Aptly entitled “The Coolest Nature Video Ever [Edited By Roen Horn]” This is just a really cool look at nature and it’s less than 2 minutes. I found it fascinating. I hope you will too.

Best Procrastination Tip Ever – Leo Babuata.

Best Procrastination Tip Ever

procrast

Post written by Leo Babauta.

Your first thought as you look at this article will be, “I’ll read this later.”

But don’t. Let the urge to switch to a new task pass. Read this now.

It’ll take you two minutes. It’ll save you countless hours.

I’ve written the book on ending procrastination, but I’ve since come up with a very simple technique for beating everyone’s favorite nemesis. It is incredibly easy, but as with anything, it takes a little practice.

Try it now:

Identify the most important thing you have to do today.

Decide to do just the first little part of it — just the first minute, or even 30 seconds of it. Getting started is the only thing in the world that matters.

Clear away distractions. Turn everything off. Close all programs. There should just be you, and your task.

Sit there, and focus on getting started. Not doing the whole task, just starting.

Pay attention to your mind, as it starts to have urges to switch to another task. You will have urges to check email or Facebook or Twitter or your favorite website. You will want to play a game or make a call or do another task. Notice these urges.

But don’t move. Notice the urges, but sit still, and let them pass. Urges build up in intensity, then pass, like a wave. Let each one pass.

Notice also your mind trying to justify not doing the task. Also let these self-rationalizing thoughts pass.

Now just take one small action to get started. As tiny a step as possible.

Get started, and the rest will flow.

My YouTube clip of the week. WOW. This illusionist is beyond great.

I just stumbled across this… this man is incredible.

His name is Darcy Oake and he entered Britain’s Got Talent in 2014. His ‘slight of hand’ is unbelievable. I’m not usually a ‘magic trick’ lover… but this…is… amazing. This video, published in April 2014 has had 46,378,908 views (as of 13/3/2015).

I hope you were as amazed as me. ♥

“Not only can illusionist Darcy make doves appear out of nowhere, he also has an even bigger trick up his sleeve.
Simon thinks the Judges have uncovered a star — see if you agree.”

  1. Born: September 27, 1987 (age 27), Linden Woods, Winnipeg
  2. Nationality: Canadian

My YouTube Clip(s) of the week. #Valentines #Fails #ProposalPrank #BadIdea

Happy Valentine’s Day you guys!

For today’s YTCofW I decided to go with something VDay themed. I don’t know if it’s just me but I am way more fascinated by the stories of love gone bad, than by the mushy ones. haha. So, if you are like me… you may enjoy these.

– no1. This one is brutal. A man gets down on one knee… in a busy food court to ask his gf Caroline to Marry him. Just watch… ouch. I feel for him.

– no2. is a prank gone wrong. A new couple go for a lunch on VDay. And the girlfriend has organised to prank her man. The waiter brings a ring to the table as if he had asked for it to be done. He doesn’t know what’s going on. She pretends like she is really shocked and thinks it’s waaaaay too soon. What he says next is priceless.

– no3. a man is looking for his first kiss. The women are all too keen to help the guy out, but when he asks the very large bouncer man for a kiss… he gets more than he bargained for.

– no4. if you haven’t had enough of the awkwardness. Here is a compilation of 5 proposal fails. ouch! PS: Caroline and the abomination that is the food court proposal features here too. Ouch AGAIN.

My YouTube clip of the week. To remember the legend, Bob Marley, who would have been 70 yesterday. This cover will blow you away.

And another Saturday is upon us. Which means another YouTube clip of the week. This one has a special place in my heart, and because it was the legend’s birthday yesterday, I thought I would keep it all Marley today.

This is a clip I came across from the audition stages of ‘the voice of Holland’ season 4. His name is Mitchell Brunings. He is amazing.

at the time of posting this, this clip had had 33,711,066 views. Follow Mitchell on twitter here.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as me. Goosebumps every time. ♥

 

 

My YouTube Clip of the week. AMAZING cover of #Pharrell #Happy @LaurenPlatt7

Hello again :)

Saturdays mean… another posting of My YouTube clip of the week. Now I’m a little behind in the X Factor UK world… I’m still catching up on season 11 (which has already ended with the amazing Ben taking the title). However… I can watch THIS performance over and over again. One of my favourite performers and performances of the season, I would like to introduce you to Ms. Lauren Platt.

Lauren Platt

Lauren Platt (born 7 October 1997) was a student from Essex.[24] In 2010, she auditioned for the role of Louise Mitchell on EastEnders, but lost out to Brittany Papple.[25] She has stated that her dream duet would be Beyoncé.[1]

Platt was the youngest solo contestant in the competition.[26] With the eliminations of Stephanie Nala and Chloe Jasmine in week two and Lola Saunders in week four, Platt was Fernandez-Versini’s last remaining act in the competition. In week 8, Platt was in the bottom two with Stereo Kicks but was saved by the public vote after the result went to deadlock.[27] However in week 9, she was in the bottom two with Andrea Faustini and was eliminated after only Fernandez-Versini voted to save her, finishing in fourth place and becoming the last of her acts to leave the competition.[10]

This video, published in Oct 2014 has had over 1,870,000 views (when publishing this post). I think it is soulful and beautiful and age appropriate and just flipping kiff. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Follow Lauren on twitter here.

