PointlessPills #9

“That’s really all this is. That’s how things work for me. I go from this place, this person to that place or person. And, you know, it doesn’t really make that much difference. I’ve known all different kinds of people. Hung out with them, lived with them, watched them act things out in their own little ways. And to me… To me, those people I’ve known are like a series of rooms, just like all the places where I’ve spent time. You walk in for the first time curious about this new room — the lamp, TV, whatever. And then, after a while, the newness is gone, completely. And then there’s this kind of dread, kind of creeping dread. You probably don’t even know what I’m talking about. But anyway I guess the point of all this is that after a while, something tells you, some voice speaks to you, and that’s it. Time to split. Go someplace else. People are going to be basically the same. Maybe use some different kind of refrigerator or toilet or something. But this thing tells you, and you have to start to drift.”

Jim Jarmush, Permanent vacation, 1980
