I Feel So – Box Car Racer

BOX CAR RACER
I Feel So
Box Car Racer – 2002

Song Lyrics

Sometimes
I wish I was brave
I wish I was stronger
I wish I could feel no pain
I wish I was young
I wish I would try
I wish I was honest
I wish I was you not I

’cause
I feel so mad
I feel so angry
I feel so callous
So lost, confused again
I feel so cheap
So used, unfaithful
Let’s start over
Let’s start over

Sometimes
I wish I was smart
I wish I made cures for
How people are
I wish I had power
I wish I could leave
I wish I could change the world
For you and me

’cause
I feel so mad
I feel so angry
I feel so callous
So lost, confused again
I feel so cheap
So used, unfaithful
Let’s start over
Let’s start over

’cause
I feel so mad
I feel so angry
I feel so callous
So lost, confused again
I feel so cheap
So used, unfaithful
Let’s start over
Let’s start over

I feel so mad
I feel so angry
I feel so callous
So lost, confused again
I feel so cheap
So used, unfaithful
Let’s start over
Let’s start over

Go Sling Racer Go

AV Club: He’s simply called “Driver.” Do you feel he has any identity outside of driving?

Ryan Gosling: No, I don’t. I think he’s somebody who’s seen too many movies. He’s confusing his life for a film, and he’s made himself the hero of his own action film. He’s just kind of lost in the mythology of Hollywood.



This movie would be PERFECT if it were only set in a purely synthesized hyperreal universe and the protagonist suffered an existential crisis. And instead of being “Driver” he was called “Speed Racer.”

Speed Racer Influences: Andreas Gursky

Today I came across one of my favorite photographs, 99 Cent by Andreas Gursky.

It occurred to me how much this resembled the entire tone of Speed Racer, so I dug deeper into Gursky’s portfolio. His Chicago Board of Trade photograph completely resembles the crowd shots during the first race.

From Speed Racer…

Here’s another Gursky

Even his abstract work was paid homage in Speed Racer. His work “Bahrain”…

Also this neo-industrial photo is very similar…

…to the city-shot when the Racer family visit Royalton’s factory.

And the transponder scene from Speed Racer…

…is clearly a hybrid of these two Gursky gems

Wow I just totally gave an art lesson.

I had this translated from some blog…

“His photographs, large format and rich in color and detail, often represent more human interchange linked to late-capitalist society, public spaces like airports, stations, clubs, stock exchanges, parliaments, factories, offices, hotels, supermarkets, or pools, as well as places where the human footprint is only anecdotal.”
