D.H. Lawrence 

I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.
Boredom is failure… Lack of intellectual stimulation, not superlative material wealth, is what drives us to depression and emotional bankruptcy. Generalising and experimenting prevents this, while over-specialisation nearly guarantees it… Specialisation is for insects.
When you think about it this way, in Adland we’re really just a bunch of pushers.

If a woman wants to learn the true nature of a man, tell him ‘no’.
“Black men and boys” have been the target of the war on drugs’ racist policies—stopped, frisked and disturbed—“often before they’re old enough to vote…Those youths are arrested most often for nonviolent first offenses that would go ignored in middle-class white neighborhoods…Here are white men poised to run big marijuana businesses, dreaming of cashing in big—big money, big businesses selling weed—after 40 years of impoverished black kids getting prison time for selling weed, and their families and futures destroyed. Now, white men are planning to get rich doing precisely the same thing?”   ~~Michelle Alexander
A-fucking-men…
Corporate America: All your profits are belong to us.

His manager: “Iggy, why are you wearing a woman’s dress?”

Iggy: “I beg to differ, this is a man’s dress… I’m not ashamed to dress ‘like a woman’ because I don’t think it’s shameful to be a woman”.

Punk. As. Fuck.

"Have you ever ended up at the beach with somebody who starts talking about taxes?"

I’m a massive Duncan Trussell fan. His clarity about the human condition, combined with his use of metaphor to make complex ideas tangible, is masterful.
Here - in conversation with Joe Rogan and Chris Ryan - he breaks down how negative people suffer from “psychic flatulence” and are actually just saying “I’m scared, I’m scared, I’m scared” through their farts of negativity.
Thought provocative as always. (I think I’ve been guilty of this behaviour as a younger man…)

Ru Paul dropping wisdom bombs: “Ego loves identity. Drags mocks Identity. Ego hates Drag.”

Drag is totally punk rock. It smashes Identity and Ego.
It pokes holes in The Matrix.

#Powerful

I never appreciated how truly punk rock drag queens are.
Newfound respect.
Drag breaks the fourth wall and makes us confront the fact that we live in constructed identities that are actually just fantasies. Made up. Not real.
By playing with identity, it pulls us out of The Matrix, hence its subversive power.

But we are not our identities or egos. Rather, as Mr Charles says: “We are all God in drag”…

Not a fan of her singing. (Bit flat and soul-less.)
But a big fan of her shame-free approach to life.
