The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Yap, you guessed right. I watched the movie today and it was brilliant. It might have help that I have watched it at this specific phase of my existence. And why am I writing in english? Oh, wait... Why am I thinking in english...? God, I don't have time for this right now. I'm tired, I'm hungry, I'm thirsty, I got a headache and I want to go to bed (ok, I'll do it but before I'll take a quick walk into the kitchen...).

Watching the movie, it felt like it was written just for me. Wait, waiiiit, I'm not such an egocentrical egomaniac person (only within the legitimate limits). But, I mean the story is about two people who could so easily be me and him. I'm a dysfunctional free spirit and he is emotionally withdrawn. C'mon! I couldn't possible think of a better description.

Anywayz, it got me thinking (sometimes I do that, don't get used to it though). Wouldn't it be so fucking great if you could erase somebody off of your memory? Cease those annoying memories from swirrling into your head? Driving you crazy?

Things are simple.
'She was not happy. She wanted to move on. We provide this possibility. We rid you of painful memories and allow you a new and lasting peace of mind you've never imagined possible'.
Cos after all, 'people are a mess of sadness and phobias'.

Though the procedure in the movie is fictional, recent research has shown it is possible to successfully erase selective memories in lab mice. Such a procedure may lead to cures of post-traumatic stress (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_Sunshine_of_the_Spotless_Mind). So, sign me up doc.

'I already forget how I used to feel about you'

Κοίτα, εγώ προσωπικά δε θα διέγραφα απολύτως τίποτα. Η κάθε απόφαση είναι σωστή τη στιγμή που την κάνεις, αν μετά οδηγήσει σε κάτι λάθος, στο χέρι σου είναι να το ξανακάνεις σωστό.
Και σοβαρά, θα διέγραφες κάποιον που αγάπησες; Όσο κι αν στο τέλος μιας σχέσης πληγώνεις και πληγώνεσαι, κάποτε είχες αγαπήσει, κι αυτό είναι ένα πολύ μεγάλο δώρο για να το πετάξεις.

Από την άλλη βέβαια μπορεί να λέω μαλακίες, dont listen to me...

@ Mi corazon partido,
it's like we are them, ain't it? E3allou enomiza oti einai gia to impulsive behavior mou pou tou aresa (kai gia ta poutanisima kokkina mallia mou;p)

Alla, anyhow, afou ta idia mistakes 8a epanalif8oun... An 8imasai sto telos tis tainias, o Joel kai i Clementine lene na give it another try to their relationship. Enapokeitai ston viewer na apofasisei an 8a epanalamvanan ta idia mistakes all over again. Stin parousa fasi pou eida tin tainia, I think they will...

Stin erwtisi sou, if he was gonna go through with the procedure, I'm sure he would. An ma8aine eidika oti I did it first, aplws gia na mou tin mpei!

Ase pou I feel just like Clementine, when she says oti i sxesi tis tin katantise atomo boring kai diaforetiko apo o,ti itan and that she hates herself...

Very controversial movie indeed. Alla parolo to moody behavior mou nowadays, katafera na 3exwrisw to ali8ino noima tis tainias, do not forget;P

Yo tambien te amo mucho chavalina!
