Meet me in Montauk

I could die right now, Clem. I'm just... happy. I've never felt that before. I'm just exactly where I want to be.

Currently listening to: Beck, "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes"
Currently obsessed with: Clementine Kruczynski

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind kills me. The first time I saw it was when I was in high school dating a guy who worked at Blockbuster, and we skipped school to watch half the movies that had come in the previous day. I fell in love, he didn't get it.

The concept of being hurt so badly by someone you love so much to the point of wishing you'd never met them is just so simple and relatable, so to have that entire feeling scripted out and fit to this real couple is amazing. And I respect that it's scripted to fit a real couple... The kind of couple who say weird shit and fight over stupid shit and have sex on couches. That's real. Everything about that movie is so abstract but so real at the same time. Respect.

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!/The world forgetting by the world forgot/Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!/Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned.
