CHROMEO recently released their newest video – Old 45’s. This is, in my opinion, the best song off their new album WHITE WOMEN. With its smooth 80’s vibe and funky lyrics, it is sure to please, so I thought I would share it with you!
Below is the video for Old 45’s, which also features a cameo from Mr. Napoleon Dynamite himself, Jon Heder.
Just for fun, here is a pic of Dave 1 and I from their show in 2010:
This was taken as Dave 1 & I poked fun at my Husband Brent and he called Brent “Honey”
Be sure to check out the rest of their videos and albums and feel free to let me know what you think of the video!
After many requests for another collection of Eye Candy & the fact that it was one of my most popular and shared blog posts last year, I present you with Part 2!
So, get ready to drool, hug your computer & swoon, again!
♥ ZAC EFRON ♥
His rise to fame was the movie Hairspray, which is where I first saw him. Since then I have enjoyed watching him charm and impress the ladies in hits like 17 Again and The Lucky One. His lastest flick The Paperboy, gives us all a glimpse of his mature side, with plenty of scenes in his underwear!
♥ RYAN REYNOLDS ♥
This Canadian heartthrob has been impressing us with his chiseled good looks since Two Guys & A Girl. With his ridiculously toned physique and charismatic appeal, he has made us laugh in hits like The Proposal & Just Friends. Plus who could forget his sexy yet disturbing role in The Amityville Horror?
♥ JAMES MARSDEN ♥
We imagined him as our Prince in Entangled and enjoyed watching him save the planet as Cyclops in X-Men. We felt bad for him in The Notebook and laughed at his hilarious role in Sex Drive. We all want to be his Coquette, the answer to his love’s duet!
♥ ADAM LEVINE ♥
He seduces us with his voice, singing for Maroon 5 and has produced one of the most addictive songs ever – Moves Like Jagger. With his sheer sexiness and alluring confidence, we can’t help but want to put the moves on him!
♥ TIMOTHY OLYPHANT ♥
It’s hard to believe this Father of three is 44 years old. We first spotted him in The First Wives Club. He has since risen to fame and starred in hits like Rock Star and Hitman and played the lead on the series Deadwood. He can save us from the Crazies anytime!
♥ Alex Pettyfer ♥
Last summer we were treated to a very private side of him in the blockbuster Magic Mike. Who knew he could move like that?! We have since enjoyed watching him in I Am Number Four and In Time. Though new to the movie scene, we look forward to seeing “more” of him!
♥ PRINCE HARRY ♥
He made us giggle when he was photographed naked playing strip poker. This cute and usually reserved Prince has a bit of a naughty side. Perhaps we should dub him Dirty Harry!
♥ JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ♥
In the 90’s, fans walls were plastered with posters of JT from ‘N Sync. Today he is bigger than ever. With hits like Cry Me a River, Rock Your Body & Suit & Tie we adore and thank him for bringing Sexy Back.
♥ BEN AFFLECK ♥
After being snubbed for Best Director, we cheered for him when he won Best Picture at this years Academy Awards. A Husband, Father, Actor, Director, Writer & Producer, we’d leave on a jet plane to see him any day ’cause we “don’t want to miss a thing.”
♥ PAUL WALKER ♥
We’ve seen this hunky bad boy in The Fast & The Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and the upcoming Fast & Furious 6 due in theaters this year. Perhaps we will race to the theaters if # 7 comes out. I can only imagine what that title will be.
♥ DAVID BECKHAM ♥
Ok, I know I included him in Part 1 but have you seen his new line of Bodywear for Men at H&M? I actually ran out and got these three types for Brent (insert chuckle). And have you seen his newest commercial for them? Hotter than Hot!!!
Well there you have it, the much anticipated Part 2. Subscribe to receive updates or follow my blog as I will be posting the next addition shortly, with an interesting twist, and be sure to vote on your favorite. I know who I’m voting for!
Nursing School sure has been keeping me busy! This week I am on Reading Week, so I am taking advantage of my free time visiting family & friends and getting all upcoming assignments and exam studying done. With all the pressures of school and life, it has been hard to relax and enjoy things.
I thought I would share a great video of a kid enjoying his time doing dishes. He saw the brighter side of his “chore” and made it fun – with Michael Jackson! This is how life should be, finding joy in the little things.
I am currently finishing up readings and homework for class tomorrow. Week 3 of school almost done! I just took a much needed break and glanced out my apartment window to see the city lights and winter sky.
It sure is dark.
Before I head back to homework, I thought I would share a favorite song of mine I just listened to: Holy Ghost! – It Gets Dark.
The video I am sharing with you is actually a fan-made video (the band hasn’t posted one yet) and is comprised of footage from an 80’s Halloween Masquerade. I have been to many parties but my costumes aren’t quite as exciting (or strange) as some of the costumes in the video. Take a look and be sure to comment below with thoughts.
After a long and busy day at work, I was excited to come home, kick off my shoes and relax with Brent.
Saturday Night. Remember that song? It was my favorite song of 1994. Well, here is a reminder:
Brent is currently enjoying Madden on our PS3, while I sit here posting a blog. This is how I picture him and Madden:
While he is busy playing his game, you can often find me sitting in front of my laptop with my headphones on. My big bassy ones. I cannot write without music on. Currently playing: Hot Mess by Chromeo. Ah Chromeo, our favorite band! We met them at their concert in 2010. Here we are with Dave 1:
I am so excited at this point!
Look at Brents Grin!
I also made my famous Cheese Ball as a snack tonight. I never have leftovers after a party. Ask our friend Richard! I promise I will post the recipe shortly!
I think I am going to have a shower, put on some fresh PJs and watch a movie.
One last clip for you that I know you will enjoy (caution, does contain some adult language):
With our birthdays this week and exciting life changes, the song Something Good Can Work – Two Door Cinema Club (The Twelves Remix) has been playing in my head all day. Feels uplifting, so I thought I would share.
My Husband and I have a strong love for Music. We often find ourselves relaxing on a day off with headphones and a splitter jack exploring new songs and bands.
Our first concert together was at a little venue in Toronto in 2010. We went to see our favourite band at the time, CHROMEO. An electrofunk duo from Quebec who use synthesizers and have a penchant for the 80’s. Their music is pure with catchy lyrics and a retro feeling.
A few years back while practically everyone was listening to the top 40, I was singing along to the likes of Cut Copy, Holy Ghost!, MGMT, Justice and of course CHROMEO. I was also a huge fan of Kavinsky and the song Nightcall, before it was made famous in the movie “Drive”.
Some call my taste in music questionable, but then, can’t that be said about everyone? We all have our own taste and mine happens to not involve Justin Bieber. Don’t get me wrong, I will occasionally listen to the odd Top 40 pick, but I would rather listen to those who actually write their own music and know how to play an instrument.
I remember as a kid, falling in love with a song on MuchMusic and then begging my parents to take me to the music store so I could purchase the cassette or CD of the band or singer, just so I could have that song. In those days there were no mp3 players. Hell there wasn’t even downloading or the internet.
It is so easy now to fall in love with a song and stream it to an iPod or computer only to move on to something else. With the help of the internet and social media sites it is also easy to see videos and listen to songs under the recommendation of a friend. I can’t think of anyone who has even purchased a CD recently.
I recently acquired a record player and have been able to track down my favourite bands that are now putting out LP’s. Isn’t that much hotter than owning an mp3?
Here are 15 of my favourite songs, a few were played at our Wedding last year. My husband often finds me quietly dancing and singing to these while baking or cleaning the house.
