Star Wars Medley A Cappella

Star Wars Acapella

Been a while since I’ve done one of these posts but I went down a YouTube spiral this morning and ran across this video once again. In it, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots join the cast of Star Wars The Force Awakens for an a cappella tribute to Star Wars. It’s glorious.

Jimmy Fallon Is Knocking It Out Of The Park

Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel & The Roots

This post started out as a Current Favs On YouTube post but I quickly realized that there was a common bond between all 3 of these videos: Jimmy Fallon.  In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who Jimmy Fallon is he’s the 39 year old genius that recently took over hosting the Tonight Show.  Before taking the reigns from Jay Leno, Fallon was on Saturday Night Live and hosted his own … Continue reading

Powered On (2012) – Sarah Churman Talks Sounds Vs. Noise

Powered On (2012)

I first learned of Sarah Churman when I watched a YouTube video of her hearing for the first time.  Sarah was born with a condition where the hair in her inner ear doesn’t form.  This hair (I’ve come to find out) is what transmits the sound which allows us to hear.  Without it, Sarah was essentially deaf. Powered On is the amazing, true story of Sarah’s transformation from a life of silence into a new … Continue reading

Lyrics That Touch – Firework By Katy Perry

Firework - Katie Perry

If you’re like me you heard this song WAY too often over the 4th of July weekend this past year.  For me it started off as a catchy tune that I got sick of.  I had on the iPod shuffle this morning and it came on.  I don’t know that I’ve ever really listened to the lyrics before but if you really look at what Ms. Perry is singing about it’s a pretty damn moving … Continue reading

Charlie Sheen Winning

YouTube is an amazing website.  As I’m not taking today off to partake in St. Patrick’s Day events like the rest of Cleveland, I was just going through a couple of my favorites and thought I’d share them.  Enjoy! I know I’m late to the Charlie Sheen game but this is nothing short of EPIC WINNING.   In all honesty, the guys that put this together are SUPER talented. One of the most inspirational speeches ever … Continue reading

“Date Night” – Maybe We Weren’t Paying Attention

Date Night (2010)

I’ve said it on numerous occasions, but it’s not often that the wife and I find a movie that we’re both interested in seeing.  The last one that we agreed looked good was The Break-Up which didn’t turn out too great.  But I digress. We were interested in Date Night cause we like both of the movie’s stars (Steve Carell of The Office fame and Tina Fey from Saturday Night Live).  Also, the first trailer … Continue reading

An Amazing Story – ‘The Last Lecture’

The Last Lecture

If you haven’t yet, take the time to watch something called The Last Lecture.  It can be found all over Google, YouTube and of course at thelastlecture.com The Last Lecture for those living under a rock was given by an incredibly brave man by the name of Randy Pausch.  Randy had pancreatic cancer and had only months to live.  Carnegie Melon has a longstanding tradition of allowing its professors to give a “last lecture”.  It’s … Continue reading
