Angel by Sarah McLachlan

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don’t make no difference
Escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Melancholy Note

Songs that serenade
to the melancholy note
which resonant within me.











Big Kahuna

The Big Kahuna

1999 movie adapted from the play Hospitality Suite featuring Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito and Peter Facinelli. It is a 90 minute film where most of the scenes are in a hotel room and the action consists of dialogues between the three actors.

I saw this movie for the first time the other day. My reaction after watching it was why haven’t I seen it before now and what a brilliant movie! I love long epic movies like Lord of the Rings and can enjoy a big budget film just for the effects, but many, many times movies fall short on the plot and dialogue. Since this movie was entirely dialogues and monologues, it required actors with skill who could express their character in full within a few conversations. There is quite a vast amount of topics that these characters touch upon: honesty, faithfulness, change, religion, life, death, conflict, regret, friendship.

There are so many quotes that I love. Here I chose one quote for each accompanying video.

They got a spotlight over the Jon. That and there’s mirrors on three sides so you can actually watch yourself wiping your own ass!

I’m talking about something bigger than God. At issue is what we are here to do, we’re here to sell lubricants, Bob. We‘re not here to save souls.

When you see the folly in something you’ve done. And you wish you had it to do over. But you know you can’t because it’s too late. So you pick that thing up and you carry it with you. To remind you that life goes on. The world will spin without you. You really don’t matter in the end. Then you will attain character because honesty will reach out from inside and tattoo itself all across your face.
