Why I Love...


Besides it being an awesome word it is also an awesome comedy CD by an awesome musical group...The Lonely Island. You may know The Lonely Island mostly through their collaborations with SNL
and the fact that Andy Samberg is a SNL cast member.

But we're not really talking about The Lonely Island here. We're talking about their recent musical debut Incredibad (which actually came out in February, but, whatever). The first great thing about Incredibad is the fact that it's actually funny. Crazy, I know. At first, I debated whether or not to add Incredibad to the holy sanctuary that is my iTunes library. So I did a little research. I knew 7 of the 19 songs on the CD from SNL Digital Shorts. To make this crucial decision I did what every other smart person would do. No...I didn't listen to all the songs that had been uploaded to YouTube.
I listened to the 30 second preview on the iTunes Store of "Who Said We're Wack." Because that 30 second clip made me laugh I decided right then & there that I wanted to own Incredibad. The rest of the CD also offers a plethora of satisfying laughs. This post would be too long if I went through every song so we'll just leave it at that.

The next great thing about Incredibad is the fact that the music is pretty catchy despite the fact that the lyrics are totally ridiculous. Like, if "I'm On a Boat" was a legit song, I think it would get pretty high on the hip-hop charts. And if "Jizz In My Pants" was more appropriate it would definitely be heard at your local E-laced rave. And I wouldn't mind being serenaded with "Dick in a Box." It's got a nice 90s R&B beat. (Listen to those horns in the beginning of the song and before the chorus! lol. They just make the song great.)

The only thing that disappoints me about Incredibad is the fact that "Iran So Far" isn't on there. :( But that couldn't really be helped.

Despite that, I have mad love for Incredibad and The Lonely Island. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

Hope you get the chance to enjoy a nice sip of Santana DVX while eating some yummy boiled goose.
And remember...YOU'RE A WINNER!

Why I Love...Bonus Round!

So, faithful reader, last month I neglected to tell you what I loved so I'm making up for it by giving you more of a "Why I Was Amused By..." post. Only thing is I didn't allow myself to watch this crap last month. Instead, I finally gave myself permission to watch it, like, 4 minutes ago. Anyway, here it is!
Why I Was Amused By...
...the Hoedown Throwdown

The Hoedown Throwdown is NOT the title of a business manual for inner-city pimps. It is actually the name of a fancy little dance number by Miley Cyrus & Co. for her new epic film masterpiece. Now, I want you to take a quick glimpse at that cute little dance. I'll give you a minute...
...did you watch it? Did you learn it? No! Of course you didn't! There are 5,000 steps! My understanding is that this is from one of those scenes in the movie were our cute and clever protagonist shows his/her audience a dance about 2 times and 10 seconds later everyone is on their feet doing each step perfectly. Normally I believe it. I mean, that "Beat It" dance was
simple. (Yes, I know that's a music video. Same difference.) But this dance? I feel like I might need to take a couple years of intense dance lessons before I can even begin to learn it. Not to mention that horrendous song. Is it still possible to learn the dance steps if you wear ear plugs and hum a different tune?

Anywayz, I just wanted to share that piece of gold. I hope you all are learning the Hoedown Throwdown before the movie comes out next month.
Seriously though Miley, you could've just slapped a bitch and called it the same thing. Way easier.
