I really like this dude.
Like he’s so open and cheesy and he looks at me like I put the stars in the sky.
He’s seen me without make up ,messy hair and still says I’m too beautiful.
I really don’t believe this could be 100% true. Like he’s way too sweet to be real.
I really like this dude.
The truth is…
…it’s so much easier to say you’re antisocial…
…or claim that you just don’t like people…
…or pretend that you just don’t care anymore…
…than to admit how lonely and damaged you truly feel.
That’s why we go to shows/movies/books because those characters are the only ones we truly connect with.
“ For the last three decades many Americans have puzzled over a system that gives an R to a movie in which a women is carved up by a chainsaw and an NC-17 to one that shows a woman sexually pleasured. From such ratings one might conclude that sexual violence against women is OK for American teenagers to see, but that they must be 18 to see consensual sex. What message does this send to the kids the MPAA presumably means to protect? ”
“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”

Seriously, such a beautifully written song.
Wind and Walls - The Tallest Man on Earth
And so, singing songs of rivers tied to accidents within
Telling people lies of lions, treasures, and kings
Nothing’s more revealing than the dancer and the doubt
Waving to forget what’s never gone, always there, never right
“ It’s not that I can’t fall in love. It’s really that I can’t help falling in love with too many things all at once So, you must understand why I can’t distinguish between what’s platonic and what isn’t, because it’s all too much and not enough at the same time. ”

I made a short film recently and set it to this song (and a bit of ‘Rue St. Vincent’) and it might just be the proudest I’ve been of anything I’ve ever created. Perhaps I’ll show it to you.
