Love has no labels

A lot of us make snap judgments based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. Yet most of us aren’t even conscious of our prejudice. That’s why it’s called implicit bias. Can you spot implicit bias in yourself?  Take the quiz, lovehasnolabels.com.

Kylie Minogue Mighty Aphrodite tour

Kylie MinogueLast Saturday I came home after a fun night out but couldn’t sleep so I started watching a broadcast of the 2011 Kylie Minogue Mighty Aphrodite tour.  Kylie kicked off her US tour in Boston in late April 2011 and watching the broadcast brought back many happy memories and made me realize how much I would like to see her back here performing.

What was one of your favorite live performances of all time?

Saturday night video: SNL Serial Parody

OMG this is hilarious.  The SNL skit appeared during the holidays when I was out of the country so much thanks to my friend Tracey for telling me about it.   I was absolutely addicted to the Serial Podcast and this is brilliantly done.

Christina Aguilera “Wheel of Musical Impressions” on Jimmy Fallon

Last night season eight of The Voice premiered (does this show ever go off air?) and Christina Aguilera is back once again as a coach.  To promote the show she joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.  Jimmy asked her to play “Wheel of Musical Impressions” where she had to channel the likes of Cher, Brittany and Shakira.  She was flawless and perhaps at her best singing The Folger’s jingle as Cher, but even Brittany fans are likely to love her version of how Ms. Spears might sing “This Little Piggy”.  Say what you will but sitting down without any heads up she does a better live impersonation of Brittany Spears than Brittany could.

Saturday night video: I want it that way

Here is another video from Post Modern Jukebox.  This remake of the Backstreet Boys hit I Want It That Way, features Shoshana Bean and I have to admit, despite a slow start, I really love this version and I hope you do too.

Have a great Saturday night.
