Henry Rollins is the man.

If you've never seen any of Henry Rollins spoken word acts well you should. Why? Cause Wiwille said so that's why.

Engergetic and striking, Henry grasps the audience's attention with his quick wit and a avalanche of thoughts and observations. You would think the man did a rail of coke off a hooker's ass before the show to speak so rapidly for a couple hour set, but as he claims the man is sober as a preacher on Sunday.

His thoughts are hardly that of an Ivy League intellectual, but he has a sharp mind none the less. The clip below is one of my favorite thoughts he has on dating.

"Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts." - Henry Rollins

Henry Rollins is the MAN!
I heard his monologue about going to a Led Zeppelin concert. An intense speech about an intense experience. It was mind-blowing.
