Away We Go (2009)
Probably nothing really that special about it, other than capturing that exact mood and emotion of being uncertain about life in general, which is my type of movie. I’d quote this William Goss dude from Rotten Tomatoes for the perfect description, ”Nails the melancholy state of being both unsure about living in this world and essentially hopeful about it.”
It’s easily one of my all-time favorites, along with the other mid-life crisis themed ones that I like. It has a nice soundtrack too.
Just finished this book by Ron Currie Jr, Everything Matters!. Good thing it has an interesting cover or else I never would’ve noticed this book, because I’ve never heard of the author himself. I guess judge a book by its cover can be a pretty effective saying too. It’s great; truly deserves that exclamation point in its title.
“Everything ends, and Everything matters.
Everything matters not in spite of the end of you and all that you love, but because of it. Everything is all you’ve got—your wife’s lips, your daughter’s eyes, your brother’s heart, your father’s bones and your own grief—and after Everything is nothing. So you were wise to welcome Everything, the good and the bad alike, and cling to it all. Gather it in. Seek the meaning in sorrow and don’t ever ever turn away, not once, from here until the end. Because it is all the same, it is all unfathomable, and it is all infinitely preferable to the one dreadful alternative.”
Watched Up Dharma Down last weekend @ Capone’s (my first time in A-Venue!). We were waiting for an encore but it didn’t happen; hence the first photo without Armi. They played a different version of The World is Our Playground… and (was it just me) Hiwaga (but not the Mayohan version). I’m still waiting to hear Blessed, though I don’t think they’re still playing it.
Hidden Nikki was the only front act. Huhuhu haven’t seen Musical O and Encounters With a Yeti for a while now. I miss jam-packed Terno Nights!
Yay just finished watching The Breakfast Club!
