"Happiness only real when shared." - Into the wild "Blessed are the forgetful, for they get the better even of their blunders." - Friedrich Nietzsche "You know that point in your life when you realize the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore? All of a sudden even though you have some place where you put your shit, that idea of home is gone. You'll see one day when you move out it just sort of happens one day and it's gone. You feel like you can never get it back. It's like you feel homesick for a place that doesn't even exist. Maybe it's like this rite of passage, you know. You won't ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something. I don't know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place." - Garden State "And I was in this coffee place in LA, you know like Starbucks, an indie coffee place where all the cool people go and they're like "oooeeh" and they got like snowhats in the fucking summer and all that shit, you know that's cool people "ooeehh" and their ipods and they say cool things like "yeah me too" or whatever you know. I just stand at the door waiting "I fucking hate 'em". I don't know why I go to the place, I think it's cause I hate them. I just hate this. There's a certain part of the culture I just hate. - Louis C.K. “I was listening to these two guys, and one of them used a word that really pissed me off, because it was how he used it, he used the word ‘hilarious’. That’s one of those words that we use, that we don’t care what it means. We go right to the top shelf with our words now. We don’t think about how we talk. We just say, right to the fucking, ‘Dude, it was amazing!’ Really? You were amazed? You were amazed by a basket of chicken wings? Really? What are you going to do with the rest of your life now? What if something really happens to you? What if Jesus comes down from the sky and makes love to you all night long, and leaves the new living Lord in your belly? What are you gonna call that? You used ‘amazing’ on a basket of chicken wings! You’ve limited yourself verbally to a shit life! All these words we use, ‘genius’, anyone can be a genius now. It used to be you had to have a thought no one ever had before, or you had to invent a number. Now it’s like, ‘Hey I got a cup in case we need another cup,’ ‘Dude, you’re a genius!’ So these guys, they used ‘hilarious’ and I remember the context exactly, because I had the hate recorder running in the back of my head, I was just angry. I’m listening to them, the one guy says to the other guy, ‘Hey dude, so uh… so guess who I saw today?’ and his friend goes, ‘Who?’ I swear to God, that’s how he said it, it just slid out. Just, ‘wheeeeew?’ Tighten your lips up, man, make an effort, ‘who,’ that’s how a person talks, this guy he’s just secreting words out of the front of his head. So his friend goes, ‘I saw Lisa today,’ and he goes, ‘That’s hilarious.’ How the fuck is that hilarious?! That you saw Lisa? Is Lisa a poodle on her hind legs, how is that hilarious?! Is she standing next to Jerry Lewis when he was younger? How the fuck is that hilarious?! Do you know what hilarious means? Hilarious means so funny that you almost went insane when you heard that shit, it’s so funny that it almost ruined your life. You’re homeless now because you can’t cope or reason anymore because that hilarious thing just shattered your mind. Three months later you got shit and leaves in your hair and you’re drenched in pee in the gutter. That’s how funny hilarious is. I don’t know this Lisa cunt, but she ain’t that funny. There’s just no way she’s that funny on sight. Fuck her, seriously, I hope she’s dead, I really do, I hate her. I hope she died today, weirdly and horribly. I hope the person she loved most pushed her off a cliff, and she was just falling and screaming the whole way down, never accepting it. And then Superman swooped her up and then dropped her from higher.” - Louis C.K.
