Alright then, how about we add a little Hollywood to the mix.
Because we’ve all seen those big movie moments when our heroes face impossible odds but then after one stirring speech, with the music swelling in the background, everything changes.
You know, the kind of crescendo that as the credits roll, you’re ready to defeat a million Orcs armed only with some loose change and your car keys.
Well in my quest to bring you the best of the web, I’ve found the Mother, or more precisely the illegitimate offspring, of all those motivational speeches.
In fact it’s a finely selected pik n’ mix of 40 inspirational film speeches carefully spliced together to create a rousing new 2 minute opus.
But the editorial credit goes entirely to a blog site called Overthinking It, one that’s devoted to film & pop culture (and well worth a visit itself) and an author who must have spent dozens of hours putting it together.
Although he did have just the right material to keep him going.
So enjoy it, it’s good, and play it whenever necessary, because my friends sometimes we all need a little motivation like this.
As for myself, it’s time to finish the Christmas shopping and God help any who stand in my way.
