    Maya is better than I initially thought. Loved her performance in the "Way Way Back." Talented lady. Much respect.

    Since when did it become a MUST to ask someone personal questions? Some people like to mind their own business or keep to themselves and that's perfectly fine. These forced "societal norms" are exhausting-ask personal questions and you're intrusive; don't ask personal questions and you're what? Self-absorbed? Give me a break. People need to relax and stop being so pretentious and judgmental over innocuous things.

      You clearly never met an actor or artist in your life if you think it's an absurd not to interact with strangers you're creating art with.

    • thelonious monk
      thelonious monk 7 months ago

      no obviously not otherwise everyone on public transport would be close to psychopathic but these people weren't strangers they were people she was working with for at least a week who live a very interesting life. Maybe she knew her reputation and wasnt interested in talking to peeps who didnt think much of her but thats still not thinking outside yourself alternatively maybe she had anxiety or depression you never know. Why would you not want to have a conversation with them unless your completely unable to think about anything but yourself.

    • Juju Bean
      Juju Bean 7 months ago +1

      @thelonious monk So if you're not interested in forging a connection with strangers, you lack empathy. Got it. *eyerolls*

    • thelonious monk
      thelonious monk 7 months ago

      well thats seven days with amazing people and your not interested in having conversations about anything with them like seriously how do you have a conversation with these people and not ask about them not even what they like to eat. Which leads me to believe they barely spoke. It is either she is shy and intimidated with social anxiety or she's isnt interested in forging a connection and lacks empathy.

    I was so confused at the name of Freds Dutch friend. I was like "was his name Gretchen?" But then i figured he meant Gert-jan. God, that pronunciation. Also, i always thought the nunis were from north-europe, not west-europe, and especially not The Netherlands.

    I'm a jewelry maker
    And, I'm avoiding dating
    And quitting math

    Or a historical item
    Or two...
    And a Jacket to go with it
    A musket with a patina
