Do you all know who Taylor Kitsch is?? I can only reference him as hot, greasy, always drunk football player (couldn’t tell ya what position he played) from Friday Night Lights, a show that stopped being on real television years ago and had a home at Direct TV or something. (watch it on Netflix)
Anyway, he was hot and looked like this….
He also had a Texas drawl and wore cowboy boots with EVERYTHING, and that would normally call for mockery, but for some reason it worked.
So, that guy… he’s no longer playing football on Direct TV, I think *crosses fingers* he’s playing Jesus.
Right?? Jesus totally wore things like that because he was fashion forward.
Actually, it’s for a movie John Carter and I swear on my desire for Taylor Kitsch to play Jesus, that it’s about a Civil War vet who goes to Mars to fight off 12 foot barbarians to save a princess. True story.
It’s not quite this sex pot…. (notice the cowboy boots)
… but if I go see John Carter and read the bible while he’s walking around on-screen, it might be like he’s playing Jesus.
First off, I thesaurus-ed the word “ignore” and got “pay no heed”, so that’s my favorite phrase ever now. I can’t wait to break up with someone and shout “pay no heed!!!” at random moments. He’ll be so confused.
Red Beanie Blog (Seriously go there and look at all the fun Lee D stuff she has. I think she is a big fan) apparently went to go see Lee D in Texas and while he was not wearing his Howdy Doody shirt (damn it!) he wore his baby Gap tee and sang “Earth Stood Still”.
I’m suddenly a massive fan of “Dear Isabelle”. The rhyme scheme of “belle”, “well” and “hell” is so genius and I blame my cerebellum for not coming up with it first. *shakes fist at Lee D video*
And here’s another view of “The Day The Earth Stood Still” (that’s not the name of the song… why does he do that???), also know as “Part 1 of The 24 Hours The Planet Didn’t Move On A Tuesday” (if he can re-name the song, so can I), because Red Beanie Blog got him to perform the song twice. Or she is a better fan than I, and saw him twice in Texas and he doesn’t know how to do laundry because he wore the same outfit. Either or.
You know what my favorite new song is from Lee D??
Nope… not “Pretty Eyeballs”. Eyeballs kind of creep me out to be honest. Pretty or not I just have a fear of the gooey-ness.
And not the one about the birds. Birds probably have Ebola and of course it’s the perfect lullaby because after a hummingbird bites you, you will die. (And yes hummingbirds bite. Probably)
It’s this one!!!
It’s kind of dance-y. And by dance-y I mean, Lee D is dying to dance during this song because his shoulder look like dancing baby’s when he hears his internal rhythm. And Linc the Sink is tickling those ivories to the “beat”.
Enjoy those videos and high five Red Beanie Blog via Twitter.
(Red Beanie Blog is clearly superwoman, because not only does she keep up with all things Lee D, she’s a videographer as well. She may or may not be the white Oprah. Just saying.)
I’m just going to showcase my foreign language skills as well as my knowledge of all things Texas. I thank Lee D. for this exercise.
Texas fact : The Texas state motto is “friendship”…. but I’m pretty sure they still have the death penalty… soooooo that’s kind of ironic.
Anyway…. remember this??
Okay, well that was the show I was super professional and reviewed (I gave him a good one… do not fret) and during my favorite song (which I didn’t quite know that yet) he brought a girl on stage and pretty much only looked at her once. She wasn’t even in his peripheral vision. I couldn’t control my laughter and I think this may have been the point that I dropped my book and it fell under the stage and I had to ask the photographer man to get it for me. So awkward.
Anyway… at the Texas show Lee D. brought another guest on stage and did the same thing.
Linc the Sink knows what’s up! He looked at the girl and I think he gave her the head nod.
Good song… the fact that it’s the new single is growing on me.
This was really just to portray that I could speak spanish (kinda), know some facts about Texas, and listen to “Earth Stood Still”.
That is going to be the title for every one of my Lee D in Texas posts because to me he’s a cowboy down in the giant state of Texas. I’ve never been to Texas but I’m pretty sure people would know I didn’t belong the second I open my mouth, but people are nice in Texas right??
