The lovers, the dreamers, and you....

Last night, I attended my first "Just Desserts," which is the year-end event of ICTV, VIC and WICB. I walked into Emerson Suites and it was WILD. There had to be 450 people in the room, laughing, shouting above the music (great DJ, wish I knew his name), and eating...well, that's why they call it Just Desserts.

Co-hosts Ed Cohen and Matt Corsetti were not only hilarious, they captured the essence of the moment without missing a beat: nostalgia, hope, and a real appreciation for and love of their fellow writers, directors, producers, know, it really was all about friends. Lifelong friends.

Corsetti closed the evening with a moving and powerful commentary on what his experiences in student media have meant to him. He urged -- no, demanded -- that his fellow VIC-, ICB-, and ICTV-ers make the most of life, take advantage of every opportunity, and take the time to be kind, thoughtful -- in short, the best they can be.

He closed his remarks with one of my favorite quotes, from everybody's favorite froggy sage:

Life's like a movie, write your own ending, 
Keep believing, keep pretending 
We've done just what we set out to do. 
Thanks to the lovers, the dreamers,
and you. 

My thanks to Matt, Ed, and the rest of the WICB, VIC and ICTV gang for allowing me to share their special evening.

The DJ was Artie K, and he did a great job. I agree.
