We all lie to ourselves to be happy.
Leonard Shelby, Memento (2000)
I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit.
I looked at everyone and wondered where they came from, and who they missed, and what they were sorry for.

Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn. My god, do you learn.
