I have been publishing this blog once a week without fail, since 2014.
I stopped publishing it on 9/25/22
A few of you indicated that you missed these weekly postings, so
I am going to try to get back into the mode of again publishing this blog
once a week on Sundays.
BOOK OF THE WEEK
I know this book is categorized as a classic of Jewish spirituality. With that said, I think this book has a lot to say to those of you who spend much of your time simplly rushing around, or spending much of your time acquiring things, organizing your things or trying to get rid of the things you have acquired.
By Abraham Joshua Heschel
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
This movie is a total fantasy, but it is very funny and at times endearing.
Ticket to Paradise (2022)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
To be honest, I like watching this guy dance, more than the song. I wish I could be as cool.
Lonely Boy (2011)
By The Black Keys
Add’l Info About The Video
The promotional music video for “Lonely Boy” features actor, musician and part-time security guard Derrick T. Tuggle dancing and lip-syncing to the song in front of the Pepper Tree Motel in North Hollywood, a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
The video, shot in a single take, went viral and garnered more than 400,000 views on YouTube within 24 hours.
The video originally had a script and a cast of more than 40 people, but the group was not pleased with the results. Tuggle was originally cast as an extra. While on set, Tuggle’s improvised dancing drew the attention of director Jesse Dylan.
The video was nominated for a 2012 MTV Video Music Award for Best Rock Video. Tuggle’s performance later earned him a cameo appearance in the music video for “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
ART OF THE WEEK
I took this photo of Multnomah Falls, outside of Portland, Oregon, back in 2007.
It looks like there has been some changes since 2007.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
JOKE OF THE WEEK
I’ve had more than my share of awards this year.
Although I still miss some workouts,
showing up is the secret to many things in life.
You have to learn to say no to things that aren’t helping you get to where you want to be in life.
Sometimes, we discourage others without intending to do so. Please be particularly careful not to do this.
I find the above frightening, because it is true that somethings that I treasure will be either gone or different. Very few of us really appreciate what we have.
