Peter Hollens and His Hobbit Songs

As is probably apparent by now, I’m a huge fan of Peter Hollens. Here is his latest a cappella works based on The Hobbit movies.

Ed Sheeran – I See Fire- The Hobbit- Peter Hollens

But my favorite is still Peter Hollens performance of Song of the Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit

This Doctor Who/ Frozen Mashup is Amazing!

30 Days of Thankful: Adele, Fire to the Rain, and Yoga

I’m thankful for Adele. I love her voice and many of her songs resonate. One of my yoga teachers would play a song of hers and that was my favorite moment of yoga. I could loose myself in her words and forget that I was holding a pose for 60 seconds.

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.
