Shane's prose is eloquent, honest, and hits the reader like a ton of bricks. Causing the reader to want to comment, and subscribe because they just cannot help themselves. I am one of those readers/followers.
I hate to admit this, but jealousy is seeping out of pours by this mans ability to take the written word, and bring it to life. When he writes about Heroin even a non user can relate. Shane was given such a great ability, that he worked on, and by reading books, and even perhaps studying the Literate, he has become...dare I say it? The William S. Burroughs of a new generation.
Shane, I make this promise to myself, I will become a better writer of prose, by both reading and studying your blog along with comments that accompany, and by reading book after book, and tossing the TV out the god damn window, and watch it fall the 14 stories I've imagined myself falling a million times in a day.
I do believe that would be very cathartic for me, but the pawn shop is a better substitute, as I could make some money from the TV, that is and has been hindering my writing skills.
Shane has 130 some followers, and my blog has a measly 40 followers, and for each of those 40 followers I am grateful beyond words, or not beyond words, because there are so few things words cannot describe, and so many things words can describe. When I say, "beyond words" means I'm too lazy to put it into words that show my appreciation for my followers.
All my kisses, and Death threats, to you Shane, and your Heroin Head blog.
Lots of Love
