Welcome to the first edition of Quote/Picture/Video! The concept is self-explanatory but in case you need elaboration each will feature a quote, a picture, and a video. Along with some commentary if I have the ambition. Maybe it’ll be a special thing for Friday’s when I’m in victory formation and don’t want to put a lot of effort into the Weekday Ramble. I mean…uh…enjoy. Lots of hard work put into this. Vote Quimby.
Quote: What is true joy?
Man cannot live without joy; therefore when he is deprived of true spiritual joys it is necessary that he become addicted to carnal pleasures.
- St. Thomas Aquinas
This quote perfectly describes the predicament of people today. Read it, internalize it, and break the matrix.
Picture: FUCK YEAH JOHN GOODMAN
Video: Why are we here?
My two favorite bits are Red’s conversation about God and the nature of war at the beginning and the two Blue soldiers getting annoyed at each other about finding out what Red is doing.
