Have you guys heard of Pogo? He splices old movies into some awfully dreamy-sounding mash-ups. This one is BRAND NEW! How awesome is it? (Ed. note: That guy above is not Pogo. I don’t know who the hell that is. Do you?)

power hour n. A drinking game (originating in Upstate NY/Capital District area) usually played, just prior to heading out to the bars & clubs (A.K.A. “pre-game drinking” or “pre-gaming”). Rules: Take one shot of beer every minute for an hour. To enhance your power hour, burn a 60 minute CD with 60 1 minute tracks, playing a different song for every shot you take. This game is used as an easy way to get a quick “buzz”… yet difficult (for some) due to the constant smaller quantities of alcohol, timing, and aeration of the beer.

Todd Rundgren is officially my favorite singer/ musician/songwriter/artist and I’ve liked him since my husband played me “A Wizard A True Star” on our first date when I was 19. He’s a musical genius who must have pissed somebody in the music industry off since he’s still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Van Halen is in there but Todd isn’t. Abba but not Todd Rundgren.
He’s released dozens of albums as a solo artist and with his band “Utopia” and produced ones for Meat Loaf (Bat Out of Hell), Patti Smith, and Janis Joplin. But he’s not in the Rock Hall of Fame. Continue reading
I was just telling Lauren how gross it was when women like me didn’t act their ages, and then Davy Jones made me eat my word. Last night at EPCOT’s America’s Garden Theater I was dancing, blowing kisses to him and singing like a drunken sailor to “Daydream Believer” and “I’m a Believer” along with a crowd of others like me reliving their long ago youth.
Davy was there as part of the Flower and Garden Festival’s Flower Power Concert Series and he reminded us that his TV show “The Monkees” was on 45 years ago! I was in grade school, just so you know, and Davy was my first crush. On the show he was the one that all the girls fell in love with (Mike was the smart one, Mickey the silly one, Peter the dumb one and Davy the cute one). I’ve read that only Mike actually knew how to play a musical instrument when the show started, and the others were just faking it but it was wildly popular.
He’ll be back tonight and tomorrow night ladies, so come out to EPCOT and “do the monkey” – the dance, not the Monkee.
Lauren always says that even though Mickey Mouse is so popular, kids today really don’t know him.
Disney is about a lot of things – but most importantly it’s about Mickey.
