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.

  2. Mujadeem…is that from Dune?Worst vacation food I’ve ever eaten:Chincoteague, VAIt makes me miss Seaside Heights. You know it’s bad.I saw this German family – tall, all of them – eating homemade sandwiches in the hotel lobby. I think they brought some spreads with them on the plane.So, I told them I’d give them some hot tips if they’d give me some sandwiches.They passed. I’m hungry.

  7. Le hurlement est un moyen de communiquer à distance. Le loup hurle parce qu’il est en meute. Le chien ne hurle pas parce qu’il est avec son maître. Si celui-ci décède, il hurle à nouveau en retrouvant ses instincts grégaires (hurler à la mort).

  10. Its perfectly okay to be neutral. Dont care about anyone… not worth giving a second thought, if they do not respect ur values. Ultimately, you will find like-minded people.

  12. B&N:I believe you are correct about the way the British Home Office reports homicides.In addition to that, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report uses a category called “non-negligent homicide” to calculate homicide rates. This is the total of felonious homicides and self-defense homicides. This is done for reasons of expediency: many homicides are not classified as “self-defense” until a grand jury or trial jury decides, which may be months, or even years, after the fact.But the combination of the British and American methods does tend to exaggerate the difference.

  15. One of the major supporting characters (with the best name ever) was wholesale cut out from this version. Diebuster doesn’t fare any better, so it’s best to do yourself a favor and see the OVAs in full.
