Cocktails & Conversations: Numb


A discussion of the world

and those weary of it.


"I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me."




What was he wearing?

He was dressed as a dinosaur.

Is that why you dropped out of high school?

I don't know.

Are those even real glasses?


Ahh, you feel that, Britta?

Your timeline's 10% darker now.

This... was 10%?

You know what kind of person

becomes a psychologist, Britta?

A person that wishes deep down that

everyone more special than them was sick,

because healthy sounds so much more exciting

than boring.

You're average, Britta Perry.

You're every kid on the playground

that didn't get picked on.

You're business casual, a potted plant, a human white cell.

You're VH1, Robocop 2, and Back to the Future 3.

You're the center slice of a square cheese pizza.

Actually, that sounds delicious.

I'm the center slice of a square cheese pizza.

You're Jim Belushi.


Ahh, 12%.



“I’ll blow a hole in your face and then I’ll go in the house and sleep like a baby.

You can count on that.




"I was feeling sad.

Can't help looking back.
Highways flew by.

Run, run away.
No sense of time."




"I didn't eat for three days so I could be lovely."




"I don't like it here.

I'm tired of being afraid all the time.

I've decided not to stay.

I doubt they'll kick up any fuss."




Join us for delicacies, drinks, discussions, despair, dependency, drug abuse, delirium, desolation and dubstep.

Musical themes for the evening range from Linkin Park to Pink Floyd, Jay-Z to Mozart.

    The format is a bit overwhelming (with three sessions and the mandate to reshuffle for each) and the noise level from other groups sometimes drowning out the talk in my group, but I did meet a young man whose mother may have been in my class back at Liverpool Girls' College, so I hoping to get together with a schoolfriend.

    Seemed a bit unfocused. There was a lot of confusion over the core topic.
    Interesting group of ppl though.

    Great exchange of numbing ideas! But I would havepreferred discussing great philosophical ideas that reflects great minds. Yeah, we discuss about "average" (average minds disc usds weather, current events).m Low minds discuss about people! I expected topics like questions of "why I am here", ther meaning of life, etc...not numbing idras of alcoholism, drugs and porno!
