Seth Rudetsky makes me happy. i want to be his best friend. Nothing makes me feel better faster than his deconstructions. Tonight I watched
this one, this one, and this one.
Adele can saaaang! hearing the story behind each of her songs is just inspiring.
she loved to dance. what drives me crazy are most ballet dancers are such perfectionists that they forget why they love it. i hope i never forget.
obsessed with song, choreography, and dancer. makes me merry happy.
this first which got me hooked. then saw this and just tripped me out.
i love that
audra and idina can sing the same song and for it to sound phenomenal in both of there styles.
can’t get enough of this girl. GIVE HER HER OWN SHOW!
Came upon this vid as i’ve been prepping for Annie. That key change is perfection.
this song makes me want to meet that person i’m supposed to spend the rest of my life with.
i love youtube.

Here’s another fun run-into-a-star-story from my last New York trip last month.
It was right after the first cut for Rockettes (which was the most nervous I had been the entire audition process.) I was beyond beyond excited to make the first cut! So they told those who made the cut to come back in two hours. I decided to go run through Time Square to find somewhere to eat. Well who else do I see but the irrepressible,
Seth Rudetsky. I’ve shared some of his deconstructions on this blog before so some of you may already be a little familiar with his brilliance. Here’s a vid of him deconstructing Idina’s amazing vocals. (Since all you fellow Gleeks are seeing her right now, I thought I’d post her vid of his!)
So when I ran into him he was so beyond nice. Told him what a fan of his I was and how I watch his vlogs and have read both of his books. I got a pic with him but he didn’t approve of the first and made us take a second pic! Such a great and talented man… I hope I get to see one of his chatterbox sessions while I’m in NY this summer.
Since it was on my 101 things to do in 1001 days list, i thought I’d knock this one out:

Here’s my deconstruction of the Leading Actor and Actress Medleys from the Tommy Tune Awards. Thanks again to [Jason] for the fabulous video editing. You make me look so cute, Jeffy!
Hope this isn’t too boring. Totes 🙂
