Something My Father Just Said To Me

he stood at the top of the stairs
talking with his mouth full
"i think depression is fine
i wish people would stop trying to cure it"
he popped another fancy chocolate
in his mouth
and walked downstairs

that sounds like your dad. there's been a lot of decent work done lately from that perspective too. i think there might even be a book called "the death of sadness"...maybe it was just an article.

i like your dad

the movie is 'the five obstructions'

it has something to do with dogme 95 and brandon recommended it to me, you probably recommended it to him.
