I Love Some Other Johns

I do not love John McCain. Elliot and I were at the county’s Obama campaign HQ and he was wearing his Obama t-shirt. He told one of the women there that it “has Rock-a-bama’s name on the back. And we don’t like John McCain.” Phew, good thing he cleared that up. Not that I’ve been fervent. I really haven’t. He just knows that we like Obama and we don’t like McCain.

I love me some 80s music. You know who else has great taste in music? John Cusack. I mean, look at High Fidelity. He and his screenwriting partners listened to over 20,000 songs to come up with the few songs used in the movie. Have you read the book? It’s good. I’ve enjoyed all of Nick Hornby‘s books that I’ve read. Maybe after today I’ll be able to read again.


I loved him in Say Anything. If you didn’t we might need to sever ties; please use the comment form below to try to defend the error of your ways. Did you know that Christian Slater auditioned for the role of Lloyd Dobbler. Could you imagine? Although, I do like him in My Own Worst Enemy. I loved him in normal teen-angst fashion in Pump Up the Volume. Less so in the movie about having the monkey heart.

I also love John Travolta.

I think if John Cusack and John Travolta were in a movie together it would be my all-time favorite, beating out Face/Off. If you don’t like Face/Off please use the comment form below to defend yourself.

Did you know John Cusack is also a brilliant politcal blogger? Ha! You thought this whole post was a ramble to fill up the days for NaBloPoMo, didn’t you? But no. I did a switcheroo here at the end. It’s really about the election! Psych! He blogs at Huffington Post, most recently No Currency Left to Buy the Big Lies.

Senator McCain, Governor Palin and assorted surrogates are delusional and breathtakingly corrupt. They disgrace themselves and their country as they lie, smear, slur and write it off as political manner.

Handsome, good taste in music, thinker – maybe I could marry him. Yes, I know he’s already married to Bossy. Whatever. Yahoo said he might be a swinger. And I defined that however I needed to fit in my fantasy. You can define swinger in the comment form below if you feel I *really* missed the mark.

Go vote now. Unless you already have, in which case head to Starbucks, Krispy Kreme or Ben & Jerry’s for your free stuff. I think to be legal and stuff they can’t actually give to only those that have voted, but whatever. You’re voting so it’s moot.

Polls start closing in twelve hours.

    I love John Cusack, too. One of my all time faves. But can I be neutral on Face/Off? Thanks…

    I’m not sure I can bear to watch tonight. I may have to have a Guitar Hero marathon or something…

    My favorite part of Face Off is in the beginning, when Nicolas Cage steps out of the limo and he’s got that jacket on that blows in the wind.

    Have fun volunteering!