My first question is…. were any of the Bush’s there?? I’m pretty sure George Bush (Senior and Junior) would be massive Lee D. fans just because he’s never had a child out-of-wedlock and the Bush’s seem to be pro-no baby unless you have a ring on your left hand.
Is it too early for political jokes?? Probably. Definitely no political jokes before 10AM. Sorry!
Anyway… Lee D. was in Texas A&M last night, and I have no idea what that means but my friend went to that University and said it’s a giant ass school so YAY LEE!! I love when he plays giant ass shows, because that means more people will go and see him and there is potential to lasso in some new fans! HAH! Get it?? Lasso!
Ready y’all for some video.
1) I wonder if Ben Harper hates this song now that he’s getting divorced?? Is that true or did I just spread a rumor.
2) Are dudes recording this??? They’re probably cute frat guys from Texas. I’m going to need confirmation on this.
3) Is Lee D. wearing cowboy boots??
4) This is me pretty much demanding answers from people who were there. Sorry.
5) Linc the Sink needs to get a new American Apparel hoodie. He wore that already… he wore it 3 times already.
6) Lee D. covers this song like a champ. A rock star.
7) There are so many finger prints on his guitar he should probably get a cloth and clean that. He could never commit a crime because Stabler and B.D. Wong would catch him.
That was a good performance. I approve that <— I don’t know why I said that, like it matters.
I’m gonna go find more videos! <—- check me out recapping “on time” and doing some legwork.
Wow. It was like fate. I just happened to be near my computer and I just happened to step on to Twitter and he just happened to tweet this picture.
I feel like Anderson Cooper when he’s on location and breaking news. This may or may not win me the Nobel Peace Prize in a few years time.
I’ll be sure to thank DeWyze.
PS That’s him at soundcheck. He has a show tonight at A&M Texas or something. YEE HAW!
Billy Bush that is…. I highly doubt George Bush knows who Lee bear is.
Actually… no. George Bush totally watched American Idol and voted. He had nothing better to do. But, he totes mcgotes voted for Texas stallion Casey James. Lee D. has no twang!
Anyway.. Billy Bush.. who is cousins with George Bush (I swear to Oprah.. Wikipedia it) is having Lee D. on his show. Or something.
He tweeted it… and the fact that one of the Bush’s are allowed to Tweet astounds me (get your cousin on that dude) and the fact that this is his picture (below) is even worse.
Even though I was taught never to trust a Bush… I’m gonna trust this guy. His name is Billy and he interviews celebrities for a living. We’d probably be friends.
So.. trust him. Lee D will be talking to that guy and apparently performing.
And as per usual… I have a few requests Lee D.
oh yes! And wipe that smirk off your face… I’m being totally serious Lee James (?) DeWyze.(<— see?? serious!)
1) Wear the hat of all freakin’ hats.
2) Wear no hat at all and do your hair.
3) Prove to me that you aren’t color blind and wear an outfit that portrays that.
4) Sing “Earth Stood Still”.
5) I’ll even accept “Stay Here”… Dancing Baby is obsessed.
6) Say you vote democrat to Billy Bush and see what he does.
7) And this is the biggest request of all… if Billy Bush asks you about the new judges for Idol… throw a drink in his face. They will totally give you a bottle of water… just toss that right on him.
See?? Not difficult at all. You only have to do 40% of that. I’ll let you do the math with your fancy fancy calculator watch.
You write that down. And you changed your outfit so quickly.
Anyway… this all happens at 1PM pacific, that means it’s what time on the east coast???
I will officially stop doing work at 4PM and watch this.
Thanks Billy Bush and Lee bear.
Ed. Note: I’d like to dedicate this post to a John Smith (tell Pocahontas I said “hello”). John Smith does not like me… as he so kindly told me after my last American Idol recap.
Well, out of all honesty. I think you suck. As a professional musician, i can say the people you critisized are worthy. You are wrong. Apart from Emma. Who is adorable. As i skimmed through this pile of crap, i tried to ignore your grammatic errors. If blogging is your proffesion. You suck at your job. Learn how to wright.
