Outgoing Transmission – Defending My Life — 1 Comment

  1. Awesome choice to cover! It seems like a whole generation has run across this one from being bored on a summer afternoon while checking out what’s on Comedy Central. Which is a shame, because it’s an awesome one.

    While it’s coming from a completely different context, the lens this film puts on our fears speaks volumes to me. As time goes by and I look inward and backward, I find a massive portion of this life has been defined by my struggle to tackle fear. Whether it be “minor” ones (a bad fear of fireworks and thunderstorms”, to more deep seeded ones that require a massive amount of introspection. Either way, facing it can be and IS a real struggle, and facing it should never be taken lightly by yourself OR OTHERS.

    I’ll now pretentiously end this rant with a quote from another good one.

    Archie Gates: You’re scared, right?
    Conrad Vig: Maybe.
    Archie Gates: The way it works is, you do the thing you’re scared shitless of, and you get the courage AFTER you do it, not before you do it.
    Conrad Vig: That’s a dumbass way to work. It should be the other way around.
    Archie Gates: I know. That’s the way it works.
