Line(s) of the Day #TheWire

The Wire

Maurice Levy: You are feeding off the violence and the despair of the drug trade. You are stealing from those who themselves are stealing the lifeblood from our city. You are a parasite who leeches off the culture of drugs… 
Omar Little: Just like you, man. 
Maurice Levy: Excuse me? What? 
Omar Little: I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It’s all in the game though, right?

Michael Kostroff and Michael K. Williams in the drama series ‘The Wire’ (2002-2008)

Line(s) of the Day #WhatHappensTomorrow

What Happens Tomorrow

Child, don’t you worry
It’s enough you’re growing up in such a hurry.
Brings you down, the news they sell you
To put in your mind that all mankind is a failure.

Taken from the song ‘What Happens Tomorrow’ from the album Astronaut by Duran Duran (2004)

Gr8at – Cute Animal Photos

After a slightly painful trip to the dentist today, I needed some adorable photos of animals to cheer me up. Here are my eight favourites from internet photos I’ve been sent from emails over the years. Which ones stand out the most to you?

Pink birdsToo cute for words. Makes you wonder what they are thinking.

Turtle

Maybe he’ll become the fifth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

kitty-and-lion

Just what is he whispering…?

Penguins

That pose definitely gets my seal of approval.

Elephant

Makes you wonder what shampoo is being used.

Polar Bear

Hope someone has a towel nearby.

Rabbit

If the animal kingdom ever remakes Rocky…

Koalas

Not the most energetic of animals, but with poses like that they sure know how to work the camera.
