About BarrettBenedict

How did this come to be? Me: sinking clearly
into the core of the earth, which is molten
then solid, and in the middle is a great machine.
The lever was within my reach,
I could have stopped this whole thing.


beauty, cats, old age, sickness, death, banjo girls, colorful high socks, tangerine people (in the least racist way possible), car fires, the ampersand, <-- things I can't draw, anti-humor, elitist humor, black sabbath, some dogs, beard theft, banjo guys, multiple meanings, cold ground balloons, and Steve.


I am the man from la mancha. My dreams are impossible

Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.
— Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
