Remember that time I never once looked for the new “Earth Stood Still” video, but you all found it because you care about me, my well-being, and the well-being of my ears??? I certainly do. (Thank you Cindy and Lori for this )
But, before we get into that… let’s just bask in the awesome-ness of that title. I think it has something to do with the 17 Starburst Jelly beans I popped into my mouth. I really can’t wait for this resurrection business to be done with because I have eaten so much sugar since Lent (which by the way I “gave up” for Lent), it’s insane.
Insanely awesome because when I’m on a sugar rush I come up with titles like that.
ANYHOO, “Earth Stood Still”. Holy God Lee D… don’t ever stop singing this song.
I don’t care if in 5-9 years it comes out he actually hates everything about the Live It Up album, he better keep this one in his repertoire. I seriously do not think I can function without it in my life (much like the Starburst Jelly Beans)
And Lee D. agrees.
Don’t you dare sit there and say that isn’t the most perfect melody you ever heard!
I take back all the things I said about the “Eyeball Part II” being the new “Earth Stood Still”…. I didn’t mean it.
ESS is my first love, will always be the one for me. It’s like that kid you had a crush on in 7th grade Biology…. it never goes away.
NEW SONG! NEW SONG! NEW SONG!
Okay… I know you guys already know all the words to “Open Your Eyes”, but I just heard it 3 minutes ago, so bear with me. I’m still on the excitement train.
I love when new Lee D music comes around because chances are it’s like playing a game of Operation. He loves body parts! LOVES THEM!
The boy, who did NOT get a haircut, knows how to write a pop song.
Good piano riff? Check!
Something about eyes? Check!
Throw in some heart metaphors? Check!
Definitely talk about breathing?? CHECK!
A gee-tar anyone?? CHECK!
Someone’s been listening to Taylor Swift.
I’m gonna need the new album to be like this. I can stand behind that. I’m not gonna lie… I was a little afraid I wasn’t gonna like his new stuff because I’m not the biggest fan of Slumberland and So I’m Told, but this sounds like music that people will actually buy. Or that I will actually buy and I’m selfish, so that’s what I care about.
So far, so good Lee Bear!
PS I refuse to believe Linc the Sink is behind that keyboard.
Sorry. This is more Lee D. from the Harry Potter themed bowling alley. Apparently, he was there for 9 hours and didn’t stop singing because here are two songs I just found now.
“Dear Isabelle” who I’m convinced is that dumb girl from the zombie movie who killed him, and “Hallelujah”, which is sort of fitting because I hear it’s Lent and that is appropriate right??
We were all just transported down South. And Dancing Baby’s tiny heart just broke.
Now, we all know I’m over “Hallelujah”… but it’s Sunday. I’ll post it. And this one is special because he messes up in the beginning and that makes it….
“Hallelujah… THE REMIX!”. I’m pretty sure that’s what he now titles it.
And listen… I have no idea how to embed this. So. if you want to hear him mess up and say “shit”… click that picture below. It may or may not be worth it.
Since new videos just resurface like precious stones out of the pyramids in Egypt (that makes no sense) I’m pretty sure we’ll find one of him doing a Justin Bieber cover in a few days. There is no other explanation, because he wouldn’t NOT do it.
If anyone have the video… don’t keep it from me.
(Editor’s note: This has been sitting in my draft box since 6AM this morning. I got up because I couldn’t sleep and then tried to write and gave up in 15 minutes…. it may or may not be funnier than it was at 6AM)
Are people over Lee D. and bowling… because I’m Not. And in reality… I’m just not over that jacket. I sewed piping on my own black blazer in honor of it all. (Holla Tim Gunn). Jackets like that deserve to me memorialized and nothing else.
Remember in psychology 101 when you would discuss facial expressions and human emotion?? I tried to find the universal image of that, but clearly the world-wide web is just obsessed with John Travolta’s face and/or Scientology and this came up in the results.
His face actually looks the same in every picture; massive butt chin and scientology lover is all I can get out that…. but it was too funny to pass up even if it does not prove my point.
Good thing I have Lee D.’s face to teach psychology and human emotion. Now, this may vary from your text-book… but trust me. I have a college degree. (Swear to Oprah I do)
Lee D. is beginning to laugh at joke he’s telling in his head whilst singing. I guess you can group this in with a multi-tasking facial expression too.
