(500) Days of Summer: Bank Dance

This is pretty neat though.


Instead they project a kind of generic individuality, with shared tastes that ensure a measure of compatibility — they both like the Smiths! — and divergent quirks to provide some interesting friction. (Her favorite Beatle is Ringo!)

The Other 100 Best Movie Quotes of All Time

These … lists inevitably tend to include the same iconic quotes that are so overused and parodied in pop culture they’ve become quote clichés, so its time they were officially retired. This video doesn’t have those quotes - these are the quotes you throw back and forth at each other over drinks, the ones you work into conversations and the ones that have become part of the running jokes in your lives.

WHOA!!! Attention: Japanese “Sideways” remake ahead.



But boys will be boys And girls have those eyes That’ll cut you to ribbons sometimes And all you can do is just wait by the moon And bleed if that’s what she says you ought to do.

-The Gaslight Anthem, “Here’s Looking at You, Kid”
This is all I could think of during this scene. I maintain Wall-E is the Greatest Love Story of Our Time.

But boys will be boys
And girls have those eyes
That’ll cut you to ribbons sometimes
And all you can do is just wait by the moon
And bleed if that’s what she says you ought to do.

One drop of blood on immaculate Keds,
Mom, do you know where your girl is?
A sophomore accomplice in a turtleneck sweater,
Dad, do you know where your kids are?
Sniffin’ at crystal in cute little cars,
Getting nailed against dumpsters behind townie bars.
It’s a cute little town with streets and cafés,
Her friends all seemed nice, she was getting good grades.
But when she came home for Christmas,
She just seemed distant and different.

Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), “One for the Cutters”

Never read Klosterman, but with Finn penning it, the Fargo Rock City movie just has to be great.


It appears that adults are reacting to young people in early and latter adolescence as being sexual - indeed, as being more sexual than they really are. Thus, in the fantasy life of adults, there is a kind of constant eroticism among the young and the overreaction of adults to youth’s cosmetic sexuality begins to confirm its acting out.

rachelhills:

One of my favourite quotes from Gagnon and Simon’s classic sociological text, Sexual Conduct: the Social Sources of Human Sexuality.

Or in less academic terms, much of the panic surrounding the sexual behaviour of teenagers and young adults is a self-confirming figment of adults’ imaginations.

I am reminded of the little girl dancing to “Milkshake” in Mean Girls
