I haven’t been feeling well, and the weather is so freaking cold that I am just miserable. I told ya. Seasonal affective disorder. What is going on with Jimmy Kimmel lately? He’s got some great videos up and I find myself clicking on them. Let’s go straight to…
What’s making me happy this week:
5. Benedict Cumberbatch recites R.Kelly’s lyrics to “Genius” – I think it’s the juxtaposition of a proper Brit against rap lyrics. Or R.Kelly’s. For god’s sake. Video: http://youtu.be/sNPp74zh8lM.
4. Dance battle between Kid and Pistons usher, Part II! I loved the first video. I love this video just as much!
The original movie makes me happy. You can’t beat it. It’s like trying to remake “Singin’ in the Rain.” (Who would be that stupid? Oh, wait… ) I’m happy I’m so damn old that I saw the Julie Andrews version first and know it as the original and THE BEST and ONLY version to watch for my future/hypothetical childrenz.
2. I was going through some photos and this made me happy. A few weeks ago, one of my best friends came to LA for a visit for her birthday. We took her to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour. It was my second time and it is no less magnificent. It’s so so powerful to see the shuttle in person. Can you imagine this shuttle being in space for so many trips?! It held human beings inside. In space. In case you were wondering, tickets are free (plus $2 service charge). Go now if you haven’t. That 6-minute video on how they moved the Shuttle from LAX to the California Science Center always makes me tear up. I’m such a sap these days.
As much as I like to give sh*t to The Wife for drooling over Queen Bey, she is damn amazing. We’ve seen her before and she puts on a stupendous show. STUPENDOUS! We had floor tickets, and I was able to get pretty close to the stage – about 25 deep! I love love love that she’s employed all women dancers (except for her Le Twins) and all woman band. I love it. +10000 points for that. It’s rare to see so many professional musicians who happen to be women on a balls-out international tour. For that, Beyonce has made me a fan for life.
Beyonce made my week. Hands down.
