Summary:You and Peter had been best friends for years, and after a issue with a vaccination for you and a spider bite for him, you two became New York’s newest vigilantes. After coming home from school one day after a horrid Calculus test and a quick stop by some garbage cans, you get the opportunity of a lifetime.
As a child, you
never thought that boys like Peter even existed. Of course, after reading
hundreds of books about a young girl meeting “the perfect boy”, you had hope.
You imagined that one day, you’d meet someone who was sweet, thoughtful,
intelligent and kind. However, going to a high school dance in tenth grade gave
you a much needed reality check.
seeing groups of boys from your high school, Midtown High, jumping around and
making stupid inappropriate gestures and dance moves, you came to the
conclusion that those perfect boys in the books were complete fiction. All the
boys your age were immature children with raging hormones. Well, everyone
except your best friend, Peter Parker. But that’s the thing. The
most “perfect boy” that you knew was your best friend, not a potential
had moved into his apartment building in the fourth grade and lived across the
hall from him. While trying to organize the boxes in the kitchen, you heard a
knock on the door and went to go open it. Your parents were hardly around since
they were always on business trips to Canada and Europe. At that point, they’d
been around to sign the papers and then left the next day, leaving you to
unload the moving trucks and put things away. Growing up without parents most
of the time made you very independent and you knew how to take care of
a big sigh, you blew the hair out of your face and walked over to the door.
Pulling it open, you saw a young boy about your age standing there with a plate
wrapped in foil in his hands. He gave you a nervous smile.
I’m brownies I-I mean I have Peter-wait no-I mean,” he stuttered, looking at
the floor and adjusting his grip on the plate.
“Well hello, Brownies nice to meet you. Want to come inside?” You said with a wink, opening
the door wider. He nodded vigorously and stepped through the door.
Back in the days on the boulevard of Linden, A Tribe Called Quest used to kick routines and the presence was fitting. It was Q-Tip, the abstract, and Phife Dawg, the 5-footer, who died Tuesday from complications resulting from diabetes. Now thousands of fans have signed a petition to make Phife’s legacy on that boulevard permanent.
Wipe your feet really good on the rhythm rug. If you feel the urge to freak, do the jitter bug. Come and spread your arms if you really need a hug- Can I Kick It?
One of my favorite artwork on an album and title of an album is A Tribe Called Quest’s “People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm”. Because if you think about it, each step of our life and everywhere we go; people we meet, the changing of weather, all have their own rhythm. Only if we listen, and pay attention closely, to those around us will we experience the beauty of diversity.
My sweatshirt with this album cover and a random picture I took of linden boulevard because why not?
Perhaps one of the best known sites of Berlin is Brandenburg Gate. This 18th-century neoclassical triumphal arch was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace. The gate, along with the avenue to the west, is one of the large public areas in Berlin where over a million people can gather to watch shows, major sport events shown on huge screens, or see the fireworks at midnight on New Year’s Eve. When visiting don’t forget to journey just beyond the gate to the boulevard of linden trees, which was the original pathway to the palace of the Prussian Monarchs.
Brandenburger Tor, Berlin, Eastern Germany. The Brandenburg Gate is a former city gate, rebuilt in the late 18th century as a neoclassical triumphal arch, and now one of the most well-known landmarks of Germany. It is located in the western part of the city center, at the junction of Unter den Linden and Ebertstraße, west of Pariser Platz. One block to the north stands the Reichstag building. The gate is the monumental entry to Unter den Linden, the renowned boulevard of linden trees, which formerly led directly to the city palace of the Prussian monarchs. It was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace. Having suffered considerable damage in WW2, it was fully restored from 2000 to 2002. During the post-war Partition of Germany, the gate was isolated and inaccessible immediately next to the Berlin Wall; the area around the gate featured most prominently in the media coverage of the opening of the wall in 1989. Throughout its existence, it was often a site for major historical events and is today considered a symbol of the tumultuous history of Europe and Germany, but also of European unity and peace.
