So how exciting was your high school graduation?
Mine was so dull my parents left early! My graduating class was HUGE, 640 kids, so I really didn't blame Mom and Dad for hitting the road after they got through the D's in the alphabet.
And we didn't do anything nearly as cool as the grads from Wausau East High School a week or so ago.
My fave part of this video? The student at the end of one row who refuses to participate.
I'm not a huge snow fan, but I know there are a lot of you crazies out there. None as crazy though as college students. Do you remember back in 2009 when UW Madison students created a giant snowball?
I was actually looking for a different video when I found this one (the one where college students built a bunch of snowmen in the road a year or so ago.) But I do find the idea of a giant snowball amusing.
I'm sure it started small...and (you've got it) it snowballed.
I love one of the comments on youtube..."I want to go to this fun school."
On Thanksgiving, for the first time ever, I had mashed potatoes with gravy.
"What? You're Irish and don't like potatoes? I wish I had a nickel for every time some one said that. I hated potatoes as a kid and over the last ten or 15 years I've tried new kinds and several years ago decided I liked mashed potatoes..the really buttery garlicky kind, but was still afraid to have them topped with gravy.
Then on Thanksgiving Mike and I went out for turkey dinner and they brought me the potatoes that way, and I had no choice but to try them. And Sam-I-Am, I liked them.
So what does that have to do with Paul McCartney? Not much. But I thought you might like this video of Paul teaching you how to make mashed potatoes. Yes, it's random. And I don't know why he made this video. But it's ADORABLE. And just in time for the holidays!
People have lots of wedding traditions; the garter toss, the toasts at the reception, the first dance, but this family took it to extreme with an amazing surprise for the bride. Bet you wish you were this bride!
If you haven't seen the massively-viral "Teach Me How to Bucky" parody music video...then our parody of the parody won't make any sense to you at all.
Either way, here's Jonathan Suttin + Kitty Dunn with "Teach Me How to Kitty." Watch, learn and enjoy kiddies.
This isn't your typical Fresh New Music blog post - but then again, this isn't your ordinary parody video.
Zooniversity is at it again - itâs #6 on YouTubeâs most watched music videos today! You may have heard their previously released Badger-centric tracks like âMy Biddyâ and âCoastie Song (Whatâs A Coastie?)â
Who is Zooniversity, you ask? After doing some investigation, we found a Twitter feed for the students behind this very creative + surprisingly well edited video. MCs Quincy Kwalae and Beef borrowed the beat from Cali Swag Districtâs âTeach Me How To Dougieâ and turned its minimalist stomp into âTeach Me How To Bucky.âÂ The real treat is the cameos including Chancellor Biddy Martin, marching band director Mike Leckrone, orange piccolo guy, the statue from the Camp Randall Memorial Arch, and that brown party house outside of gate nine. Itâs pure gold. Or should I sayâ¦red + white.
My good friend Charlie sent this to me and I just had to share it with you.
For those who don't remember, Laurel and Hardy were the most popular comedy team in the Golden Age of American movies. They were also a great joke in Blazing Saddles where the Mayor offers " a laurel and a hardy handshake..." to the new Sherriff.
But I digress. Anyway... here's a very cool video.
The World Dairy Expo is in Madison this week..with farmers from all over the world coming here to learn all about new farming technology and genetics.
Now those of you who know me might realize that even though I grew up in a fairly small city in Wisconsin, I am not a farm girl in any way shape or form.
That was proven big time last year when Jonathan and I visited the World Dairy Expo, and Jimmy Voegeli, dairy farmer by day, rock star by night, tried to teach us a few things about farm livin'.
Find out more about Jimmy Voegeli's band The Jimmys here.
"A day at the zoo" can be used as a phrase to describe an easy-going, fun day. But a day at the zoo is not always a day at the zoo...when everything goes wrong for a cute little kid.
Geoffrey was upset little girls seemed to control the day's agenda. He did NOT want to go see the "gentle animals."
Watch and enjoy. And just be glad video cameras weren't around when I was a kid. My rants were a bit more violent.
I am addicted to Pharrell Williams' song "Happy," and I didn't think I could like it any more than I already did.
Until I saw this video. Yeah, it's pretty shallow humor, but it put a smile on my face! Andthat's not something...
Critics have been saying some good things about the new biographical Jimi Hendrix movie that's debuting at SXSW later this month.
For one thing, Jimi: All Is By My Side comes from film-maker John Ridley, who wrote the screenplay for the much...
"Move it in, move it out, move it in roundabout, Disco Lady!"
Those lyrics were just a little too suggestive to Kitty back in 1976 when this song was a hit. But lots of folks appeared to be in a disco mood this morning when we played that number one...
I made jambalaya for supper last night--today I think I'll celebrate Mardi Gras with my favorite Louisiana export, Sonny Landreth!
I've had a chance to see Sonny around a dozen times, and he never fails to impress. When he opened Eric...
To get through the Monday Blues, you're going to need something extraordinary (what makes the difference is that little extra), and here it is: Neon Trees' latest Sleeping With a Friend (slightly off-putting title insanely awesome jam!)
You may have driven by that seemingly rundown brick building on East Washington Avenue hundreds of times, but you probably never got to go behind the scenes at the iconic recording studio that brought us so much great music in the 1990s.
What are you doing Sunday March 9th? Why not spend the afternoon supporting a great cause, and enjoying some fantastic music?
It's a benefit for the family of a young Madison girl, Anna Mischnick, who is battling brain cancer.
The event goes...
