Fundamental happiness? Be here now.

Measure your life in dollars? That’s the conceit behind this [Make the Girl Dance (Kill Me)] fun, wild, original, hip, brilliant…and ultimately sickly video:

  1. Call me dense, but I'm quite sure that "fun, wild, original, hip, & brilliant" are not words I'd use to describe this video. It's just a greatly sped up version of everyday prime time television. I wasn't put off, but what does it add, really? I'm all ears.

    Watching this video I can say – Been there done that. I have travelled around the world, done the stripclubs and partied like a rockstar. Not a big deal. Its really sad that this is what people may think they would do if they know they have limited time left, but its all superficial bullshit! I was diagnosed with cancer a month back and this video is an insult to what you may experience when you know that your time here is limited.

    Bravo Jennie! Your name reminds me of Forest Gump and in that Movie "jenny" communicated what you wrote… It's not all about pleasure & self-gratification. Loving & building up others is where it's at while at the same time loving & building up ourself. Leaving a legacy of positivism… people will remember you, they will honor your memory if you live this way. (The way of love).
    I am in the final stages of a divorce. In the past year I have completely transformed myself. I think about if I were to die tomorrow… how many people would be at my funeral… prolly almost 100 people who did not know who I was just over a year ago. This is due to me deciding to become better & to build others up. People have called me "hero" & "an inspiration"… I don't know what they are talking about… But they do. I decided to "lead by example". This has been the greatest decision of my life.
