Photo 15 Oct 1,869 notes Thinking of this in relation to Amanda Bynes lately. I definitely fall into this trap sometimes because it’s just so much easier to shrug and say that a person is crazy than to actually try and figure out what they’re going through. It’s not that some people aren’t legitimately struggling with something mentally, it’s just that calling them crazy does not offer any help to them. It defines them by their mental illness (which goes unnamed) and places them in a gray area where we are willing to laugh at them even as we admit that they have a serious problem.

This movie is going to be really good. Jake Gyllenhaal has crazy eyes and he should be up for an Oscar.

This song is dope. This is a dope song. As heard in Jackie Brown.

"How Can You Really," Foxygen

How can you really love someone who can’t love you?
How can you love someone you can’t leave?
It’s my fault. It’s your fault, too. 
How about you go and find somebody new?

I am so excited for this album.

You can clean around the wound
But if you want it to heal,
It just takes time.
And you can call up to the moon
But if you want something to change
You gotta change your life
And take your time

"Balance," Future Islands

Blank on Blank, "Philip Seymour Hoffman on Happiness"

I adore this series. This one is bittersweet, and sadly prescient.

If you haven’t seen The Fall, see it. It’s an amazing film. Believe it or not, it gets even more beautiful than this opening sequence. 

Quote 17 Jul
It’s a simple question, doctor. Would you eat the moon if it was made out of barbecue ribs?

Will Ferrell as Harry Caray. 

I know I would. Heck, I’d have seconds.
