I slept for what 1.5 hours? anyway now I’m awake, on the way to the airport, and grumpy.
Tina’s going to be on Letterman Sept 5. I guess this means I’m going to see David Letterman.
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.

gaelle: I'm a friend of Tina, but she probably doesn't care as I do. I love SNL, been there several time, been recognized by one of the pages. (What?) Oh, sent my resume to Little Stranger Inc. Lived in HK, worked at Disney, and actually studying at NYU. I love comedy as much as I love food, and I'm really trying to not stalking Tina (working on that one with a psy called the internet, not very efficient), I do piano and parody songs with a lot of "fuck" in it. I'm a rebellish, in my way, kind of...
kate: I'm Camille! I'm super enthusiastic about life and a smarty-pants Ravenclaw with a commitment to absorbing as much comedy as possible (Except Parks and Rec, whaaa?). I'm a global citizen and freely give abundant friendship.
