Beat It by Michael Jackson Song Parody

Writer’s Block Song - Weird Al Yankovic Style

You want to be a writer, with lots of great fans
So blog it, but no ideas to be had
Weird Al Yankovic Michael Jackson
Just blog it, blog it, blog it blog it
Take a plunger and unclog it

Kids are loud. The cat and dog are in fight.
It doesn’t matter if the cat is wrong or right.
Just blog it, blog it
Just blog it, blog it
Just blog it, blog it
Just blog it, blog it

You have the recipe to your Aunt Ethel’s fudge
And you want to lose weight but your scale won’t budge
So make it, photograph it and let us all indulge
Just blog it, just blog it

You like to add goat’s milk in your long hot bath 
You help with the spelling, but are lost with the new math
You’ll write it, then we’ll read it
Then we’ll join you in your life path
So blog it, the no brainer idea you had
Just blog it, blog it

Kids are loud The cat and dog are in fight
It doesn’t matter if the cat is wrong or right
Just blog it, blog it
Blog it, blog it, blog it

Just blog it, blog it, blog it, blog it
Writer’s block goin’ be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight 10
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right 9
Just blog it, blog it
Blog it, blog it, blog it

Departed Loved One In Heaven Quote

Long Inspirational Quotes in Free Form and Posters

This is a great quote by Maya Angelou:
I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Inspirational Long Quote Poster

If you have a painting in you, paint.
If you have a song to sing, sing.
Don't judge your creation.
Just create it.

Banish doubt & fear and
step out of your own way
if you have to.

Write if you're a writer &
invent if you're an inventor.

Do what you were born to do.
Only then you will know
a remarkable life.
-Toni Sorenson

There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate. - Charles Dickens

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Poetry Day 

Attention-Attention: Exercise your freedom of bad rhyming speech -- August 18th is Bad Poetry Day! Maybe you are a poet? Maybe you just don’t know it? Oh my!

Bad poetry day
Bad Poetry Day August 18th Bad Poems

Bad Poetry Day is August 18th 

Origins: A group of old high school chums decided to write bad poetry to send to an ex-teacher. Awesome! 

I thought I would share with you my bad poetry since I have a challenge for you later on. So here is my poetry writing history:

Rare Gold Star Poetry 

I retired from poetry writing at my zenith. I was in elementary school and got a rare gold star for my poem, "A Skinny Black Cat."  Always stop while your on top, especially if you really do not have any talent for poetry writing.

A Skinny Black Cat

I once had a skinny black cat
And all it did was sit on a mat
It broke in the house
And ate a five foot mouse
Now that cat is fat, fat, fat!

Night Time Cold Medicine, Sylvia Plath and Bad Poetry

Coming out of retirement - The back story:

I was researching with a terrible cold (I'm a little wired on the nighttime cold medicine--sometimes that happens) quotes and poems for my Facebook page.  That when I discovered Sylvia Plath.  I was hooked from the first quote.

The combination of Sylvia swirling in my head, nighttime cherry cough syrup and the fact that my parents moved from the buffer zone of over a 100 miles away to 2.3 miles down the road a year ago March 17th, culminated in the following poems that I bravely submitted to Poetry Magazines.

Yup, this is what happened:

Sylvia Plath poetry writing quote
Sylvia Plath Bad Poetry Day Poems Poster

These are the best and tamest of the group of eight poems that wrote that night:

Sylvia Rose And So Did I 

I try to write but nigh
My voice gets stifled in your lies
Until one night I got a visit from Ms Plath
And she sent you to the grave before my eyes
Sylvia rose and so did I
Now you will have to endure both our wrath

Original Poem - Poetry 
You deemed everything manual labor
Making your coffee-manual labor
Getting the mail-manual labor
Throwing away your trash-manual labor
Doing the dishes-manual labor
Even clearing your dirty dishes from
your nightstand-manual labor

Seeing what’s on tv-manual labor
Fetching your shoes-manual labor
Finding your lost stuff-manual labor
Doing anything you don’t want to do
-manual labor

And you told me you were retiring
from manual labor
You deemed everything manual labor
Doing anything you don’t want to do
-manual labor
You loving me-manual labor

You think you are cool
Having everyone waiting on you
But we think you are cruel
And are waiting on you
to die

Poetry - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good:

So what happens if you are celebrating bad poetry day and the unthinkable happens?  That’s right a good poem accidentally gets written. Yikes.  Well I suggests, sending it to our website for possible publication

Happy Birthday Party Game- Favorite Songs 

 Personalize Birthday Party Game with your Guest Of Honors Favorite Music

This was originally played at a 50th Birthday party so the main music group was 80’s music.  Personalize this game to your music lovers likes.

NOTE: It is not necessary to know the person’s favorite song.  Just his or hers general likes and dislikes. 

For each player including yourself and birthday honoree, make a group of 11 pre-printed (2” x 2”) cards of song’s you know the birthday boy loves, but some he just likes okay, and a couple he may hate.  Plus also a card that says 3 points on one side and is blank on the other.  Put each group of cards in alphabetical order by song title.

Have the guests (including birthday honoree) arrange the cards face down in the order they believe is the honoree's favorite to least favorite song.  

On the blank side of the 3 point card, have the guest put what they believe is his favorite song that is not in the game.  Place the card so that 3 Points is showing, not the answer. This is the tie breaker answer.

Birthday Party Music Cards, Each gets a stack (paperclip part of photo) and arrange face down favorite to hate song, with 3 point favorite write-in answer.

After the guest has put in order (faced down the order of the best to worst song and filled out their 3 point card, then the person who is to the left of the birthday person will go first (for each round) and flip over the first card which should represent the birthday person's favorite song.  Then the next person will flip over their card. The birthday person will go last and flip over the correct answer.  All those who got it right will keep their card, all those who got the answer wrong will discard the incorrect card to the middle discard pile.

At the end of the game, before the three point card is revealed, see if there is a winner.  That would be the person who has the been able to keep the most cards.  If there is a tie, then the three point card comes into play.  Have the tied players flip over the write-in answers.  Whichever answer the birthday boy likes best will be the winner.

Suggested prize for the game winner:  At the crafts store, you can get make your own buttons (pin-back).  Have a young picture of the birthday boy with the words “I know ____(his name) along with some candy.

Here’s what our birthday honoree’s list of songs in order of like to dislike:

Birthday Music Game Cards 

Favorite- Talk Dirty To Me - Poison,  2nd Dancing With Myself - Billy Idol,   3rd Girls, Girls, Girls by Motley Crue,   4th Desperate But Not Serious by Adam Ant,  5th Modern Love by David Bowie,  6th Safety Dance by Men Without Hats,  7th Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield,  8th Only in My Dreams by Debbie Gibson,   9th Brady Bunch Theme Song,  10th Like A Virgin by Madonna,  11th I Write The Songs by Barry Manilow  3 point answer: Wild Side by Motley Crue.

What is funny, is that everyone guessed Billy Idol’s Dancing with Myself as #1 except the birthday guy. Boy did we argue with him!
