I miss Patrick Swayze. He was one of my first celebrity crushes. I religiously watched the mini-series North & South and the sequel, North & South Part 2. There was never a sexier character than Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing. And who can forget Roadhouse?!? I now present to you a Christmas song dedicated to the Roadhouse era heart throb via the wacky gang on 'Mystery Science Theater 3000'. I warn you, it's very silly.
Yes, historically, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" has not been the first holiday song that jumps to your mind, but it has to be one of the most beautiful. And when Sam Smith sings it, with only a piano accompanying him, well, you know.
The Christmas tree is finally up at my parents' house. Finally? When most people put up their trees before Thanksgiving these days, my Mom still waits until after my sister's birthday (December 10) to put up our tree. But of course, it doesn't go up without some hemming and hawing.
I was introduced to John Prine through my cousin Alex. I know, I didn't hear a John Prine song until about fifteen years ago. I didn't know about his Western Kentucky and Muhlenberg County connections. I didn't know the song "Paradise", yet. I did know I was going to like Mr. Prine and his honest stories about life and what he knew.
For what it's worth, Johnny Manziel hasn't exactly made a splash in the NFL. That is until two weeks ago when Browns starter Brian Hoyer was pulled in the late stages of the Cleveland/Buffalo game in favor of the back-up, hyped up rookie. Although the Browns lost against Buffalo, Hoyer got the start again this past Sunday against the Colts and they lost by one. Now Coach Mike Pettine is finally turning the ball over to Johnny Football.
I can't stop smiling, Friday was a big day at my alma mater. A couple of months ago, my sister Hillary (she teaches at OCHS now) asked me for a list of songs from the '60s up until now. For the school's 50th anniversary, which is next year, the staff and the students were going to put together a lip dub video incorporating all the songs. Watch!
Notice I used the word "liked" and honestly, it's not the best movie I've ever seen. Still, I knew I had to watch it, so when I returned home this past Saturday night from our Ultimate Dirty Santa Party, I got settled in and I watched the Lifetime original movie, 'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever'. No, it wasn't bad, but Aubrey Plaza, er, the voice of Grumpy Cat, nailed it.
All right, so Chad shared with you his love of The Swiss Colony catalog; I love it too, are those little mice still the mascots? As of late, I've been receiving a bunch of catalogs that were meant for previous tenants, which is fine, but the other day, two of these babies showed up.
Confession time, I haven't missed one episode of AMC's The Walking Dead since day one. More importantly, I always make it point to almost always watch each new episode in real time, which for our time zone is 8:00pm, Sunday nights. However, during the mid-season 5 finale which aired this past Sunday, someone (an idiot!) posted the biggest spoiler ever on the show's Facebook page before the first run of the episode finished. Not cool.
