I can't figure it out after the renovation. It used to require going north from the foyer, but now there is no passage north. I've searched everywhere but obviously I'm missing something. :help:

These were the directions posted by Dgry on the officials. You can still climb down the drainpipe to reach the street below.
[Wehnimer's Museum, Grand Lobby]
White marble columns, set halfway into the walls, serve as both decoration and structural support for the high ceiling. Set between them are some colorful velvet settees that offer respite for weary patrons. The cool marble floor is interrupted by a pale gold carpet that leads up an expansive staircase. In the usaa homeowners insurance foundation repair of the western wall is a green marble arch, while the eastern wall sports a white marble arch. Across the room from a gold marble arch, a large platinum plaque and a rectangular white sign are displayed beside the oaken double doors that lead outside. You also see a small cat.

[Wehnimer's Museum, Lobby]
Surrounded by darkly paneled walls, this second-floor lobby mimics the opulence of the one below with its expansive marble floor and intricately painted ceiling. Hallways lead to the east and west, while a neatly printed sign directing visitors to their destinations rests near an expansive staircase. Across from the landing, a mahogany arch with a bas-relief floral design leads to the north.
Obvious exits: east, west
[Museum, Hall of Knowledge]
Mahogany-paneled walls encapsulate this small room. Low bookshelves dot the pale gold marble floor, their dark mahogany surfaces polished to a shine and adorned with astrolabes, compasses, and various other objects. A solid oak door with a small gold plaque resides between two tapestries depicting scholars at work studying tomes and scrolls. On the opposite wall, an onyx arch leads to another room. Standing between the two exits is a white metal sign on an iron stand, while on the south side wall, a mahogany arch with a bas-relief floral design leads to the second floor lobby.
Obvious exits: none
[Hall of Knowledge, Library]
Bookshelves encompass all the remaining wall space that is not taken up by doors, and a plush pale gold rug covers the floor. Wooden tables, flickering oil lanterns set on their surfaces, and cushioned chairs offer daily gate city newspaper in keokuk ia to spread out and read or study. Scents of parchment, glue, and dust permeate the room. The well-manicured librarian stands behind a low wooden checkout desk, its surface littered with folios, quills, and jars of ink.

[Museum, Member Lounge]
In the middle of the ceiling, a large crystal chandelier descends to illuminate the inlaid wooden dance floor in the center of the room. Various stained glass skylights dot the ceiling in an artfully haphazard fashion, each one a different scene of upper class society. Along the northern wood-paneled wall, a long cloth-covered table is laden with refreshments. Against the opposite wall, several plush velvet settees rest on the green marbled flooring that runs the edge of the room, offset from an intricately patterned silk curtain in the corner.
Obvious exits: none
You climb a long thick rope.
[Wehnimer's Museum, Rooftop]
The view from the rooftop extends all the way to the walls of Wehnimer's Landing and beyond. Exposed to the elements, this wind blown edifice juts up into the sky opposite the https m youtube com watch v nfwlot6h_jm tower on the eastern side of the museum. Protected from errant footfalls by metal rims, various stained glass skylights are set into the rough stone floor. An unobtrusive drainpipe is attached to the side of the building, leading rainwater away from the roof.

HM1) Song: Bang Bang
Artist: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj
Year-End Position: 27
What can I say about this one? The beat to this one is highly energetic and fun to listen to, each performer brings their A-game (yes, even Nicki), and the lyrics, while they are the typical cliché of phone number santander customer service "I'm better at sex than her," kinda do something pretty unique with it by playing with the good girl/bad girl dichotomy and sorta makes it sound like Jessie and Ariana are competing for the guy in question. I don't know why I find so much enjoyment in that, I just do. I do wish it had a bit more staying power, but this is still a really fun and catchy pop tune that I really dig.
HM2) Song: Story Of My Life
Artist: One Direction
Year-End Position: 24
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-TE_Ys4iwMStraying away from the typical boy band material proved to be a really good decision for One Direction as this song quite clearly proves. It's an attempt 1D makes to show a more personal side in their songwriting, and it works surprisingly well, especially in the delivery and instrumentation. A few lyrical stumbles unfortunately keep this one off the list, but there's no denying that this song really is a rarity when it comes to boy bands and how sometimes something different can pay off really well in the end.
