The Playlist

Published September 26, 2015 by Malia

One thing about our wedding that makes me super happy, is the fact that multiple people have told us how much fun they thought it was.  I know I may be biased, but I think they’re right.  Probably one of my favorite things from our wedding is the playlist.

Back when we first started dating, one thing we would do is put YouTube on the Chromecast, and we’d both keep adding videos to the stream.  It made for many hours of inexpensive entertainment.  Since we weren’t having a dance at the wedding, the boy had the idea of putting together a giant YouTube playlist that would run in the background throughout the reception.  It’s filled with nerd music, parodies, and some pretty random weirdness.  It’s also a pretty good look at what entertains the two of us.  So, whether you were at the wedding and confused by the quiet YouTube videos, or just wanting to watch an eccentric stream of videos, I’m going to share the playlist with all of you!

The Weird Things That Make Me Smile

Published January 29, 2014 by Malia

I’m kind of tired tonight, and it’s been a boring few days.  So, in lieu of actually writing, I’m going to share a number of things that never cease to make me smile.  Hopefully, if you’re feeling down, something I put up tonight will help raise your spirits.

First up, a music video that, to this day, I cannot explain what the people who put it together were thinking. The overall product is so delightfully bad, I can’t help but giggle.  (It’s kind of a shame it’s so bad, because David Hasselhoff actually has a pretty good voice.)

Still with me?  I didn’t scare you off?  Yay!

Next up, I give you the wonderful Tom Hiddleston hanging out with Cookie Monster…

Now, to delve into my favorites from imgur.

The importance of Elvish…

Spot the ghost:

This reminds me of the 1960’s Batman show, cause Batman always had words of advice for the youth about how to do things safely.  Plus, the comment is the most fantastic thing ever.

 

How I feel when I go to the art museum and weird, modern art is on display…

If you still need cheering up, here’s some random stuff that I’ve found on Pinterest that’s made me grin.

Spoilers for the next season of Game of Thrones

More Batman humor:

 

Normal people vs. Supernatural

It’s would’ve been shorter…

Poor Molly, she can’t win…

Proof that Sherlock is educational…

On to Star Wars

I’m not a Conan fan, but this is pretty fantastic:

Kind of self-explanatory:

A little Shakespeare…

Downton meets Austen:

 

Some LOTR

Indeed, where was Gondor?

I can’t be the only who sings this when I read it…

More Hobbit than LOTR:

Should I ever get married, and the groom is willing, this will happen…

 

 

I think I’ll wrap up with some Doctor Who.

 

 

 

 

A Book List for Mila, Part 1

Published November 30, 2013 by Malia

So, I’ve been promising my friend Mila that I would compile a list of book recommendations for her.  I thought it would be fun to share the list with others as well.  By no means is this a complete list (or a long one, for that matter), but I’ve got to start somewhere.  Also, I’m not including some books that I know she has already read (like Lord of the Rings).  

Redwall

Okay, stick with me, because by far this is going to be the silliest sounding book series I list.  This series follows the adventures of several different animals living in a medieval world.  The stories are brilliant and heartbreaking.

Discworld

There are 40 books, so far, in this series.  The books cover everything from technology to insurance.  A very humorous take on serious fantasy novels.

The Wheel of Time

There are 14 books in this series, and it’s a very long, very detailed story.  I’ll be honest, I’ve not gotten very far in this book series.  However, what I’ve read has been quite excellent, and everyone I know who has finished it has really liked it.

A Song of Ice and Fire

This is a fantastic series, but be prepared to have your heart broken.  Don’t get attached to characters, because it’s likely they won’t survive.  A word of caution, this series doesn’t shy away from describing anything.  Definitely not child friendly.

-Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson’s Peter Pan Series

Initially, I didn’t want to read these books, because much as I love Dave Barry, I didn’t think the overall idea of an update to a classic story was a good idea.  I was wrong.  If anything, these books have made me love the original even more.

Okay, that does it for this week’s list.  I’m thinking I’ll make this a weekly thing, until I have shared all the books & series that I can come up with.
