everybody’s free to wear sunscreen

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

baz luhrmann, you make a lot of sense. 

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
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 have 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’re 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
.

Don’t Look Back
Telepopmusik
Sit Still / And close your eyes / What’s behind the other door / Oh, no more silence / Don’t kill this thing we got called love / Just searching for the perfect drug

When love comes calling / Don’t look back / When love comes calling / Don’t look away

And I’m standing over here / Watching you over there / Smiling, happy, unaware / Oh, life is spinning round / You’re going underground / Forgetting who we were / Let’s try and keep it / Just one more day

When love comes calling / Don’t look back / When love comes calling / Don’t look away

You take your love / And throw it all around / Like it’s nothing special / Just a sound

Let me say one more thing / I don’t think you realize / That a day is like a year sometimes

When love comes calling / Don’t look back / When love comes calling / Don’t look away
