King the Kid

I had a great “Wrecking Ball” series of posts planned and even begun… but then I dropped the ball. I did the first post, Four Best Miley Cyrus “Wrecking Ball” Parodies.

The next post I was going to do was a few of the covers of the song that are on Youtube. I never got to that one, but you should really go check them out. There are some very talented people on Youtube that might just blow you away.

The third post in the series, though, I could not skip. This is a really great boy band called, King the Kid. I just learned of them in my hunt for all of these videos. The totally awesome thing that they’ve done is a parody and a cover. And not only that, they are really good!

So check them out, King the Kid performing “Wrecking Ball”:

Talented musicians, beautiful sounds, and quite funny, to boot! What’s not to love?

Stay groovy,

Wonder what he’s dreaming…

I set the intention to blog once a day for the month of November, kind of in conjunction with NaNoWriMo, but for bloggers. And I also plan to spread it out among my blogs. One day here, one day there, etc….

Clearly, though, I’ve put this off until the last minute today. And I’m also nursing a rockin’ migraine, so I’m not all that pumped up about it. So I went digging through my drafts to see if there was something there I could work with. What I found is a little kooky. And I’ve decided to leave it in its “drafts” form – or I’m forced as I’ve left it in there so long, there’s no way I could fill it out properly. But I like it, so it’s getting published.

Okay, this is funny – and definitely wandering. At some point, I jotted down a bunch of notes from my dreams the night before, so that I could make a post out of them. I know the time frame is in the last 2 1/2 years, as I talk about my niece, Lily – and she is 2 1/2 years old. Other than that, I can’t remember when I wrote it. I remember having dreamed the part about Cenk. Well, I don’t remember all those goofy details, but…

Blue Sun Tapestry

I have had quite a few “favorite” tapestries over the years at SoulFlower – and funny enough, that is what has caused me to so far only buy one. What huh? I like so many of them that I can’t decide which one I want to buy! So I buy t-shirts and wait until next time! LOL!

And in my mind, they were wall tapestries – just for the wall. And that fact helped slow down my buying, too. I don’t think the family would go for my hanging tapestries up all over the house! But then…. but then, one of the Karma Krewe blogged about all of the different things that she does with tapestries and I was sunk, just sunk. She uses them for curtains, sheets, and just all kinds of things. And it was as if I’d been given permission to do with my tapestry as I pleased. Silly, I know, but sometimes my brain is weird like that.

I have since used my blue sun tapestry for curtains (first one window and then another) and right now it is my favorite sheet. I absolutely love it!

And just who wouldn’t love this one? It’s called Magic Carpet Tapestry and I’m sure that anyone who watched Aladdin obsessively with their kids when it came out on VHS would love it, too! ;)

Magic Carpet Ride Tapestry

And here is a gallery more of tapestries. I’m sure if I lived alone, they would be all over my house!

I’m not feeling so hot again, so I think I’m gonna go get cozy under my blue sun and read for a while.

Stay groovy,

How on earth can you look DIRECTLY in someone’s face – right UP CLOSE …and mistake them for your brother? Well, I had just that experience last year. And it still creeps me out.

And the context of the photo is so fitting for my brother, too. He is a veterinarian. He loves pets and always has a cat or a dog or a horse or a goat hanging around him somewhere. But alas, he is not my flesh and blood. He is a right-handed sysadmin/IT engineer named Josh. Not a left-handed veterinarian. Weird. So weird.

He posted the pic in 2011, he and I talked about the pic a year ago, and I have to say that I’m still not convinced this is not, in fact, my brother pulling a mondo prank on me. ;)

I found the picture post on a FB humor page and tracked it down to the original that Josh had posted on reddit here: This is how I was woken up this morning He says that after he posted it on Reddit, the picture pretty much had a life of its own. I actually first found it on a Facebook humor page, then tracked it to a Tumblr, and then to his original posting. And people even ‘remade’ his picture in other styles: an Etch-a-Sketch, a watercolor, and a video game photo mosaic.

Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball

Miley Cyrus has been quite the topic lately, wouldn’t you say? And while a “Top 10″ post would be desirable, I have to say that so many of the parody videos for this song just suck.

Of course, this video lends itself to quite a lot of suckage, naturally. It’s just weird. When I watch the video with filters on my eyes, I actually like the song and the passion and the pain in it. Just have to use a visual sifter to cancel out the weird.

But anyway, I picked my four of my favorite parodies to share with you.
