Yee-haw, mon.

What could I possibly add to make this even funnier?

LOLOL. Wow. Well, it's funny cuz I was gonna suggest that maybe it wouldn't be THAT bad because Willie doesn't so much SING as he does TALK his lyrics, almost (the article put it a little more eloquently, saying something about his conversational delivery or something). Hmm. But yeah, I can't say I have any interest in hearing it :-)

Anna said...

Huh.
Interesting guy, interesting idea.

Fred said...

My favorite part of the article is this quote:

"Nelson launched a successful film career ("Electric Horseman," "Wag the Dog")..."

Maybe it's me, but I wouldn't really define that as very successful.

Renee said...

Yeah, I haven't seen either of those movies...

Oh, wait. Was Wag The Dog about presidents or something? I may have seen that one. But still, to say he has a successful film career is just a tad off :-)

Jen said...

"While the music on "Countryman" might raise the eyebrows of country purists, so will the cover. With green marijuana leaves on a red and yellow background, the cover art makes the CD look like an oversized pack of rolling papers."

Yeah, he MUST have been high when he came up with this idea.

(Actually, Willie Nelson is quite the stoner. Toby Keith does a funny segment at his concerts called "I'll never smoke weed with ol' Willie again.")

Jen said...

"The marijuana imagery reflects Jamaican culture...but it also reflects Nelson's fondness for pot smoking."

That's like saying that Rob has a "fondness" for beer.

Uli said...

This isn't as actually out there as it sounds. They've been playing quite a lot of it on KCRW (kcrw.com) and it doesn't sound too far off the planet. In fact, just like Willie Nelson with less country and a bit of a beat behind him.

Jen said...

Hey, Uli is Australian! Plus, he/she has a really funny blog.

Nik said...

I don't like Willie Nelson singing country, so I'm sure I would be disgusted by him doing reggae! The article was pretty funny though. I wish I had a successful movie career. like he has.

Rob said...

I have a fondness for lots of other things too ya know. :(

Anna said...

lol Nik! I thin kyou might already have as successful a film career as he does ;)

Rob dear, we know you're quite the Renaissance man- There's more to you than just beer!

Jen said...

Yeah. You like boobs too.

Willie is still alive?

Jamie Dawn said...

Willie Nelson singing Reggae is like water and oil, Bill & Hillary, etc... They just don't mix.

What's next? Michael Jackson singing opera?
Oh, good Lord! Just imagine it...

Jen said...

I spit out my pop at the image of MJ and opera.

Although frankly, I'm not sure that anything "he" (and I use the word loosely) does would surprise me anymore.

Meegan said...

Whoa, this is scary.

Uli said...

Thanks Jen - it's she - and MJ and opera, please no!

Renee said...

I feel like a loser for admitting this, but I kinda like some old Willie songs.

Jen, Toby's song is hilarious, no?

Jen said...

Yeah, that song is awesome.

Nik said...

Have you gals heard Toby's "Only the Best Looking Tuna Get to be Star Kissed"? That's prolly my fave one of his bus songs.

Renee said...

Yes, I actually heard that one on Bob & Tom one morning! It's really somethin to be in the car by yourself, laughing so hard you have tears in your eyes. Other drivers probably thought I was a lunatic :-) But yeah, I think that's one of my faves too, Nikki.

Jen said...

I haven't heard that one!

Nik said...

I love listening to Bob & Tom. I listen to it every morning on my way to the gym and home in the morning. They're so funny and naughty. I get a kick out of hearing them try to get around the FCC rules. It's awesome!
Jen, you have to hear that song, it's a riot. In case you couldn't figure it out, it's about a girl(tuna) who shows up after the show and she's not exactly high quality(not the best looking), and you know where this is going.

Renee said...

I'm not as fond of Bob & Tom as I was of Howard Stern. But since his show isn't on here, I'm stuck with Bob & Tom. Which isn't often, mind you, cuz most of my morning driving is with Brent, and he likes to listen to annoying kid music. Plus, I don't think that show is appropriate for him :-)

But I am getting used to them, and they do have funny shit on there. The constant laughing irritates me, though.

Nik said...

That bugs the shit out of me too. Especially when they insert their own laugh tracks into the funny songs and sometimes it's just annoying. But the raunch is funny sometimes.

Renee said...

I know, cuz then you can barely hear the song! Ugh. They bug.
