Cups (Pitch Perfect's "When I'm Gone") Anna Kendrick #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Anna Kendrick (1)
Introduction:
I believe that when a woman is given the chance to come to the defense of another woman, that is an opportunity that she should take in behalf of not only that woman; but in behalf of herself and all other women, everywhere. Men don't have low opinions of women because women are sluts and whores; but men have low opinions of women because they see how women compete with one another, pull one another down in order to rise above and backbite one another endlessly. There are men who have low opinions of women because of how women treat other women. They see that and they think, "What kind of a species can do that to their own species?" So if you really want the guy, why not get him by showing him what a true friend you are to your girlfriends? Or by showing him how happy you are for the good fortune of another woman and how much you admire her? And if he doesn't appreciate that then he doesn't deserve you! I know we've got a long, long way to go before we change the way our gender treats one another; but it's got to start somewhere and I suggest we start right now.” 
― C. JoyBell C.


It is sad that women do not make it a priority to support other women. It is as prevelent in the workplace as it is in a kindigarten court yard. It hurts!

First, I think it is important to thank everyone that responded the poem I posted yesterday title “A Smile” and inspired by a Tammy Cook. It was so overwhelming and wonderful…thank you again from the bottom of my heart and soul.

Second, I was watching VH1 this morning, yes, I am an avid fan and the video being presented this evening caught my attentio. I love the light hearted spirit it reflects in the theme. It is a theme song to the movie Cups. 

The movie synopsis is as follows:
College student Beca (Anna Kendrick) knows she does not want to be part of a clique, but that's exactly where she finds herself after arriving at her new school. Thrust in among mean gals, nice gals and just plain weird gals, Beca finds that the only thing they have in common is how well they sing together. She takes the women of the group out of their comfort zone of traditional arrangements and into a world of amazing harmonic combinations in a fight to the top of college music competitions. 

The point of the song is that Beca (Anna Kendrick) tried to make a fun environment in her work place and all the time dreaming about a life that would bring her happiness.

The song I am going to feature tonight is titled “Cups (Pitch Perfect's "When I'm Gone")
(2). The artist is Anna Kendrick. Have a great evening.

Cups
I got my ticket for the long way ‘round
Two bottle ‘a whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow, wha-do-ya say?

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

I’ve got my ticket for the long way ‘round
The one with the prettiest of views
It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers, it’s got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk, oh

You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Peace Diana
