“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Two Hundred Thousand

 Two hundred and one thousand actually at the time of writing. That's how many of you are tuning into the Hell-oriented blogging. If you're new here, welcome! I'm so honored to be a part of your day. 

How come there are so many of you good people? I think I just accidentally wrote a book for the Exvangelical movement. That's one way I explain this to myself. 

Could it be my existing writing? It can't be. The stats on the blog indicate that that only drew up to 50,000 hits a day. 

I've wanted to talk to my fellow Americans since forever. Maybe you see something you might want to hear, at last. You wouldn't believe, if you haven't been out of the country, the extent to which I've been on TV and performing operas to thousands of people and organizing art shows...in Europe. How there's a book about me...in Japanese. How there was a huge spread on me...in the Guardian newspaper. 

The one book I thought was going to connect, Being Ecological, just didn't--not yet anyway. That's why we'll be releasing it again six months plus after Hell comes out. 

As responsible grown up I recognize that this is my fault. It's got to be, since I've never managed to convince an agent to take me on, and my manager quit because they didn't see the point of organizing all the trips everywhere else except for in the USA. 

I think it's because I'm about to say words like "Jesus" in print. 

What do you think? I would genuinely be interested. Interest in this book is now 20% bigger than interest in what I wrote with Bjork.
