Ever Seen

I just re-read my last post and decided that it's one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.

"one of the best Westerns I've ever seen"

"best 'costume drama' I've ever seen"

"effective uses of pop music in any film I've ever seen"

I now promise to eliminate the words "I've ever seen" from my vocabulary.  If I write these words again, shoot me.

Maybe it's more the ranking of it being better. Kinda doesn't work with art because it's so part of it's time and place and mental state of the one experiencing it. By "ever seen" you revere to all the other stuff like it that is out there. Maybe you have seen way better but just didn't pay attention at the time. Maybe it's so good because it just answers to the question of the day. Maybe it might just be the best thing you ever will see and you will long for a repeat of that moment for the rest of your days but will never find it. That would suck... wouldn't it? So let it never be the best thing you ever see but see it nonetheless.
