I took Martin to the airport on Monday. It’s a long drive, nearly three hours one way. The drive was uneventful and the weather was gorgeous. On the way home I decided to semi-document the drive. I recently found a case with a bunch of old mix CDs I’d made. We’ve been working our way around that case since the find. I had one in on Monday. So here it is… Illinois countryside, in bits, accompanied by the track that happened to be playing at the time. There are a few of these, peruse them at your leisure, or not. I find this amusing… but then I would. It combines music, driving, and a bit of the tech stuff I love. The first video is a tad long. Feel free to skip part of it should you need to move on. This is just one of the quirky things I find myself doing. Enjoy…
This guy is inspirational. If you don’t feel good after listening to this then I don’t know what could make you feel good. Besides which, after listening you might also want to tune into some classical music. This is a lovely talk.
I know this VIDEO is viral all over the web now, but I just happened to see it this morning and thought… hmmm… Mary… Martin… get on those dancin’ shoes!! Seriously though… this is great. If this video doesn’t make you feel good, I don’t know what will. Congrats to J&K.
Karen and I watch a few TV shows regularly. One of them is So You Think You Can Dance. It’s basically a talent show for dancers. During the course of the show the dancers are paired into couples and every week a guy and a girl is voted off, until they get down to the top 10. This show is pretty amazing if you haven’t watched it. The dancing is phenomenal and the choreography is… spectacular at times. Last night there was a piece, choreographed by Mia Michaels, that was breath taking and very emotional. Check it out.
