I was going to write some dumb thing about this one but holy shit! You know when you get on the bus and just feel shitty ’cause your on the bus (I specifically hate buses if that isn’t clear yet). You look out the window or read a magazine, someone gets on and you chat ’em up and get so wrapped up in your shit you catch yourself in a lie and the egg grows from there. It’ll hatch a chicken someday, but you gotta just sit on it. Truth, lies, it’s all here. Film unspools for good reason!
