This Britney Spears video that is super fabulous.

This video gives you a plan to drive free cars. It delves into the topic of lots of people having car payments ALL THE TIME, and how if you invest a $475 car payment every month for 30 years (into a mutual fund), you could end up a millionaire. The interest on said mutual fund will help you buy cars in the $15k-$18k range for the rest of your life. It’s pretty interesting.

Did I share this before? I don’t remember. Either way, watch this video on walking for a half hour and seeing how it changes your possibilities for health outcomes.

Joan Rivers + RuPaul = amazing.

Everyone knows I cannot resist a “random person gets on stage with famous musical artist and kills it” video. So here’s Billy Joel and a random dude named Michael performing “New York State of Mind.”

Alexander McQueen, Fall/Winter 2013 Presentation. A bit short but still stunning.

Steve Casino, painter of nuts. Trent Reznor posted this video since it focuses on the creation of a nut that looks like him. It’s awesome, I totally want one.

In my fantasy world, I have a house that is totally organized. I watched this video about the “Most Organized Home in America,” and while this might be a bit much for me, it did inspire some changes in my small apartment.

This is a series of stories told by kids. It makes me laugh.

Photo of the week – from my photos of macarons from Creme Delicious that I shot a few weeks ago when I received them for Valentine’s Day. They were stunning.

That’s all for this edition of Sights & Sounds.

Mariah Carey, Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and little kids performing “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It is fantastic.

Sights & Sounds 34: Whitney Houston Edition

by Jamie Sanford on February 12, 2012

Sights and Sounds 34: Whitney Houston Edition

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Whitney Houston yesterday, as many of you probably were as well. I know that not everyone has the same experience or memories associated with Whitney and her music, but I have a lot. I had a teenage sister in the 80s, so pop music was king. I have a mom who was OBSESSED with The Bodyguard and the soundtrack, and so I have to start this out with a video of “Queen of the Night” from the soundtrack to The Bodyguard.

For those of you who do not frequent bars with dance music, know that Whitney has been alive and well in the club for years with remixes of this song – “It’s Not Right, But It’s OK.

[youtube 6J538b-OLRU]

This song too, also a club favorite. Check out the video for “Heartbreak Hotel.”

[youtube xEmdW3_bi4c]

One of my earlier favorites from Whitney Houston is “I’m Your Baby Tonight.” Check out the video.

[youtube 0H-jLOoz-YY]

Whitney also did a duet in 1998 with one of my all-time favorite artists, George Michael.  Check out “If I Told You That.”

[youtube 7EjfbyCpAxA]

Naturally, I have to end this post with Whitney Houston’s epic recording of the Dolly Parton song, “I Will Always Love You.” If nothing else, this song guarantees that Whitney Houston will live on for a long time to come.

[youtube 8QaI-M9sxW4]

Rest in peace, Whitney.

Everyone, please share your favorite Whitney songs and memories in the comments!
