.: Sometimes to lose is to win

The Wiz is an American musical adventure film released by Universal Pictures on October 24, 1978. An urban reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s classic 1900 children’s novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, featuring an entirely African-American cast, The Wiz was loosely adapted from the 1974 Broadway musical of the same name. The Wiz was a critical and commercial failure. Despite its initial failure, the film became a cult classic, particularly among African-American audiences, Oz enthusiasts, and fans of Michael Jackson.


It is ironic that even the lyrics of this song, apprently say “you can’t win”… and yet, sometimes you win even if you lose.

You can’t win, you can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game
People keep saying things are going to change
But they look just like they’re staying the same
You can’t win, get over your head
And you only have yourself to blame

You can’t win, chile (You can’t win chile)
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

You can’t win, the world keeps moving
And you’re standing far behind
People keep saying, things will get better
(Just to ease your state of mind)
(So you lean back)(And you smoke that smoke)
(And you drink your glass of wine)

Sayin’ you can’t win, chile
You can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

So what’s the moral of the story ? “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” I know, somebody hates this proverbial phrase… (ok, this is weird: please don’t watch this video unless you’re a fan of Portal or you love Cave Johnson voice)

but what I mean is that you must play with the cards you’ve got, and find a way to turn to lose into win.

What all this has to do with some food ? well, remember that mayonnaise (so popular!) was probably invented during a siege and the cook did it with the only things he had in there.

I just want to encourage those of you that think they can’t cook. And… I’ve taken you here even if I just made some panini with ham and mozzarella 😀
