What is the meaning behind the official video for "Wake Me Up" by Avicii?
Before answering, can I just say that I love how Avicii's "AV" logo, which is tattooed on the arms of the heroines in this video, looks like the original Quora upvote/downvote buttons. There, on her shoulder^My interpretation of "Wake Me Up" is that there is a place for everyone in life. The two heroines are outcasts in their rural home town because of their appearance. Everyone else in town dresses quaintly, while the heroines dress like fashionable city kids. The people in town give them disapproving looks when they walk the streets. The older of the two eventually makes a horseback journey to the city, searching for life. She ends up in Los Angeles, where the streets are empty. The scene is reminiscent of the pilot of episode of The Walking Dead, when Deputy Grimes goes into Atlanta on a horse, also searching for life. Wake Me Up videoWalking Dead The heroine enters the L.A. Fashion District, where she discovers a fashionably-dressed woman. The woman also has a AV tattoo. The woman leads her to a party, full of similarly dressed, modern party people. Our heroine returns to the town, wakes the young one, and tells her that they will go to a place where they belong. In the final shot, they leave the small town, heading to the city. The video places a high emphasis on fashion (clothing making a statement about you, finding yourself in the Fashion District, etc) because it was cross promoted by Ralph Lauren's Denim & Supply. I would not be surprised if everyone in the video is wearing something out of the Ralph Lauren catalog. Macy's| Introducing Denim & Supply At the 1:30 mark in the video, you will notice that the writing on the saddle says "Denim & Supply - Ralph Lauren." It's not exactly subtle.
Country music video with guy chasing girl through streets?
Maybe Brooks and Dunn, Lost and Found? I lost her trail on a Friday night She was gone before I got home She'd been getting restless In that big house all alone I've been up and down these city streets For three nights in a row And lord it's hard to find that girl When she gets the urge to go It's kinda like a lost and found In a border town Askin' bout a diamond ring They just look at you Like you've lost your mind Say they haven't seen a thing But I know she's been here lately I can still smell her perfume And she gets crazy on a full moon And I know she'll be coming back Her car is waiting right outside But, I don't want to think about Who's taking her for a ride And her unpredictability Is what I love about her best Lord I've got to find her quick Before she does something I regret It's kinda like a lost and found In a border town Askin' bout a diamond ring They just look at you Like you've lost your mind Say they haven't seen a thing But I know she's been here lately I can still smell her perfume And she gets crazy on a full moon She's out there somewhere Burnin up the night Somehow I've got to run her down I'm running out of time It's kinda like a lost and found In a border town Askin' bout a diamond ring They just look at you Like you've lost your mind Say they haven't seen a thing But I know she's been here lately I can still smell her perfume And she gets crazy on a full moon It's kinda like a lost and found In a border town Askin' bout a diamond ring They just look at you Like you've lost your mind Say they haven't seen a thing But I know she's been here lately I can still smell her perfume And she gets crazy on a full moon
R&P, has anyone ever seen a moose wandering their city streets? What are some "wild animal" related songs?
Yesterday we had a young moose that must have strayed from its Mother. It probably followed the river system from the Rocky Mountains that eventually leads to the city. He wandered all over the downtown business districts, China Town etc, until he was caught. Here's a 20 picture slide show... http://www.calgarysun.com/news/alberta/2... Here's the story: http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2010/... Calgary Alberta Canada (where I live) has a population of just over 1 million. Here's a few pictures of a portion of the downtown area of the city: http://www.calgaryartsdevelopment.com/fi... http://www.msoci.com/andrea/archives/Calgary.gif http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d3/Calgary4-Szmurlo.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/32/PengrowthSaddledomeNight.jpg Has anyone else ever had any sort Wild Life encounter(s) within the city they live in? I've had several here over the years, including a mountain lion, black bear, skunks, badger, and coyotes. Music Question: Name some songs about wild animals. Thanks.
Is it legal to walk around in public in your underwear?
Is it legal, as long as you are wearing non-thong underwear and a bra? Just curious...because I was thinking of starting a National Walk Around In Your Underwear Day, if there is not one already. But I don't really feel like getting arrested and sent to Juvenile Hall. Does anyone else think this would be funny??? I think it's hilarious... :-)

Why do you waste time playing video games when you could be out enjoying the world?
