Success!

OK, so Egan will hate this (the song and the cats) and Diesel might hate this (singer somewhat Bluntesque) but I must joyfully proclaim my YouTube success from the mountaintops. Or at least from the chair in the office.

Basically this is a love note to my family. I apologise that it's not more relevant to the Blogging scene, but there you are. Stand back, World. The only things standing between myself and World Domination now are spray cheese and shoelaces. Oh and lots and lots of Jell-O™.


Hmmm. Everything seems to flash a millisecond too late. More tweakage required I guess.

ooooo. ahhhhh. *sniff* and bra-vo!

The sky's the limit, baby! I hope you've got your coutourier lined up. I'm seeing red carpet...

ARM said...

Wow! I'm sitting here bawling like a baby for some reason (I've been doing this often for no reason all week). I love that video! I though the transitions were pretty sharp with the song.

egan said...

Why must you parade those kids around for the world to see? Really, I get it. You have kids and you're proud of them. You have cats too, just great.

Don't you think that little video of yours could have been summed up in maybe a 15 second clip? It would make my life easier. I'm just saying. The music made me want to yank my eyeballs out.

ARM said...

Egan! If it was only 15 seconds, then I wouldn't have worked up a good cry.

Candace, someday I'll upload my video I made of just my cat. I wonder if Egan will say mean things about it. I might cry if he does, but then, what else is new.

egan said...

15 seconds? Are you telling me this video made you cry Amanda? Are you a human? There's no way anyone should cry after viewing this four minute plus clip. Cats, cats, cats. Amanda, if you post a video of cats, I will unlink you faster than you can say "I love grocery stores". Just you keep that in mind.

ARM said...

Everything makes me cry right now. Even this four minute plus clip.

My video is of cats is of a cat. I can't believe you would threaten de-linking me. I just don't even know what to say to that.

tshsmom said...

Beautiful job, Candace!
It's a good thing you had all those pics of your kids laying down, so they'd match the music. ;)

ARM said...

And I can't even write. I meant ISN'T of cats it's of A cat. JC.

egan said...

Amanda - okay, I figure I should give up the charade. I was totally messing with you. The damn clip made me cry too. You'd have to be a robot not to cry at this well done piece. It shows how much Candace loves her kids and who can fault her? They're adorable and her love for them shines through.

I was just being a dick Amanda. Don't worry, I think you and Candace are pretty special peeps. Ignore my grocery store comment and idle threat.

ARM said...

Along with my emotional jag, I've become extremely gullible too. Because for a minute, I thought you were really being that mean!

egan said...

It's all good. I was just poking fun. Thankfully Candace didn't take me seriously either. Well that's probably because I tipped her off via instant messenger that I was going to act mean. No more acting, Candace did a fantastic job on that bit.

egan said...

Candace, I love the World Domination label for this post. Can you expand on that please?

ARM said...

You're a good actor. Have you ever thought of being on the stage?

She did do a fantastic job! Bravo Candace!

Logophile said...

Awwwwww
sniff sniff
I love this,
I love you,
I love your kids.
If the world were mine, I would give it to you.

egan said...

Amanda, are you asking me if I've considered acting or Candace? I actually have, but for some reason never pursued it. I've been in a couple plays and that's all I have to show for it.

If you were asking Candace, my bad. Is there an American Idol for actors? Maybe I should get to work on that.

Barnes said...

Beautiful, C. A great video.
I liked it very much.

Winters would probably come out with some kind of cheap innuendo about you writing "more tweakage required".

Fortunately that won't happen, as he's been nipped in the bud. ;)

egan said...

R.I.P. Winters!

Candace said...

Joe - Thank you!! I couldn't have done it without you. :) And yes, a coutourier will be required, as I'm somewhat sartorially challenged. :) Or maybe I can start a new trend.


Amanda - well thank you very much. :)

Isn't Egan a naughty boy? Yes, he did tell me ahead of time that he was going to drop a shred-ripper here. Such a bad boy! ^_^ Don't you think he deserves a spanking?
I have some rope we could tie him up with. It's nice, soft rope.

And don't feel too bad for falling for it. I fall for one of his gags pretty much every day. :-P

I want to see your cat vid. >^_^<

Tshsmom - Thank you. :) I had been listening to the song ad infinitum and when I decided to make a "short test project" I thought of all the pics I have of my kids flopped around on stuff. ^_^

Amanda - strangely, I knew exactly what you meant and had to reread at least 3 times to see that you hadn't said it in the first place, LOL!

