What I'm Watching:

Stereo

"Why would it matter what I think?"

"It just does.  You're important."

"To you or in general?"

"Both."

"I don't have any answers."

"Why not?  The question is simple."

"Maybe to you."

"You complicate life too much."

"Or you just simplify it too much."

"Quit avoiding the question."

"I'm not sure I even know the question."

"Yes, you do."

"How could I?"

"Because you've lost your mind."

"And your proof is?"

"My own eyes."

"I still think it's a bad idea."

"But why?  It's everything I've ever wanted.  How could it be wrong?"

"You act as if every impulse is pure and good."

"Yours are."

"And yours rarely are.  What else can you expect?  What else do you think you'll get out of me that will satiate your need for a response?  What response would be satisfying to you?"

"...kill her."

"She's done nothing to deserve it."

"She has done EVERYTHING to deserve it."

"You don't even know her."

"I know her more than enough."

"What, from the brief moments you've seen and judged?  The broad stereotype with vainly negative connotations in which you've labeled her?"

"...get the fuck out of here."

"You only think you know her."

"Because she's everything wrong about this fucking world.  The materialism.  The egotism.  Everything I fucking hate."

"And you're so perfect."

"No, but I'm very clearly aware of the my flaws."

"So ignorance invokes a death sentence?"

"Take it however you wish."

"You're no better than the Bronx Butcher.  You're just a murderer."

"Don't act like you don't get some enjoyment out of it all."

"The suffering of others is never a time for celebration.  Regardless of what you say."

"You say that, but I know different."

"Say whatever you wish in order to justify your own actions."

"Just tell me to kill her."

"You know I won't do that."

"Then just promise me one thing."

"Chances are I'm just going to tell you no."

"Let me toy with her first."

"...Okay."

"Okay?"

"Have to give you something."

"I'll need your help."

"You'll have it till the end."

"Then you're gone?"

"Then I'm gone."

"Thank you for this.  I finally feel like we're becoming more of a team."

"Of course you do.  That's the point."

"I hate how you manipulate everything to somehow get your way."

"Because all this is, is a competition.  Who can win out and be the dominant influence?"

"You think you're winning the war because you have majority?"

"No.  I really don't.  Those are just the battles.  The war is the big moments.  And you win out every time.  Logic goes out the window..."

"And that's where I come in."

"An unfortunate structure to this dynamic."

"...do we feed tonight?"

"It's been about that time for days now.  Figured it best to wait until you said something."

"Can't live without sustenance, brother."

"Don't call me that."

"Why?  We are family."

"Sharing blood and being family are different."

"You know you could just not argue with everything that I say."

"But then you'd be right."

"Yeah.  And..."

"And that doesn't happen."

"The never-ending hubris."


"What happens when you finally realize you'll never beat me."


"Because anytime I almost do... I witness otherwise."


"What do you..."

"...I smell blood."

"Hold off."

"She's mine.  It's over."

"No!  Stop.  We can't do this!  Not her.  Not her!"


"Yes, her.  Only her."
