Music!

Today’s musical line-up brought to you by the letter C. Because cats. And cookies. And cupcakes. And coffee. And caffeine. Pretty much all good things in life. Yay coffee! Anyway this is what’s in my ears right now. Good tunes.

There will be times you might leap before you look…

“Call it surrender but you know that that’s a joke / And the punchline is you were never actually in control / But still, surrender anyway”

Do It Anyway, Ben Folds Five

I honestly can’t believe I haven’t shared this before since I absolutely love the video (ANNA KENDRICK CAMEO FTW!) – I adore Fraggle Rock so I posted this thing like fifty times on Twitter and Facebook because I was obsessed with it. I hadn’t actually listened to the song in awhile though and it came on this morning and it was so very appropriate to things in my life right now. I avoid so much and over-think and overanalyze and sometimes I just forget to do. So this is a good reminder.

Got the sense I was not her type by the black eye and bloody nose…

“It’s suffocating to say, / But the female mystique takes my breath away. / So give me a smile or give me a sneer, / ‘Cause I’m trying to guess here.”

Deer in the Headlights, Owl City

Again, a song that came on and I felt was relevant to my life. I think we’ve all felt this way before – like a deer trapped in the headlights and whether the outcome is good or bad, it’s life and it’s not easy to guess what other people are thinking unless they give you a black eye. Or something. You get what I’m saying.

What are you listening to today? And go!

Jimmy Fallon’s Video: We Are the World of Warcraft

If you hadn’t seen this yet, you’re welcome. It premiered last night on Jimmy Fallon and is probably one of the deepest songs I’ve ever heard… about gaming. Brought a little tear to the eye of my Belf Warlock.

I love that I recognize so many folks in that video from the WoW community and the Geekery community at large. Felicia Day, Chris Hardwick, Chloe Dykstra, and a few folks from the Frogpants forums as well. Y’all make my life.

FOR THE HORDE!

Some Day Your Gay Prince Will Come [Video]

This is quickly becoming Nikki’s blog of music and videos! But that’s okay, right? Because it’s quality. And quality is what counts.

I’m gonna keep telling myself that until it’s true.

ANYWAY. Y’all need to watch this and you need to watch the ENTIRE thing. It’s a little slow at first, but once you get past the crazy (and hilarious) fairy godmother, the dancing is incredible. And the entire video is amazing and whoever mashed the songs up is GENIUS. Not lying. Watch it and you will understand.

It also makes me cry with happiness because, gosh, “some day we’ll be part of your world.” Just watch it.

The cameos in this video are incredible, too. I love every single person who is in the video and who helped make it. THANK YOU. <3

Silly Video Time: Gangnam Style

Because sometimes I’m just at a loss for words and I have to share.

Just when you think it’s over, it keeps going.

Someones needs to FlashMob this.

Alive with the Sound of Music.

While traversing the many intricate layers of the internet, I somehow stumbled upon this little video (I lie – a friend actually sent it to me via email, but it sounds more impressive if I “forget” to mention that part). Either way, this video rocks and very clearly shows exactly what people can do when the motivation strikes (and quite possibly a few catchy refrains of pop culture musicals are played over loud speakers).

You have to admit, that would be amazing to see. I’d be the one dancing offbeat, messing up the steps because I’d want to pretend I was in on it all along when really I was just a simple passer-by. My attempts at being cool and popular often fail, if you hadn’t guessed by now.

Enjoy the video.

My Face Hurts from Laughing.

Seriously. I found this years ago, but rediscovered it just now. Oh my god, I was laughing so hard I was crying. Freakin’ hilarious.

My favorite part is the guy in the background completely oblivious. Oh my god. Seriously funniest thing I have ever seen. Oh man. Can’t breathe.

Actually, just search Asian BSB on YouTube. Their videos are absolutely ridiculous and absolutely genius. I cannot stop laughing. Their facial expressions are just awesome.

Scary Mary Poppins Video

Amused. And slightly worried I’ll have nightmares.
