Work Hard, Play Hard, Dance Hard.

…and this is why I love going to work each and every day!

Someone Like THIS GIRL

Oh Connie Talbot. Little Connie Talbot.

We thought we had seen it all when you melted Simon Cowell’s cold–because it’s only covered by a thin layer of  tight t-shirt cotton even in the winter–heart with your performance of Over The Rainbow on “Britain’s Got Talent” a few moons back.

But no, you were not done. You were like, “Yeah, I’m cute an’ all, but I’ve got badder pipes than that.”

Badder pipes indeed, Connie. So, like all former reality stars, you turned on your video camera, pointed it at yourself, and uploaded the finished product to Youtube.

And we are thankful you did.

Check out Connie’s creepy–because she’s only 10 and the song’s about still being in love with your already-moved on ex–and hauntingly beautiful cover of Adele’s Someone Like You.

Playlist of the Day: OnRepeat

SO, when I like a song, I listen to the shit out of it.

And, as is often the case, I will put a selected track on repeat and enjoy it 3 or 4x on my daily walk to work.

Recently, my collection of ‘Can’t Get Enough Of Them’ songs has grown to such an extent that I have been able to create a modest playlist–OnRepeat.

Without shame or embarrassment, I now share the current CGEOT title holders:

Christianne Noll “Back To Before” RAGTIME THE MUSICAL

Idina Menzel “What I Did For Love” from A CHORUS LINE

Jennifer Hudson “I’m Here” from THE COLOR PURPLE THE MUSICAL

Gavin Creel “I’ve Been” from NEXT TO NORMAL

Sherie Rene Scott “My Strongest Suit” from AIDA

Jeremy Jordan “I Am Yours” & “Carry Me Up”

Oh yea, did I mention most of them are from musicals?


They get better each time you listen!

It’s J-Hud’s World.

Holiest mother of ba-nanas.

Jennifer Hudson has been laying low recently–most likely due to to motherhood duties–and only gracing the small screen every so often to show off her svelter frame for Weight Watchers.

But at long last, our beloved diva is back…and belting.

Here she is performing Aretha Franklin’s legendary power track Respect at the ceremony honoring Tina Fey with the “Mark Twain Prize For Humor” in Washinton, DC.

The bod. The hair. The voice.

I loves it all.

Beat-in’ Down The White House

SO, this is really cool!

The Obama Administration has made Arts education a priority in their platform, and here’s a prime example of talking the talk AND walking the walk–an in-house musical theatre revue as part of the White House Concert Series.

Check out a performance of the ‘Hairspray’ finale “You Can’t Stop The Beat” by Danielle Arci and Constantine Rousouli (from the Nat’l Touring Co.), and accompanied by students from The Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and the Joy of Motion dance center in DC.

So fun!

I know it’s been awhile, and I apologize.

It’s a lame excuse, but starting real-people work has been an adjustment, and I’ve let COL suffer along the way.

But I’m BACK with one of my favorite videos EVER, and I promise I won’t leave you all hanging ever again.

In honor of last night’s “Glee,” let’s all take a moment to pay homage to the inspiration for last night’s final number feat. Rachel and Kurt.

Check out the divine Audra McDonald, and the even diviner Patti Lupone belting out Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy (originally done by Babs and Judy G).

You probably want to sit down for this.

Who’s Justin Bieber?

We all know I’m uncomfortable with  anything having to do with Justin Bieber: his teenage sex symbol status, his songs about love AND his Canadian-ness.

SO, in an effort to cure everyone else of Bieber fever, I introduce Australian 13-year-old Cody Simpson.

Check out his track “iYiYi” (Australian for “Down with the Bieber”) feat. Flo-Rida.

Come on, people, ditch Biebs and become a Cody Roadie like me.

Single (old) (crazy) Ladies


If you didn’t already want to see Sex and the City 2, this will probably convince you.

There’s only one Liza.

This gives me such GLEE.

SO, here’s a sneak preview of this week’s episode, called “Vitamin D.”

The whole thing is ba-nanas, but just wait until 1:20. bam. nbd.

Maybe (i’ll listen) This Time (and again and again and again)


SO, most of you probably don’t care, but this recording is BA-NANA PANCAKES!

From the upcoming episode 5 of Glee, it’s guest star Kristin Chenoweth and Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) singing “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret…

They don’t need any more introduction. bam. nbd.
