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.  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 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. My dragon goodness! 20 years of Kate? Will Alex survive so much excitement? :D I'm sure he'll have a problem of foggy screen at the very least, hahaha. The penguin is somehow familiar. I know I've seen that behavior somewhere. :D

  2. Fun post this week! Think I'll have to check out some of these bloggers. Always looking for an interesting read... so many have managed to drop out of blogger land lately.

  3. Very cool picks and the tickled penguin was cute :)

  4. Good morning, Robin!! Thank you for the acknowledgement!

    In my opinion, we are facing a global problem today that is as dangerous, if not more so, than what happened in the late 1930' and early to mid 1940's...

    I hope all is well in your part of the world!!


  5. I do so hope that was penguin laughter and not some cry of distress. Does anyone know if they like to be tickled?

  6. Al ~ I think that maybe he passed out and hit his head. Hence the lack of comment. Who do you call? Ghostbusters????

    Jasmine ~ People go through phases with blogging. I have found that every few months I have to actively search for new material.

    Mark ~ The picks were a little tougher this week (truth be told). I don't know if people weren't writing as much, or if I just had a tougher time connecting to something YouTubey, but it was one of THOSE weeks... hahahaha.

    Shoes ~ I feel it, too.

    LD ~ The penguin in the video is a little guy named Cookie at the Cincinnati Zoo. I don't know if all penguins enjoy being tickled, but apparently Cookie does. The Zookeepers had been trying to get it on tape for a while:)

  7. That was a fun medley and a great way to appreciate your fans.

    Be well, Robin.

  8. Oh my gosh! Two weeks in a row! Yes, whenever I hear this song it gets to me...because I know what I still have, and what some day will be gone. It really got to me this year, when we buried our little kitty in our current backyard. How horrible is this? I confess we put her in a plastic container...just in case, when the time comes, we really can't leave her behind!

    Thank you Robin, for being such a loyal reader of Middle Passages.

  9. Good picks, but I liked the penguin the best. How could anyone not love that little guy?

    Happy weekend!

  10. Great selections! I didn't expect them on a Thursday. You have a streak going.

  11. That was awesome! And I can forgive her appearances in Pearl Harbor and Van Helsing. Blonde's not her style though. Give me the long, wavy black hair.
    Thank you, Robin! Sorry I missed this yesterday. I missed a lot of posts this week.

  12. Robyn ~ Thursday is always a great day:)

    Liza ~ When you write the right stuff, I got the material! Seriously, when I read your Tear Down post, I had the video for it. That is how this feature works!

    Susan ~ I love that Tickle The Penguin video. Always makes me laugh.

    JJ ~ I would really like to keep it up. Every Thursday without fail!!!!

    Alex ~ Glad you liked it! I like the Underworld movies best, but that is just me...

  13. I scrolled right down to Supernatural to watch first, my favorite. I love Dean, Sam , and Castiel. Thanks for sharing these good videos.

  14. This is fun that you do this, I bet it makes the bloggers laugh. :)

  15. I remember that performance. I love this. Thanks you :)

  16. OK, I haven't seen or even heard of the movie "Supernatural" so now I want to see it just to find out what the heck is going on there. I'll take this as a movie recommendation and a compliment. Thanks! Sorry I missed this before.
