I haven’t been part of a Blogathon for quite a while now. In the past I’ve really enjoyed being part of features like the Back to School, The Top 10 Most Iconic Female Character and Song and Screen series ones, but I have been too busy for any ones recently.

Line(s) of the Day #Disintegration

The Cure Pictures of You

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures
Are all I can feel

Taken from the song Pictures of You by The Cure, from the album Disintegration (1989). The album has long been one of my favourites.

Line(s) of the Day #Reality

Lost Frequencies reality

Hate will make you cautious, love will make you glow.
Make me feel the warm, make me feel the cold.
It’s written in our stories, it’s written on the walls.
This is our call, we rise and we fall.

Taken from the song Reality by Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies featuring Janieck Devy. Happy birthday Nicola 🙂

Morpheus (Samuel L Jackson) in the iconic sci-fi action film The Matrix (1999), famous for “bullet time” and its view of a simulated reality.
