"I once said I loved River Phoenix then he flopped like a fish to death on a halloween sidewalk, I once said I loved Kurt Cobain then he forgot how I loved him and stopped his own life - So be careful who I claim to love next for they are doomed! And this is why I worry for today I think I love you all, you ridiculous people, who are so good to me -"
