Weekend Music: Oo De Lally!

If you are looking for Melissa’s Arrow review, scroll down. I am monkeying around with the schedule again, as I am wont to do.

I heard this song on a tv commercial a few days ago. Had no idea it was written by Roger Miller. Found this cover. Dude has a smooth voice, and he knows his banjo. The visual part is perfectly adequate, but a little fuzzy and the lighting is not the best. In other words, “artistic.” I like.

Stuff:

  • I’m hosting the #WeekendCoffeeShare this week, so my coffee post will be at the Monster rather than my own blog.
  • My #1000Speak post is done and in the queue at Just Gene’O. Since I am not doing a coffee post there this week, I’ll treat you to an excerpt tomorrow instead 😀 (Tell me I’m not good!)
  • Feminist Friday is happening at The Lobster Dance, like, now.
  • I will see you for #SundayBlogShare unless a big emergency happens.
  • There will be Tolkien at the Monster on Monday, written by me!!

Happy Weekend!

Important Info and A Weekly Preview

The A to Z list is live. We’re #96. Use this link to register. Official announcement on Thursday.

According to this post, registration for the Blogging A to Z April Challenge opens tomorrow. I do not know what hour of the day the list goes live. If you have already decided to take the plunge, keep your eye on the it and get in as early as you can.

This is my personal surivor badge. Sourcerer needs one of these.

Our schedule is here and every day is taken. We will not announce the actual topics until it’s time for the reveal. You’ll notice V is reserved for a mystery blogger and Y is “taken care of.” Those letters will remain as-is until reveal day. I will have an official announcement later this week once I register and see where we land on the list.

Here’s the preview for this week. I won’t do these every week, but we are still in a state of transition, and we have a couple of posts coming this week that are a little out-of-the-ordinary. You’ll not want to miss either.

  • Monday – A guest post on Star Wars and Fandom from the incomparable Natacha Guyot.
  • Tuesday – David brings you some thoughts on Agents of Shield, since there was no Agent Carter last week. [Edited, because we just realized this a few minutes ago. We are some Hulu- and on-demand-watching geeks.]
  • Wednesday – The first of a series on the Planescape: Torment video game from Will.
  • Thursday – The official A to Z Announcement.
  • Friday – Melissa blogs this week’s episode of Arrow.
  • Saturday – Weekend Music.
Arrr, Mateys!

Arrrr!

The first round of Feminist Friday discussions starts this week at Part Time Monster. The post is written and the spring schedule is here.

Next week, we kick off a seven-part series from Rose B. Fischer on a couple of animated series most of you are sure to remember. Rose’s series will run twice a month.

See you later for #SundayBlogShare on Twitter!

Not Everyone Was Born to Be a King . . . But EVERYONE Can Raise a Glass and Sing!

This is one of Diana’s anthems. I post it from time to time to make her smile. Also, to make a philosophical point in a humorous way. It has the added bonus of dropping an F-bomb on the front page of a blog that is notoriously conservative where the publishing of profanity is concerned. And it is truly the only eulogy I need.

Weekend Music: Ah-Ha!

Video

A-Ha!

This was quite a striking video back in the day, when MTV was THE music source and if you didn’t have cable yet, you just had to stay up late and tune into Friday Night Videos. It tells a story, and that story involves a comic. It’s obviously worthy of sharing here. I passed over The Dream Academy and Primitive Radio Gods in favor of this one. Enjoy!

If you’re in the mood to talk about some gender inequality this weekend, head on over to Drifting Through My Open Mind and chime in on the thread.
