the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Viewed 273 times 2017-3-4 20:17 |System category:Life| Valentine, Sunshine, started, active, called

Tonight, I have watched a movie called "the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". It is a thought-provoking one.

Joel is shy and a little isolated guy. Yet, he met up with a girl named Clem (in abreviation) who was active and outgoing. The girl made great direct conversations with Joel. And she even invited him to her house. Then They started their relationship subsequently and very smoothly.

But a few days right befor Valentine's Day, Joel bought a necklace ready to be given. Yet, he found out by accident that Clem was having affair with another man, a younger man. So Joel was pissed out. The most shitting thing was Clem forgot Joel out of her memory. Then Joel got a message which read that Clem had been done with a therapy which could erase her memory selectively. In other words, that means Clem chose to erase her memory with Joel.

Knowing that, Joel was delirious and desperate. The only way he thought of could calm him down and move on after breaking up with Clem was the same way Clem had chose.

Yes, he went to the clinic and signed up to take the therapy to erase his memory with Clem. While the therapy for him was underway, he turned unwilling to do so. In his consciousness (you may call it the dream in some sense), he traveled back all the memory that had Clem in. He took Clem with him to escape and to hide for not forgetting Clem when he woke up from the therapy. Right just a moment before the therapy was done, Clem said goodbye to him in his consciousness.

In the end of the movie, Joel and Clem met with each other again. They listened to the records made before their therapies about their comments on each other. They got vexed that they said out the things they didn't like on each other. But when they two walked away angrily to their directions, Joel became peaceful and said "It's OK. It's Ok" Then, they two laughed with tears.

At the very beginning, I was confused why Clem chose to erase her memory but Joel planned to buy her a present before Valentine's Day, which seemed nothing devious had happened. Now I got it. It must be that Joel may have said some mean words to Clem or Joel may have had something Clem couldn't stand. To put it simple, it is just about Joel's shortcomings of his personalities mostly which hurt Clem's heart heavily.

But for a couple to live together for the rest of their life, shortcomings don't count; Yet what really counts is the reasons why they love each other, and is the merits they fit with each other.

    Actually I may make you misunderstood. Before China's reform and opening-up, an very important policy to China and to the world as well, Chinese women preferred to cover up, only leaving their faces, necks and hands in the air. So there was a long time when Chinese women filled themselves up with clothes. And now, the old Chinese people or even my mom still think they are so exposed with just a little cloth when girls on TV show more parts of their bodies outside, of course, they are wearing clothes still. But Chinese young girls do copy the trend of wearing shorts to show off their fair-skinned legs, which started in South Korea, I think. In South Korea there are many girl groups. They are singers and dancers as well. They wear short dress or short shorts to attract our eyeballs. As far as I am concerned, in terms of the Chinese girls who wear shorts or short skirts, maybe there are some sluts but I believe that most of them just want to follow the trend, feeling confident themselves and maybe they just like the way they are dressed. Another thing to add to that is that Chinese modern girls still want to cover their upper bodies so they choose clothes that help avoid any exposion of their upper bodies except for their arms,necks and faces. So in fact, you can't easily find any sluts in China, yet. Back to the topic of my blog, my point is that the art I saw a few days ago is made with a thing which shapes as a woman's body and the painter drawed a traditional Chinese picture on it. I think it is fine for art to do so. We should not think about sex while talking about art. Art is nothing to do with sex just as sex is nothing to do with art. The last point I want to talk with you is that I am not a person who welcomes sluts, not to mention to be OK with it. But I love arts. Art embodies beauty and inspiration. Anyway, you do give me a new way to think about girls who wear so sexually even when they don't mean it.

    Not all females like to dress like a slut. Many females still do dress like ladies and to me this is far more attractive. I agree with China that sluts should be made to feel ashamed of themselves. Why do females feel the need to display their bodies in public anyway? It is because they are sluts. The worst ones are the ugly sluts because they are disgusting. Some guy like you will encourage sluts because you are only thinking of the hot ones but what happens when you have to walk by some big fat 60 year old slut that has decided to go topless in public? This should be enough to make any person vomit but in ridiculous places like New York USA where they encourage sluts there is nothing that can be done about all of these disgustingly ugly sluts that get about. Is that really what you want? To give license to any horrid old slut to walk about in public without a shirt or bra on? You need to think much harder. And even a hot chick that walks about without a shirt on should be despised because what are they trying to gain by dressing this way? Advantage? What massive sluts these sluts are. And you know what else is slutty? High heels. Why do females where high heels? To be festive? It is because they are sluts. And all of these sluts that wear skirts to work all through winter - what massive sluts they are. They know why they have the job dont they? Guys like you wouldnt be as nice to them if they wore flat shoes and other sensible non-slutty clothing would they? What sluts!
