A música é das melhores coisas do Mundo. Conforta, anima e amansa a tristeza. Está em todo o lado e nasce espontaneamente. Ao vivo, arrepia e torna-se inesquecível.

Music is one of the best things in the world. It comforts, cheers and soothes the sadness. It's everywhere and it is born spontaneously. Seen live, it gives the chills and becomes unforgettable.

one of the best things in the world
Not your Grandfather's cereal!  Well, actually it probably is, if your Grandfather is British

Weetabix is the best thing in the world.

I know, it looks kind of like shredded wheat crossed with dried cow patty. But here are some reasons to venture forth into a hearty bowlful:

1.) The name: "Weetabix." It's the double "e"s that make it the best. Why, it practically begins with the word "whee!"

2.) You can choose what texture you want your Weetabix to be. Pour your milk of choice on top of the Weeta-biscuits and it will soak right in -- then you can mash it up into oatmeal-esque porridge, or spoon off soggy chunks. Pour said milkstuff around the biscuits, however, and note how only the edges get damp, while the interior portion remains crispy! This is sensational.

3.) Fortified with vitamins!

4.) Organic!

5.) According to their website, each serving of Weetabix contains 537 kilojoules of energy. I think that's enough to punch through a wall!

6.) Also from the website: "Crammed with all the natural goodness of wholegrain, you can almost taste the long hot summers and gentle spring rain in every bite, resulting in the softest, plumpest grain imaginable." Doesn't that just make you want to fuck?

7.) It's made in the UK and is in fact the best-selling cereal in England, so Jarvis Cocker probably eats it.

8.) The yellow box also gives it a vaguely IKEA-esque Swedish flair that brightens up your breakfast nook and makes you feel cosmopolitan.

Globetrotting jetsetters have a separate suitcase for Weetabix

9.) Weetabix had a "wheat art" contest, and here is the winner, by a Yorkshire UK farmer who calls it "Naughty Puppy."

Naughty Puppy

10.) Weetabix actually kind of doesn't taste like anything. It is the tabula rasa of cereals. A blank chalkboard upon which to scrawl your own individual gastronomic logarithm. An empty journal yearning only to be filled with one's florid personal poetry of milks, fruits and sugars. Whee!

Being a celebrity is the 'best thing in the world' say children

Children under 10 think being a celebrity is the "very best thing in the world" but do not think quite as much of God, a survey has revealed.

The poll of just under 1,500 youngsters ranked "God" as their tenth favourite thing in the world, with celebrity, "good looks" and being rich at one, two and three respectively.

O melhor do mundo é entrarmos num estádio à borla, que por acaso é do nosso clube, participar num anúncio, filmado por amigos, com amigos e ainda por cima sermos pagos por isso.

The best thing in the world is get a free pass to our team's stadium, participate in a comercial, shooted by friends, with friends, and get payed for it.

Nova Iorque. Chegar ao Central Park ao fim da tarde, deitar-me na imensidão da sua relva ao pôr do sol, olhar à minha volta e, na companhia de um bom amigo e ao som de uma linda, generosa e sincera melodia, perceber, no instante em que filmava este vídeo, que a Arte está em todo lado, que existem no planeta Terra lugares perfeitos, o quão o Mundo e as suas pessoas são bonitos, que existe pelo menos um sítio no mundo onde posso ser muito feliz e que são estes momentos únicos que fazem a vida valer a pena e que devemos lutar para que ela valha a pena, porque quando o fizermos vamos saber automaticamente que fizemos bem. New York. Arriving at Central Park by the end of the afternoon, lying down in the immensity of its grass at sunset, looking around and with a good friend and a beautiful, generous and sincere melody realize, in the instant I was shooting this video, that Art is everywhere; that there are perfect places on planet Earth; how much the world and the people are pretty; that there is at least one place in the world where I can be happy; and that these are the unique moments that make life worth living and that we should struggle to make it worthwhile. Because when we do that we'll automatically know that we did good.

Porque Mãe.... é Mãe.
E é, realmente, das melhores coisas do mundo.

Because a Mother... is a Mother.
And she is, indeed, one of the best things in the world.

Ele e o nascer do sol com ele.

