I wrote this when I was in college, on a blog way-back-when. It was right after I got home from the Eisenhower building where Maya Angelou performed. When I heard she was visiting Penn State, I just had to see her.

I’m glad I did.

"Never trust a man who doesn’t laugh"

I had the great privilege to see Maya Angelou tonight and just listen to her.

She was silly and serious, and wholeheartedly down to earth. Every anecdote was absolutely eloquent. Her poems never held so much power to me until she, the Maya Angelou, read them.

It’s like seeing a legend. A real-life hero. An artist all artists aspire to be.
And I loved every bit of it.

Truly one of the most inspirational nights I’ll ever have.

I stand by what I said four years ago. It really was one of the most inspirational nights I will ever have.

Rest in peace, Maya Angelou.

Lady Gaga - G.U.Y.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen choreography in a pop video, done by the artist themselves. This is kind of refreshing.

Plus, I’m still on a Gaga high since her concert two weeks ago ;)

  • Paul: Tell me you why you love me. In FOUR words!
  • Me: Because. You. Are. Corny.
  • Me: Do it in three.
  • Paul: You. Have. Boobs.
  • Paul: Two?
  • Me: Funny. Man.
  • Me: One!
  • Paul: DESTINY.

Totally bawled my eyes out when they used Tegan and Sara’s “Where Does the Good Go” in Cristina and Mer’s dance party.

And did anyone notice they used an acoustic cover of Róisín Murphy’s “Ruby Blue” - also from season one?

Throwback Thursday, indeed.
