We’ve got an interesting contrast this weekend between the music and the fun stuff. I’m listening to Ray Lamontagne, a wonderful acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter. The first song I heard by him was his version of Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy, and I was instantly hooked. But the heartbreak of his song “Shelter” really got to me, and so I present a live version of it, followed by “Hold you in my arms,” to you below.
And I think that, along with something deep and powerful like these songs are for me, you need something fun, happy, and amusing to balance it.
So, if you haven’t heard of it already, meet Justin, a.k.a. shitmydadsays on Twitter. I don’t like or use (anymore) twitter, but this is the funniest feed I’ve ever seen on the site.
Justin is a 29-year-old who lives with his 73-year-old dad. The feed, updated about once every day or two, consists solely of — you guessed it — shit his dad says. Only his dad is a hilarious treasure trove of wisdom. Some examples?
I hate paying bills… Son, don’t say “me too.” I didn’t say that looking to relate to you. I said it instead of “go away.”
That woman was sexy…Out of your league? Son. Let women figure out why they won’t screw you, don’t do it for them.
Nobody is that important. They eat, shit, and screw, just like you. Maybe not shit like you, you got those stomach problems.
Do these announcers ever shut the fuck up? Don’t ever say stuff just because you think you should. That’s the definition of an asshole.
I wouldn’t worry about money…No, it has a lot to do with happiness, I just meant YOU shouldn’t worry, cause you’d just piss it away.
Who in the fuck is tila tequila? Is she a stripper?…That’s her? Yeah, that’s a stripper, son, I don’t give a shit what you say.
Just… wow. I haven’t laughed out loud at the internet in a long time, and this one got me. Hope you’re having a great weekend, and let me know if you have something just as good to share!
