    It's because the story doesn't start until minute 5:00. It's so good...i've watched it 3 times now.

    you're right. He faked indifference and stoicism. She's gonna die, right. Anyway I think that's kind of Si ...the way he relives what she said all over again on his own.

    She reminds me of every woman I never want to be anywhere within 50 light years of, but I'm glad it worked out for them at least.

    If you've driven a car with this type of ESI in the passenger seat, the effect is quite unmistakable.

    Great video.

    Nah, the message that he found her nagging annoying but missed / needed it as she was gone was fairly obvious. It's sweet and touching, but I'd still lose my sanity around that much piercing nagging and control-freakery.

    It was sweet.

    I still listen to the last message my ex-boyfriend left me on my answering machine before he died last year. I won't let anyone erase it. I smile every time I hear it because it was one of the rare moments he acted really silly. I must have been sleeping when he left it since I never picked up during it. I feel very close to him when I listen to it but I don't listen obsessively anymore. I just do it when I want to smile and feel him around me for a moment.

    For me his last voicemail was one, of several, artifacts he left for me to remember him by.

    I feel nothing watching that video. Mea culpa. Did he leave her there to die? Interesting representation of a guy suppressing feelings and anxiety. Otherwise I only read the video as him not being very adaptive to the (technologically) new and preferring to hear her nagging on and on, even if he detested it (Si). But ofc maybe it's all super-cynical and the guy prefers her recorded voice to her being there in flesh-and-blood ..so insufferable she is.

    Default dust in my eyes, I swear

    Ti-LII 5w6 for the guy, ESE 2w1 for the girl.

     
    Heartbroken at 5:47, good god. Her eyes are black on the inside and she looks lifeless and defeated. The guy hasn't shaved. A GPS will have to take over and pick up where she left off, as best it can. 8:24 is where it's obvious that it can't. All of the joy, the mentions of the world around them both, the intermittent rattling of the maps, the warnings not to hit potholes; all of the humanity was lost with the GPS, what good would it do to turn right? 9:43 is where he finds what he was missing, finally relaxing into the car seat. By 10:00, he did his best to keep alive what was left from her, and her gift of the GPS was finally vindicated, something which was not just her gift, but their creation, due to his programming efforts and her voice, filling what was once lost as best they could.

    I want to appreciate what's alive, and this is another reminder that the messiness of humanity is inherently valuable like nothing else in the universe, probably what was alluded to when the guy mentioned something about "all of this money, and for nothing".

    OK here is my commentary. Sorry a bit long.

    From the outset, what you see is the wife "being annoying" giving a ton of comments, being sort of a “backseat driver” but also commenting on amazing things she sees (stork’s nest), pointing them out to the husband. The husband, a taciturn man, a bit annoyed, kind of snaps at her. But this is brief, and almost immediately (at 1:04) he shows concern for his wife’s affairs (“did you remember your social security card?”), and she sort of snaps back at him a bit (“I’m in the database anyway”), but he’s like “still, better to have it with you”. An old married couple bickering, maybe, but they care about each other (not so obvious in regards to her until later, at least the first time I watched it). The effect though is for the audience to feel her as annoying. It's intentional.

    At 1:18, she comments that she cant remember her doctor’s name after 20 years of going to him, and so fortunate they haven’t needed to see him very often. (I think this is a first clue to her illness, which I didn’t catch the first couple times)

    When the scene changes at ~1:35, they are wearing different clothing. Her face looks a bit more ragged, a bit more serious/forlorn/tense. She’s a backseat driver again, worse than ever. He gets so annoyed that he says he’ll have to record her sometime so she can hear how annoying her nonstop commentary is. This time, she doesn’t really comment on glorious things anymore, though. She comments on girls dressing too lightly (revealing), and scolds them (to her husband) because they’ll catch cold and wont be able to have babies (lol). (She’s concerned about health. Perhaps something going on with hers? She’s probably been diagnosed already.) She’s going to another doctor’s appointment. They both snap at each other, but notice, they actually help each other out – she with the map/directions, he with folding the map when she is trying to get out. I think they both were in a crappy mood there, because of her new diagnosis; that stress came through as their particular annoyance with each other that day.

