Whee

O mysterious magical person who gave me a DW paid account: thank you very much! This was kind of a crappy week so far, and you have improved it hugely, <3!

I clearly need to get back into the habit of posting, because while I do still read and comment on DW and LJ, I just don't talk much, I guess. If anyone has anything they would like me to talk about, now's a good time to comment. :-)

For now I will leave you with this video under the cut, which I've been playing on loop for a while now.



A French artist named Cee-Roo created this upbeat, boppy remix of Ella Fitzgerald performing "Sunshine of Your Love", and remixed a video to go with it:


And the original live performance by Ella is here:




I love Ella so much, you guys. This song, if you don't know it, is originally by Cream and IMO is your average droning, vaguely creepy stoner rock song, sung by guys who are much better at guitar playing than singing. And Ella takes that song and kicks it out of the park, over the roof and straight down the highway.

I would love to see you post about anything at all!

...not helpful, huh. Hmmm.

Perhaps you could expound upon this moment from the Granada version of Abbey Grange.

Elucidate the mysterious attractiveness of the vest + sash combination on the television hero (as per subtype Kirk-in-Mirror-Universe and subtype Iolaus).

Talk about your potential ideas for asking/offering for Ye Yuletides?

...Although you know, those Ella videos are awesome matter for an entry! You could simply point out more things you are enjoying/watching/reading/somethinging. I like glimpses into your delicious brains.

You could post about what you're reading, or what TV you're watching. Or you could post links to good vids, which is about the only way I find any these days!

Ella is the awesome-est. Her voice is like the warmest, most delicious chocolate that you could ever hear.

I'm just glad to read anything you want to talk about. \o/

I like the original song, but Ella's version is WOW!! :D Thanks for sharing that awesomeness.

While I'm here... I loved your Mystery Dance vid! That was so fun and cool.
