriers. Nothing matters but the Spectacular Now.

Besides, it doesn’t matter if it’s real. It never does with dreams. They aren’t anything anyway but lifesavers to cling to so you don’t drown. Life is an ocean, and most everyone’s hanging on to some kind of dream to keep afloat. Me, I’m just dogpaddling on my own, but Aimee’s lifesaver’s a beauty. I love it. Anyone would if they could see the way her face beams as she clutches that thing with all her strength.

nowadays they don’t do anything but leave you at home by yourself with a kitchen full of potato chips and soft drinks. Then, in your bedroom, you’ve got your TV, video games, and the Internet. What do they expect you to get from that? A big fat case of I don’t give a shit?

All we have is the great Holy Trinity of the atomic vampires—the sex god, the money god, and the power god. The god of the beautiful soul starved to death a long time ago.

“I think, when we die, we don’t lose our identity, we gain a much, much bigger one. As big as the universe.”

humanity has wasted too much energy chasing after power

“Hope? Are you kidding? That’s one thing I’ve learned for sure—hope is absolutely unnecessary. What there is instead of it, I haven’t found out yet. Until then, this drinking will just have to do.”

Everything’s fabulous when it’s new. Like when you’re a little kid. Everything is a sparkling wonder.

but my theory is that boredom is only for boring people with no imagination.

Now, thinking back on my exes is like looking at a flowerbed on the other side of a window. They’re beautiful, but you can’t touch them.

“You have to stop thinking that way. Don’t worry about who has the power in the relationship all the time. If you make her happy, then that’s the biggest power you can have.”

“It was, What would happen if they discovered the actual physical existence of God? I mean, there’d probably be this humongous battle over the patent rights. Like this whole competition over whether you should get God on cable or satellite. And then they’d have to launch a marketing plan too. They’d have these commercials: ‘Call today and get God for $19.95 a month. Get the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost bundle for only $24.95!’” “Right,” I say, chuckling. “And when you can’t pay your bill they come in and cut off your God connection.”

Life is spectacular. Forget the dark things. Take a drink and let time wash them away to wherever time washes things away to.
