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.
I just watched the Puppet Head video and I had another “Wait that’s what Flans is doing in that part???” moment, which has happened before, and now I’m all embarrassed. OTHER THINGS HAPPENING IN THE SHOTS USUALLY ARE JUST A BIT DISTRACTING. I have this plan to sometime watch all the videos and making myself only watch Flans cos I’m sure there’s tons of other stuff I’m missing, I really need to do that at some point…
Oh god AND just talking about how DLS and Crane have John being UNBEARABLY HOT in the videos but are also soooooooooo sad is without even getting into the fact that yeh lyrically those songs are so sad but musically they’re SO HAPPY, BECAUSE THE FIRST THING WASN’T CONFUSING ENOUGH. GODDAMN YOU JOHN LINNELL YOU’RE FUCKING WITH MY HEAD. STOP IT. No don’t actually stop it because those are two of the absolute most perfect songs in the history of time AND I love seeing how sexy you are in the videos but still GODDAMN.
I MEAN SERIOUSLY HE IS SHOWING OFF HIS FUCKING CROTCH IN A SONG WITH THE LINE “EVERYBODY DIES FRUSTRATED AND SAD AND THAT IS BEAUTIFUL” IN IT TALK ABOUT MIXED FUCKING SIGNALS JOHN LINNELL JESUS CHRIST
