'Scener Ur Ett Äktenskap' (Scenes from a Marriage), Ingmar Bergman (1973)

We’re emotional illiterates. We’ve been taught about anatomy and farming methods in Africa. We’ve learned mathematical formulas by heart. But we haven’t been taught a thing about our souls. We’re tremendously ignorant about what makes people tick.

While scuba diving in the Pacific Northwest it’s common to see a lot of gunnels. They are tiny and cute and whenever they see us they always have this startled expression of “UHHHH?!" Often you’ll see many gunnels crammed in a hole with only their stupid worried-looking faces poking out. I wanted to make a shirt that looks scientific at first but depicts the truly amazing face as most divers would see it.

Today only they are 20% off in my store! Use the code TEES20. I have one of these shirts and it’s really soft and gives you  +20 charisma! As far as I know this is the only shirt on the internet with a gunnel on it!! HOW EXCLUSIVE!

"The bourgeois family in its “classic” phase was not marginal or threatened, but secure and independent. Not its numerical frequency, but unique configuration of authority and affection is the issue. Authority was severe, but not brutal or inconsistent. Total submission was not the goal; nor was the family lacking in warmth. This is not to say there were no victims; there were, especially women. These victims furnished the patients for psychoanalysis.

The bourgeois family, it seems likely, developed into the narcissistic family; the class composition remains roughly the same. The case reports of narcissistic patients allow fleeting views of family life; these do not show parents who, after long, grueling days of waiting on tables or driving cabs, come home to bark at their too many children; but parents who are relatively successful, whose energies are directed towards themselves and their careers; and who tend to be enlightened but also cold to the few children at home.
 That narcissism may be circumscribed by class does not, of course, dispose of it. The bourgeoisie makes society in its own image.”

— Russell Jacoby “Narcissism and the Crisis of Capitalism” in Telos (1980)
