When French figure skaters Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres teamed up to vie for first place in the International Skating Union’s World Team Trophy 2017 competition in Japan, they blew away the competition and left fans marveling at their routine.

The duo have developed a bond on the ice that allows Vanessa to completely trust Morgan when he is flipping and spinning her around. The two are able to incorporate amazing partner work in their routines because of this.

For the competition in Japan, they skated to Disturbed’s rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic hit “The Sound of Silence.” Their synchronized skating and perfectly performed stunts matched magically to the music.

The mellow, almost eerie song coupled with their all black costumes lend a melancholy feel to what actually is a vibrant and stunning ice skating routine.

Their initial spinning jump is executed perfectly in tandem.

THEIR TIME IS UP

MAGNIFICENCE!! 

 ~Annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement~

I’ve always admired her. I followed her when she had her TV show. Her movies, her OWN Network.

So deserving of this award.

Listen and watch the introduction and her powerful speech.

The video speaks for itself.

~Full Transcript of Oprah’s Inspirational Golden Globes Speech~

Oprah Winfrey was the recipient of the Golden Globes‘ annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and gave a powerful acceptance speech during Sunday night’s ceremony. She was introduced by Reese Witherspoon, who compared their time together on the set of A Wrinkle in Time to a master class at Harvard Business School and a spiritual retreat all in one.

“Oprah’s hugs could end wars, solve world peace,” Witherspoon joked.

Once Winfrey took the stage, she delivered an inspirational, uplifting speech which discussed race and gender and the fight for equality. She also told the story of Recy Taylor, a woman who fought for justice in the Jim Crow era after she was raped.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men,” Winfrey said, bringing the audience to its feet.

“But their time is up.

Their time is up.”

Poem by a Friend …. “🐘 Elephants …. Magnificent, Majestic Noble Beasts 🐘 …. “!!

~~November 22, 2017~~ 

#BeKindToElephants

A POEM BY A FRIEND

When the Earth was barren and bare,

And man looked out on folly,

we killed for sport and not to eat.

We chose to start our end

By killing magnificent friend

Such noble beasts we destroyed them all

At our hand we sealed our end

or nature’s balance we tilt the scales

And doom we face for nature failed.

No food or drink when balance upset

For us a tomb and man kind loss

At last no more an upright man.

For in our place was heard a roar

From small jungle and oasis desert

Beast return to claim it all,

And free to roam their earthly land

Unhampered by the human man.

Hello!

My name is Heather Rooney.

I am an illustrator specializing in photo-realistic colored pencil and graphite drawings. Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail.

I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities, and entertainment professionals.

With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.

I finally caught up today!

I have been following this young girl since she first appeared in the AGT’s auditions and Mel B pressed the Golden Buzzard.

This child is amazing.

She’s very talented in so many ways. She sings (with her mouth closed, she’s a ventriloquist) and her charisma fills the room. Her performance in the quarter finals was so cute and incredible.

Take a look at her performance at the FINALS!

PRETTY, PRETTY PLEASE 

P!nk Perfection Past

Let’s go back in time. Another huge hit.

The message is so clear and so appropriate to things that are happening in our midst sometimes without our knowledge. Let’s heed her message.

We are perfect just as we are! And the swear word fits perfectly!! 

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Fuckin’ Perfect” (written as F**kin’ Perfect on the album cover and in the iTunes Store) is a song by American recording artist P!nk, taken from her first greatest hits album Greatest Hits … So Far!! (2010).

It was released on December 14, 2010 by LaFace Records, JIVE Records, and RCA Records as the album’s second single. Written by P!nk with Max Martin and Shellback, the track is a pop number which encourages people to accept each other for their true identities.

Pink has stated that the main inspiration behind the track is her husband, Carey Hart. Its music video, directed by longtime collaborator Dave Meyers, delivers a message against depression, self-harm and suicide. In November 2011, the song garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.

“Fuckin’ Perfect” peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Pink’s eleventh top-ten hit single in the United States.

You’re perfect, you’re perfect

‘Story of Sherwin’ …. ” ❤️ ‘In a Heartbeat’ tells a heartwarming story ❤️ …. Love is Love is Love …. “!!

HEARTWARMING STORY 

The heart wants what it wants.

I agree 100%.

Love is love is love is love …

HortyRex©

RBLine

In a Heartbeat tells the heartwarming story of Sherwin, a closeted middle school student, whose heart literally pops out of his chest to chase the boy of his dreams.

The long-awaited short film has been receiving loads of attention even before its release earlier July 31, 2017.

Creators Beth David and Esteban Bravo launched a Kickstarter last year for $3,000 to produce the film and were shocked when they went $11,000 over their goal. And it's easy to see why! Beautifully animated and scored, In a Heartbeat tugs at all the right heartstrings.

It was incredibly important for Beth and Esteban to tell a gay love story.

"Being gay is a subject that hasn't been wildly explored in computer animation," they explained in their Kickstarter video.

"We want to put out a message of love and self-acceptance to all the kids and young people who struggle to identify with LGBT+, just like Sherwin does."

The heart wants what it wants.

Watch the adorable short in the video below!

‘First They Came’ …. “Martin Niemöller …. 🇺🇸 Adaptation for America’s Current Administration 🇺🇸 …. “!!


FServeGL

~~July 27, 2017~~ 

FIRST THEY CAME

This poem is timeless and immemorial. It is so ‘on point’ that is has been used frequently to describe current happenings.

A friend sent me this site and a link to this modern adaptation. It’s befitting to the current reality of the nation.

All credit given to site, author and poet.

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

FIRST THEY CAME

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirl

“The famous poem by an anti-Nazi pastor, rewritten for Donald Trump’s America”

To see Donald Trump methodically lay into one group after another during the months of the presidential campaign has been to see Niemöller’s warning writ large across our screens.

But during all these months, I haven’t noticed much speaking out by one group in support of another.

It’s time for everyone to remember Niemöller’s words, and speak out in support of anyone who becomes the target of this hate-monger and his alt-right cohorts.

At the end of the day, Trump is coming for all of us.

I’m not British but I’ve been fascinated with the Royal Family since Princess Diana appeared on the scene.

After all the events during her marriage, eventual divorce and fatal death, I’ve followed their ‘happenings’.

This isn’t changing any time soon since Catherine and William married and started their family.

Best wishes, Little One!

Prince George’s official title and style is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

While his name was announced two days after his birth, he was, from birth, a British prince entitled to the style of Royal Highness under letters patent issued by his great-great-great grandfather, King George V in 1917, which gave the title and style to the eldest son of the Prince of Wales’s eldest son.

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

This song soothes my raw feelings. It calms me, it centers me.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one!

~Millions Of People Are Floored When Bon Jovi Sings “Hallelujah”~

Back in 2007, Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – and it’s been seen by more than 43 million people ever since!

He sings it with such emotion, it’s hard not to tear up and press repeat over and over and over again.

It seems every performer likes to put their own spin on the classic song. Bon Jovi’s version is more raw but just as compelling.

It doesn’t hurt that the song and its lyrics are pure genius.
