“I’m working on my backwards walk. Walking with no shoes or socks and the time rewinds to the end of may. I wish we’d never met then met today. I’m working on my faults and cracks, filling in the blanks and gaps. And when I write them out they don’t make sense. I need you to pencil in the rest. I’m working on drawing a straight line and I’ll draw until I get one right. It’s bold and dark girl, can’t you see I done drawn a line between you and me. I’m working on erasing you, just don’t have the proper tools. I get hammered, forget that you exist. There’s no way I’m forgetting this. I’m working hard on walking out, shoes keep sticking to the ground. My clothes won’t let me close the door, these trousers seem to love your floor. I been working on my backwards walk. There’s nowhere else for me to go, except back to you just one last time. Say yes before I change my mind. Say yes before I… You’re the shit and I’m knee-deep in it.”Backwards Walk- Frightened Rabbit

Conan The Great.
It’s the season for celebrity commencement speeches, and I’d have to say that my favorite so far has to be Conan O’Brien giving the Dartmouth commencement speech. He spends the first half of his speech making inside jokes that only Dartmouth students would understand and humorous commentary on today’s college-age society, but unlike some speeches that I’ve seen so far, Conan’s has a point. Every one knows the hardships that O’Brien faced in 2010 when he watched his dream of hosting The Tonight Show be taken away from him after only a few months. Conan, though, uses his “failure” and delivers a truly inspiring and useful speech to Dartmouth’s Class of 2011. He brought comedy into the lesson:
“Nietzsche famously said whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. What he failed to stress is that it almost kills you. Disappointment stings, and for driven successful people like yourselves it is disorienting. What Nietzsche should have said is whatever doesn’t kill you makes you watch a lot of Cartoon Network and drink mid-priced Chardonnay at 11 in the morning.”
and got serious when necessary:
“It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound reinvention.”
Watch the entire 24-minute speech below, and also the trailer for Conan O’Brien’s new documentary Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop, which documents his transition period after leaving The Tonight Show and was a huge hit at the South by Southwest Festival this past March.
