Let's go. #motivation

Hello, treadmill song.  Or chair dance.  Make it happen.  /repeat
Let’s go!
Make no excuses now
I’m talking here and now
I’m talking here and now

Let’s go!
Your time is running out
I’m talking here and now
I’m talking here and now

It’s not about what you’ve done
It’s about what you doing
It’s all about where you going
No matter where you’ve been
Let’s go!

There ain’t no better time
I’m talking here and now
I’m talking here and now

Let’s go!
Right now is where you shine
I’m talking here and now
I’m talking here and now

It’s not about what you’ve done
It’s about what you doing
It’s all about where you going
No matter where you’ve been
Let’s go!

Book = Judged. Owned.

Obviously. Judging a person based on how they appear is WHAT PEOPLE DO. It's wrong, but it's WHAT they do. Try something new. Listening.


Today is your day.

You got what it takes you can win? 

You got what it takes you can win, 
Today is your day to begin. 
Don't give up here, don't you quit. 
The moment is now, this is it 
Know that you can then you will 
Get to the top of the hill 
Part of the fun is the climb 
You just gotta make up your mind 

That today is your day 
And nothing can stand in your way 
Today is your day 
Everything's goin' your way 
Today (you can do it) 
Today (c'mon c'mon) 
Today (c'mon do it) 
Today 

When somebody throws sticks and stones 
All they can break are your bones 
And life's gonna kick you around 
Then kick you again when you're down 

But today is your day 
And nothing can stand in your way 
Today is your day 

Everythings goin' your way 
Today (c'mon do it now) 
Today 
Today 
Today 

mmmm life's gonna kick you, its gonna kick you around, its gonna kick you down 

Brush yourself off no regrets 
This is as good as it gets 
Don't expect more or less 
Just go out and give it your best (give it your best) 

Today is your day 
And nothing can stand in your way 
Today is your day 
Everythings goin' your way 


No love.

I love Eminem.  

I often say this is treadmill music.  I am in complete exercise avoidance mode due to the state of my abdomen and upcoming surgery, but if I were going to walk on the treadmill today?  THIS WOULD BE THE SONG.  

I give you NO LOVE.  (Which is very naughty and not safe for work or wee ones.  Put this in your earbuds and walk off your angry.)  


The Virtual Choir. Uh, Wow?

"The Virtual Choir project began as a simple experiment in social media, but it seems to have grown into something much bigger than I ever dreamed possible. The latest video has gone ‘viral’, and the video looks like it’s well on its way to 700,000 views, maybe more."  

- Composer, Eric Whitacre

All of the singers uploaded videos of themselves singing different parts of the song to YouTube, following the lead of composer and conductor Eric Whitacre.

Whitney Houston back at it.

Even with a scratchy voice, she still kicks ass.  :)

As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
Im lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I've been through
Who on earth can I turn to

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

Yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

After losing my breath
There's no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door

And every road that I've taken
Lead to my regret
And I don't know if Im gonna make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

I look to you
I look to you

Yeah

And when all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

Oh yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you


(my levee's have broken, my walls have come)

Coming down on me

(crumbling down on me)

All the rain is falling

(the rain is falling, defeat is calling)

Set me free

(i need you to set me free)

Take me far away from the battle
I need you
Shine on me

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength has gone
in you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

and when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

yeah

I look to you
oooooooh
I look to you


NKOTB. :x

Half of my peer group saw NKOTB over the weekend in Boston.

I was like, "WTF?"   So, I am here listening to the new tunes.  Not. half. bad.  I was a Jordan Knight Fan in elementary school.  Mr. MM saw them in concert back then.  He just shakes his head at this video.  Heh heh.

You got The RIGHT STUFF, baby.


Vince Gill is not Eminem.

I'm not a music reviewer, so I don't really have much to say regarding concerts.  (I can, however tell you about protein bars and things like that.)  I just like music.  I am not very picky about genres.  And to tell you something very honestly?  I used to not even 'like' country music, (I know, right?)  Now, it's up there in my faves, right next to HARD CORE GANGSTA RAP.  /sarcasm

Although, I have to admit to you (and this is so not at all related, but I have had too much coffee) on the way to the concert last night, an old school Eminem song came on in the car.  Here I am, swapping from CAT-COUNTRY, 98.1, the big country station up here in Boston, to a Pop station, because on the Cape, nothing. comes. in, and I hear Emimem.  I KNEW EVERY FREAKING WORD OF THIS SONG

(Singing it right now.  Are you?)

