You can put down the phone and/or get off of Expedia… he’s not actually in Broooooklyn.
Staying with my “I have to bring stuff out of the vault because Lee D. is too busy going to the movies or doing actual work that he chooses not to share (probably the latter)” mode.. this is the day I bring out “Broooooklyn Bridge”.
There is no rhyme or reason why I chose this one.. I just picked it on random, kinda like how Lee D. decides when to work. ZING!
Lee D. has played “Broooooklyn Bridge” in many different venues and as many different characters. Let’s take a peeksie.. shall we??
1) Jupiter. This background is super intense. It reminds me of space and who doesn’t love the universe. Plus, look at Linc the Sink’s sweater. He looks like a Native American version of Zack Morris. All those things are some of my favorite. It was like this was a silent shout out to me.
2) Guidance counselor. This is set in a high school. Actually it looks like a church… but that doesn’t work for my theme… so pretend there are no Jesus’ hanging in the back ground. That guidance counselor can school you on the ins and outs of Broooooklyn, bridges and hair.
3) Non-gay Gap/new jeans. Though I was in full-blown fake fight mode at this point with Lee D… the new jeans won me over. And though it’s just because Linc the Sink threw a slushy at him (hence the new pants) I’m proud those jeans are now a part of his wardrobe. I really thought he was going to fall off the stool at one point… which would only have been funny the next day. Not at the moment.
(Side note: I just had an intense discussion about Justin Bieber with my friend for a good 30 minutes. I put Lee D. on hold to talk J Biebs.. what is my life coming too?)
4) Freddy Krueger. Love this shirt. Love when he sings anything in this shirt.
5) Lumber jacks like the Brooooooklyn Bridge too. Just because they’re aren’t any trees to cut down doesn’t mean they don’t like bridges that bridge the gap between Broooooklyn and Manhattan. And Lee D. knows that. This is his shout out to those tree chopping, bridge loving people.
Wow. That was a “Brooooooklyn Birdge” overload I’m sorry. And I’m still annoyed there is no guitar part… I get that his fingers need a break, but I’ve been asking for this for a while now.
Oh but wait…. he never listens to me so nevermind.
Lee D. gave me nothing. I don’t even think I wrote anything about him. I don’t like this. It feels all wrong. This blog has no heart when there isn’t any Lee D. (Look I even got all deep and poetic over it….)
When does this tour start?? Any promo coming up?? My Oprah… I’d even take those freakin’ Twitter party things at this point!
But, since none of the above is happening… I’m forced to listen to/watch “Earth Stood Still” videos. And now you poor people have to too.
Blame Lee bear… not me. I’m the one trying to work here… he’s off getting buff and obnoxiously showing off his muscles.
LOOK AT THAT! 2 different days! I just don’t know what to do anymore…. he’s slowly killing my career.
He chose the gym over my future. RUDE BEAR!
Anyway… since I may or may not have listened to “ESS” for more than half of my walk to work this AM…. this is what you’re gonna get.
Again.. tweet him and demand shit. He’s not listening to me and I have no material.
Go ahead compare and contrast!
Me too Lee bear… me too.

Wow… Kris with a K…. this is EX.CELL.ENT!!!
I don’t know why this happened… and to be honest I don’t really care. You could be going through a mental breakdown, and though that’s sad and awful… as long as you keep pulling stunts like this… I think you should hold off on taking medication.
Kris with a K was at some cleverly named holiday radio show from the looks of it (I see a Christmas tree) and decided to perform “Gangster’s Paradise”… but not only did he sing the chorus… he rapped the versus. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you… HE RAPPED. (and I use that term loosely depending on your rapping skills or lack there of… to me he is the next Eminem)
Again…not sure why and don’t really care. I consider myself a casual Kris with a K fan… but this just elevated my fan-ness.
I didn’t realize Kris with a K could relate to a song like “Gangster’s Paradise”… I guess this is what happens when people don’t talk about back stories and they slowly leak out with epic and heart wrenching performances like this one. I thank you, Kris with a K.
And if I can make a little request of you… I think you may be playing a show with a Mr. Lee DeWyze (I may have made that up, so disregard this if so) and if you could get a little rap duet together for that said show, me, my brain, my heart, and my soul would be forever in debt to you.
I expect the videos by the end of the week. Thanks!
Much love… one!
I’m assuming Lee bear had a show last night??? I have no idea to be honest, but I feel like he has been playing shows every night this past week, so I’m going to make a giant assumption that this is what he did last night as well. And if this did indeed happen, you know it was a cleverly titled show. I.E. Very Merry Berry Mixer… Christ-Mix Jam…O Holy Jam Session (okay that last one was completely made up, and not very funny)
I can’t find video of this show (I admit I only looked briefly and then got distracted, but I’ll look some more.. promise!) but I got some pictures!!!
For all we know these pics could be from a week ago, because I’m pretty sure this is the same outfit he’s had on all month.
And don’t worry I’m not turning on my favorite Lee bear. I think I said this before, but I’m a super fan of repeating outfits… when you gotta pay for laundry and/or hate doing laundry jeans can go a week (or two) without a washing. (Permitting of course they aren’t completely filthy… don’t be gross.) Don’t judge me.
But, I’m thinking he should probably get another t-shirt just to fool us. Add a pop of color. (I have no idea why this always turns into a fashion blog when I talk about Lee D. It’s never my intention, I promise)
Orrrrr maybe he is super rich and has 100 black tees from American Apparel (which is super fancy fancy) and 100 pairs of Abercrombie Jeans and 100 leather jackets (but he definitely only has one hat). And now he is judging me, (because I’m sure he reads this like a religion) and calling me a skank behind my back because I admitted to not doing laundry everyday. Now I’m embarrassed.
