are you sleeping? still dreaming? still drifting off alone.

glen and marketa just won the oscar for best song.

marketa's acceptance speech was...just... beautiful:
Hi everyone. I just want to thank you so much. This is such a big deal, not only for us, but for all other independent musicians and artists that spend most of their time struggling, and this, the fact that we're standing here tonight, the fact that we're able to hold this, it's just to prove no matter how far out your dreams are, it's possible. And, you know, fair play to those who dare to dream and don't give up. And this song was written from a perspective of hope, and hope at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are. And so thank you so much, to those who helped us along the way. Thank you.

here's their performance:

BEAUTIFUL. Thank you Megan for getting me into them. I am going to copy and paste this to my blog. (If that is ok?) And I just adore what she said also. Gosh, I love them!
