Day 21: Urbanized feat. Silvano – Helpless (from the film Jeffrey)

Remember how I said I wanted to finish this music thing by the end of the year? Well, here is my Letter U. Urbanized feat. Silvano – Helpless (from the film Jeffrey) was nigh impossible to find the correct version of. Everyone seems to think various remixes are the correct version. Sorry, none of those remixes do it for me. The version I want is the one from my Jeffrey soundtrack. Here it is. If you liked the film Jeffrey, you might enjoy the slideshow on the video. Otherwise, just enjoy the music.

Day 19: Symphony of Science – A Glorious Dawn

I know, I know. It’s been forever since I started this. …But I got stuck on “S’” and only now have I figured out that my beloved “Symphony of Science” totally starts with S. Now, a word of caution for this video. I know that many people have an issue with the use of Autotune (and in general I agree) and this video uses same. So, if you are one of those you may wish to skip this one. If not, I hope that you enjoy Symphony of Science – A Glorious Dawn:

At any given point of the usual mundane grind, I’d rather be doing something else. I’m quite the Rum Tum Tugger like that. Here are thirteen of the things I’d rather be doing (if I had the means. Hey. I can dream.)

13 Things I’d Rather Be Doing:
1. Sleeping. ‘Nuff said.
2. Relaxing on Anini Beach (Kauai) with friends.
3. Watching a Shakespearian comedy, live on stage.
4. Getting a massage.
5. Taking a nature walk in the Highlands.
6. Working on one of my WIPs.
7. Learning to paint landscapes…in the South of France.
8. Singing along to some classic rock (Metallica – Wherever I May Roam or AC/DC – Back in Black, for example) while driving a ’67 Mercury Cougar.
9. Playing at Disney World.
10. Going to a Silent Film theater with friends.
11. Having Tea at a nice little place with many tasty sandwiches.
12. Hanging out with Eideann and Catslyn watching whatever show they’re insisting I watch at that point.
13. Researching something that interests me. (I love compiling information.)

I am the LOLrus…1

Hello all. Here is the first installment of the “LOLrus” LOLcat paradigm. Let’s see what silliness I have discovered so far…

The caption pretty much says it all. Mind you…it’s never previously occurred to me that a walrus might need a cell phone. I suppose that LOLruses are special.



I’m thinking that these cats should stop taunting the LOLrus, because…

…He’s formed a bucket retrieval team! Look out!

No, seriously. Look out.

Perhaps taunting the LOLrus is not such a good idea…

I’m told that a “LOLrus” doesn’t actually need to be a walrus, but may also be any sort of aquatic mammal. Here is an example of this trend, using a cute otter…who is not amused.
