Everything I Need This Christmas Released Today!

1

Congrats to my friend Jd Webb, who released his Christmas single today! 😀 You may remember me writing a while ago about the photo shoot for the cover of the single.

Here’s a really cool “behind the scenes” video that shows the “making of” the single.

Also in the video, that people who read my blog might be interested in – Charles Jones, Zane Carney, Sandy :), and Me! Sadly, I’m dressed as Santa, so I’m harder to spot. 😛 I was at the studio when they were filming, but do I make it in dressed like the normal me? No. Only in a beard and glasses. 😀 Five bucks if you spot me. 😀

Lyrics are below the video.

It’s lookin’ like it’s about to snow
The leaves on all the trees fell months ago
It’s Christmas, I’m so glad it’s Christmas

Once again the carolers are warming up to sing
All around you hear the sleigh bells ring

It’s Christmas, I’m so glad it’s Christmas

Once again I’m lookin’ out for some mistletoe
I just want the whole world to know

I got everything I need this Christmas
I don’t even need to make a wishlist
More than presents ‘neath the tree
When I’m with you it’s like the angels sing

I got everything I need this Christmas
As long as you’re here with me nothing’s missin’
So Santa don’t you worry ’bout me
Cause I got everything I need this Christmas

Everyone’s gathered round the tree
Laughin’ bout our favorite memories at Christmas
I’m so glad it’s Christmas

Once again all the presents wrapped so perfectly
Someone always tries to sneak a peak at Christmas
I’m so glad it’s Christmas

Once again having everyone we love here now
It makes me want Christmas all year round

I got everything I need this Christmas
I don’t even need to make a wishlist
More than presents ‘neath the tree
When I’m with you it’s like the angels sing

I got everything I need this Christmas
As long as you’re here with me nothing’s missin’
So Santa don’t you worry ’bout me
Cause I got everything I need this Christmas

Santa Don’t You Worry ‘Bout Me, I Got Everything I Need

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this yet. 😀

If you’re wondering about the title of the post, it’s lyrics from my friend Jd’s new Christmas single “I Got Everything I Need This Christmas” (or…the title might be shorter than that, I’m not sure, LOL). Watch for it on radio after Thanksgiving, it’s gonna be heavily placed.

So, anyway, at the photo shoot for the cover of the single, Jd had a bunch of his friends come and dress as Santa. Then we all crowded around him. Inside a school bus. I know. But it was a concept. He’s artsy. 🙂

Anyway, because Jd has the most randomly interesting and varied group of friends on the planet :D, the people there that day (and dressed as Santa!) included:

Me – uber famous blogger (just kidding :P)
Ah Young Kim – hot LA children’s clothing designer
Matt Locke – of HGTV’s DesignStar
Maiya Sykes – of VH1’s Bands on the Run
Charles Jones – played Carl in Dreamgirls, as well as toured with Jonny Lang, Joss Stone, Jennifer Hudson…everybody

It was a surreal experience, but really fun. The make-up girl ended up getting dressed up as Santa and being in the photo, as well as two of the ladies that worked at the bus company. It was hilariously fun! 😀

Here’s a picture of me and Charles, with Jd peeking in from behind –

Songs About Websites – AKA – Cybersongs :)

0

Inspired by yesterday’s reblog, I have decided to release the next in the series of reblogging myself. 🙂 This one is from InternetMarketingChick, as well.

ORIGINAL POST:

So, embedding Kina’s Digg song last week got me thinking about other songs I’ve heard that are about websites.

Not to brag or anything, but I’m KIND of the Queen of the Theme mixtape. For instance, I have managed to collect 27 songs that are all either called “Melanie” or feature a major character named “Melanie” – I call that one “Narcissism.” 😀 My masterpiece to date, though, is “Rockin’ While Stalkin'” – songs about stalking or being stalked. 😀

This mix I’ve put together here, I have to say, is pretty cool and I’m kinda proud of it, even though it only features 6 songs.

Enjoy!

Kina Grannis – Gotta Digg Here’s the song that gave me the idea in the first place. 😀

Alana Taylor – The Twitter Song It talks about Twitter AND Facebook, and even mentions Mahalo Daily 😀 Triple Threat

IM Love – Raining Jane This song doesn’t talk about a specific website, but…how can you not include Raning Jane? IMPOSSIBLE! God, I hope you’re not my Dad. That’s all I’m sayin’.

