It is that day again. What day is that you ask? How can you have forgotten? Drum roll please. It is HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY, of course! The very best day of the blogging week. It is the precursor to the best day of the work week.

I notice that I actually have some newbies for this event. How exciting! Well, here is what is going down. This is a weekly 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. 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. Of course, you will have to deal with this all over again: Lastly, don't forget to turn off my music player at the bottom of the page. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  1. You always seem to put such an effort into these! They are fun to read, watch, and listen to...

    I hope all is well for you!


  2. Thanks Robin. These are always a treat! I got a big lump in my throat on the "Here's to You for Yellow Rose of Texas." Oh, and by the way...James Taylor is one of my favorites...

  3. Yeah - I hate the police but I love Placebo :)

  4. I can't say enough about how amazing your picks are this week. Robin, you absolutely nailed it. I ADORE 500 Days of Summer and think it's an incredible movie about letting go of what you think you want so you can be ready for what you need (the last line of the movie kills me, when the girl introduces herself.) And my Nickelback video actually made me tear and made me that much confident in my Big Idea - and of course, OF COURSE, you picked my favorite Joan of Arcadia moment ever (her brother and dad building the boat together.)

    You are so fully awesome, girl.

  9. Holy Crikey, I made 'Here's To You Thursday'! When my video first started I was thinking of how much the phrase: 'Are we there yet?' says it all for me right now. Then you really got me with the unexpected actor in it and how that relates to my '3rd Power' this week. Reminds me of the possibilities that exist that you never see coming. Thank you for thinking of me.

  10. Robin: Great blog! I'm glad Java featured you this week. I would love to follow along. Thanks.
