"Reagan's presidency put the grit in my dystopia. His presidency was the fresh kitty litter I spread for utterly crucial traction on the icey driveway of uncharted futurity. His smile was the nightmare in my back pocket."

Ok, this is kind of embarassing... About nine years ago, it seems that I PGP-encrypted some of my archived mail files (maybe because the files were on computers at work? I don't remember doing it, let alone why.) Anyway, I can't remember the passphrase, and it's not in /usr/dict/words. Chances are I picked a moderately-good password, and possibly even a long one.
What tool should I use to brute-force it?
I found a program called "pgpcrack" by Mark Miller, but it wants to be given a list of every passphrase to try. I think I need something more brutish than that.
