Should you delete your account in a huff and come back expecting a fresh start only to do the same shit? He's blocked. If he stayed the other guy he'd still be blocked. And I'd never've gotten to the point where I would do that. This could have been avoided if he'd been honest. He's that guy. The odds are incredibly in favor of that theory. Or there's an epidemic of hypersensitivity in Russia.

I liked it. And now I'm disappointed that I don't like it as much anymore.

I saw it when I was 19, right after it came out and during a lonely time when I was all angsty and shit. So I loved the fuck out of it. I'm pretty lukewarm to it and 16-17 years later. It's very overhyped now and I'm more mature but I still kinda like it.

It didn't seem like the kinda movie you'd like and cite as an example of anything so I asked. Also I remembered that you hate that version of Mad World.

The director's cut seemed kinda Lucasesque to me. And underlined that Kelly had no idea what the thing meant or the plot in general. And he changed music that was fine the way it was. It's fine to make a vague work that you don't really understand and leave to interpretation. It's a hack job to insert a buncha shit after the fact to try to make sense of something that can exist just fine as vague.

I haven't seen Southland Tales. The Box was complete shit.

If he's not ThatFanficGuy then we attract Russians with the exact same peculiarities. If he is then he should admit it so people who were done with him a year ago should know not to bother

Did you like the director's cut with the music changes? Because I didn't and I can't tell if it's because something I was used to was changed or because they were just bad decisions. Trying to make more sense of the damn thing maybe also rubbed me the wrong way for no reason. I had to do research on a 56k modem to understand that thing dammit! That's obviously stupid.

Every Wednesday I think something happened and I have a life update to share that's worthwhile. And every Wednesday I blank and post a drawing of a cat or something because my problems aren't that bad and my life isn't that interesting. Anymore.

Quarterly recap:

I had a girlfriend, technically, for about a week. I thought it'd be a good fit since I assumed a much younger woman would have relationship goals that were not very serious and would work with my situation. Nope. She was naive and desperately in love with being in love so I bailed. She also wrote fan fiction which I have about no respect for. She should probably find a man who writes fan fiction. Ignored red flags but didn't stick around and make it worse.

Pretty much done with the grad school application. Now I need letters of recommendation. Which I have no control over. And for reasons I took the same professor in my department like nine times. And he does not use computers. And his wife told me he is recovering from tongue cancer. So even that letter isn't guaranteed. I'm also very upset to hear that and other details from her. I'm not a complete selfish prick.

I got a job and quit a job and got a new job and quit that job. I guess I don't like being micromanaged. And not all similar positions in the same field are in similar work environments. Because individual employees can be colossal dicks. I was incredibly lucky at my last long term job and now I know that. I have two interviews today. When you work for not much money and you can bail easily and not worry too much about job insecurity since there's probably another shitty job closer that pays the same.

I should probably maybe have a date this weekend that's like five years in the making. I've been texting a girl for six months who I kept meeting on the old dating apps repeatedly over the course of said years. I was not in the place to want a relationship or feel anything for anyone but over six months with her I think I have developed something and I've also got over a bunch of my own shit in the interim.

Other stuff too. Whatever. I want to write. Reassessing the direction of the large writerly output I produced last year that I had planned to mostly discard. Sometimes the success of Ernest Cline or Bret Easton Ellis being published at 21 seem to light a fire under my ass but then I just watch MST3K because I deserve to relax or something.

I support banning the removal of a significant portion of an animal's foot. Dock a dog's ears: monster! Declaw a cat: crickets.

How did Trump's term for news reports that criticize with him come to be used to describe serious propaganda and disinformation efforts?

No thanks. You're insufferable past a point I can deal with.

    May I be a dick?

Never stopped you before.
