Texas teacher, students create incredible "Uptown Funk" viral video

A Texas teacher got his students up and on their feet with a unique project that has now gone viral!

Theater director Scot Pankey is the hip-shaking teacher dancing to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” with his students.

Mr. Pankey reminds me of my high school band teacher - so cool!

Mardi Gras Countdown


I had family and friends over to my place for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  They had so much fun they assumed mine was the place to be for New Year's eve too.  I'm like enough already. This is not party central. LOL!

Seriously though, folks in New Orleans are unable to "recover" from holiday festivities like most people do in other places.  They are now getting ready for the mother of all holidays - MARDI GRAS

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

"Wolf of Wall Street" ending - "Cast Your Fate to the Wind"

I had the "Wolf of Wall Street" movie playing while grading final exams, projects and trading competitions.  It was a long, crazy, exhausting movie to watch - almost 3 hours long.  My biggest surprise was the really nice music at the end of the movie - "Cast Your Fate to the Wind". My dad used to play this song when I was a kid.

Mr. Bobby Caldwell

A friend of mine just told me that I used to walk around U.C. Berkeley's math department singing this Bobby Caldwell song. I guess I was in my own little math geeky world - oblivious to the fact that I was disturbing the peace. LOL!

Bobby Caldwell has what is known as blue-eyed soul. Enjoy!
