We spend a lot of time focusing on upsetting things here. Mostly because upsetting things often seem more interesting or worthwhile or fun and energizing, in a backwards way, to talk about. For example, I have been talking about that Nike video to so many people all day because oh my goodness that fucking Nike video is so upsetting! Did you read what Gabe said about it? Read what Gabe said about it one more time and then come back and watch this video and relax and be ready to feel like you want to let go of all of your anger and work creatively with a clear mind, even though probably you won’t. And hey, did you hear that Rick Santorum dropped out of the presidential race? It’s slightly difficult to celebrate because of the reason he gave for dropping out, but also…no it’s not! Not at all! He’s a hateful monster! BUT NOW WHO WILL YOU VOTE FOR? That is something you and your God can work out in your own time, because now it is Alfred Hitchcock’s time and he would like to tell you about happiness.
Yes, that was a good definition! Thank you, Alfred Hitchcock, whoever you are. I can tell you’re going to have a very bright future. (Via DangerousMinds.)
