The background of this movie in mind-blowing. I love Richard Linklater’s films and am excited for this one. And I’m also grateful nobody filmed me during puberty. I was little shit.
The VICE Guide to Self-Esteem
Self-esteem: Everyone wants it. Industries are built around getting it and keeping it. Wars are started by people who don’t have it (or have too much of it). The secret to having self-esteem is realizing that you are already perfect. Let us show you just how incredible, special, unique, cool, intelligent, and super fucking fuckable you actually are.
No harm can come to you if you are awesome. Fortunately, you are awesome. If you’re not awesome, convince yourself that you are. Once you do, people will cling to you like moths to an awesome flame. You are that flame. Burn baby, burn.
Honorable Mentions: Abortions, America, affirmations
Getting drunk is a foolproof confidence booster. It’s called “liquid courage” for a reason. Getting drunk inside a bar, surrounded by other false-confident boozers, means you’ll get talked to, hit on, and treated like royalty. You’ll feel better about yourself without actually doing anything to make you a better person, which is faster and easier than attempting to get to the root of your problems via tedious introspection.
Honorable Mentions: Birthdays, better than (as in, you’re better than everyone else), break up with your partner
Crying is usually a sign that you’ve felt something that made you feel bad. Maybe your dad skipped your dance recital. Maybe your dad showed up to your dance recital drunk. Find the nearest friend, relative, lover, or complete stranger and cry in front of them. Chances are, they will want you to stop crying so much that they’ll comfort you with a hug or some words of wisdom. Since it feels so good to be comforted, some people will actually pretend to cry just to get sympathy. We like to call these people “power users” in the MMORPG known as life.
Honorable Mentions: Charlie Sheen (king of self-esteem) Confidence, cumming hard (cumsplosion)
If self-esteem is what you seek, delusion is your best friend. There’s no such thing as failure when you’re delusional. When people are saying you can’t do something, mentally flip them off and convince yourself you can. You are the greatest—with or without actual talent.
Honorable Mentions: Dancing like no one is watching, dogs (who love you unconditionally), Donald Trump (the king of delusion)

Blood Orange - “You’re Not Good Enough”
Gia Coppola directs a dance video inspired by daytime television performances in which Dev Hynes brings his singular moves to the masses.

This is the second single from Cupid Deluxe, Blood Orange’s sophomore LP, released last November.
