My Man in Black

If you'll permit me a brief little proud personal post, here's my boyfriend James singing "Ring of Fire" last night with his class from the Brooklyn Guitar School (video and occasional voice accompaniment by me):



James is a professional video director and editor, and he gives wonderful gifts -- for instance, these two videos for birthdays past, one from 2006 and one for this year. (And yes, those are the real celebrities.)



The signoff line in the one above kills me -- the perfect example of someone living up to his own cliche.



(James got me to walk in front of the greenscreen for this one by telling me he needed to test out the focus depth of his camera. I do still trust him -- just not with a greenscreen.)

Lastly, I uploaded some photos from Election Night at Rockefeller Center and randomness throughout the year to my Facebook account.

  2. The Ring of Fire video reminded me of the Three Broomsticks. I know there aren't any known instances of people singing there, but the atmosphere looks so warm, happy, lively and Butterbeer-ish!

    I'm off to see the other two videos.

  3. That was insanely awesome! You do get to be proud and tickled several shades of pink with such coolness.

    And good for James for learning guitar. My hub started taking lessons a little over a year ago and has been burning through classical, gypsy jazz and surf guitar. This year he's going to take a guitar building class.

    Keep living up to the hotttness!
