Starset – Starlight (Lyric Video)

I promise
[Chorus]
I don’t know what to say
But I’m going to want you till the stars evaporate
We’re only here for just a moment in the light
One day it shines for us the next we’re in the night
So say the word and I’ll be running back to find you
A thousand armies won’t stop me I’ll break through
I’ll soar the endless skies for only one sight
Of your starlight

[Verse 2]
Tell me
Just tell me to stay
I’ll turn
I won’t look away
I’ll stay here
I’ll never go but you don’t feel the same
Farewell
Farewell and godspeed
Light years
Between you and me
I’m fading
Your beauty conquers the darkness
[Chorus]
At night the earth will rise
And I’ll think of you each time I watch from distant skies
Whenever stars go down and galaxies ignite
I’ll think of you each time they wash me in their light
And I’ll fall in love with you again
I will find you
A thousand armies won’t stop me I’ll break through
I’ll soar the endless skies for only one sight of your starlight
[Bridge]
Don’t leave me lost here forever
Show me your starlight and pull me through
Don’t leave me lost here forever
I need your starlight and pull me through
Bring me back to you

[Chorus]
At night the earth will rise
And I’ll think of you each time I watch from distant skies
Whenever stars go down and galaxies ignite
I’ll think of you each time they wash me in their light
And I’ll fall in love with you again
I will find you
A thousand armies won’t stop me I’ll break through
I’ll soar the endless skies for only one sight of your starlight [Verse 1]
Stardust
In you and in me
Fuse us
Into unity
Primeval
We’re coupled
Born from the universe
Farewell
The void is calling
Don’t fear
For futures and dreams
They’re fleeting, retreating
It’s ok.

Skyzoo – Long Money

They put it far enough away from us to want it right? Said it take too long to count it and get on it right? They put it far enough away from us to want it right? Did whatever they could do to keep it from us right? Said it take too long to count it and get on it right? [Verse]
Long money looked so short from 100 feet out
And counting down from 99 make you wanna reroute
98 will test your patience and all that you ’bout
97, 96, 95, hit a switch, like get a ride, hit a lick, fuck walking with time
Time will tell and mine will tell that we won ‘fore we died
Or at least that’s what they sell us and all of us buy
Feeling sorry for our mothers was all they replied
Like "hurry up and buy", and shots fly in response
Hurry up and die is what they kinda really want
Drop 5 in the front, or $4.99, new neighbors got these beers even higher
Fear the replier, ’cause shots fly in response and all you get to hear is the choir
The talk’s heinous but it’s here to inspire
The motive, is all the above, it reads like a coroner’s love
And nobody’s better, we all need a plug
Introductions turn to falling in love, let’s keep it all of a buck
Nobody’s better B, all of you suck
But back, to the lecture at hand
Going hand over fist, hand on a flip, no step on the plans
You outside?, no step on the plants, that’s what the difference be
And intuition be all we want as a centerpiece
Center me as being, the minority that all the majority speaking thru
And speaking to you
Was a short money plan that turned into more
Bet it all took a turn when we heard the allure
It’s just the life, of solemnly swearing over approaches
And leaning on a Beamer was all they needed to coach us
Suited up for this AAU, and may their stoops
Be protected as ever when that pay day loops
It comes around with a high and a low, a give and a take
They listen in for the breaks like finding a hole
You dip from the jakes and find your way home
My man went to the isle and caught the finest C.O
The bitch amazing, well according to him when we would kick it on the V.I
I’m hoping they transfer him and he kick it with Mumia
Word to Destiny’s pops, we was taught that Heaven do watch
And police talk with they heckler and koch
I heard the latter, as well as my man saying
That he campaigning to catch a Milly if soda ever do rock
I wanted to put it all on a record or put it all on a screen
Or 2 for 1 like I was selling tops
One of my heroes is Spike, and another one is Jada
So baby I still want head in the drop
Love is love, love us for whoever we are
And if you never stood for that then we could be never be y’all
Learned how to stand tall when I was seated with my pops in the drop
And he was preaching how to be what y’all not
’cause dude I was with pops every day, and when I wasn’t
He called my mother’s crib either way and the discussions
Was drowning out the shit in the hallway
And the staircase was adjacent to our front doorway
So for that talk to drown out what the hall say
Means that it was louder than what the liquor store made
Raised by a goon who saw the bloom in his off spring
Thuggin’ it, talcum on his middle finger, Malcom on his trigger finger
Cutting up and shooting out
But paused from 3 to 4 or whenever school was out
Know that it’s Brooklyn forever son you already know
You stab me I leak Henny like I said befoe’
So, you do me dirty I still won, rap like steel drums
Rappers I feels none, except for Griselda
Red carpet to the yellow tape what they sells us
And they say that the money got us indebted to failures
It’s tricky ain’t it?, sitting and waiting while the shit is explained
Short money never came with a residual frame and…

[Chorus]
Long money wasn’t nothing that they taught us right? Did whatever they could do to keep it from us right? Long money wasn’t nothing that they taught us right?

