Lee D. Knows How To Use 140 Characters… And Uses Them Well
Posted January 10, 2011on:
I’m super impressed. I always considered him smart, if only for the reason that he can sing and play guitar at the same time. I would even be impressed if he didn’t do it very well, but the cherry on top is the fact that he can do it very well. I can barely do either task by itself.
So, I think he’s a smarty pants for that, and also for the fact that he can write cohesive tweets in 140 characters or less. (don’t even say other people write it for him, because that would just ruin my angelic view of him) He’s like Einstein! (Albert Einstein…. not the dog from Back to the Future…. who is in fact named after Albert Einstein. Fun fact!)
Do you know how long it takes me to send a cohesive, witty tweet in 140 characters or less?? A long GD time is how long! Why do you think I have a blog?? Because I ramble. I wouldn’t be able to spew all my immensely funny, intellectual and logical creativity in 140 characters! The pressure of it alone eats me alive.
I’ll leave the 140 characters to Lee bear. We know he is good at it. (Click HERE for proof) but if your are not intrigued (or a risk taker) by that request to click there…. I have proof of his intelligence with 140 characters right here.
In that 112 character tweet (Yes, I counted… I may be off) he didn’t even need to use all 140. That’s how skillful and suave he is. (His brain is just as suave as the suave product-ed hair that protects it)
That tweet tells us so much….
1) He is glad his album is selling for $3.99. He must have done the math too (With his watch. Naturally.) and saw that sales have increased 384893548%.
2) ….. that means happy. You don’t even think of doing the smiley face unless your heart is smiling. And Lee D. is smart and he knows this.
3) He also lets us know he has more radio promo shows coming up. (he wasted a character with that back slash… but I’ll let that slide because he left of the “G” at the end of “coming” for good measure…. always thinking ahead)
On a side note: I’m making a bet with myself that I will only allow myself a piece of chocolate until Lee D. emerges from the depths of Chicago/LA or wherever the hell he is not wearing the grey beanie and/or a grey t-shirt. He has to be without hat AND a different color shirt for me to eat that chocolate. I swear to Oprah this is a bet I have going with myself. So as a pathetic plea to Lee (oo that rhymed) I beg him NOT to wear a hat and NOT to wear a grey t-shirt. I love chocolate…. I miss it.
Now, in the above tweet he also uses his 140 characters well. He informs us that he is looking forward to “it” and is happy about it…. and he still has no idea what his schedule is because he has no assistant.
Side note on assistant thing: Remember my fake contest for a Lee bear assistant that occurred awhile ago. You don’t remember?? Good! Because I forgot to until this exact moment I’m typing these words. But guess what??? I CHOSE THE WINNERS!!! PaulaKO1984 and MamaKat_CA!!! Let’s congratulate these ladies because they are willing to do things I don’t have patience for and they like to camp and have coffee. The only thing I ask is that you keep him on top of the whole wardrobe thing….. I know I can count on you ladies. Good luck and Oprah speed. *salute*.
Back to the real post:
I don’t really know where I was going with this except for the fact that he is a genius with 140 characters. Now, that I went and got all deep about his brain function… let’s get back up to the very shallow surface of my own mind and look at pictures because there are already 645 too many words on this page. (See?? That’s why I can’t only express myself via Twitter… Oprah didn’t make me short on words)
And in honor of new shows and other exciting stuff watch this. He kinda looks like a guidance counselor in that jacket. Guidance counselor bear.
Could you imagine if he didn’t sing this song ever again? I would stand wherever I would be in this world and you would see 1 single tear roll down my left cheek. It would be so sad. And so dramatic.