The Myspace Song – Good Clean Fun They know how Emo kids feel. 😀

I’m a Warrior – Steven Wagenheim Only song on the list dedicated to an IM forum. Come on eWealthers – catch up! Nebula/Jamie? Nothing? 😀

YouTube (A Love Song) – David Choi A lot of people claim they see a little smile at the end. I don’t. 🙂

Ebay – Weird Al Yankovic (contributed by xmx)

Facebook Anthem – LLP81 (I don’t think this is a band, just people that make funny videos, but it’s DAMN funny! 😀) (contributed by Ian Wilcox)

I Google You – Amanda Palmer (courtesy of Weblantis.org)

Coming Soon, hopefully, will be The Internet Killed Bookmobile by ColinSick. 😀

Did I Forget Any? Leave Them In The Comments, I’ll Amend the List!

Anna Cladakis Was Screwed By Outback Founder Chris Sullivan Twice

CRW_3190.jpgOnce when they conceived their baby and again when it came time for him to support it. :/

I don’t remember why this came up recently, but the main thing is it did, so I thought I would opine. 😀

I can’t honestly believe that Chris T. Sullivan, who is worth in the neighborhood of 150 MILLION DOLLARS, is balking at paying $7,500 a month for child support for his daughter, Charista.

I mean, I admit, the Mom does sound skanky and she does sound like she tricked him into going bareback in hopes of conceiving a lottery ticket, so to speak. No question.

But, forget that now. Now there’s a baby. And, trust me, Chris. You don’t want her to grow up and see that the very first thing you did for her in her early months and years of life was go into court and protest vehemently how much you didn’t want her.

BE A MAN!

Ghost Whisperer – Jim Dies!!

1

JLH Ghost Whisperer Promo UpdatedSo, Jim (Melinda’s husband – played by David Conrad) died on Ghost Whisperer tonight. How sad! I mean, it’s not like he really did a lot, show-wise, but still. They just had a very sweet relationship.

I guess the character is going to stay around for a while as a ghost, providing a newcomer’s perspective to the other side. That should be a really interesting storyline.

Still. I will miss the sweet Melinda/Jim interaction.

Check out a Jim/Melinda tribute vid in honor of Jim’s death:

If you’ve never been into Ghost Whisperer, you can catch up with past seasons on DVD:

You Can Vote However You Like by Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta Georgia

Well, the election’s over. I have to say, I am thrilled about some results and heartbroken over others. I would imagine that, no matter what your specific political views might be, you feel exactly the same way!

My friend and former team teaching partner Dana sent me a link to this video today. I have to say, I haven’t missed teaching since I left it as much as I did the instant I started watching this video. I cried!

Here’s the lyrics, in case they’re a little tough to decipher at some points:

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

(McCain supporters)
McCain is the man
Fought for us in Vietnam
You know if anyone can
Help our country he can
Taxes droppin low
Dont you know oils gonna flow
Drill it low
I’ll show our economy will grow

McCain’s the best candidate
With Palin as his running mate
They’ll fight for gun rights, pro life,
The conservative right
Our future is bright
Better economy in site
And all the world will feel our military might

(Obama supporters)
But McCain and Bush are real close right
They vote alike and keep it tight
Obama’s new, he’s younger too
The Middle Class he will help you
He’ll bring a change, he’s got the brains
McCain and Bush are just the same
You are to blame, Iraq’s a shame
Four more years would be insane

Lower your Taxes – you know Obama Won’t
PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS – You know McCain won’t!
Have enough experience – you know that they don’t
STOP GLOBAL WARMING – you know that you won’t

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA
Stick with McCain and you’re going to have some drama
We need it
HE’LL BRING IT
He’ll be it
YOU’LL SEE IT
We’ll do it
GET TO IT
Let’s move it
DO IT!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

I’m talking big pipe lines, and low gas prices
Below $2.00 that would be nice

But to do it right we gotta start today
Finding renewable ways that are here to stay

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA,
Stick wit McCain you gone have some drama
MORE WAR IN IRAQ
Iran he will attack
CAN’T BRING OUR TROOPS BACK
We gotta vote Barack!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Video of Jd Webb “Right Here” – Days of Our Lives Fans Rejoice!

0

So, many of you who know me in real life know this, but many of you who know me through the blogosphere may not – Jd Webb, one of my really good friends, as well as my business partner (not in blogging, in another business venture 😀), writes all the original music for Days of Our Lives, as well as sings most of the guy songs.

He’s never performed any of the songs live before, although the DOOL fans ask him to ALL THE TIME, but he made an exception for this one song that has become extremely popular. It’s called Right Here, and it’s (to torture a pun, haha) RIGHT HERE:
