The only guy I ever heard of who got an amazing life literally handed to him was Hal Jordan. Don’t wait for a dying alien to give you a magic ring; just do it yourself, Slappy. We can’t all be Superman, but we sure as shit can train hard, and with loads of practice, we can be Batman.
And who the fuck doesn’t want to be Batman? Batman has an impeccable moral compass, he’s clever and mysterious, and when fucktards get sassy, he punches them in the face."
Going back to 1997, I showed my parents “Chasing Amy.” Both my parents sitting there. Mom and Dad watching the flick. My Dad, god love him, he was like “oh, this is great.” He fell asleep in the first 15 minutes. He was more of a “Dirty Harry” kind of guy. He was like “fuck this guy’s problems. He’ll probably make a shitty Batman.” That was my father. In any event, I showed “Chasing Amy” to my parents and the weirdest thing in the world is listening to them laugh at a blowjob joke. Cause I was gonna be like “how do you kno… … . uggggghhhhh.” We forget our parents use to be people. The weird thing was at the end of the movie, “Chasing Amy.” Themes and whatnot. My mom was crying. Like weeping and I was like omg I made a movie that touched her. Cause when I showed her “Mallrats” and she was like “I’m glad you got some exercise.” Cause we run around a lot in the movie. But at the end of “Chasing Amy” shes crying because of the themes and whatnot. And I said “Mom, you liked it?” And she said to me, “I identify with that movie in ways you’ll never understand.”"

It was a mistake. I didn’t hate her. I wasn’t disgusted with her. I was afraid. At that moment, I felt small, like… like I’d lacked experience, like I’d never be on her level, like I’d never be enough for her or something like that, you know what I’m saying? But, what I did not get, she didn’t care. She wasn’t looking for that guy anymore. She was… she was looking for me, for the Bob. But, uh, by the time I figure this all out, it was too late, man. She moved on, and all I had to show for it was some foolish pride, which then gave way to regret. She was the girl, I know that now. But I pushed her away. So, I’ve spent every day since then chasing Amy… so to speak.
