Walk Across America

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a while (and I love the soundtrack)...and the video has gone viral...more than half a million hits since it was posted.

Mike walks across America from New York to San Francisco.  The video is created by a combination of stop-motion and time-lapse video. 

Gold Star for Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds makes a kid's day by reciting the Green Lantern Oath at San Diego Comic-Con...
Gold star for Ryan.  He is so badass.

Teenage Dream

Loving this new single by Katy Perry....'Teenage Dream' [and who are we kidding, the guy in the video helps out the cause of the song too...]

Friday Night Mash Ups

Perfect for dancing away in the kitchen while loading the dishwasher on a Friday night....of course all while wearing killer heels.

Le love him.

Ry Cuming - Always Remember Me....

A Quiet Sunday Drive...

Best video ever.
Love how the wife totally freaks out on her husband...we Italian chicks can curse with the best of them.
That's what happens when you marry a race car driver.


Ok I Lied....One More

After listening to this mash-up I seriously need one of those girly drinks with the pretty pink umbrellas....

Jason Mraz Vs. TLC

One more mash-up...

Never thought these two would mash-up so brilliantly but they do....

The Killers: Human and Irene Cara: Flashdance

Knock Out Eileen

Got this from my husband...this song by LL Cool J is forever ruined for me now if only because I can't get this mash up out of my head.

Damn it!

Not So Effective Words

Here is my list for words rendered completely useless when applied to my dear 2 year old daughter...

  • No
  • Wait (as in 'Wait two seconds Mommy needs to pee')
  • Quiet
  • Not now 
  • How (as in 'How did you manage to find Mommy's Rimmel cover up and draw all over the walls and your fabric covered chair in less than 30sec?')
  • Please
  • Stop
  • Why (as in 'Why did you pour Daddy's vanilla flavoured protein powder all over the kitchen floor?')

Can't get enough of this song....who would of thought Hayley Williams of Paramore and B.o.B would sound so amazing together?

The Other Guys

Gotta say this movie looks DAMN funny.  In theatres August 6th.

Epic Edit Choir

Best editing job ever!

Only in NYC...

This was too good to wait until tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.

Le barf.

Band of Horses

Such a brilliant band...and a fab track.

'Laredo' by Band of Horses from their latest release Infinite Arms.

Saved By The Bell

Was not aware there was a demand for a triple-A radio version of 'Saved By The Bell'.
My bad.
Like so heartfelt.

Umm yeah...about that.

Geography of the Sexes

This was sent to me by my cousin Pina....very damn funny and very true.


Between 18 and 22, a woman is like  Africa   - half discovered, half wild,
fertile and naturally beautiful!

Between 23 and 30, a woman is like   Europe   -
Well-developed and open to trade, especially
For something of real value.

Between 31 and 35, a woman is like    Spain  - very hot, relaxed, and
convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40, a woman is like   Greece &  gently aging, but still a
warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50, a woman is like    Great Britain, with a glorious and
all-conquering past..

Between 51 and 60, a woman is like   Israel -  has been through war,
doesn't make the same mistakes twice, and takes care of business.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like    Canada - 
Cool, self-preserving, but open to meeting new people.

After 70, she becomes    Tibet  - wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past
and the wisdom of the ages.... An adventurous spirit and a thirst for
spiritual knowledge.


Between 1 and 80, a man is like   Iran   - ruled by nuts.

More Roberto Bernardi

I love his work....he is brilliant.

More oil paintings by Italian artist Roberto Bernardi...

Alex Goot strikes again...

I so heart Alex Goot.
He's incredibly talented. He does these kick ass cover songs and manages to make them all his own...

Here are two of his latest...le love them.

Katy Perry - California Gurls

Taio Cruz - Dynamite

Amazing realistic paintings

These are so amazing, it's ridiculous.
These are all oil paintings done by Italian artist Roberto Bernardi....paintings.
Roberto Bernardi specializes in painting hyper-realistic scenes using nothing but oil-based paints.

Alex Wong and tWitch

Ridiculous. Awesome. Brilliant.

I am a huge fan of Alex Wong...who knew that a classically trained ballet dancer had a hip hop dancer in him dying to get out.

Click the link below and check his amazing routine from So You Think You Can Dance.

'Don't You Forget Bout Me' Documentary

Scouting For Girls

'This Ain't A Love Song (This Is Goodbye)' by Scouting For Girls....love, love this song & this band. It's on repeat a lot.

Fab lyrics and ridiculous catchy, stay-in-your-brain-all-day hook.

Italian Life Lessons...

From my cousin Roberta in Italy...

Ho imparato.... che nessuno è perfetto... Finché non ti innamori.

Ho imparato.... che la vita è dura...Ma io di più.

Ho imparato... .che le opportunità non vanno mai perse. Quelle che lasci andare tu...le prende qualcun altro.

Ho imparato.... che quando serbi rancore e amarezza la felicità va daun'altra parte.

Ho imparato....Che bisognerebbe sempre usare parole buone...perché domani forse si dovranno rimangiare.

Ho imparato.... che un sorriso è un modo economico per migliorare il tuo aspetto.

Ho imparato....che non posso scegliere come mi sento...Ma posso sempre farci qualcosa.

Ho imparato.... che quando tuo figlio appena nato tiene il tuo dito nel suo piccolo pugno...ti ha agganciato per la vita.

Ho imparato.... che tutti vogliono vivere in cima alla montagna....Ma tutta la felicità e la crescita avvengono mentre la scali.

Ho imparato..... che bisogna godersi il viaggio e non pensare solo alla meta.

Ho imparato....che è meglio dare consigli solo in due circostanze...Quando sono richiesti e quando ne dipende la vita.

Ho imparato....che meno tempo spreco...più cose faccio. E' la settimana dell' amicizia ...Dimostra ai tuoi amici che ci tieni.

TiK ToK ~ California Girls Mash Up

Love these two mash ups....scary how truly the same these two songs sound...

Ke$ha and Katy Perry...
