Kay: Still Entertainment!

It’s another stay-at-home Monday, and I’ve been feeling a little bit blah, I don’t know about you. I’m happy to say that people have been sending me stuff for amusement, so I have a few things to share that you might enjoy and help you get your week off to a good start.

First up is a heartwarming clip of a music teacher who wrote a song to express her feelings about the coronavirus epidemic. Her song is a fantastic expression of her talent. She’s on one of the morning talk shows, so you have to get past the intro.

The next one is an oldie but goodie: the late, great Johnny Carson, former host of The Late Show, had the (mis)fortune to have a “talking” parakeet on the show. Two of Carson’s greatest talents were his ability to ad lib and his poker face. See how he makes out with the bird.

Finally, for something a little less mainstream, we have the Drag Queens in Quarantine (DiQ) performing to Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again.” (Vera Lynn made this song a hit in 1939; today she’s 103!) In this clip, 26 drag queens in five countries are raising money for the charity Age UK, the UK’s largest charity for older people. The song is lovely as well as timely, and while you listen, check out the eye makeup. Truly amazing.

So until we meet again, I hope everyone has a safe, healthy, happy week. May the 4th be with you!

  1. I’m sure you’re not the only one feeling blah, Kay, so thank you for the fun selection.

    I’m missing my hairdresser (the upside is I’m saving a small fortune), so my fave story this week was Prickles the sheep, who went missing after the Tasmanian bush fires in 2013 and has just been discovered wearing seven years’ worth of fleece. Check her out:

    • That sheep is incredible! Think of all the sweaters you could get from that wool.

      I think we’re all thinking about hair these days. I’ll be taking a scissors to my own soon. It won’t be pretty, but then, it never is.

  2. I loved the Drag Queens in Quarantine! I’m amazed at how beautiful and artistic their makeup is. I can barely drag eyeliner across my eye without messing up!

    • They all looked so good, and what a lovely song to choose. I kept wondering, if they were from “five countries,” which five? And if they weren’t all English-speaking, you’d never know from the lip-syncing. They did such a good job. So much different from the music teacher! Who also did a fantastic job, but in a much different way. 🙂
