@ussoccer_wnt: Guess who’s wearing the armband tonight? In the voice of Ron Burgundy: “Our captain is a classy lady.” http://t.co/8req0fHuwS

I
 think 
the
 statement
 Pippin
 is
 making 
is
 inherently
 a
 very
 simple
 one: 
If
 you 
keep 
running 
around 
looking
 for
 perfection 
in 
life
 and
 letting
 outside 
forces 
influence
 your
 goals
 and
 choices,
 instead 
of 
picking 
something 
you
 care 
about 
and
 sticking
 with
 it without
 illusions
 or 
romanticization,
 you 
will
 eventually 
’burn yourself
 out’
 and 
destroy
 yourself. 
It
 doesn’t
 literally 
have
 to 
be
 suicide;
 it
 can 
be 
the
 kind 
of
 substance 
dependency
 that
 has 
destroyed
 people
 like
 Robert
 Downey, 
Jr.,
 for
 instance.


I
 think 
the 
way 
to 
think 
about 
the
 Players 
is
 to 
realize
 that 
they are
 actually
 in
 Pippin’s 
head,
 just
 as 
we 
all 
have 
those 
internalized
 voices 
that
 tell
 us
 we’re
 not
 good 
enough,
 rich
 enough,
 beautiful
 enough,
 etc., 
and 
that 
we 
have 
to 
make
 our
 goals 
conform 
to 
the 
shallow 
and
 misplaced 
goals 
we
 see
 touted
 by 
the
 media
 and
 our
 so‐called 
societal
 leaders.
 The
 Players 
are 
not
 so
 much
 malevolent
 as
 they
 are
 eternally
 cynical 
and 
dissatisfied,
 because
 nothing 
in
 real 
life 
can
 be
 glamorous
 enough 
or
 spectacular 
enough
 to
 achieve 
the 
sort
 of 
romanticized
 perfection 
we 
carry in 
the
 movie
 in 
our
 heads.
