“Usually we walk around constantly believing ourselves. “I’m okay” we say. “I’m alright”. But sometimes the truth arrives on you and you can’t get it off. That’s when you realize that sometimes it isn’t even an answer—it’s a question. Even now, I wonder how much of my life is convinced.”—
Promptly dropped two glasses of wine and a beer on two elderly people (also cut my finger picking it up)
Made a shitty tip percentage for the third time this week
Good thing the owner is a super cool dude and seems to like me and everyone I work with is really helpful and supportive (and my tables were kind, forgiving folk). I’ve been very much off my game these past few days. Time to plant my feet and get my shit together.
“Then something Tookish woke up inside him and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick”—J.R.R. Tolkien - The Hobbit
Had a really fun day after a long work week. I went on my friend’s boat on the Hudson, swam, talked cartoons and comics then went to his grad party and hung out and talked with some really friendly, smart, attractive people.
I can see how the scene in ‘Gangster Squad’ could be seen as being in bad taste in the wake of the Dark Knight shoot, I’m more curious if that scene will make it into the threatrical cut of ‘Gangster Squad’. Horrific news story aside that scene in ‘Gangster Squad’ looks pretty key to the plot of that film. It’s a tragic case of poor timing and coincidence, but I personally feel the scene should stay for a handful of reasons.
Oh jesus I didn’t even think of this. I just realized now that last night when that part of the trailer came I thought how scary that would be. ugh.
“And as someone who writes about movies, and who cares about the big, flawed thing we call fandom, I’m saddened by someone turning that shared enthusiasm into a weapon. And even if this tragedy hadn’t happened at the premiere of one of a dwindling number of genuinely mass cultural events, I hate the idea of using an audience’s suspension of disbelief, their openness to and absorption in the spectacle unfolding before them, as cover—the gunman reportedly started shooting during a sequence involving gunfire, meaning the audience was slower to react. We are vulnerable when we go to the movies, open to fear, and love, and disgust, and rapture, surrendering our brains and hearts to someone else’s vision of the world. We don’t expect to surrender our bodies, too.”—How the Colorado theater shooting exploited one of our last mass, in-person cultural events. (via think-progress)
Coming home from work and helping my little sister let down this shitty guy with zero self esteem as lightly as possible while still giving him the smack he needs to help him realize he has to get his shit together (although he probably never will)!
