My Youtube Clip of the Week: Alex and Sierra cover Britney Spears TOXIC! #sultry

I am loving these audition videos and this one is one of my favourites. Now I’m not trying to love my deeply rooted love for Britney… but I really think this version of her song TOXIC by this couple is just too good. Take a listen, have a watch…. and tell me what you think? It’s really great seeing a performer not trying to be all sexual… and it comes across so beautifully sultry. With just under 22 million views it seems this couple has us all ‘in love with their love’.

got a great YouTube vid you’d like to share? email them to me on keri@1049.fm

#AdviceFromSomewhere. We could all take a little something from these.

Spend some time alone.

This came around anonamously, identified as from a “Chinese Tantra Totem” – One definition of a tantra being a statement of principle or religious practice and collections of such principles and practices. It’s origins are probably from south Asia such as India and may have followed Hinduism and Buddhism and other related belief and practice systems into East Asia including China. One person who viewed this page responded that they are from the Dalai Lama, but didn’t not say which one – which generation.

May be. I haven’t verified any origins for these sayings. I don’t think most of them are unique to China or Asia. Certainly some have existed in western culture for a long time as well. (They are even older than me) Some are probably ancient. Some, such as the ‘smile when answering the phone’ are at least modern variations if not actually recent. But they sound good. If you live this way life will seem happy. – from the web author. – http://www.msu.edu/~jerrymc/humor/advice.html

My YouTube Clip of the week – Blackstreet No Diggity VINTAGE ‘jessica rabbit’ style cover. ♥

No Diggity – Vintage Jessica Rabbit- Style Blackstreet Cover ft. Ariana Savalas

Hello again :)

Every Saturday just a little after 2pm I post my ‘YouTube Clip of the week’, and today’s is a goodie. Blackstreet released their hit ‘No Diggity’ in 1996 and recently it was being sung and hummed all across the world after an acappella version was done on the movie “PITCH PERFECT’. I have never stopped loving this song and I seem to be a fan of most of the remakes and remixes. This one, done by Ariana Savalas in a vintage style (and with over 1,3million views) is a little different, and I would LOVE to know what YOU think of it.

If you know of any great covers or amazing remixes/remakes please email them to me on keri@1049.fm

Enjoy xxx ♥

 

 

Mom tells her son she’s pregnant… his reaction is PRICELESS. hahaha

 

I am FINISHED. This morning I’m standing in on the Heart Breakfast show and Aden Thomas (show host) showed me this video. This little boy is told that his mom is pregnant and he is BESIDE HIMSELF…. why on EARTH would mom want another child? SHE HAS TWO ALREADY… “what were you thinking”… “this is exasperating” he says hahahaha. Enjoy watching it over and over…. ♥

My YouTube Clip of the week: GREAT flashmob choreography! ♥

Every Saturday, I put up a video that I really love. And this week is a video I must have watched a hundred times, but that’s nothing when you see that this video has had over 6.6 million views. I have a background in dance and choreography so maybe this is why I just love this so much, but I also really enjoy their choice of music (Macklemore – Can’t Hold Us). This dance troupe, named ‘hey crew’ are really amazing. And I definitely have a crush on their lead choreographer Guillaume Lorentz.
I’m also a huge fan of flashmobs, I wish we did them more :)

Enjoy this awesome piece of choreography. And if you have any great youtube videos please send them to me via email to keri@1049.fm ☻

What is a ‘flashmob’?

A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.[2][3][4] Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.[5][6][7][8][9]

There is some question as to whether the term, coined in 2003, is applied to events and performances organized for the purposes of politics (such as protests), commercial advertisement, publicity stunts that involve public relation firms, or paid professionals.[7][10][11] In these cases of a planned purpose for the social activity in question, the term smart mobs is often applied instead.