This is the expression of someone who is about to sneeze. I’m pretty sure.
This is just him singing. I already pulled it and posted it so I had to use it.
That is a man whistling. Whistling while he works… literally.
Remember “fight or flight”…. this is kinda like that. He’s panicking because he just saw the silhouette of a man in a top hat and wasn’t sure if Abe Lincoln’s ghost came to bowl with him or not. Kinda creepy.
He’s just shouting. This is definitely during “Stay”.
Okay… so reading this now at 3:20PM it’s not as funny. This was definitely written in my delusional state. But, what can I say… I didn’t graduate with a psych degree… I only took psychology 101 at that was senior year in high school.
I’m not a doctor!
Listen to “Sweet Serendipity/Fast Car” because it’s genius. It’s as if Lee D. studied psych in college.
And then just listen to “Earth Stood Still” because this song will MAKE YOU a genius after listening to it.
Feel smarter already don’t ya??
But is there really any other way to bowl??? Absolutely freakin’ not.
Red Beanie Blog is just on her game today and she does not need bumpers for life… unlike myself today, so she bestowed upon me the greatest picture ever.
Play “Earth Stood Still” when you look at this to set the scene for pure wonderful-ness.
1) He isn’t wearing the proper footwear. What a rebel.
2) That jacket is so outstanding.
3) I’m surprised he picked a green ball. I thought he’d request a black one.
4) I wonder if he got a strike??
That picture is so perfect. That’s exactly what I requested. I want that on a shirt so I can wear that shirt while I bowl.
Oh and I have pictures:
He obviously just got done saying that.
Reason #89345739 I suck as a Lee D. fan. I would never ever make that for him or pay for that. I bow down to whoever did that. Annnnnd I’m going to be so pissed if someone doesn’t get me a giant cookie cake with my face on it for my birthday. It’s in about 2 weeks friends… get on it. (And I’m talking to you Dev… you want to win against Taylor Swift don’t you???) That looks so delicious.
Action shot!! Look at that concentration!
Ask me what won’t happen at Interview Jamboree?? Bowling is the answer to that. It would just turn into a huge fight.. I know myself.
You can see more of these pictures HERE. There are some good ones in there. And obviously that jacket and the hair are the stars.

Alrighty, people…. this is the revamped recap of last nights show. I half-assed it earlier and I feel guilty and awful about it. I’m gonna bang out a hilarious one right now. (Hopefully)
….Kinda like Lee D. banged out the most awesome outfit of his bowling career. Take a peeksie.
I promise you I just said out loud “I’m obsessed with that jacket… obsessed”. I think he has promise. This gave me faith.
Lee D. surprised the audience with his new cover “Naked As We Came”… and I use that term for lack of a better one. Bit of advice for Lee D… it isn’t a surprise if it’s on Twitter. Twitter is close enough to Oprah’s law, so everyone knew what song you were doing.
He’s not very good at surprises… actually he sucks at them. You know what would have been a surprise?? A Justin Bieber song. I would have fallen of my chair and he would have fallen off his chair, because I’m sure the people there would attack him on stage for that. <— I think I may be the only J Biebs enthusiast here… but whatever… time will prove me right. Would people really freak out if he covered a Biebs song?? I need to know this.
That sounded great…. maybe better than the Iron & Wine version. Shocking.
Confession: I don’t watch the entirety of the videos. I usually skip around. I know I’m an awful Lee fan. He sounds great, but he’s just sitting there… I can watch the whole thing later. That being said… I skipped to the most perfect part. 2 minutes and 15 seconds. It was like fate.
“Fast Car”?!?! That’s the most exciting thing he’s done in months. Thank you for that. He just reeled me in again, when I was dosing. I hope everyone appreciated that, because that’s a real surprise. He’s such a genius for doing that, and not just because it’s one of my most favorite pop songs, but because it was so unexpected. It almost makes up for the lack of Biebs. ALMOST.
“Brooooooooklyn Bridge” was next in my jumbled up set list and still no guitar part for it…. but that’s okay. We fake fought about that for months, why change that now?? He just loves annoying me and giving me anxiety.
