I’m shedding tears of joy. Interview Jamboree happened. (This is the part where you pretend I linked to the 1,986 times I mentioned Interview Jamboree. )
Now, true… I wasn’t there, there was no Pictionary being played, and I’m pretty sure there was no queso con queso being passed around by and Abe Lincoln impersonator… BUT IT HAPPENED!!!
That is an actual Abe Lincoln made out of actual cheese. If I don’t receive this for my birthday.. it’s all over between us.
Anyway, my amigita (homegirl) and that pup I just want to squeeze because it’s so gosh darn cute, chatted with Lee DeWeezy and had a friendly conversation. I don’t even want to call this an interview, because I imagine it as two friends, shooting the shit. That’s how it happened. And he probably wore the Hat Of All Freakin’ Hats. That’s just how it went down.
Now, you need to all go HERE and read it. This is like an actual interview and I’m not going to ruin it with my ridiculous comments. Well, a few:
GATOR GIRL!! I’m surprised she didn’t ask if he could be any American Horror Story character, who would he be?? (hahah ), but good question! I thought he might say a J Biebs song, but he’s obviously saving that for me.
PS I’d be this guy from AHS, in case anyone cared.
That comment was obviously from an actual question that was great… but I’m glad he said this. I feel a connection to him.
This picture seemed to fit the weird vibe I just put into this post by saying I feel a connection with Lee D because I took a comment way out of context. Just go with it.
LINC THE SINK IS BACK!!
AGHHH!! The bromance lives on!! It better be minus 20 degrees in Chicago because I need Linc The Sink to rock the hat since he’s the only one that does.
What a vision. What a gem! One day Lee Bear… one day.
Go HERE to check out the rest of the awesome sauce interview and make sure to leave comments and tell Red Beanie that she’s a rockstar!
I’m minding my own business at work yesterday (actually minding my own business and ignoring my tables because what’s going on outside on 2nd Ave is more important than if you need a glass of wine) and my phone starts going berserk.
I automatically think I’m super cool and people just need to get in touch with me via text message, but in reality it’s just Lee D seriously clearing things up in about 1040 characters.
(I screen capped it in a really shitty way, so just figure out how to read it. Read it from bottom to top. I think??)
I can’t tell if Lee wants to drink gasoline because of “What Once Was”, have his old record label “mysteriously” disappear, or he’s okay with it and just doesn’t give a crap.
People were throwing around the word “fraud” (they should probably get a dictionary and look up the definition to that word) and being super dramatic about it, but I think Lee D I just trying to run for President on this one.
He actually confused me more with his Twitter rant, so who has any idea how he feels about it??
If you want to buy it you can go HERE.
And if you don’t want to buy it than you can read some classical literature on your Kindle.
PS This was a really awkward post. It was funnier when I mapped it out in my head last night. I should learn to write things down… or tweet 1040 characters right away.
*edit* I’m also the only person who was calling it “what was once” instead of “what once was”… confusing title
Am I the only person that had no idea about this?? Probably.
Thank you Twitter for being on top of your shit.
Wuli Records is releasing a collection of new/old/you guys probably know every word songs on an album called What Once Was,which not gonna lie, depresses me a little bit. “What once was” was something I say about my awesome dead dog.
Anyway… I’m obviously OBSESSED with the album artwork. I’m gonna get it just for the cover.
Love the cartoon Lee Bear except he looks like an ostrich and not a bear, but that’s okay.
I also love the combo of the Amish beard (hey Amish heeeey!) and he skinny/high water jeans he has on. It’s a little Nightmare Before Christmas-ish but who doesn’t love a depressed skeleton names Jack who’s in love?? No one.
You can hear snippets of this HERE and it’s filled with ollllllllld school Lee. Like, there’s some sort of Spanish diddy on this, I think I heard a choir at one point, and he’s still in his Amish phase I believe, because it lacks electricity.
This album comes out February 14th so if your boyfriends/husbands/girlfriends don’t get you this for Valentine’s day… you should probably break up with them.
*EDIT* As I’m sitting here, taking the day off because I’m illin’ (not the cool kind) I received a Lee D tweet with his incoherent thoughts on this “new album”:
And yes… Lee D’s edition is the only edition. But I have a hunch you crazy kids, do not mind.
That is a sample of the new old-ish single from Lee Bear that surprisingly has no actual snapping in the song, just heavy piano, a drum track and smooth vocalizing.
You can go to iTunes to purchase that single and I highly recommend that you do. Not only will you get to hear the song in its entirety…. but you can also see the snazzy single cover art.
If you are blind (and if you are, I’m not sure how you’re reading this but have a friend tell you, I guess??) then let me tell you that the cover art is The Nightmare Before Christmas crew snapping along to this song. True story.
GO GET THE SONG! QUICK!!
Posted November 24, 2011on:
WHAT WHAT WHAT?!?! A new old Lee Bear song?? Tis the holiday season.
Lee D was totally Amish when he wrote/recorded this song… I can just tell. I can tell because I feel like he recorded this sans electricity, which is totally possible so go with it.
I really appreciate the animation of fingers in mid snap at the top of the video. It helps deaf people understand the song.
And as for the place where all the flowers and children play??? I imagine it looks a lot like this…
“Snaps” will be available for purchase on December 13th.
Anybody need a kidney??
