So I am watching Love and Death for the first time since the summer after

Last edited Fri Jan 13, 2012, 11:49 PM - Edit history (1)

I graduated High School.

I did not understand the futility of death and more important, the non-importance of life itself.

I laughed so much, I was brave, the man who faces his death with a futile smile upon his face.

And yet the absurdity of life was pointed out to a lonely 17 year old who had no idea of love or death or even all the inside upper east side New York jokes that are played upon a level of social stratification that is not possible to understand until you have been stripped of the trappings of life to lay low the absurdity of an existence that is doomed from the start...

Anyway, the toilet jokes were very funny.

1. Didn't Woody Allen make that one?

I think I saw it, but it was eons ago.

Maybe it's time to see it again...

3. To love is to suffer.

To avoid suffering, one must not love.

But then one suffers from not loving.

Therefore, to love is to suffer.

Not to love is to suffer.

To suffer is to suffer.



To be happy is to love.

To be happy, then, is to suffer,

but suffering makes one unhappy.

Therefore, to be unhappy one must love,

or love to suffer,

or suffer from too much happiness...



I hope you're getting this down.

4. I never want to marry...

I just want to get divorced.

I'm dead and they're talking about wheat.

5. Objectivity is subjective

"But objectivity is subjective".

"I'm not afraid of death. I'm frightened of it."
"Interesting distinction".
