    Is this it? Is this what its all about?

    Was watching Scarface and this scene, specifically this quote:

    "Is this it? That's what it's all about, Manny? Eating, drinking, ****ing, sucking? Snorting? Then what? You're 50. You got a bag for a belly. You got t*ts, you need a bra. They got hair on them. You got a liver, they got spots on it, and you're eating this ****in' ****, looking like these rich ****ing mummies in here..."

    Got me all existential up in this piece. Is this really it? All around us, dressed up in various guises and levels of social acceptability, is distraction and escapism from the reality of our situation. Now this "reality" changes from person to person as it all depends on how deep you're wiling to go and whether you skim the surface and accept what it is or if you peer behind the curtain to see what the real deal is but thats a whole nother tangent.

    What I'm saying is best encapsulated in this clip:

    "You're trapped, Like a nightmare you keep waking up into".

    And washed down with this:

    What say ye, my happy little bunnies?

    And before you ask, no I'm not depressed, just nicely pished.

    Right, I'm off to climb the Empire State Building 1657 times.

    The thing is, I know what it's all about:

    The Hokey Cokey.

    I say it's balls.

    For instance, I've already spent 25,915 days having sex and I'm only 40. Work that out, so-called scientists!

    I work to live not live to work.

    And yet, it feels like I spend so much time at work that my life is passing me by.

    When I started my current job I was promised an amazing work / life balance but it's been downhill since early last year.

    That is part of the point I'm making, we are given the gift in life and straight away are institutionalised in "school" before evolving into our prime and being enslaved to varying degrees by work which keeps most running in the wheel until they are knackered and at which point you get there "hurrah, here's your pension to spend on biscuits and old man pants. Remember to watch as much day time tv as possible. Kthxbye" and every mug walks around thinking that's normal.

    It sounds like you need to move to Zen Monkey's commune!

    My life is pretty great. Granted, Iím constantly exhausted (is that just what itís like after a certain age?) and I wish I had more money and more time and, like everyone, I have a load to complain about but the biggest negative is probably that I spend so much time not realising how great my life is. Iím fortunate in many ways.

    Oh and beating the bratwurst has to count or I have a lot of catching up to do.

    To strip things down to their very essence, we're here to have kids then raise them and pop off so life is fairly easy objective to meet.

    In terms of society etc, complaining about the state of things is the norm but practically speaking no generation in the history of mankind has had it better so really things are looking pretty good...

    Oh no... I've heard that before...
