Best Katy Perry Video Ever

Wow.

This video is awesome on so many levels.

First, the song.  What is this pseudo-rasta beat?  Is she borrowing some old-school lessons from the Police?

Second, the hamster.  I just can’t.  Never has a hamster been better-featured in a video.

Katy, I know you were away for awhile, but thanks for coming back and bringing stuff like this.

 

A Dorky Audition

A few years back I auditioned to be someone’s wedding performer.  Now, I’ve performed at weddings before (for friends, for free) but this was for strangers.  They wanted to see a demo reel.

So I very diligently put on a nice dress, makeup, and recorded several songs that they requested…..even though I was looking to teach guitar lessons, NOT perform at a wedding.  (Thanks, Craigslist!)

Here is my dorky audition.  Needless to say, I didn’t get the gig!

At the time, I was suuuuuuuper bummed.  But you know what?  Who cares!  Now I have this great recording, one that I would never have made had I not created a failed audition video!

By the way, I still love this song.