HM3) Song: Shake If Off
central bank of india online atm apply Artist: Taylor Swift
Year-End Position: 13
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfWlot6h_JMAnyone who saw my original review of this song knows that I wasn't too big a fan of this song when it first came out. Since then, however, it has grown on me immensely to where it is now a song I thoroughly enjoy a lot. It's got a lot of energy backing it, Taylor has a lot of energy and charisma in this track, and overall it's a song that's really fun with a lot of quirky moments. It may be about haters, but that doesn't bother me too much. Anytime I hear it. I jam out.
HM4) Song: Trumpets
Artist: Jason DeRulo
Year-End Position: 61
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOAfz0H4f00I know I've been a bit hard on DeRulo lately, but he has still made songs I liked this year, and this is the proof. This is just pure, dumb fun. It's energetic production that has a lot of texture and variety in its mix, Jason's smooth vocals, and the lyrics that, while awkward and stupid, have a certain admirable charm to them, I just couldn't help but really like this song. It comes off as less of a centerstate bank logo sex jam and more of a happy jam about how being head over heels in love can make you say some stupid things sometimes, and I can't help but appreciate how much it does with that and does it surprisingly well. What else can I say about it? It's just a really fun song.
HM5) Song: Bailando
Artist: Enrique Iglesias feat. Sean Paul, Descember Bueno, & Gente de Sona
Year-End Position: 38
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8I-7Wk_VbcA return to the Latin flavor style that made Enrique Iglesias big to begin with that's really great to listen to with interjections from Sean Paul and the two unknowns that is fun to listen to both in English and Spanish? Okay, quick tip, Enrique: more stuff like this, less stuff like Tonight (I'm "Lovin'" You). You're way more suited for this style right here.
HM6) Song: She Looks So Perfect
Artist: 5 Seconds Of Summer
Year-End Position: 93
I honestly get the feeling that people really only hate this song because of that American Apparel underwear line, and honestly, I find that a real shame because this song is pretty damn awesome. The rollicking rock energy this song brings to the table is phenomenal, and the vocals by lead singer Luke Hemmings and backing vocalist Calum Hood are pretty excellent. Lyrically, aside from that one line everyone seems to hate so much, it's a song about hooking up with a love interest and ditching a deadbeat town, and honestly, there may not be much to how the song is delivered content-wise, but performance-wise, the song just gets sold in nearly every conceivable facet for me. I honestly do wish people would look past that one line because outside of that, I really don't see anything negative about this song. It's just a shame that they followed this with the terrible Amnesia. Oh well, at least we still have this song.
HM7) Song: I Don't Dance
Artist: Lee Brice
Year-End Position: 98
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBEBbgQEJy4Okay, I know I've been pretty hard on country music on this blog, but I don't want you to believe that I hate the genre or anything, far from it as I actually quite like it, and songs like I Don't Dance prove that. The instrumentation is lush and is really well suited for Brice's vocals, which are awesome, not to mention how genuine and just heartwarming the lyrics of how he'll willingly do anything that he normally wouldn't to for the woman he's truly in love with are. Yeah, it's done to death and cliché, but Lee brings a lot to the table with it, and it's still a nice listen overall.
HM8) Song: Chandelier
Year-End Position: 25
Wow, this song has really grown on me over time. I can't believe this used to be a dishonorable mention on my worst list. It's awesome as heck. Everything that Chandelier has to offer just screams sheer https m youtube com watch v nfwlot6h_jm and desperation in the best ways possible. The production is epic, bombastic, and full of energy, not to mention how sweeping and moving it is. Sia is just throwing herself into her performance with just such raw intensity and emotion that it's hard to be mad at. That's not even touching on the lyrics that describe the struggle of a woman who's trapped by alcoholism and having nothing left in her life but a vapid, endless cycle of partying. While I'm still not a big fan of Sia absolutely shredding her vocal cords or how the percussion crushes the mix in to this sort of slurry mess, and while I do wish there was just a tiny bit more to the lyrics and much prefer a similar song that came out later in the year (trust me, we'll get to it), this is still DAMN good.
