"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

those lines...

...from the two movies i watched yesterday.


"I love you. And not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. And it's not because you're unattainable. I love you. Very simple, very truly. You're the epitome of every attribute and quality I've ever looked for in another person. I know you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you'd ever consider. But I had to say it. I can't take this anymore. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are. I know this will probably queer our friendship - no pun intended - but I had to say it, because I've never felt this before, and I like who I am because of it. And if bringing it to light means we can't hang out anymore, then that hurts me. But I couldn't allow another day to go by without getting it out there, regardless of the outcome, which by the look on your face is to be the inevitable shoot-down. And I'll accept that. But I know some part of you is hesitating for a moment, and if there is a moment of hesitation, that means you feel something too. All I ask is that you not dismiss that - at least for ten seconds - and try to dwell in it."
-- from the movie, Chasing Amy


"If you ever find a moment, spare a thought for me."
-- from the movie, The Phantom of the Opera

  3. thanks for greeting me, mark.

    tsutsugamushi, maybe it's familiar because it's something you could easily think of sayin' (well, maybe not the exact words, but the ideas) or maybe you've come across it in some e-mail or in other blogs.

    yes, the fair has started! i haven't been inside the fair grounds for this year's fair yet but from where i'm typing this, i can hear the bands. i can hear their music and voices go on 'til dawn.

    i might go inside the fair grounds on thursday or friday. i haven't heard slapshock, razorback live.
