Oh Katy Perry, All is forgiven.

It's no secret that I'm not a fan of Katy Perry. I find that "I Kissed a Girl" song lame and totally overplayed. I swear in the course of two hours at the bar one night, they had played the song 4 times. But all is forgiven. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to run out and buy this album or start listing to that dreadful song but I'm totally in love with this video. Let me break it down for you.
First off, what is not to love about a video that opens with a shot of a fantastic pair of shoes? Second, who doesn't love a great WWII inspired plot line in a music video? Lastly, it's featuring the incredibly hot Matt Dallas. Please to enjoy...

Comparisons are easily turned
Once you've had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

You said move on
Where do I go
I guess second best
Is all I will know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes

You're like an Indian summer
In the middle of winter
Like a hard candy
With a surprise center
How do I get better
Once I've had the best
You said there's
Tons of fish in the water
So the waters I will test

He kissed my lips
I taste your mouth
He pulled me in
I was disgusted with myself

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Find More lyrics at
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into...

You're the best
And yes I do regret
How I could let myself
Let you go
Now the lesson's learned
I touched it I was burned
Oh I think you should know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Oh won't you walk through
And bust in the door
And take me away
Oh no more mistakes
Cause in your eyes I'd like to stay...

I have no words for this song. Adele is AMAZING! I can't help but think of Heber when I hear this song. Please to enjoy...

I’ve been walking in the same way as I did
Missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel, strutting my feet
“Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I can call?”
“No and thank you, please Madam. I ain’t lost, just wandering”

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I’ve met
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders of my world

I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque
I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades
I like it in the city when two worlds collide
You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides

Shows that we ain’t gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united
Shows that we ain’t gonna take it
Shows that we ain’t gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I’ve met

Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world

Early proof of skepticism

I find this picture comical for several reasons.
But I do love the look on my face. I'm sure it was followed by an eye roll.
Uh huh, sure, whatever you say "santa".

Eternal Flame

This is seriously the best show on television. I had such mixed emotions watching this last night. I was delighted, while at the same time being absolutely gutted at the thought that this show is getting canceled. It kills me... please to enjoy!

Thanks to Erin who gave me this idea.
I went her 10 better and included 35. I couldn't not include 25 thru 35.
These are the 35 most played songs on my iTunes. Please to enjoy.

Too Cute

This is one of my favorite songs... even though it is being played to death on the radio. The artwork that goes with it is just too cute for words. Please to enjoy...


Seriously stop whatever you are doing right now!
Watch this video!
There is only one word to describe this... Wrenching.
I love K.D. Langs version, don't get me wrong. Vocally, in my opinion hers is unparalleled. But I haven't been moved emotionally by this song since I heard Jeff Buckley's version. This is how music is supposed to be. Raw, in your face, not always pretty. This truly is a cold and broken Hallelujah. Please to enjoy...

P.S. Thanks a million to my dear friend Matt who reads this blog and told me about Brandi singing this song.

An Open Letter to the Red States

Thanks to Bill in Exile for this.



Dear Red States,

If you manage to steal this election too we've decided we're leaving.

We intend to form our own country, and we're taking all the Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all of the slave states.

We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

We get the Statue of Liberty.

You get Dollywood.

We get Intel and Microsoft.

You get Papa John's Pizza.

We get Harvard.

You get Ole' Miss.

We get 85% of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.

You get Alabama.

We get two-thirds of the tax revenue; you get to make the red states pay their fair share for the first time ever.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families.

You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once.

If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home.

We do wish you success in Iraq , and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines, 90% of all cheese, 90% of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy League and Seven Sister colleges plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92% of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you very much.

Additionally, 38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

Finally, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico

Peace out,

Blue States

The Only Fault

New Favorite Song... Please to enjoy.

If I could have one wish
If I could have some say
I’d keep you far from home
I’d roll back both my sleeves
Dig under your skin
And fix your shattered bones

Hold on,
This may hurt you when I tell you of the truth,
We don’t get two lives to live
It’s true,
The only fault I’ve found in you
Is not being free to take what I would give

If I could bend your pain
Into something good
Make you a prouder man
If I could rough you up
And save you with good luck
And show you hope again

Hold on,
Weren’t meant to suffer so very long
Leaving love that’s gone has never been a sin
Hang Tight,
The only fault you have tonight
Is shutting down so cold till I break in.

Oh sad young man,
I think I need you.
For reasons I don’t know
I pledge myself to Winter season
So it’s perfectly on course
But in the end it has to snow.

