While half a world away in South Africa ~

The movie Searching for Sugar Man left such an impression on me two days ago when I saw it ~ it might be up there as one of my top favorite movies of all times. The story was other-worldly and proof that truth really is stranger than fiction (it's based on a true story of Sixto Rodriguez).

This article by Rolling Stone about Rodriguez: 10 Things You Don't Know About the 'Searching for Sugar Man' Star is interesting for more info.

my favorite song from the movie:


Was it a huntsman or a player
That made you pay the cost
That now assumes relaxed positions 
And prostitutes your loss? 
Were you tortured by your own thirst
In those pleasures that you seek 
That made you Tom the curious 
That makes you James the weak?

And you claim you got something going
Something you call unique 
But I've seen your self-pity showing
And the tears rolled down your cheeks.

Soon you know I'll leave you 
And I'll never look behind
'Cos I was born for the purpose 
That crucifies your mind. 
So con, convince your mirror
As you've always done before 
Giving substance to shadows 
Giving substance ever more.

And you assume you got something to offer 
Secrets shiny and new
But how much of you is repetition
That you didn't whisper to him too.
