Ok ,this is fresh! I just saw the movie with the fam and OMG I LOVED IT!!!
This is prolly the best movie I have seen this year after Interstellar. I don’t want to post spoilers about it, but just the feeling it left in me.
This movie moved me. Made me think about human behavior, about good and bad, about love, family, death, life, everything! It was a beautiful story, after we finished watching it It made me think about the story of Pinocchio, I just found little similarities about the two stories.
When I have kids one day, I will tell them the tale of Chappie 😀
Ahhh anyway , I’m just probably too much excited about it now, but I wanted to write this down.
I’m consciousness. I’m alive. I’m Chappie.
Sharing some favorite passages from ” The Catcher in the Rye ” which I recently finished.
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
“Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.”
“I’m quite illiterate, but I read a lot. ”
“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.”
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around – nobody big, I mean – except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff – I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.”
“That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they’re not much to look at, or even if they’re sort of stupid, you fall in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ. They can drive you crazy. They really can.”
“I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It’s nice.”
“The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.”
“when you’re not looking, somebody’ll sneak up and write “Fuck you” right under your nose.”
“I’m the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It’s awful. If I’m on my way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody asks me where I’m going, I’m liable to say I’m going to the opera. It’s terrible.”
“I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be. I know it’s crazy.”
“People never notice anything.”
“If you do something too good, then, after a while, if you don’t watch it, you start showing off. And then you’re not as good any more.”
“Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do.”
“Goddam money. It always ends up making you blue as hell.”
“I think that one of these days,” he said, “you’re going to have to find out where you want to go. And then you’ve got to start going there. But immediately. You can’t afford to lose a minute. Not you.”
“Ask her if she still keeps all her kings in the back row.”
“Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays according to the rule.”
Yes, sir. I know it is. I know it.”
Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it’s a game, all right-I’ll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren’t any hot-shots, then what’s a game about it? Nothing. No game.”
“I don’t even know what I was running for—I guess I just felt like it.”
“Then the carousel started, and I watched her go round and round…All the kids tried to grap for the gold ring, and so was old Phoebe, and I was sort of afraid she’s fall off the goddam horse, but I didn’t say or do anything. The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it, and not say anything. If they fall off, they fall off, but it is bad to say anything to them.”
“If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.”
“I know. I’m very hard to talk to. I realize that.”
“You know those ducks in that lagoon right near Central Park South? That little lake? By any chance, do you happen to know where they go, the ducks, when it gets all frozen over? Do you happen to know, by any chance?”
” I was surrounded by jerks. I’m not kidding. ”
“In my mind, I’m probably the biggest sex maniac you ever saw.”
“I don’t care if it’s a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it. If you don’t, you feel even worse.”

A very special and magical day. On this day women collect herbs with special ” powers ” , people believe that if you see a blue light in the mountains on this night that means there is a hidden treasure there. Women who gather flowers on this day , have to but them under their pillows the same night and make a wish , which people believe it will come true 😀