Shy Glizzy – Take Me Away

Today I fucked some new hoes, I was scorchin’ them
The same hoes that used to play, now let the door hit ’em
Forever Tre-7 that’s what made me
I thank God for this music that’s what’s savin’ me
I bet I’ll make that bitch regret it that she played with me
It ain’t nothin’ but a G thing, baby
Nothin’ but a G thang pull up in my G wag’
Nigga where yo hood at? I don’t need no G-pass
Bitch you see the way I’m drippin’, tell me do you need swag? [Intro]
[Verse 1]
Niggas wasn’t from my block, I went to war for them
And you can fuckin’ ask the opps, I never forfeit them
Guess what? You say you that nigga, but nobody don’t believe that
[Pre-Chorus]
It’s a war, started outside
Don’t wanna talk about it, but somebody might die
Ain’t wanna tell you ’bout it ’cause I know you might cry
Girl don’t you ever doubt me no just look me in my eyes
Heard love is in the air, so I might fucking sky dive
They took my dog away, he didn’t fuckin’ survive
Now I’m livin’ for today, that chopper ride when I ride
If these streets take me away, a real nigga I die

[Chorus]
A real nigga, I die
If these streets take me away, a real nigga, I die
Yeah, real nigga, I die
If these streets take me away, a real nigga, I die
[Verse 2]
That money alright, I don’t need me a friend
We took a loss, now we eatin’ again
She came back in my life, now she leavin’ again
This is real life, I don’t need me a pen
Pull up in a Benz and them bitches get in
Don’t fuck with fake niggas, I’m realer than them
Triller than them, iller than them
I make the gang pull the trigger on them
I don’t trust these bitches, these bitches is scandalous
Really been fuckin’ these hoes since an amateur
She suck my dick while I count it up, count it up
I load the clip while she roll up the cannabis
You want a feature, go talk to my manager
Come to my trap house, don’t pull out no cameras
You gave me your heart and I’m sorry I damaged ya
Baby I’m right here, look at me, I ran it up
[Pre-Chorus]
It’s a war, started outside
Don’t wanna talk about it, but somebody might die
Ain’t wanna tell you ’bout it ’cause I know you might cry
Girl don’t you ever doubt me no just look me in my eyes
Heard love is in the air, so I might fucking sky dive
They took my dog away, he didn’t fuckin’ survive
Now I’m livin’ for today, that chopper ride when I ride
If these streets take me away, a real nigga I die

[Chorus]
A real nigga, I die
If these streets take me away, a real nigga, I die
Yeah, real nigga, I die
If these streets take me away, a real nigga, I die

Approaching the end of the last school term, it’s the time when children are sent home with all their “amazing” creations made throughout the year.So, what do you do with all the outpouring of intellectual endeavour that’s stacking up on your kitchen bench?Anne has two primary school-aged children and finds it a dilemma to know what to keep and what to throw away.”If I throw anything away it has to be done in secret, in the dark, so that they don’t see it,” she said. (Flickr: Ohsohappytogether)
The importance of drawingDr Misty Adoniou is an associate professor in language and literacy at the University of Canberra.Through her studies she has found allowing young children to draw can positively affect their writing skills.”If children drew before they did their writing, then they wrote more and they wrote better quality sentences,” she said.Dr Adoniou said children should be encouraged to continue drawing throughout their later schooling years too.”I think it’s a shame that somehow we teach [drawing] out of them.”We should really keep it as something they should really want to do and give them an outlet.”She also suggested for parents to include their children in the process of culling artworks.”At least if you ask first, then you know which ones are important to them.”And then for yourself, look at the drawings and [choose] the ones that are meaningful to you.”

To avoid any tears from the young ones, Anne has since adopted a more consultative approach of dealing with the growing pile of artworks.She holds onto all the pieces brought home throughout the year, then in December she allows her children to choose half a dozen to keep.”At the time [they’re made] they love [the artwork] and it’s the most precious thing in the world,” she told James Valentine on ABC Radio Sydney.”But after 12 months that’s it, they don’t really want to know about it.”Tips for reducing your children’s artworksOther listeners suggested creative and sensitive ways of dealing with children’s artworks cluttering up the home.Allow children to curate a small collection of their drawings at the end of each year.Only keep items that are unique creations as opposed to ones made from stencils.Use art portfolios or plastic-sleeved folders to display the best works.Frame and hang the best pieces and replace the artwork once a year.Take a digital photograph of each drawing before discarding.Use the paper artworks as gift wrapping or Christmas ornaments.Create a scrapbook with your children using their drawings.Keep the most sentimental works in a shoebox for your children to look back on when they’re older.

