"Mad World"

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world ... mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world

What voices in these young gentlemen....
Yeah they are for real !

The Singers
A group of Italian teenagers: Gianluca Ginoble was born on February 11, 1995 in Roseto degli Abruzzi (province of Teramo), in the Abruzzo region of central Italy; Ignazio Boschetto was born on October 4, 1994 in Agrigento (Sicily), while Piero Barone was born in Sicily on June 24, 1993, but grew up in Bologna (northern Italy).

They are known as " IL Volo's ".

Their website:
IL Volo

The Song :
"O Sole Mio" was written in 1898. In 1950, Tony Martin had a #2 hit with "There's No Tomorrow" (same melody, different lyrics). In 1960, Elvis Presley had a #1 hit with "It's Now Or Never" (same melody again, but different lyrics).

This is one of My Favorites done by Mr. Ben Meyers
It is a cover of Love the Way You Lie.
I love the arrangement and has just the right instruments
which makes it a super song for me...
Hope you enjoy.

Ok I am not into rap but had to share this one with you ... This is the City where I grew up ... This shows video around Maryville and Alcoa (really hard to tell where one ends and the other begins) and one shot of Knoxville (Sun Sphere) not sure why that is in the video unless they are just wanting to give people not familiar with this area a landmark. ... You will not see the upper crust places in this video which is really giving a better picture of Maryville (it is a down to earth kind of place.) .... You will hear the names Friendsville, Greenback, Townsend, Walland, Louisville ... All these are close to one another and are towns or communities plus they also mention Blount County (that is the county inwhich all of those are in) ... well I know it is strange but I do not want this message to be too long to explain ... One more thing Maryville is pronounce by the locals as " Mur- ville " ... Remember we are just good ole country and mountain boys .... Hope you enjoy ... at least you get to see a little of my home town (Area) ...

    A Thousand Words

    A great story that leaves you wanting to know more.
    Sometimes in saying nothing you can say so much more.

    Every day: so many opportunities to connect. What if you took just one?

    The movie short is titled : " A Thousand Words "

I first heard about this place after hearing Link from Rhett and Link on YouTube.  Link said he loved Butt Drugs and was headed there...  So I had to look it up and Low and Behold there in  Corydon, IN is a drug store called Butt Drugs.... It is a family run store that has been in business for many years .... Amazing ...
Here is a banner and a photo of the store front...

2 Guys 600 Pillows (Backwards Music Video)

    Rhett & Link , two funny guys on YouTube ...  Two Guys 600 pillows.
    YouTubers give them ideas and they create something entertaining ...  Plus they do find a sponsor who's product goes along with the idea of the video .... You will see what I am trying to say ...  They have a little fun, someone gets a little advertising and we get a lot of entertainment ....   Enjoy.

Ewan Maccoll wrote "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" very quickly at the request of Peggy Seeger, who needed it for use in a play she was appearing in. He taught it to her by long-distance telephone, while she was on tour in the United States (from which MacColl had been barred because of his Communist past). This song became a #1 hit in 1972 when covered by Roberta Flack and won MacColl a Grammy Award for Song of the Year, while Flack received a Grammy Award for Record of the Year.  

Lyrics :

First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies, my love,
To the dark and the empty skies.

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
And felt your heart beat close to mine
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command.

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time my love
It would last till the end of time my love

The first time ever I saw your face, your face,
your face, your face

Love This Commercial "The Force"

Too Kewl !!!
Real or Not ... I do not know.
I am thinking it would be fun to watch them on Myth Busters try it...
It was a commercial for Hi-Tec shoes.

This was my favorite part of the Opening of the 2010 Olympics
A Poem about Canada

We Are More by Shane Koyczan
Originally written as a love song to Canada

A moving video by a 15 year old girl name Lizzie Palmer.

This video would hold true for almost any country and not just the USA. All soldiers whether they fight for what we believe is right or not, have families which have been or are affected by war.
I do hope you watch it.

Hope for the Hopeless

Thank Goodness, if this had not been true
not sure where I would be today!
Enjoy the video.

Got a little extra cash to burn?
Check this bad little puppy out !

One place says it is a German company and another says Canadian Company. After some reading it is an Canadian company that licensed it to Jetlev Inc in Florida, US who later combined forces with MS Watersports GmbH of Hamburg, Germany. Hope you enjoy the vids and if you want to know more just click here --> JetLev.

It's not quite the jet pack we all dreamed as kids, but a Canadian company may have the next best thing. For a price of about $130,000 Jet Levitation will sell you a water-powered jet pack (of sorts) that can launch users 30 feet into the air.

The JetLev system's only catch is that it attaches to a jet ski motor -- and users are tethered by a 30-foot cable. The pack should be available this year.

Food, Inc. trailer

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of e coli--the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