I kinda dream (and by kinda dream, I mean I just made this up on the spot right now) that’d he’d stand up, kick the stool away and just start strumming on the guitar. That would be pretty epic right??
Wait…. was he strumming a little bit??? I think he was just pretending in order to annoy me.
“Live It Up” sounds like a different song. And the crowd sings along.. presh. This may be my favorite version of this song he’s done. He changed up the melody a little bit. I still hate the bridge though… those lyrics make no sense.
“A Song About Love”…. everyone loves this song with such a passion. It depresses me a little bit today. I’m not going to re-watch this.
He did great. He sounded awesome and I’m sure the crowd in his hometown looooooved him. I’m glad he got to go home and see his family and eat this giant ass cookie!
DeWyzefan6…. you are obviously the nicest person on this planet. No one has ever given me a birthday cake like that, let alone a person I’ve never met. You are a gem.
And again, I hope everyone at least appreciated that awesome ass outfit.
Oh that’s not true…. he’s just sleeping.
Oh, and where the hell was the Abe Lincoln impersonator??
So, that was a little more fun than my “recap” earlier, right??
WHOA!! What in the world was Oprah doing last night?? Saving the world?? What was more important than her going to the red carpet event that was the Lee D. concert at Viper Alley, which I’m pretty sure is a high-class strip club??? (Is that the conclusion?? Because that’s what I decided and until I see proof of anything else…. I’m gonna go with that.)
He’s so mad. I have evidence of his rage.
Thankfully Red Beanie Blog has come to the rescue and has a million videos posted, because to be honest… I don’t feel like spending my morning trying to find them. And I’m probably not going to discuss all of them because it seems like he sang a lot, and you can only say awesome so many ways.<—- Look at me being nice.
Let’s talk about his ensemble… and yes people… that’s what you call an ensemble. Carrie Bradshaw would date him with this outfit. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed if he had this outfit on… but he’d have to have this on at all times.
That jacket is superb… SUPERB! I’m pretty sure he fashioned it himself a la Project Runway whilst on the plane to Chicago. He’s so innovative.
LOOK AT THAT!! Piping… I haven’t seen a blazer with piping on it since my 1st grade school picture. So legit…. such a fashionista. Someone else dressed him… and that person was clearly a gay man who time traveled from the 1990′s. That’s a compliment by the way… this is my favorite outfit EVER.
But then as I scroll down the bod…. I knew something had to be wrong. Did you trip, fall and rip your jeans brother??
He must have tripped over a stripper heel and ripped his jeans. We all still agree this was another strip club right?? I can’t get off that idea. Or did that joke make him seem like a sleazy guy?? It doesn’t matter.
“Beautiful Like You”… I stepped on Twitter for a second last night and heard rumblings this was the new single. UGH! Whatever Lee D….. don’t come crying to me when Dancing Baby runs away from home because you decide to sing slow songs all the time!!
(That’s a pissed baby)
Anyway, I can deal with this song…. good melody and there is repetition in it. I love love love repetition. (Wow. Just cracked myself up). Plus, he won’t have to move around a lot when he performs this, which we know he loves… perfect!
That was just beautiful. I don’t want him to stop stop stop singing it. And I have no idea what he’s saying at the end (work on the diction) but I’ll just pretend he’s complaining about the lack of Oprah.
“Stay”… not “Stay Here”… shit.
I think he spilled bleach on his jeans. You’re clothes are not so well-kept… but the hair is banging.
Will he just freaking perform “Stay Here” and stand up for 3 minutes… that’s all I ask. Anyway… good performance. This is the song that scares me when he screams… I forgot about that. He shouts. And he’s so demanding and it makes me want to not stay anywhere. Annnnd Linc the Sink you are just kiiiiiiillling it on the ivories.
Do people go up to Linc the Sink afterward and say “dude… you tickle those ivories like a mofo??” because you should. I may have to get figurative balls to do that.
Okay…. I have to do this in segments because I just can’t sit here and watch Lee D. for 45 minutes straight. I know what I just said is blashpemous… I’m sorry. Please do not hate me. I have to do it in pieces to be funny.
I’ll be back!
