for some reason i can't get onto the blog portion of this site, but i chose my quote! its the one from class:
"For most people there are only two places in the world. Where they live and their TV set. IF a thing happens on television we have every right to find it fascinating, whatever it is."
Hope this is okay!

I chose a very controversial quote (one that I'm even uncomfortable wearing on my shirt) because I think it will be interesting the see the out-of-context response that it will incite, especially from members of our community.

"He strongly suggested I gain weight. He wanted me to 'grow out' into Hitler. So Hitler gave me something to grow into and develop toward..." (17)

I chose this quote: "May the days be aimless. Let the seasons drift. Do not advance the action according to a plan." I am interested to see how people interpret this quote based on how they lead their lives. And I also can't get on to the blog portion of the site- Lindsey

BTW, Snorlax=Sam

I would like to use the quote on page 114:

"Society is structured in such a way that the burden of natural and man-made disasters fall on the poor."

I plan to ambush people with pointed questions about wealth and the class structure in America... partially because I have a project, but mostly for fun.

I choose the quote, "We're not here to capture an image, we're here to maintain one." (12)I'm interested about what people make of this quote both in and out of context and where they think this concept exists today.

I chose a quote from Chapter 6, in which Jack closes his lecture to his students by saying:
"All plots tend to move deathward. This is the nature of plots."
I chose this quote because I think people will react to it with a confused look on their face, which will quite humorous to capture on camera. But after they analyze it and choose to agree with it or not, we will see whether their mind revolves around such pessimism like Jack's does.

I forgot to post last night but i was going to post this quote:
"All plots tend to move deathward. This is the nature of plots."

i think it will be really interesting to hear what people think about this and if they agree or disagree.

my quote is "You are the sum total of your data. No man escapes that."

hey guys,
i chose this quote:
"You are either among the wicked or among the saved. The wicked get to rot as they walk down the street. They get to feel their own eyes slide out their sockets. You'll know them by their stickiness and lost parts. People tracking slime of their own making. All the flashiness of Armageddon is in the rotting. The saved know each other by their neatness and reserve. He doesn't have showy ways is how you know a saved person." (136)

I believe this quote sums up white noise...
"Marvelous bone structure"

i think it is great that you are stepping out of your comfort zone and using something you are even uncomfortable talking about. That is how it should be! i think our quotes should all give people something to say... if that makes any sense

"I tell them they can't think of a car crash in a movie as a violent act. It's a celebration. A reaffirmation of traditional values and beliefs. I connect car crashes like Thanksgiving and the Fourth. We don't mourn the dead or rejoice in miracles. These days are of specular optimism, of self-celebration... Watch any car crash in any American movie. It is a high Spirited moment .. The people who stage these crashes are able to capture a lightheartedness, a carefree enjoyment that car crashes in foreign movies can never approach. Look past the violence." (pg 218) bout them apples :)

its a little lengthy, but its kinda true if you think about it. Taking the heavyness out of death and disaster.
