Forecast for the Future

"Every individual without exception bears a potential writer within himself. The reason is that everyone has trouble accepting the fact that he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late. 

Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not that far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding."

- Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

(Leftover Thoughts From) Day 2: Rescue Dawn

[accidentally posted this to slang instead of hyperliving!]

The waning Day 2 is coming to a close and Day 3 will begin in a few hours. So far ok.

What's noteworthy right now though is that I just watched the recent Herzog film Rescue Dawn and it is truly great. The story of this character, Dieter Dengler, a Navy pilot who is shot down and captured in Vietnam in '65, is a totally insane one... but then on top of that, it was also a little crazy to spend two hours watching a story about starving soldiers. Those balls of rice. God.
