What is the point?

This scene in My So-Called Life, where Rayanne is quizzing Brian on the mouse experiment, and finally asks "What is the point?" (It happens in the first minute; sorry, embedding is disabled.)

Every now and then, I have a kind of nihilistic breakdown, and I ask myself that question about ... everything, pretty much.

Luckily, it passes.

  1. I get the same way. It passes, and I think that is the point. :)

  2. It's funny, because I'm a basically happy person. An old friend of mine once called me a "Smihilist."

  3. Rayanne remains a top girl crush... ... that's the point! :)

    (I always get that feeling when something big and social is about to happen, so I feel ya. I'm not leaving my apartment this weekend because I'm starting to get anxious and what-does-it-all-mean-teary-eyed just standing in check out lines.)

    PS- are you coming to the Rose Metal thing on Thursday at which I will also be reading? Because IF SO!