HM9) Song: Let It Go
Artist: Idina Menzel
Year-End Position: 21
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moSFlvxnbgkAaaaand here come the droves of people who will inevitably say stuff like "that's not a real song" or "it's just a desperate cash grab from Disney" or something to that effect, but even if it is, so what? It's still a damn good song, and yes, it is a song. wildly popular movie or non.
The instrumentation starts off a soft, beautiful piano ballad, but as the song progresses, transforms in to this grandiose, sweeping mass of strings and piano chords that combine with Menzel's strident vocals wonderfully for a piece of music that's just absolutely marvelous. But the real star of the show is the lyrics, and even without the context of Frozen's main character, Elsa, coming to terms with everything that's happened to her, they still do a magnificent job of conveying a message of not letting one's shortcomings hold him/her back anymore and being himself/herself and honest about make a bank account online for free under 18 he/she really is. It's a great message spoken with such poetic lyricism that I just couldn't help but love and respect it. Disney, you are geniuses. As long as we don't get anymore Cars or Chicken Little, you medical clinic of north texas denton always continue to be amazing.
HM10) Song: All Of Me
Artist: John Legend
Year-End Bcb community bank hours 3
Yes, I love All Of Me for John Legend. Now, before you grab your pitchforks, allow me to explain. First off, John Legend https m youtube com watch v nfwlot6h_jm a voice of pure gold. He just has a lot of smoothness and raw, unbridled texture that it's just hard to deny. Second, although the melody isn't very complex and only uses the standard 4 chords of pop, it's what it does with those chords that's truly magnificent and adds a lot of class and elegance to the backing instrumentation, which is very important for a song of this caliber. Finally, I know a lot of people have complained about how he points out the negative things about the woman in question and says that he loves them as well as the positive things about her, but honestly, if you ask me, that actually works in this song's favor. It's a celebration of not only her more favorable features, but also her flaws, both of which are also things he points out in himself as well. Ultimately, what this is is an acknowledgement that both of them are human and that while they may have their flaws and mess up from time to time, they still love each other and are willing to stay faithful no matter what, and I have no idea how anyone could scoff at that. It's just a really beautiful song.
Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's move on to the really awesome stuff. Let's go.
10) Song: Talk Dirty
Artist: Jason DeRulo feat. 2 Chainz
Year-End Position: 6
Surprised to see this here? Yeah, well, so am I. Y'know what, though? Screw it. Talk Dirty is a fun song, and there is no and I mean NO denying that. The sample of Hermetico by Balkan Beat Box fits in flawlessly and offers a variety of melodic buildups and one hell of a crescendo with textured bongo percussion and just a ton of energy behind it. Jason's vocals mixed wonderfully with this production, and he sounds like he's really enjoying himself, which he should, so thumbs up there. As far as lyrical content goes, it's all pretty stupid, but I'd argue that very little of it actually comes off as offensive, and even then, not very. I'd argue that it handles the subject of going around the world and hooking up with different international chicks fairly well as very little actual disrespect is shown. Mainly what's shown is DeRulo (as well as 2 Chainz) and these various foreign women having a good time together (mainly through sex, but still). Hell, even 2 Chainz is riding this song fairly well with a good level of wordplay, decent flow, and actually sounding enthused about what he's rapping about. It would've been higher on the list, but."her pussy so good, I bought her a pet".yeah, I'd be lying if I said that there weren't at least *some* lyrics that weren't so good on here. Still, damn great song.
9) Song: White Walls
Artist: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. ScHoolboy Q & Hollis
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PLifPUIuicTopping my best list last year with his incredible LGBT-rights anthem Same Love, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis earn a spot on my best list this year with this well thought out, well produced piece of awesomeness. The flow from Macklemore is top notch, the beautiful chorus courtesy of Hollis is amazing, ScHoolboy Q's verse is pretty great, and the production is Ryan Lewis' finest to date. What really drives this one home (no pun intended), are the lyrics. Normally, I'm not a big fan of songs where it's just someone bragging about their car (as evidenced by Bugatti from last year), but this one sets itself apart from the rest because instead of saying "hey, look at this overpriced foreign car I bought that you'll never be able to afford because it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars," Mack has actually earned the right to brag about the Cadillac in question because it was actually an older one that was handed down to him from his grandfather which he actually put hard work and effort in to restoring. On top of that, it only cost him $30,000.00 to do so, and that's actually a figure quite a bit of people can actually afford. Brag rap? Yes. A damn good one? You better believe it.
