I Love to Singa

One of my all-time favorite Merrie Melodies is I Love to Singa, the story of Owl Jolson, a tiny owl who is rejected by his father for not following in the family traditions of classical music, instead wanting to be a jazz singer. It’s a surprisingly great story about parents learning to love their child for who he is, despite the initial shock and disappointment of him not turning out just like them.It was directed by Tex Avery, produced by Leon Schlesinger, and released to theaters on July 18, 1936, by Warner Bros. and Vitaphone. “I Love to Singa” was first a song written by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg for the 1936 Warner Bros. feature-length film The Singing Kid. It is performed three times in the film: first by Jolson and Cab Calloway, then by the Yacht Club Boys and...

Pop Tart Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Posted by on Sep 19, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Apparently, back in 2013, Carl’s Jr, which is the owned by the same company that owns Hardee’s, started selling Pop Tart Ice Cream Sandwiches. An Iced Strawberry Pop Tart is split in half and a scoop of vanilla ice cream is plopped in the middle of the two halves. I love Pop Tarts and I love vanilla ice cream! I think the two of them together would be great! The only way I could have missed this is if they only sold them at Carl’s Jr.  and didn’t offer them at Hardee’s.  It is obviously something I can make at home (and I will), but as everyone knows, things almost always taste better from a restaurant. In fact, I will probably experiment with different flavors of Pop Tarts and ice creams, like Brown Sugar Cinnamon (my favorite) and vanilla....

Preschool viewing for grown -ups!

Posted by on Sep 18, 2015 in T.V., Visual Stimulation | 0 comments

Shows for preschoolers that I enjoyed as an adult! Having kids means watching a lot of kid -oriented television. I already am a big fan of animation, so it’s not really a great stretch that some of the shows for little kids would grow on me as well. A lot of the songs are very catchy! (Especially after hearing them several thousand times) Some of these you may even remember watching when you were a kid yourself. Here are my top ten favorite little kid’s shows, in no particular order. 1. Blue’s Clues – I was devastated when Steve left. 2. PB and J Otter – Use your noodle, do the noodle dance! 3. Rolie Polie Olie – I love anything by William Joyce 4. Little Einsteins – It teaches with classical music! How can you not love it!...
