(ABC North Coast: Catherine Marciniak)
Richel Danlag, a year 5 student who performed a solo act on the acrobatic tissue, had never done anything like this before in her life.”I felt very nervous before the performance, but when I did it I felt really proud of myself,” Richel said.Ms Levy said she felt the students’ sense of accomplishment, when they played their parts so well.”They had accomplished something as part of a team that was bigger than themselves,” she said. It took a lot of courage.””I am doing tricks on the mini tramp,” Blair McElligott said.”I was getting butterflies saying you can’t do it, you can’t do it — and then I did it!”It made me feel amazed and excited.”

Lessons beyond the stageAfter the performance the children were asked to write letters about what they learned from being in the circus.”I did a front flip, dive role and a cartwheel on the mini tramp,” Rory Welch said.”To do that I had to practice and I had to believe in myself.””I’m part of the Acrogirls,” Teagan Corrigan said.”We had to focus or someone would get hurt. Amid the standard curriculum of reading, writing and arithmetic, students of a small country school are joining the circus, right in their own school yard.It’s part of a social experiment funded by a local anonymous philanthropist, whose generosity this year funded the circus spectacular, Cirque du Coraki.The creative director of the show, Jacqui Levy, is also a music teacher at the school.”My main passion has always been working with kids who find it hard to fit into the school system,” Ms Levy said.”I think circus is a really valuable way to engage those kids because often they’re very physical.”It’s a really good way for them to feel a sense of self-worth.”Coraki Public School in northern NSW has fewer than 100 students, and many of them come from disadvantaged backgrounds.The no-strings-attached donation of $50,000 has allowed the school to partner with Circus in Education and Spaghetti Circus, who assist in training the children to a high level in circus skills.”Usually circus and schools appear to come from very different places,” Ms Levy said.”But, when you train circus to a high level it’s a lot of the same skills that teachers are trying to instil in their kids.”They learn teamwork, self-confidence and the social-emotional skills that teachers are trying to teach in their classrooms.”

The wizard of the wireThe circus script included a little-known local circus story.In the 1920s a young Indigenous man from nearby Lismore became famous when he was the first person in the world to master a front somersault on a tightrope.He was known internationally as the wizard of the wire.Six-year-old Onnika Kapeen played the role of Con Colleano in Cirque du Coraki.His starring role came as a complete surprise to his dad, Andrew Kapeen.”He was telling us every afternoon that he was Con Colleeni, Con Colleeni,” Mr Kapeen said.”We didn’t know who he was until we got here tonight and he did his performance.”It was overwhelming, seeing him up there.”

The lion tamerEleven-year-old Bryce Gollan had a starring role as the lion tamer in the production.”I was a bit surprised when I got the role,” Bryce said.”I wasn’t really the one who stood out, but I just got it, and I was like, Whoa!”In Bryce’s charge were 17 little lions from the year 2/3 class.His mother Elissa Gollan was surprised at what he achieved.”He is a quiet little boy,” Ms Gollan said.”It’s brought out his personality and it’s made him more confident.”Ms Gollan noticed her son’s leadership role also had positive outcomes in the classroom.”He puts his hand up a lot more, and he’s really on task,” she said.”I think it’s a really good program for these kids.”

Smash Mouth – Mother Lyrics

SMASH MOUTHMother Lyrics
You better love your mother
She’s the only one you’ve got
Yes, you better love your mother
It’s now or not
You better cup your hands with gratitude
‘Cause your harmony is out of tune
You better cup your hands with gratitude
You better shake that funky attitude
You better love your mother
‘Cause you know she’s got the blues
Yes, you better love your mother
‘Cause she’s warming up to you
You better cup your hands with gratitude
‘Cause your harmony is out of tune
You better cup your hands with gratitude
You better shake that funky attitude
You better shake that funky attitude
Just shake that funky attitude
C’mon and shake that funky attitude
You better shake that funky attitude
C’mon and shake that funky attitude

Kylie Jenner Changes Her Tyga Tattoo For Travis Scott

As for Tyga, he has a much bigger tattoo of Kylie on his arm so that will need a lot more work to cover up. The new tattoo is “La” for La Flame which is another name that Travis Scott goes by. It’s unclear why T-Raww and Jenner broke up, but some sources are saying that they were constantly fighting over different things like how he was being portrayed on the reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. There are even some engagement rumors floating around. Other reports also claimed that Tyga owes Kylie a bunch of money because she constantly bails him out of his financial dealings. They both recently got matching butterfly tattoos in support of Scott’s new single. Kylie Jenner is moving to erase every memory of Tyga including her tattoos. The reality star/makeup mogul had a “T” tattoo on her ankle for Tyga but not anymore because she traded it for a new tattoo paying homage to her new boyfriend Travis Scott. La Flame seems like he is enjoying the adventure because they are everywhere together including at Coachella and at his concerts. The couple has been dating for a few months now and things are progressing very quickly. Kylie and Travis Scott have been dating since April of this year which is a few weeks after dumping Tyga. Sources say Tyga is still in love with Kylie and is actively trying to get her to break up with Travis Scott.