Please take notice of John Smith shitting on the written English word above. I’d like to dedicate all my grammatical errors, run on sentences and improper capitalizations to you good sir.
They all went to the Austin, Texas American Idol auditions. I’ve never seen so many cowboy boots.
Ohhhh 2 hours tonight. It didn’t even start as I write this intro, and I already don’t want to watch this until 10PM… but I’m going to do it. I do it for all of you. You dedicated people. You are welcome.
I’m annoyed by that apology. That was dumb. At least Nigel didn’t show up. It wasn’t even funny. That just proves that Nigel Lythgoe is an un-funny, upper class, white man.
In tradition… my live feed sucks and I have no idea what’s happening in the very beginning of this show… all I know is it’s happening in Texas. So… Republicans will be running around. GREAT. Republicans with a twang. BAM!
Southern accents crack me up!! I just can’t help but not understand what they’re saying. And I’m sure they would feel the same about me. We could bond in our differences. Maybe.
(I’m sure I messed up these people’s names once again. I do that all the time. They clearly don’t mean all that much to me. I’m careless with their proper nouns and their individuality)
This kid loves his sister way too much. This is weird. Siblings are supposed to hate each other. Competition needs to happen between the two… that’s how families interact.
Thank Oprah he didn’t sing this in a country twang. I would probably have shut my computer off.
I can’t tell if he’s gay or a frat boy.
Chill bumps?!?!? Are these two sleeping together?? He’s sleeping with his sister.
My feed went out… I don’t know what happened to this girl. I heard sad music and sniffles so I’m assuming they hated her.
Did they need to show this girl crying more??
Yes… sing Miley Cyrus… that will convince them.
This chick needs to stop. Stop singing and stop crying.
SHE BELIEVES IN MILEY CYRUS. I can’t wait to see a video of her smoking pot within the year. She’ll be a fun mess.
Circle of life??? I want my life to end. His swoop isn’t even decent. It’s silver and green. Kill me now.
Why do all Texans tuck in their shirt????? They look dumb. They do know that’s not fashionable right??
Ryan Seacrest outed himself on TV. Thank Oprah! He must feel so free.
Oh good. He has cowboy in his blood.
He’s telling a sad story. I’m sorry I made fun of him.
I kinda had a crush on him… but his accent would break us up. I can’t understand him.
I wish I couldn’t see the outline of his balls in those tight pants… un-tuck your shirt. He looks like a moron. (I’m such a bitch tonight)
I love his mom. Can I vote for her??
J Lo looks like Selena Y Los Dinos. I’m glad that happened.
This girl is scary. SHE IS NOT CRYING? BECAUSE OF RY RY!?!? This is weird.
Wow… J Lo is insecure. She needs to be told she’s beautiful.
I’m not even going to comment on that chicken move she did.
I don’t care how good she is… I can’t get that chicken thing out of my head.
She is going to regret doing that chicken thing tomorrow morning. Just like every other sorority girl in Texas. BA DUM CHHHH!!
That Glee commercial made my life. Cory Monteith’s smile rejuvenated me.
I already want to shoot these two. You can carry a gun in Texas right?? They’ll be broken up in about 5 months.
The chick was good. I liked her little braid thing she had going.
His last name is Fink. That gets my vote.
He sings really slow. Talk Real Slow Fink is his Native American Name.
The show tonight is boring the hell out of me.
This girl was talking about me. That’s exactly what I think of when I think of the south. I just think they all carry guns and eat a lot of dead cow. Oh and they love George Bush. All that or they’re rich Republicans. Either or. I feel like she just scolded me. I’m sorry South.
She’s good though. Country twang… but good.
I think I’m in a bad mood tonight. I shouldn’t be doing this. Oopsie!
That armadillo girl should probably be on medication. Just a suggestion.
Okay… he’s Amish and is from California. I knew I liked him the best out of all the Texans.
He does look like Seth Rogan.
I love his little Jew fro.
Holy shit he scatted. I like him. Him and his Jew fro.
Shocking he isn’t from Texas.
