The Best Sound Bites Belong To Lee D… Congrats Good Sir
Posted December 7, 2010on:
(I don’t know why I spoke Old English in that last part of the title…it just felt right so I went with it )
Well…. I guess they aren’t really sound bites if I don’t have the actual bite of sound (which may or may not exist in science)…. but I will post quotes instead and you can just imagine him saying it. (or singing it… whatever works for you)
Cindy (hey girl hey!!) said she found a new-ish interview with the one and only Lee bear on CNN and her comment got my attention. This was the comment:
Hey Rocco – I found a cute video clip of Lee Bear on CNN – of all places. I haven’t seen it before and he is, of course, absolutely adorable even if he does talk about how he wants to die (gotcha with that didn’t I?)
-First off… way to go CNN for relating the news people care about. I’m tired of hearing about politics… we get it, the Republicans and Tea Party people are taking over the world!! If that is the truth I want to hear/see something that makes me smile…and that’s Lee bear and his fluffy hair and rosy cheeks.
-Second… yes Cindy, you did indeed grab me with that death comment. Not that I want death anywhere near anybody I adore… but you got an eye for attention grabbing statements my friend. You should maybe work for CNN.
So, thanks to Cindy my last hour at work was mapped out and I only had one goal; finding this interview. I love scavenger hunts and ones that involve Lee D. are probably much more fun than that stupid one involving colorful eggs that I can never seem to find.
Found it???? I found something on CNN with Lee bear mentioning death, but who knows if this is what Cindy was talking about (was it??). Maybe Lee bear mentions death in interviews all the time, and I just never realize. Maybe he is a zombie secretly.
Buuuuuuut this brings me back to the sound bite thing.
Here are my favorite wise words from Mr. DeWyze…. (Wyze… wise… get it?? hahha never connected the two, but I’m sure you all have already made that joke and are shaking your head.)
“Even on the show, they were like, ‘The Paint Store Guy,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, everybody’s got to go to work.’ ” —– he doesn’t even try to hide the annoyance of the paint store thing anymore and that cracks me up! (then again I can’t tell his connotation through typed out words… but I want to imagine him annoyed at it… if not then JK about all the nonsense I just wrote)
“J Lo — I mean, it’s gonna be weird.” — I admit there was more to this where he says something along the lines of the combo of people is going to be different, but cool (always the politician this dude) but I just wish he said the above snippet. Because him saying the words “J Lo” is weird enough and her having an opinion about singing is weird too.
I’ve had people come to me and be like, “I didn’t vote for you, man, but I really dig your song.” And I’m like, “Thanks,”—- this is why I could never be on American Idol… because if someone said that they didn’t vote for me (whether I won or not) I’d be super paranoid that more people hated me, and I would lose sleep over why this one person didn’t vote for me and who else didn’t vote for me??? Did my parents even vote?? What about my 1st grade teacher??? What could I do to make them like me?? *panic panic* So, that was my thought process and Lee’s was “Thanks”… smart man.
Mud wrestling. — his perfect date.
Ohhhhhhh just kidding. That would have been funny though. I left that space to let it sink in and try to trick you…. This is what he said… (funny but not as funny as my fake quote)
Mud wrestling. They need to have mud wrestling matches on stage after every performance. —– this was his answer to what Idol needs to do to keep viewership. I would love to see Steven Tyler punch J Lo in the face with some mud (but all in good fun). With commentary by Ryan Seacrest of course.
You can see the interview below and he does mention death. But not in a depressing way, in a way that he’s so happy he could die. I imagine he is having as much fun as I did when I met the Backstreet Boys. I said “I could die right now”, but that wasn’t true… I didn’t want to die, just like I’m sure he doesn’t. You can watch the interview below by clicking on him and Donald and read it HERE
Wow this post was super long and just the motivation I needed…
Let’s go mud wrestle.
PS I promise I’ll stop with that Lee/duck picture. Just had to post it one more time.
