In Capitalism the marketed feeling, fame, has always been favored
Other feelings (in this context) have been dissolved in the ridiculousness of dance scenes (w/ older men and younger lovers)
here the stupid naive, affective, idealistic feeling loses against
skill as anesthesia
The need for self-defense seems as vulgar as direct (which is not the same)

I did not expect the seriousness it had
It had that moment of confrontation
as if we were doing something to them
it wasn't even like that.
