Video of the Day–Never Forget

For some reason, this did not post yesterday as it was scheduled to do so. http://youtu.be/98CxkS0vzB8 Today, as it is the third Monday in January, it is the day we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the role he played in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s. The song in the …

The Romance Reader Vlog #3

I swore I posted this the other day, but I guess the post didn’t go live.  In the third installment of the Vlog, I talk about the different books I’ve been reading lately and why none of them actually worked for me.  Mentioned are The First Love Cookie Club, which I reviewed the other day, and …

Video of the Day: The Movie That Defined The 1990’s

You have to hand it to Amy Heckerling; she managed to do what few directors did before or after–define two generations with two extremely successful movies.  In the 80’s, she made Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which is still one of my mom’s favorite movies, and in the 90’s she brought us Clueless, which is one of …

Video of the Day–Bryan Adams and Zorro Made 1995 Romantic

I was 8 years old during the summer of 1995 when this song came out and to say that summer sucked for my family would be an understatement.  The only thing that got me through that summer was music–I’ll Be There for You by the Rembrants, Roll to Me by Del Amitri, Barely Breathing by Duncan Sheik, Run-around …

Video of the Day–On Again, Off Again, and Finally On Again

Honestly, this was not the video I was going to post today, but while looking for that video, I came across this one, which is a compilation of the most important moments in the history of Ross and Rachel’s relationship on Friends. I don’t remember a time at which Friends wasn’t a part of my life, although …

Video of the Day: A Landslide Into Love

Glee has been one of my favorite shows since the very beginning (I still can’t believe I couldn’t pay attention to the pilot when it originally aired because I was writing my final paper for a Russian Politics class–I got an A), and while it has gone a bit downhill since a lot of the …

Video of the Day–A Mouse and a Love Song

Today’s video is inspired by my own writing.  I have decided to do some work on one of my projects today and this song fits perfectly.  My characters, a time traveler from the 21st century and an English nobleman from the 19th, will eventually be separated by 150 years and the only comfort they can …

Video of the Day–Dukes and Clowns Are the Same Thing, Right?

I went to my local library today (you don’t want to know how much I wanted to kill them when I got home) and picked up Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right by Kieran Kramer.  I’m a bit of a classic rock nut, so the title alone made me pick it up. …

Video of the Day–Sometimes All It Takes Is One Kiss

I know I haven’t posted anything is a week, but things have been a little bit crazy here since late last Thursday night and then I was working on my novel.  As a matter of fact, I have only read 1.5 books since last Thursday (the first two books in the Smythe-Smith Quartet by Julia …

Video of the Day–August 8th

I first saw RENT on Broadway two days before I graduated high school back in 2004–my dad took me to see it as a graduation present (my chorus performed Seasons of Love outside of Lincoln Center the month previously).  Your Eyes struck me as hauntingly beautiful. For those that have never seen the show, Roger meets Mimi …
