Quote of the Day
When I tour, it's like, well, like a food tour as much as a comedy tour. I try to eat at all the weird places, the obscure barbecue joints, burger places.

I give the fight up: let there be an end, a privacy, an obscure nook for me. I want to be forgotten even by God.
For my birthday my husband learned to cook and is cooking one day a week for me. But he only likes to do fancy dishes. So we end up with weird, obscure things in the refrigerator.
I'm a little left of center, for sure, with Angels & Airwaves. But even when I get really weird, it's not that weird. It's not like some obscure Sonic Youth record or something. We don't take it quite that far. But what we do like are crescendos, and we do like when a song catches you off guard and it gives you the chills up and down your arms.
Be obscure clearly.
E. B. White

Suffering is permanent, obscure and dark, And shares the nature of infinity.
Nothing is more unreliable than the populace, nothing more obscure than human intentions, nothing more deceptive than the whole electoral system.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.
