Do you know how miserable it is to pull together Thanksgiving dinner when you've been sick for a week and just found out you have an ear infection? I need to go grocery shopping and start cooking but all I want to do is sleep and eat soup. I need to make a pumpkin pie but instead here's Cake By the Ocean, from DNCE, which I think looks like "dunce" but they probably mean "dance" and, hey, it's Joe Jonas!
I don't know what happened to the music selection at Planet Fitness. It used to be mainstream pop but the past couple months it's been nothing but D-list EDM videos, and they are very cheesy, but this one at least is a little fun.
As I was making coffee this morning and thinking about what passes for news, this song popped into my head. Please to enjoy:
Every time I saw this ad during the World Series it made me smile. If you know me at all, you know I'm a baseball fanatic, and I hate when the season ends.
If you think you're too old to learn anything from Sesame Street, think again, friend! A couple of friends had posted this video on Facebook last week, and I knew it had to be this week's Tunes for Tuesday song. This video really does a great job of explaining self regulation, self control and even executive function.
A lot of times, I get my Tunes for Tuesday picks from the overhead music at the gym, but lately the playlist has been D-list dance music (what's up with that, Planet Fitness?). So I'm stepping into the Wayback Machine and pulling out the first hit single from one of my favorite bands of my youth, Simply Red.
I'm not one for nostalgia and oldies radio but I make an exception for R&B. It's all I listened to as a kid, and every Friday, after ballet class at Dee Dee's Dance Studio, I'd by a new 45 (that's a vinyl single, kids). This was one of them. Fun fact: I know every single word and "hey! hey! hey!" in this song. I randomly started singing it this morning while cleaning the kitchen and thought you should join in, too.
Saw this video at the gym yesterday. The song itself is your typical techno dance stuff but the video makes me want to bust out the FXP Hula Hoop I was sent a few months ago. It's a portable weighted Hula Hoop that comes with a carrying bag, a non-slip mini mat for setting it on its side for standing moves and a DVD. When I was a kid I had an awesome orange Hula Hoop with "shakey-shakey" noisemakers in it, and I haven't hooped since. Maybe I'll give it a go. I'm kind of heartened that the workout poster shows a lot more moves than the around-the-waist, which I can't seem to master.
I find a lot of cool songs through TV commercials and this song is no different. What's interesting about this one is that it was actually written as a commercial tie-in for Jeep. But this video! Super inspiring.
