2007 Year End round-ups

Things and things that I haven't talked about (maybe?) -

- Esra and I are going to Istanbul.. Jan 13 - 23rd. very exciting. her mom's side of the family lives there and.. as her dad, mom and brother (and cousins) will be joining us, and as Esra and family have planned an 'engagement dinner' of sorts at Fenerbah├že Club

- Many pictures of Istanbul to come... ala the kick-arse camera we bought with christmas money (for 1/2 the amazon price, wooo!)

- I've worked on the following since I last told ya what I've worked on: Macy's, Macy's, Macy's, Dave's Bridal and, it still makes me laugh: Honey Bunches of Oats.
the Macy's were 2 commercials and 1 print ad, the Dave's Bridal was a commercial. Honey Bunches of Oats was a music video 'homage', let's say, to Flight of the Conchords and/or Tenacious D and/or the SNL Digital Shorts music video spoofs. The 'song' was "Breakfast in Bed" complete with the lines "girl, I love it when you masticate" and (referring to their bowls of cereal) "wanna make sure I dont finish before you". ya. weird to watch, for sure. mostly funny tho. And being the "hey, Kory normally does Art Dept PA work" guy, I got 'borrowed' by the Art Director often and put to much use building walls (it's someone surprising how rewarding it is to turn a box of screws and some 2x4's into solid walls in under 5 minutes). Long hours though.. 17 on one of the 3 days, 15 on another.

- Then it was my birthday, yeayyy. We went here. Also, I know it goes without saying but, it was Warren Sapp's birthday too.

- Speaking of the Raiders... I will respectfully not speak of the Raiders except to say that they are still the best team ever.  by ever, I mean next year.

Song of the Week

A true stick-in-the-header, for sure:

hmmm.... interesting... under youtube's "related" videos shows... what i do believe is actually the original version a cover of heartbeats.. by Jose Gonzales,  annnnd... now having (re)seen the video, i do remember clips of the bouncey balls bouncing down those SF hills.  check it out..  talk about MUST SEE videos... yeesh.

Song(s) of the week - making up for lost time

I still have a few rumbling around in the old noggin that need sharing, for Surely:

   (the video is a must for this one.. tis great, from 2:15 on needs to be seen)

this one isn't stuck in my head, but as far as videos go... this oughta be seen too

not really a stuck-in-the-head song either but the video is freakin beautiful; great concept.

Song of the Week

in the interest of writing more than I have lately (ie. none), I'm going to start posting links to songs that get undislodgeably stuck in my head.  Until they get dislodged by the next song to stick in my head, that is.  if you dont 'get it' the first go-round, give it another listen.  there's gotta be a reason I'm groovin' on it, eh?

And so... this week's song is:   April March - Chick Habit


(from the credits for Death Proof.  also from the movie But I'm A Cheerleader)
