Its is not often you find inspiration on a Monday.
But whilst listening to our local radio station this morning
they played a clip by astronaut Chris Hadfield singing in space,
David Bowie's Space Oddity.
Always a fantastic song anyway I thought I had better check out the clip.
It has been done really well
and the views of the earth are amazing.
And with such a brilliant and apt song it seems pure poetry.
Though am I the only person that gets a bit freaked out
by the thought of seeing the earth in space?
Though no doubt amazing it scares me.
Maybe that feeling of insignificance?
Mind you I have never flown in an aeroplane
before as they freak me out too!
Check out the clip though it might just make your
lunchtime or tea break that little bit special this Monday.
Another clip I have put on here today is a montage
from the film Seeking a friend at the end of the world.
I borrowed the DVD from my brother who basically
owns a shop in his bedroom! lol.
Though its better as its lending fee is zero.
I was a bit sceptical about this film and
wasn't sure about watching it.
I am so glad I did so its easily one of the best films I have seen recently.
(And we do like our movies here)
The scene below is nearing the end of the film
(and life as we know it)
and its the most moving and beautiful scene in a film I have seen in a long while.
The song is by the Hollies The air that I breathe
is just so moving (without being sickly I thought).
If you loved Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
and films that have a quiet depth to them
then I would highly recommend this film.
Its not a new one but its worth a watch.
I love Steve Carell and love most of his films,
Anchorman being the top one.
And I think he shines in this.
Keria Knightley though not being one of my favourite actressess
(too much pouting) is pretty brilliant in this film too.
Well I better go and do something useful now
instead of mucking about on here!
I might do something like this again if anyone is interested?
Its hard to know whether these things are worthwhile to do or not.
But felt I had to share these two clips at least!
Go check it out below.
Bye for now.
