What’s Rebecca’s Future?

If you haven’t heard about Rebecca Black yet, where have you been hiding?  She’s a 13 year old singer (who started vocal lessons when she was 10).  She’s recently had a video produced by Ark Music Factory for a song called Friday and posted on YouTube.  And that video has gone viral.

Currently the video has been viewed more than 17 million times since the middle of February when it was originally posted (most of those views coming within the last week).  See the video below.

Parties for Men

When my wife’s not throwing a “party for women,” she’s going to a “party for women.”  And frankly, I don’t think that’s really all that fair.  Think about it.  How many different types of theme parties do women have.  Well, there’s Tupperware parties and PartyLite (candles) parties.  There’s Epicure (spices) parties and Norwex (cleaning products) parties.  There’s parties for jewelery and parties for the baby sitting co-op.  There’s parties for make-up and parties for hair products.  There’s parties for lingerie and parties for clothing.  There’s even parties about cooking, scrapbooking and sewing.  I’ll stop there because I’m starting to sound like Dr. Seuss.  But you can see, the list goes on and on.

And what parties do men have?  I’m not talking about going out to the bar or out for chicken wings.  I’m talking about having “a dozen guys over to your house”-type parties – just guys with a theme.  Perhaps guys can consider watching a hockey/baseball/football/basketball game a party.  There’s sports pool “parties” but those usually just lead to arguing about who’s the better player in any given sport and then there’s the infamous bark of “you’re taking too long to make a pick.. just GO.”  And if you really stretch the party concept, you may ask a few friends over to help you move something heavy or fix something you need another set of hands for which leads to a few beers afterwards.  But that’s it!  Come on men, isn’t it time we join the revolution and come up with own party?  Just one’s all I’m asking for.
