The Lord of the Rings II The Fellowship of the Ring
“The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost. For none now live, who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else, desire power. For within these Rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them, deceived. For another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the dark lord Sauron forged in scret a master ring to control all others. And into this ring, he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One Ring to rule them all…“

The Lord of the Wedding Rings: The Return of the King - iguana’s 2017 HELLsinki Worlds recap

This is it guys, the last big competition before the Olympics. So much potential for great skates, great disasters and great distress; this competition did not fail to deliver. Nor did the announcers, who were screaming out names and scores as if it were a wrestling match. And it was, in one way or another. Albeit a sparklier one. For a brief couple of days, we thought Javier Fernandez was gonna win his 3rd consecutive World title and I almost had those memes ready but at the same time I knew coming from behind like a wrecking ball was Yuzuru Hanyu’s specialty. To nobody’s surprise Evgenia Medvedeva broke a record; to everyone’s surprise, she only broke it in the long program. Meanwhile, Wenjing Sui and Cong Han’s blues for koolk brought the pairs crown back to China and Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir purple rained on Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron’s parade. Let’s start the recap!

Any Available Surface
The Mountain Goats

any available surface - the mountain goats

i waved at you when you hit the disappearing point
turned in for the night the next day around ten
i caught the sweet scent of your hair on my pillowcase
felt so much in love i felt like myself again
someday the only thing i wanna rely upon
is any available surface that you’ve rested your head on

back in the cave i traced the arc of our awakening
shimmering down in the darkness, like hidden gold
and i said my secret to myself out loud again
we may live to see miracles, if our faith can hold
someday the only thing i want to rely upon
is any available surface that you rested your head on

Plant of the Day
Friday 21 April 2017

A member of the Hamamelidaceae family
Fothergilla major (mountain witch alder) forms a rounded deciduous shrub. Here it was lighting up an edge of woodland setting with spiky white flowers. This plant favours humus-rich, moist but well-drained acid soil in sun or partial shade. The ovate dark green leaves turn brilliant colours in autumn.

She’d gone through eighteen years as the town psychic’s daughter, and now, in her senior year, she had already held every single possible conversation about that fact. She had been shunned and embraced and bullied and cajoled. She was going to hell, she had the straight line to spiritual nirvana. Her mother was a hack, her mother was a witch. Blue dressed like a hobo, Blue dressed like a fashion mogul. She was untouchably hilarious, she was a friendless bitch. It had faded into monotonous background noise. The disheartening and lonesome upshot was that Blue Sargent was the strangest thing in the halls of Mountain View High School.

Narrados en una canción
  • ARIES: I See Fire - Ed Sheran

‘‘And if we should die tonight
We shall all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
Calling out father
Oh, prepare as we will watch the flames
Burn auburn on the mountainside
Desolation comes upon the sky‘‘
‘‘Oh, should my people fall
Surely I’ll do the same
Confined in mountain halls
We got too close to the flames
Calling out father
Oh, hold fast and we will watch the flames
Burn auburn on the mountainside
Desolation comes upon the sky‘‘

  • TAURO: National Anthem - Lana Del Rey

‘’He said to be cool but I’m already coolest‘‘
‘‘It’s a love story for the new age
For the six pages
Want a quick sick rampage?
Whining and dining, drinking and driving
Excessive buying, overdose and dying
On our drugs and our loves
And our dreams and our rage
Blurring the lines between real and the fake
Dark and lonely, I need somebody to hold me
He will do very well, I can tell, I can tell
Keep me safe in his bell tower, hotel‘‘
‘‘I’m your national anthem
Boy, put your hands up
Give me a standing ovation
Boy, you have landed
Babe, in the land of sweetness and danger‘‘

  • GÉMINIS: Die Young - Kesha

‘‘Hearts out of minds running
Till we out of time
Wild childs looking good
Living hard just like we should
Don’t care who’s watching
When we tearing it up
You know- that magic that we got
Nobody can touch
Looking for some trouble tonight
Take my hand, I’ll show you the wild side
Like it’s the last night of our lives
We’ll keep dancing till we die‘‘

  • CÁNCER: Breathe Me - Sia

‘‘Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there’s no-one else to blame‘‘
‘‘Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me‘‘

  • LEO: Blank Space - Taylor Swift

‘‘So it’s going to be forever
Or it’s going to go down in flames?
You can tell me when it’s over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
Because you know I love the players
And you love the game‘‘
‘‘Because we’re young and reckless
We’ll take this way too far
It’ll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
But I’ve got a blank space baby’’

  • VIRGO: Solitaire - Marina And The Diamonds

‘‘Don’t wanna talk anymore
I’m obsessed with silence
I go home and I lock my door
I can hear the sirens‘‘
‘‘Hard like a rock, cold like a stone
White like a diamond, black like coal
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair‘‘
‘‘Solitaire
Something you consider
Rare
I don’t wanna be compared
Yeah
With that cheap shimmer and glitter
Solitaire‘‘

  • LIBRA:  Good For You - Selena Gomez

‘‘Now you say I got a touch so good, so good
Make you never want to leave
So don’t, so don’t
Going to wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to your heart beating‘‘
‘‘Because I just want to look good for you, good for you
I just want to look good for you, good for you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you‘‘

  • ESCORPIO: Control - Halsey

‘‘I’m bigger than my body
I’m colder than this home
I’m meaner than my demons
I’m bigger than these bones‘‘
‘‘And all the kids cried out,
“Please stop, you’re scaring me”
I can’t help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?‘‘

  • SAGITARIO: Single Ladies - Beyoncé

‘‘Now put your hands up
Up in the club, we just broke up
I’m doing my own little thing
I decided to dip
but now you wanna trip
Because another brother noticed me
I’m up on him, he up on me
Don’t pay him many attention
Because I cried my tears, for three good years
You can’t be mad at me‘‘

  • CAPRICORNIO: Misery Business - Paramore

‘‘Well I never meant to brag
But I’ve gotten what I wanted now
Well, It was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God does it feel so good
Because I got him where I want him now
And if you could then you know you would
Because God it just feels so…
It just feels so good‘‘
‘‘Second chances they don’t ever matter
People never change
Once a wh*re, you’re nothing more
I’m sorry that’ll never change‘‘

  • ACUARIO: Arabella - Arctic Monkeys

‘‘Arabella’s got a seventies head
But she’s a modern lover
It’s an exploration she’s made of outer space
And her lips are like the galaxy’s edge
And her kiss the color of a constellation
Falling into place‘‘
‘‘My days end best
when the sunset gets itself behind
That little lady
Sitting on the passenger side
It’s much less picturesque
Without her catching the light
The horizon tries
But it’s just not as kind on the eye‘‘
‘‘Just might’ve tapped into your mind and soul
You can’t be sure‘‘

  • PISCIS: Paradise - Coldplay

‘‘When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of paradise
Paradise, paradise, paradise
Every time she closed her eyes‘‘
‘‘Life goes on, gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She’d close her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she’d fly‘‘

Duraznito-.
