MMM… Hercules and Some News

28 Apr

Welcome to Mirth and Music Monday.

Or as we call it on Twitter #MirthMusicMon.

.

I had planned on using something else today, but it lacked that little something. I don’t know exactly what, but it was definitely, eh, something.

After a little wandering around I came across this first song and did some laughing, then a suggested video was one of my all time favorite Disney songs and I just had to put these together.  🙂

I hope you enjoy the pair. 😀

Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m a romantic. *sigh* 😀

Now for the news.

I am sad to say that we will be losing the weekly attendance of the lovely ReGi McClain. She already had a crowded schedule and now something else has been added. Something had to give, and I have to agree with her, parenting is more important than a Monday giggle fest. She is also bowing out as the main caretaker of the linky. She asked if I would take on the privilege and I accepted.

So now I’m responsible for this fun thing we call Mirth and Music Monday. This should be interesting.  😉

.

That being said, we are always open to more people like you to play our weekly game with us. If you’re a blogger, or have been thinking about it, now is a great time for you to get in on the ground floor of this amazing opportunity.

Ahem… Yeah, I would stink as an infomercial personality.

Seriously, though, if you read these and think you could do it, go ahead and give it a try. We would love the company.  🙂

Rosebud, over and out.

Have a Great Week, Everyone!

Could My Writing Ever Be Good Enough To Inspire Songs?

15 Aug

Yeah, I know. It’s a strange topic.

But, here I am, asking the question.

(Really, I’m not trying to come across as pretentious or egotistical.)

It’s mostly because I have this song stuck in my head:

.

That song got me to wondering if any of my poetry, or eventual novels will end up inspiring someone out there to write a song about the idea behind it.

Could I possibly become a good enough poet that my last name alone would carry weight in literary circles (like Byron, Shakespeare and so many others).

Would it be slightly possible that my works could eventually be nodded to in sculpture and paintings, referenced in school books as someone to study?

This is a pretty hefty line of what if’s…but seriously, what if?

What kinds of questions and what-if scenarios (concerning your work/art) run through your brain?

Do you play with the idea, or do you immediately slap it down as an impossibility or flight of fancy?
