I wrote this the other day as a response for my nutrition class re: labels and food tracking. A lot of my classmates thought it was pretty damn funny, so I thought I’d throw it out there. I’m stuck in editing/finishing hell with two other actual “content” posts that I’d like to get out of soon and get posted. I need to get over myself and just call them “finished.”

Reading this chapter reminded why I quit tracking my food and reading labels (8 or 10 times over).  It’s too depressing and…

I found this randomly on Vuze, downloaded it and forgot about it.  I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a “short film” because it lacks a plot or even a hook of a plot.  And yet… it stands strongly on its own as “proof of concept” and yes, that is Cillian Murphy.

You Are Everything

I haven’t even thought of this song in 15+ years, but it’s with me tonight and unshakeable.

REM – You Are Everything

Sometimes I feel like I can’t even sing (say, say, the light)
I’m very scared for this world
I’m very scared for me (say, say, the light)
Eviscerate your memory
Here’s a scene
You’re in the back seat laying down (say, say, the light)
The windows wrap around
To sound of the travel and the engine (say, say, the light)
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn’t end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The stars are the greatest thing you’ve ever seen
And they’re there for you
For you alone you are the everything
I think about this world a lot and I cry (say, say, the light)
And I’ve seen the films and the eyes
But I’m in this kitchen (say, say, the light)
Everything is beautiful
And she is so beautiful (say, say, the light)
She is so young and old
I look at her and I see the beauty (say, say, the light)
Of the light of music
The voices talking somewhere in the house
Late spring and you’re drifting off to sleep
With your teeth in your mouth
You are here with me
You are here with me
You have been here and you are everything
Sometimes I feel like I can’t even sing (say, say, the light)
I’m very scared for this world
I’m very scared for me (say, say, the light)
Eviscerate your memory
Here’s a scene
You’re in the back seat laying down (say, say, the light)
The windows wrap around
To sound of the travel and the engine (say, say, the light)
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn’t end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The greatest thing you’ve ever seen
And they’re there for you
For you alone you are the everything
For you alone you are the everything
