And here we are again. It is HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY. To recap for any newbies to this event: 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 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 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. Now, let's get this party started. Oh, and 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... Lastly, don't forget to turn off my music player at the bottom of the page. Sorry for the inconvenience.

One last thing, I might not blog tomorrow because I am embarking on a vacation, (what's that, you say? a vacation? yes.) but it will be a restful one and I'm taking my laptop. So, I will pick up with the Part 2 of the Dream on my next blog. Yes, there is a Part 2. How's that for a cliffhanger? Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

And, Lira, I am going to cheat and give you a clue about your footage so that you don't send me an email: Hustle.):


  1. I love how the camera guy kept panning to the audience- everyone was on their feet at the end! Amazing! Thank you so much for thinking of me when you think of that video! What an honor to be with the likes of them! <3

  2. who'd a thunk it...I didn't know you could do all that with a jump rope. I am lucky to get it to go round 20 times in a row.

  3. I know it totally wasn't meant for me but I couldn't resist watching the Ferris Bueller clip. What a great way to start my day! I love that movie and that is one of many highlights in it. Thanks for posting it. And I hope you have a lovely "vacation" day! :)

  4. Made me smile, made me misty eyed, made me remember to build on the good things and let go of the bad. You hit the nail on the head with this one! Love your insight, Robin. Thank you.

  5. LOL! I know exactly why you chose that one for me - thank you!

  6. Thanks Robin, I know it does look like I should be allowed to say, Why do I deserve this but I believe we draw most things to ourselves, they are just not always what we expect.

    One of the videos and song that resonates with me about that current situation is Mr. Brightside, by the Killers.

  7. I had to take a peek at each one Robin. I loved the movie Ferris The halftime show brought back memories of my cheerleader daughter. That was pretty amazing what they did with the jumpropes! Wow.

  8. Thanks Robin...I'm a great fan of Sally Field. She does have a point but so does Rob Lowe...not sure who I agree with most. Maybe I should see the film before I make up my mind.

    And yes, I get why you gave it to me...

  9. HOLY CRAP. (sorry, just finished the jump rope halftime video of EPIC AWESOME).

    Your video for me was PERFECT - I think you already know that I love, love, LOVE Buffy and the song was kick ass and matched the vid beautifully.

    How wonderful and thoughtful of you, Robin... you're fantastic. :)
