It’d stand to reason (and I’d really prefer) to have “Man In The Mirror”,”Rock With You” or another MJ song stuck in my head, but instead, for intermittent days on end, I’ve had the 1988 Poison classic “Nothin’ But A Good Time” in there.
I think it started after Bret Michaels nearly died while performing at the Tony Awards a month ago. I catch myself humming the chorus over and over. Then I’ll stop, take a moment to figure out what song that is, realize what song that is, and rack my brain over why it has grabbed a song by that walking infection of a man and refuses to let go. Eventually I give up and decide that I’ll stop pressing the issue and just ignore it–praying that this won’t be the time that the red bumps form.
Keeping with the graphic imagery, earlier tonight I had an exciting revelation about Gary Busey. Conan had Kevin Connolly of “Entourage” (a show I don’t really watch) as a guest. Connolly recounted the time when Busey guest starred and proceeded to chase him around the set, catch him, hold him down, and tickle him. After the interview I realized that Busey and one of the contestants on this season of “The Bachelorette” (a show I make a sad, conscious effort to watch) share similar features. Not just any contestant, but my favorite contestant–Michael. He got kicked off already, but he’s a break dancing instructor who apparently lives, like, two minutes from my apartment. Now that Jillian has sent him home it is clear to me that I need to get my hands on his address, sit on the curb across from his door, hold a red rose boutonniere, and hum the choruses of 80s hair band tunes to myself until he notices me. It doesn’t matter that he looks like a younger version of an infamous Hollywood mad man–all that matters is that his apartment is potentially within walking distance to mine so that I never have to stay the night after we bang. I mean…stay the night after we watch Lethal Weapon and floss our teeth. Because that’s what people who look like this have no other choice but to do:
