Yeah, ya know how I said that I’d be posting daily from now on?  Well, this weekend doesn’t count.  I have a perfectly good reason, though, I’m going to be over my uncle’s house, where it’s not likely I’ll be able to connect to the internet at all.  So, anyway, this video will have to tide you over for the next few days.  I caught this video once or twice on VH1 during those increasingly rare occasions that the station shows anything remotely relevant to its music-hungry viewers.  Its summery effervescence has to be seen to be believed, and the song itself is so catchy (and so something that I can relate to, to the point that it may have replaced Matchbox 20’s “Unwell” as my sorta-kinda-official theme song) that it’s been stuck in my head for nearly the entire day.  And remember, this is all you’re getting for the next few days, so by the time I’m back I expect you all to have the lyrics and the dance moves memorized.  There might be a quiz.  Mom, you’re exempt, being that you’ll be at my uncle’s house for the weekend too.  But seriously, dear readers (if you do, in fact, exist), enjoy the video, and enjoy the holiday weekend.


So I’ve Pretty Much Decided to Post at Least Once Daily… September 1, 2011

…starting today.  I know, it’s been a month or two since my last post, and my posts have been few and far between in the past few years.  But now that I’ve graduated, I’ve got a whole heck of a lot of free time on my hands and no excuse not to post as often anymore.  Besides, being an aspiring writer (and possible music journalist/reviewer), it’ll give me the incentive to actually, y’know, write.  About stuff that I’m passionate about.  That also means that a larger percentage of my posts will be about mundane stuff like that cool song I heard on the radio today (can’t think of any from today in particular, just hypothetically) or reflect on some facet of my lifelong music fandom and music in general.  I’ll still try to keep up with the “Videos of the Week” (maybe actually make them a weekly thing, as their name suggests), and occasionally will post some big feature like one of my lists or some tribute to one of my all-time favorite bands/artists/albums/genres/soundtracks/songs/whatever.  But for now, it’s late, and I need to get up early for work tomorrow, so I’ll leave you with one of my favorite YouTube videos ever, which is no less than 25 kinds of hilarious.  Enjoy.
