Up most of the night with restless legs and arms. One of the side effects. :shock:

I don't know where the 'strange names' thread is, but we're currently dealing with a banker named Libby Thevarkunnell.

Just got back from Donner Lake. At the end of the street, there was a little bridge my son and his buddies jumped off. Here's a video of my son doing it.

When I got home from my trip, I found out from my daughter and ex that my daughter had won tickets to Outside Lands, a huge music festival at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco this weekend, featuring Gorillaz, Lorde, Tribe Called Quest, Metallica and the Who, among others. Apparently, my daughter went on air with the the radio DJs and was really witty and funny.

She must take after her mother.

j/k that sounds super cool for her and looks like a pretty good lineup, actually!

I offered to sing for my friends wedding a while ago. The wedding is on Saturday and yesterday she sent a message with the song she'd like me to sing with her friend accompanying.

It's so bad that it's making me wonder about our friendship.

Has anyone heard of lady antebellum??? Awful. I don't want to listen to it, how can I learn it?
My epitaph, please

Last kiss? One kiss? ...Some kiss?... And it mentions something about good night, I think.
I've listened to it on loop... Or tried to for the last hour but my brain keeps tuning it out on purpose.
Don't tell me they 've written a good song besides this? I don't believe it.

Do it, but add the gallileo section of Bohemian Rhapsody in there as a surprise.

I don't know any of their songs, I just wanted a clearer idea of what these cruel bastards were using to torture you with.

This one?




I made it through the first chorus. I've heard worse, but it really is so wrong for a wedding.

It's no 'More Than Words'

I've never knowingly heard a Lady Antebellum song. Can you sing it in the style of Bessie Smith?

I'd even settle for Dolly Parton. I'm sure the trick to not being sick on stage will be to get into character of some sort... I just don't which.

I don't know if it's the comfort of spotify and youtube and generally having music made to order, but I've completely forgotten that there exists such utter drivel in the world.

The link won't play here for some reason... Just a Kiss is the title. Don't subject yourself to it if you can help it.
I'm honestly not sure I've heard worse.
