Concert crush

The last concert I attended was Katy Perry.

And it was amazing.

So, I had to follow it up with something equally as awesome, if not more.

And I think I did.

The other night I saw Mumford and Sons at the Waterfront. And it was ridiculous – and by ridiculous here I mean, of course, INSANELY good. And I’m kind of in love with it. Is that possible? I mean, in love with them?

This is their new song….I’m obsessed.

And to add a cherry on top of the amazing sundae the concert introduced me to Dawes.


It was like this. Only more live. And in Louisville.

Also, Marcus Mumford has the voice of an angel. There, I said it.


Obviously the best idea ever

OK, so my thoughts are when you pick your five you should also be allowed an alternate, should one of your choices do something as horrible as get a bad haircut or date Scarlett Jowhocares or something equally as horrible to taint their amazingness.

If that’s the case, then I know who mine is. Ryan Gosling. Obvs.

Why is he not in my five already? Well, because that’s just too easy. He’s in everyone’s five. Except for my friend Stephanie. Her type is completely different, meaning the number one on her list is the guy from the All-State commercials.

However, I do have a bit of a crush on Mr. Gosling as well, which is why I find the following so awesome.

It’s from a tumblr I follow called, appropriately (earmuffs, kiddos) Fuck Yeah, Ryan Gosling.

Because really, who doesn’t look at him and think that? Besides Stephanie.

Someone has found all these photos of him and puts text on it that is more often than not as funny or funnier than the one I posted above. They all start out pretty much the same: “Hey girl…” It’s so easy, and amazing. And hilarious. Why didn’t I think of it?

Foiled again.

Jealous, for so many reasons

We’re starting a new feature over here at on-account-of. You can look for it every Friday and it’s under the category called “Wish I’d thought of this.”

What’s it all about? I’m glad you asked. See, there are things I see or stories I hear of and a lot of the time I’m like, “Damn. Why didn’t I think of that?”

And what a perfect way to describe this video I’ve posted below.

Some of you long-time readers may remember the first love letter I ever wrote on this site. It was back when I was a baby blogger and it was just lil’ ol’ me professing my love for Jason Segel.

Totally lame in comparison to this girl, who wrote him a song, played it on her guitar and sang it for him and — here’s the part where I’m most jealous because I totally could write a cute song and really need to learn to play guitar – he’s seen it. In fact, he said it was maybe his favorite thing ever. And, according to his Twitter, he’s working on a response.


Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go attempt to write a song for Robert Downey Jr. and learn how to play the banjo or piano or something. Because that’s what gets results. Plus, he’s next on my list.

The Five

There’s been a lot of talk about The Five lately. And by a lot I mean it’s come up twice in the past week or so, one of which was over on, one of my favorite blogs I follow and if you’re not reading her stuff yet you should be.

Then there was that time earlier this summer where Liz, Shane, Star and I spent an hour at Taproom coming up with our alternate five.

Know what I’m talking about? If not then it’s probably better you don’t.

In case you’d like to educate yourselves, though, watch this clip from FRIENDS:

My five?

1. Jason Segel – On account of the funniness. And adorableness. And he loves the Muppets. Plus, we’re soulmates, remember?
2. Robert Downey Jr. – DUH.
3. Michael C. Hall – I just want to hear his voice. All the time. And he’s not too bad to look at, either.
4. Ryan Kwanten – Not watching True Blood? You should start. If for no other reason than Jason Stackhouse, played by this guy. He’s got the Southern accent, the Australian accent and a ridonkulous six-pack.
5. Bradley Cooper – Because he’s beautiful, and hello, have you seen him speak French fluently? Yeah.

And while I don’t have a significant other right now that has to be OK with this list, when the time comes, he better be.

Who are your five?

Dear Naveen,
I’ll admit, it took some time to warm up to you when I started watching LOST. Blame it on several teenage years spent watching “Party of Five” – Matthew Fox is hot, too. Then there was Sawyer, who they showed a lot of with his shirt off, and Charlie, who is always hilarious and who doesn’t like a guy with a good sense of humor?

But then, something changed. Maybe it was when I heard you speak in your real accent – which I’m a sucker for. Maybe it was when, on the show, you broke someone’s neck with just your legs and I realized how seriously bad-ass you are.

And I know that’s not how you are in real life, or maybe it is. And you like older women, which means I don’t have a chance because I’m a bit younger than you. But, I’m so happy you’re on this show, because even if it confuses me, sometimes I can just sit there and say “Sayid’s there, I’ll just look at him.”

I don’t know what I’m gonna do without getting to see you every week once this show ends in May – good thing I have the DVDs though, because, I’m sorry, The Brave One was horrible.

Love, Laura

He’s my soulmate…or at least I want him to be.

Dear Jason Segel,
I think you’re awesome.
While I don’t know too much about you personally – except for what I’ve read in my Rolling Stone and a recent issue of Vanity Fair – I know enough. I know that you make me laugh – I Love You, Man was hilarious, and you are a big part of why I now can’t miss an episode of How I Met Your Mother (I love NPH too, though).
I know that I remember thinking you were great when you were the angry guy in Dead Man on Campus and when you were in the highly underrated movie, Slackers, with Devon Sawa, before everyone realized how awesome you were after Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
You’re cute – I think of you in real life being like the character you play in I Love You, Man – I hope you wear swim trunks and Uggs out to walk around in real life. I know you drive a Vespa in real life, which is also pretty cool. And I hope you’re a little like Marshall on HIMYM because I am totally (totes magotes) jealous of Alyson Hannigan for getting to be your tv wife.
But maybe my favorite thing about you is that you are writing the new Muppets movie. It’s nice to know someone appreciates the Muppets as much as – actually, maybe even more than I do.
That is really all. Just wanted you to know I love you. 🙂