Oh ORGAN! Not OrganS! My bad.
Lee D apparently has an organ, the instrument not the collection of tissue joined to perform a function (did not even need to google that definition. BAM!), and you can tickle the ivories on that organ if you win it!
That’s Lee’s organ and I didn’t realize he played Phantom Of The Opera by himself (that’s the only reason I see for someone owning an organ), but now you can play it by yourself as well.
So, here’s the dilly: (I’m actually just going to show a picture to you because it’s easier than me explaining it)
So, buy something from one of those 3 easy to do options and email your receipt to the email address mentioned above and BOO YAH! You’re entered to win Lee’s organ. And now I kind of want the organ in my bedroom.
You can go HERE to get more information and all the proper links. I think you should do it and please let me know who wins this organ, because I’ll be jealous. I’m gonna need a video of you playing “Earth Stood Still” on the organ.
And on a completely unrelated but attempt to relate note, that organ may be more valuable because if Lee D keeps taking pictures whilst driving he’s gonna crash.
When people (Santa or not) drive cars with plastic wood on the side of them, it makes me want to break things over their heads. Like say… an organ???
So, seriously go HERE and try to win that organ.
PS Thanks to all the Lee Bear fans (DeWyzefan6 especially) for all the info
(That’s supposed to be a play on “Never There” but it sounded funnier in my head. Sorry)
Wuli Records released “Never There”, an oldie but goodie from Lee Bear, and I can only assume it’s from his Amish days, and this is how he got kicked out of the Amish community.
HOLY ELECTRIC PIANO HORSE & BUGGY!!!
Anyway, “Never There” is now released and you can go to Itunes (HERE) to purchase it for only 99 cents! THAT’S A DEAL!
And for even more of a deal, if you send your iTunes receipt from your purchase on October 4th (today) to firstname.lastname@example.org you get a free unreleased song from Lee, Lee Bear will come to your house in the Hat Of All Freakin’ Hats and hang the artwork for “Never There” on your bedroom wall.*
I think Lee painted that during his Amish days… in the dark.
But for realsies… go to Itunes and buy “Never There” like a human being who cares about the fate of the free world. I’ll call the government on you if you don’t.
P.S. * Okay… I don’t think he’ll wear the Hat Of All Freakin’ Hats because we know how he is. His wedding… definitely his wedding is when that hat will be worn.
EDIT!! So, Lee D sounds totally amped and psyched about the release of “Never There”. Note to self: I need to invent sarcastic font.
If I just send a boom box hollowed out and filled with muffins to Chicago with the words “Attention Wuli Records” on it, they’ll get it right??
I want to do this because they just made Lee D’s “Princess” a summer jam. Holy drum track Batman! I can now listen to Lee D in front of boys and where my “ya mon Jamaican” wig and still have friends. In fact, look for me tonight. I’ll be the girl, in the dred lock wig, air drumming all whilst dancing.
Click HERE to listen to the dope beat remix version of “Princess”.
I know I just offended the whole Jamaican culture by equating them to nothing but rum drinkers when I fully know and understand that they also love tequila.
I hate blaming the universe and uterus-es (is there a proper plural for the word ‘uterus’?) for releasing babies so late in life, but Lee D should have been making music during the golden age of Dawson’s Creek.
Wuli Records released a teaser of the new/old Lee D song “Fallen” (it will be available July 5th I think, so happy belated birthday America! Don’t say Lee D never gave you anything! Now, put his face on Mount Rushmore, next to Abe of course) and I immediately envision Joey Potter canoeing across the creek, Dawson Leery being angsty and probably questioning his sexuality and Pacey Witter being my dream boyfriend.
The WB would probably place this song in a montage with Grams dying and Jen and Jack comforting each other. I think there should be a Dawson’s Creek movie just so they could fit this song in. Just saying. I’ll write it if I have to and I’m sure the legion of Lee fans will help me get it made.
And by the way, saying Lee D needs to be on a Dawson’s Creek soundtrack is a major compliment from me because I’m a maaaaasive Creek fan. Like, not even joking around.
Anyway, good song right? For those of you who miss the “old Lee” there ya go!! In all your acoustic glory!
Excuse the shouting, but I’m just so excited!!!
Remember that secret project that I promised to give up my first-born and/or my Dawson Creek DVDs to find out about??? Well Jennifer Harding is letting the secret out and now I think I can keep my first child… I have to check the contract I drafted. I mean she can still have the kid if we can negotiate on the DVDs.
Anyway… if you click the picture below you will be directed to the awesome website that Jenn worked so hard on and you’ll be able to purchase the special project! A SHIRT!! (or you can go to artandmusicforhope.com)
But it’s a super cool shirt! Check it out!
Guys… this shirt has that “Sweet Sweet” painting on it!! And plus, you can get it in different colors and it looks like a baseball shirt so the men in your life will not make fun of you, in fact get one for the man in your life.
I may get Big D a shirt. (The purple one of course)
AND, not only will you be able to buy the awesome shirt, you’ll get a free download of “Sweet Sweet” courtesy of Wuli Records, you will be a walking ad for Lee D’s pre idol music, AND you will be donating to Feeding America which is pretty dope.
Lee’s totally gonna get one in every color!
I’m gonna need a “Earth Stood Still” hoodie next Jenn…. thanks!
