you think you're special? well, so do i

First of all, I must say, the Superbowl was a fantastic game, and I came out of it with a huge crush on Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. I always choose my favourite player before the game starts, almost always based on their smiles and how could I possibly resist this? And then when he turned out to be a fantastic player (and a helluva runner), the deal was done.
Also, you're a Virgo, and I'm a Cancer - it just works.


Anyway, have you ever noticed that certain musical artists specialize in certain emotions? "Examples!" You demand. No need for insolence, I'm on it!

Lil Wayne
Speciality: exasperation
Maybe it's just that he's so busy being genius that he has no time for the tomfoolery of others. All I know is Lil Wayne pulls out an exasperated sigh with the ease of Paris Hilton's childhood tutor.
Best examples: 2:22-2:24 in the "Lollipop" video; 0:19 in "Mr. Carter"; 0:09-0:24 in "Dr. Carter"

Prince
Speciality: sexually frustrated, in an angry way
Well, okay, it's more of just a mix of anger and horniness mainly because Prince seems to have a perennial horniness underlying everything. But when he gets angry (without losing his horniness), the music gets excellent.
Best examples: the whole ending of "Darling Nikki"; most of "Something in the Water (Does Not Compute)" but 2:30-2:50 in particular; 4:35-5:20 of "The Dance"; "Temptation" for more of the sexually frustration than anger














prince likes getting laid
Marvin Gaye
Speciality: Sexually frustrated, in a sad, pleading way
Best examples: I ain't getting obscure here; Marvin made his bread and butter on "please, baby" type songs - think "Sexual Healing", "Let's Get It On", "I Want You" and those are just the hits!

Mm, your footballer is lovely.
I managed to post before I'd actually put in the outfits, the point of the post, so when you commeneted it was half done. They're up now though, and I'm glad you agree with me about snow and windows, I think quite a few people secretly do.

Title :"Prince likes getting laid"
Description: "Gets pissed when he doesn't"
GENIUS.

And I missed the superbowl (obviously), but my dad emailed me and said that half way through the game they started getting the Canadian broadcast with all Canadian ads and such...And he said that all his manly friends and their manly sons watched the halftime show with 3-D glasses on.
