My high school Spanish teacher’s maiden name was Vogelgesang and her parents bribed her with snickers and sprite to learn how to spell it and I always thought that was cool 

QuestionI've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious? Answer

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)

And if I wanted to die before I got old,
I should’ve started some years ago digging that hole.
Well, I carry this box to the proper place,
And when I lower it down,
I let it you fade away.
I hope that you would do this for me.
Well, I’d serve you drugs on a silver plate
If I thought it would help you get away.
I hope that you would do this for me.
