Coffee Break: Californication

Here's one of my favorite narrations from "Californication". While some folks would dismiss this show as just smut, I find that it has more heart in it than most others on television today.
(Supposedly written by David Duchovny's character Hank Moody for a blog he was "reduced" to writing.)

"Good Morning L.A.

In the land of the lotus eaters, time plays tricks on you. One day you are dreaming, the next your dream has become your reality.

It was the best of times, if only someone had told me.

Mistakes were made, hearts were broken, harsh lessons learned. My family goes on without me while I drown in a sea of pointless pussy.

I don’t know how I got here, but here I am -- rotting away in the California sun.

There are things I need to figure out -- for her sake at least.

The clock is ticking, the gap is widening. She won’t always love me, not matter what."
