Purpose? Who has one? Where do we find them?

A few days ago I caught  a rumor via Bearspawprint that there’s a music theme of Purpose on the docket.  Purpose has many faces and takes many forms. It’s not always easy to discern when you’re searching for one.  I’ve found it surprisingly challenging to reference music thematically concerned with ‘purpose’ that had meaning for moi.  Perhaps something is a tad askew in my braincase  these days? Perhaps the problem has been with my sense of purpose? Maybe I’m just out of the swing of blogging? Maybe my purposes have all gone haywire one time too many?

At any rate, here’s my purpose music and film menu for the moment.

*

I Aim to Misbehave ~ Serenity ~ Soundtrack, instrumental.

Movie scene to go with music. I Aim to Misbehave – Serenity film speech scene–Mal plans to rock the big bad boys’ boats big time.

*

The Saint Patrick’s Battalion ~ Battalion de San Patricio ~ Damn, just when you think you’ve got a handle on American history the Irish come along and kick the slops bucket.

*

Battlestar Galactica – Adama’s speech for the mission to rescue Hera Agathon–Helo and Sharon’s Human/Cylon child.

150,000 years ago there was a child born out in space and she changed everything by simply be-ing.

Some doctors practice medicine primarily for profit, especially in the American Medical system, and others have different purposes in their minds.  Could a real House thrive and survive? I wonder.

Teardrop – Massive Attack ~ House MD Theme

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Nine night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

You’re stumbling in the dark
You’re stumbling in the dark

The Snow Walker — Pilot’s plane takes a nosedive in the Alaskan wilderness and he is rewired for survival purposes by a young Inuit woman.  If you haven’t seen this film, you’re missing out on a great story.

I’m not sure how well any of this is working, but this purpose has been served as is.

Anyone who has been visiting my blogcasa for any length of time knows that I very very seldom give any blogcasa space to television in any venue. That said, I do encourage anyone interested in good realistic drama that takes on serious issues to at least give the new show on FX, “The Bridge”, half a viewing chance. I caught the pilot on Hulu before it aired and was impressed enough to want to see the next episode. Fernandez’ piece linked above gives an in-depth look which says a lot of things that crossed my mind as I viewed the pilot. I was especially intrigued by the inclusion of the ongoing murders of young women and girls in Juarez which began in 1993 and now numbers over 450 (more). Yes, that’s right hundreds of women of the same physical description have been tortured, raped and murdered and no one in law enforcement has done anything about it. Hmm. Gee, I wonder what would be done if they were pretty little blonde girls found in the basements of their own homes?  Tiny beauty queens have had more news coverage than all the Women of Juarez together.

Okay FX has gotten my attention. Will “The Bridge” keep it enough to get me watching online? I don’t know. But I do know that something needs to be done to bridge the cultural, political, economic, spiritual differences between people living so close and yet so far apart in their minds. We need to value and care for each other no matter the color of our skins, our ages, our genders, and we need to do it now.  If this new show opens even one mind to some truth and reality, then it will have accomplished something of value.  I’m curious if television will find some of its potential power via this show. I’m going to  give it some of my valuable time if it does.
