Walk off the Earth – Material Girl

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Walk Off the Earth (WOTE) is a fun and imaginative cover band – and they make good use of my favorite form of video – the “single camera-single take” mode (filmed on an iPhone).  Check out the very pregnant but still very energetic lead vocalist in this cover of Madonna’s “Material Girl.” Don’t forget the […]

Age is just a number

Interesting article by Kerri Anne Renzulli for Money: This is the Age when you become Old, According to 4 Different Generations.
