A few songs and videos that pay tribute to years and moments passed.
NEVER GIVE UP
Simple song with a simple message.
THE BOYS OF FALL
Everyone has a special age that lives in memories with a golden hue. Could be college, could be young childhood, could be first job. For many, it's playing high school sports, namely, football.
This ESPN Documentary is about high school football. And all the emotions swirling and embedded in the sport at that age.
It's shot and edited beautifully. But what strikes me most is how resonant the messages are. The whole film is an hour long, but here's a short excerpt.
IDIOT WITH A TRIPOD
Odd name, right? It's an homage to 1929 film, "Man with a Camera." Obviously, this film's got much better technology
It was shot in NY during the crazy blizzard just after Christmas. People here get excited over the prospect of an inch of snow. Not sure how they would survive in this storm. Let alone shoot amazing video.
Roger Ebert, the film critic, loves this piece and says it deserves an Academy Award for best Short, Live Action film.
