Vide-OH! of the Day

12 Jun

I urge you to listen to and watch this video if you’re in the mood for an extreme adrenaline/motivation boost. Seriously, after a couple of repeats of this song I am ready to go karate kick terrorists in the face while simultaneously building something really large/moving heavy bricks/yelling forcefully at someone or something. POWER!

200th Post about 200 Things About Me

30 Apr

Well here I am at my 200th post. Crazy to think that a lack of employment and a need to complain about life has gotten me here. And by ‘here’ I mean about as broke and weird as I was when I started this, but now with a job that makes me wake up early (I understand that 8 o’clock isn’t really early, but I still hate it)

I decided to celebrate my 200th post by posting 200 random things that haven’t made it into posts and probably never will, but are still pretty significant parts of my life. Included in that are: websites I love, things in general that I hate, places I want to go to, favorites, a bunch of weird stuff.

So check out my list of 200 Erica Things:

I don’t know what’s happening here, but it’s beautiful and passionate and artistic creative and hilarious and I love it.

This video is amazing. Honestly, my jaw dropped when I saw his reaction to music. I can’t believe how magical human life can be.

The Fray Should NOT Be Singing the National Anthem

3 Apr

As excited as I was to watch the NCAA National Championship game last night, (mainly because I knew the team I picked would win… holla Kentucky!) my joy was immediately smushed when The Fray walked out to sing the National Anthem.

If you missed the awfulness, watch here:

…soooo… What?

First of all, is The Fray still a thing? I mean, I can only remember them from that song on “Grey’s Anatomy” like six years ago.

Second of all, seriously? Seriously? I understand, you’re The Fray and you’re above it all and cool and whatever, but it’s the National Anthem. Ditch the scoop neck tees and neck chains, put a smile on, and actually look like you give a crap about it! And what was with the drum guy? Really? You’re thatcool

Insert eye roll here.

dude? How heavy is your little drum you bought straight off the rack from Urban Outfitters and a tambourine that you can’t even stand up straight or lift your arm up for a minute and a half? I played bass drum in parades in high school. I know your little toy isn’t that hard to use, buddy, stop looking like you’re god’s gift to women because you’re the drummer of The Fray.

I understand that I’m old school. I like a nice, solid anthem from a pretty pop star without warbly, gutteral voice junk. But this was almost intolerable. Come on “rock stars” (notice how I put rock stars in quotes because The Fray are not rock stars, they’re stupid), you can stop acting like you’re the most important person on earth for two minutes to sing a song that’s much older and much cooler than you.

I present: Jason Mraz’s “Bella Luna.” This is one of those songs that will always, always, always be one of my favorite songs. It’s so wonderfully romantic I completely forgot about it for a few months until Pandora decided to throw it into the mix today. Now I will be listening to it on loop all afternoon and I feel like I should invite you to join me.
