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.

  1. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of
    Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  5. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
    and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.

    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
