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. Big waves in the Gulf have made news on the BBC. Becki should have gotten some live video on this event… Are the uncorrupted reporters busy getting corrupted??

  6. That charge of driving w/o license for barri shabazz in honolulu march 1982 seems plausible. The dunce left occidental and travelled to pokkyston, but there is no record of barri x for Columbia 82-83 junior year. Did he come back from pokkyston and return to hawaii.

  8. Prinzipiell ist das richtig. Trotzdem sollte man ja auch irgendwann anfangen (zu lernen), für sich selbst zu denken und zu handeln und sich eben nicht NUR nach anderen richten – auch wenn es sich hierbei vielleicht um die eigenen Eltern und Lehrer handelt.Naja, ein Vorwurf sollte es ja sowieso nicht sein, sondern vielmehr eine Anregung dazu, einfach mal danke zu sagen und nicht alles einfach so hinzunehmen…

  16. I would love to do a fun portrait session… or something vintage. I think that it would be amazing if we could get access to a small airport or somewhere with small and/or vintage planes and do a “vintage travel” theme. Lots of ideas rolling around in my head:)

  25. In answer to the question: when will liberal zionists give up on their dream of a two state solution, the answer is: after (not immediately after, but certainly not before) the PLO gives up on a two state solution and asks for one man one vote. Until that time, the politics will not demand anything of the liberal zionists. (The politics rather than the idealism.)

Také jsem se takto blamovala, když jsme kdysi bydleli v Praze a zoufale jsem pak pobíhala po městě z jedné strany na druhou ve snaze zajistit dětem všechny kroužky po kterých toužily (nebo myslely, že touží). Všude se na mě koukali jak na nezkušenou vesničanku (Liberec!)a klepali si na čelo. Trochu se mi tedy ulevilo, že se to může stát i člověku velkoměstskému :-)

  45. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Cheers!
