MAKE IT COUNT will be my Mantra for 2018

I will have a lot of “performance” related moments this year, and before each, I will be telling myself to “make it count”! Some of these moments will be very small, like playing through a piano piece without mistake during practice at home, or on a public piano. However, some will be big and important, like the higher than annual average number of big consequence decisions I expect to make this year.

I picked MAKE IT COUNT over IT’S SHOW TIME because some of these bigger moments will be serious in a rational way to finalize something, rather than an emotional perk up before a “performance” to come. However, I imagine there’ll be lots of moments where I’ll start out with IT’S SHOW TIME, followed by MAKE IT COUNT, as a double mantra. 

Penelope LePrevost in Darth Vader Costume for Equestrian

Have you geeks and nerds seen this? I’m sure the really hardcore ones have. Others probably not unless you paid attention to equestrian charity events.

On December 5th in Villepinte, France, world class equestrian show jumper Penelope LePrevost rode as Darth Vader in full costume! She was in the Darth horse role, if you will. 🙂

Now that’s a picture!

Furthermore, her daughter Erin also rode as Princess Leia.

Yes, the horse is strong in this one! 😉

I can’t find any video of the event online, but I wondered if the French went crazy as North Americans would have. They should do that in North America. It would bring down the house!

May the horse be with you, Penelope!

No, seriously! Cause if it weren’t, you’d be falling off the thing! lol

Are You Impressed By Super Bowl Half Time Shows Any More?

Another year, another Super Bowl and another crappy Super Bowl half-time show.

I don’t know if there’s too much hype, or that our expectations had been weened in years past to expect a lot of half time shows, but I think whoever has been setting up these things have just been making crappy decisions for several years now.

For example, was there any singing at this year’s half time show? Sure, they hit a few notes, but there wasn’t a lot of it, and what was there was weak!

Somebody get me a good half time show one of these years, would ya? Or just can it and have something stupid. At least our expectations won’t be raised and failed miserably!

That was Beyonce bad! And more of a bust than previous years, even, pun intended!

How was Madonna’s Roman Cheerleading Super Bowl Half-time Show? Poll.

The Super Bowl half-time shows are a spectacle on their own. In recent years, it seems they’re only memorable for bad reasons, though. For example, the Black Eyed Peas’ 80s TRON show, the Who’s WHAT? show, and don’t even get me started on Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction!

So this year, they had Madonna. With her, they brought on the Romans, which somehow turned into a cheerleading squad, with a tinge of gospel at the end.

What did you think?