8) Song: Leave The Night Jumpstart 1st grade download Artist: Sam Hunt
Year-End Position: 76
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuMiMBjcvWUProof positive that not all bro country is inherently bad, Leave Https m youtube com watch v nfwlot6h_jm Night On is a tune that is just filled to the brim with just pure happiness and energy. It does have a drum machine, but for the most part, it still sounds very very country, and when dealing with country music's sound, that's all I ask for. There is just so much texture, and it's so bubbly that it made me happier and happier with each subsequent listen. The production is really smooth, Hunt's vocals are really nice to listen to, and the lyrics about taking the love interest in question out for a night on the town are just so sweet and delivered with so much passion that I just couldn't help but smile. That's really the best way I can describe this song: the musical equivalent of one giant, joyous smile that puts anyone who looks at it in the best of moods.
7) Song: The Monster
Artist: Eminem feat. Rihanna
Year-End Position: 16
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHkozMIXZ8wAfter years of some.less than impressive material, Marshall Mathers finally returned with probably his best work in years with The Marshall Mathers LP2. Headlights may be my favorite song from the album, but this is definitely a close second. The beat is tight, Rihanna's chorus is beautiful, Eminem's flow is great, and he seems genuinely worried about his fame messing him up. All the stress really seems to be getting to him, and it really is disconcerting. He tackles the issue with tact and grace. and doesn't give us any reason to say "you don't sound like you have it so hard" because come on, Eminem has been through some tough s**t in his life. Let the guy vent a little. He also says that he'll endure it so long as it helps at least one person out in their life, and really, can you honestly say that's anything advance america reviews just admirable? I don't think so. This is just a well produced, well thought out, well delivered song that is just really great to listen to. Seriously if you don't own The Marshall Mathers LP2.what are you waiting for. then? Put down the Cheetos and go pick yourself up a copy because it's awesome.
6) Song: Ain't It Fun
Year-End Position: 47
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFEmTsfFL5AI've already reviewed this song, so if you wanna see that, you can click gpa requirements for south carolina state university, but let me just state that to answer the question presented in the title of the song, hell yeah, citi com fun. Seriously, I dare you not to jam out to this rockin' tune with tight instrumentation, Hayley Williams' high energy vocals, and the message that you won't be so hot out in the real world if you get everything handed to you while you're living at home. Admittedly, this song has worn off on me a bit, but I still really enjoy it. Keep up the good work, Paramore.
5) Song: Don't
Artist: Ed Sheeran
Year-End Position: 52
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD2rhdFRehUI gotta tell you guys something: I really like Ed Sheeran, and even though I'll never forgive him for inflicting Little Things on to us via One Direction, I still really enjoy his material, even his wgwag stuff. I liked The A Team, I liked Sing, and Lego House would've been on my best list last year had it been on the year end chart. I didn't think it was possible, but somehow he got better this year, giving us what is easily his best single to date. The instrumentation is upbeat and funky, the vocals are great, the narrative in the lyrics is amazing and make it really easy to sympathize with Sheeran (and justifiably so), and, well, what else do I need to say about it? Take a listen, and experience the awesomeness for yourself.
4) Song: Birthday
Artist: Katy Perry
Year-End Position: 80
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqYxyd1iSNkNope. I'm not even gonna pretend to be sorry. This is a fun song that I like that I'm not gonna apologize for.
Has anyone else noticed that pop songs about birthdays generally suck? Birthday Sex by Jeremih, Birthday Song by 2 Chainz, Birthday by Selena Gomez, Birthday Cake by Rihanna, all of those songs blow. Why is it so hard to make a birthday themed pop song? It doesn't seem that hard. All you really have to do is get the mood right. Thankfully for us, we finally got a good one this year: this awesome tune. Everything about this song just works, from its disco inspired instrumentation in the vein of Last Friday Night (TGIF), Katy's high energy vocals, and let's not forget about the lyrics. Why is it that every birthday themed pop song always has to do with sex? Well, not this one (not all of it, anyway). Sure, there are some.less than subtle innuendos ("it's time to bring out the big balloons"), but I can easily forgive them because the main point of the song isn't sex, but rather that a guy is feeling down and that she just wants to brighten up his day up. I defy you if you're able to scoff at that. Do I really need to say anything else? It's just a really bouncy song that's a hell of a lot of fun to listen to.
