A devastating disaster happened on April 15th. South Korean ferry Sewol sank which caused 28 deaths, 179 rescued, and most importantly 268 still missing out of 475 total who were on board. Shockingly, 325 of the passengers were high schoolers who were on a class field trip to Jeju island. On-board safety announcements informed passengers to stay in their places and put on life jackets to await rescues. Soon the ship began tilting over and there was no time for the passengers to escape. This horrible accident could have been prevented if the captain handled the situation professionally. However, he was THE FIRST one to get rescued and he abandoned the rest of the passengers who were trembling in fear. IF he made one brief announcement telling them to leave their room and come out to the deck immediately, this horrendous incident wouldn’t have happened. No word can express my condolences. Over 50 hours have passed and the cold water temperature even lowers the possibility of the remaining ones’ survival. I will pray for the lost ones and their families, the unknown survivors still trapped inside the ferry, and the brave divers/rescuers who are out in the cold and dangerous sea (considering the stormy weather these past 3 days). Keep strong South Korea and never lose hope.
유가족분들, 현재 어둡고 차가운 바다에서 공포에 떨고있을 실종자분들, 궂은 날씨에도 불구하고 자신의 목숨을 걸며 구조 작업에 열중하시는 구조대원분들, 그리고 지금 초조하게 이 상황을 지켜보는 모든 분들 희망 잃지 마시고 좋은 결과가 있기를 기도해봅시다. 최대한 많은 인원이 돌아왔으면 좋겠습니다. 조금만 더 버텨주세요.
Adam sure changes his lyrics a lot before release. Maybe I’m Dreaming has “Staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore”, while Ocean Eyes has “Staring up at the STARS that aren’t there anymore”. Then we have the different lyrics in Dreams Don’t Turn to Dust as seen in the Making of ATBAB video on VEVO. The bridge is completely different even:
It’s like dying to live, squinting to see All of that distant thunder that never made sense to me As every pearl turns muddy to rust I’ll feather the breeze ‘cause dreams don’t turn to dust
Sky Sailing is even included. Consider Brielle: “Breathing the sweet ocean air makes a shy boy aware that he could be free” vs. “Breathing the sweet forest air makes a blue bird aware that she could be free”. And now, Beautiful Times is added to this!! As others may have noticed on Instagram, the caption included fits the verses. Sung to the melody of the vine, the lyrics read:
A cold panic In the Atlantic Turned the Titanic Into a ghost town
My best guess is that it’s in place of:
A slow motion Wave on the ocean Stirs my emotion Up like a raincloud
But I could be wrong. Just thought I’d share this lovely find with you!!
From this weekend, the UK TV channel Horror is screening episodes of classicDoctor Who—from the First Doctor to the Seventh—and have put together a beautiful animated trailer to whet appetites and generally encourage viewers.
And they’ve done such a good job you could easily use it to encourage fans of the recent series to dip a toe in classic Who waters