OHHHH 1st hour done. AGHHHHHHHH!!!!
Wait… it’s only 1 hour!?!?!!?!
I like Texas so much more. I want to visit right now.
PS And because I’m an idiot and was apparently to bothered to pay attention and multi task while I was writing I missed Lee bear’s “Beautiful Day”. I’m going to say it just didn’t happen… but people on Twitter convinced me. I believe everything they say. So listen to it now… if like me, you missed it.
I like the acoustic version better. Deal with it.
Is everyone okay with this???
Pittsburgh Steelers you kosh???
How about you, Green Bay?? Do you have anybody with a pitch whistle you’d rather have do this??
Christina Aguilera has been booked to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl XLV (that means 45.. BOO YAH!) this year on February 6th.
“I have been performing the Anthem since I was seven years old and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true. I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event.”
Well… excuse me then Miss I’ve been super talented since I was 7. I was still figuring out how to spell my last name when I was 7. And don’t even get me started on the trouble with cursive…..
There really isn’t much to say about this. Christina Aguilera is good and she always sings the National Anthem beautifully, and waves her hands around a lot. It’s very entertaining to watch.
P.S. You are all super impressed with the football facts I just spewed aren’t you??? I had to look it up. It’s the most research I’ve done since I started this in July.
What is happening???
I woke up, and Twitter was all a twitter (I love saying that) because Alex Lambert, my favorite mullet on this planet, says he’s homeless. Or is homeless… I don’t know why you would lie about it.
(wow… he’s adorable)
I immediately thought of Adam Lambert (because I get them mixed up sometimes) and I thought “Is he now homeless because he spent a lot of money on that Oprah-awful weave???” I was worried and felt bad for making fun of his hair.
But then I realized, I’m silly and mixing up my Lamberts.
Once I got to the correct Lambert and checkity checked out Twitter… this is what I read: (Oh and feel free to marvel at my awesome screen caps)
2) Why can’t he go back to Texas, have a bed, and do music there for a bit?? I mean I get it… Texas may not be a grand time, but you’ll have a home.
3) He doesn’t have any friends he can crash with? You lived with a bunch of people in that house. Miley Cyrus’ ex, that looked like Gaston, can’t let you crash on his couch?? Your friends suck dude. While finding a home, I’d look for some new friends.
DED-I-CA-TION! I can’t even dedicate myself into typing out the long and emphasized version of “dedication” correctly. Glad there is free WiFi wherever he is though… because I’m sure he wouldn’t be able to afford the internet charge. I’m still disturbed about his awful friends… I’m going to call my friends after this and ask them the hypothetical “if I was poor….” question.
WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN??? Is he in a gang to make money??? Does he turn tricks?? Why would you say this all on the internet??
I wanna know now… that’s like saying “I have a secret, but can’t tell you”… that annoys me and makes me super curious.
I hope he isn’t stripping… maybe he can dress as a woman an audition for the new Lady Gaga video???
Alex: I’ll do anything… I need money
Lady Gaga: You don’t look like a woman enough
Alex: Wait… check out my hair *shakes head and mullet falls down*
Lady Gaga: YOU’RE HIRED!
I really don’t understand why he hasn’t been signed. This is just another reason why I need to have a job in my actual field of study. I would have scooped this kid up!! I like to apologize to Alex Lambert right now… I failed you!! If I was more on my game, this wouldn’t even be an issue. We’d be kicking it somewhere fabulous and you would have the shiniest mullet ever.
And I’d also like to say… how does this kid not have a girlfriend?? He’s so adorable and so talented… and I’m going to assume nice. But the fact that he is girlfriend less is not really the important issue here…. that was just a side note.
I don’t even want to believe this… I almost rather it be that he is crying wolf and/or is just a super dramatic kid or something.
Let’s pretend this isn’t happening and listen to his awesome song with whistling… whistling makes everything better.
He could even get a job as Marty McFly’s double. Maybe they could do a re-release, digitally remastered version of Back To The Future and Alex Lambert could do the re-shoots or something???
Listen… I’m just trying to fix this craziness.
