In Your Element

Sir Ken Robinson talks about talent, pursuing one's dreams and doing what we are most talented at. There's also another post with one of his TED sessions on the blog. Click here to watch the newer one.
Here are some relevant quotes from the session:

"Finding your passion does change everything."

"The problem for humans is often not that we aim too high and fail, it's that we aim too low and succeed."

Girl's Best Friend...

If you are/were a girl, who would you choose as your best friend? Tricky question, but everything ends fine in one of the most down-to-earth, truthful movies, with a character that pretty much resembles one of my own ;)
In Girl's Best Friend, Janeane Garofalo plays Mary, a music critic who has a hard time settling down with her boyfriend. The movie has a happy ending - plus a cute dog, Pinky - but what's in between is for you to discover.
Trailer here.

If there's a rocket tie me to it

Two of my all time favorite bands area teaming up again. YeeeeYYY!!! Snow Patrol is supporting once again U2 in their 360* grand tour this summer, mainly in Milan and Gothenburg. Since U2's tour is supposed to continue in Europe in 2010 as well, maybe they will come "in a town" near me :))
