Another Brick in the Queue

  1. Looking at it again. Both sides of the story are self-absorbed arseholes.
    Ernest isn’t quiet because he likes it, but because he wants other to look at him and say “Oh, look, he’s sooo well-behaved and patient!”. He wants them to pay attention to him and notice his behaviour.
    The rest of people in queue they’re absorbed in their little bubbles and won’t notice anything else even if it’s happening right beside them.
    Conclusion: We live in a sea of self-absorbed arseholes. LEL
    Side comment: Extra credit for putting them in queue for a Pink Floyd concert.

  2. I think it’s more about being cool. Cool = Impress = I didn’t even notice the awesome rainbow in the sky cause I was too busy being cool. Why does this remind me of Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5, lines 24-28? Dunno. There’s something on the other side of the stage and I think it’s called life. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
      That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
      And then is heard no more: it is a tale
      Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
      Signifying nothing.

      Mate, I like that. I like that very much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          1. I have a good memory for what I read. If I read something and I’m interested, I’ll remember.
            If I watch it or hear/listen… chances are that I’ll forget in the following minutes. It must be something *really* outstanding for me to remember. I guess I don’t pay much attention.

          2. I was wrong, it’s Macbeth Act 5
            ‘As you like it’ has a similar passage but with a more lighthearted tone, hence my confusion.
            “MACBETH:
            โ€ƒโ€ƒโ€ƒโ€ƒโ€ƒShe should have died hereafter.
            There would have been a time for such a word.
            Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
            Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
            to the last syllable of recorded time,
            And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
            the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
            Lifeโ€™s but a walking shadow, a poor player
            that struts and frets his hour upon the stage
            and then is heard no more. It is a tale
            told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
            signifying nothing.”
            That’s the full quote. And just in case you didn’t notice, I love Shakespeare.

              1. How? I had it and I’m not even British.
                If I’m allowed to make a suggestion, go for Richard III and Macbeth as tragedies; As you like it and Midsummer’s night dream as comedies.
                Midsummer’s has an older title, you may find it too, that is “Saint John’s night dream”. It’s the same play, only the title changed for the sake of modern ignorance LEL

    1. I love your reaction to some of the characters, Stephen. And as for the Sean Connery remark, that’s in reference to the villain of The Dark Knight Rises who happens to sound a lot like him to me! ๐Ÿ™‚
