Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

As we all know, parlance's fantastic video was linked to by Paul's FB page on 10 December.

We all jumped up and down and woo-hooed for her amazing achievement.

Unfortunately, because of site problems, she has lost all of our reactions. So, I would ask anybody who felt moved to post on her massive achievement, please post a new comment here so that it isn't forgotten.

Of interest, The Macca Report has published a fantastic interview with parlance about the video.

I apologise if my links aren't quite right, never linked in this way before!

Note: The posts previous to this one were previously in a "Pimp Your Stuff" thread set up, correctly, by parlance. However, I no longer believe it belongs there, given what has happened with it, and so have moved/merged it here. I hope you'll forgive my impudence, parlance!

Thanks, mja, very kind of you. I had a feeling this might happen, so I kept a window with the old page up. I'll repost my longist post from yesterday when I get home (and I'm going to do the same with that George thread I'd started as well).

In the meantime... x-posted from the news thread:

A recap, for the sake of posterity… My video for Paul's track "Appreciate" got featured on his Facebook, Twitter and Google + sites on Tuesday the 10th. And the Macca Report did a great write-up on it (it's a different angle from the previously reported The Examiner article).

[Reposting due to the migration.]

Hey, everyone, so I got some rest, and I wanted to respond to news thread posts. Sorry for the delay. First of all, thanks again for all your congrats and support. If I had seemed less than ecstatic, know that that is FAR from the case! mja had it right when he said I was in a state of shock. Plus I was dealing with finals, work and a new kitten who won't allow me the few hours of sleep I've been trying to catch up on since I finished editing the video. :-)

And ecstatic doesn't even begin to cover it. If I could have told my 8-year-old Beatle fan self that I'd one day make a video that Paul McCartney himself would like, I'd have passed out. My friends thought it would get this far, but I never would have expected that. As you know, I was so happy to reach 1000 views. And thanks to Paul, it looks like it'll reach 5000 by the end of this week!

To answer mja's question, I did get a heads up about the link happening (I can't get into how, sorry). So, all day I was refreshing my FB page on my phone. During the afternoon, I gained a strange craving for hot chocolate, and I took a break from work to walk to the grocery store.

As I was waiting for a red light, I started singing "Appreciate" to myself (as I do, I'm always singing something), while I was refreshing my phone. And I sung, "When you're left for dead in the middle of a crisis, you must appreciate the daAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!! THEY LINKED TO IT!!!!" Luckily no one was standing next the crazy woman sing-screaming on the sidewalk.

It was hot chocolate with marshmallows for the whole office! :-D

As we enjoyed our drinks, someone asked me how I felt. And my response was, "Ummmm, dksjalkjlajdgl *giddy* sakljdaslksdflk heeheeheehee." Another coworker won't let me live that down.

So, yes, ecstatic, thrilled, shocked, giddy, to say the least. :-D

It's really interesting mja noticed the [MPL] because I thought that was just their way of differentiating Paul's posts from his people's posts. That was just a guess, I don't know how it works. But it certainly makes it look way official! heart
