"The more clearly I discerned the stamp of materialism on the face of our planet…the more I came up against unhappy people who were suffering from the inability or unwillingness to see why life had lost all delight and all value, why it had become oppressive."
Andrei Tarkovsky on the making of Offret/The Sacrifice (1986)
I miss My Pre-Internet Brain
Edward Norton on the power of cinema.
Too often the people complain that they have done nothing with their lives and then they wait for somebody to tell them that this isn’t so.
Charles Bukowski (via faustus-syndrome)
There’s water coming from your eyes mom. Water is coming out of your eyes. But I know what it is; salt and moisture. Salt and moisture! People say I don’t understand, because I don’t understand feelings, but I do. I know what they are. Do you remember when I was little? I tried to push those tears back into your eyes. It’s because I didn’t want you to be sad. It’s all right mom. People always say its all right. And they ask, ‘Is everything all right?’ And you reply with, ‘Yes, everything’s right. Everything’s just all right.’ Yes, I’m a different cult. But I’m training myself. I’m in bits, but I’ve been reborn.

|Ben:||Now she's going to say, "Goodmorning Ben"|
|Ben:||People say it whether it's a goodmorning or not. "Goodmorning Mom", people never say bad morning.|
Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing.
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art.
