This Was Funny

Saw this and just had to share it. 

Make it a great week!

Mamma Mia!

The other night I had the chance to see Mamma Mia! at The Tobin Center. 

It’s the show Farewell Tour and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of seeing it at one of my favorite places. 

All I can say is WOW! What a show. 

I love ABBA, I liked the movie, so I was really looking forward to a good show. And I wasn’t disappointed. 

Right from the opening note, it was amazing. 

If you don’t know anything about the play, here’s a little snippet of what it’s about. 

The long-running Broadway musical Mamma Mia!, which ended its New York run earlier this season, has announced that it is embarking on a “final farewell tour” in the 2016-17 season that will hit some 30 cities across North America.

The show, which is built around the songs of ABBA composers Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, closed on Broadway September 12, 2015, after a 14-year run. It is still playing in London’s West End, continuing an 18-year run.

But my most favorite part of the play was the music. There is just something about ABBA music that makes you happy. 

Here is the list of music that the sang and danced to. Not only on the stage, but in my chair. 

  1. Overture/Prologue
  2. Honey, Honey
  3. Money, Money, Money
  4. Thank You For The Music
  5. Mamma Mia
  6. Chiquitita
  7. Dancing Queen
  8. Lay All Your Love On Me
  9. Super Trouper
  10. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
  11. The Name Of The Game
  12. Voulez-Vous
  13. Entr’acte
  14. Under Attack
  15. One Of Us
  16. S.O.S.
  17. Does Your Mother Know
  18. Knowing Me, Knowing You
  19. Our Last Summer
  20. Slipping Through My Fingers
  21. The Winner Takes It All
  22. Take A Chance On Me
  23. I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do
  24. I Have A Dream

My favorite songs would be:

  • Lay All Your Love On Me
  • The Winner Takes It All
  • Take A Chance On Me
  • Waterloo

I’m going old school on the video.

I’m so glad that I went to see the play. 

Now, I’m off to watch the movie on my phone. 

The Challenger

“The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of God.”

– President Ronald Reagan

Movie — The Martian

“Hey, there.”

Recently, I finally got the chanc to watch the movie, “The Martian” (2015) starring Matt Damon.

The Martian is a 2015 American science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel The Martian. Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who is mistakenly presumed dead and left behind on Mars. The film depicts his struggle to survive and others’ efforts to rescue him. The film’s ensemble cast also features Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie, Donald Glover and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

I liked the movie, but I think I liked the music more. 

Got to love music from the 70’s. 

  • “Turn the Beat Around” by Vicki Sue Robinson
  • “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer
  • “Rock the Boat” by The Hues Corporation
  • “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by Thelma Houston
  • “Starman” by David Bowie
  • “Waterloo” by ABBA
  • “Love Train” by The O’Jays
  • “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor (end credits)

Here’s one of my favorites. 

I Smell Cake*

Well, today was a sad day for an icon from youth. 

Mary Tyler Moore, whose witty and graceful performances on two top-rated television shows in the 1960s and ’70s helped define a new vision of American womanhood, died on Wednesday in Greenwich, Conn. She was 80.

I was a fan of her show “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” 


I watched the reruns of “The Dick Van Dyke,” but know her better from her own show. 


So sad that our stars from are youth are passing away. 

At least we will always have her TV shows and movies to watch. 

And here is one of my Top 10 TV Theme songs…


R.I.P. Mary Tyler Moore. 

You did turn the world on with your smile. 

Daily Laugh

This is too funny. 

Make it a great day. 

Song of the Day

I will forever be an 80’s child!

Here one of my favorites from 1985. 

“Better Be Good To Me” by Tina Turner.
