Do you remember Wine Country Gangnam Style?
Well the same folks at Jordan Winery who did that parody have a new one out for the summer “Blurred Vines” which asks the question: who gets the girl–the wine geek or the wine dude? “Geeks obsess over wine lists, wine scores and winemaking techniques. Dudes love their wine but don’t take it too seriously.” So who gets the girl? Watch “Blurred Vines” to find out. #blurredvines (PS You can see my Gangnam Style parody “Chile Style” here!)
Here’s the original Robin Thicke video “Blurred Lines.” Here’s another fabulous parody of it by Mod Carousel, a Seattle based boylesque troupe. And this “Blurred Lines” parody with Jimmy Kimmel is hilarious.
Thanks to Jordan’s Lisa Mattson for showing us how to have fun with wine! And congrats to Jordan for being willing to take risks like this! Hmmn, I really should have been drinking and reviewing a Jordan wine while I posted this! Next time!
And remember that August 14 is the return of Wine Blogging Wednesday! Dry rose!
Once again Lenn Thompson of LENNDEVOURS (now New York Cork Report) and Tim Elliott (of Winecast) have resurrected Wine Blogging Wednesday (WBW). Hatched in 2004 by Lenn, each month a different blogger “hosts” a virtual tasting by developing and publicizing a theme. Participants write on that theme and post the results on their blogs on the designated Wine Blogging Wednesday and let the host know. Then the host posts a summary soon after linking to the participating blogs.
Wine Blogging Wednesday seemed to run smoothly enough for about five years then it ran out of gas. (See my December 2010 posts about whatever happened to Wine Blogging Wednesday.) WBW was tuned up, but again seemed to be headed for the junk yard when Lenn and Tim Elliot responded to continued interest by myself and others as well as a conversation on twitter about whether Drunken Cyclist’s wine round-up with voting for best post could replace WBW and conversations on Facebook among women wine writers about how we’d run it..
So where are we headed for Wine Blogging Wednesday #80 on Aug.14, 2013? Continue reading
Remember when you were a kid and summer seemed like it lasted forever? Long lazy days, late nights, hours by the pool or at the beach? Continue reading
