Back by popular demand!

Well really Laurie requested a blog so here's a blog for Laurie! I've been off in a totally different world the past few days and haven't been caught up with anything funny that's going on in pop-culture. Bryan and I went to a 3-day chiropractic seminar...nothing funny there. Then I taught kindergarten at church yesterday...nothing really funny there either. So I'm reverting to a youtube video I loved over 3 years ago. My senior year of college I had a class that spent an entire semester developing a marketing plan for First Financial Bank to reach out to more hispanic people. This project was really time consuming and we spent many many late nights up in the Journalism department working on our plan and presentation. We were also working on our Aisha dance. We got addicted to watching this video and then imitating the dance at the end. I highly recommend that you do the same! So watch this and then try and do the moves yourself...if you have kids get them involved too...I'd love to see some little Aisha dancers out there!

Gays:1, Kylea:0

Don't you just love a Sunday afternoon? You get home from church and slip on your pajamas, draw the shades, crank up the AC, turn on good movie and fall fast asleep before the opening credits have completed. This was my plan today. Bryan and I went to early service at church after a late night at the Ranger Game. I was exhausted by the time I got home and finished eating my La Madeline takeout. I started to nap only to have it interrupted by the sounds of Cher, horns honking, engines revving and loud yelling. I decided this could make a good blog. What is this you ask? It's the annual Gay Parade that goes on either side of the building we live in. So today I came out of the closet...with my video camera so I could share some of the gay parade with my blogging friends.

Drop it like it's hot!

This is what I call customer service... It gets funnier towards the end. This is a salesman at Best Buy with 3 girls shopping for a car stereo.

Smooth Criminal

I apologize dear readers if this is your Poppy, dad, uncle, brother, Lamaze coach, etc.



This is the video of a man keying the Hummer that the son of one of our clients drives. The kid's Hummer had been keyed several times while being parked at Carroll High School so they installed surveillance cameras to catch whoever was doing it on video. I'm sure they were surprised to find that an old man not some punk kid was the one keying the car. I'm curious to see how this one turns out! What exactly was the motive? I have my theories...

Politics

Everyone knows this is an election year. I admit that I can really get into politics. I definitely have my opinions on how I think things should be and what I'm looking for in a President or Vice President. While I think everyone should stand for what they believe in, I think we should keep in mind that we still have to live with each other when this election is over. So to keep my political blog light I've added a clip that I think is hilarious. McCain ran an ad saying Obama is a celebrity but he's not ready to lead. He uses images of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears in the ad. Paris released a response "ad" and I have to admit it's funny. So enjoy a little Paris Hilton...and don't worry she's mostly clothed in this internet video.

Goodbye Coney Island?



I read online that they are closing the Astroland Amusement Park at Coney Island for good. I had the opportunity to visit Coney Island this summer with Jaime and Lara. We first tried to attend a taping of Regis and Kelly only to discover that they were not taping that day. With the whole day in NYC ahead of us I had the bright idea to go check out Coney Island. I was expecting a major freak show with people "barking" at us and that we'd take a few rides on some really old attractions, get some pictures with the bearded lady, and purchase some souvenir postcards . I overlooked the fact that it was 9:30am on a Monday. Evidently the party doesn't (or I guess I should say "didn't") get started until noon. So we dipped our toes in the Atlantic, ate a hot dog brunch, attempted a "break-in", and walked down a vacant boardwalk. If they demolish it all I guess I'll be able to tell my kids I saw it before it was gone.

Who is Russell Brand?

I'm trying to watch the MTV VMAs..."trying" being the key word here. So far I am not impressed. If anyone knows who Russell Brand is please let me know. His opening is a bunch of liberal "Brits hate Americans/Bush" garbage. Here are some of my key recap points/questions:
1. When is Katy Perry's 15 minutes up? I can't believe Miley arrived with her...come on now Cyrus...get it together!
2. They spread rumors all week about Britney "opening" the VMA awards and all she did was a really lame skit with that little Seth Rogan look alike Jonah somebody that was worse acting than her days on the Mickey Mouse club and then she said 2 sentences into the microphone.



3. Bryan just said, "Who's that?" I said, "Demi Moore". He obviously doesn't share my tabloid news obsession.
4. Why are the Jonas Brothers performing in the back lot? I'm praying that they are avoiding all the trash within the walls of the studio. It looks like they're sitting on the stoop from Sesame Street. This is maybe not the coolest way to break into the MTV scene...I'm just saying.
5. Pull up your pants Lil Wayne.
6. I'm impressed with Jordin Sparks standing up for the "promise ring wearers"! Maybe there's hope for the youth of America after all.

7. And finally I noticed that evidently the Pee Wee Herman suit is back in style. Did it ever leave really? Here are a few photos of stars sporting the tight gray suit:

Super Fan

I have a secret addiction to Miley Cyrus. Yes I am 25 years old and most likely too old to be in Miley's target demographic, but I absolutely love her new CD "Breakout" and I drive Bryan crazy staying up late watching her YouTube channel "MileyMandy" where her and her best friend Mandy make "The Miley and Mandy Show". I was recently ridiculed by my friends for admitting that I dreamed it was me instead of Mandy and it was our YouTube show..."The Miley and Kylea Show". I think it has a nice ring to it! So yes...I am a dork. I can at least relate well to Camille now. So in Miley's honor I have embedded my favorite Miley and Mandy show episode. (Every time I hear this song come on the radio I really say "I'm Miley Cyrus only got 4 minutes".) I have also included footage of her singing my favorite song from her new CD. Maybe I can recruit some more Miley fans (as if she needs more fans).