3) Song: Demons
Artist: Imagine Dragons
Year-End Position: 23
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWRsgZuwf_8I've waited far too long to talk about this song, and I am so glad I'm now getting the opportunity to.
I love everything about this song. It is easily, in my opinion, Imagine Dragons' best song to date. The instrumentation starts off soft and calm to keep Dan Reynolds' sad sounding (and amazing) vocals in the central spotlight. then all of a sudden we have a punch of energy from the chorus hitting you at full force, and the way it alternates between the two really works for me. All of these elements suit the lyrics of a guy facing his demons and taking on his personal problems head on thank you for smoking streaming free as they are dark, somber, and serious, which is exactly how it's supposed to sound. I loved this song from the first time I heard it last summer, walmart asurion sign in I still love it and play it on my iPod to this day. It is that awesome.
2) Song: Habits (Stay High)
Artist: Tove Lo
Year-End Position: 32
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh2LWWORoiMI've heard many people say that this song "doesn't really have a deeper meaning" and "just glorifies drug use," but quite frankly, I couldn't disagree more. I found this song to be about a woman for who the pain of the break up she went through is so great that she'll do anything from drugs to sex to clubbing in order to keep the guy in question as far away from her mind as possible. A lot would argue that it's not a song about a relationship as she doesn't mention the partner outside of the chorus, but my rebuttal is that that symbolizes her trying to forget the guy in question, something that IS mentioned in the chorus. Also, that bridge where she says bank of america new jersey corporate office in my play pretend, where the fun ain't got no end, oh, can't go home alone again, need someone to numb the pain." What she's saying is that she's in this rut where she's pretending to have fun, but she's really just fooling herself to keep her mind off of the pain she's currently experiencing, and she's looking for someone to go home with in order to quell her fear of being lonely. If that doesn't tug at your heartstrings, I don't know what will. Not to mention that the production and vocals on this song are superb. They're downplayed during the verses and bridge to show how burnt out all of this can make someone, and the chorus is full of energy and just exudes raw emotion, and coupled with Tove Lo's strident vocals, it all coincides perfectly. What could possibly beat it out? Well.
1) Song(s): Best Day Of My Life/Come With Me Now/Pompeii
Artist(s): American Authors/KONGOS/Bastille
Year-End Position: 31/88/12
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F90Cw4l-8NYYep, the rock music from this year was so amazing that I had to include not one, not two, but three songs for my #1 spot, and for good reason because they're all really freaking awesome.
Let's start with Best Day Of My Life, the most joyous of the three. Now, If there's one thing I know about music, it's that if a song is going to put you in a mood, it really has to get the tone right, especially a song about being extremely happy, and while I do like Happy by Pharrell Williams (the song that wound up being the #1 song on the year-end chart this year), it wore off on me as it kinda felt more like it was trying to force me in to being happy rather than letting it happen on its own. Don't get me wrong, I do still enjoy Happy, but I feel like if you're gonna create a song like that that'll stay with the listener, you gotta let the process naturally. Fortunately for us, this awesome piece of Indie Rock was here to solve that. Everything about this song works, from its feel good lyrics, the plucky banjo, the high energy vocals and instrumentation, everything.
Then we have Come With Me Now, the most energetic of the three, and man, what isn't there to enjoy about this song? This is the closest we've come to having a metal song on the charts in a long time, and I can't really think that's a bad thing, mostly because to say that the song is damn awesome would be an understatement. Everything about this song is just near perfection from the stomping energy, the awesome sound of the accordion and guitars with that really driving percussion, the way the instrumentation and rough, loud vocals blend in to this cacophonous explosion that's just extremely powerful and works like gangbusters, the lyrics describing a man leaning towards his own demise and just getting that one final burst of craziness and insanity in before he tumbles in to the dark pits of Hell, not to mention the little sprinkles of agnosticism throughout, is it really any wonder why this song is so highly praised by critics and is topping nearly everyone's best list? Honestly, I think if I was only allowed to pick one song from the group to top this list, it most likely would be this one.
