i was thinking about relationship as it pertains to song about relationship. it occured to me, i figured out a key to a relationship and how to make it work.

when u first meet somebody u find out they like you first of all. a friend of a friend of theirs tells you he or she really likes you. and it kills u, force you and sends u on the grounds. then somehow u got her phone number. u call her up and start talkin and at the end you say "well, thats a great phone conversation, can i see ya sometime?" and then they say this, they say  "i’d like that.."

"i’d like that" makes u fall on the floor again, ur heart about to stop. nothing feels better than "i’d like that". so now, ur blood presssure goin, u r six feet off the ground, u can’t sleep because of "i’d like that".

so u’ve been hanging out for a while and u’ve been calling and talkin on the phone all the time and then u drop the bomb or what feels like the bomb. u say, u know what … "i’ve been thinking about you a while". and she just went speechless and then you say "what?"… and she said "i’m sorry i’ve just… i’ve.. just.. i’ve been thinking about you too." BAM! higher than the sky. but now, "i’d like that"..DONE! now you r up to "i’ve been thinking about you.. "

"i’d like that" doesn’t work anymore.

and then a few months past , whatever weeks, whatever makes u feel comfortable you say "i gotta tell you something.." you say this…. " i’m in love with you…" and nothing in the world sounds better than i’m in love with you and maybe she starts crying.

now what doesn’t work? "i’d like that" and "i’ve been thinking about you"

now fast forward u start sayin "i love you a lot", six weeks, six months, now u are like… "i wanna marry u, i wanna impregnant u with my love, damn! words just doenst work anymore..". and then u say this line, u know u’ve used this line before "i just wish they put a new word in the dictionary bigger than love because love just doesn’t describe what i feel."

and so then now he/she start askin "do you love me?" and you start going "of course i love you, i’ll say it twice, i’ll say it three times", and then you cross a really interesting point where all of the sudden comes "i hate you, i hate you". and they are saying "i hate you a lot" and she’s goin "we’re over!!" u say "no we’re not!"

now the words do not work at all, completely meaningless, it doesn’t work anymore,you are throwing punches under water and u know u r done..

you know what the moral of the story is? if there’s any… never ever underestimate the power of "i’d like that" !

[Movie] Angel-A

I was a bit skeptical about the movie. Well, I think I always started out a bit skeptical for everything in black and white. If its not the artistic portrayal of Paris and the name Luc Besson on the DVD cover, I probably would have skipped this over any other movie.

But I was right, there's something about this movie. Luc Besson, well, let's go back a little bit before going to far. He's basically the man behind many great movies, you've probably watched the TAXI sequels, La Femme Nikita, Transporter, the most recent Taken, or my old favorite Leon (now that I've mentioned it, I'll do a review on this one too). However, in Angela, he seems to be directing toward something new. Exploring a new ground. Unlike previous movies, you won't find gunfights, bombs, fast-racing-car, etc. Instead, you'll get two person (I'll refer as The Man and The Girl) pretty much conversing for the whole movie.

Now, the kicks of the movie is the moment the two of them meet. The Man, having chased by all the debts and the problems he's made, decided to end his life by jumping off the bridge. So there he is standing on the edge only to find The Girl is a couple step away from him, about to do the same thing. When The Girl jumps off, The Man responded automatically, jumped off the bridge and helped The Girl. From that point forward, it starts to get pretty interesting. The Girl, wanted to repay the deed, pretty much helped and solved The Man's problem in an oh-so-many-unthinkable ways. And the best thing is that it doesn't stop there. The Girl goes as far as leading the crooked-piece-of-bum a.k.a The Man to finding value in himself, discovering the love that he never know he's been longing for, and finally, being able to love others in return.

IMDB might score this one 6.9, but I'll say it's a 8.1. Why? Because I can relate with the characters very well. Isn't The Guy pretty much the reflection of every-one of us? Humans and not just humans, broken-humans. Humans who through life and its ups and downs will eventually discover his true being, his purpose, finds love and then living life like never before. It is only when we acknowledge how fragile we are, only when we let The Almighty to take control of our life, reset us, that we discover beautiful things, and find more control of our future. Splendid.

Also, I really enjoy the movie now that many of the scenes are still familiar from my last trip to Paris couple months ago. I see Notre Dame, I see the bridges (in real life they are much dirtier though), the river walkway just across Eiffel, the Concorde area, and many more. Its even more beautiful in black and white. =)

I'm happi I'm back writing again. Please feel free to comment, click the like, or if you ever want the DVD, don't hesitate.
