I’m trying to teach myself to sew and I just spent an hour and a half trying to load thread onto the bobbin and I couldn’t fucking get it to work and I think the main thing keeping me from going out of my mind with frustration right now is I was repeating “Birdhouse in Your Soul” the whole time and it is IMPOSSIBLE to be in a bad mood while you’re repeating “Birdhouse in Your Soul” so THANKS JOHNS.
10) Favorite TMBG video
Oh this one is easy. BIRDHOUSE BIRDHOUSE BIRDHOUSE. Ok ok I’ll admit that, while I certainly appreciate the elements of the videos as works of art, my main reasoning for which videos I like best is, “EXACTLY HOW HOT IS JOHN IN THIS VIDEO?” And oh my goddddddddddddddddddddddddddd John in Birdhouse FUCK. That video is, like, the gold standard of John Linnell hotness. First of all his hair is doing the little FLIP thing which is MY FAVOURITE THING IN THE WHOLE WORLD, and then THOSE JEANS THAT ARE LIKE PAINTED ON, FUUUUUUUCK, and the black turtleneck. In most of my fantasies about him he’s wearing that exact outfit (well, with the modification of GLASSES too of course). The part where he’s adjusting the light basically makes me melt like absolutely nothing else. SERIOUSLY, CAN YOU ARGUE WITH THIS?
birdhouse in your soul
While I do wish people would occasionally do art based on other songs (seriously, it’s ALWAYS Birdhouse), this is a very cool take on it.
One of the things I love about TMBG is they truly have lyrics you can apply to anything you ever want to describe. There is seriously very little in my life that I could not find a TMBG line to PERFECTLY summarize if I tried hard enough. Just as an example, here are the ones I break out the most often:
WHY I’M NOT A FLANSGIRL: Too gregarious, too nice
MY FIRST RELATIONSHIP: Wish I’d gotten to know him before I fell in love
WHY I’M NOT A TEACHER EVEN THOUGH I HAVE AN ENGLISH DEGREE: Though I respect that a lot, I’d be fired if that were my job
