This may come as a shock to many of you, but I'm pretty dorky. And my boyfriend, well, he's not exactly the manliest of librarians (ok, well maybe he is...). We like dancing in public, skipping on the streets in spring and can't mention the word bacon without bursting into the hula song. Well tonight my nerdy mind was blown and it needed recording. Begin scene:
Katie is in the middle of a facebook shout-out to her brother in law, who was thoroughly traumatized over the holidays by her (and her boyfriend's) love of Too Cute! - the best show ever on animal planet...or the world.
Katie: Which Parry Gripp song should we post? Baby bunny or baby monkey?
TJ: Baby monkey....no, baby bunny.
Katie posts with glee after the two watch and dance to several videos.
Katie (hesitantly): Is it ok if I really actually like his songs, like sincerely? Like I like the tune and his voice and the style and the silly words and if they were longer or he made a record I would actually listen to them?
TJ: That's perfectly alright - I really like them too!
Katie: OK good cause I really like him.
Katie thinks to herself: Hrm, I wonder what he looks like or who he is. To wikipedia!!
Upon which she discovers...
Parry Gripp (born September 22, 1967) is a singer-songwriter as well as lead vocalist and guitarist for the pop punk band Nerf Herder.
Nerf Herder?!?!? For those that don't know, Nerf Herder was (is?) one of my favorite nerd-punk bands from the 90's, who I've learned still make occasion albums and apparently did the theme song to Buffy. So I guess I totally have listened to several albums by Parry Gripp already, and enjoyed his voice, the style and the silly words.
End scene. Queue music video I didn't remember existed:
Is this what you wanted, Sammy Hagar?
(and not at all known classics like Golf Shirt)
Ok, really done now.
