Inspiring Books, Movies, Music

Taking recommendations for books, movies, music that have really impacted peoples' lives. Suddenly I have this crazy urge like I have been told I have a year to live to see all the beauty in the world and not miss a thing.

These are some of the recommendations I have gotten so far.

Fight Club
Waking Life
Groundhog’s Day (My friend Lisa recommended I watch this. This is actually one of my fav movies....and definitely fitting for this. "Don't drive angry!")
American Beauty
Naughty Cal
Requiem for a Dream (Seen this before and although the stories are so amazing, it was so renching that I don't know if I could sit through it again)
Amelie (This is one that Im puttin on the list to watch, I love it, and its so inspirational about living and loving in the moment.

Very excited about my friend Kolleen's recommendations for music. Want to try to expand and connect to music that I might have overlooked)
