"God will give me street cred...or was it justice that God was giving me?"
Words of others that give me inspiration...
"We recognize ourselves as gods, and we hold our own perspective on life as holy and revere our own experiences as the only truth we can ever know."
"Set your mind on what you want and you can go higher Put detailed thought into every desire Believe in yourself you know what you'll find There is no "can't" in a trouble-free mind"
"Expect a miracle"
-Norman Vincent Peale
"Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."
-William Butler Yeats
"All that most maddens and torments; all that stirs up the lees of things; all truth with malice in it; all that cracks the sinews and cakes the brain; all the subtle demonisms of life and thought; all evil, to crazy Ahab, were visibly personified, and made practically assailable in Moby Dick. He piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart's shell upon it."
Herman Melville, Moby Dick, 1851
"Life is simply a collection of memories...but memories are like starlight...they live forever." William Fries (Written as C. W. McCall)
"Remember, remember, the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot."
-The Bonfire Prayer
"Minimalism can still produce surprises. Here Karl Lagerfeld adds a discrete flash on skin to Chanel's floorsweeping draped entrails"
-Nake Ape, Fashion Freak
"Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share" -Henry Ducard "That is why it is so important" -Bruce Wayne
"I have come here to kick ass and chew bubblegum...and I am all out of bubblegum"
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT LORD OF THE RINGS ALREADY.
The only thing I do differently than most people is that I do whatever I want. Most people let their actions become dictated to them by what other people might think, fear of attention or discrimination or what have you. It's not that I think I'm better than other people, I just think I'm better than being controlled by other people, and everyone else should be too.
Over the years I have taught myself to weld, do light metal fabrication, pyrotechnics, mechanics, and anything else that I need to know at the time.
I spend most of my time making films, such as Emo Assault Squadron and The Legend of Zelda; A Pain In My Ass which you can see at www.sorpfilms.net
I also spend a lot of time working on cars...
Project Alexi, 2005
Abby, 1964 Oldsmobile.
I spend most of my time with these two...
Desiree and Sage. They are with me on pretty much every project, making things happen and kicking ass.
Zachary Byron Helm is the leader of the Agents of SORP, an evil secret society that will punish the stupid, exonerate the mentally superior, and eviscerate the Taco Bell drive through attendants that fuck up my order every single time.
I am also a member of czerka who has infiltrated more shit than you can shake a stick at and has operatives and secret agents operating in several continents you probably never even knew existed.
Ok, so here it is, the DISCLAIMER- I welcome comments in my journal but if you are going to be insolent, stupid, or offensive, your comments will be deleted. Don't bitch about what I put in my journal, if you don't care for it, don't read it, it is a pretty simple equation to grasp. I had to post this because apparently some people could not get the concept of common courtesy. Don't be a cock nabber and we won't have a freaking problem.
Been in the goth scene since 1991-ish. I own 4 hearses, DJ occasionally, still play my original Nintendo (up,up,down,down,left,right,left,right,b,a,b,a,select,start) have little rat friends, I drink a lot of creme soda and eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch directly from the box, I travel in my hearse as much as possible, love cinema, music, and I am learning about pyrotechnics. C3H8 in my username is a reference to my favorite Hydrocarbon. If you know which Hyrdrocarbon that is, you can guess why I dig it so much. Yes, I am probably an egoist, that is most likely why I like to take pictures of myself and drive a car that attracts as much attention as possible. I am hoping to become famous for something, not sure what though...One day I want to either be known as the Suasage King of Colorado, or possibly "The Salad Tosser Guy" (Chris Rock reference)
"This isn't real, this isn't happening, and I've no idea what the days may bring. We're dying so fast that we can't even bleed I don't know what to believe, because it's killing me slowly... I want it realized tonight, while everything's still burning bright and this passion's more than right, it's deified..." -Stromkern, Re-align
