At times I wonder why this place still exists. I find less than nothing to write about day by day. Other than the same banal inanities in hopeless repetition. Like a waif at a window, a voyeur to the joys of others.

These are some of the vintage lines and scenes that I grew up watching, mimicking, idolising - in fact the whole bunch of us with a slight old-times hangover did. Growing up in the 90s with the head in the 50s-60s. Here goes.
"I could've had class!" - On the Waterfront
"Hey Stella!" - A Streetcar Named Desire
"Here's looking at you kid" - Casablanca
Yep, this was used on occasion(s). Best forgotten. :)
"A Jewish prince, sir"
"A prince you say? Then treat him like one!"
(didn't get that scene on youtube alas. Also the Messala-Ben Hur style of drinking. We tried that with lebu chaa outside the school gates. way back when...)
"C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate" - Blade Runner
"You talkin' to me?" - Taxi driver
Hah! This too. :D
And yes, this of course! ...
I'll probably be adding on stuff to this. Exams and all. Hence naturally this had to be done right in the middle of it. BLeh.