If you have a video you would like me to share with the listeners of Heart 104.9FM please email me the link: keri@1049.fm

 

 

My #YouTubeClipOfTheWeek #EvolutionOfHipHopDancing featuring @JimmyFallon and WILL SMITH!!!

Every Sat I share a video with you that I think is… flipping kiff. There really is very little to explain here. If you aren’t familiar with Jimmy Fallon and his show… do yourself a favour and check out the rest of his stuff. But this is a great start. You may be familiar with a video that went viral called the “Evolution of Dance” which has had over 289 MILLION views. My video is a different take on it… it’s the Evolution of Hip Hop dancing… done by Jimmy Fallon and the one and only… WILL SMITH. It’s had over 23 million views and from the cabbage patch, and the ‘wop’… to running man and every other imaginable hip hop dance… this is a lot of fun to watch :) And the soundtrack is KILLER.

Only watch this if you WANT TO DANCE!! My #YouTubeClipofTheWeek. It’s @C2Cdjs #Happy. #GospelFunk #wow

Every week I choose a ‘sick’ video and share it with you, my readers and on air with my Heart 104.9FM listeners. Today is an absolute favourite of mine.
This song is called HAPPY… and oh my oh my…. I get SO STOKED when I listen to it. And I think that this music video is off the chaaaaaaain. Hence the reason THIS is my choice for my #YoutubeClipOfTheWeek. At the time of me putting up this post, this video (put up in Dec 2012) had had just over 11,803,000 views

C2C (also known as Coups2Cross) was formed in 1998 in the city of Nantes. The collaboration group consists of 4 French DJ’s: Atom and pFeL from Beat Torrent and 20Syl and Greem from Hocus Pocus. Members of an emerging movement called scratch music, each member of the group uses his turntable as an instrument, recreating in turn drums, bass guitars, scratching a riff of guitar or shearing the brass.

They met during their high school years and as teens they were fascinated by the work of DJ Qbert and DJ Shadow, the founding fathers of turntablism. They set off to make a name for themselves at the turn of the millennium and soon started developing their own unique performing style. Follow them on twitter HERE

Want to sing along? No problem… Here are the lyrics. *have a favourite #YoutubeClip? Send them to me now: keri@1049.fm*

 

“Happy”
(feat. Derek Martin)

You’ll never feel happy
You’ll never feel happy, no you won’t, until you try!
You’ll never feel happy
You’ll never feel happy, until you even try [x7]
You’ll never feel happy, until you try

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try [x3]
You’ll never feel happy, until you try

Everybody needs this
Everybody needs this, happy thing
Everybody needs this, everybody needs this, happy thing

This song is not a gospel song
This song is not a funk song
This song is not a wrong song
This song is a real song aaaah!

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try! [x4]
I need to be happy! Every, everyday!
And every night!
Everybody!
Again and again!
You know what? you’ll never never never never never never never never feel..

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try …

Never never never,

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try! [x4]
Haheheuhoho…

 

The choreography and this man’s dancing in this video… WOW WOW WOW. #EdSheeran #MusicVideo

Helloooooo again….

Back on air, back online and back finding some SICK videos. This one I must say thank you to #CrawlProject for sitting me down to watch this. I love Ed Sheeran’s music anyway, so it didn’t take much to sit me down to watch one of his videos. But wow, I was NOT expecting THIS. It is genius.

The dancer’s name is Phillip Chbeeb… follow him on twitter here

Don’t (Ed Sheeran song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Don’t” is a song recorded by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran for his second studio album, x (2014). It was initially planned as the album’s lead single, but was passed over in favour of “Sing“.[4] It was instead released to iTunes on 13 June 2014 as the second “instant grat” promotional single from x.[5] “Don’t” officially impacted US contemporary hit radio on 15 July 2014[6] and was released independently on 24 August 2014 as the album’s second single.

“Don’t” peaked at number 8 on the UK Singles Chart. In the US, it became Sheeran’s first top 10 single. It also made the top 10 in eight other countries. It has sold 1,464,000 copies in the US as of January 2015.[7]

Music video

An accompanying music video was released on YouTube on 4 August 2014. The video was directed by Emil Nava and follows a dancer (Philip Chbeeb from I.aM.mE) going from poverty to wealth.[12] Sheeran makes a brief drive-by cameo appearance. 4Music called it a “compelling watch”.[13]

With a video THIS great… it’s easy to see why, at the time of writing this, it had over 43,300,000 views.
