The Lysol Booth At Blogher 2012

7th August 2012

I’m back from Blogher in NYC and I had a great time. I’ll have a post about it in the next couple of days, but until then I wanted to share a video with you.

While at the Expo, someone (and I’m sorry but I can’t remember who it was), suggested I check out the Lysol booth and ask them if they know a song.

So I did.

And here’s what happened.

Clearly, the most entertaining booth at the expo.

Good times.

SNL’s Seth Meyers On The Breast-Feeding Time Cover

14th May 2012

I watched SNL on the weekend and sure enough Weekend Update was one of the funniest segments of the show.

Not surprisingly, Seth Meyers brought up the Time magazine cover that everyone is talking about right now, during his “Really?!?” segment.

Thanks to my Tivo, here’s what was said (I would have loved to add the video but I was blocked by YouTube. If you’re in the U.S., you can find it on Hulu).

This week Time Magazine created a controversy with a cover story of attachment parenting that used this photo (shows cover), which brings us to a segment we like to call, REALLY!?!

Really, Time Magazine? THIS is the image you went with for Mother’s Day? Look I have nothing against breastfeeding, but there are more appropriate places to breastfeed your kid than the cover of Time magazine. For example, page three of Time Magazine, or you know, not in a magazine at all, I mean really. And look, it’s not the act that bothers me, it’s this photo. When I first glanced at the cover I didn’t think, oh it’s a mom breastfeeding her kid, I thought, did the kid from Modern Family sexually assault his yoga instructor. Really, this photo doesn’t say I’m a loving mother feeding my son, it says I’m the crazy queen from Game of Thrones, I mean really.

And really, Mom, what’s with your expression? You couldn’t do a smile, you had to go with Blue Steel? Really? And really, this poor kid and the expression on his face looked like someone just flipped on the bedroom lights, “Oh Bob, you’re back from your business trip, it’s uh not what it looks like, uh, I assure you it’s not what it looks like.” And really, what’s with the camouflage pants? You do realize there’s not enough camouflage in the world to hide from the blow back this kid is going to experience. Also, I’m going to warn you now kid, when you get older, I got a feeling your mom isn’t going to like any of your girlfriends, really. And there’s still like a 95% chance you’re going to end up co-managing a motel with her skeleton. Really.

Look, we all have to deal with a little hassle on Mother’s Day, but when that lady’s your mom, every day is going to be Mother’s Day. And Time, don’t get me wrong, I understand you have to do what it takes to sell magazines and it’s a good cover, but if you wanted a great cover, you would have photoshopped out the chair. I mean, really.

Did you watch? What did you think?

Five Year Old Sings Fun’s We Are Young – Video

2nd May 2012

My 5yo sings this song all day long. Well, her version anyway.

We play it on continuous loop to make her happy on the way to school. She has no idea what they’re saying for the most part but I love how she improvises.

I tried to record her without her noticing but I failed. As you can tell, she’s not shy when it comes to singing or anything for that matter.

I thought it was too cute not to post.

Call Your Girlfriend – Robyn & SNL Videos

30th April 2012

I love Robyn.

She’s different, which is what I like about her.

Some people might consider her weird (I love her), but at least weird is not boring.

The girl can sing and she can dance.

I can’t remember when I discovered her, but I kind of fell for her when I watched her dance to her song Call Your Girlfriend in her video.

The video is shot in one take – that makes it pure awesome.

Then this past weekend, I discovered that SNL’s Taran Killam recreated the video in this tiny room at 4:30 a.m. at SNL offices.

It is priceless – He’s almost perfectly in sync with her video, and he has the best furry jacket on that I’ve ever seen.

I’ve never wanted to work at SNL more than after I watched this video. Best job ever.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, you can watch a side-by-side comparison, and you’re welcome.

Matthew’s Day Off – Video

30th January 2012

I am of the Ferris Bueller generation – yup that makes me cool.

So when I saw this video, I was super excited!

I assumed it meant a sequel, because don’t we all want to know if Old Ferris Bueller, with the probable receding hairline, is still adorably cool?

Alas, we’re not so lucky, it turns out it’s only a Superbowl ad dammit.

Cute, and very reminiscent of the movie, but just an ad nevertheless. How sad for us.

Also, proof that Matthew Broderick does not age.

T-Mobile’s Home for the Holidays Surprise – Video

18th December 2011

I love the holidays.

It’s the time of year where surprises are everywhere, and I just love a good surprise.

Have you ever experienced a flash mob? I haven’t personally, but even watching them warms my cockles.

I ADORE this one by T-Mobile at Chicagoland area’s Woodfield Mall that features There’s No Place Like Home For The Holidays.
