A Perfect Representation

It’s not very often, in fact it’s damn near impossible to come anywhere close to representing someone else’s words in a different media and still keep the meaning, feeling and emotion resonance of the original statement, but Gavin Aung has done that with Bill Hick’s It’s Just A Ride speech over on his website Zen Pencils .

I had to repost it over here. I read it through the first time and I was just taken aback totally by how well he had channelled the meaning of the bit. I think you can understand how much this speech means to me as it’s not only the name of this blog but I also have It’s Just A Ride tattooed on my arm (FOR LIFE).

Many Thanks To Zen Pencils for renewing my inspiration.

Quote: Spike Milligan

I have decided to add a new feature to the blog. I am going to be adding quotes to stuff. They will most likely just be short entries on their own but hey It will get me posting more often.

I’ll try and post some background info on the person who made the quote.

To start things off I bring this inspired piece of lunacy from one of my all time heroes Spike Milligan

“Money can’t buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.”

The great man

You can read an extensive wiki entry at wikipedia. That should keep you going for a while.
