"I'm feeling cranky and pubescent today, and I don't know why! I think I'll take it out on people I like! Grrrr!"

"Yet, as I drew near home, grief and fear again overcame me. Night also closed around, and when I could hardly see the dark mountains, I felt still more gloomily. The picture appeared a vast and dim scene of evil, and I foresaw obscurely that I was destined to become the most wretched of human beings. Alas! I prophesied truly, and failed in one single circumstance, that in all the misery I imagined and dreaded, I did not conceive the hundredth part of the anguish I was destined to endure."
Victor Frankenstein, Frankenstein

CRAAAAAAAWLING IN MY SKIIIIN!!!
THESE WOOOOUNDS THEY WILL NOT HEEEEAL!!!
FEEEEEAR IS HOOOOW I FAAAALL!!!
CONFUUUUSING WHAAAAT IS REEEEEEAL!!!!

How could this happen to me?
I made my mistakes
I've got no where to run
The night goes on, as I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me?

We're all familiar with the tragedy of being you
It's hard to show you any sympathy when all you do is beg for pain
Baby, someone is crazy and it's you

Do you have the time, to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything, all at once?
I am one of those melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone, no doubt about it

Oh poor twisted me
Oh poor twisted me
I feast on sympathy
I chew on suffer
I chew on agony
Swallow whole the pain
Oh it's too good to be
All this misery

I'm seein' this girl and she just might be out of her mind
She's got baggage and it's of the emotional kind
She talks about "closure" and that "validation" bit
I don't mean to be insensitive, but I really hate that shit

"Speaking of love, one problem that recurs more and more frequently these days, in books and plays and movies, is the inability of people to communicate with the people they love: husbands and wives who can't communicate, children who can't communicate with their parents, and so on. And the characters in these books and plays and so on, and in real life, I might add, spend hours bemoaning the fact that they can't communicate. I feel that if a person can't communicate, the very least he can do is to shut up."
Tom Lehrer, That Was The Year That Was

Boo fuckin hoo you're not the only one whose live's a piece of shit
And yet miraculously somehow we all seem to deal with it
Did anybody think that you would really seriously slit your wrists?
In fact I think that everybody thinks you're seriously full of shit

"You don't understand! You ALL understand! I mean... don't understand!"

Bob: Hey there, pink stuff! Playin' dress-up?
Molly: Oh, nothing so frivolous as that, Daddy! I'm disguising myself from a humanity that hates and fears me! Yet even so, I must defend them against all who would threaten them! Even as the selfsame ones I protect seek my destruction! The angst! Mommy! Daddy! The angst!!
Bob: You've been reading those comics with the mutants again, huh?
Molly: Oh, but they're mature, Daddy! All about suffering! I mean, the characters talk about how much they're suffering all the time!

"At first I loved Simple Plan. Then I realized, with creeping horror, that they were serious."

"Since Morrissey is a human 'Shit Happens And Then You Die' t-shirt hanging in a Hot Topic, he shrugged at cancer and said that if he dies, he dies. WHATEVER. Donít expect some Fault Of Our Stars-like philosophy about cancer from Morrissey...You know, Iím a little disappointed that Morrissey is throwing a 'meh' at cancer. Morrissey hates everything and he never misses out on an opportunity to go on and on about how much he hates it. I expected him to tell cancer to eat shit and throw itself off of a cliff, and while itís at it, take the British royal family, meat eaters, China, Jimmy Kimmel, the Duck Dynasty hillbillies, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Posh & Becks and (insert everything else that isnít a vegan cat) with it."

"Comparable to a cult, Juggaloism began most likely by a whigger who was tired of trying to fit in, so he created his own clique with his other whigger friends. This spread from town to town, from whigger to whigger, eventually creating a cult that compares in size to even Scientology.

Eventually they began to start musical groups (bands by no means) in which they would express their whigger desires by rapping poorly to simplistic beats...For anyone who has read
Lord of the Flies, their culture can easily be compared to the society Jack creates; irrational, barbaric, and short."

