My Obsession With Fun

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

In keeping with my obsession that I have with the band, “Our Name is Fun”, I’m posting another video of theirs.  They have some sort of siren song hex on me or something.  I MUST  listen to their songs over and over and over and over.  Okay, I admit that maybe I may need some medication for my OCD  (should be spelled “CDO”).

Here’s what they just did.  Fun is in London right now and they released their new album, “Some Nights”.  They wanted input from the public about the fun things that peeps like to do in life.  Then the group Fun got a gigantic FUN logo that looks like it was make of foam or something. Fun went about town and solicited sticky notes from people  telling what  fun things they like to do in life.

Sounds plausible to me.  We work too hard and don’t take enough time off (especially Americans!).  Everyone is so busy with their tight schedule that people hardly get time for themselves.  One of the comments on YouTube was, “Nate Ruess’ hair is fun.”  It IS.  It’s crazy madcap fun.

I think that fun is BEST when it’s shared with others. Sure, it’s great to be alone sometimes … but, not lonely. If you were to stop  and think about all  the fun times you’ve had in life, I’m pretty sure most – if not all of them – would have been around friends, family, or other people you know well and have fun with.  Get out and have fun.  Do stuff.

I am not getting paid to post this or anything.  I just really like the band.  I do make money on some items that might appear on my website.

What is your idea of fun? If given a choice to skip work for a day, how would you spend the entire day? Hiking, camping, or backpacking? Just one day of spontaneity!



Simon’s Cat Knocks Stuff Down

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Simon captures cat behaviour really well. Everyone that owns a cat will recognize the things cats do in his drawings. In this video, Simon’s cat knocks stuff down & then he “bats” what looks like a bunny figurine a few times until he pushes it off the mantelpiece. I’m not currently a cat owner because my allergies are so bad – but, it always makes me smile when I see what that damn cat of Simon’s is up to. He seems surprised that things go flying to the ground as he rubs up against them.

I love the elegant way that cats jump off of things: they put their front paws against a flat surface & then jump. This must act a stabilizer for when they land. I’ll have to copy this ingenious method next time I jump off the mantel.

The Vow

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

My last post was how stupid Valentine’s Day is. And, it is. This trailer for the the movie, The Vow, looks really good. It happens to be debuting on Valentine’s Day – so, I’ll post it to be nice. My ex-husband is always telling me to be nice. The movie looks like it might be good. I’ll probably cry. It has Rachel McAdams in it from The Notebook, which I thought was really sappy. And lame. Hopefully, this is better than The Notebook.

In The Vow, a married couple has a car accident and his wife, Paige loses her memory. She doesn’t recognize her husband or anything about their love. So, he has to try to win back her heart again. She’s really resistant to his love. He keeps trying. Let’s see if The Vow is a movie that I like. I wonder if she ever really loved him?

FUN: We Are Young

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Video from commercial on Super Bowl 2012 from FUN: We Are Young – featuring Janelle Monae.

Can’t get this flippen song out of my head – so< I thought I'd post it to bug all of you too. Okaay - I admit. I love this song. Considering switching from my Ford to a Chevy now. Oh well .... Lyrics to "We Are Young by Fun featuring Janelle Monae: Give me a second - I I need to get my story straight My friends are in the bathroom Getting higher than the Empire State. My lover - she's awaiting for me across the bar My seat's been taken by some 'sunglasses' Asking 'bout a scar. And, I know I gave it to you months ago. I know you're trying to forget. But, between the drinks & subtle things And the holes in my apologies - ya know I'm trying hard to take it back. So, if by the time the bar closes and You feel like falling down I'll carry you home - Tonight. Tonight, we are young. So let's set the world on fire. We can burn brighter than the sun. Tonight - we are young. So, let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun. Tonight, we are young. We can set the world on fire. Tonight we are young. So, let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun. And I know that I'm not all that you got. Like I said - I thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart. But our friends are back So, let's raise a glass. Cause I want someone to carry me home. Tonight we are young. So, let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun. Tonight we are young. So, let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun. Can we have tonight? Can we have tonight? Carry me home tonight. Carry me home tonight. Tonight we are young. So, let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun. So,if by the time the bar closes And you feel like falling down - I'll carry you home tonight.

Skydiver Paul Steiner Climbs From Glider to Glider

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Unbelievable stunt with two gliders and a skydiver. Skydiver Paul Steiner climbs from one glider to another and touches the rudder during the flight. You should watch this a couple of times it’s so amazing. It’s balls & NOT trick photography.
