You'll Be Happy To Know

For some reason I decided to put on the Hootie and the Blowfish album this morning. I would think that I don't need to clarify that it was Cracked Rear View vs. any of the other Hootie albums. Anyhow, you'll be happy to know that it's still awesome. I still love it. It still makes me happy inside my heart.

It's all Hold My Hand and Only Wanna Be With You. And then it's all Time and Drowning. And then they'll take it down a notch with I'm Coming Home and Not Even the Trees and Goodbye. God it's just a beautiful album. The only thing I would change, the only thing, is that Let Her Cry would have one less verse.

Secondly, The Sing Off is a great show. It's an a capella singing competition. It's like American Idol without the sucking. Anyway, one of the shows the groups had to sing a "guilty pleasure" song and when they said that at the beginning of the eisode, I was like, "I know what song I would choose as my guilty pleasure," and then this group Committed came through with this gem.

December Classic Video: Celebrity Sing Along

This is mad random. I don't think I've even sat down for like 2 consecutive hours over the past three months, let alone put together the thought processes required to write a blog post of even marginal quality, but this I had to post.

This "celebrity" sing along is somehow the single most European thing that's ever happened. It's got a few B-listers scattered in the front, like Jason Alexander and Huey Lewis, but then it just gets weird. When Ricki Lake is in the second edit, you know it's got to be downhill from there (PS - I always thought she was pretty cute). My single favorite is the kid who plays young Forrest Gump at the 5:20 mark. But there are some other gems.
