The TV shoots images and sounds at me. The cruise just happened to be in the exact DVD player that was connected to the light and sound box. My initial dismissal of everything speed said was most likely a dismissal of any part of myself that i didn’t quite understand yet; The part of me that feels private inside the box of clear, visually unobscure glass and metal called a car, wherein i sing loudly, and put fingers in private places and dig out private treasures. Yes, he was frightening because he was the representation of a truly exposed being. I even labeled it as annoying; as if boundlessness was a problem. His discriptions were dichotomous, but relatively logical. Everyone that ever watched this movie with me afterwords went through the same mourning process: puzzlement, rejection, submission, re-evaluation, rejection and it culminates with not an affirmation of Speed Levitch, but at least the acknowledgement that there are entities unlike myself out there and they do, in fact, make sense.

So, Speed, Have you become the person your grandparents wished you would become, have you become the person they feared you would become, or have you become an entirely different creature altogether?
