I thought I’d take you back a couple years with KC and the Sunshine Band. Founded in 1973 in Miami, Florida, their style includes everything from disco to funk. Most people tend to enjoy their music. Their most well known songs include the hits “That’s the Way I Like It”, “I’m Your Boogie Man”, “Get Down Tonight”. Lead vocalist is Harry Wayne Casey. The band gets its name from Harry’s last name (“KC”) and sunshine from KC’s home state of Florida (Sunshine State).
This song is not what the “crowd” is into by any means. The reason for this video is simple. This song played on the radio the other day and immediately a movie popped into my head. Any Guesses? The movie was Superbad, of course. The song plays in one of my favorite scenes in Superbad. Fogel (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) is seen here dancing with the girl of his daydreams. Needless to say it’s a good feeling. I realize that it might be just me, but I have a point. What we associate songs with is entirely up to us.
In my eyes, Superbad was and will always be a classic. I was a young and in high school when i first saw the movie, but somehow I knew it was better than it got credit for. I associate this movie with this song because LOOK AT THE PICTURE! McLovin is having the time of his life and he’s doing it to this song!
Music is what you make it. The best songs are the ones that are associated with positive feelings. That’s why I enjoy this song so much.

Scene from the movie Hot Rod: Danny McBride High-Five madness!
Danny McBride is a talented comedic actor. One of my favorites, in fact. He always seems to steal the show no matter what role he’s playing. In Hot Rod, McBride plays a minor role, but recently he has made appearances in such films as Pineapple Express and Your Highness. If you are unfamiliar with either of these films, I strongly encourage you to watch them. Especially if you’re in the mood to laugh. Check ’em out.
Don't Fear The Pump
The title says it all! It seems that experts have agreed that regardless of the increase in gasoline prices this year, prices have slowly but surely began to fall once more. It appears they’ll continue falling as the driving season approaches.
This fortunate turn of events is prompted by the fact that the price for one of the most common types of gasoline futures traded in New York has dropped by a whopping 30 cents! Going from over $3.40 a gallon at the beginning of April to just over $3 a gallon Wednesday.
Futures contracts are financial instruments that buyers and sellers of large amounts of gasoline — or any commodity — use to set prices. Analysts say the current drop in gas price should begin to appear in local gas prices at service stations over the next few weeks
The main reason for lower gasoline futures prices is the declining cost of Brent crude and other crude oil that gasoline is made from. Brent crude has dropped from over $125 a barrel in early April to under $120 currently, largely a result of tensions easing with Iran over its nuclear program. Recent signs of a slowing global economy have also helped push down prices.
Gasoline prices at the pump have begun a similar decline. Gas prices currently sit at $3.84, according to AAA. Gasoline stockpiles remain low in Europe and the East Coast of the United States. Several East Coast refineries have been idled over that last several months. They are having a hard time making money because they can only process light, sweet — and expensive — crude from Europe and Africa.
Demand from the developing world, meanwhile, remains strong. There’s a chance that some of these refineries could close permanently, talking roughly 50% of the East Coast’s refining capacity offline. Analysts are watching for potential supply disruptions that could arise if more refineries close on the U.S. East Coast.

My good friend showed me this video a while back. It’s a short skit about three friends and their different pronunciations of the word “Milk”. My first reaction was that this video is hilarious! Let me know what you think.
