The healing doesn't stop the feeling.

GEEZ

WOW y’all, I have another embarrassing “Things I Never Noticed in Direct from Brooklyn Videos” confession, but IT’S ACTUALLY A JOHN-RELATED ONE. I know, I can’t believe it either.

So you know THIS PART of Birdhouse?

PRETTY GOOD PART, RIGHT? I ENJOY THAT PART JUST A BIT. (Y’know, as opposed to EVERY SINGLE OTHER PART of Birdhouse.)

But when I was watching it just now, I realized that…I had no idea if he was still lip-syncing there or if he was too busy jumpin’ around. So I watched for it this time and yes he is and I was like “Hmm, good to know.” I’d really had no idea before that.

So I know right, you’d think I’d have every single aspect of every single thing John does in these videos memorized, wouldn’t you? But oh my GOD at this part I can’t even look at his face normally because I AM TOO BUSY STARING AT THOSE GODDAMN BONY LITTLE LEGS OF HIS IN THOSE GODDAMN PAINTED-ON BLACK JEANS. It’s not my faaaaaaaaaaaaault.

Last night’s dream

Will Ferrell was hosting SNL and he started talking about Birdhouse, I think as a combination of it working so well as a “hey I forgot about that song but now I remember it and it’s so catchy and it’s gonna be stuck in my head” song and the fact that I’ve been repeating it for a day and a half.

Then he said something about a harbor full of boats and all the boats had to be sending up a Birdhouse signal or it would stop existing.

Then I had my eyes closed but people started cheering and I figured that meant The Johns had come out, so I opened my eyes, but I opened them for real and I woke up, so I didn’t get to see what The Johns would’ve done in an SNL sketch. Sad sad.

Also, why does John Linnell have to incorporate MASS DEATH into even A REALLY HAPPY SONG ABOUT A FUCKING NIGHTLIGHT? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THAT MAN?

Awwwwww

So I was just thinking about the second verse of Birdhouse because I was discussing with Apollo how everyone expects me to want to be a teacher because I have an English major but I would be like THE WORST TEACHER EVER because I “don’t suffer fools gladly,” as one of my teachers put it, so when people ask me about it I always say, “Though I respect that a lot, I’d be fired if that were my job.”

So then I was really thinking about the lyrics and I’d never thought about it before but I was actually picturing a lil bird nightlight trying to be a lighthouse and it was ADORABLE AS FUCK other than um yeh that whole KILLING EVERYBODY part.

So I don’t know if y’all are aware but it has been scientifically proven that this part of Birdhouse is the hottest thing ever captured on film in the history of time

Though really it would be IMPOSSIBLE TO HANDLE if that video were any sexier

The fact that in the Birdhouse video the William-Allen-White-eyes cult member protestor weirdo people are wearing Converse but John Linnell isn’t fills me with so much sadness like you don’t even know

I wonder what happened to those people.  Do they exist somewhere in the fandom (imagine the fancred!), or was it just another “extra” job?

Somewhere (can’t remember where at the moment) The Johns reveal that one of them ended up being in Hudson Shad, the guys who sing “O, Do Not Forsake Me.” Other than that I have no idea!

I’m your only friend

I’m your only friend

It also cracks me up how people act like say I’m the only bee in your bonnet is OMG SOME KIND OF SUPER-ROMANTIC LINE. To have a bee in one’s bonnet is an actual idiomatic expression you fucks, and you know what it means? HAVING AN IDEA INSIDE YOUR HEAD AND YOU CAN’T FUCKING GET IT OUT AND IT’S DRIVING YOU CRAZY. YES, very sweet. I’m pretty sure that it is possible to love someone in that way, but I’m also pretty sure that IT WOULDN’T BE TOO MUCH FUN. And I mean, even if you don’t actually know what the expression means, just think about the sound of the phrase—does having A FUCKING BEE FLYING AROUND UNDER YOUR BONNET sound like a fun thing?
