Takie cudeńka rysuje własnoręcznie moja koleżanka z pracy. Bierze udział w konkursie na podlinkowanej poniżej stronie, więc każdy lajk i komentarz się liczy. :-) W jej imieniu będę bardzo wdzięczny za pomoc.

I would be very happy to win the online drawing course, because I didn't attend to any kind of art school or course as I was discouraged by my arts teacher in primary school. Since then I've learned everything on my own by infrequent practice. I draw mostly portraits in pencil. I would like to try something new, but I'm not sure how to start. I don't have anyone to turn to for professional advice, and I would like to learn more about all the v...

By exploring foreign source material in a cultural vacuum, the Google Translate generation risks straying just as irretrievably from the message behind the meaning behind the words. In an age of instant transnational communication, it is our ability to communicate across cultural divides that separates us from the machine translators.
The UK education system is failing to produce enough students with foreign language skills, an indispensable tool for the study of history. Research published in June this year by the Confederation of British Industry revealed that one in five schools in England had a persistently low take-up of ...

Bardzo fajny kawałek. Pierwszy od dłuższego czasu wokalista kapeli prog-rockowej, który nie odrzuca mnie na wejściu. Szkoda tylko, że w Bydgoszczy najczęściej można ich posłuchać w Estrada Stage Bar, gdzie brzmienie przypomina trzytygodniowego banana rzuconego o betonową ścianę...

What, specifically, did Plant miss?
A lot of stuff I’d taken for granted. Particular hilltops and views around here and in Wales. Sadly for the readers, there still is a feeling I get when I look to the West [laughs]. I was dug-in in Austin for about 18 months, and when I came back home I saw how everything had grown. I thought, ‘Wow – everything is on the move except for me.’
“I was at WOMAD the other day,” says Robert Plant. “I walked past this guy sitting in a fold-out chair reading a music magazine, and it had a photo of us as nubiles. I said, ‘Who’s that, then?’, and he looked up at me. I had sunglasses on and my hair was up in a top-knot. He said, ‘That’s Led Zeppelin.’ I said, ‘Ah, okay – and who’s that guy?’ He said, ‘That’s Robert Plant.’ I said, ‘What does he look like now?’ The guy shrugged his shoulders, so...

A happy birthday to :

Paul Bruce Dickinson (1958), known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is best known as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Iron Maiden.

Dickinson began his career in music fronting small pub bands at school and university, including Styx (not the American band of the same name) in 1976, Speed, (1977–1978), and Shots in early 1979. He then joined the band Samson later in 1979, where he gained some popularity under the stage name "Bruce Bruce". He left Samson in 1981 to join Iron Maiden, replacing Paul Di'Anno, and debuted on their 1982 album The Number of the Beast. During his first tenure in the band, they issued a series of US and UK platinum and gold albums in the 1980s, resulting in Dickinson gaining worldwide fame, and becoming one of the most acclaimed heavy metal vocalists of all time.

Dickinson quit Iron Maiden in 1993 (being replaced by Blaze Bayley) in order to pursue his solo career, which saw him experiment with a wide variety of heavy metal and rock styles. He rejoined the band in 1999, along with guitarist Adrian Smith, with whom he released four subsequent studio albums. Since his return to Iron Maiden, he issued one further solo record in 2005, Tyranny of Souls. He is the older cousin of Rob Dickinson, former lead singer of British alternative rock band Catherine Wheel. His son, Austin, is the lead singer in metalcore band Rise to Remain.

Iron Maiden - Wasted Years 
From the album : Somewhere In Time (1986)

"Wasted Years" is the fourteenth single released by Iron Maiden and the first from their Somewhere in Time album. It is the only song on the album that features no synthesizers. Released in 1986, it was the first single solely written by guitarist Adrian Smith, who also sings backing vocals. It reached number 18 in the UK Singles Charts.

The song deals with subject of homesickness and alienation, as well as the negative aspects of the band's nearly year long previous tour and personal problems that Smith and other band members were going through in that period. At the same time the chorus suggests the idea that one should move beyond past troubles and look forward. The original working title was "Golden Years", as can be heard on numerous Somewhere on Tour bootlegs.

The cover depicts the band mascot Eddie's point of view as he flies a spaceship chasing the Doctor's TARDIS, which is seen in the distance on the middle-right of the picture just near the inner Nebula.  A similar Doctor Who reference can be seen on the back of the album's sleeve, where the Doctor's TARDIS is parked on a rooftop of the far left building "The Ruskin Arms" next to the "Rainbow" sign.

As the album's sleeve, the single's front cover is also full of visual references to the band's earlier songs and albums. The four small screens on Eddie's spaceship's dashboard depict people burning in a lake of fire (a detail from The Number Of The Beast album cover), an image of Giza pyramids in the sunset (a reference to the Powerslave album cover), a moonlit graveyard (a reference to the Live After Death album cover) and a football field, showcasing the band's fascination with the game. A variety of smaller numeric displays show, among others, numbers 666 (a reference to the song "The Number Of The Beast") and 23-58 (a reference to the song "2 Minutes to Midnight").

The promotional video features black-and-white footage of the band playing the song in a studio in Frankfurt, West Germany, mixed with various scenes from band's previous promotional videos, together with clips of off-show activities during World Slavery Tour.
Wasted Years is featured in Rock Band.

Wow... just WOW. What an incredible album. When we were young, Czesław Niemen was the laughing stock of our generation, as he played what we considered "music for our parents", and that can never be cool, can it? And only years later it turns out how silly and uninformed adolescence is. :-) This work of art is a fine combination of prog rock and hard rock, with phenomenal musicianship, thoughtful lyrics, incredible vocals. Listen to this music. LISTEN TO IT! ;-)

Słodkości pyszne, niestety w lokalu duszno (zamiast włączyć klimatyzację, otwarto okna i drzwi) i pełno robactwa - chętnie posiedzielibyśmy dłużej, ale ile można oganiać się od much i os? Kelnerka na pytanie o walkę lokalu z owadami odpowiedziała, że "jest lampa owadobójcza, ale [kelnerka] nie wie, co się dzieje, osy chyba mają gdzieś tu gniazdo"... Na zewnątrz brak markizy nad stolikami, przez co w pełnym słońcu trudno wysiedzieć.

Dość przyjemna kwatera w Krakowie, 15 minut wolnym spacerkiem od Starego Miasta. Zapewnione podstawowe wygody, duża intymność (własne klucze, swoboda poruszania się, praktycznie nie widzieliśmy innych gości przez cztery dni pobytu). Miejsca parkingowe ogrodzone płotem i zamykane na klucz. Pozytywnie.

Przyjemne miejsce, darmowe Wi-Fi. Bez szaleństw, ale na dobrym poziomie. Lokalizacja taka, że można bezpłatnie uczestniczyć w koncertach znad zatoki, co niekoniecznie jest plusem. Ale ogólnie fajnie.
