"you, reader, are familiar with the vile and lecherous tendencies of the internet by now. Except blaming “the internet” is a dumb way of talking about what happened yesterday. “The internet” is just a series of tubes, connecting us to miserable assholes from around the world. In the coming days we’ll find out who leaked the photos and which room of the house they did it in and which weapon they used, but those details are just a different kind of pornography for people who would rather know the caliber of a mass shooter’s guns instead of the names of his victims."
"We get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds."
To paraphrase a concept from Vanilla Sky, I sculpted a perception of life out of the iconography of my youth … For example, I turned to movies to fill the voids in my reality. Robin Williams showed me what a teacher, therapist and father could be like…
In the scene where Sean starts talking about his dead wife and her farting antics the lines were ad-libbed by Robin Williams, which is why Matt Damon is laughing so hard. The scene took everyone by surprise. According to Damon in the DVD commentary, this caused the cameraman to laugh so hard that the camera can be seen moving up and down slightly.
These are the stories that make cinema great. I really admire a person who can adlib.

To call myself beloved, to feel myself
