I'm sitting in front of the Moulin Rouge DVD that I picked up today, and the Tango scene just ended.
On top of it being my favorite dance, it's also probably my favorite scene of any film. There's so much power and passion in it. They've captured the dance and bent it to their will, bring a deadly passion to the sequence. It's just fucking amazing.
Amazing like Titus and Twelve Monkeys and American Beauty and Happiness and Trainspotting and Fight Club.
This is what I should be doing with my life. Making things that are powerful and moving. Making things that grip people by the soul and beat them on the pavement of their memories causing them to break with joy or run in disgust.
Not sitting in a stall. Not sitting on the phone. Not working in Real Estate (insert spitting noise here).
There's no passion in Real Estate other than mine. And when you're passionate about your job when no one else is, no one understands you.
Coat tails, people! Coat tails! It's time to prep for liftoff.
I will love you, until my dying day...
