like millions of other fanboys, i anxiously anticipated “matrix reloaded” and “matrix revolutions” with the nervous intensity of a virgin thrown in a locked room with jazmine cashmere. yet, my anticipation proved to be for naught, as the sequels proved that the wachowski brothers had absolutely no idea what to do after their first shot…like a virgin thrown in a locked room with jazmine cashmere.
this actually wasn’t surprising. it would have been nearly impossible for them to meet the insane build-up, and, although the ending of the first movie was intentionally ambiguous enough to lend itself to sequels, the storyline wasn’t.
what did surprise me, though, was how my feelings about the matrix were altered because of the terrible, terrible, terrible, ending of the series. i had allowed the ending to change my overwhelmingly positive perception of the beginning, a phenomenon not limited to cinema.
despite breaking every meaningful regular season nfl record, the 2007 pats are still roundly ridiculed as failures because they barely lost their last game (hahaha!!!), and even the most spidermonkey matrix circus sex is seen as pointless without a capitial O at the end unless its with the champ.
but, when ranking “powerful endings” the romantic relationship break-up stands alone, the only ending that has the potential to make you want to forget all the good sh*t that came before
admittedly, romance presents a unique dynamic. sometimes the circumstances behind a break-up are so effed up that they effectively void the entire relationship, and sometimes it takes a break-up to see how sh*tty your stupid-ass relationship truly was
thing is, most romantic relationships are predictably decent and convenient, most relationship trouble occurs because the relationship becomes an inconvenience for someone, and most break-ups are characterized by the type of and prolonged angst and passive-aggressive inaction usually found in me fail’s panties and sam mendes flicks…not the type of sh*t you think would induce a positive perception prohibitor.
i guess we do this to self-preserve. positive relationship nostalgia is the bane of new penis and fresh p*ssy. plus, there’s no better way to sabotage your relationship future than dwelling on the past and no easier way to not dwell if you convince yourself that your past was more janky than yao’s feet.
self-preservation at what cost, though?
how healthy is it to allow a single event to have that much of an effect on your intellect? how sane will you be if you continually allow break-ups to funhouse mirror your feelings? if a black blogger bags a bald, blonde, butch stripper in the woods, will she munch the BET red carpet?
who knows. all i know is that “thrown in a locked room” is my new favorite euphemism
people of vsb.com, what say you and sh*t.
have you allowed a break-up to alter your perception of the entire relationship?
is it a good thing that a break-up welds that much power?
the vsb carpet is yours and sh*t
