"They don't even know what it is to be a fan. Y'know? To truly love some silly little piece of music, or some band, so much that it hurts."
- Almost Famous
I get too close to things, invest too much of myself into them. Films, books, tv shows, fictional characters and especially music and bands. It means that all the things other people do to relax carries weight, and that weight is heavy and hurts sometimes, or it feels overwhelming, either positively or negatively, so it's not very relaxing at all. I have to find other things to do to relax, and that's when things get ugly...
But who are you if you're not the things you love passionately?
No-one. At least that's who I'd be. Even more of a no-one.
