HumpDay Q And A…


We Would Like To Know…Time to Link Up with Mamarazzi, Queso, And Crazymama.

Have you missed me? I’ve read some the previous questions only to not feel up to it. I would have loved to participated in the shoppin’ quizzy… That is up my alley!! But I just felt like crap.

And I don’t just link up and leave, I invest my day to visitin’ all the linkers… Call me Crazy but That’s why I link up. To meet new friends!! I want readers. That’s the answer from way back… the last WWTK I did 4wks ago.

Now on with the show… Questions from Queso. I think she must be one of my missin’ sisters becuz all the Q&A’s she asks are so close to my heart!


{1} Do you have any musical talents? ABSOLUTELY NONE! I can’t carry a tune in a bucket with a lid! I did teach myself to play 3 songs on the piano. My grandparents have an old upright that is sooooo old and way outta tune. My Daddy took lessons as a child. He could play it and the saxophone… and he was actually in a band in high school but that where that talented ended. My brother, the dumbass sold Daddy’s Sax for drug money. And my mother didn’t go buy it back or tell anyone becuz someone would gone and bought it back but NO! It’s gone forever. Anyway, I can play old MacDonald, Brother John, and Reveille… see, not bound for America’s Got Talent!

{2} What role, if any, does music play in your life? No real impact but I have always had a record player or cassette player… for that matter, I’m old enough to have had an 8track player! I have listened to just about every genre of music and the only one I can’t quite wrap my head around is Jazz. It’s just too… for lack of a better word… scatterbrained. I am not fond of country or rap. I have my daughters convinced that if I listen to country music it will make me puke.

{3} What is your all time favorite song? Slow Ride by Foghat! My Daddy was shocked when I told him that it was my favorite song… I was 14.

{4} Do you sing in the shower? No. The Cats Hate It When I Sing In There. One of them is very critical of my singin’ and yowls at me when I do sing… LOUDLY YOWLS AT ME!! As if to say, “Shut the fuck up!”

{5} Has a song ever made you cry? Yes! It depends on what mood I’m in when I hear it but certain songs remind of certain people and I cry. “Like a Rock” by Bob Segar reminds of Roy and I cry. That will be playin’ at his funeral.

I burst into tears over “Johnny and June” by Heidi Newfield… AT THE GYM!! Big sobbing tears… becuz I have that kinda love. “When your gone, I wanna go too… like Johnny and June.”

SHIT!!! I’m cryin’ right now!

And then there is that song that Johnny Cash covered by Nine Inch Nails… Can’t think of the name… Wait right here a moment while I google. HURT… That’s it! It just so movin’ and hauntin’ that I was stirred to tears the first time I heard it!

 The video is what does it. It gets me every time.

sssshhh… Don’t tell the girls I listened to country and didn’t puke!

There's country and then there's country. Some of it I love, some of it gets really twangy and not so good. I really like the country rock that's out now.

Camie Rae said...

Ha ha technically it isn't REALLY country music so you're safe! Ha I love that song too!

Jill said...

I remember watching the Hurt music video a few months before Johnny died, and thinking, "This is his goodbye." Gave me goosebumps. And tears in the eyes. Incredible.

I love the Johnny Cash cover. I prefer it over the original, actually, and that never happens! Thinking of that song now gives me goosebumps. Great picks!

Clairity said...

Jazz isn't my cup of tea either. Country, now that depends, I'm not big on them but there are some songs that get me rockin' LOL.
