Evening Of The Cat to  Djokovic vs Abrams Semi-Final 

The realms of the unexpected has opened its doors  

Shall we go in 


Evening Of The Cat (poem) 

He planned every moment for this
And hoped there was nothing amiss
To mar with his evening of bliss
A treasure he’ll long reminisce
-
But then came the sound
Of that darn cat next door
Making all kinds of noise outside
Not tonight please not tonight
-
His window he close to noise
And focuses back on his poise
With sound of sweet music he toys
Perhaps it will boost evening’s Joys
-
But that darn cat outside
He can still hear it’s hellish meowing
Crying to a lovers’ moon
The one he will be robbed of
-
Just maybe in time cat will leave
He still had enchantments to weave
His delight his senses retrieve
In moments with dream he will cleave
-
Still that incessant cat
Pestering festering his every last nerve
Until through window he shouted
Can’t you please shut up
And there was quite
-
Perfection now ready for her
With all that a heart could confer
He wondered what wonders would stir
When he made the one he loved purr
-
But insanity aroused
As the cat continued its nightmarish chorus
Causing him to retreat for a friend
And as he and the rifle opened the door
Who was waiting there

(Note: This poem was written with an open ending so that each reader may add their own imagination.)

To go with this poem/tale, what could be better than Rossini "Thieving Magpies"

The first puck ever used in a hockey game was a frozen piece of cow... (well, you know). A far step from 2015's Australian Open Tennis Tournament, in Melbourne, and world’s Tennis Champion Number 1 Novak Djokovic, from Belgrade, Serbia. Djokovic is matched up against WW II's very own M1 Abrams tank. The mastermind behind the match is filmmaker and visual effects expert Michael Shanks. Shanks used original footage from a match Djokovic played at this Australian Open Tennis Tournament where Djokovic just makes it to the finals. The video hit the internet before Djokovic defeated Switzerland's Stanislaw Wawarinka. After defeating the Abrams, Djokovic goes on to meet Andy Murray (OMG an easy to pronounce name). 
One last note: It was pointed out the M1 Abrams was a bad sport. "AUS OPEN 2015 - Djokovic v Abrams Semi-Final"

He Dreamed to Weather map goes crazy 

What is the problem with a dreamer or a weather map with a mind of its own 

The next step... 


He Dreamed (poem) 

He dreamed about a world in harmony
Where every child had food enough to eat
And brothers met with Joy amid the street
Together building world of what might be
-
He dreamed of discord that was in retreat
Where school were tools to possibility
And what hurt you might someday come for me
Together we would learn that we’re complete
-
This time to share to care is oh too brief
What wasted word another heartbeat takes
What last purpose was his soul now deemed
-
He dreamed about a world beyond belief
Where men were measured by the change he makes
And while the world was waiting there he dreamed


Once we learn our good dreams are memories waiting: The Piano Guys and Alex Boye "Paradise" 

Ready 

The sentence "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter in the alphabet. It's true. Just ask your computer. On second thought, you better not. It might get mad. Like the computer that controls the weather map on Phoenix, Arizona FOX News 10 did. It wasn't counting on weatherman Cory McCloskey's imagination and on the spot handling of the situation. Live and on the air, FOX News 10 did have a technical issue which Cory, totally impromptu, turned into a hilarious moment. The incident went viral and if you ask your computer you'll find news stations all over are talking about it. (Don't worry, your computer won't get mad at that question.) 
For now, just enjoy "Weather map goes crazy live on the air"

Ticking Ticking Ticking to America Start Your Engines 

Time - short or long, it is what it is 

All that is really important is: when our time comes, we are satisfied how we used it 


Ticking Ticking Ticking (poem) 

The time it was a ticking ticking ticking
It’s hands were now heard clicking clicking clicking
For man in bed
No tears to shed
He smiled instead
Removed from dread
-
A life had he
Each memory
A dream set free
For all to see
And to this truth he’s sticking sticking sticking
-
He made his name
A thing of fame
As people came
His thoughts to claim
And at them they are pricking pricking pricking
-
And as his time was ticking ticking ticking
In love he fell
We know her well
He rode Joy’s swell
Though heaven’s hell
He knew his heart was tricking tricking tricking
-
He’s now alone
Left on his own
A life atone
To his Unknown
This candlelight is flicking flicking flicking
-
Now children play
Another day
‘cause people say
He passed this way
When time it was a ticking


Let's spice this up with The Rolling Stones "Time Waits for No One" 

Plus 

It is accepted that 90% of all species that have become extinct have been birds. With that useless fact put to bed, No one can say Nick Offerman doesn't know how to use his time. Nick Offerman is a successful actor, writer, humorist, and highly acclaimed carpenter. He is widely known for his breakout role as Ron Swanson in the acclaimed NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation. A happy family man, Nick is also a bit of a musician and a big NASCAR fan. What a life! NBC found out about this individual, this life, and chose them to roll out NBC Sports' NASCAR season. In the humorous ad, Nick laments the current state of our country, before offering NASCAR as an antidote. 
Well, watch for yourself: "America Start Your Engines: NASCAR on NBC featuring Nick Offerman"

Perfect to The Mother ‘Hood Official Video 

Those who seek perfection are often disappointed 

Yet there exists a something much more natural and much better 


Perfect (poem) 