Finally, we have Pompeii, the most interesting of the three. This was one of the first hits of 2014, and really, I can't be happier that this song got so popular. Something darker than what we're used to seeing on the charts, Pompeii is an excellent track that takes an interesting concept and turns it in to something absolutely mind-blowing. The song is about two corpses frozen in their ashy demise by the destruction and annihilation of the city of Pompeii caused by Mt. Vesuvius' eruption of 79 AD, essentially boiling down to them left wondering where to go after the chaos and wondering what should be dealt with first, the physical mess and rubble left behind or one's spirituality, mortality, and confession of one's sins. That's really deep, man. Oh, and you bet your ass the backing instrumentation aids the tone of the song and really helps it out. Seriously, it's amazing with its hollow feel, tribal chanting in the background, melodic synths, driving percussion, seriously, it's excellent. Lastly, let's not forget the main star of the show, Dan Smith's vocals. He just has more than enough raw emotion and charisma that you need to pull this type of thing off. In the hands of a less charismatic performer, this song would've been placed at probably #3 or #4 on this https m youtube com watch v nfwlot6h_jm, but Smith just really has enough of an emotive presence to really push this thing over the top.
So yeah, a song about the feeling of elation that doesn't just say happy over and over, a dark, twisted rock song that just screams of going crazy, and a dark, macabre song about the destruction of an ancient city. Who could ask for anything more? Hope you guys liked the lists. I'll check back you all in 2015. Until then, Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a very happy new year.

I love Taylor Swift. In ninth grade, my friend and I sat in the back of her minivan watching videos on her portable DVD player. She popped in TSwift’s “Our Song” music video and thus began my following of Queen Tay. In 2008, I listened to the wonderful songs of Fearless on my walk to school, imagining scenes of kissing in the rain and the amazing music video that is “You Belong With Me.” Last week my boyfriend bought me 1989, adding to my collection, for a total of 52 Taylor Swift songs. It seems only fair that with the release of this newest album, I dedicate a blog post to the lovely Taylor.
So let’s talk about the most popular of the songs on 1989, “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” and their music videos. The “Shake It Off” music video may be my favorite TSwizzle music video, which is saying a lot considering the “You Belong With Me” and “22” videos. Agh, actually that’s a really big claim to make. I don’t know which one is my favorite. I love all three of them. Anyways, not the point. The “Shake It Off” video is amazing; if you haven’t seen it, you need to watch it now. It features Taylor Swift accepting and loving the fact that she can’t dance for her life. The video shows a ton of amazing dancers doing their thing, and Taylor looking like a giant goofball in the best way possible.
The best thing about this video is that we’ve all been there – in a place where we totally don’t belong, where it’s clear that we don’t fit in, and where we just aren’t as good at something as our peers. But Taylor doesn’t care. She rocks it. The whole point of the song is that she doesn’t care what her haters may think or say about her; she’s going to keep being herself and just shake it off. TSwift encourages weirdness and silliness and I love that about her. Check out this music video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfWlot6h_JM
Okay, now onto “Blank Space.” This video was only released today and already has over 4 million views. While this video is evidence of Taylor Swift’s sub-par acting skills, it also highlights some AMAZING fashion. I could barely pay attention to the story of the wealthy cheating lover and Taylor’s seeming insanity because I was so caught up with Taylor’s amazing clothing. Below are some screen grabs of the video featuring the styles Taylor puts on. (And check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-ORhEE9VVg.)
Hold on, let’s get a close-up on this.
Next we see Taylor in this beautiful ensemble:
Woah there, let’s zoom in on this.
Then there’s this gorgeous outfit:
And then even on a horse she’s stylin’.
Even without a good look at this one, we know it’s amazing:
Then she rocks this high-waisted shorts outfit:
And finally, she kills it with this leopard-print masterpiece:
And let’s not forget about her incredible makeup throughout the video (and always):
Back to Life
by Rachael Phillips
This song, Back to Life, was written by a dear friend of mine from the four months I spent in Cape Town, South Africa this year.

