Sign you up just to cross you off his checklist

For the record: from "this is underwhelming" to "OMG Blake is the future of (male) American pop music!!!! (until he flops because no one else loves this as much as I do and joins the Click Five at McDonald's)" in under an hour--that's got to be some kind of record.

Seriously, "Break Anotha" is a dream pop song for me--how did I not recognize that at first listen? I think I'm going to need to make a list of all the amazing elements in this song, though I'll try and hold out until we've got a good version. And "Know My Name" is great as well!

God, I am so predictable. Should I just order my Blaker Girls uniform now and get it over with?

woo hoo Blake has delivered. I am loving the tuneage which i found in my inbox this very morning. How utterly glorious! Yes, order your blaker girl costume now, mine is on express delivery!

Yay Paul! I'm so glad I have someone to like it with :D especially since I'll be surprised if it gets too many enthusiastic reactions--I can see some "eh, it's OK" ones, but I'll be surprised if it gets too much love.

I think we had the same initial reaction...I am now loving "Break Anotha" too! And I'm a HUGE Blake fan, so I was getting worried for a sec. All worry is gone now! It took a couple of spins to sink in, but it's brilliant. I really like "Know My Name" too. I can't wait to hear the entire CD.

BLAKER GIRLS UNIFORM, LAWLZ I JUST WET MYSELF.

I like this too!! Don't know much about Blake other than Rosie O and Elizabeth Hasselcunt like him...

Paul said...

Adem! You can't say hasselc*** on PPG's site :P It just seems wrong. I am approving of Blakes hair up not down. Down is dowdy on him. The end.

But it's my favourite word Paul!
(sorry ppg...)

Poster Girl said...

Me neither! And it's good to know people out there had a similar reaction. Plus, you, me, Paul, Adem--that's four people! The world has to be next.

One of the best parts of American Idol has to be the puns the fans come up with for their signs and for themselves--some are tragic, some are brilliant. Some are both! And ha, I'm in college--I didn't even think twice about it ;)

Then you should be happy-ish, Paul, because I think his hair is up in the promo pictures (not so fond of the hat, though) I've seen :)

Paul, please, we all know Poster Girl probably walks around at school in red thigh high vinyl boots with a riding crop in her hand, swatting at young co-eds like a naughty, wanton vixen.

Oh, God, sorry PG... I promised I wouldn't force you to live out my selfish fantasys anymore. I know, I know... you need to lead your own life.

It's just so hard to let go.

Poster Girl said...

Adem, you weren't kidding! You've definitely beat my by now--sorry about the new addiction ;) Huge yay that you're enjoying it, though!

Oh, good, J'ason, does that mean I can stop bringing the riding crop to class? I'll keep wearing the boots, I promise...
