random quotes

I’m trying a bit of PHP-fu.

Below, there should be a random quote from the works of Steve Aylett. The quote should change every time you refresh the page.

The code is was from here, while the content is from here. Thanks!

I’ve read two of Aylett’s books: Only an Alligator and The Velocity Gospel. Both are as mad and funny and even as profound as the quotes may suggest. Recommended for those with a free afternoon.

(Update: some have asked who is Steve Aylett. I don’t really know. Sometimes he could be Terry Pratchett stuck on some very bad brown acid. Other times he could be the literary equivalent of the bastard lovechild of Iain Sinclair and China Mieville. Either way, his writing is definitely to be experienced rather than described.)