"For two decades I have waited for the next Cobain, a voice so original that it changes the face of rock 'n' roll. Finally, this year, an outsider came along who broke the stranglehold of processed pop and became a global sensation. It's just too bad that the artist in question is a Belgian emo guy who can't handle a simple breakup with a hint of grace. "You didn't have to stoooooop so low..." You make Alanis Morissette sound like Slayer. You are rock's genocide. Also, the next time you film yourself naked for a video, wash your feet."
Drew Magary, "The 25 Least Influential People of 2012"

"Other than losing his brother Allie, Holden has no external problems. He is a rich kid living in the most amazing city in the world. Rather than appreciating his good fortune or trying to make the most of his bountiful opportunities, Holden seeks out fruitless conflict. If you still doubt that happiness fundamentally reflects personality, not circumstances, CITR can teach you something."
Bryan Caplan, "What to Learn From The Catcher in the Rye

"Thereís this massive drama about bringing Suzie back to life but she wasnít exactly scary in the first placeÖmerely a mild annoyance but this is Torchwood so WEíVE GOT TO TREAT EVERYTHING SERIOUSLY. Iíve seen Indira Varma in other programmes (she took part in a dramatisation of Caryl Churchillís Top Girls and she was astonishing) but saddling her with the character of Suzie gives her nothing to play about with. It's a dreary performance for a dreary role without a hint of charisma or screen presence. I could feel my lust for life ebbing away with every second I spent with the character."

Chris: Yeah, have we been given any reason to like Clark? Any reason at all?
David: Heís Superman, duh!
Chris: No, heís the Blur.
David: But he broods more than Batman.
—Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Smallville ("Supergirl")

"Killed twice and shot by Batman in his own book, and now the final indignity. 'Iím not actually a very good hero,' says Superman in the $40 hardcover celebrating 75 years of Superman, 'Most of the things I do are not important.' Well then why the f**k are we supposed to read these comics?"

"I guess instead of saving the world from massive death and destruction and enslavement, Superman should just go around x-raying everyone on the planet to check their health. Although, how's that for universal healthcare. What really makes it worse is that this actually works and Superman feels bad so bad he starts his hobo adventures."

"Oh, hey, itís a new plotline in Crankshaft, and here, in the very first panel, you can see a brief glimmer of happiness! I think Pamís supposed to be smiling? But by panel three, sheís already managed, with zero input from anyone else, to talk herself into Funkyverse-typical heavy-lidded depression. Not Ö the food truck rodeo! I dunno, I think of a gathering of food trucks in a public space when the weatherís nice to be a fun way to spend lunch, but Iím sure weíll find out whatís wrong with it soon enough."

"You've always insisted that no one can completely understand your problems. That raises the question of why you won't fucking stop talking about them, then."

"First and foremost let me say this, when Space Marines are the primary characters in the piece it is not a good idea to write them as the utterly stoic fearless killing machines that the rest of galaxy sees them as. Why? Because internal conflict is one of the greatest hallmarks of fiction; without internal conflict the characters are two dimensional cardboard cut-outs meandering about the setting. The Excoriators carefully skirt this line; they have internal conflict to spare, and none of it is arbitrary or stilted. Their real problem is they risk coming across as two-dimensional cut-outs anyway because 90% of them can't move past "grouchy" and "cynical" for their character traits, and because they insist on chasing their stolen Chapter Standard to a planet they already know it isn't on."

"Nobody will ever understand the torment I feel. The torment of an extremely attractive ninja who is lusted after by pretty much every girl he's ever met. Mine is indeed a tormented existence. Filled with torment. And girls. Girls with their breasts. They torment me so."

"You must admit that Auron shows great restraint to not backhand the little pissant's teeth out."

Robin is upset because (In a whiny voice) He wanted to get Mr. Freeeeeze! In fact, most of Robin's dialogue is just bitching and moaning. You might as well replace all his dialogue with (Incoherent whining).

"Well, I'm not fucking having that. As much as I fucking like him and all that shit, I'm not having that. I can't have people like that coming over here, on smack, fucking saying that they "hate themselves and they wanna die". That's fucking rubbish. Kids don't need to be hearing that nonsense."

"The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain."
Ursula K. Le Guin, "Those Who Walk Away From Omelas"