Egan - that's an interesting Q you ask about the world domination tag. I'm glad to see that you caught that. It clearly indicates that there will be more, I think. And I'm looking for bright people like you to help me in my endeavour. Contact me at 1-800-WORLDOM

Joe - Excellent! ^_^ Ah, I'd like to thank my producer, Somewhere Joe, and uh, MuNKi and my kids. :)

Arm - he does the stright-faced thing pretty well, I think. :)

Logo - Why thank you. You are too kind. I'm actually looking forward to the challenge of world domination. Perhaps you would care to join me? ^_^

Egan - I have asked you to act for me, but perhaps you thought I was kidding. I was not. I will be making a ton of Bio clips (hopefully) and need outside material. :)

Barnes - Thank you. :) You know Winters so well. I'm glad that you can step in for him and put the words in his mouth, in much the same way that I suspect you put the thoughts in his brain. I credit you, indirectly (or perhaps directly) for his brilliant innuendos, and oh, I do so admire that last one of your own. ^_^ I would be a complete boob not to.

Egan - tho, Egan!

heh. See how it fits in so nicely with Barnes's nippage?

OW!

hurts when I pat myself on the back :-/

ARM said...

He is naughty. I'll forgive him, but if you want to punish him, I'll watch. I'm kinky like that.

Gawpo said...

I love that song!

Arm: Bawl on, sister!!!

Gawpo said...

Back to you, Candace: This video would make anyone cry. It is a Candacian Hammer Of Doom And Death, but in a way that could dominate the world with love. And I love being put to death with love.

kitkat said...

I love the "conked out on Eeyore" one and "reading a book upside down" one the best. I swear your kids must be robots - no one's kids are that cute.

Logophile said...

I would LOVE to join your quest!
It's long been an aspiration of mine as well. I was just afraid it would cut into my free time.
Check it out (I hope I am doing this right for once)
Taking over the world

Logophile said...

You have to scroll down to Feb 11th or so to get the full plan :P

Pierre Mangez aka Polyergos said...

sorry i haven't been around! loved the video. just busy working on my schtuff. :)

Candace said...

Amanda - I bet he's not expecting the Spanish Inquisition. Ready the comfy chair!! }:->

Gawpo - Killing with Love - it's a new martial art style. We specialise in sneak attack hugs, swift and sudden kisses, and the embrace of no resistance. Instead of a kihop, one uses a loud kissy noise to accompany action. :-P

Kitkat - Those make me laugh. :) Thank you for your kind words. :)

Logo - little did I know that you already had a plan! This is most excellent. Have, you, by chance, already acquired spray cheese? I have Jell-O™ though I'm not sure there's enough yet. I will eagerly sign on as a minion since you already have a plot set in motion. ^_^

Poly - Thanks, Dude. :) You have a LOT of stuff out there. I watched the Greek TV interview - hadn't seen that one before - how cool is that?!? I have a long way to go, but at least I've officially started now getting something out there now, rather than just having a script lying around. Now on to the real vids! :)

egan said...

I'm still waiting for the acting work to flow. My assistant hasn't been contacted yet. Please let me know what needs to be done. Thank you very much for your time Candace.

Candace said...

Right! I will get with your people. Better yet, I'll have my people get with your people while we're doing lunch. ^_^

Jay said...

You know, that just may be the most beautiful thing that there is in life, I'm glad you shared.

Candace said...

Wow, thank you, Jay. :) That means a lot.

egan said...

What Jay said x infinity

Mr. Fabulous said...

Your house is pretty messy.

All kidding aside though, that was completely awesome and beautiful. Thank you!

Diesel said...

Very cool. Beautiful family. And I don't hate the song. It's not Bluntesque at all.

Candace said...

Egan - my comment went poof, so I'll try again.

YES you can have a role. You can stop sucking up now. On second though, keep on.:)

Mr. Fab - You don't know the half of it, LOL! It's creative chaos. Yeah, that's the ticket. . . ^_^

Thank you very much. :)

Diesel - Thank you so much. :) And not a nauseating song, then? Cool! :)

Gawpo said...

I think Egan wants to act in a movie. Still not sure, though.

Candace said...

I don't know. I don't always get a good read on these things. . .

cindra said...

Precious, Candace. What a tribute to your family. Beautiful little peeps.

Gawpo said...

Make a French movie. And have Egan in a little box at the bottom righthand corner translating.

Candace said...

Cindra - Thank you very much! :)

Gawpo - great idea! Too bad I don't know much French. Maybe Corner Egan could translate into French.^_^
