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.)
You can seriously get all the reaction pictures you would ever need just from John Linnell’s faces in the part of the Flood promo where they’re saying the titles of all the songs
Y’know, when John was younger he had various accordions that were bigger than the Manccordion and yeh they’re extremely sexy and all but I never FLIP OUT looking at videos/pictures with them cos I DIDN’T NEED HIM TO BE PROVING HIS STRENGTH when he was, like, my age.
But GOD then of course he only played the Manccordion for a YEAR and then he said the fucking thing at the Pink show about how there’s so much accordion on that album cos he “had better upper-body strength then” and now he’s “in a sad old-man competition” with his younger self and I cried and oh my god FUCK HIM.
(Yeh I get really turned on by the concept of him aging except for the, like, actual things that happen when you age, cos I am entirely reasonable.)
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.
