A Cover of the song originally by Pink – but here covered by Shirley Bassey.

Music video for Get The Party Started by Dame Shirley Bassey. This incredible recording can be found on the Get The Party Started album, which is out now. A new single with some fabulous dance mixes by NorthxNWest, Flip N Fill and Fugitive, as well as this music video is now also available.

For those of you who missed it, you can now watch the wedding vows of Richard and David Speakman. We took our vows in San Jose on June 17, 2008 at 9:11 (how’s that for an omen) a.m. as the first same-gender couple in the 10th-largest city in the United States to be legally married.

We shared our day with a wonderful female couple, Ronni and Hannah Pahl,  who were married about 6 minutes after us. They were accompanied by their 12-year-old son. In the end we were the first male and female couples to be married in Silicon Valley and Santa Clara County.

When I watch this video I have two thoughts: 1) I need to lose 40 pounds, 2) relief that it’s finally over. After 6 years together, I’m really happy that I can finally refer to Rich as my husband without it just being wishful thinking. And as for the middle-age spread I have going on, I just chalk it up to the fact that for most people, a happy and long relationship + two good cooks under one roof = pleasing plumpness.

Heck, I’d rather be fat and happy than skinny and single any day.

Unfortunately, the size of the video had to be cropped to fit on my web server, so I had to edit out Ronni and Hannah’s vows.
