I got this from Pat over at A Blog about Things and found it rather entertaining. So will you. Or stabbing will occur.

Clip of the Day - Mildly SFW

A little strange, but, if you go to the original youtube site, it will explain everything. Hilariously funny.

Catching up, demi-blog style

So, I've been perhaps the worst blogger of all time. The last time I posted something of note that wasn't a video was July 13... [blog fail]

Anyway. Instead of retroactively writing blogs about the past, I'm just going to give you a nice set of demi-blogges about things that have happened from then to now and then be a good blogger and post on a regular basis, instead of having another one of these posts...

Things that have happened since I have last blogged:
  • I went to Minneapolis for a week to have a lot of fun with friends I met when I was in Italy in 2007. Lots of fun ensued, including a viewing of Harry Potter 6 after having quite a few cocktails...Like 4 STRONG martinis. Other highlights included going to the beach (yes, they do, in fact have beaches within the city limits) & running into people I knew from SLC that now live in the Twin Cities.
  • I drove down to Tucson with the Boif to drop him and his mom off at the U of Arizona (working on his Masters, she, her DMA) with the requisite stop in Vegas. Possibly one of the only times that gay folks have stayed at the Hooters Casino & Resort. Despite the reputation, the hotel was nice, the food was good, and the pools were wonderful. It certainly is a sign of addiction when you make it your goal to get to St. George in less than 4 hours because that's when the Starbucks closes. We then rushed to get to Vegas in less 2 hours, but very clearly going the speed limit, officer, because I had never seen the Bellagio dancing water live before, and we would be leaving before the 'shows' start the next day. And Boif + mom thought it important for me, seeing as how I love spectacle. Totally wonderful. Glad that when we were there when they were not playing Time to say goodbye; partially because I'm not a large fan of it in general, but it is Sarah Brightman singing. Just like Anna Netrebko, not a large fan. That said, I do like Anna much more than Sarah.
  • I have been in the chorus of Utah Opera's productions of Macbeth & Carmen (Italian girl in Algiers is coming up in March though). These three shows have been wonderful to be in, as they have given me the opportunity to meet a lot of fun people(chorus and principals), get paid to do something I'm going to school for *concept*, and just have a lot of fun in general. Despite the obvious, it makes me feel like I am a "professional" singer, but not in chorus, if that makes sense. I think that Macbeth was the most informative, and network building of the shows, Carmen the most fun off stage and I believe that Italian girl will be the most fun on stage, seeing as how staging rehearsals are going.
From now on, I promise to keep all of my readers updated much more. Henceforth and all that jazz.

Ciao belli!

I am in the planning stages of starting a new [classical music] concert series here in Salt Lake. Unfortunately, I cannot come up with a name for said series that I am really in love with, which is why I have asked you here...

  1. Location: Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA)
  2. Day/Time: Sunday afternoons (not every one though)
  3. Usual performers: advanced students/groups at the University of Utah, former students beginning a career, or other professionals/groups in the area
  4. Usual programming: heavily classical, but also, possibly 1 jazz concert a season
Ideally, this name would incorporate the fact that the series is at an art museum and that it is a classical music/jazz series.

Clip of the Day

I got this from Jenny: The Bloggess from her Good Mom/Bad Mom Blog and just had to share it with you. It has a good message, and is rather entertaining when you look at the comments below it...such as:

I'm wondering where the follow up video is. You know, the one that says, "don't take acid when your family is around. You'll start acting like you're driving a car and it'll really freak them out."

Clip of the Day

I know that I've been a bad blogger, and I am trying to start again, but things have been a little hectic around here. All will be revealed in a later post. Anywho...

A hilarious clip from Ms. Joyce DiDonato herself.
