You Can Own A Little Piece Of The Creepy Multimillionaire Who Steve Carell Got An Academy Award Nomination For Playing

The Punk Philatelist

Lately, Steve Carell has been creeping out moviegoers with his portrayal of John E. Du Pont in the film Foxcatcher. Academy voters even gave him a Best Actor nomination, hoping it would make him go away and stop haunting their nightmares.

Life is a song.

It could be a solo, a duet, a choir or a groupie thing where you can’t hear a word in the song because it lacks a rhythm or an intonation,

It always has a chorus, how you sing it depends on how you feel the song,

Sometimes songs hold the answers we need, other times the answers evolve with our thoughts to suit different stanzas of life,

Sometimes we just get caught up in the moment and our heartbeats sway to the rhythms even when we can’t fathom the meaning,

Such is life, a song with instruments, play it your style, subdue it like a violin and take good care of it that it can never be broken.
