If this isn't a big giant reminder to slow down. I don't know what is. Please put your phone away. Big truck driver.....remember that thing might get going faster but, doesn't slow down any faster.
This is crazy insane. Stay with the whole time. You'll be amazed how the pileup just continues to grow.
It happened near Germantown, which is just northwest of Milwaukee. I can't believe all the people getting out of their cars. They're crazy! I guess whiteout conditions are the reason people weren't slowing down and, apparently, never saw the pileup ahead.
Just a reminder to be safe out on the roads.
I guess the headline says it all. The United States Air Force Band staged a flash mob style performance at the National Air & Space Museum. They picked a gorgeous song, too. Mashing up a medley of Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring & Joy to the World.
I'm pretty sure it'll give ya chills. I know it gave me chills. Plus the video recording itself looks and sounds great.
WARNING: It does start a little slow, but stick with it. Once it opens up, it's gorgeous.
Happy Holidays! Enjoy!
Calgary based airline, WestJet, staged their "Christmas Miracle". Months of planning. 19 hidden cameras. Loads of volunteers. St. Nick. Christmas wish lists fulfilled.
All this came together to surprise passengers with exactly what they wanted for Christmas. Brilliant idea. Brilliant marketing. Win. Win. Win.
In 1994, Mariah Carey gave the Christmas classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You" new life. Well, now she's teaming up with Jimmy Fallon to do that all over again. And it's as brilliant as you'd guess.
SO....the Cities97 World Headquarters building people put up these lovely ginormous Christmas trees.....yes, there is another one directly behind me in this pic.
It didn't get me thinking of balls of holly or how lovely thy branches. Got me thinking of this PHENOMENAL video of Kiefer Sutherland. A quick background on the video, although he sets it up pretty nicely in the video itself. Kiefer worked with the band Rocco Deluca & The Burden. (A band I'm pretty sure Cities has played in the past). And Kiefer went out on the road with them, through Europe, as their tour manager. A film crew followed them to make a documentary about the band (which is EXCELLENT by the way, a really great film), well......there's one scene that has lived infamy since.
Kiefer attacks a giant Christmas tree....if you can't tell in the vid, this isn't a Super 8, this is a 5 star hotel, which makes this behavior even more awesome.
It's SO very heart warming to see Zach Sobiech's legacy living on & his dreams coming true. To see the vision he had for the project working out just like he wanted it to. I had the pleasure of meeting Zach a few times, as well as his incredible parents and some family. It's blows me away what an impact he made on me in the few short hours we interacted as well as his impact on the world. I feel so lucky and blessed to have met him. He is truly an inspiration. The world needs more Zach Sobiech's.
If you didn't hear, yesterday (Thursday the 5th) about 5,000 people gathered at the Mall Of America to, in Zach's name, perform Zach's song "Clouds" in an effort to raise money for the Children's Cancer Research Fund & Gillette Specialty Children's Care. Zach recorded "Clouds" as a goodbye to his friends and family as he battled, so bravely, osteosarcoma. Like I said, Zach is an inspiration and the courage & vision he had to execute all of this, in a time where his life could've filled with darkness, is quite admirable and commendable.
We love and miss you so much Zach.
The American Authors are a Brooklyn based band, but have ties to Minnesota. Zach, the singer, was raised in Minnetonka. Now the guys have another tie to our lovely state. SOTA Clothing. The guys rocked threads from the local clothing maker at their show at the Triple Rock this past Sunday.
Earlier in the day, we had the guys in Studio C, including 3 songs and some chit chat with me.
Digital Ugly Christmas Sweaters. I truly can not believe this exists. And there isn't just one style. There are actually multiple sweaters to choose from!? Huh!? I really am left without words, which isn't easy.
Caroling Kitty......this is just creepy......
Are these peeps geniuses who will be living on easy street or did just give away money coming up with one of the most ridiculous concepts ever? Would you wear this?
Well, let the "year end" content begin I suppose. I've got to imagine this is just the beginning of creative ways to corral and summarize things that happened in 2013.
I actually got out my iPhone and just started adding movies we wanted to see to our iTunes wish list. Movies we didn't get to and/or completely forgot about, so it served a purpose for me as well. :)
