B is for Beat Around the Bush ~ 4/3/23

BEAT Around THE BUSH

To talk about unimportant things because you’re avoiding a particular topic.

I have perfected this act of beating around the bush which is also a little passive aggressive if I do tell on myself. I’m the proverbial people pleaser joker who cannot stand conflict. What better way to avoid conflict than to beat around the bush? Am I right?

Uh no!

I’ll tell ya what! A better way is to face that sH!t head on people!!

Our song choice today is not about beating around the bush but instead a song by Kate Bush that had its’ resurgence thanks to the Stranger Things Netflix series. HERE is the wiki with details about the song. And you’re welcome. Ha-ha.

As always, more to come.

Flashback Friday ~ 3/31/23

In looking for a Flashback Friday, I went to 3/31/17. This was about nine months into my first year as a blogger. Then I looked at 3/31/18 & realized I was much more prolific back then. I wrote three different posts on 3/31/17 with 89 posts total for March of 2018.

What the what?!?!?

Now I’ve calmed down to write one or two posts everyday with this being #1691 in a row. Yeah buddy! Here’s a little secret, I think my writing skillz have become flat. Not sure exactly what I mean by that but I was much more cheeky then & I hurled profanity, keeping it real. I was Hemingway bleeding on a page y’all. My angst, had its own angst.

These days I write as if I’m scared. Okay, I was scared. FB banned my blog (they let me back in but I’m not biting). A few DMs came my way that put me on pause. Life kept happening but I posted my views in a more subtle way. Don’t laugh, I have been reigning it in these days. Feels less genuine somehow. I’d like to get an edge back.

Okay, now for the main event. Five years ago was a Saturday. This was my #SoCS post. Hope you enjoy the recycle. The video may not work but the movie is out there. Pulp Fiction finest.

As always, more to come.

Friday Tunes ~ 7/8/22

What does a Bambi feature image have to do with Friday Tunes? Nothing. The answer is nothing. LOL. I just happen to love this gif or meme or whatever the proper term for the Grrrr. I have discovered Instagram because of Ms. Marvel and the scene that made me snort laugh. It’s not SnapChat auntie, it’s Insta! I watched so many videos … reels I think they’re called & the musical accompaniments are really clever. So finally that is why this post is called Friday tunes. Enjoy !!

As always more to come.

#KCHonors

Catching up on DVR’ed shows. The Kennedy Center Honors was on Sunday but Lulu’s birthday took precedence. I must say this Class of 2019 is spectacular!!

  1. Linda Ronstadt whose diversity and range are incredible.
  2. Sally Field – Giget and the Flying Nun does good.
  3. Sesame Street – in a word genius! Sing! Sing a Song!
  4. Michael Tilson Thomas or MTT – never knew his name but I’ve always known his music. We share a birthday which means I’m almost famous. Lol.
  5. Last but certainly not least, Earth, Wind, and Fire. Jamming out back in the day. Many a flashlight skate included their music fueling the movement. Always a favorite even to this day!

This event is an annual treat. To see other celebrities pay homage is icing on the cake. Sweet dreaming tonight.

She is messy, but she’s kind

Ok somehow when I looked at this on my phone, I saw a blank title.  I added one and updated deleting everything in error.  Oops and boo!!  Take two.

I saw the musical Waitress yesterday.  Loved everything about it.  I saw the movie when it came out.  I remembered Jenna saying the recipes in her head and naming all the pies funny names.  Such a central character; I have a hard time placing anyone other than Keri Russell as Jenna. Though the actress from last night was excellent.  The whole cast was top notch.  Sara Bareilles’ music is fantastic!!!  And the baby was named Lulu.  BONUS!!! <3. As I was looking for a video of my favorite song from the show, I found this gem.  If Adrian is the future of Broadway, we’re in great hands!!  Watch it without happy tears.  I double dog dare you.

Don’t miss the return of SYTYCD, JUN 12 on FOX! 8/7C

I live and breathe acronyms which is why the title of this post has SYTYCD vs. So You Think You Can Dance.  “Yeah Baby” said in my 1990s Michael Myers as Austin Powers voice over voice. Hehe.  I am giddy!!!!!!!

I LOVE this show!  LOVE<3 LOVE<3 LOVE!

How many LOVEs are too many LOVEs for a post.  Answer: You can never have too much LOVE!

I have no idea when the show started or how I found out about it.  Google to the rescue.  The show premiered July 20, 2005.  Twelve fantastic years and I’ve been hooked since day one.

Even as the show morphed themes:  Allstars, new dance genres – Bollywood and Krump et. al, and a kids version … No matter what change may come, I hung on.  My M.O. aka modus operandi is to tape the shows.  Showing my age, ahem, 29 and holding :).  I mean that I record the shows.  My DVR over runneth.  Eventually Big B gets mad at me for taking up real estate and I delete but not until I have had my fill and watched the recordings many many many many times.

How many, MANYs are too many MANYs for a post?  Answer: NONE

Check out this clip that makes me SMILE to this day!!  Watch and see for yourself.   I double dog dare you NOT to smile.  I triple dog dare you NOT to bust your own move.

J4 with Cyrus and Fik Shun

And I will take stock in Kleenex because you better bet that there will some routines that bring on the HAPPY tears.  A picture is word a thousand words.  Dance is a picture telling a story without the benefit of words.  I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

As always, more to come.
