Few Things as Beautiful

         There are few things as beautiful as a glass bottle filled with deep amber whiskey. Liquor shines when the light hits it, reminiscent of precious things like jewels and gold. But whiskey is better than some lifeless bracelet or coronet. Whiskey is a living thing capable of any emotion that you are. It's love and deep laughter and brotherhood of the type that bonds nations together. Whiskey is your friend when nobody else comes around and whiskey is solace that holds you tighter than most lovers can.

Find Some Meaning

To live is to suffer. To survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.

Born to Kill

                     Tarnished, slightly grubby conscience of a Film Noir like no other.

Jive Noir - Mosely

        A man once told me that you step out of your door in the morning, and you are already in trouble. The only question is are you on top of that trouble or not ?

Make the Grade

Yes the strong gets more
And the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
