Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain and an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?
Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

San Francisco-based artist and architect Tiffanie Turner creates enormous, elaborate paper flowers that look like something Alice might’ve encountered in Wonderland. Each beautiful blossom is made of countless layers of delicate crepe paper, measures nearly three feet in diameter and takes anywhere from 35 to 80 hours to assemble.

"My work in paper stems from my background as an architect, particularly my interest in how things are made and the use of repetitive elements, along with my lifelong obsession with flowers and botanical drawings. The exploration of scale plays heavily into everything I do, and the organized chaos and rhythms in nature make the heads of flowers an excellent case study for me."

Turner has a solo show of her giant paper blossoms, entitled Heads, currently on exhibit at Rare Device in San Francisco through May 28, 2014. Assuming you live in the area, this sounds like a wonderful Mother’s Day destination.

When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And resentment rides high
But emotions won’t grow

And we’re changing our ways
Taking different roads…
Then love, love will tear us apart
Love will tear us apart, again

Why is the bedroom so cold?
You’ve turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect runs so dry

Yet there’s still this appeal
That we’ve kept through our lives…
But love, love will tear us apart
Love will tear us apart, again

You cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed
And there’s a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold

Just that something so good
Just can’t function no more…
And love, love will tear us apart
Love will tear us apart, again

Megadeth 01 Holy Wars…The Punishment Due

1990. Rust In Peace

The song has an unusual structure, shifting at 2:26 after an acoustic bridge by Marty Friedman to a different, slower and heavier section called “The Punishment Due”, before speeding up again. The entire song is commonly referred to as simply “Holy Wars”.

The lyrical theme of “Holy Wars” deals with the Northern Ireland conflict, and Mustaine’s feelings concerning religion.
