Today is the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness that you contributed to blogland this week. Yep, 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.

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.

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

  1. Robin: This is a great idea. You are amazing!

  2. Um. Yes and more yes. Some of my favorite Spike moments were in my video (including him fixing up her hands after she busted through her coffin, and Spike's total breakdown upon seeing her dead body - kills me every time) and I did some serious butt shaking to the Gilmore Girls video too. God I miss that show.

    Great job, Robin! You always pick such wonderful videos for everyone :)

    I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  3. great song choices..that one for me gave me cold chills and I know you know why!!!
    Hey go check out my blog today i have something special waiting for you and will have my letter up in a little while...

  4. Oh Robin. I'm late today, and haven't had time to read all the tributes...but I love the Gilmore clip. You know I do. I don't really live in Stars Hollow...I just pretend to...but I love the relationship with Rory and Lorelai and definately am trying to emulate that. Now, on to another topic...guess what quote my daughter ended up using for her yearbook? The one from your blog yesterday: "There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say: 'Watch me.'" Author unknown. Robin, THANKS!!!

  5. Wow. Liza, that is so cool. I didn't know that your daughter read my blog. Or maybe you shared just that quote. Whatever. Anyway, it is always amazing that anything that you throw out into the universe touches someone and gets immortalized in some way. Anyway, it is awesome to be the vehicle that found that just the right thing to sum up how your daughter feels RIGHT NOW about where she is in her life journey. Thanks for sharing. And I am so glad you loved your GG footage!!!!

  6. Oh, I just love Thursdays with you, Robin, even when I don't get here 'til Friday ... :)

  7. Hi, I'm over from FF40, glad I found your blog. I rolled over laughing from you new button, its great! I look forward to learning more about you.

  8. I can't not get enough of that Eminem song!

  9. thanks for dropping by "Serendipitous..." and commenting.. I especially like Mellencamp and have seen this video before, but it was fun this morning. I had never noticed before that he was playing a "blond" J-50 Gibson guitar. Identical to the one in my closet. I think I will "tune" it up this weekend. Thanks, Glenn

  10. What a fun collection of videos! I'm popping in from the Friday Follow.


  11. YOU yes YOU! Are my showcase blog today.. Come check yourself out! :)

  12. Can I tell you how much I LOVE Felicity?! I'm buying the series a season at a time and I'm currently watching season 3. I love that show! It's perfect for Fall, for some reason unknown to me, and I try to watch the series every fall. Love it. :)

  13. I thought I commented but I suppose I didn't.....sorry about that...not sure where my mind has been?...Lovely post, lovely video's and I love the one you dedicated to me...You're wonderful my friend...(thanks for the nudge)

  14. Sorry I didn't get a chance to read your amazing Daily dose until tonight....which is now tomorrow...or anyway the 30th to be exact. thank you Robin for thinking of me, for chosing this song, for being supportive and for just being Robin. My friend.

    Carol-the gardener

  15. Thank you, Robin, for being such a dear friend when I don't even deserve it. Things just keep getting worse over here, seriously.

    And thank you for the Seinfeld video clip! How perfect was that? I've got to tell you, I'm having horrible BlackBerry withdrawals and I was at lunch the other day with three women who had them and not only was I jealous but they were all staring at their blinking red lights and ignoring everyone at the table. Oy.
