Google I/O + Elaine's dance from Seinfeld = AWESOME

Let me give you a reason to love +Google+...

Google just started their huge I/O conference this week and they have this thing going where you can take a public post with #request, and a Google employee at the conference will try desperately to meet that request. It's pretty cool, honestly.

Well, in classic fashion, I couldn't help myself. I decided somebody needed to make an outlandish request. And here is what I did...

Nathan Weaver
+Melissa Daniels : I have a #request . Can you get footage of yourself doing the Elaine awkward/white girl dance from Seinfeld?

This is my one silly request, I guess. I just wanna see all the looks on folks' faces as you get the kicks and arms flailing.

PS--If you meet my request, I will film a short clip of me turning around and saying, "Sweet fancy Moses!"

Update:#request  fullfilled.

Her dance:

And my response:
Sweet Fancy Moses!


And +Melissa Daniels did not let me down! Below is her glorious version of Elaine's dance.

Pretty sure I shouldn't be re-sharing this as, well... it pretty much speaks for itself. But... this just proves how much I love my #chromies  -- I'm willing to completely embarrass myself for y'all. What's next? Bring on the next #io13    #request  (though I will admit-- I hope +Jacky Hayward and +Divya Vishwanath are next on the docket for goofiness!)

Divya Vishwanath originally shared:Hey world, do you know Elaine from Seinfeld's sweet dance moves? +Nathan Weaver sure does and he put in an (AMAZING) #request  to see +Melissa Daniels bust those moves. I'd say she's got it down. Do you agree? P.S. This is what she's trying to do: Seinfeld - The Elaine Dance P.P.S. Thanks for the great joy you've brought us all, Nathan :)

And I held up my end of the bargain and returned the Sweet Fancy Moses it rightfully deserved.


 


I'm feeling pretty good about myself today...

Merlin & Hagar : A Gnome Photo Series

I decided, on a whim yesterday, to make a photo series based off my wife's gnome collection. It was a collection she curated over her childhood, buying them all from the same place in Derby, Kansas, where her grandparents lived.

The series stars two gnomes, Merlin and Hagar. One is jolly, and the other grumpy. Enjoy.

I have the first two posted, and will embed below.



New website look and stuff coming soon

I've been meaning to give my site an extreme makeover and be better about writing posts, and sharing stories. Well, it's coming....I'm currently testing with my new theme/layout, and it is gonna be cool...let me tell ya. And as far as more content, I will be writing more and writing more blog posts as well. This is more of a challenge to myself to stay on top of things, and less of an actual promise. Yikes!Any rate, stay tuned.

A little on Audrey Hepburn, my favorite actor

It takes a lot for me to say something is 'my favorite'. For example, when it comes to movies, I have a laundry list, and the one at the top is really only there because I just can't bring myself to take it down for something else.

Some people claim actors as favorites for silly reasons. Yes, I said silly. While Audrey may not make the list for favorite actor for a lot of folks, though maybe for 'best style' or some other nonsense. For me, she makes the top for acting. And here's why...

In her career, and life, she was constantly met with challenges and always overcame them. An actor who takes on challenges and bests them, those are the truly talented actors. From her humble beginnings in life, taking part in the underground resistance during WW2, to stardom, she saw a lot of challenges along the way. Like, how do I save these Jews from the Nazi soldiers coming this way? Oh, let me walk over and pick a flower for the Nazi, giving the Jews time to get…
