I’ll be spending this coming weekend with some of my very favorite people. We’re getting together for a writing retreat in the north Georgia mountains. So here’s a song I’ll always consider an anthem to friendship. 🙂
My busy weekend meant I never had time to queue up a post for today, so I’m going to borrow from Shira Anthony’s musical post about her new story, Dissonance, which comes out on Friday from Dreamspinner. It’s the latest in her fabulous Blue Notes series, and she’s put together a playlist to go with it. Check out her post and the accompanying (heh) links here!
On Friday, my parents will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. They are still very much in love and a wonderful example of a couple who’ve weathered every storm together. They’re a large part of the reason I believe in things like romance and true love.
And this is their song. 🙂
Yeah, this post is basically just an excuse to stare at hot guys dancing in very little clothing. It’s also seasonally appropriate. So there. 😉
It doesn’t matter what the calendar says—the beginning of June means the start of summer for me. So depending on how you look at it, I’m either early or late. Either way, I thought I’d kick off the real season with some “Summertime.”
(Yes, I’m invoking NKOTB. I am unashamed!)
It’s been a pretty long time since I had a real vacation. No author gigs, no holiday celebrations, no family obligations. Today and tomorrow, for two glorious days sandwiched in between RainbowCon and the Dreamspinner author workshop, I’ll be visiting with my cousins in Tampa, and I plan to spend most of it doing nothing. Considering their favorite pastimes are lounging by the pool or on the beach, that should be no problem whatsoever!
A Facebook friend posted this on Friday, and I had to watch it again. It’s a powerful song written by a brilliant musician, and the video is a mesmerizing performance by an incredibly talented actor. Watching Robert Downey Jr. “sing” these words adds extra layers of depth to their meaning, much as with Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt.” If anyone knows…
There are about a million performances of this by now, but here’s the original, from 1998. Still cracks me up.
Merry Christmas, everybody!
Saturday night, I finally got to see P!nk in concert.
Adam Levine is just one of those inexplicably, incredibly sexy people… and this is an unapologetically sexy song. Mmm-hmm…