Anyway, you can see Lee bear schmoozing with the fans and some adorable children (who are fans as well because we had this discussion the other day) HERE. I don’t know who runs that website, but it’s a gem. Always has the latest pictures and just fun stuff. So good job person!!
This next picture is unrelated… or at least I think so because he has the same outfit on. So this may be from the same night… or last week, or when he was 17. Who really knows… and I don’t really care.
You can see all thee pictures from this event HERE. Another wonderful website that has more great things.
On a slightly related side note: Lee D. fans could rule the world. You have your shit together and your investigation skills are awesome. You could probably find Osama Bin Laden.
As I was writing this sorry excuse to post Lee D. pictures I’ve been listening to this (someone sent this to me awhile ago)
1) Alvin the chipmunk is so angsty.
2) My roommate walked in and I had to explain what I was listening to… I couldn’t find a reasonable excuse for me playing this so loudly, as if it was an actual song, so I changed the subject to the stormy weather. It was very awkward moment between roommates.
3) I listened to it 6 times as I wrote this…and if my math is correct, that’s about 21 minutes. And it took me a whole other 3 minutes to do that math so let’s say 24 minutes.
I know Lee bear, I know. And hey… you have the same jacket on.
First off who ever came up with the idea to name the radio show, that Lee DeWyze played at, the “chris-mix warm-up party” is a genius. They should get a raise. I should probably give them my paycheck, because their brain is working on a way more advance level than mine right now. Good job genius stranger!
Back to the topic: I just can’t seem to go one day without writing about Lee bear. And that must be due to the fact that he is running around the country and performing at cleverly titled radio shows. So, let’s not stop that my friend.
I think he is still in Cali (but you could never tell because he wears that grey hobo hat that I wish I owned, because let’s be real… it’s waaaaay colder here in NYC then in Cali Lee bear). And once again his wonderful fans (who could be stealth secret agents due to their sick multitasking skills) took videos of the concert. And they are even more wonderful because they post these vids on Twitter. I love Twitter because sometimes I sign in and all these little gems pop up. I provided a few of those gems for ya and this is all thanks to TeamLeeDeWyze. You people are good!
I know these are just snippets, but I mean is there anything more to say then the now known fact he is talented. He is awesome live, the album is great…. there isn’t really much more that he has to do to convince me to dig him.
But, if I could make one teeeeensy request it would be to add some sweet dance moves…..
And he obviously has a blasty blast doing dance numbers.
So let’s add some choreography shall we. I bet Lincoln can pop and lock it with the best of them. And the cute guitarist Chris Wrate looks like he can do some great break dance moves in his skinny jeans. And that drummmer, RJ??, don’t even tell me that guy doesn’t have the swag and the moves. I won’t believe you.
Anyway, back to the actual show that unfortunately (or fortunately??) didn’t have a dance break, you can see pictures from it HERE. There are a few performance pictures…. but most are just him with the fans again. What a guy!
And I don’t appreciate Linc the sink (Prison Break??? Anyone? Anyone??) enough…. look at that intensity as he tickles those Yamaha ivories.
Someone wonderful on Twitter, by the name of Leah (you go girl!) recorded the interview that I so poorly recapped below and put it on YouTube. So listen to this so you can really hear Lee D’s words.
I’m going to type random thoughts as I listen to him on the radio (live) for the first time ever because I’m never home. It’s strange hearing it live.
-Lee thinks no instruments are dumb… he’s going to be real. It’s real dumb.
-It’s a shame he can’t meet J Lo, but she’ll survive.
-He was not molested by the TSA, but instead let them look at his bones and muscles. Good choice.
-He appreciates really personal questions??? Lie. It’s okay not to be a politician all the time buddy.
-Cheerios is your favorite cereal??? BORING! Coco Puffs/Lucky Charms are the better answer… I’m glad you changed it last minute.
-Ideal date?? After it you want to have a second date. Logical answer.
-Ninja Turtles are the bombdotcom… I agree.
-His real name is Leon??? WTF?! Learn something new everyday.
-”Little Drummer Boy” is his favorite Christmas song??? Ironic he just sang that. Hmmmm.
-If his song could be on an episode of Vampire Diaries or a Leo DiCaprio movie… I’d appreciate that. Or maybe Harry Potter???
-He never does play “It’s Gotta Be Love”… and we have all been there. I always wake up thinking I’m in love on Sunday morning. (Spoiler alert: It never is. Sad story.)
-He just can’t stop talking about his underwear… we get it you like boxer-briefs.
Good interview dude.
I’ve never typed so fast in my life to keep up with the questions and my random thoughts.
This was so random. I apologize for this. I couldn’t decide who I was talking to… him directly (like he’s reading it) or you guys. My pronouns and nouns were all messed up.
Ry Ry dries himself off with Benjamins after a bath. And can now buy as many J Biebs 3D purple glasses as he likes.
He just signed a 3 year contract with Clear Channel for $ 60 Million.
$60 Million?!?!!? WTF?!?! I hope he invests wisely… and I don’t mean taking Julianne Hough on a shopping spree in Paris.
I’m not even worth that much money. Like as in me… as a human being. Not that Mamadukes would ever put a price on my being (or that you should ever tell your children how much they are worth)… but I’m pretty confident that $60 mil is worth waaaaaaay more than she would price me at.
I pray to Oprah that Ry Ry would lend Mamadukes the money if I’m ever held for ransom and the asking is $60 mil. (I have no idea why this would ever be the case)
There’s nothing else to say. Let’s just listen to Lil Wayne’s “Milli” and think of Ry Ry, all while we call our parents and ask them how much they would pay for us.
All kidding aside…. guy works hard. He has 838345389 jobs. I would never want to work as hard as him even for that amount of money. I’d rather write this for free and eat saltines for the rest of my life.
