selva oscura: don't tell me i laced upanonymousblack on July 24th, 2015 03:55 am (UTC)
indeed, immediately after taking this picture i went into the bathroom so i could scream into my bathrobe 'STOP SAYING CAPTIVATING' without waking up everybody was already awake because [exhibit a].

what i am saying is the word may have been said as much as twelve more times while i was not keeping count. more than twelve does seem somewhat unlikely as i was only screaming into my robe for a couple minutes and when i emerged my neighbor and his friend were gone. though it seems possible that my neighbor could sustain an entire monologue on nothing but the word "captivating." by himself. for himself. possibly in the building stairwell. like maybe the three o'clock showing is about to start.

i mean really, when you get down to it something about it is kind of wondrous. perhaps this is a marketable skill.

it's that thing where people have an intense drug experience and think it now means they can make good art. which, sure. it's possible that certain kinds of drug experiences might trigger interesting ideas for certain kinds of artists, and it's possible that an artist who has worked their ways through the sober initiatory rigors of their medium could do some quality work with that inspiration. but! i've found that the people who willfully impose their voluminous (both ways, in this scenario) words about such a dynamic are not, typically, the people who have a functional understanding or respect for the craft or the substances.

but a part of me still really wants to get one of this guy's films, call over kevin murphy and LET THE SCHADENFREUDE FLOW.

in other words damn kids get off my lawn

Yeah, I'm captivated too. Maybe he was held captive?

if anyone was held captive, it was the friend my neighbor was delivering the monolog to. last time i peeked out the blinds, the friend had gotten into his car and was sitting there in the driver's seat, door open. i bet he was just smiling and nodding.

i would've just bolted, but that's why i'm not popular. :-(
