21 the Rx? orgy!


the germanatrix and i went to the ted leo show the other night. and the best thing about the ted leo show was cousin jason. cousin jason is ted leo's cousin- jason. we know this because ted leo told us so.

(actually, he's nephew jason, but we misheard and called him cousin jason just long enough for the name to stick so we're sticking with it.)

cousin jason spent the entire ted leo show standing backstage attempting to romance three girls through tremendously awkward dance. everything from the robot to an irish jig. at one point he was so drained by his efforts that he walked on stage and grabbed some of the bands' bottled water for refreshment. the germanatrix and i thought this a particularly ballsy move.

apparently cousin jason and the three girls did not realize they were visible from the wings until midway through the show, at which point considerably more thought and artistry went into their dancing. away with the robot and the irish jig. suddenly there was shimmying and ass grabbing and grinding, all delivered with a certain bollywood sass. a we know you are watching us making a massive sexual spectacle of ourselves in this surprisingly visible backstage area sensibility.

cousin jason's moment in the bonafide limelight (pictured above) didn't come until the final song. when he and the three girls threw caution to the wind and rushed the stage. raising their fists in the air, they clustered round an abandoned microphone and shouted- offkey, yet with heartwrenching enthusiasm. cousin jason sang his little heart out with the fury of those connected to the famous by blood. i am cousin jason. hear me roar! ted leo tossed the lot of them a sheepish grin.

leaving the stage, cousin jason walked between two of the three girls. he had a hand on each ass. the germanatrix and i looked at each other, exclaimed hell yeah, cousin jason, and spent the rest of the night grinning like fools.

My crotchety highschool mathematics teacher always said that the youth of today spent too much of their time grab-assing around. I wonder if she is a ted leo fan...

oline said...

surely so.

Les Savy Ferd said...

judging from the picture i see you and the Germ were in our standard concert viewing perch?

oline said...

yep. for a maybe half a moment we pondered elsewhere, but then the perch called us home.

Les Savy Ferd said...

for a person who so emphatically hates birds, you have some 'splainin' to do, what with 'perching' and such.

oline said...

BLECH. don't you be evoking those beasts around here, monsieur le pirate.

Les Savy Ferd said...

its not like you to be so imprecise.
Beast, def. (noun) Any nonhuman animal, esp. a four-legged mammal.

And while yes, you could include a bird in this category, it does not play to the word's strengths. Frankly, you can do better than this, WordsmithsOline.

oline said...

playing on the word's connotations of evil, terror and general ick- they are precisely wretched beasts. (and please don't cite beauty & the beast as an example of how beasts can overcome their beastiness and become cuddly beasts.)

i do kind of have a crush on big bird though.

*floodgates open*

oline said...

nooooooooooooooo!
*floodgates close*

Les Savy Ferd said...

you can't just * * your way out of this one my dear.

oline said...

pirate honey, it's my blog and i'll ** if i want to.

Les Savy Ferd said...

au contraire. this blog comment strand is the public domain. unless you privatize it and make it a little gated community with matching doormen and polo grounds and little men in funny hats sipping sherry and talking about fiduciary equities, then I'm afraid my voice carries as much currency as yours or the next guy/girl/pirate/leather pants salesperson.

*floodgates re-opened*

oline said...

so you're saying i can't ** if i want to?

Les Savy Ferd said...

you can * * all you want, I'm just saying it might not get you anywhere. Admitting to a crush on Big Bird should have brought any number of sassy comments from the various correspondents of the BlogOline. Yet they remain strangely hushed...

oline said...

i think they aren't ones for backtracking and have moved on.

Les Savy Ferd said...

are you calling me a backtracker, punk!?

oline said...

you're quite the pugnacious pirate these days!

Les Savy Ferd said...

if only that word didn't have pug in it, I'd like it very much.

Les Savy Ferd said...

'cause who doesn't like nacious? like tenacious. d.

oline said...

i don't know. nacious is pretty gross. and pugs aren't exactly appealing. but put it altogether and it's kind of kickass.
