It just rained here for about 5 minutes, pretty hard, but right now the sun is out. Iowa weather, you gotta love it!
Most of this past weekend that I spent at my place was spent on YouTube, watching all sorts of videos. So this week, I'll share some with you, maybe one or two a day or every other day or something. I won't stop the normal posts, so you'll be able to get the side-splitting and sometimes introspective writing that you've come to know and love. I just wanted to share videos that I've come to really like with everyone else.
The first video is from the late 60's/early 70's, from the band Vanilla Fudge, and their song "You Keep Me Hanging On." These guys are so rad, the lead vocalist/keyboard player is really into it, the drummer is a stick-twirling machine, the guitarist has a sweet jacket and an even sweeter white-fro, and their bass player is just kind of ridiculous (I think he's got sort of an Alton Brown look going for some reason). They're all impeccable dressers. I really appreciate how much they put into their performance, just laying it all out on the line. Plus, the break-down at the end of the song is pretty epic. I dig it, and I hope you do too.
That's it for this video post. The next one will be a very special treat for Hawkeye fans, or for those of you who aren't yet Hawkeye fans but want to be, or for those who associate me with the Hawkeyes (I'm looking at you Lucy!) or just fans of really awesome stuff. So look forward to it!
