I’ve watched this five or six times now and I think the choreography is just amazing:


Check out this awesome song written and sung by the Rubin Sisters!

I saw this commerical for the first time a year or two ago at least. Maybe you have already seen it, I just had to share it today, today calls for something colorful and happy.

Here are a few two videos I found interesting. Normally I would post each of these as a separate post, but for some reason WordPress won’t let me embed them and wants to post them as links. Sigh. Anyway, enjoy!

My roommate found this hilarious video making fun of America’s idea of cricket!

These young people play in a recycled orchestra. It makes me ashamed of the dilapidated piano sitting rather forlornly and unplayed in my dinning room because a few of the keys stick, they would love to have something like that.

Summer concerts are the best! Summer concerts at sunset are even better! The first sunset came from a She and Him (I’ve posted this video before, this is a good excuse to post it again) concert at Wolf Trap. And the second from the Annapolis Irish Festival. The second sunset is just moments before we are all completely drenched by the most refreshing downpour ever (it was so hot and humid).

Happy feast of the Annunciation! Today is the day we celebrate Christ’s incarnation in the womb of the Virgin Mary! The song I am about to share with you is technically a Christmas song, but I think it fits today’s feast! And it is one of my favorites!

I’ve included the lyrics because they are so beautiful, I don’t want you to miss a word. My favorite line is the very first: The angel Gabriel from heaven came His wings as drifted snow his eyes as flame.

  1. The angel Gabriel from heaven came His wings as drifted snow his eyes as flame “All hail” said he “thou lowly maiden Mary, Most highly favored lady,” Gloria!
  2. “For know¬†a blessed mother thou shalt be, All generations laud and honor thee, Thy Son shall be Emanuel, by seers foretold Most highly favored lady,” Gloria!
  3. Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head “To me be as it pleaseth God,” she said, “My soul shall laud and magnify his holy name.” Most highly favored lady. Gloria!
  4. Of her, Emanuel, the Christ was born In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn And Christian folk throughout the world will ever say: “Most highly favored lady,” Gloria!

So this is what I’ve been up to . . .

Okay, so all the Irish-y stuff happened before I went MIA, but I never had a chance to show you!

This film, The Paperman, has been all over my Facebook news feed and I just had to share it. Isn’t it the sweetest thing you ever saw!

So I stumbled across this piece by Benjamin Britten, called Friday Afternoon op. #7 (Cuckoo). I guess it was used in Moonrise Kingdom, the film by Wes Anderson, which I haven’t seen yet and I mean to soon.

Anyway, I love this bit so much I made it my alarm. It’s perfect! I love waking up to it. I love it so much that I press snooze several times so I can hear it again and again (never mind that I would be pressing snooze anyway).
