Posted September 21, 2012on:
I know you already hate all my One Direction posts today (and you bet your ass I have another one because those lads released a new single AND music video yesterday) but this is going to be good. You are going to like this.
Raise your hand if you like Fresh Prince of Bel – Air?? Raise your hand if you love the theme song?
Well, keep both those hands up (both hands should be up because I asked two questions that are guaranteed “yes” answers) because One Direction rap-ed (what’s the past tense of “rap”?) and beat boxed to the theme song. It’s quite charming.
It’s shocking to me that the nerdiest one of them all, Liam (sorry), is the beat boxer. Call me racist, but I think it would have been Zayn.
Now that you are a super fan and intrigued— how about some “Use Somebody”. I’m sure Kings of Leon LOOOOOOOVE when boy bands sing this song. It’s actually quite good.
You are a little bit impressed… don’t lie. Look at that little Irish one strumming the guitar!
BUT BACK OFF, STYLES! That curly-headed mess is mine.
I’m actually afraid to google LOVE chat because I know what’s going to come up in Google search.
Last night, Lee Bear through a Twitter Jamboree involving only himself and tweeted like 90 things at once…. and one of those involved the LOVE chat. (Obviously read those tweets from bottom to top because that’s how my LOVE chats go)
What surprise?? What did I miss? I’m kinda glad the LOVE chat is the surprise though. I’ve never been to a LOVE chat. It sounds exciting. Can we bring guests?? I feel like it’s 1968.
Now guys… I won’t be able to participate in this LOVE chat because I do other things on Tuesday, but I still need to know his favorite planet, favorite president, what he thinks of the new American Idol judges, and if I could pay him $100 to wear an orange suit to his wedding?
And as for these new songs… I want new ones. Not gonna lie, I’m getting a little tired of the old ones and the super old ones. Let’s hear this new shizz we’ve been hearing so much about.
That being said… Lee Bear played a show last night somewhere in a different time zone and here are some songs from it. Of course I got these from Red Beanie Blog and an obvious Lee Bear fan, BLKenner (which by the way, reminds me of the Manzo Brothers of Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you watch the show you get it and may be laughing… and if you’re not laughing because you don’t watch great television, mind your business).
Right off the bat I support where the possible supporter of the Manzo brothers is standing; Linc the Sink is in clear view and he looks like a professor to me. Professor Linc the Sink is the handsome older man it’s totally inappropriate to have a crush on. He’s the George Clooney of this duo.
“Use Somebody”<—- the hoe down version. (On a side note… is the lead singer of KOL still alive? Or in rehab? I’m gonna google that. *google* Ok. No rehab… still alive. We didn’t miss anything)
“Pretty Eyeballs” <– you guys love this one.
“Annabelle” <— Osama Bin Bongos with two eyes and no criminal record is present. I approve.
Anyway, shalt we not forget about this LOVE chat. I know you guys are like the government when it comes to Lee D, so a transcript of this will be floating around and I hope this is the most ridiculously hilarious conversation between him and you.
PS I just googled “Lee D Love chat” and on some random page was this GIF. I’m not even going to question it, but let’s just assume I showed you what you’re in for on Tuesday.
That’s seriously the point of this all. I just want to congratulate Lee D on an excellent plaid shirt with the Howdy Doody shoulder accents. And I’m sure you are all 134% behind me on this one.
Now, let’s watch some videos from when Lee Bear hit up Texas in that great plaid shirt. I’m sure George Bush was sitting there in a similar plaid shirt…. and then wondering if Lee D was a republican or not.
And yes I truly believe that George Bush is the face of Texas. That’s what everyone in NYC assumes, so just go with it.
Many things about this…..
First, I’m really into what I like to call “junior high, open button down with a t-shirt underneath” look (especially with the Texan touch), but what I’m not into is the porn music he walks out to.
Is the 1974 porn music necessary??? No. It isn’t. Definitely not as necessary as that shirt
Second, super glad Linc the Sink is single because I’ve always wanted to have a Casio keyboard in my apartment. Not super glad that the Osama Bin Laden bongo player (my latest bff) is not there in Texas. I hope George Bush didn’t do anything to his eyes, if ya know what I mean???
I like this song, so watch it or we’re breaking up. <– that’s how a majority of my relationships end.
Thank you to Red Beanie Blog for being the white Oprah to all things Lee D. And thank you to Starstrucksarah84, or as I like to call her starstruckstevenspielberg84, for taking awesome video.
After seeing some videos from Lee D’s Gramercy Theater show, I realize my recap does not recap the show at all. (by the way… last shameless plug… check it out HERE). I mention like 5 songs, as if his set was 30 minutes long, and then he went to go get a hot dog around the block.
I highly apologize for this. But we can thank asdfghkayla for being responsible and recording the Lee D NYC show. But before we get into that, serious question: Kayla (I assume your name is Kayla) did you or did you not seizure your fingers on the keyboard to get the first half of your YouTube account name?? I admire you, if you did.
Anyway, thanks to this amazing girl for capturing all the songs that I pretended didn’t happen because I was too concerned about bleeding out from my heels and/or admiring his blazer so much.
“Naked As We Came” . I like to call this one “naked”.
“Princess”/ “new song, old song”. I think I talked about this one, but this is the closest he got to foot stomping a la Mumford & Sons so I had to repost.
“Use Somebody”. Beyonce is put to shame. Her cover of this song can just stop.
“A Song About Love”. I enjoyed this song so much live I forgot to mention it. It was hiding in my heart.
“Earth Stood Still”. I just had too!
Ahhh good times, good times.
Okay… well the only way I’m seeing this is D Man clearly didn’t want my ears to wait any longer and he released the official version of “The Last Goodbye”. Gracias D Man.
