But not for long.
Once again, McKayla is not impressed.
Hahaha. I generally love the sentiment here, but am getting caught up with Collateral Damage vs Collateral, a mistake which I think makes this post hilarious, because all of that movie takes place in some jungles south of The Border [capitalization sic], which would make me long for the atmospheric nightlights of the City of Angels, too. OH! How about City of Angels? That’s set in LA. I was also going to add LA Confidential, but that also takes place mostly during the nighttime, unless Kim Basinger’s onscreen and then they’re, like, “sunlight streaming through gauzy curtains and Basinger’s all in white!” That is, by the way, taken verbatim from the novel upon which the film is based, of which I own two copies (the novel, I mean, not the film) because I had a thing for, like, noir at a certain point in my life, mostly inspired by this. If that video were movie length and featured more men in/with five o’clock shadows instead of boys in three-piece suits, I would probably die a good death. Probably.
or: I’ve Watched Drive and Collateral Damage Too Many Times and It Is Ruining Me
It should be noted that I have no idea what LA looks like by day.
Is there a name for the condition wherein one in his mid-twenties becomes obsessed with all that is glorious, triumphant and young? All of the sudden, he lives his life through the lens of a Bruce Springsteen song.
I blame Japandroids, because I was listening to Japandroids and then I decided that I should just be listening to Bruce Springsteen. And now I want to drive fast cars and smoke cigarettes and stay up all night, consequences be damned.
She was blinded by the light.
Cut loose like a deuce; another runner in the night.
I mean, truth be told, I don’t mind living like this. I really don’t. The mid-twenties, with all of their tumultuousness, must be worth something. And how many more sunrises over the ocean can I possibly fit into this life? How long can I feel comfortable living in relative squalor with 5 other people because it is so damn cheap? I understand that I’m not the first person to make this point, but allow me to write it down to jam it into my brain. I don’t want it to rattle loose again.
Guys I really don’t like the new Tumblr app interface. Am I just oddly resistant to change OR is it actually kind of sucky?
