A Road Love Song

So today marks the last of the “love” songs for What’s Playing Wednesday. It’s actually kind of hard for me to write this post because I have Portishead crooning in my ear, but I’ll try my best.

Next month I’ll be playing “fire” songs. I can’t wait. Really. I’m very excited. Can’t you tell? But that won’t happen until next week. For now, let’s focus on the last love song. I posted a year…maybe more ago about my past crushes. The lead singer of this band was in the list and if I’m completely honest, I still have a bit of a crush on him. He has charisma and a flair for fashion that baffles me even as it attracts me.

Scott Weiland started off with fuchsia hair and baggy clothes and turned into this really interesting man who wears what he wants. I love it. He kind of makes me think of David Bowie slash Jim Morrison. Anyway, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Stone Temple Pilots’ music since they came out and today’s song is “Interstate Love Song”.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month of “love” songs and I also hope I’ll see you next week for “fire” *said like Beavis* For now, here’s “Interstate Love Song”:

A History of Crushes

As I was sitting in the dentist’s chair yesterday, I began thinking about all the silly crushes I had over the years. Well, they weren’t silly at the time and all of them revolved around musicians. Mind you, the idea for this post came about because of my bid to ignore the scraping, whirring, and strange noises going on in my mouth. No, I didn’t have anything but a cleaning done, but it just isn’t natural to hear all that crap going on inside your head. I think that’s why people don’t like the dentist.

But that isn’t the point of this post. No, I’m going to give a pictorial list of my crushes through the years. I hope you find this as funny as I did.

First off:

Yes, Duran Duran. I mentioned in my previous post how I used to daydream (in 3rd grade) how they were going to come save me from my class. They were pretty and non-threatening to a kid.


Sebastian Bach of Skid Row. I was a teenager by this time. Thirteen or fourteen. He was beautiful and he could SING! Plus those leather pants really were hot. Gr-owl! Of course, this is when my penchant for bad boys developed.


Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots. This was high school. I saw that hair, those cheekbones, and I forgot all about poor Sebastian. Scott W was like a breath of fresh air. I still hold some affection for him because he’s so crazy cool (even though he’s had some um, problems over the years).


Chris Cornell formerly of Soundgarden and Audioslave. This was my college crush. Those moody eyes, yum. I thought he was deep and sensitive, I mean, c’mon! Doesn’t he look like a heartbreaker to you??

More recently though:


Mr. Rob Zombie. Don’t ask me why. He doesn’t exactly fit the usual mold of ‘hot’, but I find him very sexy. He’s got the long hair, the beard, the tattoos. He’d be my mother’s worst nightmare come to life. Hubba, hubba!

So, that’s a pictorial list of my crushes through the years. Do you agree/disagree? Who were your crushes? (Don’t forget to vote for what kind of Fantasy Man you’d like to see!)
