for those of you who weren't glued to the academy awards last night, don't miss the chance to see the beautiful acceptance speeches from the music award, when the song from "once" won. this was one of the inspiring moments of the night. glen hansard's message in both the movie and his acceptance speech about making art and persevering is so amazing. marketa iglova was originally cut off by the move-it-along fascists and then was asked to come back out by john stewart and delivered a speech every bit as moving.
irglova's thanks and thoughts on independent musicians and hansard's exclamation "make art, make art!" are the best motivational speeches on sticking with your dreams that i have heard in quite a while. try out one of your dreams this week. happy monday.
