I've Got My Angel Now

I’m back, two days in a row and blogging! It’s as if it’s 2003 all over again, and I’m blogging everyday.

Ha, not really.

I came by to drop off a video, Beyonce’s “Halo.”

I can’t explain why, but this is my jam of the moment. Yes, I have had her album since it leaked. Yes, I’ve seen the video before. For some reason, this week is the WEEK me and ‘Halo’ fall in love. Perhaps I am liking love songs again. I’m a lover of love songs, but for some reason, in the past 8 months or so I haven’t been my usual love song loving self. ‘Halo’ isn’t even the bomb love song, but it works for now.

Enjoy the video starring Bey and Michael Ealy:

Did I mention the time I saw Michael Ealy in public? I was at one of my dad’s favorite breakfast spots in LA, on La Brea near Pico (whatchoo know ’bout LaBrea and Pico?) and somehow someway my dad nodded over my shoulder pointing out Michael. I peeked through the bushes…and gasped. Outloud. My dad quickly warned me NOT to embarrass him. I didn’t, but the gasp really was uncontrollable, even I surprised myself. I didn’t say anything to him, but just admired how absolutely NORMAL he looked (in the debonair Hollywood actor kind of way). Yeah, I was 23 and it was my first week in LA at the time. Once I saw Tootie from “The Facts of Life” shopping with me in Target, I got over the star struck action of LA.

P.S. As I went searching for this video on YouTube, I noticed Beyonce has disabled embedding of her YouTube videos. What kind of wack social media strategy is this about? Sounds like some lawyers brokered that deal or something.

Kanye Brain Break

I’m still busy trying to graduate, and my social media life is deteriorating. I have no idea what’s going on in webgeekland. I have a million feeds to go through. My FriendFeed is barely hanging on.

I’ll get over it.

While I was able to spend five minutes surfing the Internets, I found the video below of Kanye West, posted to his Vimeo account. Kanye and Jonah Hill are playing a (hilarious) game of Connect 4:

Connect 4 – Jonah Hill vs. Kanye from kwest on Vimeo.

Four Quick Thoughts:

  • I love seeing Kanye on Vimeo. Not only do they have better quality video but it’s slightly more nerd chic than YouTube.
  • I wish he had video of the time Beyonce beat him 9 times in a row.
  • I like that this was an edited video of a somewhat spontaneous event. Better than live video that drags on and overly produced/scripted video. Fun.
  • I need that Yeezy Lollipop Remix in my life, like yesterday.
