My always-charming friend Dustin posted a wonderfully written blog about some of his inner ideas. I totally agree with him on most fronts, and I have to say if I had to get into a fight and have three people in my corner Dustin would definitely be one of them. The other two would be Anders (he obliterates people in two hand touch) and my dad because he and I both know if I die so does the Walks family name. And no one wants that to happen….
Probably the most famous quote from the best teenage anthemic movie is, “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while you might miss it”, but I much prefer “Not that I condone fascism. Or any ’ism’ for that matter. ’Isms’ in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an ’ism’, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, ’I don’t believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.’ Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus, I’d still have to bum rides off people.” I believe in myself. A little too much actually. I’d rather be overconfident than underconfident though. Am I alone?
Life is pretty crazy, too. Once in a while you wake up and look at your situation and go, “holy crap, how did any of this happen?” In American Beauty Kevin Spacey talks about he sort of feels like he just woke up out of a coma. I won’t pretend to know first-hand what he’s talking about, but I want to. Just when you think your life couldn’t get anymore crazy or complicated you round a corner and bump into someone from a long time ago. Case in point: I finally returned Schmidty his Xbox. Haven’t hung out with him in forever but it was really cool talking to him again. It was sort of like hearing a song you really like on the radio and knowing the words without knowing why you know the words. Only less gay.
There’s really not much more I can think of to say. Well, there’s plenty. I just haven’t gotten to it yet, which is kind of exciting. Anyway, I’m going to go to sleep so my hormones don’t type anymore.
By the way, don’t forget The Office.
