“Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing? It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant. We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right? There’s another 90 percent of our brains that we have to illuminate.”—Bill Hicks (via billhicks)

I think that ours, it’s a modern world that feeds off the repetiton of the concept of disturbing, twisted, weird, controversial. My only objection is, isn’t a little bit too easy to get to people through their guts? Doesn’t get boring after a while for people that write screenplays, books or even people that work in advertisement? Wouldn’t it be a little more interesting and challenging to make people think? Especially the people that don’t usually want to think. Just my humble opinion.
& it’s seriously everywhere channel I turn to, everywhere I go. Holy crap you’d think that’s the only movie out right now. I turn to freaken Nickelodeon for some relief from that crap, and it’s all over there too bdsfkjkbgfhyrg

This proves what I’ve been saying for 10 years that Horror movies, aren’t anything but a mass marketed commercial product like coke. The difference is that coca cola doesn’t try to convince anybody of the cultural value of their product.
