I have a very strong desire to watch Reality Bites right now. My life is really taking a turn for the mundane ever since I've been fighting the desire to hop on the next flight back to Alaska.
If you haven't seen the movie, I suggest you do.
1. Winona Ryder pre-Marc Jacobs spokesperson era.
2. Ethan Hawke as a lead vocalist and adorable angst-ridden young adult.
3. Strong associations to my current life.
4. And finally Ben Stiller as the resident wanker.
Some of my favorite quotes from Reality Bites:
Lelaina: Quick, Vicky, whats your social security?
Vicky: Uhm... 851-259-357.
Troy: Very impressive.
Vicky: Thats the only thing I really learned in college
Lelaina: Troy, aren't you excited?
Troy: I'm bursting with fruit flavor.
Sammy: I just do not understand why this moment needs to be Memorexed.
Troy(talking about Ben Stiller's character): He's the reason why Cliff's Notes were invented.
Troy: I'll probably be working at Whole Foods you know, playing warehouses and hanging around places like the Radio Shack screaming that I used to know you and you'll be there in the lights and all beautiful and shit.
Lelaina: Oh, Troy, no no no no no, that would never happen. They'd never HIRE you at Whole Foods.
Vicky: He’s weird. He’s strange. He’s sloppy. He’s a total nightmare for women... I can’t believe I haven’t slept with him yet.
Troy: Hello, you've reached the winter of our discontent
