Phillip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi

(OST. Koyaanisqatsi)

one time when I was like seven or eight my mom put this film on while she made dinner and made me watch it

and it was the most disturbing, unsettling and just generally scary thing I’d ever experienced up until that point in my life, bar none

the witch from snow white ain’t got nothin’ on this film, that kind of scary.

but I sat, frozen in my spot, through the entire thing, determined to see it through to the end. I made it, but was so unsettled that I actually started crying a little at one point

the scary organ/chanty voices music was so upsetting to my delicate little seven year old auricles, even moreso when combined with all those fast-moving, passage-of-too-much-time-evoking images.

so basically, my young and impressionable mind was apparently scarred to the point of trying to repress that memory, and I guess it worked, because I eventually mostly forgot it, and then when I remembered it, I assumed it had all been a dream

and then like a year or two ago I saw a post about it online and it all came back and the sun is going to swallow up the earth and we’re all going to die

I hope you enjoyed hearing the story of the most traumatic event of my young life.
