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

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
— Aristotle
