Un año 10

Feliz año nuevo
Hoy es el último día del año y, como cada año, cuelgo en el mural de mi despacho el calendario de Fotogramas para 2010. Durante todo el mes de enero una Marilyn Monroe refulgente y chispeante me saludará desde un baño de espuma. Uno levanta la vista y trabaja mucho mejor rodeado de cosas hermosas y placenteras. Fotografías, dibujos, sin faltarme tampoco las botellas de agua mineral, flores frescas, mi crema de manos y mis sagrados auriculares. Sin ellos, no podría trabajar. Para mí fue un gustazo leer que tanto Almodóvar como Enrique Vila-Matas también escriben con música, ¡preferentemente en inglés! Así entiendes menos la letra y te concentras en lo que estás escribiendo, pero a la vez, estás sintiendo, y eligiendo la música también eliges la energía que insuflará a tus personajes.

Dicen que la economía no se recuperará este año, pero por favor, que se recuperen nuestros corazones. Refugiémonos en las cosas sencillas, y no es una frase hecha. Disfrutemos con una caricia, con una canción, con el libro perfecto que cae como un milagro en nuestras manos, con un beso eterno, con ese paraíso express que está al alcance de todo el mundo. Como decía un escritor “la gente se cree que el paraíso está en el cielo, pero está aquí, con nosotros, accesible en cada momento”. Como cantaba Freddie Mercury: This could be heaven for everyone.

Y os paso la para mí una de las mejores escenas del cine en general, para empezar el año con ritmo y con mejor pie, la estupenda versión de Waterloo de Abba de esas dos actrices como la copa de un pino, esas hermosísimas mujeres, Rachel Griffiths y Tony Collette, en La boda de Muriel, una joya independiente australiana, llena de autenticidad, que todavía es un gustazo de ver. Ahí van, ahí van las que se supone son las feas de la película:D.

Feliz año nuevo, y como siempre, ahí va mi consigna: Carpe diem;D

Tony Collette

People Have the Power

I was dreaming in my dreaming
of an aspect bright and fair
and my sleeping it was broken
but my dream it lingered near
in the form of shining valleys
where the pure air recognized
and my senses newly opened
I awakened to the cry
that the people / have the power
to redeem / the work of fools
upon the meek / the graces shower
it's decreed / the people rule

The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power

Vengeful aspects became suspect
and bending low as if to hear
and the armies ceased advancing
because the people had their ear
and the shepherds and the soldiers
lay beneath the stars
exchanging visions
and laying arms
to waste / in the dust
in the form of / shining valleys
where the pure air / recognized
and my senses / newly opened
I awakened / to the cry

Refrain

Where there were deserts
I saw fountains
like cream the waters rise
and we strolled there together
with none to laugh or criticize
and the leopard
and the lamb
lay together truly bound
I was hoping in my hoping
to recall what I had found
I was dreaming in my dreaming
god knows / a purer view
as I surrender to my sleeping
I commit my dream to you

Refrain

The power to dream / to rule
to wrestle the world from fools
it's decreed the people rule
it's decreed the people rule
LISTEN
I believe everything we dream
can come to pass through our union
we can turn the world around
we can turn the earth's revolution
we have the power
People have the power ...

"Waterloo"

My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way
The history book on the shelf
Is always repeating itself

Waterloo - I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo - Promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo

My, my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger
Oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight
And how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo - I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo - Promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo

So how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose -

Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo
