Late 20s New Yorker. I edit music videos occasionally.
Yes that was me. YouTube deleted most of my House videos. I’ve been trying to reupload it but nothing seems to be working.
i think this is what anon was talking about: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/let-me-take-a-selfie
I kind of wish I didn’t click that.
I’m watching Sweeney Todd and missing my Dad like crazy. He’ll be gone 5 years this September. Anyway he loved that movie and he would walk around the house singing “God That’s Good” and “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” a lot. Only he didn’t know the words so he’d say things like “Mrs Lovett’s Pies! Sweet meat pies!” etc etc.
I remember the week he died my brother came over for dinner and we were screwing around with him as usual.
Dad: You know where I heard of that song first?
Dad: That movie with Ben Affleck
Me: No, that one came out a long time ago
Dad: The one with the girl
Joe: Pearl Harbor?
Dad: No no! The one with the girl from Jersey
(Joe and I share a look)
Me: OH! TRENTON GIRL?
Joe: Cleveland Girl?
Me: Poughkeepsie Girl?
Joe: Georgia Girl?
Me: Amboy Girl?
Dad: Yeah… that’s it. Anyway I saw it in that movie.
(two minutes pass)
Me: Hey dad…
Me: What’s the name of that movie again? The Ben Affleck movie. About the GIRL… from JERSEY!?
Dad: (embarrassed smile)… JERSEY Girl!
Me and Joe: HEEEEEEEEEEY!
Then another two minutes after that:
Me: GOD DAMN YOU!
Me: (singing) Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies, savory and sweet pies! IT’S STUCK IN MY HEAD!
Joe: (looks up) HEY! That’s that song from Jersey Girl!
Dad: THAT’S WHAT I SAID BEFORE!
I hate the first shower after a haircut. Bye bye cute hair. See you again in a few months after my next haircut.
