Elizabethtown - There's a difference between a failure and a fiasco...


"Drew Baylor: [voiceover] There's a difference between a failure and a fiasco. A failure is merely the absence of success. Any fool can achieve failure. But a fiasco, a fiasco is a disaster of epic propotions. A fiasco is a folk tale told to other's to make other people feel more alive because it didn't happen to them"

Maybe I'm hopeless a Romantic spirit still in search of that truth which the original Boston Transcendentalism suspected beneath the text of American nature as Manifest Destiny. This nature only reveals itself in the action of the unconditioned Self. There have been many failures in my life, but my recent experience with facebook already belongs to one of his biggest fiascos, namely, a monumental cosmic disaster. There is on the virtual life, in that beautiful plenty of euphemisms language of sociologists, a new “post-social” dimension, which only seems to stimulate the darkest psychoses and manufacturing defects of our species. If nature was a corrective for the social theater at the time of Emerson, now the hegemony of culture as second nature only turns the social roles more grotesque and dangerous in their masquerade in this new dimension. It was with these mixed claustrophobic feelings that I finally closed my profile with a last glance at Mark Zuckerberg on the cover of “Mad” magazine: what a jerk and wanker, what a loss of time! I wanted only to breathe fresh air. But I have not lost my sense of humor and my faith in what is simple, beautiful and comes from the heart, my thrust for truth, and my love for real and common people, real feelings in real life, vibrating fiercely out there as Drew Baylor´s journey to the heart of America and to sweet Claire, as he eventually accepts his "epic failure" believing in patience and that regenerating magic power of nature. For these and many other reasons I love “Elisabethtown” today more than ever, although my heart is still hurt and tired. God bless Emerson and the eternal spirit of America!
José Galisi Filho

"Give all to love, obey the heart."

"Love and you shall be loved."

"Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart."

"Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience."

And this Ellen Kishmore´s quote to Drew is pure Emerson: "Drew, it was real, and it was great, and it was really great."



Summerlong - Kathleen Edwards

I know how to play this game
one, two, three and I'm safe
count real slow to five
you couldn't keep me around if you tried





I know how to beat the rage
of my tender age
touch me once in the hall
but don't look back and don't call



There are some things I can hardly say
You've got me feeling a brand new way
Please don't let this be summerlong



And I used to play this game
in the middle lane
pass them all on the inside
and don't get caught in a lie



There are some things I can hardly say
You've got me feeling a brand new way
Please don't let this be summerlong
Cuz I want to stay



All the nights and wasted time
trying to get my head to change its mind
all the talk of what it could be
when it never was



There are some things I can hardly say
You've got me feeling a brand new way
Please don't let this be just summerlong
Please don't let this be summerlong
Cuz I want to stay
