I still remember the first time I saw this video—it came out during my fandom hiatus, so everyone had long since seen it by the time I did. And I was talking to a couple of friends of mine and I was like “JOHN IN A TUX HOT DAMN” and then I was like “wait why the fuck is there a bear” and then I was like “WAIT WHY THE FUCK IS THE BEAR FLANS.” But since Flans totally is a big cuddly teddybear and also “Violin” is entirely about randomness I suppose it isn’t completely nonsensical. (Also JOHN IN A TUX IS STILL A VERY GOOD THING, in case you were wondering.)
A friend of mine on Facebook just posted a picture of a “hot” guy and said “someone needs to send him around to give her a massage” and it actually made me LOL because obviously these little muscley, younger than me bimbos are not the real standard of male beauty. SKELETAL MIDDLE-AGED BESPECTACLED SPAZZY NERDS ARE WHERE IT’S AT, YO.
So I continue to be the only one who has a GRILLING FETISH now cos of John’s “Being a guy, I’m a good griller,” quote, right? Well, Y’ALL ARE MISSING OUT.
I was at this resale shop yesterday and I found these socks with STEAKS on them so obviously I had to buy them. And then the checkout girl was all “Oh, these are cute!” and I’m thinking “Um I think you mean SEXY AS FUCK.”
So for some reason I felt the need to explain to her that, yeh, I have this whole grilling thing now cos the guy I’m in love with said this thing in an interview, even though 1. I am a VEGETARIAN 2. I don’t even like manly guys and 3. he’s actually like the least manly guy ever, HE’S A HUGE FUCKING NERD ACTUALLY. And she was laughing at me even though this is entirely, ENTIRELY reasonable.
Then she asked me if I know him personally and I said that no he’s just in my favourite band, and I had my (TMBG, naturally) wallet out to pay and I have the picture from the back of the Don’t Let’s Start EP in there so I showed it to her and she was all “Oh, he’s hot though” so I had to admit that um well he doesn’t look exactly like that anymore cos he’s only 28 YEARS OLDER NOW, “BUT HE’S STILL REALLY HOT.” Fun conversations.
