obsessed.: "Come & Get It," Mount Hamilton and Crush the Castle

My name is Mandy, I am nearly 30 years old, and I am currently obsessed. with ...

Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It."

The video makes me a tad uncomfortable (and is kind of awfully ridiculous), but the song is just so dang catchy! I love the bit of Indian music (I'm assuming?) sampled throughout.


This week, from the Mister:

Colt's currently in California on a work trip, and when he's out in Cupertino, he makes a point of renting a bike and riding to the top of local mountain, Mount Hamilton. (He's done it three times now.) The route is about 19 miles of pretty much pure climbing from the bottom, but the view from the top—at around 4,200 ft above sea level—is reportedly pretty awesome. (There's even an observatory at the peak.)

Here's a shot of the mountain from below:

If you're curious, you can check out the stats on Colt's latest ascent here.

And from TGG:

Wes has been a longtime fan of the flash game series Crush the Castle. As he describes them, "they're basically Angry Birds with a trebuchet instead of a slingshot and minus the annoying characters."

A new version of the game—Crush the Castle Adventures—was released recently, and is Wes' new fave, in part for the visual design, the inventive new shots, the individual level goals and the king, whose "blood-thirst is unquenchable and adorable."

A new level will be released tomorrow, but you can start playing today here.


  1. Hi Mandy! I'm Sophia, 30, and obsessed with that new One Direction song/video, Best Song Ever.

    Just played a couple of levels on the flash game. Super cute, super fun!

  2. STOP LOOKING AT BIEBERS LADY LIKE THAT!! for reals though- it's totally peppy but i feel like i'm invading her bedroom fantasies... sorta like in the last twilight movie when they finally "did the deed" i felt like i was peeking in their bedroom window.

  3. This is going to sound weird, but the whole feel of the video doesn't fit with her face. She's too "cute" to be all sex-pot like that.

  4. This comment made my day. <3

    Also: Just listened to "Best Song Ever." Ah-dorbs.
