It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.

People tend to say the same two things about Dorothy Dandridge (“She was so beautiful!” “Her life was so tragic!”) Well, she was definitely beautiful (by most counts on the inside and out) and she did endure tough challenges in her life, but she was also a relentless hard worker. When she was not rehearsing for one of her nightclub performances, she was studying acting and dance and constantly working to create more opportunities for herself in Hollywood. At one point in the 1950s, she teamed up with Nat “King” Cole to pitch a television series where they would play a married couple (“small time” entertainers trying to catch a break in show business). It is our loss that they were turned down all over town (can you imagine watching clips of that today?!) In this photo, Ms. Dandridge is rehearsing with the great composer, arranger and vocal coach Phil Moore in March 1951. Mr. Moore also coached, arranged and/or wrote songs for Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Pearl Bailey, Ava Gardner, Diahann Carroll, Johnny Mathis and The Supremes.
Bossa Nova influence & spanish guitar? I mean!
I sit through Cam’s painful scenes for this entire score. Perfection, Zimmer.
O B S E S S I O N . #again #andagain
How I feel on every payday-eve (and day-after-payday, when I’m paying my bills). :/
Relax, it’s only Wednesday.
I used to call people, then I got into e-mailing, then texting, and now I just ignore everyone.

(Something about this sounds so amazingly unlike Coldplay, reminds me of the blissful “Rush of Blood” album.)
