this is great because i bet that’s what they felt like. Like everything else in the world had stopped and it was just the two of them. So freaking cute i’m sad
I’m gonna fucking cry
I can’t wait for this to be me
#no one realizes the significance of this #the point of this movie is not that you will find another love #it’s that douches like tom will keep falling into the cycle of chasing a manic pixie dream girl #and probably think that she’s the one #but guess what? just because you listen to the same music or because she has a cute name #doesn’t mean that you’re meant for each other #500 days of summer the most misunderstood hipster hit the world has ever seen
And let’s talk about the fact that Joseph Gordon Levitt himself said the point of the movie is not so you’d feel bad for him and fall in love with him, it’s so you’d realize how selfish some people are.
Actual quote from him from an interview:
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is.”
"He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”
It’s unfortunate, but if you guys haven’t noticed, I didn’t get to go on the cruise after all. My boyfriend couldn’t get on a bus or a plane to NYC that night.
Fuck you, Snowstorm Pax. Fuck you, snow.
But I am in discussion with my travel agent to sail on another date so I’m crossing fingers that it will happen because it’s unfortunately not a guarantee.
So this guy was holding a really big, wrapped up canvas on the F train and this lady got on the train and asked him, “Is that a painting?”
He said “No, it’s a photo. I’m a photographer.” She seemed more interested and asked what the photo was and he showed it to her on his phone. Being very nosy and observant, I took a peek from my angle and it was of the beautiful NY skyline.
He went on and talked about how it’d be his first exhibit in a college in Brooklyn and she said that she is a photographer too and it’s normal to be nervous. She even asked if he had his business card but he didn’t so she offered hers and they went on to talk about printing photos and where the cheap places are.
On West 4th, before she got off he introduced himself and shook hands.
I just thought it was amazing for him to make such an awesome connection on the subway! Networking done right.