I can’t decide who to *high-five* first…. D Man or Ryan Tedder.
Go to DavidCookOfficial.com to check out the new single “The Last Goodbye”.
Good shit, huh??
That melody in the first 4 lines of the 2nd verse (I know my heart and ears just got really specific. Sorry) OH MY OPRAH! That is one of the greatest melodies I’ve heard in a 2nd verse in a long time. Usually that middle piece could be a throw away because the opening is so strong and then it’s cradled with a good chorus… but no. D Man gets freakin’ fancy.
Can I join the D Man fan club?? Will you guys let me in?? I want in!
I like this jam…. I like the lyrics, I like “whoooa’s” (a little “Use Somebody”-ish), I like his belt in the chorus… and that 2nd verse; beautiful.
I don’t really know D Man’s radio history… but I vote for top 40. I don’t see why not.
I promise I’ll stop re-living this Iowa concert. This will be the last one. Let’s live in the present and I totally promise I’ll be up to date from this point on.
1) He’s such a little dance monster. I’m buying him Dance Dance Revolution. I think he secretly loves to shake it.. but so does everyone else on this planet. If you say you don’t like to dance, (no matter how bad you are), you’re lying.
2) I’ve never seen him sing “Hallelujah” unless he’s soaked in blue lighting. It was like a different song with the red/purple lighting.
Those were such bizarre thoughts.
It’s so hard to come up with an ironic title that has to do with voting and Lee D. songs. You have no idea. So, just be prepared for really shitty and unfunny titles today.
First off… I had no idea this place was called Rockit Ranch. I LOVE ALLITERATION!! And I hate farms… but if there are rockets and voting booths…. I’M THERE!!
By the way.. that would be Lee D.’s face if he was on a rocket. That would be anybody’s face really… but this is about him.
Want to see Lee D.’s pores??? Watch this video.
If he sneezed his spit would get on this person’s camera. She is dedicated. I hope she had some Purell, just in case.
Anyway… I like this song when it’s done like this… I’m over KOL and their douchebag-ness and there drums. This acoustic version is so much better.
I hope in a year from now, I’m not saying the same thing about Lee bear. I think it’ll be okay though.
I wonder if he runs a comb through his beard??? Is that weird to wonder?? Yes. It totally is. I’ll admit that.
Wow… looks who’s getting all political in the hizzouse!!!
He totally met Obama and Oprah. Obama’s hot speech writer told him what to say….. I’m gonna kill him.
I can barely understand what he’s saying… he’s definitely speaking another language in the beginning… but he’s saying something about pulling a lever and voting for someone who won’t take away your rights.
And then at the 30 second mark he says something so joyous. So heavenly. He says “obviously thank you to Roc…. “.
You’re welcome Lee bear.
Oh! What?? he said “thank you Rock The Vote”???? That’s dumb. What has promoting the importance of the ability to vote for our leaders ever done for you Lee bear??
Good plan Lee bear… good plan.
Now to the music:
1) He did not fall off the stool. He’s getting so good at this balance thing.
2) He sounded great. Shocking.
3) I don’t think the Kings Of Leon vote. Just saying. I think they’d be more into coups.
I’m really into this concert from last night. Politics give me so much energy. This is totally gonna get me a job at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
I should probably post a picture of him last night.
Did he mention anything about his favorite President?? If I missed that…. I’d be so sad.
For some reason I missed this song from when he did back in SEPTEMBER. I don’t know why I get mad at him for not listening to me… because I clearly ignore him at times. We have very bad communication.
This is one of those times I just pretended he didn’t exist.
Lee D. was in the best outfit of his life, with his hair exploding with awesome-ness, and playing a show in his home town. And with him was Linc the Sink (who was a nobody to me then) and some other guys (sorry… I still have no idea who they are) and Lee D. put down the guitar to sing “Use Somebody”.
If he’s ever going to fall off the stool it’s now. He doesn’t have the guitar to evenly distribute his weight. (That sounded so scientific)
Anyway.. let’s watch.
1) He looks funny without a guitar. I wish he’d dance or something.
2) Linc the Sink looks like Fidel Castro still.
3) That’s seriously the best outfit. If he was a Ken doll… I’d dress him in that. My little girl dreams are before me!
4) I will bet any of you 10 bucks that someone is going to tattoo the LD symbol, the thing on the backdrop, on to their bodies. It might have been done already.
5) I wonder if Caleb Followill gets pissed at Lee bear for singing this. That guy’s kinda a douche right??
6) He’s not gonna fall of this stool. He’s better at science than I am, and he’s going to evenly distribute his own weight. Damn you science bear!
7) He has a pretty voice.
GOOD VIDEO! I’ve never seen that. Mucho gracias BlondieBlue!
Get funky Lee bear!! And now I know he can get down and funky thanks to KWOnlyDreaming/Karen. Mucho gracias chica! (BTW I am not even the tiniest part of Spanish, I just wish I spoke Spanish fluently…. but I barely speak proper English)
I love when he does “Use Somebody”, but that’s an obvious statement. I think that may have been one of the first blogs I wrote about him actually. Ahhhhh when Lee bear was just Lee DeWyze to me. Memories. You can read this all HERE. And FYI this is a point in my life when I fact checked and was not funny, because I am spewing some serious Lee bear facts out. I impressed myself reading it back. I have no idea where that girl went… but it’s funnier when she isn’t around.
Look at him grooving… he actually has some rhythm. He had us all fooled he was a bad dancer. What a silly
And he was so charming in that video. This just hit me all of a sudden.
I’m not even being funny today with him… I’m swooning. I don’t like this side. He needs to send out a stupid tweet or something because it’s like I’m crushing.
I don’t even want to. It’s like he broke me.
I’m praying to Oprah he does something stupid today…. that’s how this fake relationship works.
