Posts Tagged ‘Crash Into Me’
I haven’t written about Lee D in like 17 weeks and today I’ve written about him twice and it’s the only 2 posts. That’s like a 456% increase if my math calculations are correct.
Remember that picture??? Good times.
Anyway, Lee D was like making the Chicago Bulls win basketball games and performing for a bunch of drunk people, and he was pretty much the only one getting shit done this weekend. He was working it.
Here are some pictures from an event I like to call Platinum Events NYE 2012 (or as their Facebook calls it):
1) Lee D concentrating very hard on something, unlike his drunk/stoic guitar player. Was Linc the Sink there?? I know he was wasted if he was. Miss him.
2) Here’s Lee D not drinking, but cracking up with who I hope is Brad from It’s A Brad, Brad World: Bravo’s newest reality hit.
3) And here’s a man who I kept thinking was a younger, hotter Benicio Del Toro and now that I think about it, I might be still drunk from Saturday.
Right?? Maybe?? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter because here is video of Lee D proving he’s not shit faced because he can sing “Crash Into Me” like it’s 1997.
The person holding the camera clearly didn’t have as much alcohol restraint as Lee Bear.
Okay… that’s all I got. I’m all Lee’ed out from this 456% increase.
I’m gonna need that drummer to follow Lee D around at all costs. Like, even just in everyday life and play a little beat while Lee runs errands at the market. If he can have random people come with him on tour (people who don’t really need to be there, like a stylist that he never uses) he can definitely afford to have a little drummer boy with him.
I don’t know if I was just getting bored with acoustic Lee D or what…. but the addition of these drums is reviving my love for this album, and I needed that.
(Go to Red Beanie Blog and tell her you love her, because that is where I got these videos because once again my weird mind got in the way last night and I watched 3 hours of Vampire Diaries, instead of working and looking for Lee D. WV videos.)
“Naked As We Came”
He dances and grooves a little more. Even his hair is bouncier… the follicles love the drums. Look at Linc the Sink!! He’s jamming!
“Crash Into Me”
Thank Oprah I wasn’t driving while writing this (I’m a great multi-tasker. Don’t worry about it) because that scream in the beginning would have caused me to crash. I was not expecting it and I jumped.
Did he perform any of his own songs is my question?? Look at his hair in that light! It’s heavenly. Doesn’t this song sound better with some drummies??? Yes, it does.
I love his “thank you all so much… “. It’s so serious. Serious fun.
” A Song About Love”
This song + drums= Rocco likes this song more
Ummm where is “Earth Stood Still”???
PS I ended this all very abruptly.
You all know where I’m going with this right off the bat. But let’s tell it from the beginning.
Wednesday’s are just the longest days of my life and I’m usually not in bed until very late. I blame all of this on American Idol and my deep, deep love for it. And last night the blame can also be placed on Devy Wevy Bevy who needed a place to sleep because she was drinking beers on the UES. So, while waiting for her, I finished my American Idol recap and I decided to watch Prison Break to stay awake… this was at like 11:30. Cut to 1:15 AM: I’m passed out on top of the covers, drooling. Devy Wevy Bevy comes and I after some impromptu sleepover chit-chat (I.E. Are you wasted?? What bar were you at? I could totally break out of prison if I really tried. I could even break you out.) we fell asleep.
Not a moment too soon *LONG LIVE THE WALLS WE CRASHED THROUGH* (<— that’s my ringtone for text messages) blares through the room and Devy Wevy Bevy remains in her coma. I forget that my phone is no longer the devil and actually functions in my bedroom, so I tend to forget to silence it as I rest my bod.
Once my phone went off (loudly) I said “you’ve got to be kidding me. I’m so angry at whoever this is.”
And guess who it was??
(Totally just spent a good 10 minutes trying to find that picture. The dedication I have is unwavering)
At 1:30 in the morning all I saw was Dixie and I thought he was talking about Dixie cups and I was massively confused. Plus, he was speaking improper English and it was confusing me more in the wee hours of the AM. I just shut off my phone, prayed no one would have to contact me in the middle of the night, and continued to drool on my pillow.
