I know I should probably be doing something like talking about my resolutions or my top ten something or reviewing my favorite blogs for this year but I am in no state of mind to do so any time soon. ROFL. You're probably getting plenty of that kind of stuff from everywhere else on the internet anyway. I'm sure you'll be fine with me skipping out on that now. Maybe I'll do that when I hit my one year mark of blogging daily.
My brother and I have been left at home and we're trying to do what we can with no supervision- lemme tell you right now that it sucks because my folks can be perfectionists and that's perfectly understandable in a situation like this so we're going nuts trying to figure out what they meant from one minute phone calls. It was such a good idea for me to grab some frozen mocha drink from Panera this morning. I am so wired it almost isn't funny. Almost. My hands are trembling as I type this right now. XD
But, I don't want my last post of this calender year to be completely boring. So I'm going to share some music mashup videos from YouTube. I haven't shared clips or music in a while! These are particularly fun, imho (in my honest opinion), because they are reviews of the Top 25 US Billboard Pop songs from the past couple of years by DJ Earworm. Yummy imagery, I know. :P
Let's go from 2007 - 2010 to build up some suspense even with the colors of the video frames. My personal favorite United State of Pop is from 2009. :D And I respectfully disagree with the colors. Especially from the past three years. To me, 2008 was totally about the coral pink, 2009 about the teal/ turquoise, 2010 about that dark plum-wine color, and I'm open to 2011 even though I think it's a little soon to do a pink hue again.
According to Pantone's Color Institute, the Colors of the Years were:
The icing on the cake is that the videos are pretty great mashups of the offical music videos and the cherry on the cake is that you can download each of these songs for free from his website! I included the playlists that he put out underneath the videos if you're curious and click on the year to go to his pages for those songs to grab them. Check him out! He does some great other remixes as well.