The Blue Diamonds – Lilli Marlene (English Version) lyrics

Underneath the lantern
By the barrack gate
Darling I remember
The way you used to wait
‘Twas there that you whispered tenderly
That you loved me
You’d always be
My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
Time would come for roll call
Time for us to part
Darling I’d caress you
And press you to my heart
And there neath that far off lantern light
I’d hold you tight
We’d kiss good night
My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
Orders came for sailing
Somewhere over there
All confined to barracks
‘Twas more than I could bear
I knew you were waiting in the street
I heard your feet
But could not meet
My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
Resting in our billet
Just behind the line
Even though we’re parted
Your lips are close to mine
You wait where that lantern softly gleamed
Your sweet face seems
To haunt my dreams
My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene.

Jill Scott – When I Wake Up lyrics

Can’t stop. But when I wake up
Everything I went through would be beautiful
When I wake up
And I will wake up
It’s gonna be beautiful
Down to my left side (Last cry)
Feeling like I could fly
(Feeling like I could fly)
All day, up high. But when I wake up,
And one day I will do it,
I have let you go
And everything I went through was beautiful
I have let you go
And everything I went through was beautiful
Maybe I, right now, can’t see the forest for the trees
So lost behind hurt
But I’m trying everyday exponentially
To move forward
Do you know how it feels to be lost? Too much on my mind
Too much on my mind
Too much on my mind
Too much on my…
La la la la la la la la la
Here I am thinking again
All lost in my brain
But I know I should get up and get out of it
I gotta keep moving
But here I am lost all up inside my brain
Can’t stop thinking, reminiscing. Can’t let go. Sweeter than the sugar on a cinnamon treat
Or an ice cream
That was me
But I’m feeling like I’m in a nightmare
Fear of loving somebody, everywhere
Oh Lord, I need this confirmation, this affirmation
That when I wake up
When I wake up
Everything I went through will be beautiful
When I wake up
Everything I went through will be beautiful
Gotta wake up
Gotta wake up
Gotta wake up
Gotta wake up…
Everything I went through will be beautiful

Kodak Black – Just A Wrap Freestyle Lyrics

A lil shoutout, a lil publicity? A lil song or a picture? [Talking]
See there’s pussy niggas everywhere
Gutter niggas everywhere
You niggas buy that shit or whatever
Yall already know niggas about they issue
[Verse]
I was fucking with you strong, what’s the issue? You say somebody hit your phone like it’s pressure
So we’ll just fuck it dog, I thought that we was better
What you wanted? Man I ain’t forgivin a nigga who had you on your knees And I don’t cop no pleas unless I’m jammed up
The only way you talk to me is about some cheddar
I’m swimming in the pool with my beretta
I been learning moves dancing with the devil
Damn I heard you ain’t wanna let the Draco spray
Why the hell you even got it anyway? What you wanted? If you asked me i would’ve did it with no resistance
You made a dis song and now you in your feelings
Running around telling niggas, they wouldn’t listen
Yea you niggas bout that life, but we more realer
Everytime you pull a play, we pull one bigger
Yea you niggas bout that too, but we some lunatics
Man you niggas should’ve thought before you do the shit
Tried to shoot a video on my corner but we shoot the shit
If you a bitch now tell the media that you a bitch
I don’t tweet, I tell that nigga pull up bring some food
All my zombies in the projects will devour you
And it’s easy to keep the tool but you don’t know how to move
And you niggas ain’t strategic, and you moving loose
My nigga caught him at the wrong time with the .22
[?] but it’s a .22
I ain’t specifically talkin bout you Heffer
You niggas ain’t got no balls, ain’t got no testicles
You niggas pussy, ain’t got no balls ain’t got no pelvis
Cuz if you was a man you wouldn’t be jealous
Yall done brought it to a whole other level
Niggas getting kidnapped and getting let go
Niggas only did that just to scare you
To tell the truth if I was there you would’ve been dead bro
And I feel like it’s a blessing I’m on house arrest bro
Cuz you niggas already know a nigga hit first
My cousin just got hit up and it fucked my head up
I was ready to rock and roll, come find my heavy metal
I ask my people “why you move my gun when I went to jail for?”
This house arrest might be a blessing, might be better
What the hell happened to that 187
On another note you niggas should’ve know better
Niggas know we ain’t the niggas to be fucked with
But you niggas out here smoking on that fuck shit
Oh you know we them niggas from the project
Oh you know we them niggas we them zombies
And you know we them niggas boy we about it
And you niggas gookin’ right now smokin mollies
If yall wasn’t smoking mollies y’all would know the deal
How you gon [?] against the will
And I don’t call deuces, I call .30s
And I can’t believe [?] that nigga dirty
Yea you bout that shit you live it but you workin
I don’t care what you did I tell a nigga you workin
I keep having visions about these niggas getting wet up
How the hell you can’t tell me bout the set up? I don’t even know why niggas [?]
You should’ve came with bloods you just wannabe
How you rhyme with a nigga who stripped you out your jeans?