If I could make you stay
Convince you you’d be lost
If we were torn apart
If it remained unclear
Between the two of us
Which one would be the one
To break the others heart

Hold on,
This will floor me differently
Than any drug that’s washed me into sleep
It’s true
The only fault I’ll take from you
Is how to run from what you wish to keep

More Music

Thanks to Stephanie and Nate for this song.

by Joshua Radin
ft. Schuyler Fisk

been up all night staring at you
wondering what's on your mind
i've been this way with so many before
but this feels like the first time
you want the sunrise to go back to bed
i want to make you laugh

mess up my bed with me
kick off the covers i'm waiting
every word you say i think
i should write down
don't want to forget come daylight

happy to lay here
just happy to be here
i'm happy to know you
play me a song
your newest one
please leave your taste on my tongue
paperweight on my back
cover me like a blanket

mess up my bed with me
kick off the covers i'm waiting
every word you say i think
i should write down
don't want to forget come daylight

and no need to worry
that's wastin time
and no need to wonder
what's been on my mind
it's you
it's you
it's you

every word you say i think
i should write down
don't want to forget come daylight
and i give up
i let you win
you win cause i'm not counting

you made it back
to sleep again
wonder what you're dreaming

File under "Duh" Part 2

So I logged into the Claymates Message Board today. To see what the jean wearing, Sarah Palin voting, soccer moms had to say about Clay's revelation.
While about 98% of the posts are supportive and congratulatory there are about 2% that are shocked to their core. I laughed so hard I nearly cried reading them this morning.
Please to enjoy the following:

"please tell me I'm not the only one who is shocked beyond belief! I feel numb I'm so upset. This can't be real!! How can you guys say this won't change anything? This changes EVERYTHING. I don't even know what to think right now."

"I wish him well and hope he gets some peace of mind now BUT I feel he lied to everyone-especially us fans. He should have just said so years ago. I feel like we were "used". I still love to hear him sing but I also feel he has now become like a Michael Jackson and it's a bit too weird! He isn't just the plain ordinary person with the values he first stood for.-but it's just my opinion."

Really? Michael Jackson? It's not like Clay bleached himself and started molesting children.

"I guess, I always thought, this day may come. And, I am not realyl surprised. Not that I ever realyl thought he was, but the admission, is just not a shock to me. And, I love him still, and support him. To me.. the confession, really doesn't fit. Despite all the rumors, and the accusation, and such.. I just never saw it in him, and with the confession, I still don't. But.. I accept Clay for whoever he is. Cause, I think he is an amazing man, and really his sexuality, still is none of my business. This doens't change his voice, or the humanitarian he is. That's who I fell in love with,. and that's who I still love.

I wish Clay all the prayers and love I can send.

And, that cover. He looks gorgeous. And, Parker is such a cute baby."

That is some hag devotion my friends.

"Okay, i'm going to come right off and say that when I saw it, I did cry. and I probably will if and when it is confirmed. Which will be tomorrow morning hopefully. I'll probably be late for my first class, because i'll be surfing the internet in the library. I knew in my heart for awhile that he was-...but my head was having nothing to do with it. I knew it might come eventually, but again my brain denyed it. I'm sure its a shock to all of us, weather we believe it or not. And for all those people who think he lied to all of us, I say whatever."

I was the same way. I had to reschedule my surgery appointment and everything.

"I don't understand how anyone can say that this changes nothing. It's as simple as this for me: Clay is NOT the person I thought he was. I can't look at him the same way again and this is killing me. I want SO bad to feel the same about him but right now I just can't. And the funny thing is I have NO problem with gay people. But it's just that he lied about it and I can't forgive him. "

LIAR! Why is it that homophobic assholes always include that "I have no problem with gay people" phrase in their I hate gays mantra? It's that he lied. Seriously? Why don't you go vote for John McCain you right wing fascist idiot!

"The Diane Sawyer interview bothered me too. I just pushed it out of my mind. His having Parker with Jaymes pretty much confirmed it for me, so I have slowly been backing away. Now this. I have been a fan from the very beginning and will always admire his voice and quirky personality, but I just can't do this anymore. And I will very much miss, probably as much as Clay, the wonderful and clever chats with those members of this board, and I really mean that. Stupid tears are gunking up my contact lenses"

I can no longer do what? Listen to his music? I sure hope she doesn't have any Queen or Elton John or n*sync or Janice Kapp Perry.

Look, I'm sorry that your boyfriends gay. You need to move on.

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
