This phrase appears in the movie Slacker
, during the scene in Captain Quakenbush
's (the cafe) when the 4 young guys are sitting around the table being pseudo-intellectual
. I've always liked the phrase, and I think it sums up the idea of the film perfectly.
It's the title of my contribution to the Weekend Sound Track
11 am Sunday: The Obsessiveness of the Utterly Passive
To get up, or stayed sprawled in bed? Or even to go back to sleep? The email's been checked with the laptop, the cup of tea's finished. The lover left hours ago to go to the Zen
Center. Should I get up to meet the day? A Cheese Danish
and a double tall latte
are calling from the coffee shop down the street, but maybe i'll just lay here a little longer....
