#TBT - Viva la Vida Cover by Anthony Rodriguez

I was browsing through some YouTube videos and came across this footage of me dancing for performing artist and entertainer extraordinaire, Anthony Rodriguez.  He performed a cover of Coldplay's, "Viva La Vida" and also created the choreography.  It was filmed almost 4 years ago; I thought it would be fun to share.  Enjoy!




I can't believe tomorrow will be two years that he's gone.  I said everything I could say last year.  I still feel the same way.  Today, I will simply leave you with (another) two of my favorite (and in my opinion among the most underrated) Michael Jackson songs.  Please enjoy.



I'm going to see Janet in concert on Monday and am beyond excited.  I've been browsing through her videos online in preparation for the show so I thought I'd share some of my favorites with you (believe me, it was difficult to narrow it down to these few).  I'll definitely do a post-concert follow-up.  In the meantime, enjoy!

What are some of your favorites?

*please note - I wanted to add the "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" video (I seem to have a love affair with the Jackson family and Herb Ritts as I previously wrote about here) but couldn't find the original online anywhere.  If any of you know where I may be able to find it, I will be forever indebted.


Let's Go 2011!

Just a little motivation for the new year.  This is definitely one of my favorite house tracks of all time.  Enjoy and have a blessed 2011!

Classic Video Pick of the Week: Michael Jackson "In The Closet"

I know this isn't the obvious choice for a Michael Jackson video but it is hands down, one of my favorites.  I love the sensuality and the rawness of it; I feel like it captured Michael in a different light. Throw in Naomi Campbell as a co-star and Herb Ritts behind the lens, and you end up with magic.  I definitely think this is one of Michael's most underrated videos.  So here it is, please enjoy my pick for classic video of the week: Michael Jackson, In the Closet.

Michael Jackson "In the Closet"
Released: 1992
Director: Herb Ritts
