Surprise! Here's To You is back on Thursday (this week). If you were paying attention, there wasn't a post last week. I am hanging tough with my resolution to spend more time on my novel and less time on blogger and other social media. So far, so good! Anyway, let's get down to it. Oh... and don't forget to come back tomorrow for Battle of the Bands!
you don't know what this HERE'S TO YOU stuff is about, let me explain.
This used to be a weekly event landing typically on Thursdays. When I
read your blogs or you say something in the comments that sparks my
imagination (or I hear something and I think of you), chances are good I
will click over to YouTube to find footage for you. In the old days you
wouldn't have to reach back in your memory bank farther than one week.
Now... all bets are off. It could be several weeks ago.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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!!!!
