I didn't like Into the Wild - I thought the guy was a self-obsessed prick.

Heh. He was. The whole thing was a terrible shame too, one that could have been avoided. I get the whole 'nature and self-discovery' hype but that man had obligations. And he decided to frolic on daffodils. What can I say?

Still you can't deny that quote was good.

Also, Alexander Supertramp is a shit name. But I'm going to be nice and call it adorable because the guy is dead.

So then my line is, "MY joy comes principally from human relationships. And sharing new experiences with someone else brings me joy too. Why would think those things are mutually exclusive? You might want to speak for yourself and not make assumptions about the rest of the people on the planet."

I guess if you put it that way, then nothing else could be said. The point here is that the principle joy of life does not solely depend on human relationships itself. Largely, yes. But not solely. For instance, the 'new experiences' could denote discovering and enjoying new things; listening to a favorite song, tasting a new dish, reading a good book...etc.. These are things you don't have to do with other people in order to derive joy.

It's not saying living a life alone is anywhere near pleasant, it's saying that certain forms of happiness lie in the novelty that we have yet discovered, or experiences that have enjoyed by ourselves.

So I guess it could go both ways.

Well for me it's not either/or. I can derive joy from all those things on my own. But my experiences are enhanced by sharing them with people. Of course, that involves risk and the possibility of disappointment -- not everyone wants to take those risks.

But really -- that's beside the point. It's that the guy was presuming to tell other people what brings joy to them in some sanctimonious sound bite. Going so far as to say "you are WRONG" outright -- and then bringing God into it.

Gag.

Sanctimonious part aside, I just took 'God's place' as 'joy'. Wasn't in such a good place with God myself so I'm with you on this one. But back to the quote, I'm just glad to acknowledge the fact that although love and relationships are intrinsic to all our lives, sometimes losing someone can be coped with, as long as you're able to utilize what's around you wisely. I guess I was just finding comfort in those words during times that weren't so swell.

I love Susan Sarandon!!! Especially in Shall We Dance with Richard Gere.

"We need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet... I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things... all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying 'Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness'."

Well, I came close to losing all the people that mean the most to me. What I realized it that to restore those relationships, I had to be the kind of person who is at peace and content on his own. That might be obvious to some, but I had to be hit over the head with it. Maybe because I grew up surrounded with love and approval. Too much of a good thing I suppose.

It's kind of liberating to think that despite any pain that comes with losing someone, life can go on. Of course, I came to that realization with the help of others -- so I realize too that I can't live in vacuum and be content either.

And really, I think that's what it's mostly about -- contentment and some level of peace. If there are intermittent flashes of real joy, that's just icing on the cake.

OK -- Back on topic:

Did they make a "Laverne and Shirley" movie?

And actually, as desperate as Hollywood can be for movie fodder, I'm kind of surprised they haven't.

No, I'm not going to watch it. Everything I've heard and seen says it's awful.

The first was one of kind -- so brilliant in it's sheer and unbridled silliness. I don't want to spoil it by watching some pathetic recreation that I can't erase from my head.

No but Lenny and Squiggy were the original dumb and dumber. I couldn't resist. They had some great moments.

I remember seeing the show on Nick at Night. They were just about the only funny thing on it from what I remember.

I only learned recently one of them was Michael McKean -- the guy in Spinal Tap and the Christopher Guest movies. And he's really good in Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spin off. And I think he was on Saturday Night Live for maybe a season. Pretty funny and talented guy.

an obscure movie called Wrath

the Wrath (a boy Skank and Gutter Boy had killed) walks into the chop shop and starts shooting the place up.

every body hides and soon the Wrath leaves after running out of ammo.

Skank yells, "Gutter boy who the fuck was that?"

Gutter Boy after spraying starting fluid up his nose. "I don't know but he was weird and pissed off. Man that stuff has some kick."

but to something you might have heard of. "That's inconceivable!"

"Are you sure you know the meaning of that word?" (or something like that.)

David Fisher: Isn't it?
Nathaniel Fisher: Don't give me this phony existential bullshit, I expect better from you. The point's right in front of your face.
David Fisher: Well I'm sorry but I don't see it.
Nathaniel Fisher: You're not even grateful are ya?
David Fisher: Grateful? For the worst fucking experience of my life?
Nathaniel Fisher: You hang onto your pain like it means something, like it's worth something - well let me tell ya, it's not worth shit. Let it go. Infinite possibilities and all he can do is whine.
David Fisher: Well, what am I supposed to do?
Nathaniel Fisher: What do you think? You can do anything, you lucky bastard, you're alive!
[pause]
Nathaniel Fisher: What's a little pain compared to that?
David Fisher: It can't be so simple.
Nathaniel Fisher: What if it is?

It was one of the watersheds of tv history, just a shame that anything that follows would never hold a stick to it. Its individuality, its theme, its characters, I got sucked right into it.

Oh god the final episode. Man did I bawl like a motherfucker. Not many things out there can make me rethink my life, but those last few minutes of the final episode pulled me out of a really deep hole.

The mother (Ruth) is adorable. Sometimes I also want to punch her because she uncannily reminds me of my mom, but most of the time I just really want to hug her. That's a very beautiful and generous woman shrouded six feet under by many misunderstandings and mishaps in life. The actress who played her (Frances Conroy) so deserved the Emmy award she got for that show. Absolutely brilliant portrayal. There was this one scene that made me laugh like hell. Hold on let me see if I can dig it out of You Tube...
