My vacation has been awesome. I got to see so many of my favorite people! The time flew by in a blur of good food, late nights, and laughing…so much laughing. On my last day in Bloomington, I used a gift card and bought the soundtrack for “The Hobbit.” I think of it as musical… Continue reading Consoling Myself with Musical Dwarves
So…I want to share two videos with you today because, well…they are awesome. Both videos are already popular…I just want to make sure you don’t miss them! The creativity in the music video makes me like the song even more! I think stop motion music videos can sometimes seem clumsy, but this was so well done!… Continue reading Elegant Stop Motion and a Presidential Pep Talk
I really like the musical “My Fair Lady.” I watched it as a kid and loved the songs, the British-ness of it all and…oh…the dresses! As an adult I watched it again, but very quickly decided that I hated the ending. Eliza isn’t supposed to end up with the professor! He’s grumpy and awful. She… Continue reading My Fair Lady – My Own Fair Ending
I really like this song. That is all. So…what are you doing New Year’s Eve?
Hello Friends, Last week kind of got away from me. Between a Chicago visit and the beginnings of a cold, posting here fell to the wayside. But…it’s ok because the Friday Flick I had planned for last week works perfect for today. I know most of the Christmas videos I have had up in the past month… Continue reading The Cutest Christmas Story
Today’s video encompasses so many lovely things…A Christmas tale…David Tennant and his Scottish accent…A mischievous penguin…A bedtime story…David Tennant. (Yes I know I got that last one twice, but I’m pretty sure I could have mentioned him a third time and still be within the legal limit.) Without further ado…one more reason I wish I lived in the… Continue reading A Christmas Story (a.k.a. One Reason to Move to the U.K.)
This is it folks…one more movie in my Christmas Cinema Celebration. And it is the best Christmas movie EVER…in my humble opinion. Bing Crosby…Danny Kaye…Singing…Dancing…Christmas! It is not too good to be true…it’s “White Christmas.” First, I really like the promotion of VistaVision in this trailer. Don’t know why exactly…it is just great. Second, if… Continue reading Christmas Movie Celebration – Singing, Dancing, Christmas!
So, I know I have already posted a Christmas video from “Elf” in the last month (in case you missed it check it out here), but I just couldn’t leave it out this week. This movie makes me laugh out loud everytime I watch it. And it is SO quotable! Do you have a favorite… Continue reading Christmas Movie Celebration – Singing Loud For All To Hear
Strictly speaking…today’s movie isn’t a Christmas movie, but it ends at Christmastime and so I always think of it that way. Not to ruin the plot for anyone, but this is the movie “You’ve Got Mail” is based off of. It is delightful, plus it’s got Jimmy Stewart in it…which really can’t hurt. If you… Continue reading Christmas Movie Celebration – A Shop and Two Pen Pals
Alrighty folks…today starts the beginning of a wonderful (if I do say so myself) week of celebrating my favorite Christmas movies. To start us off…The Muppet Christmas Carol. This movie is a standard in my house at Christmas time. We always have it on at some point as we decorate the house. I think my… Continue reading Christmas Movie Celebration – The Muppet Tradition
