Lyrics

You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want
You think you got the best of me
Think you had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I’d come running back
Baby you don’t know me, ’cause you’re dead wrong
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
You heard that I was starting over with someone new
But told you I was moving on over you
You didn’t think that I’d come back
I’d come back swinging
You try to break me but you see what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I’m not the broken-hearted
Thanks to you I’m finally thinking ’bout me
You know in the end the day to left was just my beginning
In the end
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
When I’m alone

    certainly like your web site but you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the reality however I’ll certainly come again again.

Senti-mental approach to drive; political theme lags to slay virus

Published

Proposed Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium

With an appeal that half of the profit amount of the movie will go to the charitable Dhurmus-Suntali foundation that is making a mega structure— Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium in Bharatpur, publicity of the movie got started, and it looked like the plan worked as the movie theaters got thronged with people who wanted to be a part in this noble cause, and enjoy Nepali movie after a long drought—a win-win.

Sitaram Kattel and Kunjana Ghimire Kattel are proven names in TV, so audience were anticipating something good, and they got somewhat which they were looking for. Though, there is ample room for improvement in the movie on various aspects.

The movie starts in the backdrop of the civil war, flashback showing two brothers from the same family, involved in different roles— one being a rebel, and another being a soldier. The story starts after 21 years from where the preparation of house of representative election is on high.

The first half is paced with the development of characters mainly associated with two different parties— democratic and communist in particular. The lead played by Sitaram as Dhrubaram is associated with communist party and his wife portrayed by Kunjana as Juneli with the other— not because she is inspired by the party’s dogma, but her father played by Rajaram Poudel is the contestant who is in a pressure of winning the election by hook or crook as the party has given him the last chance, even ignoring his previous failures. This happens to be the main conflict in the first half, resulting in a feud between husband and wife.

In the plot, Dhurbaram is shown to be a kingmaker because he holds a key for the deciding votes, which he can bring from a squatter settlement (Ekta Basti) whose kingpin happens to be his dear friend played by Dayahang Rai. With much pressure from wife and mother, he decides to support the party with the candidacy of his father-in-law. Before the interval, the poll results are out. Unexpectedly, the party that Dhrubaram is shown to be supporting loses with a slight margin. Here the votes from the squatter settlement happen to be the decider—so his party members, father-in-law, and wife smell a rat on him for a foul play.

A shot from the movie

The second half that is quite slow in progression tells us whether there was conspiracy plotted by Dhrubram for the election decider. The voters from the squatter settlement were coaxed to vote in an agreement that they will get the property papers. After winning the election, Dhurbaram’s party leader neglects the commitment putting him in grave family and social trouble. Undecided, he eventually decides to save the squatter as his wife and father- in-law too have taken shelter in that settlement after losing all assets and capital in election. Whether he is able to save it or not, and the entire struggle are portrayed in the second half.

The elongated comedy part revolves around the family feud, which at times gets boring. Political atmosphere is captured appropriately with realistic sets and properties. The scene when people are shown to be practicing their franchise looks natural. Alcohol and cigarettes are shown quite rampantly in the shots, which could have been avoided in many scenes. And not wearing helmet while riding motorbikes has been a prominent culture in most of the Nepali movies, so it has also taken a leaf out from its counterparts.

As far as the making is concerned, the story telling could have been better by breaking the plot sequence— to and fro as it gets very predictable. Sitaram and Kunjana look to be overshadowed by their earlier hit-characters, so it gets hard to get appealed by them. Sandip Chettri, who plays land mafia looks a little loud so as Wilson Bikram Rai, as a cunning party cadre. Daya and Buddhi Tamang have looked natural as per the nature of their role. The dialogues are rich and understandable despite carrying a political theme.

Fight sequence and kidnapping scene look over-dramatic, and the end does not look too convincing. Camera work is fine, though use of excess moving shots can make one jittery at times.

The justification of the title Senti Virus is not deciphered anywhere in the movie. May be the production team has left it to the audiences. Who is the actual virus is not clear, and so as the meaning of senti is not justified.

Overall, the movie based in the political themes, despite drawbacks, it has been able to leave a strong message that you cannot trust political leaders to the fullest, and have to contribute yourself to bring changes in the society. It is good to see that movie in political theme is gaining popularity, and attracting a lot of youth.

Since the movie is made for a social cause, it should not fully disappoint, as there are a lots of positives in the movie, and at least people can come out of the theater felling that they too added a brick to the mega project.

Verdict: 3/5

Cast: Sitaram Kattel (Dhurmus), Kunjana Ghimire (Suntali), Dayahang Rai, Wilson Bikram Rai, Buddhi Tamang, Rajaram Poudel, Basant Bhatta, Kamalmani Nepal, Sadip Chhetri, Pawan Khatiwada, Alish Rai, Sunita Ghimire

Full Oscars speech of Joaquin Phoenix

Phoenix’s speech during his acceptance of Oscars award for Best Actor for his role in the movie Joker.

I’m full of so much gratitude now. I do not feel elevated above any of my fellow nominees or anyone in this room, because we share the same love – that’s the love of film. And this form of expression has given me the most extraordinary life. I don’t know where I’d be without it.

But I think the greatest gift that it’s given me, and many people in [this industry] is the opportunity to use our voice for the voiceless. I’ve been thinking about some of the distressing issues that we’ve been facing collectively.

I think at times we feel or are made to feel that we champion different causes. But for me, I see commonality. I think, whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against injustice.

We’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. Many of us are guilty of an egocentric world view, and we believe that we’re the centre of the universe

We’re talking about the fight against the belief that one nation, one people, one race, one gender, one species, has the right to dominate, use and control another with impunity.

I think we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. Many of us are guilty of an egocentric world view, and we believe that we’re the centre of the universe. We go into the natural world and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakeable. Then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.

We fear the idea of personal change, because we think we need to sacrifice something; to give something up. But human beings at our best are so creative and inventive, and we can create, develop and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and the environment.

I have been a scoundrel all my life, I’ve been selfish. I’ve been cruel at times, hard to work with, and I’m grateful that so many of you in this room have given me a second chance. I think that’s when we’re at our best: when we support each other. Not when we cancel each other out for our past mistakes, but when we help each other to grow. When we educate each other; when we guide each other to redemption.

When he was 17, my brother [River] wrote this lyric. He said: “run to the rescue with love and peace will follow.”
