I think this is from Parks and Recreations, not sure, but OMG it is cracking me up!
I recorded this video at Peter Gabriel’s Back To Front performance at the Hollywood Bowl. I went expecting a nice concert but walked out super impressed with his showmanship, performance, voice and his ability to put on a multimedia spectacular. I have a new appreciation for him! Such a cool experience.
Snippet of the song “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel. Recorded at the Back To Front performance, Hollywood Bowl, October 6, 2012.
My friends ask why I have never seen the original Wizard of Oz.
Much respect to the movie, but to me, it cannot trump the soul-touching, personally meaningful attributes of my personal classic, The Wiz.
I am learning about all the symbols of the original story and feel that those symbols still exist in the Sidney Lumet version of the tale. I won’t assert that it totally defines the African American experience for all of us, but I can say that it defines a bunch of experiences for me!
So moving. So inspiring.
I just love how I feel when I watch it. Ready to stand tall and face what comes next. Knowing that I am powerful beyond my own measure. That I had everything I needed all along, inside of me. And isn’t that just a wonderful thing that classics do?
To all of you out there in the grind, doing what you love, looking for what you love, loving who you are…
I dedicate this song to you.
You’re standing, strong and tall.
You’re the greatest of them all.
If on courage you must call.
Keep on trying, and trying, and trying.
You’re a lion.
In your own way.
YOU’RE A LION.
This is hilarious and sooooo true. We should enjoy the amazing stuff we can do every day.
My first Producer credit! For a righteous jam, I must say myself. Damn proud, I am.
Damn it, do I need ANOTHER Maroon 5 song to become obsessed with and play ad nauseum?!?!? This joint is just too damn catchy.
Proof that Jason Bateman is the magic unicorn of our age. All that is good and perfect involves this man.
I can’t even believe that this was produced. We’ve come a long way, ladies.
HAIL TO THE V
Feeling like a New York state of mind tonight…
I hereby dub this series “Tracks I’m Bumping”!
Just cause I like to share with you what I’m listening to.
The inaugural edition goes to a classic…
I’m Free (Heaven Helps The Man)
It’s a Footloose track, I know, but it actually holds a lot of wisdom for those who listen carefully.
NOTHING I WANT IS OUT OF MY REACH! I’M FREE!
