Ok, ok. I apologize because I don't have any crafts to share with you right now, but I swear I'm working on them! I've been out of town many times this past month and haven't been able to spend as much time knitting/crocheting/whatever than I have before. The break has been both good and bad - good in that I am able to avoid burnout and bad because now I feel as if I have a ton of catching up to do. With that said, here's another random post featuring a group of youtube videos :).

Whether you love her or hate her, you have to have an opinion on Lady Gaga. Sure she's a pop machine, but maybe the point of all her music, crazy antics, ridiculously creative stage performances is that the pop music culture has become too cookie cutter and predictable. Her music may fit the sound of pop music, but her performances, music videos, and fashion are what keep people talking. I have a prediction with Lady Gaga that once her Gaga persona gets to be outgrown or grow cold, it will be "killed off" in favor of a newer, fresher one (a la Madonna). Who knows. I can't help but be fascinated with Gaga.

As an example, here are some of her music videos. Most of her videos are so over the top, that you just can't help but watch them for the first time and think "...what the hell was that" (at least that's what I tend to say to myself). With more viewings, they may not necessarily make more sense (well, maybe a little bit - if that's possible) but they are so innately creative that I can't help but keep looking for more.

Just an FYI, I am not responsible for the ridiculousness of these videos, so consider yourself warned! With that said, join me in saying "...what the hell?" as I post some Gaga-licious videos!

Alejandro (released today, June 8th, 2010)

Paparazzi (currently at 22 millions views)

Telephone (at 31 million views)

And my favorite, Bad Romance (now at 222 million views and counting)

In the random spirit of this post, here's a website featuring pancakes in various forms!

Bacon and Eggs pancakes!

A biplane pancake?

And lastly...TETRIS-CAKES!

In that vein, also head on over to one of my most favorite blogs ever, Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Horribly, Hilariously Wrong! I can spend HOURS on this site, no joke, and still keep coming back for more.

Example. An adorably cute baby cake!

"What's so bad about this cake?" one might ask. It's the cutting of the cake that the problem occurs...

Anyone want a piece of a baby cake? I think I'll pass...

Alright, I'm done rehashing other blogs, haha. I'll leave you with a picture of one reason why I enjoy living near the Great Lakes! Taken from my camera phone.
