foster tour

yea so I’m gonna need

newsies and tuck everlasting and bandstand to come back to broadway thanks

And it’s gonna get easier and easier, and more and more convenient, and more and more pleasurable, to be alone with images on a screen, given to us by people who do not love us but want our money.
—  David Foster Wallace speaking with David Lipsky. 1996. (AOCYEUBY pg. 86)

It may be in the old days what was known as a spiritual crisis: feeling as though every axiom in your life turned out to be false… and there was actually nothing. And that you were nothing. And that it’s all a delusion and you’re so much better than everybody ‘cause you can see how this is just a delusion, and you’re so much worse because you can’t fucking function. - The End of the Tour (2015)

“It’s just the feeling as though the entire, every axiom of your life has turned out to be false, and that there’s actually nothing, and you’re nothing, and it’s all a delusion. And you’re so much better than everyone else ‘cause you can see that this is just a delusion, and you’re so much worse because you can’t fucking function.”

The End of the Tour (2015) - Dir. James Ponsoldt

When I think of this trip, I see David and me in the front seat of his car. We are both so young. He wants something better than he has. I want precisely what he has already. Neither of us knows where our lives are going to go. It smells like chewing tobacco, soda and smoke. And the conversation is the best one I ever had.”

‘The End of the Tour’, James Ponsoldt (2015)

It may be what in the old days was called a spiritual crisis or whatever.

And that you were better than everyone else because you saw that it was a delusion, and yet you were worse because you couldn’t function.
