The Food and Wine Hedonist

leave your inhibitions at the door

Happy Belated 2nd Birthday to this Blog!

Really?  This blog had its 2nd birthday a month ago and I totally spaced on it?  If this were one of my kids, I’m pretty certain that my lungs would’ve been ripped out and crammed up my rear.  But, mercifully, Boom Boom rarely reads my posts.

I’ve had a blast doing this for the past two years, and I’m really grateful for you all coming by and reading my posts.  Whether you’re a regular reader (I think I’m up to seven!) or if you’re one of the hundreds that came across this blog because you Googled  “Huey Lewis Penis Size” – I ‘m still thankful you’re my internet friend.

To show my gratitude, I’m going to re-post my very first Guilty Pleasures post…  I know, I know, you can thank me later.

You know what a guilty pleasure is, don’t you?  It’s that song that you know you should hate but you crank the volume up the second it comes on.  They are like opinions and wrinkled stars, everyone has one.  I have many (guilty pleasures, not ringpieces).

A couple of days ago,  Piehole A was singing this song and cackling hysterically at how bad it is.  (I’m so very proud that my 10 year-old gets it.)  I hope it sticks in your head as much as it did in ours.

Apparently, Rebecca’s a 14-yr old who’s mother paid $4000 for this song – writing, audio recording, and video.  Sure, it went viral for the wrong reasons and was labeled the worst song ever.  But it was covered in Glee, sold a shitload of downloads, and she’s in the new Katy Perry video.  Who’s laughing now?

    I was planning to simply say, “Happy late-iversary!” and am now resisting the urge to be the 2 billionth person to explode with joy-hate over this song.

    The auto-tuning… the lyrics… the pained, fake smile…

    I also wonder about the sales pitch for the Ark Music Factory. They claim they’ll make your rich, spoiled, talentless teenager a star for x-dollars. And they say, “Look what we did for Rebecca Black!” “Um. Sure. She’s a mockery, but I guess that’s true. Who else?” “Uh… did we already mention Rebecca Black?”

      What I always thought was funny was that they auto-tuned her to be nasally!

      I can honestly say that I’d NEVER pay for that for my kids. However, as a parent with girls approaching that age, I can see it where it might make some sense. People spend a a lot on summer camps and I can see where this project might take a month or two out of the summer. And you have an end-product to keep besides the memories.

      Nah, there’s no justifying it.

    Happy birthday to your blog! By the way, what is so wrong with the song and the video? I’m seriously missing the “hate” part – there is so much crap getting on the big screen, this one comes through as an okay job…

    I made your blog a birthday cake a month ago. I waited and waited for you to say something. Then I just ate it myself.

    Happy blog-a-versary!

    Happy (belated) Blog-a-versary to you, Sir! My name is, Sarah, and I’m a regular reader of the Hedonist… mostly because it has “Hedonist” in the title, but second mostly because I like that you write about… whatever trips your trigger at the moment. I like random.

    Happy happy to you! I hope you celebrated by partyin’, partyin’ (yeah) and getting down on Friday.

      Haha, thanks! The blog had a good time celebrating, but only after the age-old debate of sitting in the front seat vs kicking in the back seat. Had to make it’s mind up which seat it should take…
