Muppet Monday: Forget You

It’s a little late but better late than never!  Over the weekend it was really chilly here in the area.  When we have temperatures like that, it makes me just want to stay inside and sit by the fire.  So I did put the fireplace on and watched “The Muppets” from On Demand.  This is my favorite clip from that movie….Camilla and her chickens singing Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You”.  I think I actually like her version better!

Muppet Monday: Baby It’s Cold Outside!

When I woke up this morning I was shocked at how cold it was outside.  Apparently we broke an all time record here in the Dallas Ft. Worth area when the temperature hit 39 degrees.  Last time it was that cold this early in the year was in the 1920’s.  To commemorate this, enjoy this little ditty sung by Miss Piggy while she shares the steam room with Russian Ballet dancer Rudolf Nuriev:

 

Just Because I Can

This is what you get when I want to be lazy and I don’t have anything interesting to say….no cool dream last night, no crazy kid story and nothing is pissing me off….so this is what you get: a music video.

But not just any music video…a music video by Fun..  The radio played the crap out of their song “We Are Young” and I really liked it…I thought it was very reminiscent of Queen. This new song I only heard once and I was instantly in love.  I have now bought the whole album on my iTunes.  Who are these guys?  They are f*cking awesome and where have they been hiding?  Their music makes me want to go work out (and that is a miraculous feat in itself)…just because it’s such perfect music to work out to. Either work out or do some Irish dancing…one or the other. How can you not love songs with bagpipes?

Muppet Monday on Thursday

Good Morning!  Because of the Labor Day holiday this week I didn’t post a Muppet Monday!

So I thought I would start today off with a little Muppet & Jimmy Buffet (hey that rhymes) work of awesomeness.

When my kids were young, we watched Elmopalooza so often that the DVD is worn out now and will hardly play.  I’m not ashamed to say I LOVE Elmopalooza and I know the words to this and almost every song on there….even now, several years later.  This makes me miss having little, little ones!
Enjoy!

Lazy Friday Post

I really have no creativity in my brain today to think of something to blog about on this lazy Friday.  So,  I thought I would just post one of my favorite musician’s beautiful songs.  Here is Jason Mraz with “I Won’t Give Up”.  Listen to the lyrics, they are powerful and the video is amazing.

Even though I have had a guitar in my house my entire life, I’m first and foremost a pianist.  I haven’t ever had the discipline to teach myself more than a few basic guitar chords but I’ve always been envious of anyone who can just pick one up and play.  So, for the past week or two I have been faithfully practicing every day and now my fingers have blisters!  Its extremely gratifying and I will be very pleased with myself when I can play a handful of Jason’s songs.  This of course is one of them!
