    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    You look like Dr House. This might mean that you can be a dick and nobody will call you out on it.

    I've been offered an extra 20 by someone if I can wax-twirl the ends by the end of the month, but I don't think I'm going to make it :-(

    On the upside, someone at work has offered me an extra 5 to trim it and wear a Hitler tache for the last day at work.


    When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
