This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

In any case, romance, friendship, trust come into play and the beard conversation given that it included you reminded me directly of the film which I really liked.


If you want to see an example of a photo taken by me look no further than the work uniform one I posted above, lol.

Just look back a few pages.
"Fascism combats, and must combat, without respite or pity, not intelligence, but intellectualism—which is, as I have indicated, a sickness of the intellect" - Giovanni Gentile

”After visiting these places, you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”- John F. Kennedy

What, you mean over the 103 pages? I'll just take your word for it. :D

I already saw that you'd taken photos including one of yourself. That's part of what made me think of the film. Though in the film he mainly takes pictures of other people or things, then has someone or more than one person describe what is in the photo.

I've only taken that one photo, and that was of myself. And my brother was there anyway. Sounds like a good film though.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Yeah, but I was going to say you lost weight in your face. Your face is slimmer. Good for you.

"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: 'It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to.'" - Jim Jarmusch
