Not LMM’s Hamilton Mixtape. But the most scathing comments I’ve heard… about me.
Composed by me, mostly.
Mixed by me.
Produced by me.
My brain collected them and made a mixtape just for me in times like this.
“You’re a piece of shit.”
“You don’t deserve success.”
“You’ll rot in hell.”
“Even though you can be fun to be with but you’re a nerd [Translation: straight talker] who can rub people the wrong way like the time you told me you need to focus on your schoowork [Actually suggested by my screenwriter mentor]. I knew your intention but it can be quite disastrous otherwise to the others.”
This, is a direct quote from the Chinese director the other day.
“Have you asked yourself why the landlord situation keeps happening to you over and over again?” She probed.
“Misfortune? And I did ask my more experienced friends to vet the landlord for me before I signed the lease exactly because I wanted to avoid another lawsuit.” I fought back.
“Since you came to me, I’ll be quite honest with you. I know you want to be yourself. But there is a side of you that can be quite offputting, no matter where you are, conservative China or liberal America.” The director kept on going.
It was I who came to her with SOS flags sticking out of my hair after all.
“You can be quite a bitch.” Another dear friend said for more than a few times. I don’t blame him. I called him up at 11 p.m., knowing exactly he had some house guests from Holland, just to prove a point…
Here is the theme song from my mixtape:
Look around, look around…
Look at where you are
Look at where you started
The fact that you’re not dead is a miracle
Just stay alive, that would be enough…
To prove my point that
You don’t have what it takes.
