what is it that allows idealists to somehow enforce their ideas on others ~
imprinting them in such a way that doesn't allow for another opinion?
I suppose we all do this…it’s not only idealists.
why does everything seem to point to the fact that people are much more pompous than they would ever allow themselves to be /// and in their idealistic theories…they allude to the fact that their ideas are nothing simple, but are in fact profound and fantastic.
It’s fascinating how incredibly easy it can be to see through the bullshit.
((it can be very evident in speech, and more evident in action.))

and where do these idealistic theories hit the ground?
someone told me recently that all relationships are in constant negotiation.
it is this becoming the I-Thou kind of relationship that is what is to be attained for a perfect and idealistic relationship.
have we forgotten emotions? don't they have a part in all of these idealist theories? A big part?
My pragmatic ideology plays too big a role in this instance.
these theories seem to turn on us before we even get a chance to develop them.
perhaps if we could have the concepts of altruism and the I-Thou ideal of a relationship on our minds consistently and we could be in an unchanged state...our lives would work in an idealistic world.
otherwise these theories are incomplete, and in their incompleteness, inconsistent.
They are fabricated as self help and are too idealistic for a pragmatist.
something is flawed.
can we love ourselves completely?
something always throws us off.
our motives for self-love are skewed.
Are our ideas altogether distorted?

oh, the detriment of introspection.

no. the pictures are not mine.
and no. i have not seen Elizabethtown. i couldn't bear to see it after hearing its terrible reviews.
instead, i am able to bask in the soundtrack without the movie ruining the music for me.
Mel, please tell me you've heard My Father's Gun...

yes. just bought the soundtrack. but the song doesn't do justice without seeing the character that it is supposed to travel alongside.

please give it a chance. it brings a joy for living. its beautiful. ...just simply beautiful.

the reviews are never right. i mean, come on...they said "gayback mountain" or whatever its called was good. i hope i didn't offend anyone. but they're wrong. and ...and i'd like to see what you think because i just about really loved it. it reminds me of almost famous in a different sort of .....way.

i miss you.
