I have a few minutes here before supper, so I'm going to just write a quick blog today and do Review Wednesday tomorrow.
This past week has been fun. Exhausting, but fun. This is the first time Federation Band and Day Camp have gone together, so it's a new experience (and not one I would like to repeat). It seems interesting to me that I was bored for the weeks leading up to this week, and then all of a sudden I have several things to do at… Continue

Today's Song Tuesday comes to you from Children of Eden
I've been watching you for awhile now,
My pretty little misssssssss,
And I've got to tell you thisssssss:
You make me want to hisssssss
Your aimless curiosity
Is fast becoming tiresome.
Knowledge, dear, is power,
And it's high time you acquire… Continue

Hello one and all to the next installment of Things That Amuse Me. For today's episode (episode?) I am going to talk about a group of people who like to blow stuff up.
Things That Amuse Me #12: The MythBusters
Well, OK, they do do a bit more than just blow things up, but that is something they like to do. The MythBusters originally consisted of Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. After a couple of years they added Kari Byron, Tory Bellici, and Scottie… Continue

That's right. I did just write out the entire alphabet for my title. Or it's a song from Sesame Street. Either way.
Nothing much to report on today. It's a tad hot, but that's pretty much the most noteworthy event today. Mostly, I'm going to talk to you about this upcoming week.
This week is Day Camp/Federation Band. Originally it was just Day Camp, but the Federation Band has been moved back a week and so it's this week, too. As such, you may… Continue

Since I'm going to be gone for most of the day, I guess I should write my blog now, just in case I get home too late to write it.
So, in my review on Wednesday I was going to talk about one of the songs, but then I forgot. So, I'll do that now. In The Muppet Movie, there is one song in particular that is quite impressive. Not necessarily for the music or the lyrics, but because of who's singing it. The song I Hope That Somethin' Better Comes Along and it's a duet between… Continue

Today's installment of Things That Annoy Me is something that tends to happen with websites for reasons I don't understand.
Things That Annoy Me #12: Websites making pointless changes
As I got on to Facebook the other day, I noticed that they have made another change. It's harmless enough, but I just didn't see the point. In the section where you can see updates, they show the picture of the person who has written on your wall or did something… Continue

This is probably going to be my last Question Thursday. Why? Well, nobody's been asking me questions. Honestly, I don't care that much, but it just seems kind of silly for me to answer questions that I ask, so unless I receive some questions this week, I'm going to go ahead and stop doing Question Thursdays. What am I going to do instead? Basically, just what I've been doing for the past few Thursdays: write about whatever comes to mind. The only difference is that I won't start it with a… Continue

Since I reviewed The Muppet Show for the last Review Wednesday and since the song for yesterday's Song Tuesday came from The Muppet Movie, I think it's only fitting that for today's Review Wednesday, I review The Muppet Movie.
SPOILER: If you haven't seen this movie and don't wish to be spoiled (about the movie, that is), then read no further.
This movie was the first with the Muppets and actually came out close to the last season of The Muppet… Continue

Today's song for Song Tuesday comes to you from The Muppet Movie.
Movin' right along in search of good times and good news
With good friends you can't lose.
This could become a habit.
Opportunity knocks once,
Let's reach out and grab it.
Together we'll nab it.
We'll hitchhike, bus or… Continue

For today's installment of Things That Amuse Me, I'm going to talk about a favorite musical that was fairly recently added.
Things That Amuse Me #11: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
SPOILERS: If you haven't watched this musical and don't want to be spoiled, read no further.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical about the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. The county winners are… Continue

It's possible that some of you may be a bit confused by the title. I'm hoping that, by the end of the blog, you won't be confused by the title anymore. Maybe about other things, but not the title.
In Ohio, there is a church called the Solid Rock Church, located next to Interstate 75. On the outside of this church, there is (though, now it's was) a 65 foot statue of Jesus in plain view. It's actually kind of hard to miss if you're driving on I-75 past it. The actual name of… Continue

For today's Review Wednesday I'm going to talk about a television show that is no longer on the air that I find amusing: The Muppet Show.…

For today's blog I'm going to talk about what may be a touchy subject for some people.
Things That Annoy Me #11: Holier-than-thou attitudes
Now, I have never personally known anyone like this. But I do know that they exist. These are the people who see themselves as the perfect person because God said so (like, oh I don't know, perhaps Pat Robertson). Therefore, they can do no wrong. This means that they feel that they can criticize other people… Continue

Despite the title, this is still Question Thursday (#5 to be exact). However, since I ran out of questions and haven't gotten any more, I'll go ahead and ask myself a question to go with what I want to talk about today. If you watch Five Awesome Girls (which you totally should, by the way), then you know that this week has been Be the Change week, where they voice their support for the LGBTQ community. So, I"m going to do the same thing, but without the video.
What's your… Continue

It's true that today is Review Wednesday. However, it's a bit late and I honestly don't want to write a review today. However, I will write my review (it will be on The Muppet Show) on Saturday.
So, what am I going to talk about today? I don't actually know.
You may be wondering about the title. I stole that from Monty Python's Flying Circus. If you've seen the episode where that line is, then you knew that already. If you haven't, then you… Continue

Today's Song Tuesday if from the musical Seussical the Musical.
CAT IN THE HAT (spoken):
After all of those years being stuck on a page,
Did you ever imagine you'd see me on stage?
Now I'm here. There's no telling what may ensue.
No, there's no telling what. But I'll give you a clue.
Oh, the thinks you can think.
Oh, the thinks you can think, if you're willing to… Continue

For today's things that amuse me, I'm going to talk about one of my favorite singers.
Things That Amuse Me #10: Tom Chapin
Tom Chapin was the singer/songwriter that I grew up to. He's a folk singer and he writes most of the songs that he sings (he does occasionally sing songs written by his brother, Harry). I've always liked Tom Chapin, because he writes intelligent songs for kids. When he writes for kids, he doesn't look down on them for being… Continue

Given the fact that it's Sunday and I have absolutely nothing else to talk about, I'll just give you all a quick update.
I am now home for the summer. Twelfth Night went well. Yesterday I went to a grand total of four graduation parties which, although it was a tad exhausting, was also a good time because I got to see all these people that I haven't seen in awhile. On Friday, as I mentioned, I saw Cassie's production of The Phantom Tollbooth. It went really well and all the… Continue

Well, I gave a promise, so here is the continuation of my review on Glee (started Day 150). So, here is the adults of Glee.
SPOILERS: Yes, I will be talking about events from the season finale, so if you haven't seen it yet and don't want these spoilers to ruin anything, don't read on.
First, Will Schuester, the director of Glee. This is a character that's kind of hard not to like. He's done some stupid things in the past (randomly making out… Continue

It's time for another installment of that whole annoyance thing.
Things That Annoy Me #10: Bad Directors
I have no doubt that everyone, at some point, has dealt with a bad director. Whether it's for band, choir, or theatre, bad directors are everywhere. I've been fortunate in that most directors I have had have been good. Both of the choir directors I had from middle school to high school were good, the band director I have had since 5th grade is… Continue
