Caleb and intensity (cont.)

---A couple more things I wanted to add here--This discussion of


Caleb/ME's intensity and people's fear of emotions reminds me of some


lines of poetry from two of my favorites, Iggy Pop and Sylvia Plath--




Iggy Pop--"Gimme danger, little stranger, and I'll feel you bleed.


Gimme danger, little stranger, and I'll heal your disease."




Sylvia Plath--"I do it so it feels like hell.


I do it so it feels real.


I guess you could say I've a call."




Also, thinking about Caleb's relationship with Livvie, the futility of Caleb's


love, and listening to Joy Division, these lyrics from "Shadowplay"


come to mind:




"To the centre of the city where all roads meet looking for you,


To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank searching for you..


Moving through the silence without motion


waiting for you


In a room with no window in the corner,


I found truth. . . ."
