I was talking to @RighteousBruin in and Xanga and he said, "You see what you want to see, and you hear what you want to hear." and I asked him what was that from. He said that is, "The Point."

I was talking to @RighteousBruin from Xanga and he was saying on a page, "You see what you want to see, and you hear what you want to hear." and I thought he was referring to the silly Addam's Family music video from Mc-Hammer with the same words. [Link]

But no, he was saying there was a 1972 album from Harry Nillson called, "The Point." And well, you know me, I'm always fascinated by new stuff so I had to investigate and of course after I found more information about it, and - the first question out of my mouth was - as with anything new, "Is there a movie about it ?" Cause I love movies doncha know.

And - sure enough, just like A Wrinkle In Time, there =WAS= a movie ! And boy is it rare !

And - I guess I'm a little disappointed by the ending. Sometimes I take pride in my thinking on how a story is gonna turn out. Like Avatar. I had that story totally pegged after the first 20-minutes and I was spot on the mark.

I thought surely the film, "The Point" was going to end with something clever like, "Not everything has to have a point, but it does have to make sense." And no - they didn't do that. They ended it - strangely. But then I do remember that Mr. Nilsson said that he took acid when he thought up this story.

In any case, please enjoy, "The Point" and always consider in life that many things do in fact, have a point to them. But the real question is, do you know why they do ?

Be looking for more great writings, games, and videos each week !