Let me tell you the story of a deeply intelligent person who “wasted” a lot of his time growing up playing video games.My boyfriend and I met in college, where we were both part of the honors program. He was brilliant in so many ways. An amazing musician, a top-level scholar, an accomplished athlete, a humble yet fearless leader. What I didn’t know when we first started dating is that he was also a devoted gamer.This didn’t make sense to me at first. Forget my own secret Sims addiction. This guy was so accomplished, but here he was, telling me that in high school, he used to play HOURS of video games, sacrificing sleep. Granted, he still managed to have a social life and get good grades, but with his talents, wouldn’t he be better off doing something else?Fast forward five years into our relationship. We are now “adults” and my company asks me to move to Germany. I am excited but also terrified – how will he find a job in this extremely competitive job market? He sends off application after application, but they all want someone who speaks German. We’re both anxious all the time. What if he can’t stay?Eventually, he starts getting offers. But the companies aren’t quite the perfect fit. Until… he is invited to work at a video game company, which releases some of the most popular games. Part of his interview? Defeating a boss in the game he’ll be working on.Moral of the story is – don’t judge someone by passions you deem as “less than.” Video games provide many people with relaxation, community, and an opportunity to build a world based off their imagination or to learn storytelling skills. My boyfriend and I are objectively successful young people, who travel and see the world. But sometimes, it just feels good to live in your imagination. And other times, your hobbies lead you to rewarding careers and experiences. There are healthy ways to have a relationship with video games. Too much of anything is a bad thing. But video games are not objectively bad, or objectively a waste of your time. We all have different hobbies. And that’s okay.
What is that one thing Indian parents are most scared of?
Alrighty, the rant is due! *evil laugh*Let’s see, in my 27 years of life, what are some things I have seen that scares my parents?Daughters staying unmarried post 25 years of age. Unfortunately for my parents, both their daughters (27 and 30 yrs old) are unmarried. Sorry not sorry!Society asking intrusive questions aka ‘the chaar log syndrome’. Even today it disheartens me to say that society plays a big role in the decisions people make in India. And mostly in a negative way.Daughters gaining a tanned complexion and not finding bridegrooms due to that. My mom has told me not to go in the sun too much because of the aforementioned reason. (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA sorry mom, I am a field engineer :P) This is somewhat a valid reason, because atleast in India, there is a clear discrimination against dark-skinned people. But that doesn’t mean it’s something to follow through although I understand where it comes from.Children becoming too modern due to gaining higher levels of education. This is what was found as the reason to my sister and I not getting married in an arranged marriage like they expected us to. We both* hold graduate degrees from Europe (*for me, almost there) and I am about to join a prestigious PhD scholarship programme while my sister is an accomplished electrical engineer in a major MNC in the UK. Who cares, amiright?TICK TOCK TICK TOCK. That’s the sound of my biological clock ticking. To a slow halt. The moment I turn 30. And that means no grandkids for my parents. Such a shame, I know.Unstable professions. A stable government job in India = Mission accomplished. It doesn’t matter if there is no technical advancement or if it puts me in a circle of very conservative people who I barely got along with. It is a stable well-paid job so I shouldn’t be too demanding and should just suck it up. (actual words)Rape, rape, rape. Do not go out when it’s dark. I understand this fear completely. I have lived in several parts of India to totally understand how unsafe it feels to step outside at night. This is an advice my parents still give me, even after 2 years in Europe where I honestly feel the safest I have ever felt! But Indian parents worry about that a lot, and I get it. :)I just hope that someday soon they will see that marriage and reproduction are not really the only goals in life. I value peace of mind above all of that.
Are parents generally blind to their childrens fault? why or why not?
Not always. Sometimes, children do things so often that they stop noticing. I know when I babysit, sometimes the kids do things so often that I turn a blind eye. There are sometimes that I don't turn a blind eye, such as if kids don't wash their hands after they use the bathroom, or if they physically harm someone. The handwashing is very important becuase when you are around kids a lot and they don't wash their hands after using the bathroom, germs are EVERYWHERE, and sickness spreads faster than usual this way! I let some things slide, such as sitting too close to the television or eating on the couch when they aren't supposed too, but i will mention it too them if it happens too often. Some parents though strive for the perfect child, and when their child isn't perfect, they do things so that they think they are, like pretend they didn't see their child hit someone or do things like that. It really depends on the issue and the parent. I notice that the "boon dock" type people in my community punish their children for little things, like sniffling or walking slowly, but one woman, when her child stole a candy bar from a store, hit his face, then asked what was in his pocket. Once she saw, she just kept walking, and didn't even say anything past "What are you hiding?" in a mean tone. she didn't even take him back in the store! In the upper end of my city, parents talk with their children and tell them "no hitting" or "don't do that" and follow throug. It can be repetitive, but after the first couple times, children get the point and stop behavior. Other minor behavior will get a gentle whisper or reminder of what to do properly. Honestly, it depends. I find the better off parents don't turn a blind eye, and the poorer ones do, but that's just my observation! I can't really say for sure...it all depends on certain factors!
