Wolf pup and Border Collie play date

Nikai the 9-week-old gray wolf pup and Faye the 13-week-old border collie pup had a playdate (filmed June 16, 2014)

The two cute canids met up so that Nikai could benefit from socializing with another puppy. Faye is a perfect date for him - patient, intelligent and boundlessly energetic - she likes to control the toys, but she constantly engages Nikai and is completely comfortable roughhousing with him.

Nikai is the newest adorable addition to the Wolf Conservation Center’s Ambassador Pack. Today, as an Ambassador wolf, Nikai helps WCC wolves Atka, Zephyr, and Alawa open the door to understanding the importance and plight of their wild kin. No longer a pup, Nikai has become a powerful presence in the fight to preserve wolves’ rightful place in the environment.

Carly Rae Jepsen - Tug of War (from her 2008 debut album of the same title)

Tug of war, sweet as sin
I let go; I fell in
Feel the pull call your name
I’m alone once again

You seem too good
Too good to be true
You’re holding me stronger
Stronger than I’m used to

Harry takes the long way home back from Louis’, the Jeep windows down, muggy air doing nothing to help his already frizzy curls. Every time he thinks about the way Louis leaned into his grip at the concert, his body warm and hands trembling when their fingers linked together, he feels short of breath, has to take another left turn when he should be taking a right. He’s spent ages thinking about what what it would be like to have Louis in his arms, often times tossing and turning in his bed, unable to sleep with how badly he wanted it, just a taste, just to have a little more than he was allowed. But thinking about it and wishing for it didn’t come anywhere close to the real thing, Louis sweaty and swaying to the music, his lips wet, eyes focused whenever he twisted up to look at Harry. And then, with his back pressed up against his front door, Louis stared at him like he wanted to be kissed, kissed by Harry, looking so Goddamn beautiful, and Jesus fucking Christ, Harry deserves a medal for being able to pull himself away from that, for not rushing the thing that occupies his mind more often than he’d ever care to admit. The idea of going home to an empty house when he feels this on edge is laughable, and he doesn’t end up pulling into his driveway until it’s well past three in the morning, nearly two hours after he dropped Louis off.

marco please can you explain your opinion on "tug of war" by paul? It's mclennon af but I just wanted to know your opinions on it! btw ilu & your blog looks hella fancy !

This song is beautiful. And in my opinion it’s like Paul, after John’s death, is trying to look at their relationship from another point of view. 

He’s not simply singing about his personal feelings towards John here, like he does in Here Today, he’s talking about what THEY both felt, and what they probably could have done together if John hadn’t died. 

When he sings:

We expected more
But with one thing and another
We were trying to outdo each other
In a tug of war

it makes me think of the 70s period, when with their little fights and angry songs written for each other, they were fighting a silly war and didn’t realise how stupid it was.

While in the second verse I feel that Paul dreams to sing and play with John when they’ll reunite in the afterlife:

In a time to come
In a time to come we will be
Dancing to the beat played
On a different drum

Something that they surely planned to do but never had the chance to reunite. Then sings that he shouldn’t complain about it, even if he can’t let this feeling go. The feeling of regret, that he was unable to clarify with John and come back to him in time, before his death. 

Though I know I mustn’t grumble
It’s a tug of war
But I can’t let go

And I love how he ends the song, saying that maybe one day people will discover what their relationship was really about.

In years to come they may discover
What the air we breathe and the life we lead
Are all about

Here you can listen to a beautiful remix done in 2015 of this song.

Wanderlust (Isolated Vocals, Center Channel)
Paul McCartney

End-1980/Late-1981: Paul writes a song after the one of the yachts (named Wanderlust) he sailed the Virgin Islands on during Wings’ London Town sessions in 1977.

PAUL: Oh where did I go wrong my love? / What petty crime was I found guilty of? / What better time to find a brand new day? / Oh wanderlust away / Light out wanderlust / Help us to be free / Light out wanderlust / Do it just for me / Wanderlust.
