Happy Holidays

My friend Jonell sent this vid to me about two years ago. Back in ancient times, you could link a Youtube video without it being censored or copyrighted by some large corporation who might be losing ten cents if you watch it on my blog instead of downloading it for 99 cents onto your Ipod or Blackberry. Jesus, am I becoming a curmudgeon? I am, aren't I?

Anyway, this is the single reason I'll never hate JT. Yeah, I used the initials. Do you want to fight me? I'll poke you in the eyes.

Happy Holidays, my friends.

that motherfucker is funny as hell.

but I heard that his music makes you ugly and also smell like feet, but fourteen year old girls will still think you're pretty cool for an old guy.

He's all right as a person in my book---anyone who can make fun of themselves and laugh at their own expense is all right with me. But, yeah, you're not going to find me jamming out to old Backstreet Boys CD's (that was his group, or was it the other boy-band?).

Serve me up some Neil Young instead, please. Thank you.

His group was Nsync. You knew this. You were just trying to play it cool.

Actually for a pop star he aint bad. Not exactly breaking a lot of ground, but he works with good producers and knows a good hook when he hears one. That's more then I can say for most of what's popular these days.

When you have two kids and crawl around the house on all-fours pretending to be Thomas the Train while your son plays Sir Topinhat at the depot, you're no longer worried about "playing it cool." Genuine mistake on the boy-bands. I could never tell them apart.

I honestly can't say I'd know a JT song if I heard it, other than "Dick in a Box." But I've seen him in interviews, and he seems to pretty level-headed and funny. Besides, I read a review of one of his concerts in The Globe awhile back, and he plays his own instruments. Another bonus for a pop star.
