Chips & Chunks

**This is a scene from “Good Will Hunting” where Sean and Will, Robert Williams and Matt Damon respectively, are sitting on a bench overlooking the lake in Boston. What Sean told Will during that moment stuck with me (favorites):

"So if I asked you about art, you’d probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo, you know a lot about him. Life’s work, political aspirations, him and the pope, sexual orientation, the whole works, right? I’ll bet you can’t tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You’ve never actually stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling; seen that. If I ask you about women, you’d probably give me a syllabus about your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can’t tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy. You’re a tough kid. I’d ask you about war, you’d probably throw Shakespeare at me, right, “once more unto the breach dear friends.” But you’ve never been near one. You’ve never held your best friend’s head in your lap, watch him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn't know what it's like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes that the terms "visiting hours" don't apply to you. You don't know about real loss, 'cause it only occurs when you've love something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you've ever dared to love anybody that much. I look at you, I don't see an intelligent, confident man. I see a cocky, scared shitless kid. But you're a genius Will, no one denies that. No one could possibly understand the depths of you. But you presume to know everything about me because you saw a painting of mine, and you ripped my fucking life apart. You’re an orphan right? You think I know the first thing about how hard your life has been, how you feel, who you are, because I read Oliver Twist? Does that encapsulate you? Personally, I don't give a shit about all that, because you know what, I can't learn anything from you, I can't read in some fucking book. Unless you want to talk about you, who you are. Then I'm fascinated. I'm in. But you don’t want to do that do you sport? You’re terrified of what you might say. Your move, chief.”"

**This quote is from Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations.” Miss Havisham is the speaker:

“I’ll tell you,” said she, in the same hurried passionate whisper, “what real love is. It is blind devotion, unquestioning self-humiliation, utter submission, trust and belief against yourself and against the whole world, giving up your whole heart and soul to the smitter – as I did.”

This is a clip of Jennifer Lopez when she was a Fly Girl in "Living Color." Is it me or was her ass bigger then? Maybe it's the shitty pants.

Moloko - Sing it Back

    I looove Good Will Hunting :-D

    And Miss Havisham is such a witch. Well, I feel sorry for her, but she earned it. Sort of. I remember the idea of her wearing the white dress for years always troubled me. I always thought she smelled horrible..

    No 'Erzulie Art' today, though :~(

    1509: That's what Chips & Chunks are all randomness :P

    DR: Haha yup. I like the book better though. And Moloko; I love it when she goes "back back back back" i.e. bounce bounce bounce bounce :P~~

    digma: Lol yeah. It's so amusing to see how today's stars rose up to what and who they are now.

    scarlo: I know the white dress freaks me out. And the molding cake! Yuck! But I feel sorry for her. Erzulie art coming up :)

    temetwir: Yahh! Hehehe...seriously I think it's one of the best scripts out there...

    Finally, someone noticed the bigger "old skool" J.Lo ass in the show!!!!

    And the song is amazing. (Bring it back, sing it back, bring it back, sing it back to me!)

    Fedo: Lol! Let me tell you something, women notice things in other women far more than men. We are very picky. In this case, the ass is extremely blatant and is just begging for a comment. In other cases, well, just watch out when a girl (younger, maybe catty and slightly insecure) "discusses" other girls' appearance :P

    Sing ig back back back back :P~