Those perfect dreams
Those perfect themes
Those perfect lies on movie screens
-
Perfect days
Perfect ways
Perfectly bidding till nothing remains
-
Perfect solutions
To perfect confusions
Perfectly happen at others command
-
We’re perfectly lost
We’re perfectly tossed
We’re perfectly drowning in tide pool we’re caught
-
Perfect perfect
Missing respect
Tales to protect
Which might affect
Paths we select
Freedom’s effect
-
Worst of all
How it affects how I love you
Freely and completely
-
No one to reflect
No milestone to set
No limitations we might regret
-
Just your perfect smile
To our perfect while
And maybe the rest will follow in style


Enjoy this song. down the same theme: Leonard Bernstein "Candide - Make Our Garden Grow" 

Plus 

It is estimated up to 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily: Fear not. Most of these are corrected. MOST!? Let's take our minds off this useless fact by going to a park where different styles of parents are about to meet. Did I say meet? I should have said confront. We all have our own style of parenting. Sadly, there are those who are quick to judge and are happy to give their advise. Similac, a brand specializing in infant care, released a new campaign video that has been getting a lot of attention. It's funny, it's touching and it sends a fantastic message about parenting. Even more, at the "end of it all" something wonderful is discovered. 
Enjoy one more step beyond perfection: "The Mother ‘Hood Official Video"

Song Of The Lost Lover to Obama Mixtape - State of the Union 

A lover deal with a lost love - A democrat deals with republicans 

What a world - What a mixed up edition (Or is it?) 


Song Of The Lost Lover (poem) 

Beyond the frozen moments of her pain
There by the swollen river of her tears
As sorrow’s shroud now steal each sweet refrain
It feeds upon the sadness which it hears
-
Beyond remorse in valleys of her fears
Where heart has lost its reason to sustain
And shadows of an ending never nears
It breeds the hopeless fields whose flowers drain
-
Was it the dream who swore to hold her tight
Whose promises mere words toward her dismay
-
Was it the song which scented her delight
Then cast despair to lead her soul astray
-
Drift on fair princess whispered through her night
Tomorrow’s dawn is miseries away


To go with this dark sonnet here's: Holly Smith singing "A Lover´s Tale"  

To 

In 1920 Socialist Eugene Debs received 920,000 votes for president of the United States. Yet he ran his entire campaign while in jail. Who cares? Who cares? Perhaps some of the people who still watch the State of the Union address. But why should anyone? The press has made such a "three ring circus" of it all, just for the sake of entertaining us. At what cost? At what cost? Maybe the Gregory Brothers: Michael, Andrew, Sarah, and Evan, makers of Schmyoho and "Songify" have stumbled onto something. "Our world may be better as a song." By now, there are plenty of viral videos of our President singing. But there is something more to this video. 
If it were only so. If it were only so. "Obama Mixtape: 1999 - Songify the News Special Edition"

Listen Lightly to Adorable daddy daughter standoff 

Lovers gather near, for we start in a world of romance 

And end in the realm of cuteness and laughter 


Listen Lightly (poem) 

Let’s listen lightly as I hold you tight
To song which seems to echo through our heart
One wonders where such music has its start
A dream perhaps beyond the edge of sight
-
A whispered wish which waits to play its part
This melody of memory’s delight
A tune to turn dark doubts to something right
And magic moments made for us to chart
-
So many tears have passed to bring us here
Such sounds of sorrow bared beneath the moon
Such sacred secrets shared with stars above
-
But here we hold to hopes a bit more clear
Like dancing daisies taken by a tune
Let’s listen lightly to the song of love


A little mood music to go with that: Quincy Jones "The Secret Garden" 

Now let's go to those realms 

It has been argued that 90% of New York City cabbies are recently arrived immigrants. But that is not what this standoff is about. Meet Garth and his 15 month old daughter Lola. They are having one of many to come father daughter discussions... standoffs. At first, I thought Lola was trying to make a point about Garth's questionable choice in pajamas (his not hers). But maybe she is standing on the table to help them see eye to eye. As it turns out, it was just a exorcise in cuteness. 
And in the end, Lola gets the hug she deserves. "Adorable daddy/daughter standoff"

A Distant Shore to Au Naturel 

Cleanse well our minds in tankas of love, spirituality and fulfillment  

Before we are dragged through the realities of advertisement  


A Distant Shore (tanka) 

On a distant shore
Hand in hand he is with her
On a night like this
Close your eyes and you’ll see them
Drift into another kiss



Gazing The Dreams (tanka) 

He spent such moments
Gazing the dreams in the sky
There by the river
Which ran through fields of flowers
Blossoming for attention



Sail On Beyond (tanka) 

Sail on precious time
Beyond the meaningless shores
Flowers forgotten
Empty the river of tears
And find your way back to me


One last rational thought via music: William Orbit "Time To Get Wize" 

Now WOW 

Elvis Presley loved Hamburgers (specifically Cheeseburgers) and would eat up to eight in one sitting. According to legend, his favorite burger joint was the Gridiron Restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee. What do hamburgers have to do with an "all natural" girl strolling around busy farmer’s market. The Au naturel girl is Guess' top model Charlotte McKinney, who some say is the next Kate Upton. She is promoting the all new, all natural ingredients of Carl's Jr, burgers. She is also promoting and proving sex sells. What Carl's Jr and Charlotte McKinney didn't know or foresee was a voice would rise from the "Twitterverse". It seems some people think the burger chain is saying, with this ad, women are no better than meat. Carl's Jr. is looking into the controversy and may change the commercial.
So here is the realities of advertisement; "AU NATUREL - The All-Natural Burger Extended Director's Cut"
