My New Favorite Song

I'll post about my keynote from the Teen Author Boot Camp on Monday and Tuesday, but it introduced me to THIS:



I'm reading a book! I'm reading a book!

(When we walked in at the end and this was playing for all the teens my first thought was, "What on EARTH are they introducing to these poor innocent teens?"  Until I understood the lyrics.  Best song ever.)

It´s really amazing and OMG. Julian Smith is talented^^

This is my favorite song, too, it shows how I feel, when someone interrupts me while reading;)

I was introduced to this song when Reading Teen tweeted about it sometime ago. So happy it has spread because it's AWESOME!

That was awesome! My 15 month old was dancing to it. :) I'm going to have to share it with everyone I know now!

Dave Wilson said...

Superb! Thanks for the introduction to Julian Smith. As a photographer, I also love his "Red Eye Flashes Twice" which has just made its way onto my blog.

Sarah said...

I love this, it reminds me of 'Lonely Island' songs which are very 'say what i'm doing' songs too. Some are rude but some are really funny too :D

Essie said...

This is now my ringtone.

Jo Schaffer said...

Hahah! One of our favorites! I made it my ring tone. Glad you enjoyed it!

Julian Smith is a total stud. We are hoping he will agree to be in my husbands movie... he has the script and they are "talking." (=

Jordan McCollum said...

Awesome! Now I just need one called "I'm Writing a Book."

Rudi May Hart said...

This is like what happens when you interrupt my brother. This is a good song.

Megan said...

That is a fantastic video. xD
...I think I'm addicted. ._.;

Britany Clarke said...

That was so funny!!! I showed it to my mom and she said "That's you!"

Katrina L. Lantz said...

Sent your link to my husband so he can laugh his butt off because this is me when I'm in the middle of an awesome book, more or less.

Except for stealing a kid's books. That little boy looked so sad!