Joey Bada$$ – 500 Benz Lyrics

[Intro]
500 Benz
500 Benz
Statik Selektah
500 Benz
500 Benz
[Verse 1]
Took the business class seats back to NYC
Left LAX with a bag of the THC
Straight reekin’
Nowadays I bounce back in full each weekend
Shorter days, longer nights, from my lack of sleepin’
Thinkin’ when this bi-coastal life is just dreams and
Now a nigga headed west the cold seasons
Wrist below freezin’, chicks is strip teasin’
They only suck a nigga when a nigga succeedin’
If she a go-getter then she never will achieve ’em
Best believe, ’cause all I do is fuckin’ lead ’em
Off in the right direction, teacher lent me lessons
Reduce the stress and balance out the imperfections
Hundred folded in my lap like many blessings
Every night ‘fore I take the chance, I ask questions
Somethin’ like, can you meet me at the Westin? Fuck it, I’m just shootin’ all my shots now
Hard to be humble, when you ridin’ with your top down
Picture me rollin’ up in my SL500 Benz
Mami sip on the potion while her hair blowin’ in the wind
I’m just tryna win but they hatin’ from the sideline
These niggas watch mine like a nigga primetime
I’m ten thousand feet right above your skyline
Sippin’ on the fine wine, the only thing on my mind
[Chorus]
500 Benz, AMG package
’95 classic, rare Gucci jacket
With the Cartier glasses, just to match it
[Verse 2]
So anytime I’m pullin’ off, it’s getaway fashion
Coppers’ll never catch him, I got hustler’s passion
Chick in my passenger seat, she lookin’ like she came out the pageant
And he down for anything that I ask or imagine
So I hit the corner store and copped a pack of the Magnums, shit
‘Cause I ain’t playin’ no games
Lil R&B chick and I ain’t sayin’ no names
Let her rock the mic and give a nigga soul brain
By the time this shit drops she’ll prolly be my old thang
I’m just young and livin’, pullin’ many women
If you was in my shoes, I bet you couldn’t say you wouldn’t
Been in the deep end since I got my foot in
Now these niggas wanna ride the wave all of a sudden
[Chorus]
SL500 Benz with the AMG package
And the rare Gucci jacket, Cartier glasses, just to match it
Cartier glasses, just to match it
I said
SL500 Benz with the rare Gucci jacket
And the AMG package
Cartier glasses, just to match it
Match it, Cartier glasses, just to match it, skrrt
[Outro]
500 Benz
Match it
500 Benz
Match it
500 Benz
Match it, match it
500 Benz
500 Benz And after I fuck you, girl can I fuck your best friend?

AC/DC – Hard as a Rock Lyrics

[Verse 1]
A rolling rock, electric shocks
She gives a lickin’ that don’t stop
She light ’em up, push you ’round
Smokin’ rings goin’ ’round and ’round
[Pre-Chorus]
Her hot potatoes
Will elevate you
Her bad behavior
Will leave you standin’ proud
An’ hard as a rock
[Chorus]
Hard as a rock
Well, it’s harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Well, it’s harder than a rock
[Verse 2]
The lightnin’ rod strike it hot
It’s gonna hit you like the Rushmore rock
No nicotine and no pipe dreams
So low and dirty, it’s down right mean
[Pre-Chorus]
Hell elevator
Yeah, I’ll see you later
No, I ain’t going to take it
Yes, I’m
I’m busting out
I’m hard as a rock
[Chorus]
[Bridge 1]
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Yeah
I’m gettin’ harder
[Solo]
Harder than a rock
[Bridge 2]
Well, I’m harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Babe, I’m harder than a rock, yeah
[Chorus]

Bought pints now I purchase liters
Shark bite, I’m a person eater
Walk light on the dirt beneath you

Get off my lawn, cuttin’ on the sprinklers, yeah

The pussy fat and clean like a pig, I’ma pig out
Yeah I’m Blood, but I got some cool Crips that I can send out
Ain’t no loose lips, take the cruise ship, ain’t tryna swim out
Brrrt, brrrt, that the money counter, let it print out

Raven’s Project – Flower From Heaven Side lyrics

No one’s looking for her, because she lives in hiding
No one remembers her, because there’s not any writing
Maybe there’s just an imaginary realm
Maybe she’s just a forgotten dream
Silence reigns, lightless night
Flawless beauty, no one sees
Flower from heaven side
Hiding in deepest night
Flower from heaven side
No one is looking for her
No one is waiting for her
