The Notebook has the ability to reduce people to tears. This holds true even nine years after its release in 2004. Which may or may not have to do with the fact that The Notebook is what I consider to be one of the most celebrated romantic movies of all time. Oh and, of course, Ryan Gosling.
Ryan Gosling stars with Rachel McAdams as the star-crossed lovers Noah and Allie, convincing women everywhere that there is a Noah for all. This impossible standard was only further solidified when Noah (Gosling) begs Ally to stay with him– but only after a romantic kiss in the rain.
Unfortunately, according to an article on Time Magazine’s website, Gosling announced for Gosling fans everywhere, Gosling is taking a hiatus from acting.
Fortunately for women everywhere, BlinkBox, an on-demand British movie site, thought it would be a good idea to create the Gosline. The Gosline, a play on the words ‘Gosling’ and ‘Hotline’, is otherwise known as a help-line for those that need incentive to get through their day. ‘Incentive’ meaning Ryan Gosling.
The hotline works in the following way: the caller dials the number for the Gosline. Once the call is answered, Ryan Gosling gives the caller a motivational monologue.
One such monologue is the following, which can be heard in The Notebook: “It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I wanna do that because I want you. I want you. I want all of you, forever, every day. You and me, every day.”
That is one of the more powerful quotes that Ryan Gosling says throughout the movie. Not including what Gosling does that doesn’t include speech (i.e., the Gosling swagger, the intense gaze that he casts at his beloved Allison).
So, for those Gosling fans whose names aren’t Eva Mendez, that need that push to get through the day…this is a formidable alternative if that 5-hour Energy just is not cutting it.
