Music can change the world…

Life is too big to walk it alone. 



Kick-Ass is a 2010 superhero comedy film based on the comic book of the same name. 

The film tells the story of an ordinary teenager, Dave Lizewski, who sets out to become a real-life superhero, calling himself “Kick-Ass”. Dave gets caught up in a bigger fight when he meets Big Daddy, a former cop who, in his quest to bring down the drug lord Frank D’Amico, has trained his eleven-year-old daughter to be the ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl.

Despite having generated some controversy for its profanity, violence performed by super-heroes and a child, and black humor, Kick-Ass has received mostly positive reviews.


In the Mood for Love (2000)

I’m in the mood for love 

simply because you’re near me

Funny but when you’re near me,

I’m in the mood for love.

Heaven is in your eyes, bright as the stars we’re under,


Oh, is it any wonder, I’m in the mood for love.


Why stop to think of whether this little dream might fade,


We´ve put our hearts together - now we are one, I’m not afraid.


If there’s a cloud above, if it should rain, we’ll let it.


But for tonight forget it, I’m in the mood for love.

Frida Kahlo de Rivera  

(July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) was a Mexican painter, born in Coyacan,and perhaps best known for her self-portraits.

Mexican culture and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as Naïve art or folk art. Her work has also been described as “surrealist”.

Kahlo once said, “I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.” Of her 143 paintings, 55 are self-portraits which often incorporate symbolic portrayals of physical and psychological wounds. She insisted, “I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.”


Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story

Release Date: Nov 03, 2011

Genre: Documentary

Cast: Jay DeMerit

Director: Nick Lewis, Ranko Tutugdzija

When Jay DeMerit stepped onto the field to represent the United States at the 2010 World Cup it was truly an incredible moment. Jay had literally come from nowhere just years prior to being on the world’s greatest stage.

This story may be about Jay but it is really about having a goal and never giving up. It is a film that anyone with a dream should watch.

Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story is the true story of a young American’s impossible journey - a journey never experienced or heard of in the soccer world. After college, Jay’s dream of playing pro soccer in Europe seemed unreachable. Sleeping in an attic, painting houses and eating beans and toast to survive, Jay took the most unlikely route to the top. After not making the professional leagues in the U.S., Jay left for Europe at the age of 21 without any professional experience - only a passport, $1500 and a backpack full of dreams.  The film documents Jay’s journey from the bottom – playing in Sunday park leagues and lower level division London clubs earning 40 pounds a week — to playing in the English Premier League — to starting in the 2010 World Cup. The Jay DeMerit Story is a story of perseverance, hard work and relentless belief in a dream…

Big city story. From the town of love. Love can be in faraway places. Also can arrive everlasting.



 

《Eat Pray Love》

Liz, listen to Ketut. Sometimes to lose balance for love is part of living balanced life.

In the end, I’ve come to believe in something I call “The Physics of the Quest.” A force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of Quest Physics goes something like this: If you’re brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you.

I can’t help but believe it, given my experience.
