It would be easy to kill oneself. If anyone it should be me. My body is wrecked i am mean and angry. Cant seem to make things right. Talk this crazy talk. Dont take care of self. I am, we all are, suffering and miserable. It breaks my heart to hear you are sick and desperate also. For what it is worth I am thinking and dreaming of you all the way over here with the sun gone down and things just keep knocking into my head. U know the rest. You seem to know everything.

This project rather feels like what David Lynch would do if he were to shoot a documentary. As with his narrative features, one's left never knowing what exactly to think and the films are intensely facinating willfully, or against one's own will, exposing the darkness within.

Okay, that guy doesn't remind me of me anymore. What an awkward conversation.
