One more thing about movies: I really like those things. I usually watch one movie a day. I’ll start it in the bathtub (yeah), and then make food and finish it then. Sometimes I’ll start a movie at 2 a.m. and then attempt to fall asleep when it’s over. See I don’t sleep much, so if it seems like I watch a ton of movies it’s because I’ve got the time. And also as stupid as this sounds, I’m usually . . . uh . . . paying very close attention to everything that’s happening, for whatever that’s worth. Other times I just turn out and let it wash over me so I don’t have to think about how terrible the world can be.
Anyway what I wanted to say is that when people come over they usually want to watch a movie with me. Or I’ll say, “Oh man, oh baby, let’s watch a real cool movie.” And in the last year I have noticed there is a 50/50 chance someone will utter one of the following sentences:
“I haven’t seen, like, any movies at all.”
“Maaaaaan I never watch movies because I don’t have the attention span for it.”
OK so . . . whoa. I mean that’s cool, man. I’ve just heard a LOT of people say these things—sometimes both of these things! It’s interesting is all. YEeeaaAAHHH.
