Le pessimist / City of God

This quote was on my Google page today:

My pessimism extends to the point of even suspecting the sincerity of the pessimists.
  – Jean Rostand

And in conjunction with Ioannis’ (or should I say Ioansu) blog on China’s apparent lack of totalitarianness, it makes me reassert that a healty dose of pessimism is absolutely necessary to survive the crap that we are expected to swallow by the media and government.

Sha and I watched ‘City of God’ yesterday. I finally got to see a film I’d been longing to see. And I wasn’t disappointed in the least. An amazing storyline with absolute grittiness and utter believability, I was sucked in to believing I was watching a documentary rather than a film. Fantabulousa!!

  1. That movie is on my ‘to watch’ list too. As for the pessimism, if I meet a person without it in this depressing lifetime of ours, I presume they’re on drugs!
