Mensagem:  Marcelo really nailed the thing right on the head, check this:

The only thing I can DO is BE me, which, yes, is the same as BEING me is the only thing I can do.

I can do is BE me (focus on I)

Being me is the only thing I can do

Verb as subject of the sentence

But then Marcelo was hosed by Jazz.

I guess Jazz wasn't really jazzed by Marcelo.
