See for yourself

My blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds of late have been filled with praise for The Bridges of Madison County, which ended its too-short Broadway run this past Sunday.

I was fortunate enough to see the show twice, including its final performance.  But for those of you who were not able to attend — and perhaps have smiled indulgently at my near-obsessive behavior — I wanted to give you a taste of the quality performance I enjoyed.

Here’s Steven Pasquale performing “It All Fades Away” for the studio recording. (The note at 3:20 literally fills  your head during the live performance.)

We’re really nice

While this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live with guest host Charlize Theron won’t go on any “Best of” lists, there was one Digital Short that is getting a lot of attention.

SNLTourists

 

In “Tourists,” SNL cast members (including Theron) dressed up as — you got it — tourists and pranked the good people of New York City with indecipherable questions, unknown accents, picture taking confusion and general craziness.

It was very funny.

And I want to point out — despite all the weirdness that SNL threw at them, every New Yorker really tried to help them out.

Points for us!

Your moment of zen

Big Blue Gratitude

At the beginning of March, I never would have dreamed that the 2014 NCAA tournament would be so much fun (or that my bracket — with my alma mater Kentucky in the finals — would be so highly accurate).

All those nail-biter games with Harrison’s incredible last-second shots (joined together in this composite video below)!

I am so proud of what this Kentucky Wildcats team has accomplished –

Thanks for the memories, guys!

Battle of the sexes

I auditioned for a web video today.
cashierThe role was “angry cashier.”

It was a real character part…and lots of fun to do.

The casting director was also seeing men for another role. But they didn’t get a script to review like me. Instead, they were simply told as they entered the waiting area:

Remove your shirt.

I have never been so happy to be a woman!

Grrrowll!

Look ESPN — the UK ‘kitty kats’ are in the big dance!

Show ‘em what ya got!

Fantastic Mr. Reece

My friend Caroline is one of the most creative people I know.  So it’s no surprise that her kids are doing amazing things.

Nick, a filmmaker, has his mom’s skewed sense of humor…which translates into some pretty fun stuff on screen.

The recent, recurring snowy weather inspired his latest short, “Winter Clothing.”

Wes Anderson would be proud.

Baby boy dance party

I loved the musical sketch “Boy Dance Party” when it aired on Saturday Night Live way back in October.  Bruce Willis and all the guys dancing around the living room while the girls were away?

Instant classic.

If possible, it has been made even better with the addition of a very enthusiastic toddler.

His parents won’t let people embed the video, but you can still enjoy it on Youtube.

(I like the kid way better than them.)

Payback’s a bitch

If you were a geek in high school like me — and perhaps still are one today? — this PSA by Internet film creater Jason Headley will definitely make you laugh…

In victory.

If you were one of the popular kids, well — this one’s for you.
