Music Monday: YOLO

I am an internet junkie.

Even so, it doesn't mean I understand all Internet Acronyms. YOLO was one of those that I just nodded my head at when everybody was using it. I didn't want to ask what it meant for fear of looking stupid.


And now, I have openly admitted that for the longest time, I never even understood what it meant. (For those of you that are right there with me, it means You Only Live Once!)

The meaning behind it is kind of cool. It means get out there and do something. After all, why wait and why hide. Life is full of ups and downs - you should at least experience it! Go out on adventures. Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one can hear. Don't dwell on what you don't have; Enjoy what you can do! It's about the experience. It's about enjoying your time with those that do the most to accent your life. It is living like tomorrow never comes. It really is a great motto.

Although I am never one to jump on the bandwagon so I still don't really use internet acronyms. I like to be clear with what I am saying... although I will admit to an overuse of the acronym LOL.

Last Saturday night we were over at a friend's house watching a movie. The second the movie came off, we got sucked into watching Saturday Night Live. I don't remember the last time I watched Saturday Night Live. It seems to go through phases where it is really funny and other times when it is really bad.

But if it wasn't for last Saturday, I would have never been introduced to the song from The Lonely Island, featuring Adam Levine, called "YOLO"

Don't skip this video! It is hilarious! Not to mention the perfect choice for Music Monday!


  1. Totally felt a bit old that I haven't heard this song yet, but don't really remember the last time I watched SNL. Thanks for sharing this here and Happy Monday to you too Stacy!! :)

  2. Thank you for clearing that up. I never knew what it meant either. :)

  3. LOL...the video made me to go to YouTube to watch it. I never knew what YOLO meant, either, but might have given me a blog post idea. THANKS! Awesome! :D

  4. The problem with YOLO is it's used by teenagers as an excuse to neck a fifth of tequila and drive home.

  5. love the motto, Stacy!

    The pix of you 5 says it all :)

    The video was awesome...Happy Monday :)

  6. I will join those who learned the meaning of the acronym YOLO (and I also belong to the club of those how simply like the convenience of using lol... )

    Good sentiment... going out there and just plain doing stuff...good advice (btw, scotts are the 'natural yolo people... act first, think later)

    Good Post

  7. OK, that video is so awesome. Hilarious! I love it when Justin Timberlake does videos for SNL- it's one of the only current SNL sketches I watch. I am one of the lame-os who had never heard YOLO. Thanks for clueing me in so I don't look stupid later!

  8. I knew about YOLO thanks to my teenager, but I fell asleep watching SNL so I hadn't seen the video - too funny!

  9. Haha! THAT'S what YOLO means? I thought it was a fancy way of saying yodel or something... Thanks for posting this video, great start to the day, lol!

  10. Ah, I didn't know what it meant either till I read this! I have to say I like it as an acronym. Cool video!!

  11. Yeah, I didn't know what it meant either. :) It's a great motto though!

  12. It's nice to know that they now have a word for the philosophy I've always called, "Experience life, overcome fears, and live!" However, what's the point at the end of the video where they say, "You Oughta Look Out?" Seems like almost another meaning of YOLO there. Hmmmm ... who knows. Now, when you guys going to go rattlesnake hunting with me?
