Wednesday On The Web is semi-regular feature here at Something Catchy featuring the great things that catch our eye online.

Today, I have just one thing to show you. It’s a video and it’s absolutely worth your time.

I have to thank my sister for showing me this video.

In light of the beautiful point of the film, I have something to tell you. You, my readers and friends, are beautiful (and handsome). You effortlessly rock your own personal style. You are so talented! I’m so blessed to know each and every one of you.

Do you know someone who needs to see this? You can send them this video by using the buttons below this post. Go spread some smiles!

We’re still getting through our backlogs of TV shows from the No-Spend Month, and one of the shows we’re behind on is Saturday Night Live.  (Yes, we’re nerds and record each new show.)

The show we watched this weekend had Russell Brand hosting. I think he’s funny and a rather brilliant comic (although profane at times in his stand-up).  Several weeks ago, a friend of mine forwarded a link to me on Facebook. Jeff hadn’t seen it, and I made him sit and watch it after SNL was done.

Let me set you a scene. There’s a film version of The Tempest that features Russell Brand and Helen Mirren (she’s a subject for another post). One of the first days in rehearsals, the director asks Russell about his character, Trinculo… and here’s what happens!

Unscripted glorious monologuing. Go ahead, watch it again. You’ll be even more impressed.

And because that video is full of amazing, it gets it’s own WOTW post. (Well… almost. A theater company wants to do a production of Terminator 2 using ONLY lines of Shakespeare text. Brilliant!)

What do you think of Russell Brand? or what has caught your eye this week?

Work has been crazy and I’ve been a bit overwhelmed when getting home, so it’s been (and probably will be) a bit of a quiet week.

Our regular Wednesday On The Web series features the awesomeness that is the internetz. Today… I only have one thing for you (see above… crazy!)

Another blogger posted this video this week, and it was just the smile that I needed. The weather guys keep predicting more gloom and doom, ice, snow, sleet and everything else – and I’m SO ready for some warmer weather. We’re nearing April already! This isn’t comparable to flowers and the smell of dirt… but it’ll get me through another day.

So tell me… what’s got you fascinated this week?

Random Monday – Go!

* My pastor referenced stuff from my blog in his sermon on Sunday. I don’t know which is cooler, that I was mentioned in a sermon or that my pastor reads my blog (Hi, Wally!)

* Got a new ‘do today. I love what a new haircut can do. I was going to link to a YouTube vid of one of my favorite songs, “Life After Haircuts” but there isn’t one video of the song! Fail, YouTube, Fail.

* There aren’t leaves on the trees across the street from my house, so I can sit at my window and watch the baby deer hang out across the stream. The brush is too dense to get a good photo though… but so cute!

* My maternity leave is in its final days… I return to work on Wednesday. I find myself saying “This is the last time I’ll be able to do such and such before I go back to work.”  Very depressing. But then I get the song in my head, and it makes me giggle:

* Went to a home expo yesterday and attended a wine tasting. For two bucks, they sat me down at a table and I got to try different wines. Then I found out that they wanted to sell me my favorite by the CASE. Like I have the money for a case of wine. My favorite turned out to be about twenty bucks a bottle. I didn’t come home with a case, but I did write down the type of wine – so while I can’t get that vintage from that vineyard, I’ve got a good start.

* Said wine-tasting event holds HOME wine tasting parties. You get together with your friends, they bring wine. Like Tupperware, only cooler. Trying to decide if a) my friends would like this and b) how much it would cost!

* Someday I want to be SO popular that people post inane comments on my blog posts like “I can’t believe I am first!” or “First comment, yay!”. And then I re-read the blog posts of people that popular and realize my wit and charm have a ways to go…

at 12:01AM today, it was the official end of our no-spend month. We’ll have a recap of the month forthcoming, but it was delayed due to a massive migraine on the part of my writing partner.
There were a few video games played and I’ve caught up on a month of the Office episodes this afternoon. But we didn’t rush out and buy fast food and slurpees – I think our tastes have changed this month!

So in lieu of a real recap today, I give you a great SNL skit about money…

Welcome to Wednesday On The Web – where I pull together the fun/awesome/weird things I’ve found online.

This is a very short Wednesday On The Web this week – was going to pull a great post together yesterday, but with the car drama – I’ve been a bit busy. Next week, I promise to make up for it!

Today, I’m going to share the glory of YouTube.

1: I made an off-hand comment to Jeff about how he wasn’t ever romantic. “Here, I have a song just for you!” he declared:

Romantic, no?

This is the Axis of Awesome. They’re an Aussie band… and I have no idea why they haven’t gotten popular over on this side of the world. They’re SO funny! It’s worth it to watch every single one of their videos (although a couple are not necessarily appropriate for children!).

2: I really can’t help but share another song. Really. They are truly awesome. (There’s a foul word or two in here… fair warning)

I had to watch these again, writing this post. Did I mention awesome? Yeah.

3: Another find of my husband’s. This one should blow you away.

Incredible, no? (And cute!) Impressive! And then I saw this:

4: Just listen.

I have no words for his talent. If you’ve got the time, there’s quite a few more.

5: On a different note, Jeff loved this – and sang along for most of it!

Hope your Wednesday is better than mine! What are you loving online this week?

With great apologies to the amazing Stephanie for borrowing her idea, here’s my Random Monday.

1: Remember the warm days of last week? Those are no more. Yesterday, we got 6+ inches in as many hours… and then it kept snowing overnight. February is such a tease.

2: Why is it that when you’re ready to follow the advice to ‘sleep when your baby sleeps’, your baby decides NOT to sleep?

3: I’ve made cookies twice in the last four days (with my new mixer!). The first batch was already eaten, and I have multiple requests to taste test future batches.

4: Jeff loves golf. It’s rubbed off on me a bit, although I play for fun since my scores will NEVER come out of the triple digits. We’ve watched our fair share of tournaments on TV, and I have a few players that I’ve liked and cheered for. These players have either a) very good looking or b) have a great back story.  I was flipping through Jeff’s Golf Digest (which is often very boring to me) and came across this photo:

This is NOT the kind of photo you see in a golf magazine, on Golf TV or anything of the like. So I stopped to read the article. This guy is Ben Crane. Apparently, he’s a very slow and mostly boring golf player. Boring in the way your dear old uncle takes twenty minutes to chart out his next chess move. Smart, but not rollicking good times.  Then he made a video…

There’s a second video that you can see on his website that’s also hilarious. He’s now my new favorite player. Anyone who can make fun of golf that way and get good press about it is a winner in my book. (He also just won a tournament at the beginning of the year – Go Ben!)

5: I haven’t gotten my hair cut in almost five months. First it was tough to get out because I was grossly pregnant, working full-time and dealing with doctors who freaked out over everything. Now to try to plan time to get out either with P (what does one do with a baby while you’re getting your hair cut?) or work around Jeff’s school schedule so that he’ll be home with her. I’m two and a half weeks away from going back to work, and it’s my goal to get it done before then. I don’t need to be sporting a mom-do ponytail every day at work!
