Freezing Curtain

Reactions: 

This was taken just outside town in Bainsvlei earlier this week and it is still cold! The weatherman expects it to remain so until after the weekend as well. Records for low temperatures have been broken all over the country, so much for Global Warming! But this amazing time lapse of an Orange Sun Oozing will hopefully warm you up after that chilly curtain.
The chilly weather made me come up with this freezing playlist for the Screaming Tangerines although Orange Sun Oozing would also make a good title for some warm songs...

I never knew Metallica was so cold fixated though? Steve pointed out that one of the titles was ermmm... wrong and not cold but gold related. Blame today's kids and textspeak! I should check the CD before committing to rip...
For the lyrics of the day I have chosen Ring of Ice sung by Jennifer Rush...

Ring Of Ice

We lay awake silent in the dark.
You don't have to hide the trace
emptyness left it's mark.
Ring of ice
ring of ice 'round your heart.
Ring of ice
ring of ice break apart.
We are lonely people wearin' a ring of ice
Dancin' in the night
tryin' to disguise all the lies behind.
Countless empty lies wearing a ring of ice.
I walk alone searchin' for a sign
Someoneelse must be alive with warmth behind their eyes.
Ring of ice
ring of ice 'round your heart. . . .
All the lonely people wearing a ring of ice
. . .
All the lonely people wearin' a ring of ice
Dancin' in the night
tryin' to disguise
All the lies behind surrounded by a ring of ice.
Dancin' in the night
tryin' to disguise
All the lies behind surrounded by a ring of ice.
Dancin' in the night
tryin' to disguise . ..
Dancin' in the night
tryin' to disguise . . .

"Time for the weather report. It's cold out folks. Bone crushing cold. The kind of cold which will wrench the spirit out of a young man, or forge it into steel." Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Lost and Found, 1992
