Jason Derulooooooo!

I’ve just seen this new Jason Derulo music video. First of all, I would like to say that I’m quite pleased he’s stopped shouting out his own name. On the other hand, now he’s found someone else to do it for him, so I’m less pleased about that.

It looks like the video was shot in Dr. Suess’ house with Liberace’s furniture. But also a little bit like they borrowed a green screen from The Lion King for the dance numbers.

Never has there been more seductive trumpet playing.

Wedding dancing

“So Julia, what else have you been up to, besides reading and moping over your lack of internet,” you ask me? Even if you didn’t, I’m still going to tell you. I’ve been to ALL the weddings, and it’s been lovely. Continue reading

Dancing on my Own

I know today is Triple-post Thursday, but I’m exhausted and I can’t think of one thing witty to write, let alone two, so this is all you’re getting. Just imagine that this was in two separate parts. I even contemplated doing that, but then decided I couldn’t be bothered. So you’ll have to help me out here. Continue reading

The Return To The She Wolf

I talked about this briefly yesterday, but the more I thought about it, the less I was able to just leave it at that. There are so many things that are hilarious about this video. And song.

Growing up is hard to do (oh my gluteus!)

In a couple months I turn 25. A quarter of a century! I can rent a car in the United States! It’s all terribly epic and exciting. And I promise you I am not one of those people who dreads birthdays and getting older and who will have a meltdown upon turning 25. That all seems a bit silly to me. I think that age is how you feel, and while I pride myself on being professional and intelligent, I’m ridiculously silly and prone to laughing until I cry. I will feel young forever, I don’t even think growing up is an option for me. But I will say that last night at dance I’ve never felt so incredibly old in my whole life. Continue reading

Puffy Shirts Are Not Modern

This weekend I was searching for songs that I could use in the recital this year. I came across quite a few gems, let me tell you. Take this hilarious song by Tom Jones for instance: Continue reading

I’ve Given In To The Avant-Garde

I don’t know what it is, maybe just prolonged exposure, but I’ve begun to give in to the avant-garde. Let me be clear, however, that I have not accepted all of it. I still wholly reject the stuff that sounds like I’m about to be murdered by Satan’s tiny, baby army. No Karlheinz Stockhausen for me. Continue reading

Make ‘Em Laugh

This week for Entertainment Friday, I treat you to a clip of Donald O’Connor dancing. God bless him. Part me wonders how many bruises he got doing that scene. Gracious. Continue reading

Rights of passage

On the weekend Hil and I went to the most disgusting place – likely ever. It was definitely dirtier and scarier than anything I’ve experienced, including giant rats in the basements of London hostels. That place was Phil’s. Continue reading

Oh Hey, Ankle Pain, How Have You Been?

Like I promised yesterday, I will now tell you about our wedding adventures in Ottawa. Besides getting lost a few times within the city, it was basically uneventful. Uneventful, but loads and loads of fun. It was a beautiful ceremony, a delicious meal (which is good because, with weddings, it can really go either way), and the speeches were touching and emotional (in a good way).

Here’s Julia (looking fabulous in her bridesmaid dress) and I after the ceremony with our brother and his lovely fiancee.
