I Love College

28 02 2009

A selection of videos to bring a smile to your face.

1. An oldie but goodie:  Weezer + Muppets – Keep Fishin’

2. I haven’t seen the movie and I’ve been told not to.  However, THIS video “Ten Chick Flick Cliches You Won’t Find in HJNTIY” is HILARIOUS. I luvs these boys.

3. So I heard this song while driving home today.   The song is so whatev and lame but weirdly growing me…  I guess it just brought me back.  I never thought I’d miss college, but now 2 years out, I guess I do.

If I could go back, I’d play more beer pong.





Best Job in the World

27 02 2009

One of my friends is in the running for the famous Best Job in the World and put the best interview video ever up.  Check it out below.  Queensland Tourism is currently working on the shortlisting of candidates.  You can still rate the video on the website here. Cross your fingers please!  Shawn is one of the coolest, most amazing people I know and totally deserves it.

His blog Digitizing Life talks all about his recent months in London and now being back Stateside.  Check it out.

How to tell if you’re drinking too much diet coke again:
Still up reading blogs at 4am?  Then yes. You need to cut back.

Don’t Stop Me Now

4 12 2008

EPIC.  Wedding Style.

My older sister (who is wedding obsessed) emailed this video to me.  I can’t figure out how to add a video from vimeo.  Does anyone know how?  Click through. It’s worth it to watch kids to grownups go all out for Queen.  (Besides, can’t you see some of your crazy friends doing the same thing?)

A few thoughts:

  1. Do you think they got sick of hearing that song over & over in various locations
  2. Blonde at 2:50 – Yes please!




Weekend Update

24 11 2008

The wonderful weekend ended this morning when I awoke at 4am to fat, fluffy flakes falling outside my bedroom window.  It was heaven.  I hope the rest of you had enjoyable weekends whether you were out partying, protesting, or Twilighting!

I nervously agreed to join a co-worker out for drinks w/ her friends on Friday night.  I’m so pleased I went.  It one of the best nights this year!  We met up at a downtown hotel bar (where apparently ALL of the after work set go) at 6pm and drank straight to 11:30pm.  I met a bunch of awesome people including a hot engineer named Nate (who prefers to tell everyone he’s a magician bc it’s ‘more fun’) and an adorably geeky team leader named Tom.  After happy hour and $5 martinis ended, the birthday girl led us on to a nearby swanky sports bar.  Even though I admitted my horrible darts skills at the beginning of the night to Nate, he asked me to be his partner in a game of cricket.  We came in 2nd (boo. I like winning).  The bar crawl proceeded somewhere else (I’m 3 whiskeys in), and I left at 11:30.  There were hugs all around and promises to get together again soon. 

It was a fantastic night.  I left at just the right time – a.k.a. before I embarrassed myself with a faceplant or bartop passout.  No, I didn’t get Nate’s phone number or anyone else’s for that matter (too drunk to remember those important things).  However, I did drunk dial my younger sister and literally sang to her my woes of wearing heels and getting drunk for the first time in months.  She played the voicemail for my Mom and 14 yr-old brother.  I am now the lovable laughingstock of my family.  woot.

The rest of this wkend was spent studying for the upcoming GMAT.  I’m scared stiff that I won’t get into any MBA program anywhere.  Therefore, studying my ass off.  (It’s actually kinda fun. sad, I know)

I did take a break to watch the premier of YouTube Live – the first annual YouTube awards show.  It surpassed every other awards show I’ve ever seen.  Granted there were only like 2 awards given out.  The rest of the show was a showcase of some of the most original creativity I’ve ever seen.  There were the requisite ukulele players, Beardyman (beatbox phenom), Chad Vader, Planet B-Boy, and everyone’s favorite ‘My whole family thinks I’m gay” comedy singer Bo Burnham.

The Visionary Award went to Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan who has been a recent role model of mine.  She was celebrated for her use of online videos to educate the world about the Arab culture and unite the Arab community.  If you have a chance, learn more about Queen Rania at her website.  She is an incredible woman.

My sole reason for watching this live event was to see Jon Chu’s latest project:  The League of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD).  The video below of their performance is low quality and fails to capture the detail of perfection.  Click the link to find it on YouTube and select to watch in High Quality (HQ link is below the volume button).

Check out 3:10 for the beauty of the strange but awesome similarities in grace between the krump dancer and ballet dancers.

Lil Wayne + techno-pop = Why do I love this song so much???


Kevin Rudolf Ft. Lil Wayne – Let It Rock

Oh yea. It’s because of my unnatural love for Lil Wayne.
Fuck. Stuck in my head.