Topic CHANGE!

Here's the thing - I do not like big crowds - unless everyone is having fun, but not the really pukey drunk kind of fun, I like the middle of the road type of fun.  I don't think I could handle an all-day Country-Fest, even if I thought I wanted to go.  I would probably die.  But, I could, take a couple hours of it, and two beers.  That's it.

Last night, even if I wanted to get up and BOOGIE to What The Cowgirls Do, I would have been slapped.  We were surrounded by half of the The Northeast's Nursing Home, and I Am Not Kidding About That, and I am trying hard not to joke.  I love me some white hairs, and I am fully aware of the fact that I am well on my own way to dementia, but... when did we get so, old?

*sigh*

I love Vince Gill.  I could listen to him tell stories, sing, and tell me how to cook mac and cheese.  It's all good.  And, even though I got in trouble (everybody did, including a woman near me that swore that she "WASN'T TAKING ANY PICTURES WITH A FLASH!!! while she held up a hugantic Nikon) for taking photos of him that I just posted to the interwebs, it was a fun take.  (And, he was in pain, the man is having surgery this week for a bum knee, he was struggling.)

PS.  The video will be up in a minute, it keeps timing out on YouTube.  Three times now.  Now, I am singing Eminem MASHED UP with VINCE GILL!  WOW.

Here is my photo video:


Chris Isaak at South Shore Music Circus

We saw Chris Isaak at The South Shore Music Circus last night.  What a fun dude he is. 

Watch my slideshow.

And, then, what I did this morning.

Hey who's that?  LOL?  After that, we got in line to get photos/sigs with Chris and there were No Photos!  Don't YOU TAKE NO PHOTOS. YOU THERE WITH THE CAMERA!  (They weren't talking to me.)  Heh.

Oh.

Opening for Chris Isaak and his band was James Hunter, who I did not get any photos of because he came on first and I was terrified of the camera security, but WOW, no, WOW. Try not to dance! No, I DARE YOU!


Taylor Hicks - American Idol

Okay - who's your pick for American Idol?  I'm going for an underdog right now.  Why?  Because he's old like me, and he's quirky.

Described as a soul singer, Taylor Hicks is known for setting "soul fires" from panhandle Florida honkey-tonks to the modern day chitlin-circuit of the old South. He's entertained with high profile artists such as James Brown, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Drive by Truckers, and Robert Randolph. Taylor is currently collaborating with contemporary blues legend Keb Mo.

UPDATE: Taylor Hicks is featured on the current season of American Idol. As of this writing, he is still part of the show.

UPDATE: (Feb. 8th) On Thursday, February 9th, Taylor Hicks' CD "Under the Radar" will be available at Laser's Edge Compact Discs in Homewood, Alabama. Orders can be taken via telephone or e-mail with a credit card. Purchases are limited to two copies. Contact Laser's Edge Compact Discs at 1-800-626-6495 or hicksin06@lasersedgecd.com for more information.

You can listen to three mp3's on that site as well.  Woo-hoo.  Though, note that his official website is "down" - maybe it's a American Idol rule.


Pink - Stupid Girl

Go to Pinks website.  Listen to this song.  I love it.  Love.  Hilarious.

Lyrics:

Stupid Girls

Stupid girl, stupid girls, stupid girls
Baby if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Go to Fred Segal, you'll find them there
Laughing loud so all the little people stare
Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne
(Drop a name)
What happened to the dreams of a girl president
She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
They travel in packs of two or three
With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees
Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
Oh where, oh where could they be?
Baby if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
(Break it down now)
Disease's growing, it's epidemic
I'm scared that there ain't a cure
The world believes it and I'm going crazy
I cannot take any more
I'm so glad that I'll never fit in
That will never be me
Outcasts and girls with ambition
That's what I wanna see
Disasters all around
World despaired
Their only concern
Will they **** up my hair
Baby if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
[Interlude]
Oh my god you guys, I totally had more that 300 calories
That was so not sexy, no
Good one, can I borrow that?
[Vomits]
I WILL BE SKINNY
(Do ya thing, do ya thing, do ya thing)
(I like this, like this, like this)
Pretty will you **** me girl, silly as a lucky girl
Pull my head and suck it girl, stupid girl!
Pretty would u **** me girl, silly as a lucky girl
Pull my head and suck it girl, stupid girl!
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, stupid girl!
Baby if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

(This has nothing to do with the song, it's just something that happened here yesterday. You can click on it.)
