Was going to post about this last night but honestly I was just too deeply affected to formulate any coherent words. -
If you didn't see Peter Jackson's searingly powerful documentary #theyshallnotgrowold on BBC 2, get it on catch up, find it somewhere but DO NOT MISS it. -
The #lordoftherings director used brilliantly edited original footage from the #imperialwarmuseum combined with original audio from the #bbc archives of dozens and dozens of surviving soldiers telling their unflinchingly honest and unsentimental, impossibly harrowing stories of war, slaughter and the power of the human spirit to survive the unimaginable. -

That alone would be impactful enough but what really gave the film its unforgettable impact was the way he used modern techniques to bring the footage to remarkable colour. It was like seeing the #firstworldwar For the first time. Even images you'd seen, sometimes many times before, took on a whole new perspective and significance. -

It was simply astonishing. And my #heydayhighlight of the day, week, month and year. .

#scottishobservation #forest #forestforage #spruce #cedar #scotspine #larch #westernhemlock #cones #hips #sloes #crabapples #lichen #birchbark #wreath #funeral #privileged to spend a few days gathering fruits and foliage for a fellow forestry gentleman, a man who worked and spent his life in these woods. He wished for a wreath made from the plants, trees and lichen he saw every day. His wish is granted. #@edenofdumfries #thankyou #perfect #afittingtribute #endofalovelyday #endofaworthwhileday #southwestscotland

Awesome street graffiti of Anthony Bourdain by @never1959 @gramercy_bar 💕 #afittingtribute #streetart #losangeles #anthonybourdain

If we’re taking down Jefferson Davis statues, can we add this marker commemorating the birth (tomorrow) of Union General Jefferson C. Davis to the list? Sure, he was a Jefferson Davis that fought for the Union. But he was vain, vindictive, and dumb, and if his face doesn’t inspire confidence, it shouldn’t: He shot and killed a fellow federal general in cold blood in a Louisville hotel room for SLAPPING him. Now, the general he murdered, William “Bull” Nelson, was a huge guy — 6’2, 300 pounds — so, let’s face it, you didn’t need to be a squirrel-hunting sharpshooter to hit him from across a room. But still, the UNION Jefferson Davis killed more Federal generals than the CONFEDERATE Jefferson Davis. Think about THAT for a minute ... -----------------------------
But Davis got away with it, ‘cuz living generals were in high demand, and on Sherman’s march, he reached his nadir. (AND REMEMBER: HE HAD ALREADY KILLED A COLLEAGUE.) Davis had his soldiers pick up their pontoon bridges after they crossed a river, leaving hundreds of “freed slaves” to be stranded on the Rebel-controlled bank -- or drowned trying to swim across. Here’s Major James Connolly: “The idea of five or six hundred black women, children, and old men being thus returned to slavery by such an infernal copperhead as Jeff C. Davis was entirely too much for my Democracy … and I told his staff what I thought of such an inhuman, barbarous proceeding in language which may possibly result in a reprimand from his serene Highness ... but I don’t care a fig.” (Major Connolly, take a bow.) You know who else didn’t “care a fig?” Davis’ commanding general, a certain William T. Sherman, who apparently bought Davis’ BS that the refugees who didn’t cross had “fallen asleep.” -----------------------------
After the war, Davis kicked Russians in Sitka, Alaska, out of their homes so US troops could occupy them and crushed the 1877 St. Louis General Strike, which left 18 people dead, with federal troops and Gatling guns. Actually, you know what? Leave his marker where it is. Maybe some punk will spit out a car window and hit it by mistake. #AFittingTribute #CivilWar #murder #InColdBlood #JeffDavis #TheOtherOne

VERY PROUD of how this #MusicVideo came out. Something I made just for fun, but still #AFittingTribute to game I love #Halo5 #HaloSeries the song is called #WhenIToldYouToLeaveINeverThoughtYouWouldGo and it’s one of my better tracks. #MasterChiefArmor looks good getting gritty with the #UpCloseAndPersonal kills!!! I’ll paste link to full video in comments. You can inbox me as well.

Went on a day trip to New York City yesterday. @jjbeemer & I made our first visit to @tiffanyandco, attended the quickest mass ever at @stpatrickscathedral & ended the day with a visit to the @911memorial where we spotted this gorgeous rose nestled into the name of one of the almost 3,000 people lost on 9/11. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is a respectful collection of artifacts & stories from that unspeakably tragic day in US History. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend you go. Be prepared to relive the horror & human suffering & reflect. Reflect on the events of 9/11, remember where you were & mourn the lost souls. Heartbreakingly beautiful.

When thousands of people stand to remember those that sacrificed their lives and who continue to sacrifice their lives in order to make the world safer. LEST WE FORGET. #rememberanceday #lestweforget #fallenheroes #principalitystadium #cardiff #peopleunited #afittingtribute #armedforces #emotional #breadofheaven #janeysworld #thelastpost #welshrugby #rugby #wales
