"We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings."
Ryan O’Connell, You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody (via spinals)

Pleasantville: Nothing’s Gonna Change My World

Pleasantville: Nothing’s Gonna Change My World

Director Gary Ross says that Pleasantville is about “the fact that personal repression gives rise to larger political oppression. That when we’re afraid of certain things in ourselves or we’re afraid of change, we project those fears onto to other things, and a lot of very ugly social situations can develop”

Freedoms of art, music, sex, or freedoms from gender or societal roles allow us to be our true selves and what makes the beauty and differences of the world. Fearing differences or change does not allow us to connect with our fellow human or with the world. We shouldn’t be like the citizens of Pleasantville, for this is not a black-and-white world.

It wasn’t meant to end like this, Mac Conner

So apparently the Gone Girl movie is faithful to the book’s ending!!!! I for one, am very happy.

So I just watched the strangest movie I’ve ever seen……

Kevin Smith you’ve bamboozled my emotions…I wasn’t sure what to think or feel after TUSK. 

SERIOUSLY go see this movie.
