A Garfield Christmas Special

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on December 16, 2017 by getbent57

There are a handful of specials I like to watch every year.  One is A Garfield Christmas Special.  It hard to believe that this is thirty  years old.  While some of the animation is a bit dated now.  It is still funny.  There is one spot where they are driving to the farm house.  Where Jon is talking about the fresh smelling air.  Then Garfield says, that’s not what I smell, cracks me up very time.  If you want to give this classic a watch.  You can do so > here or below.

Fatboy_Slim_Praise_YouIt’s musical throwback Thursday once again.  While watching some TV an ad came on for some jewelry.  The song in the back ground sounded very familiar.  Then it hit me, was Praise You.   It was a contemporary version of the song original done by Fatboy Slim.   This is off this second album You’re Come a Long Way, Baby, released in 1998.  The official music video is something very special.  Which you can see > here or below.  It is very low rent.  Which makes its awesome.  It has a group of very crappy dancers in front of a movie theatre dancing to this song.  While people in line to buy tickets look on. Having no clue what is going on.

Phats_Small_Turn_AroundTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  For this weeks song have stumbled across one I have not heard in many years.  Like a lot of music of this type back in the day.  Sampled other songs when added repetitive vocals.  That being said I think it still holds up well and fun to listen to.  It’s Turn Around by Paths & Small.  This may be their only big hit but is is a good one.  It is off their 1999 album called Now Phats What I Small Music.  You can listen/watch > here or below.

Incredibles_2Back in the year 2004 an awesome movie was released, The Incredibles.  This was an amazing movie.  Ever since then there have been rumours that there was sequel in the works.  But that never happened until now.  A few days ago Pixar put a teaser trailer out for Incredibles 2.  In the teaser is shows Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) discovering his baby, Jack-Jack has powers.  Think this will be even better than the first movie.  You can see the teaser trailer > here or below.  The movie will be out on June 15, 2018.

Delerium_SilenceIt’s musical throwback Thursday.  The song this week is Silence featuring Sarah McLachlan by Delerium.  Not sure if I have ever heard the original version of this song.   It has been remixed many times.  Which is where I know it most from.  This song stands the test of time.  First released in 1999 of their album Karma.  Years later it can still be heard.  Not just because its an awesome song.  Think it because of Sarah McLachlan voice.  Which is pretty amazing.  Think this the most popular version of the song > here or below.
