I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but when I’m bored doing work, I tend to spend a lot of time and money on iTunes. I was just suckered into buying like 300 Joshua Radin songs. I really, really love him. If you haven’t heard the song “The Fear You Won’t Fall,” you should probably find it and buy it right now. There’s not a good video of it online, and I refuse to not do it justice.
As a part of my Joshua binge, I Wikipedia-ed him and discovered that he and Zach Braff are good friends. Apparently Zach is kind of the reason he’s famous, because he got one of his songs to be on Scrubs. Isn’t that adorable? Sort of a Ben Affleck/Matt Damon-type story. Here’s a little photo of Joshua:
Another fun and adorable fact is that Joshua Radin played his song “Today” at Ellen and Portia de Rossi’s wedding. Apparently they turned down George Michael and Justine Timberlake and chose Joshua instead. Not to knock Joshua, but I don’t feel like that’s much of a competition when we’re talking about a wedding. “SexyBack” is not really my dream wedding song.
While I’m rambling, how much do you love Ellen? She is GREAT. I love how unabashedly awkward she is. The other day I was doing my laundry and watching her show, and I was literally glued to the television while holding my laundry basket because she was doing a skit where she went out with Paris Hilton and it was just HI-larious. Anyway.
So Joshua Radin. Love him. Here’s the newest song I’m playing on repeat. And the video was directed by Zach Braff:
Also, THE ELECTION IS TWO DAYS AWAY HOLY SHIIIIIIIT!!!
