Strength is the ability to do something that takes a huge amount of energy for a very limited period of time.
With endurance you'll be able to repeat a less intense effort many times without getting tired.
While at the gym you can control which one you need, out, in the real world, you never know whether you'll need strength or endurance to complete everyday tasks.
This is why you should build your routine around both elements.
Don't just focus on one.
As far as I am concerned, I would get to the bottom of the matter while listening to this surprising bootleg, sweating on the sofa.

Where is my home?
It’s not where I was born (that was in a hospital), it’s not where I grew up (that is my past). It isn’t where my mother language is spoken (that’s my family) nor where my stuff is stored up (a couple of cellars here and there).
My home is not where my heart is (inside my chest ??? Oh come on!) and it’s not so sweet... but it’s so comfy!
Where is my home? ;)

Have you ever received a tongue-twister as a declaration of love?
Poems and flowers are so outdated...
Maybe you needed something like that to realize that he/she is your good catch. ;)

|Der Himmel über Berlin - Wim Wenders (1987)|
Among all angels I prefer Berlin ones.
Because they wear heavy long coats firstly, but also because they long to be human.
It happens that a heavenly intangible love song reaches the ears of this guy from Berlin, the song is very soft and beautiful itself, but it wants to become human, so the Berlin guy provides it a heartbeat and some tones of laugh and tears...
Here’s the end of the story:

Horses can sleep while standing.
Horses remeber everything.
Horses are unpredictable,
creatures of habit and adorable.
Horses are like human beings:
if you take them by the head
they are prisoners and glad.

At the start you are caught by ethereal synthetic jingles and sweet playful vocals, then you can appreciate the fresh and jaunty building up of the rhythm... only when you got what lyrics say you realize that you are not on a tiny dance floor in heaven but in the middle of a very hot backseat situation.

Happy hour drums, slightly acid bass, tiny little moogy sounds, lowered vocals saying dada words, 2 or 3 distorted screams here and there, one clarinet, a cinematic arabian night explosion in the breakbeat.
To be served shaken (not stirred) on a cold dance floor.

There is a difference between emotions and feelings although they are often spoken of as being one and the same.
Emotions are intense but temporary.
Feelings are low-key, stable and sustained over time.
This track grows slowly, you don’t even notice it, no twist, no explosions of joy, no drama, but still, in the end, it makes you feel something.
The official video is a pop art tribute to some of the dance music icons of the last four decades, it worths a look.

After a forthnight of subtropical fear and loathe on the sofa rain has finally come, bringing a kind of inebriating thrill. In this euphoric (as fugitive) mood I've chosen a track a bit far from my taste (the original is way too epic for me ;P) with two interesting remixes.
Villa puts together a sort of electronic bolero with glacial synths drops and asian chorus inserts.
Gigamesh mixes baroquely french touch, italo and cosmic elements with a hi-nrg attitude.

These two gentlemen from Lithuania changed house music to something new with their smooth, delicate and chilly touch.
Well-chosen vocals, warm and gloomy at the same time, on a carpet of very polished but still powerful sound.
They already layed on this sofa with a slow feel.

Lately it has been devilishly hot here on the sofa, so much that it's even difficult to move or think, this situation won't change that soon, so the challenge is just accept it and survive.
To do that I think I'll need something chilly and sweet.
I' ve already hosted Dat Politics on my sofa, in that occasion they brought a frozen gift and here they are again, with the right words and the right mood at the right time.
