I've Got About $6 And A Toonie


After a weekend spent in Vegas, I'm surprised I have any money at all, but I do have a little, and will send it on to James Blunt in the hopes he feels it is enough. You see, people of earth. James Blunt has offered to never sing in public again, or play for money or record or do anything that causes him to be placed in front of us, the public.

His only condition? He wants to get paid by someone. I can understand that. I mean he worked hard on that one song and thus should be rewarded for the rest of his life because he managed to pen a couple of hundred words and string together 3 minutes of music.

So, after scouring my pockets, and the pockets of a Canadian next to me, I have come up with $8 in combined North American currency. I think this is important because it shows that this is a worldwide effort to eradicate James Blunt from the airwaves of the world. I also think that $8 is probably what his career is worth. I haven't noticed him rushing out a new album, or even an old album. I keep trying to see how he can get another album or something out of his one song. Maybe just a whole album devoted to covers of that one song. There really is nothing left for him to do in life except travel to casinos, play an hour long set, take the cash and some woman he can schmooze for the night and then repeat the process the next day. I think he knows that which is why he made the offer in the first place.

i think dude has some talent. he's just too damn lazy to work hard at getting another cd out. probably burned bridges and the right producers don't want to work for him. idk?

Didnt someone else write that song for him? I remember reading something about a female friend of his... How little i care.

I've got some Canadian Tire money I'm willing to throw in.

I think the $8 sounds high--I would low-ball my offer.

Praetorian said...

mmm... I'm willing to give him all my monopoly money... LOL

I'm in for $1.57 I found in the couch along with a button and an old Dorito.

jax said...

was that CAD or USD?

i'll see your 8 bucks and raise you a dollar.

Mooshki said...

Now that's a worthwhile cause. I'll get out my checkbook.

Speaking of money, and again, not trying to start a political argument, but holy sh*t I can't believe the House didn't pass the bailout. Hope you all got your dough out of the market.

Bad Fish said...

Ooooh come now, peeps. You wouldnt pay more to see him fade away and stop bothering all the supermodels with his "I wrote that song for you" crap? lol

Mooshki said...

Isn't that the cheesiest musician pick-up line ever? I bet thousands of girls fall for it every day. I have gfs who will only date musicians. Then they wonder why their relationships never work out, LOL.

Maybe he could star in the made-for-TV biopic of Tom Cruise that would only be shown within the Scientology headquarters. That's better than singing in public.

Put me down for two-fiddy and a bus token.

C'mon Enty don't you remember the excruciating 'Goodbye my Lover'? Probably not, as it sounded the same as the other one. Three people wrote 'You're Beautiful' and it's going through my head now, damn you.

As a Brit I feel I ought to chip in, but only if he goes into exile. There's GBP 3.45 in my cookie jar, that's about USD 5.00.

Bleccch.

Maybe he can start naming his genital warts after each model or starlet.

whoa...that was gross...

But you know he's gotta have SOME kinda V.D. after all the f*cking around.

West End Girl said...

I have £2.79 spare. I'll give up a Caffe Nero latte for him to vamoosh. Wanker.

selenakyle said...

mooshki--

WHAT? The last news I heard this morning said it was prolly gonna pass...

FUCKING IDIOTS!!!!!!

That's it...I'm writing in Mickey Mouse on every stinkin' ballot from now on, from our town mayor right on up the food chain.

I'm sick to death of the inmates running the GD asylum.

Well, I never thought I'd be so happy about being poor.

'Least we didn't just lose our shirts--we weren't wearing shirts to begin with, metaphorically.

We might make out OK off the woes of the hot shots in our town who spent wildly and rubbed in our faces.

HA HAAAA!!! I'm smelling a new boat on the horizon!

BlahFrickinBlah said...

I'd pay this prick to take a bath. You can smell him through that pic. Ewww.

Mooshki said...

Selena, there are lots of good deals these days, aren't there? :)

Lisa said...

James Blunt not worth the price of a bullet, so I'll pass.

House Republicans tanking the market over hurt feelings? Unreal. No wonder they are so impressed with the baby-talk express that is Caribou Barbie.

selenakyle said...

heee heee! You lil' scamps crack me up!

Hell yeah, any toy you want, one's for sale.

'Cept for a stinkin' Wi, which Hubby is jonesing for...

mooshki-
yeah, really stupid move on the government's part.
unfortunately, if folks start pulling out of the market, we'll have another huge crash, and a real-life depression on our hands.
all we can do is sit and wait for things to come back up, because, eventually, it will.

Mooshki said...

Bunny, sometimes it's nice to be broke - I don't have much to lose, LOL! And, thank god, I've got a job that stands almost no chance of being downsized. (Knock on wood.)

DetroitRocker said...

I'll give you all I have left from when I went to Vegas. Two .40 cent payout slips that no machine in the whole damn casino would take. Let me tell you I tried to spend them.

DetroitRocker said...

Oh I forgot you can have my worthless stocks too, as I don't see anyone wanting to buy them right now. There goes my future retirement fund.

Is there anymore room for my husband and me in your mom and dad's basement? We'll be really quiet.

c17 said...

I've got $2.64 in my car ashtray if he NEVER gives sound to that broke-ass, pre-pubescent, squeaky faux so-called voval "styling" ever again. Just let me know where to send it.

F'n wanker.

c17 said...

"vocal". Not that he'd know what that is.

Bwahahaahahaha! That was a great giggle!

We should ALL be paid for doing nothing.