Bringing out your dead mobiles to feed the hungry

This year they’re aiming to reach 70,000 by the end of February.Fiona Nearn, spokesperson for OzHarvest, estimated that more than three million Australians experienced food insecurity each year. “[Meanwhile] the simple transaction of recycling a mobile phone can actually help by donating a meal to someone in the community who needs it.”

Tips for reducing food wasteDon’t over-purchase, shop more regularlyDon’t leave things at the back of the fridge to forget aboutAvoid the two-for-one deals at the supermarketUse all the trimmings from produce and meats; peelings and bones can be made into stock Turn leftovers into a meal the next daySource: OzHarvest chef Marion Casey
MobileMuster has teamed up with not-for-profit food rescue organisation OzHarvest to run the program.Last year’s inaugural drive saw 60,000 mobiles collected, resulting in the same amount of free meals being delivered. A nationwide initiative encouraging people to recycle their old mobile phones is hoping to tackle the issues of waste and hunger at the same time.Organisers of the Mobile for a Meal campaign have pledged that for every phone recycled this summer, a meal will be donated to somebody in need.With an estimated 23 million disused mobile phones lying in people’s drawers around Australia, the program could have huge effects for the environment and the people it will benefit.”The value comes from actually lessening the need to mine these precious metals [used in mobile phones],” MobileMuster manager Spyro Kalos said. She said the initiative’s rollout was also a timely reminder for people to be mindful about waste during the festive season.”Half of food waste comes from homes and this is the most abundant time of year.”

What happens with the recycled phones?Mr Kalos said the returned phones were destroyed and 99 per cent of the recycled materials were reused.He also wanted to ensure donors there would be no issues with personal data security.”We never sell or reuse anything that we collect and that’s why it’s safe and secure,” he said.While the industry-funded recycle scheme has drop-off points all around the country, he urged consumers to do their part to ensure the program worked.”As consumers we have a responsibility that when we no longer need a product that we’re recycling it responsibly.” Join the discussion in the comments.

Makerspace concept being used to develop technology to assist people with disabilities

Mr Tracey said some of the assistive technology built during the make-a-thon included; a wheelchair that could be taken on the beach, a robotic arm that could assist a young lady to play pool and a urinal that plays music for an autistic teenager.”It was intense, but euphoric making fun,” he said.Mr Tracey said this was just the beginning though as they planned to run make-a-thons regularly, at least three to four times a year.New programsJody Schneider, Personal Futures Planner at CLS said that the campus would have much more to offer people with disabilities, than just the makerspace. “Hopefully whether you have a disability or not you will want to come here and enjoy the space,” Mr Tracey said. (ABC Wide Bay: Trudie Leigo)
Participants enrolled in the Skills Campus program will have the choice to participate in a variety of subjects on offer each day, based on their interests. “For people with a disability their circle of support, or their circle of friends, are mainly paid support in a lot of cases,” Ms Schneider said.By creating the opportunity for the disability community to work alongside the main stream community the campus hopes to change that. The organisation’s CEO, Damien Tracey, said it was this focus on problem solving for people with disabilities that made the space unique. “That’s how we’ll end up with really cool products coming out of regional Queensland that may not even be coming out of capital cities.” “We’d like to provide a venue where they can come together and share ideas and leverage of each others skills and experience,” Mr Tracey said.He said the second group of people the space was aimed at was people with a disability and community elders who had a need that might require a technology solution.”It’s actually bringing the facility, the technical experts, and the people who have a need, together as equal partners in a prototyping process,” Mr Tracey said.

Running out of the campus will be a series of 12-week programs that would assist individuals to gain life skills in an informal learning environment. (ABC Wide Bay: Trudie Leigo)

Ms Schneider hopes the new campus will also help to increase social connectedness.”We are trying to create a social, real environment for people to come and learn real skills, but also to make real connections and real friendships that will last a long time,” she said. In an industrial shed on the outskirts of Bundaberg, the new facility has the potential to change the face of disability support in regional Queensland. Make-a-thon held to open the space

To officially open the space a 72-hour-make-a-thon took place, which saw six teams of people design and build assistive technology to meet the needs of six individuals with disabilities. “People will have more choice and control about what they want to do, they won’t have to do what the rest of the group is doing,” Ms Schneider said.The cutting edge technology will also be available for everyone to learn to use, with support provided on a daily basis. “Makerspaces are not uncommon in state capitals and regional areas, what makes this space rare is that it is focussed on assistive technology,” he said.”We are not aware of any others that exist in regional areas, anywhere in Queensland or Australia,” Mr Tracey said.Mr Tracey said the space had been built with two groups of people in mind.He said the space aimed to bring technical experts such as computer programmers, fabricators and megatronic engineers together.
