(This is Why) Country Music Sucks

Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and that's mine right there.


I work down at the Pizza Pit
And I drive an old Hyundai
I still live with my mom and dad
I'm 5 foot 3 and overweight
I'm a scifi fanatic
A mild asthmatic
And I've never been to second base
But there's whole ‘nother me
That you need to see
Go checkout MySpace

'Cause online I'm out in Hollywood
I'm 6 foot 5 and I look damn good
I drive a Maserati
I'm a black-belt in karate
And I love a good glass of wine
It turns girls on that I’m mysterious
I tell them I don't want nothing serious
'Cause even on a slow day
I could have a three way
Chat with two women at one time
I’m so much cooler online
So much cooler online

When I get home I kiss my mom
And she fixes me a snack
And I head down to my basement bedroom
And fire up my Mac
In real life the only time I’ve ever even been to L.A
Is when I got the chance with the marching band
To play tuba in the Rose Parade

Online I live in Malibu
I pose for Calvin Klein, I've been in GQ
I'm single and I'm rich
And I've got a set of six pack abs that would blow your mind
It turns girls on that I’m mysterious
I tell them I don't want nothing serious
'Cause even on a slow day
I could have a three way
Chat with two women at one time
I’m so much cooler online
So much cooler online

When you got my kind of stats
It’s hard to get a date
Let alone a real girlfriend
But I grow another foot and I lose a bunch of weight
Every time I login

Online
I’m out in Hollywood
I’m 6 foot 5 and I look damn good
Even on a slow day
I could have a three way
Chat with two women at one time
I’m so much cooler online
Yeah, I’m cooler online
I’m so much cooler online
Yeah, I’m cooler online

Yeah, I’m cooler online

Yeah, I’ll see ya online



So by simply reading between the lines, creating an alternate personality for yourself online is a perfectly acceptable thing to do. Isn't that, by definition, escapism? You're lying about yourself online so you seem cooler, because your "real self" sucks, and you can't be bothered to do anything about it. Josh says it's his favorite song, which is really something. The music itself is alright (I really like the instrumental bit at the end), but the lyrics are just maddening.

I know I'm guilty of doing that to a point, which is one of the things that bothers me so much about (some) other furries. Their families (and friends) are cool with and accept it, and they're hardly worried about what other people think. Perhaps Halloween (and possibly my birthday) will be two days where I can start solving that problem, but for now, it's incredibly frustrating.

(if it wasn't already obvious, we listened to Country all night tonight)

There's another one, here, that's just as annoying. As far as I can tell from the lyrics, the guy is a complete stranger, and he wants to know "everything about you" including things you wouldn't even tell your friends and whatnot. A bit nosy, no?

It's like, not to say all Country is terrible (there are a couple select songs I do like), but most of it makes you wonder if the artists even read and think about the lyrics before recording the song.
website free tracking

Aside from that though, just waiting on my transfer to Paypal so I can pay for that Star Ocean guide (final price was $40 something, given that the shipping was $12.00, because the guide's so large / heavy), but I've still heard nothing from the question I sent regarding that leopard PSP faceplate. Meh to that. The bank should be open on Tuesday, so I can just stay up really early in the morning, place the order on the website, go to the bank and get a money order, then wait 'till 10, see if EB Games has that Phantom Hourglass Zelda game, and even if they don't, ask to be taken up to Shoppers to mail the money order off. Sounds good to me :3
