While the popular media bombards us with aggression, decay and bloodshed, reminding us that death is a constant companion on every step we take, it would make sense to just engrave memento mori on your telly.
However in western society, unlike say North Korean, you have the choice to free yourself from the apparatus and rather lead your life by Memento vivere which stands for “Remember to live”.
Alrgiht so, I have a lot of time on my hands right now so I’ll be brief and copypaste a list of awesome films, I’ve yet to see and a screenshot from the movie Teeth as an opening to this bloggetry.
