Line(s) of the Day #AllMyFriends

all my friend single

And if it’s crowded, all the better
Because we know we’re gonna be up late
But if you’re worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay

Taken from the song All My Friends by New York band LCD Soundsystem from their second studio album Sounds of Silver (2007). I really do love this song and featured it back in my post of Awesome Songs of Over 7 Minutes.

Line(s) of the Day #StrangerThings

maxresdefault-680x463

Nobody normal ever accomplished anything meaningful in this world.

Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) in the Netflix smash Stranger Things (2016 – ). Set in 1983 and fuelled with 80s nostaliga, it tells of a geeky set of boys in a small town who encounter mysterious forces when looking for their friend, who suddenly goes missing.

Line(s) of the Day #SomeThings

Some things aren’t meant to be forgotten.

The first memory we hold
The poignant story we were always told
The first kiss we received
The lovely fantasies we once believed
The fantastic gifts we got
The ice creams we had when hot
The first person we had a crush on
Those neighbours with whom we always got along
The first difficult obstacle we got through
The wise words we’ve always listened to.

I wrote this poem a while ago and came across it when tidying my room and looking through some old papers. Hope you like it.

Line(s) of the Day #Gladiators

Gladiators TV show

Do you feel the power of the Gladiators?
Can you face the challenge of the champions?
Do you have the courage of a hero?
Do you have the will and the skill?

Taken from the opening lyrics to the theme tune of the Gladiators theme tune. The show about regular members of the public coming up against elite level athletes in different events became hugely popular. Debuting in the UK in 1992, the show featured 34 gladiators in its eight-year run, including my favourites of Wolf and Jet. A remake of the show in 2008 was a failure and cancelled after two series.

Line(s) of the Day #NoWomanNoCry

No Woman No Cry

Good friends we have, oh, good friends we have lost
Along the way, yeah!
In this great future, you can’t forget your past

Taken from the highly nostalgic and frequently covered song No Woman, No Cry by Bob Marley and the Wailers, from the studio album Natty Dread (1974).

Cinema Paradiso

Get out of here! Go back to Rome. You’re young and the world is yours. I’m old. I don’t want to hear you talk anymore. I want to hear others talking about you. Don’t come back. Don’t think about us. Don’t look back. Don’t write. Don’t give in to nostalgia. Forget us all. If you do and you come back, don’t come see me. I won’t let you in my house. Understand?

Alfredo (Philippe Noiret) in the film Cinema Paradiso (1988)
