Who, How, and Why--

are you?

not just:

What do you do?

What did you buy?

Did I live

When I came to die?

A documentary of Hugo Chavez's presidency in Venezuela.  It comments on dreams, power politics, and equality/inequality.

Think about competing aspects of the dream here.  Who competes?  Who wins?  Who loses?  How?  How does this pertain to the dream?

 

 

Okay.  What about Ethan Frome?  Link here to the Ethan Frome page:

All these stupid silly songs

Keep trying to catch your ear

I'm trying desperately

It's just so hard to persevere

And even if you listened,

I never had much to say

Cause it's that same old song

I've written for a day

 

Shelter me oh genius words

Just give me strength

To pen these things

Give me peace to weld her wings

And oh oh carry on all you minstrels of the world

We will catch our lady's ear

We will win for us the girl

 

All these minstrels through the ages

That is really all we are

Simply singing for the girl

That makes us try so very hard

To craft the perfect limerick

To wield unending woe

To write such silly songs

And the difference never know.

 

Shelter me oh genius words

Just give me strength

To pen these things

Give me peace to weld her wings

And oh oh carry on all you minstrels of the world

We will catch our lady's ear

We will win for us the girl

 

I'll hold on to the dream

Ooo this beggar's plea, an optimistic fantasy

Just hold the hand and drop the knee

You're facing love

You're embracing melody

 

Shelter me oh genius words

Just give me strength

To pen these things

And give me peace to weld her wings

And oh oh carry on all you minstrels of the world

We will catch our lady's ear

We will win for us the girl

 

And carry on oh carry on all you minstrels of the world

We will catch our lady's ear

We will win for us the girl
