"Tell him about the twinkie"
I just saw this story on the John Walsh Show about a girl who was homeless and still put herself through high school and Harvard.
I kick myself for not being determined. It all boils down to what you are going to do for yourself. It's all about taking the initiative. Just get it done.
I've been thinking lately about getting back together with my friend who plays bass and started working on some new stuff. It's too hard to work on your own. There's no drive, no one pushing my limits.
It's freakin' snowing outside today, which sucks (as if that was necessary for me to point out). Still, it actually looks like it's just spitting here and there, so that's definitely better. I'll probably go see Phone Booth tonight. It looks okay, I love Forest Whitaker. A prime example of someone who's just a good actor and who made it. He's not completely jacked and ripped or the best looking guy around, he's just real.
I love movies, but I'm usually more drawn to the older things. Today, Hollywood is such a joke. 'Chicago' is the best picture?? C'mon. That movie wreaked from day one that it's just a movie Hollywood makes to pat itself on the back. There's no point to it, the actors are so far overrated it's hilarious. Catherine Zeta Jones? She shouldn't call herself and actor. She's a telephone spokesmodel. We live in a time where all facets of entertainment shove sub-par products down our throats. We don't have to take it!
I'm a firm believer in the fact that if the entertainment industry offered higher quality bands and movies, people would still latch on. General public is not stupid (despite how often I think so ;) ), they can handle more intelligent music and movies. They are rebelling by downloading music, they know when a movie is just going to be a bomb (Pluto Nash????), and they don't go. They're starting to demand the industry wake up and realize we are no longer the mindless drones of days past. Entertainment costs so much, we're not going waste our money.
The music industry is so good at what it does, they can market anything. You could take the most odd band and make it become a hit. It's just a matter of slowly turning the public onto the fact they don't have to settle for manufactured pop music. I feel bad for pop sometimes, it should be better.
There, that's enough of a rant.
Oh yeah, on the John Walsh show, they made that girl's story into a movie staring Thora Birch, whom it's no secret I think is pretty attractive and talented. That was an added bonus.
