Life is So Peculiar…

This is one of my absolute favorite songs…not sure why but it always helps me focus (which can be tricky sometimes) when I’m working on a project or just need to get down to business. I love how simple and true it is.

As with most music, I stumbled across it though watching a good movie–but this movie isn’t just good, it’s soooo classically good and a timeless love story…

LOVE AFFAIR (1994)

My Sweetheart… <3 "The Lumineers Ho Hey"

I’m in ❤ with this song and video…Silver LInings Playbook pulls at your heart, if you haven’t seen it, it’s one flick worth checking out. : )

42 The True Story of an American Legend – Jackie Robinson

“Maybe tomorrow we’ll all wear ‘42’—that way they won’t tell us apart.”…<3

-Pee Wee Reese

Here’s one of many great scenes in this film. : ) This must see movie is full of passion and inspiration. It really hit home for me just how incredible Mr. Jackie Robinson was and remains today. Also, I just learned that April 15th is the day that all major league baseball players wear the number ‘42’ to commemorate Jackie Robinson’s first game played in Major League Baseball.

Here’s a great background clip to check out about the Dodgers and Robinson’s legacy

The “Same…Changes”… by The Weepies

So…

I’m totally obsessed with motion picture soundtracks and probably will be for a long time.

There are quite a few songs that I like from the film “Morning Glory,” sort of the ultimate modern Romantic Comedy with none other than the lovely Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton, and Harrison Ford.

But…I’m only going to share one song as I was reminded of how sweet this particular tune is when I ran across these videos…

One dynamic that pulls at my heart in any movie is the non-verbal expression. Sometimes…words just aren’t necessary to say what we mean…

Here’s the exchange that I liked, and you can tell someone else did too… : )

Scene: Rachel McAdams falling in love…

And finally, one last version…following the film’s story line…

Every once in a while amid all the randomness…

Every once in a while amid all the randomness...

From the movie, “The Switch,” a film that didn’t necessarily receive a lot of attention but stuck with me…

Here’s the line that resonated for me…

“Every once in a while amid all the randomness something unexpected happens and it pushes us all forward…And the truth is, what I’m starting to think…what I’m starting to feel…is that maybe, the human race…isn’t a race at all.”

-The Switch (2010)

 

 

P.s. Love Jason Bateman’s smile… : )

If you your not living on the edge…

This quote was shared with me by a really good college buddy…

“If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space.”

I thought of this quote this morning maybe because I’m in the middle of making a decision. Anyhow, I couldn’t quite remember how it went so first remembered it as….

“If you’re not having fun, you’re taking up too much space.”

And that’s when I thought of this clip… : )
