Zidane’s interview for Mexican sports newspaper ‘Récord’ | February 10, 2016

The Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane, sat down with Record Mexico for an interview in which he talked about his decision to become a manager, the endless Cristiano-Messi debate, his playing philosophy and his future with Los Blancos.

Is Messi the greatest player in the world?
“Cristiano Ronaldo is the best. People can say what they like about Cristiano Ronaldo, but in his heart he’s a good person. Messi is the rival and that rivalry is great for the footballing spectacle, it’s what the fans want to see”.

The decision to become a manager
 “I never thought that I’d be a manager. When your playing career ends all you want to do is spend time with your family. I always liked being on the pitch, it’s what I knew how to do. Everything else was foreign to me".

Temptation to name yourself in the team
“Of course I’d love to play but that can’t happen. I can’t be out there on the pitch. It’s a different buzz standing in the dugout. Now the pressure I deal with is different to being a player”.

Do you have a better understanding of your predecessors now?
“Absolutely. Now it’s me who deals with all the stress”.

How do you prepare for games?
“The main thing is getting my message across to the players. I only give them two or three instructions because they’re extremely professional. I have a sensational group of players, I’m delighted with the work they’re doing".

Mental strength
“It counts for 80-90%. Being focused is the most important thing there is. I tell my players to focus because they only have ten years of playing time left. Playing for Real Madrid is a dream come true, we’re all extremely lucky to be here. We have to be aware of that".

Does the manager really matter?
“Yes. It’s always the manager’s fault if the team lose. But you have to accept that responsibility, with all the good and bad that comes with it".

i think one of greatest feelings experienced in the pokemon fandom is knowing that a new pokemon generation is officially on the horizon.

it happens every generation–like you have this constant RUSH FOR NUMEROUS MONTHS ON END about all these new creatures being revealed and how the pokemon world is expanding with an unknown, vasy reigon and the hype awaiting a new game release 

i mean being shown all the beautiful new artwork/graphics and figuring out translated names after you’ve been using the japanese ones for months and the transition is so weird yet SO EXCITING it’s like you’re being introduced to the new pokemon all over again


it’s one of the BEST times to be apart of pokemon

you just can’t beat it ;v;

Love Hurts

my heart can’t take it. I wish I was numb to emotions. I wish I’d never fallen in love, and I wish I never fall in love again because it’s hell. it’s the most beautiful, greatest feeling but it’s the most evil thing in the world. have you ever given someone 110% and gotten nothing but shit in return? have you ever had sleepless weeks while the other person is all cozy in their beds? have you ever starved yourself for days on end, in hope you’d waste away, because no one was made for this much pain. fuck love, it’s an addiction just like anything else and it leaves vulnerable to unimaginable pain. :(

“It’s funny,” he tells her, “you can have the greatest worldly thoughts of the people you truly love.”

“Only to have them as the greatest lesson of your life in the end.”

I find it incredibly annoying and downright disrespectful when people who have tickets to shows on Broadway get upset because the original person isn’t performing that day or say to others “don’t go on this day because so-and-so isn’t there” or “I’d be so mad if I had to see it with the standby”. Like cmon guys that’s really not cool, these people are all extremely talented and I get that it would be awesome to see it with the original cast but at the end of the day you still get to say “yeah I saw that on Broadway” and it shouldn’t matter who wasn’t there performing. What matters is the experience you have of seeing a show in the “greatest city in the world.” Get over yourself

There is a place for sorrow and sadness in the life of faith. After all, there is a Book of Lamentations in the Bible. But this Book of Lamentations has one of the greatest statements on joy and hope you’ll find anywhere: “But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (3:21-23).

So.... Yeah. Maybe "borrowing" half of some ones soul (you know the thing that keeps them from being an unfeeling sadistic psycho) and then sleeping on top of them wasn't the greatest idea, huh Chara? You're lucky its the frying pan instead of the kitchen knife.

At the time it was written, in the middle of grunge and all that, I remember Nirvana had a tune called ‘I Hate Myself and I Want to Die.’ Which I was like: ‘Well I’m not fucking having that.’ As much as I like him (Cobain) and all that shit, I’m not having that. I can’t have people like that coming over here, on smack, fucking saying they hate themselves and they want to die, that’s fucking rubbish. And I’m not saying it was written directly as a retort to that, but that was my thinking was ‘fuck that man, kids don’t need to hear that kind of nonsense.’ Seemed like to me he was a guy who had everything and was miserable about it, and we had fuck-all and I still thought that getting up in the morning was the greatest thing ever because you didn’t know where you’d end up at night. I mean, we didn’t have a pot to piss in, but it was great.

