Super Sunday #3 ♥

So it's that time of the week again, it's time for another 'Super Sunday'

I asked my friends and family who I should dedicate this weeks 'Super Sunday' post to but they didn't really help!

For instance, Mike suggested I write this weeks post about him... but I told him that he isn't quite famous enough for a 'Super Sunday' dedication just yet!

Sorry Mike!

Anyway, moving on...

this week i decided to honour a person that i genuinely do consider to be one of my idols (yes it's a big deal... i don't have that many idols ok)

i've been a MASSIVE fan of his work for quite a few years now and i expect i'll remain a fan FOREVER since he's so god-damn hilarious!!!

i'll give you a clue shall i?!

does this help...

that's right dudes and dudettes, this week's 'Super Sunday' post is all about the wonderful, incredibly funny and rather fabulous Mr Seth MacFarlane...

for those of you unfamiliar with the sheer force of genius that is Seth MacFarlane, let me enlighten you a little...

he's an American animator, writer, comedian, actor, singer and all round general GENIUS!!!

ok i should explain why he's getting a 'Super Sunday' dedication!

basically... he created the animated TV show 'Family Guy' and i don't know if i've mentioned this before but 'Family Guy' is my FAVOURITE TV show!!! (FACT)

yes i'm a big 'Doctor Who' fangirl, yes i love to watch 'Mad Men' for hours on repeat and yes i've seen every episode of 'Father Ted' multiple times but as far as i'm concerned... 'Family Guy' tops them all... EVERY single time!

so why is the post dedicated to Seth MacFarlane and not 'Family Guy' I hear you cry?

well i don't just love 'Family Guy', it's just so happens that i adore the other animated shows he's created as well!

like 'American Dad'

and 'The Cleveland Show'
and 'Seth's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy' (which i watched 5 times in a row... had some lunch then watched it again)

to be perfectly honest it's hard not to adore a writer and animator that's produced spoofs on everything from music videos, celebrities, movies, historic events and everything in between! and of course... the truly magnificent 'Star Wars' spoofs

if you've never seen any of his hit shows (and you REALLY should see them as soon as possible) then you're probably wondering why he deserves a 'Super Sunday' post!

well Mr MacFarlane isn't just an amazing animator, a hilarious writer and a wonderful voice actor (as if that isn't enough to warrant a blog post dedication) 

he's also got a truly AWESOME singing voice

in fact he's so multitalented it should be illegal!!!
you may not know this but i also happen to be a HUUUUGE fan of 'Musicals' and i literally grew up watching and listening to them all the time since my dad is also a massive 'Musicals' fan 

well... one of the many things i LOVE about 'Family Guy' is all the Musical numbers they put in the show, and since Seth is the voice behind most of the characters in the show, that means it's his singing that makes all those numbers so super duper

by the way in case you genuinely were wondering... my favourite Musical is probably 'the Music Man' closely followed my 'My fair Lady' and 'The Sound of Music'
though when it comes to 'Family Guy' related Musical scenes, i think watching Peter Griffin sing 'Shipoopi' from 'the Music Man' has to be one of my top 'Family Guy' moments ever...

closely followed by Stewie Griffin singing 'I've grown accustomed to her face' from 'My Fair Lady'

and of course... Brian Griffin singing just about anything since Brian is the one character Seth MacFarlane uses his real voice for...

which brings me back to my original point... Seth MacFarlane can really sing! i mean obviously he can sing, he sings in the show all the time but my god... he really can sing!!!

i've seen clips of him singing at the BBC Proms and at 'Family Guy Live' shows but the more i listen to him, the more i can't get over how good his voice is!

if you've a bit of time to spare and happen to be a fan of all the lovely old 'Musicals' then give this little video a watch. he sings 3 songs from 'High Society' and... just wow! what a voice (he shows up at about 0:45 seconds in)

 he's actually currently on tour in the UK going round all the major towns and cities doing performances, sadly i'm not going to see him but if anyone else is, be sure to let me know how awesome the show is!

and that's enough fangirl rambling for today i think! 

if you can't stand 'Family Guy' and you don't like Seth MacFarlane... then you're probably not worth knowing!

what i mean to say is... then i'm sorry for subjecting you to this little 'Super Sunday' dedication... please tune in next week for something completely different!

Happy Super Sunday and of course... massive MASSIVE thanks to the genius that is, Mr Seth MacFarlane for just being so awesome and for having created a show that never fails to cheer me up no matter how miserable i may be! 

it quite literally never fails to put a smile back on my face...

i know you're a fellow atheist Seth... but God-bless ya!!!