The term “flash rob” or “flash mob robberies”, a reference to the way flash mobs assemble, has been used to describe a number of robberies and assaults perpetrated suddenly by groups of teenage youth.[12][13][14] Bill Wasik, originator of the first flash mobs, and a number of other commentators have questioned or objected to the usage of “flash mob” to describe criminal acts,[14][15] however, in a number of reported cases, flash mobs have turned violent or led to criminal activity.[16][17]

My Clip of the week… is Justin Timberlake doing Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ dance. #snl

Every Saturday I put up a video that has amused me in some way. August, being women’s month, I have stuck to ‘lady’ related videos. And today is no different… kind of.
If you have never heard of SNL (Saturday Night Live), it is a comedy skit show based in the states and comes up with some real gems, like this one.
This is a parody of Beyonce’s Single Ladies dance, featuring B herself, alongside Andy Samberg (Brooklyn nine-nine, and The Lonely Island) as well as Justin Timberlake… dressed in tights, leotards and black heels! It is great. hahaha. Enjoy

My YouTube Clip of the week: Female Fails #newsbloopers #falling

HELLO AGAIN!
It is Saturday, which means… my YouTube clip of the week goes live.

As it is Women’s Month I have been focusing purely on the ladies of YouTube. Today is no different… There are two videos today. Both I really enjoyed but probably because I, like many people, get some weird pleasure from watching people fall. NOTE: no one was very seriously injured in these videos. (except hopefull for the 2 clips with bulls where I hope the people WERE. *I am not a fan of rodeo or the running of the bulls at all*)
aaaanyway….

The first video is one of female news anchors ‘failing’ live. I love news blooper videos, and I have MANY funnier ones but because I’m sharing this with my work profile I need to ‘keep it clean’ ;) My favourite part is where the news anchor pronounces ‘Phuket’ as … well… you can only imagine.

the second video, with over 142 million views, proves to me, that it’s not only me and my sister Ceejae who LOVE watching people fall. This is a 10 minute home video compilation of ladies coming very short. hahahaha. IF this is your cup of tea… I’m sure you will also enjoy it.

If you have any great YouTube clips that you would like to share on my show please email keri@1049.fm

and remember… you can listen to Heart 104.9FM live on streaming here.

 

My Youtube Clip of the week… #womensday #CarlyRoseSonneclar

HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY.

I have shared this video many times before… but this audition holds a very special place in my heart and is my choice for today’s YouTube Clip of the week.

Carly Rose Sonenclar (born April 20, 1999)[1] is an American singer and teen actress. In December 2012, she became the runner-up on the second season of the American version of the The X Factor.

She began her acting career in 2003, soon making her Broadway debut in Les Miserables as Young Cosette. Among other stage roles, she originated the role of Chloe (Alice’s daughter) in the 2011 musical Wonderland on Broadway. She played a regular character in season 3 of the The Electric Company television series and has sung the U.S. National Anthem for major sporting events.

In 2012, Sonenclar auditioned for the second season of The X Factor USA with the song “Feeling Good” by Cy Grant (famously covered by Nina Simone among others). Sonenclar received a standing ovation from all four judges (L.A. Reid commented “You may be 13, but your soul is old!”; Simon Cowell awarded her “4,833 yes-es”), and she advanced to the next round.[13] After her successful initial audition, she advanced through the first day of X Factor’s “bootcamp,” where she sang “Pumped Up Kicks” with Beatrice Miller. Of the 120 contestants who auditioned at bootcamp that day, she was among the sixty or so asked to continue on.[14] At the end of bootcamp, she was chosen to be one of the six contestants in the “teens” category who were invited to perform at the “judges’ houses” stage of the competition. She performed the song “Brokenhearted” for the “teens” category mentor, Britney Spears, and Spears’s guest judge will.i.am. Both Spears and will.i.am responded positively to her performance; will.i.am remarked appreciatively that she was “possessed.” Sonenclar next advanced into the Top 16 round, where she performed “Good Feeling“, then the Top 13 round, where she performed “It Will Rain“. When Sonenclar reached the Top 12 round—where she performed “My Heart Will Go On“—it was revealed that she was the second-most-voted for person in the competition so far, behind only Tate Stevens,[15] a distinction she achieved again after advancing to the Top 10 round.

On November 21, she performed the song “Over the Rainbow“, which she received a standing ovation from all four judges, sending her into the Top 8 round. It was revealed that she had been the #1 most-voted-for contestant in the competition that night.[16] On November 28, she performed “Rolling in the Deep“, sending her into the Top 6 round, and was revealed to have again been the #1 most-voted-for contestant in the competition.[17] She later advanced to the Finale round, in which she performed “Feeling Good” (again), “How Do I Live” (with LeAnn Rimes), and “Hallelujah“.[18] On December 20, 2012, it was announced that she had finished the competition in second place behind Tate Stevens.