You bring a new kind of feeling in my life. I hesitated at first because I was badly hurt before, but you made me believe that you’re different from them. You shed off my worrying and doubts. You help me to pick my pieces and build my walls up. You were with me at my weakest point. You waited for me to recover from the past and move on. You made me believe in fairy tales and happy endings again. You made the butterflies in my stomach glide once more. Thank you for making me feel worth having and fighting for. You made every day a blissful moment. I never thought someone like you will come in my life, stop and be with me for a while. I know, this feeling will last for a lifetime. It was truly an unexpected event that I won’t forget for the rest of my day. Trusting and loving you are the greatest decisions of my life and I’ll be forever grateful that I met you.

You took a step back but before you had a chance to react, he was punching you, brass knuckles in hand, straight in the head and everything suddenly became nothing.

Everything gradually started to feel real; to feel alive again as you slowly regained consciousness. You shifted your arms and legs, a slight grown escaping your mouth as you felt your temple throbbing with pain. That’s when you remembered what had happened.

And, when you’ve had enough of running into dead ends all the time, you should remember that dead ends aren’t a bad thing. They’re just an indication that you need to turn back around. So, turn back around. Don’t settle for being lost. Besides, your life isn’t meant to end. It’s a road trip - all of it, and the greatest thing is is that you don’t have to travel alone. You get to bring people along, and while taking Route Recovery, that is what you’ll especially need: good company. Don’t get caught driving with a DIY, either - the mentality that you can do this process of healing all by yourself every single time you get hurt. There will be moments when you need to lean on a friend.

Don’t forget to take your exits every once in a while to fill your stomach. Eating is crucial to your health, no matter what your diet is. So, order a little bit for your stomach, and a little bit for your soul. Then, make sure you leave a big tip afterwards. Giving is a part of healing.

And, if you’re confused about where to go next, go right. Nothing can go wrong if you turn the right way. However, don’t expect that road to be the smoothest. It might be the narrowest of them all, in fact, but it is a promise to lead you to the place where you need to be.  

Remember: the only reason why you should look into your rear-view mirror is to help you better adjust your position for the road ahead of you. Other than that, don’t look back. How could you drive successfully if you’re only looking at what’s behind you? And, notice how small the rear-view mirror is compared to the windshield revealing your travels. That’s because looking back is not nearly as important as moving forward.

Lastly, be safe on the road. Don’t run the red lights just because you’re feeling risky. Slow down when you encounter a part of yourself that needs construction. Reroute your map if you encounter a dead end. And, most importantly, always have your license with you. You will need to remind yourself that you’ve already passed the test, and if you’ve already passed the test, then you are completely equipped to take on the roads advanced in difficulty. Yet, even then, you should keep in mind that though you are prepared for the paths ahead, they won’t get any easier unless you decide to change your tires.

This was so much fun to draw! And with a steady supply of mullet in the fandom I know I’ll always be able to look back on mankind’s longest-running affront to god and have a good laugh, post-Valentine End Times or no. Kudos to @immaplatypus​, @aspiring-procrastinator​, @taccoman​ and everyone else who has dedicated so much time and sanity to bringing back the 70′s greatest tonsorial mistake.

Venus in Virgo

What they find attractive: intelligence, sincerity, diligence, patience, traditional, classy, thoughtful, self assured

If your Venus Sign is Virgo, relationships are difficult for you.

You are a perfectionist when it comes to love - nothing is ever good enough. You have high standards, you expect a lot of others but especially of yourself. You are private and often quiet.

You are often repulsed by the messiness of relationships. You feel anxious about letting others into your life because you aren’t sure if they’ll let you down, judge you, or if they simply won’t understand. You would rather stay safe than take such a huge risk.

Despite this, you secretly long for the fairy tale romance, for someone to sweep you off your feet or for you to dote on.

Your greatest weakness is your finickiness, you hardly ever want to give anyone a chance and end up alone.

Your greatest strength is your complete devotion once you do find that perfect partner.

Venus Falls in Virgo making the individual more concerned with appearances than character.

At the end of my set last night, I told the room (in tears) that I love what I do. My job is my greatest joy in life and I know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I could not do it without you. For that, I am forever indebted. Thank you for giving me this gift. Thank you. Photo by @nemomiller.