I was recently introduced to the musical talents of Jon Bellion – you probably were too, although you might not know it. A good friend of mine played one of his songs for me the other day and I was instantly in love. If you’ve heard Eminem and Rihanna’s recent song, “The Monster,” then you’ve also heard his music; Jon Bellion wrote the hook for that song, which, honestly, was my favorite part before I even knew about him. Bellion is sexy, silly, extremely talented, and only 22 years old. If you check him out on YouTube, you can watch him creating his music – for the most part, he does all the parts of his music himself. He harbor one credit union phone number the music, does the claps, makes the noises, and sings; it’s pretty incredible. His song, “The Https m youtube com watch v nfwlot6h_jm Years” is available on iTunes, but if you want to check out my favorite song, “Dead Man Walking,” you can find it here:

Before Taylor Swift wore the Swan Lake costumes in log on to chase online banking Shake It Off video, Tchaikovsky composed the heart-wrenching score for Swan Lake 138 years ago and Ballet West’s founder Willam Christensen created the first full-length American production in 1940.
Swan Lake is the ultimate classical ballet. Filled with more than 50 dancers including ballerinas in dazzling tutus and a prince looking for love, Ballet West brings the Swan Lake fairy tale to life in Salt Lake City through February 15, 2015 at Capitol Theatre.
Premiered in 1877 by the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Ballet West’s Artistic Director Adam Sklute first re-staged this production in 2010, and builds upon his quest to showcase the simple truth and humanity of the characters.
Swan Lake begins with the evil Baron von Rothbart—a cold and spiteful sorcerer who appears as half man, half bird of prey—abducting young Princess Odette and transforming her into a swan.
Next, we meet Prince Siegfried (danced by Principal Rex Tilton) on his 21st birthday. His mother, the Queen, hopes that he will soon marry and ascend to the throne, but the prince is uninterested. His friend, Wolfgang, entertains the court with the story of the bird creature who lives in the ruins by the lake and captures young women, turns them into swans and holds them in his power. At just that moment a flock of swans fly overhead and the party goes off in search of them.
At the lake, Prince Siegfried and the audience meet the beautiful swans—who become human by the light of the moon. Lead by the swan queen Odette (Principal Christiana Bennett) and Tall Swans, soloists Allison DeBona and Emily Adams, the swan maidens are mesmerizing in their elegant, feathered white tutus and graceful, avian-like movements.
The four Cygnets, who perform a rhythmic variation in perfect unison was, in a word, astounding.
Act III begins at Prince Siegfried’s birthday in the castle. Princesses are on hand in hopes of winning Siegfried’s hand in marriage. Baron von Rothbart and his daughter Odile—who has been turned into the evil twin of Odette through black magic—are the last to arrive.
Principal Christiana Bennett, who also dances the role of Odile, does as convincing a job of portraying the conniving evil twin as she does the demure Odette. The prince and Odile dance and the fluidity between Tilton and Bennett is magical. The prince finally declares his love for Odile (believing she is Odette).
To the horror of those gathered, Rothbart reveals himself as the wicked sorcerer and celebrates Siegfried’s betrayal of Odette.
The final act opens at the lake. Fog envelopes the swans as they believe that all hope of breaking the spell cast upon them is lost. The prince arrives and Odette forgives him. Rothbart is furious and a fight ensues. The lovers realize that they must throw themselves on the rocks below to break the sorcerer’s spell. Siegfried and Odette are reunited and as the sun rises, the former swans emerge from the mist as young women freed from their swan forms.
Visually and artistically stunning from the corps to the queen, this production of Swan Lake is heightened further by the Ballet West Orchestra that performs the hauntingly beautiful Tchaikovsky score admirably and brings depth and roslyn savings bank east meadow range of emotions to the performance.
Swan Lake could quite possibly be Ballet West’s finest production of the season.
Swan Lake continues at Capitol Theatre Wednesday-Sunday, February 11-15 with evening performances at 7:30 p.m. and matinee performances at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at ArtTix.org.
