musings on country...

It's so disappointing when I'm obsessed with a new song and have visions of the guy singing it as...cute...masculine...perfect, basically. A tall, dark-haired, lanterned-jawed smoothie in a cowboy hat. But yesterday I googled the singer of one of my currently favorite songs, and it was a big fat letdown. It sort of changes the song for me (but not so much that I haven't already listened to it twice and it's only 7:36).

Yesterday I also found out that Dierks Bentley is married. What a day. Good thing his wife is damn cute and totally adorable, because her joyous smile took the wind out of my and C-note's angry sails. I wish them the best.

It's pathetic that something like that actually changes something for me, even if it is an infinitesimally small change. It's not like I ever actually thought that Dierks (or Josh Turner, or Brad Paisley...) and I had a chance. But apparently the part of me that was in fantasy land thought that it was a possibility? Otherwise I wouldn't have requested a moment of silence for the news.

It's time wasted if I get up early to get to work early but then just lounge around on my here goes.

Oh. BTW. I'm still obsessed with Enchanted and right now "That's How You Know" is filling my bedroom with its musical cheer. Here are some of my favorite lyrics...

Well does he leave a little note to tell you you are on his mind?
Send you yellow flowers when the sky is gray? Heyy!
He'll find a new way to show you, a little bit everyday
That's how you know, that's how you know!
He's your love...

Because he'll wear your favorite color
Just so he can match your eyes
Rent a private picnic
By the fires glow-oohh!

Oh crap, Kanye just came on. That reminds me of this video...Have you guys (you guys being TC, Cam, JC, C-note, E, occasionally Pat, Rob, i-66, someone in the Netherlands, and various family members who read my blog. I get the stats, people. And I know whose blog you go to after mine!) seen this? So neat. It really picks up toward the end and is super impressive.

Daft Punk Girls - Stronger

Okay. Time to go to work. For reals.

I feel kinda stalked ... in a good way.

And I'm going to visit JC's blog after this, because his won't come up on reader for me. Though I doubt he posted last night with an early morning flight today. But I could always hope?

P.S. I know what you mean. I used to LOVE (with borderline obsession) Keith Urban. Once he got married though, not so much. I almost always pick a different song if one of his is on.
I can't tell you how disappointed I was when Kanye sampled Daft Punk. I mean, I'm disappointed whenever he samples anything... or when he tries to rap... but that was too much for me.
Skipping over those lyrics brought me great pleasure.
TC: yeah, I was like that with Rascal Flatts. Now I think they just sound whiny.

i-66: I am audience that has been overlooked (/overlooked) Daft Punk. Time to wikipedia!

Pat: So glad I accommodate you.