Tudo o que já vivemos e tudo o que ainda vamos viver. As viagens. Os olhos pequeninos da minha mãe e o sorriso adolescente do meu pai. Os amigos. Hoje e sempre. Em qualquer lado.

Him and the sunrise with him.

All that we've lived and that we'll still be living. The trips. The small eyes of my mother and the teenager smile of my father. Friends. Today and forever. Anywhere.

WHAT'S the best thing in the world ?
June-rose, by May-dew impearled;
Sweet south-wind, that means no rain;
Truth, not cruel to a friend;
Pleasure, not in haste to end;
Beauty, not self-decked and curled
Till its pride is over-plain;
Light, that never makes you wink;
Memory, that gives no pain;
Love, when, so, you're loved again.
What's the best thing in the world ?
— Something out of it, I think.

Elizabeth Browning, England

As melhores coisas do mundo são:

Sonhos de Amor

Porque é o amor rebelde?
Porque se pavoneia em vez de assentar?
Porque se liberta como uma chama, iluminando uma ponta e escurecendo outra?

Encontra-te comigo aí. No meio da escuridão meia iluminados por essa chama.
E corre, corre comigo segurando a minha mão e libertando-me.
Leva-me a experimentar a leveza da água, a iluminação do frio dela.
Leva-me a sentir a erva e os paus a partirem-se debaixo dos meus pés descalços.
Salta comigo. E depois rebola-te até ficarmos cheios de areia.
E à luz da lua beija-me com o mar.
Aí sim, diz-me que me amas,
Porque o amor é o deixar as sensações do mundo percorrerem livremente nas nossas veias.

Joana Prates, Chacaua, México

You said: "I wanna to die for you"
You cry and I'm repeating all the stories again.
You're standing there for so long,
And it's so hard, that I finally found,
it's heaven in your eyes.Innocence?
Why? Why we survive?
It's you, and you three million ways to make noise (to make me smile�)
You really don't know, you really don�t see,
you really got a light I'll find you
Because you are a nice and sweet boy and,
I wrote this song just for yourself.
And you have a nice and sweet girl.
You are a nice and sweet boy,
I wrote this song just for yourself
Just say you can lie,
dissolving all the truth of your love
But you can't say no, you try to,
and I try to be around you
Substitute your only trouble by
a bottle full of water just to prove this love about you
I someone ever found her,
put a sign inside you:
There's only one love.
It's only one love,
and it's only your love."
Depois envio ums fotos minhas e um texto meu
Por agora quero que saibas que sim!!!
Francisco Brandão, Portugal

A melhor coisa do mundo… é ver o teu sorriso, sentir o teu perfume, receber o teu toque, estremecer com o teu sussurro, provar o sabor suave dos teus lábios… é o estar apaixonado pelo teu ser e poder amar o teu corpo… é o sentir-te perto, perto, perto… é a sensualidade com que fazes tudo… é o poder olhar-te nos olhos sem os desviar por nada… é a atenção que me dás e tudo o mais que eu egoistamente guardo para mim… sim, a melhor coisa do mundo és tu. The best thing in the world... is seeing your smile, feeling your perfume, be touched by you, shivering with your whisper, tasting the sweet flavour of your lips... It's being in love with your being and being able to love your body... It's feeling you near, near, near... It's the sensuality you put in everything you do... It's being able to look you straight in the eyes without looking away... It's the attention you give me and all that I, selfishly, keep for myself... Yes, the best thing in the world is you.

Ver o meu Vasquito a brilhar na noite...

See my Vasquito shine at night...

Tiago Martins, Portugal

A minha filha cheira a ...fruta madura e sumarenta, a bolo de chocolate acabado de fazer, a terra molhada depois de uma trovoada em Marvão, a pão fresco, a creme Mustela, ao alecrim, rosmaninho e alfazema que nos crescem no quintal. A minha filha cheira a todas as coisas boas e puras que me consigo lembrar, e é quando a tenho aninhada em mim e lhe sinto todos os cheiros bons, que mais me apercebo que não pode haver felicidade maior.
My daughter smells of... ripe and juicy fruit, fresh chocolate cake, the wet soil after a storm in Marvão, fresh bread, Mustela cream, the rosemary, bushmint and lavender that grow in our backyard. My daughter smells of all the good and pure things that I can remember of and it is when she is all cuddled up in me that I truly realize that there is no greater happiness.
