    Default This Is The Closest To Being My Autobiography That You Will Ever See

    Read it now just in case Photobucket deletes it!!!!!!!!!

    *Disclaimer: I did not write or draw this story. The main character (Robert) isn't me, he doesn't LOOK like me at all (I look more like his philosophizing brother Charles, but I felt as if I looked like Robert). They are both about 20 years older than me. But in many ways I identify with both of their lives, perhaps because Robert (the artist) is a type 4 and Charles (the philosopher) is a type 5.

    For those who will want to know what this is for, it's purpose is to reveal typological destiny.


    I did do some walking of the streets and mulling over my destiny as an older teen:



    The angst of the lonely, depressed teenage male:



    The panel below represents how I felt as a teenager. I didn't walk around all clenched up like that, but I don't suppose Robert did either.



    I didn't share a bedroom, and my father wasn't a tough marine...



    Although I didn't have an older brother to pal around with (I had an older brother but not the type to pal around with), Charles in this panel could easily represent one of my friends at the time. We were kind of philosophical together like this...



    I often felt like a throwback to an earlier, simpler and even naive era, pre-1960s.



    My view of females at that time - psychologically aloof, present and yet far away at the same time...



    The next 2.5 panels remind me of how frightening and 'far away' females were to me at the time...




    This frame came out smaller than the others...



    Interesting lucid dream. I still have them...



    ...I memorized some Shakespeare and other literature... But I didn't have to get drunk to recite it, and when I did get drunk I certainly didn't drink that disgusting wine




    Notice how Fe-inferior INTP Charles is in this frame:




    I attended some church with a friend. It wasn't a holy roller church like this one was, but I felt just as out of place as they do...




    "Hopelessly repressed," haha...



    1950s Grandmother reminds me of my mother-in-law today...






    ...I identify with the memory of writhing, reeking cigarette smoke. It was always everywhere. Robert and I share the virtuous quality of being non-smokers for life.



    My parents weren't like this at all. Living at home really sucked... but yeah, this is definitely crazier than anything I went through...



    Thank God our holidays weren't horrific like his were...




    I had a lot of these moments. And I know certain members of this forum would enjoy goading me into it...


    Robert got out on his own a year out of high school. It took me a couple years longer. But I feel more like his brother Charles, the E5 philosophizer whose life never really began, and who committed suicide at the age of 50. I actually got my act together, but it sounds like Charles never did. (Edit - Charles was probably a schizophrenic, unlike me.)

    Notice in this frame how different this new friend is from Charles, typologically speaking...




    I still don't feel like I fit in anywhere. But I survived!

    It's like you're a figment of someone else's imagination.

    As I'm sure you're aware, the comic that you posted is an autobiographical piece by Robert Crumb. You may also be aware: The documentary film "Crumb" is about Robert Crumb as of the year 1994. If you identify with Robert's life story and work but haven't seen the documentary yet, I'm sure you'll find the film a great way to learn a whole lot more about the guy. You can order the film through Netflix.

    In addition to the two hours of interviews with Robert Crumb himself, the film also includes maybe 30 minutes of live interviews with his brother Charles, as well as shorter interviews with another brother Max. His mother also appears on camera at a couple points. (His father died before the documentery was made, and Charles was later to commit suicide a year after the film was released.)

    The documentary is wide-ranging, with interviews of Robert's old girlfriends and past and current wives. Co-workers give their impressions of him. Also, there are segments discussing misogyny, violent sexuality, and racism in Robert Crumb's comics: Is it art? Satire? Pornography? What is the role of great art: to elevate and teach, or to be iconoclastic, delve into the id, and tear down the facades of bourgeois conventionality?

    From Wikipedia:
    "Crumb" is a 1994 documentary film about the noted underground cartoonist Robert Crumb (R. Crumb) and his family. Directed by Terry Zwigoff and produced by Lynn O'Donnell, it won widespread acclaim. It was released in the USA on April 28, 1995, having been screened at film festivals the previous year. Jeffery M. Anderson (later critic for the San Francisco Examiner) placed the film on his list of the ten greatest films of all time, labeling it "the greatest documentary ever made."

    [...]

    "Crumb" was met with wide acclaim from critics, earning a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The late critic Gene Siskel rated "Crumb" as the best film of the year. Roger Ebert gave the film four (of four) stars, writing that "'Crumb' is a film that gives new meaning to the notion of art as therapy." In The Washington Post, Desson Howe's review was similarly positive. The San Francisco Chronicle rated the film as "wild applause", as critic Edward Guthmann called the film "one of the most provocative, haunting documentaries of the last decade." [...]
