Let's go!

Let’s go!

This photo was taken in front of the Louis Vuitton store on 5th Avenue in New York City.

Taking advantage of the post title, I leave you a beautiful dance song also titled “Let’s go”,

Let’s Go” is a song by Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, featuring vocals from American recording artist Ne-Yo. The track was released in the United Kingdom on 22 April 2012 as the third single from Harris’s third studio album 18 Months (2012). On 29 April 2012, precisely a week after its release, “Let’s Go” debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart for the week ending dated 5 May 2012— marking Harris’ third consecutive number two hit.

As of July 2012, the song has sold 376,000 downloads in the United States. It also appeared on the deluxe version of Ne-Yo‘s fifth studio album, R.E.D. The song received a nomination for Best Dance Recording at the 55th Grammy Awards held in February 2013.

The song was used for a Pepsi and Pepsi Max advert that features Lionel Messi, Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Wojciech Szczęsny, Frank Lampard, Sergio Agüero and Jack Wilshere.

NYC Grand Central Terminal

NYC Grand Central Terminal

Grand Central Terminal (GCT; also referred to as Grand Central Station or simply as Grand Central) is a commuter (and former intercity) railroad terminal at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, United States. Built by and named for the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger rail travel, it covers 48 acres (19 ha) and has 44 platforms, more than any other railroad station in the world. Its platforms, all below ground, serve 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower, though the total number of tracks along platforms and in rail yards exceeds 100.

The terminal serves commuters traveling on the Metro-North Railroad to Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess counties in New York State, andFairfield and New Haven counties in Connecticut. Until 1991, the terminal served Amtrak, which moved to nearby Pennsylvania Station upon completion of the Empire Connection. The East Side Access project is underway to bring Long Island Rail Road service to the terminal.

Do you want to talk to my snake?

Do you want to talk to my snake?

 

Tell me wise but I never would bring a snake into my house. If you decide otherwise you should first follow the advice of Pet Snakes.

Before you even think of bringing a snake home you need to know as much as you can about them…

At minimum you want to be able to answer basic questions like these:

  • How big will it get?
  • How big of a cage does it need?
  • What does it eat?
  • Do snakes have any diseases?
  • Does it need special lighting or heating?
  • How much will the snake and everything else cost?

The point isn’t to know just answers to a few generic questions but to know as much as you possibly can.

Extracted from “Convincing your family about a pet snake” by Pet Snakes who says about them:  “We are just a few like-minded folks who enjoy learning about and discussing snakes. We love all reptiles, but the purpose of our blog is to focus on snakes”.

Stairway to heaven

Stairway to heaven

Stairway to Heaven” is a song by the English rock band Led Zeppelin. It was composed by guitarist Jimmy Page and vocalist Robert Plant for the band’s fourth unnamed studio album, (see Led Zeppelin IV (1971)). The song was voted #3 in 2000 by VH1 on their list of the 100 Greatest Rock Songs. It was the most requested song on FM radio stations in the United States in the 1970s, despite never having been released as a single there. In November 2007, through download sales promoting Led Zeppelin’s Mothership release, “Stairway to Heaven” hit #37 on the UK Singles Chart.

 

Stairway to Heaven

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
’cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the may queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
The piper’s calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven

Face

Broken man

There are hints of a past life, a possibly known identity for the Broken man. However, pretty much everything here is speculative in nature. We are mere observers.

The Broken man carries a briefcase of unknown content. Perhaps the answer is within.
His face reveals much more than suffering. Anyway his eyes forward thinking, tells us that he does not want to desist in his efforts, despite his precarius situation…

This is my contribution to this Week Photo Challenge: Face

One: Number 31, 1950

Jackson Pollock. One: Number 31, 1950

This is one of three wall-size paintings that Jackson Pollock made in the summer and autumn of 1950. He began by laying canvas on the floor and pouring, dribbling, and flicking enamel paint onto the surface, sometimes straight from the can or with sticks and stiffened brushes. He put holes in the bottom of paint cans, squeezed paint from a tube, and even used a turkey baster or stiff brush. The density of interlacing liquid threads of paint is balanced and offset by puddles of muted colors and byallover spattering. The pictorial result of this tension is a landmark in the history of Abstract Expressionism.

As he did for all his “drip” paintings, Pollock painted this work from above, with the canvas lying flat on the floor. “On the floor I am more at ease,” he said. “I feel nearer, more a part of the painting since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides and literally be in the painting.” Begun approximately three years after his first work in this style, One: Number 31, 1950 is evidence of the artist’s technical prowess. Calligraphic, looping cords of color animate and energize every inch of the composition, which seems to expand visually despite its enormous size.

Queensboro Bridge, Manhattan

Queensboro Bridge, Manhattan

The Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge – because its Manhattan end is located between 59th and 60th Streets – and officially titled the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, is a cantilever bridge over the East River in New York City that was completed in 1909. It connects the neighborhood of Long Island City in the borough of Queens with Manhattan, passing over Roosevelt Island. It carries New York State Route 25 and is the westernmost of the four East River spans that carry a route number: NY 25 terminates at the west (Manhattan) side of the bridge, which once carried NY 24 and NY 25A as well. The bridge is flanked on its northern side by the freestanding Roosevelt Island Tramway. The bridge was, for a long time, simply called the Queensboro Bridge, but in March 2011, the bridge was officially renamed in honor of former New York City mayor Ed Koch.
