Line(s) of the Day #DanceAway

Dance away lyrics

Yesterday, when it seemed so cool
When I walked you home, kissed goodnight
I said, “It’s love”, you said, “Alright”
It’s funny how, I could never cry
Until tonight, when you pass by
Hand in hand with another guy
You’re dressed to kill and guess who’s dying

Taken from the song Dance Away by  English glam rockers Roxy Music from their sixth studio album Manifesto (1979). They’re such a great band and I’ve already referenced them with Jealous Guy and More than This.

Line(s) of the Day: 89 book

89 arsenal book

I’m thinking this is my time. I’m going to score this. Ray Houghton was so close. I had no idea he was that close. It was scary. My heart beats even now with the tension every time I see it. 

Michael Thomas describing the iconic moment he scored the goal that won the 1989-89 English league title in a 2-0 game away to Liverpool. The whole championship had come down to the final match, with Arsenal needing to win 2-0 to triumph on goals scored. Liverpool had not lost by two or more goals in their own stadium for four years and were the current champions. As the game went deep into stoppage time, Arsenal midfelder Michael Thomas is through on goal and in the famous words of commentator Brian Moore, “It’s up for grabs now…”

Claire: Listen, I don’t want to know anything about this surprise party but if you could just, erm, have it at mine this Friday at 7:30, that’d be great. I can organise it and act surprised but, if you could just, erm… Do you know what? Why don’t I just do it? I can organise it, do the food, act surprised, and just take it off your hands. I mean, I can see that you’re busy, so… –
Fleabag: OK, if you want.
Claire: Well, I don’t want to, but I think it would be easier for everyone if I could just…
Fleabag: OK.
Claire: I mean, I’ve done it, it’s done. It’s this Friday at 7:30 at mine.

Sian Clifford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in the utterly superb Fleabag (2016 – 2019), which in its 12 epiode run across two series won a host of awards, including six Emmys.

Line(s) of the Day #MayaAngelou

Maya Angelou

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.

The extraordinarily inspirational creative force that was Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014). You can find another example of her wisdom here.

Robin Williams Film8

Some people can’t believe in themselves until someone else believes in them first

Sean Maguire (Robin Williams) in the moving drama Good Will Hunting (1997), which won an Academy Award for the screenplay, as well as for Best Supporting Actor for the much missed Williams.

Line(s) of the Day #Parasite

Parasite film

Ki-taek: You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned. Look around you. Did you think these people made a plan to sleep in the sports hall with you? But here we are now, sleeping together on the floor. So, there’s no need for a plan. You can’t go wrong with no plans. We don’t need to make a plan for anything. It doesn’t matter what will happen next. Even if the country gets destroyed or sold out, nobody cares. Got it?

Song Kang-ho in the phenomenal dark comedy thriller Parasite (2019), that tells of a family’s scheme to infiltrate a rich family’s household. Made on a budget of the equivalent of just over $10m dollars, the South Korean film won four Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and has already made over $260m worldwide.
