Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

 

Wear Sunscreen

If I could offer you only one tip for the future,
sunscreen would be it.
The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists,
whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience
I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth, oh nevermind,
you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they’ve faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself
and recall in a way you can’t grasp now, how much possibility lay before you
and how fabulous you really looked,
you are not as fat as you imagine.

Don’t worry about the future, or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you

Sing

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts,
don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Floss

Don’t waste your time on jealousy, sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind,
the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults,
if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life,
the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22
what they wanted to do with their lives,
some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t,
Maybe you’ll divorce at 40,
Maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary
What ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either
Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.
Enjoy your body, use it every way you can, don’t be afraid of it,
or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own

Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

Do not read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Brother and sister together we’ll make it through
Someday a spirit will take you and guide you there
I know you’ve been hurtin, but I’ve been waitin’ to be there for you
And I’ll be there just helping you out whenever I can

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings, they are the best link to your past
and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get,
the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard,
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander,
you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young
prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
Maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it.
Advice is a form of nostalgia,
dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off,
painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen

Brother and sister together we’ll make it through
Someday a spirit will take you and guide you there
I know you’ve been hurtin, but I’ve been waitin’ to be there for you
And I’ll be there just helping you out whenever I can
Everybody’s free oh yeah
Everybody’s free oh yeah

 

On how today is one of those days where one would like to dance barefoot and then fall off..

And smile.. honestly. It happens some days you wake up and the sun looks brighter, the waking up and going to work ain’t as dramatic.. breakfasts tastes amazing (even if is the same ol’ toast and coffee)…

Then you go out on your way and look at people (coz there’s not much to do) , notice how one girl puts her make up in the bus even if she doesn’t needs it.. see a guy trying to keep his head balanced when sleeping ,while an older lady complains in her mind about the boy with all the tattoos..

Then you smile and some people smile back others just think you might be flirting.. but it’s just a peaceful smile thinking ain’t this a pretty day?

Then all of a sudden in the desk , oh so many things to do, but well you think of those who don’t have anything, all the complains about typing 100000 mails go away when you think of those who have no fingers..

…Putting on some music the melody just takes you places..

Am happy today :)

On Waking up early and having no love to get up when there is a moon still in the sky

Every day is the same routine of getting up, go to work/study, same same thing, then there’s certain people I  that are used to getting up at 4am and cooking breakfast and stretching and watching the sun come out at 5am.

How can I learn that? I’ve been waking up at 4am , 6 days of the week for a year and I’m still not getting the hold of it.. my brain is very plain I guess.. sees it all dark says “Go back to bed woman”.

Which implies I got no clock inside myself that makes me wake up at the righ time, I try and end up waking at 2am, 3am anytime but the right time, I trust one dodgy alarm clock powered by a single AA battery more than myself. 

The day lasts longer ,certainly does but also your sleepiness (or mine) lasts longer, by the time is like 2 pm I feel like I have a bowling ball for a head balancing on a needle(wich would be my neck… not that I have an unreal skinny neck) THE POINT IS .. I happen to have lapses when I think I wont make it..

It’s been a year.. and I’m still the same.. waking at 8 am is such a pleasure on Sundays..

To finish I would like to say I really envy the people who don’t live out of 5 or 4 hours of sleep as I do! :D

Adios!

Why am I an antisocial?

Every single day I have to catch certain buses, thing is every time I get on.. the same people is there.. not a problem..

I am reading my book.. in peace when I hear certain conversations which I cant help to listen to since the level of the voice is very high…

So I hear these people talking about a poor guy that works with them .. imitating his voice, cracking up saying he looks like some dog..trying to agree on a nickname..

When I look back.. I see these people are around 30 yrs of age..having a blast talking about this other person..

I don’t know what level of weird I am .. or what level of normality do I have..

But honestly when I sit in a cafe and I have a coffee and look outside, I find some people really dull..

Respect.. its basic for everything, for working for other people in general we should have respect for everyone their looks,decisions all..

I honestly get so disappointed..

as Nietzsche wrote once ” ..at one time we were monkeys and still men are more of a monkey than any monkey…” (Thus Spoke Zarathustra)

I don’t understand people and people don’t understand me…

I don’t find a guy screaming at the street some comment about boobs.. flattering.. (some actually do)

I don’t find a racist joke funny..

I think everyone has a space, and that space should be respected..

As soon as a person makes a change whether in the way he/she thinks… lives its life.. or a physical change..

that person gets pointed at .. talked about made fun off..

I find it so unnecessary ..

and this would be me rambling, about a topic some people agree with ..

I think we should try to learn more, read more,  talk more, but do all this.. to make us a better person…

Sadly right now everywhere I look I find people that’s not interested in nothing but ¨have a good time¨.. when for them a good time is get waisted…have random sex.. and all this that are just plain not fulfilling for me in any way..

So then I think .. yes I don’t want to meet anyone, yes I try to read people before giving them any sort of trust…I’m protective with my few good friends..

I enjoy sitting on a table and speak of literature, speak of psychology.. drink coffee until a caffeine rush comes haha!

I’m happy in my own little circle , in my own corner of earth..

and I’m an antisocial because I really don’t want to mess with the rest..

I rather see them be happy because someone is ugly, or because their buttt look good in some jeans..because someone they didn’t like got fired..

These sort of happiness.. i will never understand..

” Pouring Water” – Second Silver Piece Completed!

So sorry for not updating on this all of a sudden I said man I’m meant to take pictures of the process.. but I either work on it or take pictures I’ll do my best for the next one..

I added the handles as you can see here…

and the chain It took so so long you wouldn’t believe I had to make a small circle the chains would rest inside then I had to solder a tiny loop on the end of each chain then , pass a silver wire with all the chains inside it and solder from outside.. I don’t have a clue if I’m making sense.. Here you can sort of see the chain detail..the idea is for the chains  to have movement…It looks so pretty when you walk..

I Oxidized part-of the pot trying to give it a shadow , my teacher told me to use a scotch Britte to do this.. and well It was really simple and I honestly love the dark areas makes the piece somehow more interesting.. looking older..more elegant who knows well here it is..
