Remember that movie in which Jack Black was a teacher and building a rock band and when a little black chubby girl asked to be a singer he only said “sure! let me hear you” and the moment she started using her beautiful voice his lit up like all of his dreams came…
I also love how he gave everyone a chance, and a job, but I particularly love that he made sure they each had their own place where they fit. And their own personal knicknames that fit.
And don’t forget how he took Mr.Cool’s (Lawrence’s) insecurities and was like no, you’re awesome, lets do a cool handshake and name you something that reinforces how you want to be perceived. Not “well if you tried this…” Like no. You’re awesome you just gotta believe.
And my personal favorite part- he saw the kid getting bullied by his dad and did a lesson just for him. “What would you say to a bully?”
He gave each of them a voice. But he did it for the kid without singling him out. And then totally used the kids kickass song.
Jack Black genuinely cared about each of these kids. He was selfless. “Let’s play his song, it rocks so much harder” “all the cues are to the other song” dude you got this I know you can do it- yea ok.
I know it was just a movie but seeing so much about being yourself- and the part with Freddy (spazzy McGee) and him being like no don’t be like those losers because you think that’s how real rockers act. Act how you act. Don’t change to fit into something.
((And jack black flipping out over the demerits for all to see made me happy because seriously how shitty must you feel to know everyone can see how many mistakes you made next to the competition of stars. Self esteem killer much?)
Happening right now.
