Ok so…I’d never seen the video for this song before I looked it up to post here. I’ll admit, it’s cute. But aside from the sweet visual representation and the catchy beat, I have to give a big, fat “WTF.” Yes that’s right. I have issues with this song that everyone else seems to adore. Please allow me to plead my case as you involuntarily bounce to the deceptively happy ditty above.
First of all, the situation here is pretty clear: this guy is out drinking while his lady sits at home. My Army guy would beg to differ, but IMO…not cool. If he’s out drinking, I want to be right by his side taking fireball shots too. And if it’s a guys’ night, you’d better believe that I’m finding some girls to make a night of it, myself. Screw sitting my ass at home alone!
Don’t get me wrong, I do know women who have no interest in going out to the bar with their guy, and savor the evenings they get to spend catching up on their reading and correspondence (i.e. scrolling Facebook and binge watching House Hunters on Netflix in peace), working on personal development (i.e. a long warm bath with a bottle of wine), or just some quiet contemplation (i.e. ONLINE SHOPPING). However, I’m sure that even the most independent woman would be somewhat perturbed to find out that her guy was responding to THOTs in the bar with the following…
It’s been a long night here, and a long night there
And these long long legs are damn near everywhere
You look good, I will not lie […]
Call me cheesy, but this is one of my all-time favorite songs. Yes I know I'm a sheep, but YOU know you sing along too when it comes on the radio :P
Anyway, if you weren't aware, Journey has a new(ish) lead singer. His name is Arnel Pineda. He grew up as a homeless street kid in Manila. The band actually found him via YouTube, and the story of how it all happened is told in one of the best documentaries I've seen in a while. If you've ever tapped your foot or hairbrush-microphone-in-the-mirror'd to a Journey song, then US law requires you to watch Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey (okay, so that's not true, but you should still watch it).
Rock on \m/

I ordered something really cool today. I’m so very excited about this. For some crazy reason, I expect everyone else to be as squee-y over it as I am, and hence a giveaway is born. Wanna know what you can win? Wait for it. Waaaiiit for iiiiiiiiit…
Super-dee-duper novella-tastic The Last Three Words bookmarks!
These bookmarks were designed by yours truly, featuring the amazing cover art for my upcoming Evernight Teen novella release. Professionally printed on good cardstock and covered with a gloss coating, these babies should hold up to the most vigorous of bookmarking duties, and look damned fabulous doing it. Accented with a single white feather on an attached satin-like cord, you’ll never lose your place in a book again…if you can bring yourself to remove this beauty from the protective display shelf you’ll certainly be compelled to keep it on.
Okay, so they’re just bookmarks. But still, they’re gonna be super cool!
