Are you guys familiar with Gangnam Style? It’s a South Korean pop song whose video features unique, oft-parodied dance moves.
Psy, the musical force behind the song and dance was on Ellen ( I love Ellen!) teaching Ellen and Britney the dance. Britney is in serious-business heels and Ellen suggests she take them off so dancing will be easier. Psy stops Britney, saying that her heels are in keeping with the general sentiment of his song.
“Dress classy, dance cheesy”
Love it. The true genius of Psy is perhaps his ability to not take himself to seriously.
Yep, still from the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders podcast. I’m obsessed. This particular quote jumped out at me – it’s hard, of course, but we should all aim to just keep going when things don’t turn out the way we want.
The field is in north central Iowa, taken when Will and I were there in May for a cousin’s wedding.
I’m still loving the heck out of this Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders series from Stanford. The other day, this comment by Kristina Johnson caught me. She’s talking about field hockey and, to be clear, I’m really no athlete. Dancer? Maybe. Always. But I’m not so good with the team sports.
But, like with all good sports quotes, they apply to the world at large. Behold.
Sometimes you are the helper, sometimes you are the person being helped. Each person will likely be both at some point in life.
This specific lecture was by Gale Anne Hurd. It’s OK if you aren’t sure who she is … I didn’t know before the podcast, either. She’s the film producer behind such gems as The Terminator and Aliens. I haven’t seen either of those movies, actually, but that’s not the point.
Ms Hurd spoke eloquently about the film industry when she first arrived; about being a woman in a world of men. She credits her success to two role models, one of whom being Roger Corman. Something she said stuck with me, and I had to capture it.
That image is of the clouds outside my window last night. I’ve been taken with the gorgeous sunsets we’ve had and inspired by Minna May to use them as backdrops for quotes I want to hang on to.
I learned a new phrase recently and I’ve been wearing it out.
“Don’t Die on That Hill”
Quick Back-Story: I’ve always been into baby names – I love reading about what goes into that pivotal parental decision. As a kid, I had a well-worn copy of Beyond Jennifer and Jason. Now, I check site such as Name Candywhere I’m a regular reader of the Name Lady’sadvice column. Recently, a new-grandmother wrote in about how she “disagreed” with the pronunciation of her new granddaughter’s name – she said “Aida” / daughter-in-law said “Ida.” Who was correct?
