Inane Ramblings of a Relentless Dreamer

unabated persistence is what drives us through the valley of hopelessness into the bright pastures of success

It’s been great…

I’ve deleted my facebook, and Tumblr is the next step.  It’s been really great and wonderful to hang out with you guys, but these social networking sites are doing more damage to me than they are doing good.

I’ve received some very honest feedback from an anon about how I’m incredibly narcissistic, self-absorbed, and beyond vain.  I spend way too much time on Tumblr and Facebook, and I think this has sort of contributed to a complacent lifestyle, and a self-esteem fully dependent on attention from others.  This is not who I want to be.

I’m sick of portraying some false image of myself to others, some happy-go-lucky romantic nerd, when in reality - I’m a depressing, boring, and miserable sad fuck with no life and no future.  

The best way I know how to deal with such sad conclusions is to start anew, fresh and clean.  I haven’t the heart to erase the years of history I’ve spent on this site, but my little brother is changing the password for me so I won’t be tempted to log in again.

This may seem like an unnecessairly big deal for a simple website, but Tumblr has meant a lot to me over the past few years.  It’s been a place where I can vent my frustrations and discuss the things I love with like-minded people.  I don’t make friends easily, but on this site - I feel like I have made several friends that I cherish dearly.

It’s been great.  Au Revoir.

cindyisawkward asked: The song in the background of the Jurassic Park/Pooh video is "Somewhere only We Know" by Keane :)

Ah, awesome, thank you!  I love that song - it makes me feel both nostalgic and optimistic.

The Amazing Spiderman - Trailer

This looks so good.  Directed by Marc Webb, who did one of my favorite films of all time - (500) Days of Summer - and starring Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) and Emma Stone (Easy A), and I believe I saw a certain Martin Sheen in the trailer too!

I’m really excited for this.  This looks cool, great action, top-notch and good-looking actors, and most importantly - it seems like it’ll have an interesting story.  With Webb’s talents behind the scenes, I have very little doubt in this film’s ability to succeed, not just commercially, but critically as well.

We’ve seen a lot of trailer mash-ups in our time, but this one - mixing Winnie The Pooh with Jurassic Park - has to be one of the very best.

It’s currently only on 31 views on YouTube, watch it before it goes crazy-viral. 

This is bloody brilliant.  What is the name of the song in the background?

"Carnival" - Natalie Merchant

One of my friends is trying to get the rights to this song to use it for one of his films.  I can see how this tune would work within a cinematic context.

I think I’m ugly, and nobody wants to love me, just like her I wanna be pretty, I wanna be pretty. Don’t lie to my face, telling me I’m pretty. I think I’m ugly, and nobody wants to love me, just like her I wanna be pretty, I wanna be pretty. Don’t lie to my face ‘cause I know I’m ugly.

2NE1: ‘Ugly’

/summary of my life in these lyrics.

When I heard this, these were the most diappointing lyrics I had heard in all of kpop, and from park bom’s lips too, someone who has struggled with self esteem in the past. If anything, she should turn her story into something of a beacon of hope for young women, a sort of: look what you can become despite your adversaries, look what I became. Naega jail jal naga. But I have to hear this ridiculous, shallow, and offensive crap from the strongest female band in Korea. What I’m trying to say is, I am confused and my faith has, unwittingly, been depleted.

The First Avenger…

Me so excited for Captain America.  Can’t wait to see how my hero, Joss Whedon, executes the sure-to-be fantastic Avengers movie.  Checking out the Capt. in about an hour.  I much prefer the matinees - too much mayhem, annoying texters, and unapologetic loud talkers during the evening showings for my taste.

Perfect movie experience = five or so people in the theater, complete silence, and no texting.  Yeah, I’m one of those guys.

Additionally, I need a haircut.  Why does my hair grow so damn fast?  I could’ve sworn I had a haircut not that long ago.  Oh well.
