HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY

SURPRISE. Drum roll please. It is once again HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY. Yes, you read that correctly. HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY is back on Thursday.  Indeed, it looks like this might actually become a weekly event again. Who knew? Well, I had a feeling. Moving on... For those of you unfamiliar with the once again weekly HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY posts, I bet you're wondering what is going on. Well, peeps, let me give you the skinny on this event...

This is a weekly event landing typically on Thursdays. The best (or worst) part is that I am not going to explain why I chose "whatever" footage for each of you. If, you watch your footage and are scratching your head at the end, well that means I didn't do a very good job. However, all is not lost. You can email me at rarichards68@gmail.com and ask me what I was thinking when I chose that particular piece of footage off of youtube and connected it to you. And then I will tell you. Then I will start sending up prayers that I haven't offended the crap out of whoever is on the receiving end of that email....lol. Because, honestly, I will tell you right now... I admire all of you enormously so I really hope that doesn't happen.

Also, this is not an exclusive venture by any means. I hope that you will take the time to watch ALL of the footage because I don't pick bad footage:-) I also hope that you might check out the blog of the person I dedicated the footage to because they are pretty darn awesome. If you haven't figured this out yet... I pick the footage based on something that you've written or something that I've gleaned from your personality. Think on that for a while... If you are having trouble watching the entire video (meaning it is being cut off on one side), click on it a couple of times and it will take you straight over to youtube. If you click on the four squares at the bottom corner of the video, it will enlarge it to fill your screen. The escape key will bring it back to normal size. The back arrow will bring you back to my page.

Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

    Hey, thanks for the mention and the selection!

    I think that's probably only the second Sheryl Crow song I've ever heard. The only one I know is the one about "watching the sun come up over Santa Monica Boulevard" - which, by the way, I've done a number of times in my life.

    DiscConnected of the blogs 'DiscConnected' and 'Back In The USSR' is going to be jealous that you chose Sheryl Crow for ME, because he thinks she's really hot.

    Thanks again. (This is a cool idea. I'd steal it, but that would be unethical.)

    POSTSCRIPT: Incidentally, I definitely "got" the reference you were making with this particular song.

    1. HERE'S TO YOU isn't up your alley;) And it would be TOTALLY unethical...I am afraid you are just going to have continue to admire my brilliance on a weekly basis. All of this is a GIFT my blogging friend.

      And I had all the confidence in the world that you would "get" the reference I was making back to what you wrote. These HERE TO YOU posts are all about "connections." I am indicating that I am connecting in some way to what you wrote. Sometimes that connection is loose or even humorous. But, it is like a "yes" to what you said; you have been heard.

    1. I think most Fleetwood Mac songs are sad. The percussion on this song is amazing.

      The Grumpster is a fairly new follower to my blog and me to his. I hope he gets the "thought process" I had here. Did you? I know you follow his blog.

  6. Watching these videos always gives me new insights. So many times I've been told I look like Amber Tamblyn and now I think I finally just got it. I never watched Joan of Arcadia...

    1. Aha. I can see that. Not the hair, but the face.

      Well, I think I have watched it enough times for both of us!!! (I have it on DVD.) I still think it was one of the best shows made in the last 20 years... hence the early cancellation...

  7. Robin-

    I was bad enough when Lance Armstrong went and stole Sheryl Crow from me....because she and I really connected at that concert even though I was way out in the lawn seats!

    Now you come along, snatch her up and give her to McCarthy?!

    Can we add a little more salt to the wound?

    If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all!

  8. wow, and yet again I am surprised by Fleetwood Mac. And I can see where you're going with this song haha. by the way, they're planning some reunion tour, have you heard about this? :)

    1. I think you got limited doses of Fleetwood Mac. A lot of their best stuff, you just MISSED. :D

      I know that they are not one of YOUR favorite bands, but I really like them, so I would enjoy them in concert. I will have to look into the Tour. I would like that, especially if they can pull the entire band back together... that can be difficult. Breakups can be messy! Although they did get back together once before and I think it went pretty well, so...