And now at 9:46AM I’m pretty convinced he should be charged with TUI (tweeting under the influence), which we all do by the way…. and I’m pretty confident he was eating some KFC, because why would he be babbling about chicken?? Exactly.
Some great responses were given… so let’s get into that before I start babbling. (I feel it coming on)
This person may or may not have been kicking it down with Lee D. because this makes no sense. I’m glad they love nature. Nature is cool. I guess you can say chickens are involved in nature… so maybe it does make sense?? I don’t really know these things.
This person may or may not be carrying the devil in their womb. Ever see Rosemary’s Baby?? I can’t find the clip on YouTube but if you’ve seen that movie you’re laughing and if you haven’t you think I’m out of my mind. It doesn’t even matter at this point… and now I’m babbling. This is what I was afraid of.
Or maybe it was a sexual joke that went over my head?? Hmmm.
Exactly. I googled “Dixie chicken” so I could be in on this joke (I never know what he’s talking about and I feel like the loser in the lunchroom who can’t hang with the cool kids) and all that I got was this….. an extremely racist chicken.
What an asshole chicken! He’s kind of a jerk. A jerk chicken!
(That is a funny joke. You all better be laughing at that)
Anyway… after extensive research (and by that I mean texting a friend and looking on Twitter) he’s just repeating a Dave Matthew’s line. I would never have known that because 1) you just saw the nonsense I just said about a racist chicken and 2) I’m a fake DMB fan. I’ve never known less music in my life… I only like DMB when I’m trying to impress a frat guy I want to date. By the way… lying never works out. They always find out you only know 1 song and that conversation is awkward.
And now I’m babbling like a brook. Good times on Twitter. I’m gonna get waste one night and just go off on Twitter. That will totally be an exciting blog the morning after.
PS: Oh and I know I can totally just change twitter settings so I don’t get these tweets in the middle of the night but 1) I forget to do that and 2) this wouldn’t have been a blog and you wouldn’t know about the racist chickens running around LA. You’re welcome America.
Don’t get excited this isn’t an awesome Lee bear Amish post… (Oh Oprah how I wish it was!) but I just thought this was funny and wanted to share it with you:
Why in the hell are people googling Amish so much?? Is it like a holiday or something??? Or are they planning to take over the world???
Yes they do Lee bear, and if not before, they certainly do now because they keep getting misdirected to this blog. We should really investigate this during the interview Jamboree. I’m gonna explore this issue way more… there is some depth. It could be like a 60 Minutes segment.
So here is easy access for you Amish folk….
And this song isn’t really Amish because I’m pretty sure it’s about sex… or at least that’s how I interpret it, but maybe that’s just me??? (Update: read the lyrics… I’m not crazy and/or perverted) Anyway, Amish people may want to say goodbye now… see you again tomorrow Amish people!
Poster sent me this video…. mucho gracias! I like this version…. and I like his outfit and his hair. Lee bear gets an A+!!!
Not literally. That would be pretty funny though. Could you imagine getting into a fender bender only to realize you hit Lee bear or he hit you?? I would probably cry, than laugh from the irony of it all, beg him to pay for it even though it was my fault (cry again if I have to), and then ask him to pose with THE HAT OF ALL FREAKIN’ HATS (I take it every where with me… just in case)
Anyway, fortunately no actual crashes happened. I just have no idea what to talk about so I’m going to post an old video someone sent me. Cindy sent this to me… so mucho gracias Cindy!
Annnnnnd, I’ve actually seen this one!! Dave Matthews Band’s “Crash Into Me” is definitely one of those songs that everyone has strong memories tied to it, as I do. So, when Lee bear originally performed this, I was told about it promptly and I used my best research skills to find it.
It’s nice to reminisce. This is how you all must feel on daily basis when you read this blog and my repetitive information.
There really isn’t anything funny about this.
But what is funny… is this shirt:
It’s like plaid and argyle had a baby on Lee bears shirt. He looks like he is going golfing.
