Getting over him in 8 songs or less

Filed under: media,pop culture,Treats — posted by Mia @ 8:58 am

This Valentine’s Day, TOMORROW, PEOPLE, February 14th, at 7:30pm, HBO 2 will premier Debra J. Solomon’s animated short film Getting Over Him in 8 Songs or Less. The film chronicles the period in Solomon’s life just after her husband of 17 years — 17 years! — leaves her. Nearly paralyzed with loss and loneliness, she found herself writing songs. That process became this film: directed, written, sung, narrated, and generally made wonderful by Debra J. Solomon, of whom I am now a huge fan.

While I’m not going currently going through a rough breakup, I’ve been through some so cataclysmic and life-altering I probably still need therapy, and that’s just what Debra’s film gave me. Her songs aren’t so much steps to recovery as earnest expressions of all the painful questions, doubts, and disappointments that one experiences when someone they’ve built their life around suddenly walks away. Solomon doesn’t dwell on her own details, but we certainly feel like we get to know her — and root for her. Her songs are personal and poignant, but their universal themes will speak to any aching heart.

  3. > Le pauvre Arthur serait sans doute navré d’apprendre qu’il est ainsi “classifié”.Ca c’est vous qui l’affirmez, il serait peut-être ravi de savoir qu’il est dans l’actualité et qu’un homme aussi charmant que Frédéric Mitterrand le trouve supérieur à l’un de ses contemporains.Quant à Orelsan c’est nullisime et grossier, à oublier rapidement.C’est ce billet qu’il faut flinguer.

  4. I cannot believe he did not even face you. I just learned that if someone here in Switzerland gets in a crash within two years of getting a license, they lose it. That sounds pretty good to me.

  5. more than a thousand words in such a short time. I got from it a vivid picture of Indonesia’s largest city and Capital. The images gave out a bustling city that blends well the old and the new, wealth and poverty, architectural heritage etc, so characteristic of major cities. The pictures are so cool. Thank you for sharing the delights of your weekend rendezvous in Jakarta. So glad to hear that you had an enjoyable weekend there.CheersPaterika

  18. Eikes! Niet voor dat hemdeke, dat is schoon, hemdekes zijn altijd schoon (en ja, ook voor grote gasten) mor EIKES voor de strijk. Ik doe dat echt niet graag. Eén of twee hemdekes in de kast, is ok, echt niet meer… en daarom is het mij nog altijd niet gelukt om er zelf eentje te maken. Ik denk gelijk aan de strijk en m'n goesting is al over :-(.

  20. Thank you for this post. I can remember as a child that my favorite place in the world to play was my Grandmother’s basement where she had a huge store of out-dated clothing that my cousins and I would play with for hours upon end as we imagined ourselves in all different scenarios. I made sure that I had a “dress-up” box for my children as well and it was always the most used area of the playroom. That and a playhouse gave my children so much entertainment they almost never played with any of the “fad” toys they always asked for.Rose

  22. that they looked like the people she knows. But the people at Romney headquarters looked like “people at one of your cocktail parties.” (My husband and I entertain frequently for his business and for my charity work). She said “they don’t have anything to offer me but a job—which I appreciate—but I want more for my daughters.” I have to say that she is making me think. People who are saying that the Republican Party must change have a point.

  28. Doesn’t make a difference to me since I never liked the burnt taste of overpriced Starbucks coffee. Only drink coffee when I’m cold anyway and I don’t go to WDW when it’s that cold.

  33. Do you talk about these feelings with your therapist? I would think it would need to be worked through in the “transference” since it should be a focus of the work, rather than an uncomfortable by-product.
