Grindhouse: Death Proof (2007) is next for me but i'm not looking forward to it cuz the horror special effects in From Dusk Til Dawn (1996) were way too much for me. like not to the point where i had to stop watching the movie or where i got seriously disturbed, i just felt it was too much, like when you add too much flavor in a dish.

i'm about halfway through watching quentin taratino's filmography (all the films he's written for) and something that's been surprising to me is that i find the pacing of his films in general way too slow. like i have to watch most of them at 2x speed. the only one the slow pace has worked super well for me is Jackie Brown (1997), which is by far my favorite one

容易緊張的我應該不要看那麼多搶劫片 :blobsweats: 可是就是實在太好看了

i looked him up cuz i'm reading this right now and i really like the critiques it has (CW for cluster b albeism and the anti-Romani g slur). it's been helpful to me to read as a complement to Desmond's Cynics, because ancient Cynics seemed to have been arguing for an anti-civ & anprim kind of individualist anarchism as praxis. it's also been grounding for me to read as someone who's going insane and feeling like i have no political roadmap except one that leads to hell.

why did i think Murray Bookchin was born in the fucking 1800s. i just looked him up and found out he was born in the 1920s and died in 2006. what the hell.

(the answer is it's because everyone who ever talks about anarchism online brings up his name with other anarchist writers born in the 1800s so i just assumed they were all contemporaries. stupid, stupid, stupid.)

something i'm really having friction with in ancient Cynicism is the principle of self-sufficiency (my principle has remained interdependence, that everyone should be able to rely on each other. what led me to Cynicism (and also nihilism) was the recurring problem i've had to face: mutual alienation--a mutual inability to rely on each other because of conflicting expectations. i'm looking for a better theory of mediation, of reconcilation, of repair from betrayal--not to give up on people.)

"For the person who is always luxuriating and never touches ponos will end up unable to endure any pain at all, and also not able to feel any pleasure, not even the most intense."

which makes this a great book to read in tandem with Bret Easton Ellis' books about yuppies

like look at this diagnosis and tell me it's not exactly what Patrick Bateman is suffering from

"Anaximander also speaks of the injustice of nature: when summer comes, its heat and dryness drive out the cold and wet of winter-time; when the sun shines, it steals water from organisms, rivers and lakes; an organism lives by robbing other organisms of their lives. From this perspective, it seems that all things exist by such robbery and 'injustice', and will perish by it too."

good to know i'm not the only one who's ever been mad about this. i think nature is unjust by design too

i think this play would be more fun if Andrey didn't ever show up, kind of like Godot from Waiting For Godot

i think it would be even much more fun if Andrey didn't exist but that's my Bret Easton Ellis-fanatic side talking

i can't believe Anatole and Natalie's relationship is fucking me up more than Bojack Horseman and all his toxic romantic relationships but also i didn't watch Bojack while actively suffering from a mental health symptom that makes me irrationally hostile towards everyone and everything

okay so not only does Anatole the womanizer suck at seducing women (he has to get his cheating sister to help) he also has to get his cheating sister's boyfriend to write his love letters for him after he's already seduced the woman. bro what the fuck. you are not actually hot, you are a romantically incompetent scammer barely skimming by on good looks

okay i know this is a musical but i was honestly expecting there to be more spoken / sung dialogue or acting between songs and not this much back-to-back soundtrack. or rather i wasn't expecting the musical to make this much sense without dialogue or acting to further contextualize the songs. but maybe that's because there's enough acting within the songs to contextualize them i don't feel lost

i think as someone who's extremely monogamous in orientation, who absolutely can't stand cheating, i engage with fiction about cheating just to get extremely frustrated at the characters and validate myself in my frustrations without actually having to subject anyone real to my severe, extremely subjective, and ultimately arbitrary and meaningless judgment

"Allez dans la monde plutôt que de périr d'ennui" no actually i think we should all perish. My pain is constant and sharp, and I do not hope for a better world for anyone. In fact, I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape.

I don't know if actually reading War and Peace would make her motivations more clear but Hélène what are you doing!!! why are you trying to help your brother get Natasha to be a homewrecker 😭

like it's one thing for *her* to homewreck but i just don't get why she'd also want to drag other people down with her when she knows how bad the consequences can be?
