I hope everyone had a fabulous Father's Day weekend! Although my mother re-married when I was 5, it's always been one of those bitter-sweet days for me... along with my birthday... and Valentine's Day... and really, I could go on.
I did a special Father's Day guest post over at Scary Mommy. Have you heard of her? She's kind of a big deal ;) The feedback thus far is that people have really enjoyed seeing my "snugly side". Ah-hem. Don't get too used to it! She's like a rare purple unicorn - and she only comes out on special occasions. Don't bother trying to photograph her for proof of her existence - she can smell a camera from a mile away.
And to counter-balance all my gooey sentimentality... whore, bitch, skank.
Whoa. That felt better.
I have posted an older video by Marianas Trench back in February that is a lot more up-beat. Today's song has a completely different feel and affect on me. Although I do think the video is fantastically well done to the point where it's really more like a short film, it's the actual song that really gets to me. Let's completely skate over the fact that Josh Ramsay
looks a lot like Jim is uniquely mesmerizing... however, he could do with a little hair cut and less eye makeup in the 'modern' portion of this video. His hair looks like the Beiber-hairstyle fucked an angry blue porcupine on crack and Josh's hairstyle was the result of that transgression. What's that saying? Two wrongs don't made a right... indeed.
Anyhow, I'm wavering. Back to my point - the song! His lyrics are simple, but so honest and genuine. The strangest part is that I usually despise "cheesy duets" but, shit, it's caught me hook line and sinker.
I wrote this on The Twitter last week, to which I was referring to this song.
Am I going to tell you approximately how many times I've watched/listened to this song?
Jesus Christ, man, there's just SOME things you don't talk about in public!*
And so I put forth this question:
What song can reduce you to a puddle of emotional snot?
Me? There are so, so very many! But currently, it's this one.
