As if you haven’t had enough ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ recently, Glee decided to do their own version this week. I’m pretty sure their writers read my blog. Just saying.
And while I was told to immediately watch the show, I decided to just go with the YouTube version.
GLEE’S VERSION OF TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART: 9
I’m not sure exactly who ‘needed who tonight’, as there were dramatic love glances everywhere, I can confidently say it’s the best vocal version of the song I’ve ever heard.
-1: There’s something to be said for the raspiness of Bonnie Tyler’s voice, and that’s missing here… but otherwise it’s INCREDIBLE!
Last night Laura, Scott and I headed to Tyler’s Taproom downtown after climbing, enjoying some beautifully warm weather and delicious foods. That is, until a thunderstorm began approaching, and striking everything in sight. For someone who is scared to death of thunderstorms, this doesn’t exactly make for a relaxing end to a meal. However, plus 2 since we didn’t get hit 🙂
DINNERTIME THUNDERSTORMS: 2
While this isn’t actually a photo I took, it might as well have been. Seriously, lightning striking EVERYWHERE.
Laura and I then headed down to Broad Street Cafe to see Ted Dreis and Alex Wilkins (of Tripp). Ted was up first, and really enjoyed the intro to yet another fabulous local musician in the triangle. Seriously, this place is amazing. Interesting lyrics, but fun sound, especially when he was playing guitar and harmonica at the same time 🙂
Then Alex was up, and unfortunately it was already getting late and we only stayed for a couple songs. HOWEVER, pleasantly surprised with this…
ALEX FINALLY SINGING MY MASON JENNINGS REQUEST: 10
While it took about 8 months, I finally got my Mason Jennings request. And you gotta give him some credit, considering as of my first request he had no idea who Mason was.
And Alex, don’t think this 10 is just because you asked for it…
MURPHY’S ATTEMPTS TO SHOW ME HE’S BORED: 4
It started with a ziploc bag torn to pieces, then turned to a cardboard box, and finally when it got to this I knew it was time to put my work aside and take him for a run. While annoying, and surprisingly difficult to clean up, it does force me to enjoy the nice weather 🙂 Plus, I suppose dog’s need to communicate somehow, and Murph has definitely figured out what’s effective in getting what he wants… Plus, I can’t help but laugh.
Until next time, just living for the tens 🙂
