Drinkee - Sofi Tukker

I'm on a music kick right now. We had a friend introduce us to this song. I just think it has a great vibe. Plus, it's in Portuguese, which I don't mind at all. :)

VoXXclub - Rock Mi

Changing the pace a bit, I'd forgotten about voXXclub. (I'm pretty sure I haven't posted about them before - but not positive.) I saw one of their flashmob videos a year or more ago, but then totally spaced on it.

With that in mind, there are two videos below. The first is the flash mob, the second their music video. The flash mob video is very fun, and the music quality of the second is very good. However, the music video definitely makes me think of the 90s boy bands for some reason - so just bear that in mind. ;)

This song is just so happy.

King Bhumibol of Thailand

King Bhumibol Adulyadej, King of Thailand, just passed away. It's sad news.

King Bhumibol wasn't even on my radar until the last year as we've been preparing to go to Thailand and wanted to learn a little more about the country that we'd be visiting. At some point, in our YouTube meanderings, we stumbled upon the following short documentary. If you have 45 minutes to watch or listen to it, please do. 

Why do I care about King Bhumibol? Because he was an incredible example of how all leaders should be. Because he devoted his life to his people. Because he demonstrated an exemplary level of character and integrity. Because he was all things that he should have been.

Obviously, no one is perfect. There are examples of areas where he, like anyone, fell short. Thailand is not a perfect country. He wasn't able to positively influence all of the areas that needed influencing. But he did so much good.
