Getting Back to Normal (or what passes as normal around here)

But first:
Q: What is Bush's position on Roe vs. Wade?

A: He really doesn't care how people get out of New Orleans.
------------------------
I am the last person you will find watching the Country Music channel. In fact, it only existed in my peripheral vision, like I knew it was there but didn't ever care enough to hear about it. In fact, I thought it was called the Alabama network or something. I am clueless about country music, completely.

Ah, so what would get me searching madly through those upper channels looking for this channel that no self-respecting Jerseyan would watch? But of course: Bon Jovi.



Apparently they do some kind of concert-thing where they put a rock band with a country band and they sing each other's music together. I guess sorta like the Linkin Park/Jay-Z mash-up. So Bon Jovi was on last night with some band with Sugar in their name (sorry, once I see Jon, everything else is a blur). It was AWESOME. The other band had a female singer with an amazing voice, but I still wanted to kick her ass because she was so close to Jon and you could tell she was totally in love with him. One of the other female band members was like, I have to make a cheat sheet for the songs because how can I concentrate on stage when Jon is in front of me? I hear ya, girl.

They sounded great and Jon looked AMAZING (Jonny, the hair is just a little too blond for me though). I felt like this was a nice little preview to the Bon Jovi mania I will be experiencing shortly. Tuesday is the release of their new CD, and they will be promoting it on all the morning shows and nighttime shows, and then they'll be touring. They are in Jersey on 12/19 and 12/21 - so I will be going to both shows, of course. And I am sure they will tour again in the summer and play Giants Stadium, which always rules.

I am like a 16 year old when Bon Jovi comes out with new music, I just can't help it!

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

annie said...

I just saw his video. Gawd I was listening to him 20 years ago.
How is it that he is still so gorgeous? and the bod? He's been working out!
Rawr!

I watched it SEVERAL times last night, they repeated it through the night. My body clock kept waking up, I think I saw it 3 times and then today as well. I am going to the preview show Monday night of his concert in NY. It's played in big cinema houses, sounds fun and I cannot wait.

I wasn't a fan of this Sugarland, but today I am, she did well, but I agree too close to Jon and Richie for my liking!

Too blonde and still packin' a package!

T said...

Gotta love Jon!
Oh, and Have a Nice Day!

Marie said...

I'm not into country music at all. Mmmm...I love Jon! I very much look forward to his new CD!

Patsy Darling said...

Once again I can't go to the Bon Jovi concert, it's too close to Christmas can't get the day off. I think it's an omen that I should never see them live.

Like a fine wine, some things just get better with age. Yummy!

Titanium said...

My sisters & I all watched it.. all three of us talking on the phone about how hot Jon still is and how we will definitely have to catch him in concert again, as we love the music, have seen Bon Jovi several times when they passes thru our part of the country & it embarasses our children (an added bonus.. hee hee!).

My parents called during the first showing of Crossroads to see if I was watching. My dad reminding me of the lifesize poster I had of Jon with long hair in my bedroom as a teenager.

I, too, am looking forward to Tuesday! :)

If anyone needs Bon Jovi ifo, they know where to come.

Raehan said...

Funny, I've heard that joke from three different people in the last twenty-four hours.

Bon-Jovi is very cute.

Hi there, I just read the last few posts and I'm glad you decided to stay. The pairing up country/rock bands reminds me of my husbands Judgment Night CD from the early 90's. It was heavy heavy metal and hard core rap (Neither of which I really listen to) but it works.

Twist of Kate said...

HA! I stumbled on that yesterday while changing the channels. I was clicking away and saw Richie and paused in confusion. AHHAHAAHA! I am just catching up a bit here, you know because of the "job" thing...I'm glad you are sticking around, I would miss ya! Don't worry about your princess, and good luck with the job.....I knew we would get our jobs at the same time, I just knew it!!! :)

Michael Manning said...

Never saw this show. But I'm sure all we guys are on our way to the drug store for some Blonde hair dye! Enjoy!!

Redhead Mommy said...

That would be Sugar Creek, True. (Who else would be able to tell you your country music trivia but your bloggy hick friend from Michigan?? haha.

I have not seen this video...I need to watch more country music television, apparently.

Danielle said...

I love me some bon jovi!!!

Dawn said...

I can hardly wait to hear the new album and hear about your concert visits!

Camy Leon said...

If you feel that jealous over Bon Jovi, just imagine what his poor wife goes thru everyday. The man is darn HAWT! I feel so bad for that lady.

Natsthename said...

Yep, that band is Sugarland, and I like their sound, even though I'm not a country fan, either! I hope they play this in a repeat, cuz HE LOOKS HOT in the photo you posted! Way hot.

Stationery Queen said...

My husband says he watches the Country Music Channel just to laugh, but he must laugh A LOT. Whenever I turn the TV on in the bedroom, guess what channel it's on. Closet Country Boy, I think...
