Stairway to Hoopdom


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, February 19, 2012


It was warmer than usual yesterday, so we decided to make good on a SparkDare. See, one of my SparkBuddies, SNOWANGELSSPOCK, called me out on his vlog and dared me to hoop to "Stairway to Heaven," the Mothership version. I think it's because it's an eight-minute long song. Seriously? Hoop for eight minutes? Please. Did he not see my Epic Hoopathon vlog on my Day 200, when I hooped for 200 consecutive minutes? Sir, you insult my hoop endurance.

But then, I thought, well--maybe he just really likes that song. Maybe he's trying to spread the joy of Led Zeppelin. Problem is, that's one of my least favorite songs. Ever. It's only slightly edged out by "Horse with No Name." Sorry if I offend my Freebirdish friends out there. Anywho--Audrey and I decided to take the dare, but put a Mostgirl twist on it. We didn’t think you’d want to see an eight-minute long hoop video anyway.
(And yes, that IS Mary J. Blige, Pat Boone, Dolly Parton and somebody named Dread Zeppelin...)

    Love the song montage you came up with! Who knew Pat Boone? And Dolly?
Love you both, am happy to see kookiness lives! And what is WRONG with your neighbors? They should be out there with their lighters held high demanding an encore.

    one of the most overplayed songs ever - and who knew it was over re-mixed also! I mean seriously - a big band version??? a country version?? yikes!

I loved the neon colors in the middle - that was cool!! You need a more hip hop, fast song anyway!! still loved your version though! emoticon
