Praying for all of you still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. And yes, my family and I in the New York region weathered the storm and are okay. Talk about “October Surprise”!
In the mean time, it’s Halloween! And as usual, I find myself revisiting two videos:
1. David’s Video Playlist (because I like his little “thriller” dance and he’s oh-so-cute in this! One day, he’ll have a music video worthy of a VH1 video playlist)
2. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” of course!
…at least to be able to watch The Voice tonight and to post this latest blog!
If you watched The Voice, you will understand why I’m inspired to post this video from yesteryear!
Oh boy! I was prepared to go to work today until I got a notice that all classes are canceled! The winds and rains haven’t started yet. I guess I better hunker down as Hurricane Sandy passes over New York.
Stay safe, everyone!
I saw Cloud Atlas last night. It was really good! Although I can see why some folks would have a problem with some of the “Race Bending” that goes on (there’s gender-bending as well):

A new up and coming hip hop artist, Angel Haze, released a mixtape called “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” a remix of Eminem’s rap of the same title. It’s a graphic and profanity-laden description of her experience of childhood sexual abuse. It has haunted me, so I’m replaying it here:
And since I like triumph over victimization, I’m going to also feature the girl-power anthem, “Girl on Fire,” from Alicia Keys (because I need light to follow darkeness).
