♠ Whiskey & Ashes ♠

♠ Hellbent & Hellbound ♠

Judas Carver
On a train bound for nowhere

One whose name was writ in whiskey. And a cult of personality.

”Rules for reading exilian’s LJ:

1. Read it again. I don’t care what you say; read it again.

2. If you’re certain you understood it: you probably didn’t.

3. If you only think you understood it: you probably did.”

This journal is a cryptographic attack.

I assign standard playing cards to people in my life as a means of reference and identification, herein.

(The Tarot, while cool, is a bit too complex for efficiency.)

I'll use the standard poker abbreviations.

I'll try to assign them as I view them.

(Note: Kings and Queens are not actually spouses/couples should the circumstance arise.

Should referencing myself become necessary, I'm the Ace of Spades [A♠].)

If it's tough to see them, adjust the size temporarily.

Here's how:


I use two non-standard fonts on my LJ.

Both can be found for free (and virus free) here:


Scroll down and you'll find them.

They are "Points West" and "Vanilla Whale".

NOTE: The music I'm listening to while I'm posting affects my writing tremendously.

If possible, listen to the song I've chosen while you read it.

If not, you're missing out.

Trust me.

"[Whiskey] turns you into two people: one of you's very nice, you'll go up to complete strangers and say, 'Come in, come in, sit down, for God's sake, have something. Have my bed.' And then you'll go up to people you've known and loved all your life and say, 'Get the fuck out of my house. Go on, get out! And leave a tip!' "

- Dylan Moran

("If I cannot move Heaven, I will raise Hell.")

"I'm a drinker with a writing problem."

- Brendan Behan

"But there are things that you know not, but that you shall know, and bless me for knowing, though they are not pleasant things. John, my child, you have been my friend now many years, and yet did you ever know me to do any without good cause? I may err, I am but man, but I believe in all I do. Was it not for these causes that you send for me when the great trouble came?"

- Bram Stoker, Dracula

"Again and again

Some people in the crowd wake up.

They have no ground in the crowd

And they emerge according to broader laws.

They carry strange customs with them,

And demand room for bold gestures.

The future speaks ruthlessly through them."

- Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Stephen Mitchell
