This week the world was in shock and full of sadness for someone that is remarkable. Steve Jobs is dead. I know there are many more important people in the world but he is someone that really contributed more than the regular guy for sure. And because of his exposure to the media he was really well known and adored. After hearing many conspiracy theories about the fact that important people don’t just die i think his desease and really quiet and noble twilight proves this is all bullshit. If there is a guy in the world today that could have total access to doctors and new technologies to help fighting for survival this guy was Steve Jobs. Yet he died and he was buried in a small ceremony as a normal person with a family would. No cryogenic conservation of his body or any weird thing expected by some. Just a regular guy. This fact alone means a lot. It means he was only a person like everybody else and it means we have in ourselves the tools to be as amazing as he was. It means that during his short lifetime he made so much he will be remembered for some time. And ultimately it means that with the right opportunity and the will to do something a person can go as far as he did without being a superman or someone from out of this world. I think this is a great legacy. The proof that anyone can be someone really special. This commercial from the 90’s showed a lot of hes vision about this matter. I knew it well but never before i heard it in the voice of Jobs himself. I just learned he recorded an option with his own voice. It’s amazing…

Today i had the pleasure of watching this documentary about a group os singers composed just by elderly forks. Their show is really one of a kind since they sing music old people don’t usually sing like Ramones and The Clash. As i’m a filmmaker i coudn’t help but wonder how lucky was this british director from BBC. You can see in the film that he is really lousy and not really for to deal with a subject like that. Even so the film is great. The story is so good and the characters so deep that there’s no room for the director’s lack of vision. It’s so raw that you would just need to put those images together and magical things happen. One advice. Not for the weak hearts. GO RENT NOW!!!!
