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. tam da aynı süreçte aynı sancıları çekiyoruz. ben tüm çocuklar için hayırlısı olmasını diliyorum. Okulların ne kadar iyi olduğundan çok o çocuğa ne kadar uygun olduğu önemli ama 5 yaşındaki bir çocuk için bu kararı kim nasıl verebilir ki?

  18. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  24. Platoche>On veut faire un exemple d’un type qui a certe fauté. C’est forcément injuste parce qu’une personne va payé pour tout ceux qui n’ont pas été clean auparavant.Jusqu’à preuve du contraire, Mvila n’était pas à Krysna et il paye plus chère que les vrais fouteurs de merde, ceux qui empêche les autres de jouer à leur meilleur niveau pour des prétextes extra sportif.Quant à Toulalan, je crois qu’il est radié à vie officieusement. Ce n’est peut être pas le meilleur exemple.

  27. Je n’ai pas compris en quoi consistait l’originalité du magasin. Une forme de Métro pour particuliers, c’est ça ?Quant aux services prépayés, on nous explique qu’on les règle en caisses. C’est donc l’équivalent d’un achat sur internet, c’est à dire que lieu de la transaction n’est pas le même que celui où est rendu le service. J’ai du passer à côté.

  34. Its well worth following a guide when creating a wordpress blog, in hindsight it can save you a lot of mistakes and omissions and helps to ensure everything runs smoothly. A comprehensive guide is just what the affiliate industry needs, especially for anyone who’s new to affiliate marketing.

  35. But here's something that clearly isn't funny. The "recommended videos" part of the new feed is showing some rather offensive content. It's no better than the original recommended videos. I want to turn this off for good. How do I do it?

  41. Being honest is … Being honest is fine. But being honest about your lack of control, lack of options and possibly about your unrealistic approach to women (romantic comedy) is surefire way to get rejected.So called called Nice Guy syndrome – you idealize women as you do/did with your parents, put them on pedestal and mainly hoping that some person, some pretty girl will finally make you happy and whole.You wanna get the girl? Work on yourself, your insecurities, fears etc first – be whole.
