    Same here.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I actually liked the over-the-top archaic style of it, but at the same time it made it an exhausting book to read.

    It's a perfect book for my commute - I'm more or less a captive audience. I'll probably pick it back up again after Easter.

    "Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over", "Assistant to the Regional Manager", "Gimme Half", from The Devil Wears Prada. Almost all of their earlier stuff is similarly titled. The titles have nothing at all to do with the lyrics.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    Dude. Neutral Milk Hotel. Specifically, their album, 'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea'. Their song 'King of Carrot Flowers'. Oh boy.

    A couple more band names:

    Assorted Heap (?)

    Disastrous Murmur (their first album is actually quite menacing, but I can't say their name with a straight face)
