Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts. I've been busy this month, but now i'll start to spend more time with this blog. This movie reminds me of a great moment in my life, when I was young and used to watch it with my parents. It's one of the most epic movies I can remember, and this speech is really inspiring.
"You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight? Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. At least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!"
Mel Gibson - Braveheart (1995)

"What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!"
Tony Montana - Scarface
I guess everyone agree: this movie is epic. Tony Montana is one of the best and most memorable roles that Al Pacino did. I couldn't agree more with this speech. That's what people do...they pretend to be nice and perfect but under their masks they aren't more than a bunch of assholes. They steal, they lie, they are our politicians, our governments, our media. Sad but true fact.

I bought the Rocky collection a few days ago and I was watching it again. There are many great quotes I could take from it, but this is one of the best. It's from the last movie, Rocky Balboa (2006).
"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that
and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!"
Well, this is a damn of a life lesson, isn't it? Life is harsh and cruel sometimes, and if we let it go over us, we will never be more than shit. Plus, we can't blame anyone for our mistakes and our hard times. We just have to face it and keep moving forward, like he says. I know it's a lot easier to give up and let people tell us we aren't good, but we all know how pathetic is that. So let's not be cowards, we are better than that!.

Today I bring to you the first quote from a music! I mean...why not? There are so many amazing lyrics we could think about.
This one, for example, is so great. Some people can't form bonds. They cannot live in the same place for a long time. Some people want to see the world, and you will never change them. I know sometimes it hurts if you get close to someone like this, but you gotta understand. You'll have to let go.
I'm a little like that. I don't grow roots anywhere, and Lord knows I can't change...
Here's the song:

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off. "
Tyler Durden - Fight Club
It was about time!
The movie is from 1999 and it is still applicable to our reality. Most of us are living the way media told us to do. We born, go to school, go to college, find a job in some company, sitting in a chair and typing on a computer, get old, and die. What if we do like Edward Norton's character and disconnect from our lifes for a while? Do something we really would enjoy and would make us feel alive. I know this is pretty much what I've been saying in the other posts, but this is a message that everyone should think about.
