The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

The hills are alive with the sound of music. One of the most beloved movie musicals of all time. And how could it not be? Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Rogers and Hammerstein. It delivers every time. It’s an epic story with incredible music set in a pivotal time in our recent history. “Edelweiss”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Maria”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, “My Favorite Things”, “Something Good”, “So Long, Farewell”. What’s not to love, high on a hill.
And recently The Sound of Music Live was watched by millions and met with mixed reviews. Live musical theatre is still proving to be as relevant and entertaining as ever. They are already planning for a live musical for 2014.

Prep and Landing is an animated special that originally aired in 2009. Created by the Walt Disney Animation Studios. It tells the story of 2 elves, Wayne and Lanny, as they discover and rediscover their purpose. Clever and action filled. A sequel, Operation: Secret Santa was created in 2010 as well as Prep and Landing: Naughty vs Nice in 2011. These short films are incredibly original, smart and heartwarming.

Short Term 12 is one of my favorite films of the year. It tells the story of a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. It’s showing up on some critic’s top 10 lists. I found it to be moving, funny, heartbreaking, honest.
Had to share this video as a friend posted it online yesterday. Having watched it at least 5 times I can honestly say…wouldn’t it be great if we could all dance like no one is watching.
Or dance like no one is watching and then have it broadcast on television.
I want to be that guy.
