rest in peace tony scott

even though tony scott’s “true romance” is one of my favorite films ever

tony scott’s “top gun” paid my way through junior college.

i was selling stereos tvs and vcrs back in the day when those things cost money

at the time Hi-Fi stereo vcrs were all the rage because with the right movie,

the sound would just explode all over your house.

the jet engines of Top Gun was exactly the sound that many of my male customers were seeking

(after i showed it to them)

and the pretty boys pilots were exactly what the ladies enjoyed seeing

thus it was very easy to sell $500 vcrs and matching $800 25 inch tube tvs

thanks to Tony Scott, his pastel pallet, his smoke, and that 92 db cd quality hifi sound

i cant even imagine the misery that must take over a man to make him wanna

jump off a bridge to his death.

but whoever greets him on the other side,

i hope they liked mr scott as much as i do

and lets not forget that he introduced the world to halle

a year ago i was between jobs

even though i was the prettiest girl at the dance i was still scared

change’ll freak you out, especially if it comes unexpectedly

however if the only constant is change, shouldnt change always be expected?

her name was sass she lived in a shoe. she said when yr unemployed whattya do?

so we ate, took pics, then drank in a hipster meadow

it was sunday in the year 2011.

how much have we changed in a year? well sass moved to the least coast

and my apartment is all different, but have we really changed?

for the better?

have we learned skillz that will help us in 2013?

read any books? seen anything life changing?

done anything life changing?

took any risks?

stuck yr neck out?

shed some skin?

went for the win?

instead of just playing

not to lose?

or was the last 12 months just another snooze?
