Don't Mess With Self.

Joaquin Phoenix's "I'm Still Here" is a cautionary tale about the dangerous malleability of identity. When someone is aware of being watched/filmed the boundary between honesty and performance becomes blurred. There lies madness.

So ignore the surveillance cameras at the corner store. CCTV cameras and satellites could be recording almost anything. Once you are aware that They are watching you it's a slippery slope to self parody and over-calculated reinvention. Remain willfully ignorant of all-of-life-is-a-stageyness.

Dance in the elevator, but don't dance in the elevator.
