have you seen the YMCA commercial w/ kids singing to the tune of ‘lua’ bright eyes?

I was watching a movie on BRAVO and a YMCA commercial came on that caught my ear. It was a child singing a song to the tune of Lua by bright Eyes. This struck my attention because I really like that song and was very surprised to hear it associated with a child and the YMCA. If you’ve never heard it, listen for the first time. “Lua” is a single by Bright Eyes released in October 2004. Originally appearing on the album, I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning, the song deals with two people as they struggle through depression, addiction, and an interminable night.[1] Conor Oberst appears alone on the track, on vocals and acoustic guitar. First thing I did was google “lua bright eyes ymca commercial” and I found this tweet: Verse 4 & 5: You’re looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black You just keep going to the bathroom always say you’ll be right back Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think you’ve got it bad But what’s so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag. I’ve got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on…

music is played for love, cruisin is made for love

This is me today in my new Chevy Cruze from GM. I have it for the weekend, yahooo! Thanks GM Canada. I need to juice up my ipad/ipad with tunage for driving.  Lookin’ pretty & cold out across the lake today. I don’t mind long as it’s sunny, it’s good for cruisin. This was last night at Lady Gaga, pretty rad. Imagine how amazing that is for her, Lady Gaga I love you. Tonight is the 3rd annual CanLit at The Biz Media. Last year GenYTO partnered with CanLit for an EPIC win of a night. It was so much fun. See a bunch of photos from the first ever CanLit on Rannie’s site here and last year’s event here. It seems SO long ago, last year we did chatroulette at the party. This was me, classic yelling face, phone in hand.
