Want a Pair of Animal Legs?

If this isn’t the most disturbing thing I’ve seen all day, I don’t know what is.  No, no…  I’m not talking about the pair of enormous centaur legs that woman is sporting.  I’m speaking of that mind-boggling skirt she’s wearing near the end of the video.  Iridescent brown?  I rest my case.  Dis-turb-ing.

Lovely Lyrics

A group of wonderful musicians, Coldplay–you may have heard of ’em–have far too many brilliant, beautiful melodies for me to be able to rave about them all. However, a short and sweet song you might enjoy is “Trouble.”

Oh no, I see
A spider web is tangled up with me
And I lost my head
The thought of all the stupid things I’d said

Oh no, what’s this
A spider web, and I’m caught in the middle
So I turn to run
The thought of all the stupid things I’ve done

And I never meant to cause you trouble
I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well, if I ever caused you trouble
And, oh no, I never meant to do you harm

O no, I see,
A spider web, and it’s me in the middle
So I twist and turn
Here am I in my little bubble

Singing I, I never meant to cause you trouble
And I, I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well, if I ever caused you trouble
Oh, no I never meant to do you harm

They spun a web for me
They spun a web for me
They spun a web for me

What if I got it wrong

Parenting Attachments

My professor’s husband is a part of an e-show called DadLabs, which is an absolute riot. In this clip, my professor’s father-in-law has a few words of advice for his son–and my professor’s husband–regarding the Empathy Belly, and the overall advisability of gaining insight by strapping things on. “Sometimes there is no substitute for the wisdom of experience.”

“Hometown Glory”

Adele, the Grammy-winning English crooner, has had mad props given to her for her divine talent and sensational debut album, “19.” Her commanding vocals resemble those of Etta James and Amy Winehouse, yet Adele maintains a very distinctive sound.

Songs like “Chasing Pavement” and “Cold Shoulder” rocketed Adele to stardom, even earning her the Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance awards at the Grammys this year. The song that ignites my bones, however, is Adele’s soon-to-be smash hit, “Hometown Glory.” It’s poetic; it’s haunting; it’s ardent.

I beg you to listen to it, and see if you don’t find yourself reminiscing of summers during your childhood or growing up in the cities and suburbs.

Love that Adele.

Steelers’ Holmes Keeps Feet on the Ground

Many Steelers fans were stricken with panic when the Cardinals rebounded in the last quarter of Super Bowl XLIII, but not Santonio Holmes–he kept his feet on the ground. Literally.

In what had to have been the most well caught pass of the game (if not the season), Holmes planted his tip-toes on the very lip of the boundary line, allowing the Steelers to pull ahead enough in the last minute of the game to win.

He was cornered. He caught a pass from [Steelers quarterback] Ben Roethlisberger on the back side of the end zone, with three Arizona Cardinals bearing down on him while he balanced on the tips of his toes. (New York Times)

For a moment, Holmes sat crouching over, clutching the ball to his chest. As thousands of Steelers fans jumped to their feet and cheered, Holmes seemed to need just a quiet second or two to soak in what had just happened. His teammates ran and fell on top of him, patting his helmet and shoulders with great gaiety and pride.

Holmes was voted the game’s most valuable player. He caught nine passes for 131 yards. (New York Times)

They’ve Got Heart

Damn Yankees” was the production of choice this year for the Pearland High School choir. I saw the musical during opening weekend, and I was blown away by the immense talent of these high school students. I felt that Van Buren did the best. I may be slightly biased, considering my brother plays this roll; however, John does have a great voice. What can I say? The Obenhauses can’t help but to be exceptionally talented–sorry.

Check out my brother singing his solo, “Heart” (he’s the first to begin singing).
