The Beat from Troy Music Hall #12, Easy Indulgences

Two months in and we hope you are being good to yourself. This week we encourage you to indulge! Get some Stewart’s Ice Cream (bonus, it’s on sale this week!), make a super easy ice box cake, sing along to Disney classics, read some poetry, and watch some happy videos online, curated for you by us!

Love and Marriage

Are you binge watching The Office? If not, we suggest you start, it’s a show that holds up to multiple viewings. If you miss the cast, watch this week’s Some Good News, hosted by John Krasinski (Jim). All his Office coworkers join him, including Steve Carell and Mindy Kaling, to recreate a classic scene.


Pro tip – use your hair brush as a microphone, you will sound better.

Blast From The Past

“Feeling That Way” & “Anytime” – Journey back in time for this 1978 Journey performance on The Midnight Special.

5-Ingredient Cannoli Ice Box Cake, courtesy of the Capital Region’s own Rachel Ray. There is no easier dessert to make, and the video above is a “fancy” version. Click here for the original chocolate wafer recipe and make one tonight.

Just For The Fun Of It

Poetry – these are 10 of the world’s most famous poems – with a bonus! This site breaks down the meaning of the poems, giving you greater insight into the writing.

Find Your Bliss
This man’s reaction to a double rainbow is so pure! (Language warning – he does drop one F-Bomb that we were unable to bleep. Our abilities are limited due to the fact that we are working from home.)

Puzzle this out
Puzzles are a great way to engage your brain! Heinz has created a 570 pieces, all Heinz red puzzle that the public can potentially win! Info here.

Our final video today – More Sad Cats – we are so cruel to them.

We know this is hard, and if you need someone to listen, NYS has set up a Covid Emotional Support Helpline – call 1-844-863-9314, available 8 AM – 10 PM, seven days a week.

We are marking our 145th Anniversary this month.

We are proud of our history and our service to the community. The current crisis has had a significant impact on us, but we look forward to opening our doors and welcoming you back!
