I made some studies, and reality is the leading cause of stress amongst those in touch with it. I can take it in small doses, but as a lifestyle I found it was too confining. It was just too needful; it expected me to me there for it ALL the time, and with all I have to do---I had to let something go.

Dustin Hoffman Breaks Down Crying Explaining Something That Every Woman Sadly Already Experienced

What’s stronger than saying “TRUTH”? Mega-truth?

Dustin Hoffman on playing a woman:

“I thought, I should be beautiful. If I was going to be a woman, I would want to be as beautiful as possible.”

“I think I’m an interesting woman, when I look at myself on the screen. And I know that if I met myself at a party, I would never talk to that character, because she doesn’t fulfill, physically, the demands that we’re brought up to think that woman have to have in order for us to ask them out…. There’s too many interesting women I have not had the experience to know in this life because I have been brainwashed.”

Had to find this again, the original “Dueling Banjos” from Deliverance, after seeing the slightly sad attempt at it by Steve Martin and Kermit the Frog.

I love this scene. It really gets going a little over 2 minutes into it.

This got me a little verklempt. In a forever-empty, at-once-alone-and-connected, utopian-performative/saudade Lacanian kind of way.

“You need to build an ability to just be yourself and not be doing something. That’s what the phones are taking away, is the ability to just sit there. That’s being a person. Because underneath everything in your life there is that thing, that empty—forever empty. That knowledge that it’s all for nothing and that you’re alone. It’s down there.

“And sometimes when things clear away, you’re not watching anything, you’re in your car, and you start going, ‘oh no, here it comes. That I’m alone.’ It’s starts to visit on you. Just this sadness. Life is tremendously sad, just by being in it…

“That’s why we text and drive. I look around, pretty much 100 percent of the people driving are texting. And they’re killing, everybody’s murdering each other with their cars. But people are willing to risk taking a life and ruining their own because they don’t want to be alone for a second because it’s so hard.”…

“And I go, ‘oh, I’m getting sad, gotta get the phone and write “hi” to like 50 people’… then I said, ‘you know what, don’t. Just be sad. Just let the sadness, stand in the way of it, and let it hit you like a truck.’

“And I let it come, and I just started to feel ‘oh my God,’ and I pulled over and I just cried like a bitch. I cried so much. And it was beautiful. Sadness is poetic. You’re lucky to live sad moments.

“And then I had happy feelings. Because when you let yourself feel sad, your body has antibodies, it has happiness that comes rushing in to meet the sadness. So I was grateful to feel sad, and then I met it with true, profound happiness. It was such a trip.

“The thing is, because we don’t want that first bit of sad, we push it away with a little phone or a jack-off or the food. You never feel completely sad or completely happy, you just feel kinda satisfied with your product, and then you die. So that’s why I don’t want to get a phone for my kids.”
Jill: If you’re a self-declared cold hard bitch and we get along, am I one too?

Vee: no, you’re not inherently a cold-hearted bitch, but you are inherently sympathetic toward them, which means only that you understand the social, interpersonal, and emotional constructs that create cold-hearted bitches.
Our ancestors' sense of self was pretty much wrapped up in how they supported the clan, and how they were accepted and supported by it. However, anthropologists point out that hunter-gatherer affiliation didn't absorb individuals into a subsumed 'school of fish' identity, either. They formed individual personalities that did not prove themselves by detachment but unfolded within supportive relationships.

Watch "The Comic Strip Presents" on Hulu for Free

Oh my goodness! I don't know what caused this show to finally be widely available (in decent quality) in the US... but I love it. I found this because a new friend told me he co-wrote an episode ("Demonella"). Sickos, the lot of them.