    Scene change at 3:48. Wearing different clothes, he’s in a T-shirt, it’s Spring or Summer. (he was in a turtleneck last two scenes). She starts up again with the back seat driving. He makes good on his vow, and without a word, whips out the voice recorder (lol). At first, she sort of catches herself and is sort of hesitant to speak, but her nature takes over and she just cant help it…. (you can kind of see that both of them are trying hard to keep from busting out laughing!). Then, at 5:07 we find out why, just WHY she does that back seat driving. (that was such a sweet moment for me! My first runthrough, that’s when I did a double take and realized what was really going on underneath the bickering ). All of her backseat driving is aimed at keeping him from getting into situations that will stress him out. And that, to her, takes precedence over proving something to the voice recorder . And I think deep down he knows it too, they both know that they look out for each other.

    ~5:27 is where if you didn’t catch it sooner (I didn’t the first time), you can see she’s sick – she looks more haggard, she has a permanent IV in her hand, and they’re driving to some hospital in the middle of nowhere for treatment. She sounds more nervous, talking nonstop, he’s just not saying anything.

    The next couple scenes, she’s wearing a scarf, she looks progressively sicker, and the talking balance shifts gradually… she becomes too weak to talk, to where she is basically barely able to stay awake (6:00), and he takes over doing pretty much talking nonstop and even annoying her with the talking. She’s breathing shallowly, there’s gurgling noises. At this point it’s obvious she has cancer, is going through chemo, has complications, she’s in a wheelchair already. She knows she doesn’t have long (she gives him that “look” in the car, like that might be the last time she sees him, and worried how is he going to be all by himself).

    She got him an early birthday present (because she may not make it til then). The birthday present is again, out of her concern for him -- him getting lost without her, seeing as she’s always handling the map, etc. And she’s SO EXCITED about him having this gift!! (that was so moving, so overwhelming to me!). He shows some annoyance with the gift – it may superficially seem like he’s grumbling about the money she spent, but he’s not. The way I saw it, he’s trying to be in denial about how little time she has left. He doesn’t want to think about her dying (that’s basically what the gift is saying, loud and clear!). It’s so obvious how much they love each other under the curt jabs (which they are still doing even then!). IDK where they were going… nursing home maybe? Hospice? Not clear.

    At 8:29 - Some unspecified amount of time later – autumn – we can see she has already passed. He’s finally put up the GPS for the first time (probably didn’t do it right away, I’m sure), missing her, and probably hoping that it would bring her closer to him, but it doesn’t… It makes things worse… it makes her absence even more painful because that GPS is nothing like her. Her directions were filled with love; not the same with the GPS.

    While throwing the GPS into the glove compartment, he accidentally encounters that voice recorder! Sounds like they recorded more than just that one car trip, too. And thus, the voice recorder which originated in his moment of irritation, becomes a source of comfort for him -- it’s his wife speaking to him, her presence! And I think …did he actually have the GPS programmed with her voice/style?? (and additional commentary – “Look! A rainbow!!”) lol that was so adorable.

    I guess it's cool that you can listen to it without missing him. I'd feel existentially crushed every time I heard the person's voice, knowing I'd never get to have new experiences with them again.

    I like how the GPS allowed him to free his mind to listen to her.

    Very interesting to read Woof's and Suz's commentary. You both seem to pick up on very objectively observable type things whereas I just got the overall essence of what was happening and how things were progressing. I immediately tuned out the externals factors which did not strike me as relevant for some reason but I sort of knew the story would have a sad ending based on the tone of the video, right from the start. Once you guys pointed them out I can go back and see it too. In getting the essence of the situation it was like I got a feeling of what their lives had been together. That is where I took it into the realm of imagination and I gave them a happy story in my mind and an eternal bond.

    It's kind of funny because I do consider myself a very observant person but in a different way than you guys are. My observations are obviously more subjective.

    I got bored too watching it, I only saw about the first half. Woman- ESE- reminds me alot of my grandma with the same mannerisms and all. The kind of ESE I wouldn't want as my dual.
    The man was harder to get a good read on. I initially thought maybe LSI or SLI.

    She seems textbook Alpha SF (possibly Fe base, since she talks lots and she´s quite expressive).

    Not Beta .. she´ softish and earthy.

    The man could also be LSI-Ti (E1 sx last or smth lol .. I mean, he ain´t super-aggressive, but still anal enough, as rainer maria rilke would say).Ti stiffness and behavior anyway. Very linear and "J"-ish.
