MsKarma: it sure is
MrTambourineManD: what did you come to on the american
MsKarma: its over
MrTambourineManD: that the american dream is over?
MsKarma: the american dream is sucess, maintly monetary,
in in looking for the "dream", wich is money, only they
confuse it with happiensess
MsKarma: its not dead, tis evolved
MsKarma: so in looking for happiness, which isn;t really
hapipness at all, its money, teh over look the things that
make them happy, like, friends, and love, and life, and the
look for rolexs, and benzs, and big houses
MrTambourineManD: exactly, but i like the easy money
part, thats my part, easy
MsKarma: so they have the cars and teh money, and the
hosue, and they think, i should be happy, i have
everything i want, but they aren;t.. even thought htey have
waht teh;ve worked so hard for
MrTambourineManD: the ultimate american dream, as i see
it, is owning a casino, people give you money and you give
MsKarma: cause htey dont;really want the car, they want
to be happy, they just dont; realize the car wont make them
MrTambourineManD: yeah, its superfical
MsKarma: its pure horatio alger...

MrTambourineManD: yeah, i was obessed for a good 6 months
MsKarma: its an odd obsession...
MrTambourineManD: yeah, not evey one understands
MsKarma: well, ithink that they;ve been told for so long
that money will make them happy, that when you tell them it
won't, it just doesn;t sink in... id doesn;t carry much
MsKarma: itd hard to dissconnect money from happiness
MsKarma: and success from money
MsKarma: man, im gald to talk to someone who gets it...
MsKarma: my friends, i dont; know...
MrTambourineManD: its like you have to be buddist or
something to not think money=happiness
MsKarma: you have to not grow up with the mental
MrTambourineManD: yeah, if you grow up normal, you want
the fast cars, nice cloths, big houses
MrTambourineManD: its ingrained through televison and etc
MsKarma: unless you can realize that money doesn;t eqaul
MsKarma: and it ink that our generation, more so than
anyother, is realizing that, because we see our parents
working so hard and not getting anywhere
MsKarma: and we're fucked up because of this
realization.. cause, now what do we shoot for in life?
MrTambourineManD: yeah, except my dad works real hard,
and got us the nice stuff
MsKarma: our paretns pressure us to go to colleg, get a
job, be sucessful, but sucess ful is being happy...
MsKarma: yep, my mom works realy ard to get me nice stuff
MrTambourineManD: yeah, exactly, i dont even want to go
MrTambourineManD: i dont want to work the rest of my life

not college, maybe
