Things. Things. Things.
To see people being super-obsessed with cool gadgets, or talking endlessly about posh cars etc. etc. when an enlightening discussion about what life really is and what we REALLY want (n that ain’t ‘bigger better more expensive things’) would be nice always reminds me of this scene from Into the Wild:
”Christopher McCandless: Why would I want a new car? Datsun runs great. Do you think I want some fancy boat? Are you worried what the neighbors might think?
Christopher McCandless: Blow up! Blow up? Are you guys crazy? It’s a great car. I don’t need a new car. I don’t want a new car. I don’t want anything.
Billie McCandless: Okay.
Christopher McCandless: These things, things, things, things.”
