May, 2015 -- The Good Parts Version

Videos

Okay, this is not going to interest everyone, but I personally find it both hilarious and amazing.  It's from the Spike TV show Lip Sync Battle, and it's Dwayne Johnson not just lip syncing to the BeeGee's "Stayin' Alive," but doing a full-on, choreographed dance routine to it.  Warning:  it's a little silly and a lot sexy.  (Or maybe a lot silly and a little sexy?)  This vid should start right up with his number and skip Jimmy Fallon's Madonna song, if I set it up right.  What I like best about it is realizing how much time my big, muscly guy Dwayne Johnson had to have spent practicing that routine with the backup dancers, and how well he pulls the whole thing off :-D


And now for something completely different:  an amazing interview with Juliet and Hayley Mills in Australia, where they're appearing on stage together right now.  The first half is more serious, and the second half is quite funny, as they crack each other up several times.




Blogs


This is a Tumblr site, not a blog, but if you haven't checked out Awesome People Reading yet, then do so forthwith!  It's an amazing collection of pictures of, well, awesome people who are reading.  It gets updated every few days, and it has everyone from actors (classic Hollywood to modern) to authors to musicians to politicians -- it's amazing.  And addictive.

I found this post by Kelly-Anne very timely.  It's a quote from North and South about modesty, which I've just been trying to explain to my kids.

This excellent quote from J.K. Rowling, which I 100% agree with:

This shot of Dwayne Johnson on the set of Hercules, playing patty-cake with a 2-year-old :-D  (I swear I did not intentionally make this whole post Dwayne Johnson-themed, it just happened.)

And this bunch of comparison shots of my two favorite film versions of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson:

There you go!  Bunch of cool stuff I found online in May but didn't blog individually about because I was saving them for this post of reasons ;-)

  3. Jessica and DKoren -- I know, right? It seems he actually tweeted that photo himself, with a caption that said something like, "No matter who you are, when a 2-year-old asks to play patty-cake, you play."

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
