Man, everything sounds better if the T-1000 says it. Try it:
“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul.” said the T-1000.
“Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderley again...” said the T-1000.
“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us,” The T-1000 thought to himself, staring out at the water.

You can read more about his project here, and check out his blog to
join the legions begging him to publish this book immediately see more of his art, including the extraordinary “Loneliest Unicorn.”
