I watched Perfect Blue and Paprika today. Parade is very fine.
I'm not sure if I have other takeaways.
I forgot what I was going to say. It's been 6 hours.
I can't stand O being pronounced weirdly.
I think I saw a small scorpion bug flying away just now. I don't want to feel the sting.
I saw another cautionary today. It confirms I'm right. I ask myself this every day: did I make the right choice? Am I on the correct path?
I did; I am.
Well, Perfect Blue. The only disturbing thing was that crazed fan Me-mania. It's bad enough that the characters' eyes are all so far apart, his are sometimes gray. *shiver*
People really haven't changed much since then, even though technology has. In that sense, this film is kind of timeless. Timeless as long as the context exists.
I actually don't want to talk about films right now. They're fine, I'm not impressed in any way.
I've found more holes in my post earlier and I can't let it go. How do we justify strategically not sharing knowledge or creation? Impulse doesn't count. If it's strategic then it can't be impulse. We should never rate personal welfare above the wellbeing of the majority. In theory. Right? It depends on the extent of the effect on well-being we're talking about. Maybe it makes sense for someone to do so out of self-preservation.
I don't actually know my stance on one vs. majority. I felt like it should be one of the first things people will be able to define; I cannot.
I really don't know where I stand, diary. Maximizing the well-being of all will definitely benefit the few that stand out, but it's effectively the same as believing in equality. I don't know if I believe in equality.
Some other day, it's getting late.
