Soooooo.....I was pretty proud of the lights we put up on our house for the holidays. (Never really done anything with lights in the past). Tried to keep it classy with a pretty combo of blue and white.......
It's over 2,000 lights overall. Like I said, I was feeling pretty accomplished, kind of mantastic.
Then I saw this............
Thanksgiving can be a hectic time what with all the traveling, cleaning, cooking and everything else that goes into hosting or attending a holiday feast. With so much going on last week, it's pretty easy to see how I managed to miss this clip but as soon as I spotted it today I knew it was too good not to share. Plus my Mom always said, better late than never.
Check out Jimmy Fallon with Rashida Jones + Carrie Underwood rockin' a medley of some new holiday gems set to the tune of some of this year's biggest hits:
It's equal parts funny, awkward and ACTUAL newscast. I'm surprised how straight Ron Burgundy plays this one.
Please please, pretty please, don't make this shaving be for nothing. I've had facial hair in some form my entire adult life, a beard for the last 4 years. Think about it. I've NEVER fully, clean shaved my face. Until now. That must tell you this is cause that's worth supporting. PLEASE DONATE HERE
Here is the face on Day 4. The stache is starting to fill in. Ways to go yet though.
I'm incredibly uncomfortable. I hate my face this way. Super self conscious, However, I know for a fact that there are TOO many men out there FAR more uncomfortable than me as they're fighting the nastiest disease on Earth. That jack ass known as cancer. Cancer got my hero, my Grandpa, and it just affects far too many people in general.
UPDATE: I've become slightly comfortable with the stache. Not enough to keep it though. Sunday will mark the day the beard begins it's return.
I've partnered with the Minnesota Wild for their #Movember campaign. Throughout the month of November we will raise awareness and funds for cancers affecting men. PLEASE visit my page and give, whatever you can. ONE dollar. FIVE dollars. TWENTY-FIVE dollars. Whatever. If ya can't spare even a dollar, please share this across all social media platforms.
THANK YOU FOR ANY AND ALL SUPPORT!!
Haven't posted "One Piece Of Good News" lately......this DEFINITELY works.
I don't really have much to add to this. I think the video speaks for itself. Makes ya feel good. Gives a sense of hope for our future as well.
This is a TOP 10 STORY of 2013. Ok, I added a little. Just watch it. Can't, not, smile.
I've been spreading the word of the this band since late 2011. I love them. I love them. I love them. They are, simply, one of the BEST LIVES BANDS ON EARTH. Period. The end. Performances are almost never any good on TV, yet this one gave me chills from head to toe. I had chills in my knees even. No kidding.
My feeling is, if you don't "get it" after watching this.....you never will. My guess is almost everyone does get it at this point. This band is just phenomenal. Friendly reminder, they're coming back in March. Details can be had here. I'd get tickets now if you wanna go. This one WILL sell out.
Apparently Channing Tatum had some downtime on the set of the sequel to 21 Jump Street and wanted to take a shot at the Jean Claude van Damme "splits" video. It goes about as good as you'd think it would. It's just as epic......but.....just.....in a completely different way.
Here's Jean Claude's original, in case you're like me and hadn't seen it.
On the 50th Anniversary of JFK's Assassination I thought this to be fitting. I don't have a ton to add as I'm not even CLOSE to a JFK expert, but I found this to be quite interesting. Both the way radio did things back then and just for the historical value.
Remember the Southwest Airlines campaign? The whole "wanna get away" bit? Pretty sure this reporter would've rather been ANYWHERE else. Turns out Guiness was going to check it out for possibly entry. 12,000 plus blocks, gone, just like that.
