Thursday Thirteen, Edition 13

Every now and then even *I* take a break from reading and blogging romance.

The internet has been an incredible arena for people to connect and share their creativity in so many ways. I do love the cool stuff that shows up on YouTube from time to time. Most of these were spotted and shared on Facebook by friends of mine. Watch a few (or all of them, if you have time to kill, LOL) and share a few that inspire you or make you laugh. In no particular order, here are:


1. Badly animated hippo sings (embedding disabled, sorry)

2. Not the original, but the best Mahna Mahna:

3. Improv in Grand Central Station (so cool)

4. Playing For Change’s Stand by Me

5. More Muppets: OMG, DRUM BATTLE!

6. The first help desk (so funny!)

7. A day in the life of a mom (it's like the soundtrack to my childhood!):

8. Cake or death?

9. Torn- a strange mélange of mime and not-quite-ASL: -- the facial expressions and the word-by-word translation just make this.

10. This is a snip from what MIGHT be the funniest ½ hour of 1980s TV (though the very end was lame). If you’re patient enough, you can find most of the ep in the related snips (embedding disabled).

11. F*cking priceless:

12. Bohemian Rhapsody, but… different.

13. Did Mary Poppins freak you out? No? Maybe you should watch again.

Hope you found something to make you smile! Leave a comment and I'll stop by your place too!

I love the Playing for Change clip, I've played that often and had it on my own blog a while back too. The drum battle with Buddy Rich and Animal - classic. (And one of my drum-playing husband's favorites)

But OMG that Mary Poppins one is freaky, gives that movie a whole different look, doesn't it? I don't think I'll ever watch it the same way again.

I absolutely love Improv everywhere and Frozen Grand Central is one of their best.

I'll have to check the others out soon, but I remember the First Help Desk one!

Thanks so much for dropping by my T13 post. I, too, love Alpha Heroes :)
