Free Fallin’

Hey Ben Rector

I don’t know who you are…

from what I can tell, you live in Nashville.

so, immediately, i like you.

but this makes me love you:

(those shorts are gross)

A few things…

let’s catch up:

Zooey Deschanel & Ben Gibbard are married.  Indie kids rejoice.

-hey Mackenzie Phillips, THIS is messed up.

Freddie Prinze, jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar are the proud parents of a little girl named Charlotte

Jessica Simpson‘s dog got snatched by a coyote in front of her.  Now her friends think she’s having a breakdown.  I don’t really blame her.

-Did anyone else see Adele on the VH1 Divas special?  I love her. I would like to offer her my services as her best friend.

Watch this and tell me you don’t love her:

Eh?

Anyone who knows me knows that I love many things in this world:

free stuff, fantasic music, Canadians, glitter…

3 out of 4 ain’t so bad, Greg.

300

that right there is Greg Sczebel – a fantastically talented Canadian musician who is giving away his car. Yeah, you heard me.  That guy is giving away the 2009 Nissan Cube he won with this video right here:

i have had the privilege of listening to his record (on repeat) – and it is just silly how good it is…

If you like Jason Mraz, James Morrison, Eric Hutchinson, Jamie Cullum, or anything good, you’ll be into it.

go HERE and listen…

then enter to win his car.

(p.s. hey Greg – if you bedazzled your album cover, you’d be the whole package)

He’s like the wind

Patrick Swayze passed away today at age 57.

Dirty Dancing on VHS babysat me through the late 80s. It is a big part of who I am. (it probably explains a lot)

R.I.P.

A few things… *VMA edition

Kanye West knew exactly what he was doing.  That guy didn’t perform and he didn’t win any awards, but he’s the only thing we’re talking about. That guy knows what he is doing.

Seriously, it’s the VMAs – who cares?  I would laugh my head off if Kanye took the microphone from me and acted all crazy. If he took the microphone away from me at the Oscars, we’d have to talk.  But the VMAs?  Really?

-I will never say a bad thing about Beyonce again.  She killed it last night. And, thanks to Kanye (who knows what he’s doing) – she got the chance to be classy and give Taylor Swift the spotlight.

-Why isn’t anyone talking about Pink?  That woman performed on a trapeze. A Trapeze. and still sounded great.

-The Michael Jackson tribute was touching.  But Janet was rough.  Maybe they should have held out for the Grammys.

Lady Gaga is a complete lunatic.  I used to think it was awesome.  but last night was a whole new level of freaky. the outfits, the fake blood – it was all too much.

p.s.

dear MTV – please don’t let Russel Brand host again.  he just screams at me.

same word, different meaning

Ellen DeGeneres is replacing Paula Abdul on American Idol.

I think I might prefer Ellen’s kind of funny.

I need choreography, stat.

Jordin Sparks new single is my jam.

(I’m pretty sure anyone in the general vacinity of me & my speakers at work is over it)

She just released a video…and while I love the song…the video is kind of boring…

you’re beautiful, Jordin.  But dang girl, give me a dance routine.

I think my video is better.

(now that I think about it, the people at work are not over that song at all)

Joy To the World

So, my friends. We’ve been chatting about Ten out of Tenn recently.

Well, there is one spectacular gal on tour who will be getting all of my attention today.

Her name is Joy Williams, and i love her dearly.

(if i could carry a tune, i would wish to sound like her)

WILLIAMS-ARTIST

that pretty lady had a double EP come out today. Songs From This & Songs From That

THIS_final THAT_final

Every single song is amazing, but my personal favorites are “Speaking A Dead Language,” “Golden Thread,

and “I Hate It When We Fight” (with David Mead).

Buy both EPs, and thank me later.

I could be slightly biased because I designed those album covers…but I wouldn’t lie to you.

(Okay, maybe I would.)

if you don’t believe me – listen to this:
