THE SHORTLIST (DAY 3) The Arcade Fire

It took me a lot of thought to come up with number 3. Honestly, there’s a ton of Film Directors, Actors and various other people I would love to work with!

In the end, I decided to go with The Arcade Fire. Honestly…I’m a big fan! It’s that simple. Although I’m focusing on my acting career right now, I would love to direct a music video for them. I’d love to play a role in one of their music videos as well!

And between you and me… I absolutely adored observing people’s reactions last year when their album, The Suburbs, won the Grammy for Best Album! Many good laughs were had!

Here’s the Music Video for their Title Track…The Suburbs, directed by Spike Jonze (another name that could go on the list!)

This Woman Speaks to Me Directly

…And I have no idea how she does it!

happiness, hit her like a train on a track.
coming towards her, stuck still no turning back.
she hid around corners and she hid under beds.
she killed it with kisses and from it she fled
with every bubble she sank with a drink
and washed it away down the kitchen sink

the dog days are over, the dog days are done
the horses are coming so you better run
run fast for your mother run fast for your father
run for your children for your sisters and brothers
leave all your love and your loving behind you
can’t carry it with you if you want to survive
the dog days are over the dog days are done
can’t you hear the horses cuz here they come

and i never wanted anything from you
except for everything you had and what was left after that too. oh.
happiness it hit her like a bullet in the back
struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

the dogdays are over the dog days are gone
can you hear the horses cuz here they come
run fast for your mother and fast for your father
run for your children for your sisters and brothers
leave all your love and your longing behind you
can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

the dog days are over, the dog days are gone
can you hear the horses because here they come X 2

Happiness, hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with a drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming so you better run

Run fast for your mother run fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can’t you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come

And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had
And what was left after that too, oh.

Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
Struck from a great height
By someone who should know better than that

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come

Run fast for your mother and fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run

Last Night I Got Choked Up…

This video set me off.

You have no idea how much seeing this would have changed my life if I had seen it as a little kid.  For the best.  In every. Single. Way.  And I’m only soon-to-be 32.  I have friends who are much older.  I lost one of them not too long ago. This guy:

I am proud to be who I am today.  I can thank Alan Sues for it, in part.  He was a major pioneer as far as being in the spotlight goes.  For gay people, that is .

I don’t know if kids realize these days just how much dedication to compassion, love and enlightenment was put into giving us a better World to live in today.  Alan was dedicated to those values in his own quirky way, whether he realized it or not.  I feel like it is my Honor, my Privilege and my Duty to give back to this same World.

 

In my own little way.

Thank you Alan.


News roundup

What has Victor Santoro been up to lately? Why is he speaking of himself in the 3rd person? Did he lose his marbles? Did he ever have any? 😛

Seriously now, I’ve been so busy enjoying my life and my freedom that I thought I’d give you a quick update on anything and everything Victor Santoro-related!

On the modelling side, I’ve been working with Nicolas McComber,  photography teacher at Collège Marsan, philosopher and photographer extraordinaire! Here’s a link to the results of our collaborative labours of Love.

Cocky Bastard!

I’ve also been working as a nude model for various drawing classes for Galerie Synesthésie. I’m looking forward to expanding my network in the area. Don’t hesitate to  contact me if you’re looking for a professional model! Check out the contact form at the end of this post.

I went to a boxing gym 2 days ago and Herby, the local trainer, kicked my ass so hard and I was so exhausted and yet fulfilled that I made a commitment to get a subscription and get to that next level of being in shape! Looking forward to looking the best I ever have in my entire life!

Also doing some theatre classes at the Montreal School of Performing Arts. I’m enjoying it immensely! My teacher is absolutely wonderful! And she teaches a variation of Method Acting which is wonderful since I had been reading Konstantin Stanislavsky’s An Actor’s Work. The main idea is not to act, but to be! If you would like to get yourself a copy, I highly suggest you get Jean Benedetti’s translated version, as it reads very clearly compared to past translations.

I’ve been busy advocating for the development of the electric car as well. I even started a website devoted to the cause!

On the music side, I’ve been obsessing over Radiohead’s latest masterpiece, The King of Limbs. In my not-so-humble educated opinion, this LP constitutes the epitome of their career. I feel like I could write an entire fascinating book dissecting the sheer genius behind this album! The opening lines are just so empowering. Open your mouth wide, the Universe will sigh. Wow! If you don’t own a pair of professional headphones, this album is an excellent reason to get one!

The Return of the Kings of Limbs

Lastly, and most importantly, I’ve been re-discovering my center through reading and practicing a book on Chakra energies. Here’s the Spanish version.

That’s it for now! Well, that’s all I’m willing to share with you at this point in time to be more precise! 😉
