Our town paints fire hydrants. 2014’s theme is books! Here is their ode to John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars.
The artist for this hydrant is Paul Siegfried.  It’s located on the corner of Jefferson and Warren St, Huntington, IN 46750. Presented by the Huntington Arts Initiative, this year’s theme is Book, Look…and Listen!

The Twisted Trees of Slope Point, New Zealand

Slope Point is at the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand. The air streams loop the ocean, unobstructed for 2000 miles, until they reach Slope Point causing incredibly strong winds. In fact, the winds are so strong and persistent here that they perpetually warp and twist the trees into these crooked, wind-swept shapes. 

Slope Point is generally uninhabited, except for the herds of sheep that graze the land. There are no roads leading here, however backpackers regularly make the short 20-minute walk to see the fascinating tree formations that only Mother Nature could create. However there is no public access during the lambing season from September to November.

"My lawyer gives the same speech to everyone who wants to do business with me now. ‘Nicki is not one of those artists who allow her representatives to make decisions for her.’ I’m on conference calls all day with lawyers, accountants, and executives—people of power—and they treat me with respect. Because I command respect. I’m not cocky, but I deserve to know what’s going on. It’s my brand and my life. That’s my advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want—and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about."

Nicki Minaj, Elle, April 2013

1. Lola (Run, Lola, Run—one of the best movies EVAH!)

image

She can run and handle a gun. Her screams can crack glass. Sometimes she’s a cartoon. She speaks German and cuss words always sound better in other languages. AND she has the ability to turn back time and try things again if they don’t go her way. As far as needing a guy to rescue her? Heck no, she doesn’t! She’s rescuing HIM!

2. Arya Stark (Game of Thrones TV show and books by George R.R. Martin)

image

She’s tiny but that doesn’t matter. She can wield a sword, pass herself off as a guy if she needs to, learns different languages, and isn’t afraid to get dirty. This girl has it all, AND she’s technically a princess who has/had a WOLF.

3. Tris Prior (Divergent by Veronica Roth)

image

Man, how is she not kick-ass? Tattoos, train-jumping, and willing to sacrifice herself to right a wrong? I’ll take her. She likes her guy (and I do, too!) but when it comes down to it, she stands on her own and will do what it takes to make things right.

4. Felicity Smoak (Arrow—one of the best TV shows on air right now!)

image

I don’t think there are enough nerdy kick-ass females. Sure, Felicity isn’t the greatest at fighting, but she’s got the medical know-how to help Ollie out, and she can hack her way inside and out of any website or building she needs to. Ollie might be the brawn of the show (and we LOVE his brawn) but Felicity is the brains and Ollie wouldn’t be anywhere without her!

5. Buffy Summers (Buffy the Vampire Slayer—oh, if only this were still on TV!)

image

What can I say about the Chosen One, other than, damn! Girlfriend ain’t messing around! Whether she’s killing or kissing vampires, Buffy stops the apocalypse and still looks like she’s ready to party. She’s real, though, with real problems and I think that’s why I like her so much on top of her amazing kick-ass abilities.
