It's 30 years since it...

Hell's Kitchen

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a seat in the stand
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone.

I'm afraid I'd need a bigger cloud to cover my unmentionables...
strato-cumulus-nimbus the size of Indiana would do...

PS: is it because I look like Jim Carrey somehow?

I'm on a PF mood, no excuses here...

So, so you think you can tell heaven from hell,
blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil,
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead-role in a cage?

How I wish, How I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls, swimming in a fish bowl, year after year
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears
Wish you were here

Ahhhhh, sure as hell would like to post about a Floydian slip, but this new approach to Freud as an enjoyable reading rather than a mind-altering one is worth a try :-)

You know that I care what happens to you
And I know that you care for me
So I don’t feel alone
Of the weight of the stone
Now that I’ve found somewhere safe
To bury my bone
And any fool knows a dog needs a home
Want to write in Elvish fonts....? Now you can do it
Check Writing With Elvish Fonts tutorial...

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky

Foi recentememte que acabei de ler este conto, e agora recebo esta excelente notícia:
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
- Remake do clássico de Norman Z. McLeod (1947), com Jim Carrey no mesmo personagem que Danny Kaye protagonizou. Realização de Steven Spielberg.

El Museu Picasso de la Ciudad Condal presenta hasta el 26 de octubre un recorrido cronológico
por la obra grabada del artista a través de una selección de obras procedentes del fondo
del museo datadas entre 1904 y 1968...

The MNAC (Museo Nacional d'Art de Catalunya) is running a very interesting
exposition entitled "La fascinación de Oriente. Tesoros asiáticos de las colecciones reales españolas".
Under Phillip II, Spain and Portugal united in one and the Iberian peninsula gained
unprecendented and privileged access to Japan, China and the Phillipines using the two
routes: from Manila to Seville and from Lisbon to the East Indies...
Worth seeing it...

The Guardian is running
a section on short stories from "leading authors"
(you may make what you will of that)...
