TJEVlog #3: Be a F@#!ing Ray of Sunshine!

Published April 29, 2013 by Teresa

I recorded this vlog about four days after the Boston Marathon bombing, but am only putting it up now because I haven’t had time to edit and upload it. A lot has happened in the past ten days…but the main point of the vlog remains the same. I hope you’ll give it a watch.

AUTISM IN LOVE (Or, Happy Autism Awareness Month!)

Published April 14, 2013 by Teresa

You’re gonna be hearing a lot about diabetes on this blog over the next year, but there is another cause that is near and dear to my heart – autism awareness. I have a nephew and a niece on the spectrum, but while they each have their share of difficulties, they are also ridiculously brilliant and have enormous hearts.

So I, of course, would love to think that when they become adults, someone else will see their brilliance and kindness and fall in love with them. I mean, duh, right?

A new friend of mine, Carolina Groppa, is producing an amazing-looking documentary that I’m super-excited about called Autism in Love. Check out the sizzle reel above, and tell me that you don’t want to meet each and every one of those people! What’s interesting, too, is that as they’re talking about the autism-specific challenges that these people face with regard to relationships, all I could think was – It’s not just autism. It’s hard to find love PERIOD! I want to tell each of these people that they’re not alone in their struggles to find happy relationships. People without autism have plenty of trouble in that area, too! That’s not necessarily a great piece of news, but at least it’s something we all have in common! :)

Autism In Love is having a Kickstarter right now, and there are 19 days left. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, consider backing this really awesome project, and tell ‘em Teresa Jusino sent you. ;)

Lately, I’ve been using the video function on my point-and-click camera a lot more when I’m out and about, just capturing random stuff. It amazes me that I’ve had this camera for years, but have rarely used it for video…UNTIL NOW. :)

This week’s TJEVlog contains footage from my very first “Teresa’s Hike & Brunch,” a hiking (and brunching) meet-up I started and that I’m organizing twice a month that will both help me get in shape for the POUND BY POUND Pledge Drive, and allow me to stay in touch with friends. Marvel as my friend Heather and I…are lazy and take the easy trail. ;) YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT! Also, we’re cute.

Enjoy this little glimpse into The Teresa Jusino Experience!

TJEVlog #1: Introducing the Pound By Pound Pledge Drive!

My dad and my mom. Probably from the 1908's sometime. Not sure exactly when, but I just love this photo. They both look so fabulous, and so happy.

As I mentioned in my previous post, today is the anniversary of my mom’s passing. It’s been seven years, and I still miss her all the time, usually when I’m doing something awesome that I instantly want to tell her about…but can’t. I’m hoping she knows.

It’s also my friend Adam’s birthday! He’s one of my BFF’s in New York. I miss him, too, and I wish I could celebrate with him this weekend. Have fun being old! :)

Anyway, I thought it appropriate to do my VERY FIRST VLOG this week, because I wanted to announce an effort I’m taking on this year in honor of my mom, and I’m hoping that all of you who read this will want to get in on it! So, watch the video below and do what it says! :)

(RIVER) SONG OF THE DAY: NOT THE DOCTOR – ALANIS MORISSETTE

Published March 25, 2013 by Teresa

Every time I hear this song, I imagine that it’s being sung by a family member or close friend of a returning companion. What happens when the Doctor drops a companion off at home after showing them all of time and space? Well, they’re never the same, and their former, mundane lives can never compete.

And while they’re pining for the TARDIS, their loved ones have to deal with their moody, broody shit. :)

Except for Madge Arwell’s family – because she was badass and could keep her shit together, seeing into the vortex and being all, “That was nice.”

Anyway, today’s Song of the Day comes to us courtesy of Alanis Morissette from her classic 1990’s debut album (if you don’t count her Canadian teeny-bopper stuff), Jagged Little Pill. Here is “Not the Doctor.”

SONG OF THE DAY: TREETOPS – BEAT RADIO

Published March 19, 2013 by Teresa

The boys of Beat Radio

While I’ve always been into a diverse cross-section of music, noise pop was never one of my ultimate favorites. I just don’t like swaying while staring at my shoes that much. If I’m gonna dance, then I’m gonna dance, knowwhatI’msayin?

However, a couple of years ago I was helping someone by doing publicity and marketing for a noisepop music festival in New York, and I was introduced to a band called Beat Radio, which ended up being one of my favorites at the festival. Since 2008, I’ve been on their mailing list and keeping up with their stuff, but their early song “Treetops” remains my favorite, and I thought I’d share it with you today!

Today’s Song of the Day is “Treetops” by Beat Radio. Enjoy!

SONG OF THE DAY: PON DE FLOOR – MAJOR LAZER

Published March 11, 2013 by Teresa

Um…ow.

One of the reasons why I wanted to do a Song of the Day segment (as well as start writing more about music in general) is that I’m generally not up on the latest music. I love music of all types, but rely on friends for recommendations and often don’t get to things until well after everyone else (like, I didn’t really listen to any Bob Dylan until about 2004, when a former roommate who loves his music started playing it around me all the time).

So Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor” (2009) totally passed me by, and I never heard it until I was at Hollywood Babble-On this weekend and this was one of the songs they played. One of the women I was with and I both said something to the effect of “Hell yeah! Beyonce’s ‘Run the World!'” to which The Boy replied, “No, this is Major Lazer.” I insisted I knew a Beyonce song when I heard one, but he was just as insistent, and it was true. Once the song moved past its intro, it was totally not Beyonce, but had the same kick-ass driving dance beat.

This song is really all about the beat – after all, there are but five lyrics in the whole thing – but that beat is infectious and I love it. So props to Major Lazer (mostly DJ Diplo, who’s a freaking booty-dance genius) for producing it, and props to Beyonce for knowing a great sound when she hears it, snatching it up, and putting a better message (and lyrics) around it.

However, if you want to dance your ass off, “Pon de Floor” will do you just fine. Also, this video contains the craziest, most acrobatic fully-clothed simulated sex ever. NSFW-ish?
