Video Tuesday — A Note to Men of the World

Dear Men of Earth,

You getting a little lonely and looking for a nice ladyfriend to pass the time with? Here’s how you do it. Set up a video camera, sing a sweet, tender cover of a ‘mats song. Post on YouTube. Then wait for the adoration to roll in. I promise you, it will totally work.

I’m a woman. I know these things. Plus, right now I totally have a crush on this dude.

I used to be nobody,

P.S. I am not talking about the reissues because mine won’t be here until tomorrow. So if y’all want to go on and talk and talk and talk about how fucking fabulous they are go right ahead. It’s not like it will make me cry or anything. Not that you care. You meanies.

    Today is the besy day ever.
    My class got canceled, so I picked up the reissues at the store, and then we’re going to Joey’s smokin BBQ for dinner.
    I only just opened Sorry Ma. Great booklet inside and cute note from someone’s mom (I’m guessing Tommy’s).

    This could actually work!
    I’m grabbing my guitar right now, and working up a sweet, romantic song that gets straight to the point and will have the ladies throwing their underpants at their computer monitors even before the song is over!

    Check YouTube out later tonight for the debut of my video for “Gary’s Got A Boner”.

    Thanks for the great idea, Queenie!

    Just use protection, that’s all I ask. I don’t want to be blamed for any little blasties running around.

  5. blasty 22.Apr.08 at 4:50 pm

    I don’t think anyone wants to take the blame for that.

    What does ze note say? “Tommy fell out of the apple tree?”…lol April 22nd is the best fucking day ever if you’re a Replacements fan.

    That cover is awesome

  8. Jodi 22.Apr.08 at 9:37 pm

    You kind of have a crush on him too, don’t you?

  9. mmr421 22.Apr.08 at 10:09 pm

    The note says that the little sister needs rest for school tomorrow, the noise is a bit much, she has a husband approaching, she might turn into a maniac, and tommy needs to take out the trash and go to the store.
    Unfortunately, my “indie” store didnt get any of the seven inchers.

    that dude looks like jay farrar with a beard plus 10 lbs. So that means he has elf blood in him.

  11. Jodi 23.Apr.08 at 7:26 am

    Are you making fun of the my new favorite thing? Do you want me to cut you?

  12. Jake 23.Apr.08 at 10:07 am

    If i were a women i would jump him….makes me want to learn it and seduce unsuspecting women…….yep….it’s settled…totally going too learn it….

    Looks like my video has already been removed from YouTube- they say it violated the terms of service for some reason.

    Oh well, back to the drawing board. I’ll have a new video up later this evening, except this time, I’ll be wearing pants.

  14. Jake 23.Apr.08 at 2:45 pm

    got stink and sorry ma…all i can afford right now…got them two for one. Good to have friends at cheapo. Does anyone from Minnesota know who the crush are?

  15. Jimdracula 23.Apr.08 at 3:41 pm

    My mom knows Tommy’s mom…lol

  16. Jodi 23.Apr.08 at 4:07 pm

    I’m from Minnesota and I thought I made it pretty clear that the crush is the dude in the video.

  17. Jake 23.Apr.08 at 8:22 pm

    Haha…I mean the band the crush. They are back together for a show at the triple rock friday for $6. It will be amazing!

  18. mmr421 23.Apr.08 at 9:20 pm

    woah cool how does your mom know tommy’s mom?

  19. scooterboy 24.Apr.08 at 7:58 am

    jake, i know the crush. i think. if memory serves, they are on the tc punk/hc comp, “no hold back, all attack!”. if this is the same band, i have seen them in concert a few times.

    i could be completely off base, too.

  20. Jake 24.Apr.08 at 8:04 am

    Not sure about that song. But their two albums are easy to find and totally worth the money. “tonight will ruin tomorrow” and “Here is where i cross my fingers” You can get them on interpunk.

  21. scooterboy 24.Apr.08 at 10:55 am

    same band, mo’ definitely, then. i have “tonight will ruin tomorrow” somewhere at home. i like them. that IS them on the comp i was talking about, too.

  22. Jake 24.Apr.08 at 2:08 pm

    Nice. Yeah they kick ass. But the new band from the singer/guitarist is awesome. They are called the evening rig. They are on my space. check them out!
