Tuesday Tunes: So Ein Schöner Tag!

– October is almost over and sadly, I have been so busy that I don’t have one moment of arm-linked singing under an Oktoberfest tent nor a single sip from a beer stein to show for it. Feeling nostalgic, I scoured youtube in search of a bit of lederhosen fun until I came across this video. “So Ein Schöner Tag/ Fliegerlied” isn’t a traditional Oktoberfest song like “Ein Prosit” (Oans- Zwoa- Drei- G’SUFFA!) but over the past 5 years or...

Tasty Tuesday & Tuesday Tunes: Sweet Potato Latkes & Deva Premal

The first time I saw a video by Matt Harding from wherethehellismatt.com, I cried. No really. I sobbed like a baby. Okay, maybe not sobbed, but I definitely cried. At first, I thought it was because I missed travel and was sad and jealous to see this guy doing what I wanted to do. But I realized it wasn’t that, after all, his videos show him dancing around like a bleating fool, arms flailing in the air…feet stomping about and...
