Ray Bradbury, king of sci-fi best know for writing the novel Fahrenheit 451, died on June 5th 2012. It was a sad day, but it also reminded people how fucking cool books can be.
It’s true books are sexy, and guys who read books are even sexier. I know you guys like to wank it to Peeperz and Pornhub, but I’m hoping some of you pick up a book once in a while, because I am one hundred percent behind John Waters on this one:
I once met a guy who told me he had never read a book in his life. He was proud… as if he had cleverly gotten away with something the way a 5 year-old is mischievously proud to have snuck into the cookie jar without getting caught. I was unbelievably turned off.
Believe me, I’m not the only one that feels this way. Lucky for those of you who don’t read, it’s usually chicks who are ferocious readers themselves that get wet at the sight of a well stocked library, so if you don’t mind stupid chick you need not take this advice to heart.
Rachel Bloom; comedian, actress, etc, etc,
was obviously just as stricken as the rest of us readers at the news of Ray Bradbury’s death, but she took that sorrow and turned it into (err the video was made in 2010) something we – readers and non-reader alike – can all enjoy; a music video about love, space, and ejaculating on books. Fuck Me Ray Bradbury is a masterpiece to behold: “Houston we’ve got a throb-lem.” Best. Line. Ever.
R.I.P. Ray Bradbury, long live Ray Bradbury, fuck me Ray Bradbury; rest assured that your memory will carry on… in one form and another. I for one, am going to unearth my copy of The Martian Chronicles and rub one out in honor of Ray Bradbury, books, fellow geeks and Martians. Not necessarily in that order.
Check out the Ray Bradbury anthem:
And now check out a photo of Ray Bradbury watching Fuck Me Ray Bradbury while he was still alive, duh. You can’t tell from the picture, but I bet he enjoyed all those puns and giggly boobs. How could he not dig such a fitting tribute?
