30 Days of Thankful: Rhianna, Baths, and Being Broken

I love this song. The first time someone posted it to their Facebook I played it over and over. I’m thankful to all the creative people out there, producing work that makes my days a little happier. But I’m especially happy for the pretty people who like to be filmed bathing. I’ve such a girl crush on Rhinanna. ;)

My favorite part of the song is:

Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving/
‘Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving.

I thought for a long time that I was broken, that no one could love me, that there was something inherently wrong with who I was. Now I know love is as much about receiving as it is giving. I never had to opportunity to receive love before, and I’m thankful for the experience of receiving love more than I can express. So sometimes I just lie on the floor with the music going- happy.

Singing with Kristin Chenowith

A vocal teacher got to sing with Kristin Chenowith and actually did harmonies! I love it. While the quality of the video is poor I do love Chenowith’s reactions. Actually I just love her, she’s bright, quirky, and I’m pretty sure I would make a great best friend for her, if she’d only give me a chance.

I love when she does pranks on Ellen. ROFL.

Video Day: A Post Full of Videos to Take Up Your Time. You are Welcome.

Nerdy Love Song with Kitten Bombing. This video is just too cute for words. [via The Mary Sue]

Austenland is being made into a movie. This looks cute. I do really like Kerry Russell. [via The Mary Sue]

Agents of Shield, the spin-off from the Avengers because Agent Coulsen is the BOMB! Gah, I think I’m drooling!

Old Boy remake Starring Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. The problem with these type of movies is that I really want to watch them to find out the mystery aspect of the movie but I have to keep my eyes closed for much of it, because there is a lot of graphic violence. Also, there is some nudity. So the trailer is NSFW. 

Doctor Who Day: Tutus, Monsters, and Crossovers

This TARDIS tutu is rather simplistic, but I do love the idea. I’m not sure it is worth $150 as it looks like a cami (with TARDIS printing on it) has been sown onto tulle, but it is pretty. Aaaand further research shows that the $150 is only for the skirt. Hmmm. Well, perhaps tulle is expensive?  Hmmm, well it does look labor intensive? I guess. Anyway, interesting idea. [via]

I know I have posted other mash-ups with Sully and Mike and the TARDIS door, but I just love this concept art. I just rewatched Monsters Inc. because Chris had never seen it and I wanted to rewatch it before I saw Monsters U, but then I never saw Monsters U. Which is still a bummer. Perhaps I’ll try to see it this weekend. [via]

I really enjoy beloved characters meeting each other, like this Doctor Who and Garfield cross over. The only time I want to see a Dalek and wouldn’t take a bat to it is if it were here to exterminate Mondays. You can buy it as a t-shirt or hoodie on Redbubble.

So there is this concrete bench down by the lake near where I live that gets painted every year. A committee comes up with a theme, divides the wall into sections and participants are given a section to paint as they will. It’s a  cool concept and a great time with food vendors and music every year. Unfortunately this year I was on vacation while the festival took place, but my mom went and she got a picture of a very geeky section of the wall.

Disney Dudez Boy Band

While not the best at lip syncing, these cute singing boys decide to start a boy band after the Disney Princesses dump them. (Basically they remix the well known songs for each prince/princess.) I’m pretty sure most of these boys would rather be dating drag queens than actual princesses, but the song remixes are cute and the dancing is fun. (Thanks to JohnMichael S. for the tip.)

Music Calms a Three Year Old

When we were helping my sister move, Chris lent my sister a CD to a band called The XX. I had never heard of them before, but found them enjoyable and a nice break from reading out loud. The most amazing thing, though, was that the understandably cranky three year old would calm down and her body would relax the second the music started playing.

I just got back from a week vacation to the east coast to visit Chris and we went and saw The XX in concert. We stood out on the lawn and watched as lights danced on stage and the crowds went wild. Below is my favorite song and the one they played on encore.

Doctor Who Day: TARDIS Bow Tie, Cosplay, and Kissing

Doctor Who Day

Special Request: A special shout out to all of my new recent viewers and followers! I love meeting new people and I’ve enjoyed visiting your blogs. Thanks for the follow! I’ve had a recent influx of visitors from Facebook and I can’t for the life of me figure out why. If there is a particular Facebook image or post that sent you my way, would someone let me know about it? Thanks! Enjoy my Doctor Who Day post where I link you up to all the fun stuff for Whovians this week. 

A TARDIS bow tie for the Whovian bow tie enthusiast! You can get your own for only $20. Plus you don’t actually have to tie it, it comes on an elastic band. [via]

I do love cosplay, especially Doctor Who cosplay, so I enjoy the FuckYearDoctorWhoCosplay tumblr account. But I especially enjoyed this River Song cosplay by Ambrosia. [via] I wish my hair would stay curly like that instead of disintegrating in this humidity. Sigh.

Vastra and Jenny Flint kissing away. So cute! If you go to the link you can browse more like this and see lots of Doctor Who kissing. Always a good time. [via]

Build a light fixture that looks like a crack to the universe in your wall. Super clever! I love it. Annnd I have a handy boyfriend. Hmmm.

I received notification from Vince Garbarino that he had created an arrangement on the 11th Doctor’s theme, “I Am The Doctor.” It’s pretty cool. You should listen to it while you check out the links on this post.
