Music Video Mondays

Welcome back my friends! In this week's MVM, we have a recently released song that will make your toes tap and your head bop! In a recent collaboration, the band Gym Class Heroes teamed up with Adam Levine of the band Maroon 5 to produce "Stereo Hearts". The song combines rap with pop, and blends it together in a nice, melodic sound. This is the first collaboration between the Gym Class Heroes & Adam Levine (I believe), but I hope they do some other work together again!

For those that don't know, Gym Class Heroes is an American hip hop band from Geneva, New York, that formed in 1997. They are most known for their hit song "Cupid's Chokehold", which reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

So, enjoy this week's Music Video Monday!

Wow, what's that old expression? "Time flies when you are having fun"? I think it should just be changed to "Time Flies". It's more realistic that way, don'tcha think?

Anywhoo, I have decided that some things (creatively) need to change, and one of them is this blog. I'm bummed that I haven't been blogging, and honest apologies on that! Like I have always said, it's not about content. I have more stuff lined up on here in prep stage than probably any other blog I can think of. No, it's more about inspiration. I just haven't been inspired to write anything witty, or just plain good enough to write. I don't know what happened, or how it happened, but all of a sudden, I'm inspired again! It's funny how that works, huh?

Over the past couple of days (and in the moments of inspiration), I was thinking of what changes I want to make (in terms of the direction of this blog), and this is what I have come up with:

1. I need to change the look of the blog, back to the original look; back to it's "roots"; when I thought it looked cool, and I liked looking and reading what (little) I wrote.

2. I need to update the links - not that anything is wrong with them, per se, but there are a few more out there that I want to share. Some are cool, some are interesting, and some have had a subtle part in helping me get inspired about blogging (and being creative as well) again.

3. I need to do a better job of updating my blog. If this were a business, I would have been out of business a long time ago! I need to treat it seriously, even though it is a passion, or hobby, if you will.

4. I am thinking about starting up a couple of different blogs, one in particular, that just has me writing my opinions on certain topics. Now, you are probably saying, "just do that here", and yeah, I could, but I'm thinking it takes away from the "coolness" that is this blog. Over the past few years, this blog (I believe) has taken on it's own identity, and to try to cram something in there that doesn't seem natural, just doesn't seem right.

Now, I know 1 & 2 are doable, I could do those in my sleep. It's going to difficult for numbers 3 & 4, for a variety of reasons; but lately, I have been really chommping at the bit to do this! My creative juices are flowing, and I feel really rejuvinated creatively. I want to see what happens! Will the lazy side of me prevail, or will the amount of creative rejuvination I have been feeling lately prevail? Let's see, shall we???? My new tag line is going to be..."NO PROMISES, ONLY SURPRISES".

Lata... 4 now!
