#CjDrawsDay 14 - Penny Lane from Almost Famous (2000) Written and Directed by Cameron Crowe | April 6

“I always tell the girls never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. And if you never get hurt, you always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.”

Easier said than done. But awesome advice, especially when you’re in your early 20s, enjoying your youth. (Let’s insert the backdrop of the indie music scene filled with pseudo sensitive musicians or music loving boys that will eventually break your heart and cheap beer.)

Nothing compares to Almost Famous, imagine coming of age + rock n roll. So much philosophizing how it is better to stay uncool and not be friends with the rockstars, because indeed, they will ruin rock and roll.

If ever I’d give out my own advice, it would be, “Love the music, not the musician. The music will never leave.”

Although I can see myself now more in Lester Bangs than Penny Lane. But Penny Lane was magic.
