it’s been a gloomy day. my sister is at my aunt and uncle’s place, my parents’ flight landed in Baltimore an hour ago, and again I am reminded by how short life can be and how significant insignificant moments can be.
My body aches and my mind is sore. Everything will be okay in the end. In the meantime I’ll see what I can do to come to peace with myself
#no one realizes the significance of this #the point of this movie is not that you will find another love #it’s that douches like tom will keep falling into the cycle of chasing a manic pixie dream girl #and probably think that she’s the one #but guess what? just because you listen to the same music or because she has a cute name #doesn’t mean that you’re meant for each other #500 days of summer the most misunderstood hipster hit the world has ever seen
And let’s talk about the fact that Joseph Gordon Levitt himself said the point of the movie is not so you’d feel bad for him and fall in love with him, it’s so you’d realize how selfish some people are.
Actual quote from him from an interview:
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is.”
"He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”
is this frozen?
Don’t let them in
Don’t let them see
Be the old man you always have to be
Oh Doug if only there was a master out there who loved you.
i’ve got to be better.
