High School vs. College:

High School: “Ah, sorry bro. I’m broke.” This can be translated in many ways. Perhaps they simply don’t want to ask their parents for money; they don’t want to spend their money on you- they want to spend it on weed; they only have a couple dollars in their bank account which they’re saving to buy a new Tamagotchi.

Scene Deconstruction – Reservoir Dogs

Good thoughts on Tarantino’s brilliance

..social.depiction..

In my opinion, one of the greatest movie scenes ever. Perhaps one that has been referred to too many times. A contrast and irony in its use of music. A bizarre portrayal of a character so heartless and twisted. A seemingly simple hand-held style.

And I understand that she’s from a different generation.  And I love my mother very much.  She’s a really wonderful person and I’m not saying none of them is a legitimate reason, but I’m saying that after having a child, I find it really hard to take any of them seriously.

And so in case you were headed out to the tattoo parlor as we speak, here are:

10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER, EVER, EVER GET A TATTOO ACCORDING TO MY MOTHER (but having a baby is fine)

1.  “A Tattoo is Forever”

Yes, a tattoo is forever.  Totally forever!  Except that a tattoo can, if needed, be erased with a laser.

“Sometimes when a man loves you he can be rough. It’s like he can’t forgive your body for being separate from him so he bashes up against you like the collision could help the situation.
