One of the best Music Videos I’ve seen.
“Change moves in spirals, not circles. For example, the sun goes up and then it goes down. But everytime that happens, what do you get? You get a new day. You get a new one. When you breathe, you inhale and you exhale, but every single time that you do that you’re a little bit different then the one before. We’re always changing. And its important to know that there are some changes you can’t control and that there are others you can.”
I don’t think I’ve ever been so hideously wrecked by a film. I was violently crying. I’m not exaggerating.
Dear, Zachary is documentary about Andrew Bagby made by his childhood friend Kurt Kuenne. In it Kurt travels thousands of miles interviewing everyone who Andrew ever touched in his lifetime. Andrew Bagby was shot five times when he was twenty-eight years old by an ex-girlfriend, Shirley Turner. While on trial for his murder, Shirley revealed she was pregnant with Zachary. Kurt made this film to teach Zachary about his father who he’d never know…but somewhere towards the middle the story takes a horrible turn and the outcome for me is just heartbreak and disbelief.
Kate and David Bagby, the father of Andrew and the grandparents of Zachary, they are lights in a dark devastating world. They are two of the most precious angels on the face of the planet. May they live a long life and be able to find some happiness in their futures.
God Bless Them. Honestly.
Okay…now I’ll return you to my typical hormonal ridiculous self. I just needed a minute.
This picture gives me shivers.
It happens once in a while where I’m into a song in this huge way that subsequently fades. Sometimes it comes back in bursts but it’s not as sincere as the first time…
Then there are those songs (or albums) that I can feel all the way through me that I will never forget or lose that sense of absolute awe that strikes me when I hear truly endearing music. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and Kid A are examples of albums…
As for a song, well, “Holocene” by Bon Iver has joined those ranks. It floors me how fantastic it is in every aspect I could note and observe.
"…and at once i knew, i was not magnificent. "
And if you think it’s a sad song, please, please, please… Read more into it. Absolutely lovely.
