In my scarecrow dreams,
When they smash my heart into smithereens,
Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete.
Be a cartoon heart,
Light a fire, a fire, a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart.
We’ll run wild,
We’ll be glowing in the dark
Coldplay has many, many hit songs. Some are slow and emotional and others build to a celebratory pinnacle. “Charlie Brown” combines both of these dynamics for a sound (and reaction) of inspiring brilliance.
This is especially true live in concert…
I was lucky enough to see this Coldplay tour in the picturesque setting of The Hollywood Bowl in May of 2012. The environment was just like the video above. It was crazy awesome.
Have an Animated Week!
On July 5, 2015, the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) made a declaration of independence of their own from the rest of the competing teams as the clear champions in women’s soccer after dominating Japan 5-2 in the 2015 World Cup Final. Carli Lloyd sprinted out of the gates for a spectacular hat trick in the opening 15 minutes. Earning their third title and first since the unforgettable penalty kick shootout victory in 1999, the USWNT made a statement to the world and inspired young girls everywhere.
Fittingly, the women were treated to a ticker tape parade earlier today in New York City, a first for a women’s sports team.
It was a beautiful moment for the beautiful game.
Hamingjusamur Nýtt Ár!
(“Happy New Year!” in Icelandic)
The best part about tonight is how the entire world celebrates New Year’s Eve. If there was ever a day to literally hang out in Space, it would be tonight/today. The colors seen in the night sky will represent every color in that gigantic Crayola crayon box from our elementary school days.
“Was that firework orange with twirling turquoise?”
It’s a continuous stream of fireworks, light shows, boisterous music, confetti, happiness, kissing, goofy hats and crowds of people joyously dancing in the streets, homes and in hotel lobbies that’s a spectacular display of hope and the infinitely possible. Welcoming in the new year is a universal truth that’s proven in every language in every corner of the globe. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to fully report on each city’s unique festivities. Fortunately though, there are plenty of places to choose from. As it’s become commonplace, Bing posts a picture each day that dazzles the eye. Today was no exception.
When my family went to Iceland, we were there for New Year’s! Luckily, there’s a photo of what it would be like to be on the pristine glacial lake of Jökulsárlón, Iceland, which is a better sight than the much-hyped, expansive collection of celebratory bonfires around Reykjavík we were told about…
Here’s to a Perfectly Picturesque 2015!
