The funny part is that, after years of intentional work, I have exorcized my attraction to the unattainable gorgeous drug addict or whatever the f*ck right out of my system. I have not had interest in unrequited love in what feels like 100 years and is certainly over a decade. I remember the very day I put down that drug. Things are great. I have never looked back. And in fact looking back is often gross, sickening, so very unattractive, sad, boring, old. Yuck. Because now I truly love present people who are here, now, open, participating, alive, kind, gorgeous in a new better way.....but....
BUT! When I watch the Gen X footage from that DOA film, I can still feel in my body the ancient cellular chemical reaction. I can feel the ache of lust and desire of being a teenager as if it were happening right now. I am right there.
They say that the things that left an imprint on your young brain from that special time of adolescence and early teens stay with you forever. I happily know better than to believe the hype of my teenage cells and brain but it is so fun to watch this amazing footage of amazing music from an incredible time. I am transported. Viva la Zeitgesit. Viva la Teenagers! Viva la Vida!
“And later in a downstairs room she pulls her lover down.
In ecstasy but they can't make a sound
In case her mother might come down. Having FUN….” YES YES YES.
watch for yourself if you dare...(because it will fall flat like a lead balloon for some of you , but for others, uh-oh)
