I'd Take A Bullet For You (Well, Maybe Not You)

I was planning to actually do some kind of "month of metal" as far as music posts go, but then after talking about friends yesterday, Jesse sent me this song on Facebook, and I love it, I'd heard it before but it had been a while. It's country music at its finest. A song about having the kind of friend who you could call at four in the morning, who would sit at a waffle house with you while you sobered up, the kind of friend who would actually take a bullet for you, and me and Jesse are friends like that. The only problem she has with this song is that it's "brother to brother" lol. Anyway, enjoy, and I hope you have a friend like this too. They're the best.


On an interesting, but still related (for once) side point, taking a bullet for someone, or just general self sacrifice is the only way I want to die. Part of it is that I don't place much value on my own life, so who knows maybe when I come to love myself more this view will change. The view that I want to give my own life to extend someone elses. Another reason is because I hope Little Nicky is correct. He ended up in Heaven after sacrificing himself, and he was the son of Satan. Given my life so far, it could just be the only way I'll get into Heaven lol.

  1. The only way I don't want to die is quietly in my sleep. It's too boring, not an interesting way to go.

    Such as skateboarding into an active volcano.

  4. Self-sacrifice is a double-edged sword, really.
    You save the life of someone you love, sure, but you're also making that person suffer. S/he just lost someone he/she loved. Terrible feeling, so he/she suffers either way.

  5. @FangYeah but I'm a dick who would sacrifice the happiness of another for my own spot in Heaven, which is why I'll never get in. While I am kidding, what you said is true. There are people who go crazy because they wish it had been them to die. Things very rarely go like they do in the movies.

  12. Does anyone understand this Mr Jack House's comments? Or his blog for that matter. It seems like a random sentence generator to me.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Henry His comments quite possibly are. But this one kind of fits, so I thought why not take a lenient stance on spam.

  14. Yeah, House appears to be a unsophisticated spambot. Or maybe just a guy with interesting brain damage.
    anyways, go self-sacrifice! I'm not sure if I would actually have the balls to do it if I'm ever in such a situation.

  15. I want to go out painless while horrifically, to traumatize small children in viewing distance. I'm thinking a freak decapitation accident.

  16. Nice video. Had never heard of them before. D:

  17. @Shaw There are ways to hang yourself in such a way that your head comes off, but if you really want to go out painlessly while horrifically to traumatise children, I would suggest throwing yourself off a tall building while dressed as something a kid wouldn't want to see dead, like a superhero. Bonus points if you hit the kids parents.

  19. I've always loved that song! Everybody needs a few friends like that - you're lucky to have one.

  20. If I'm going out, I'm going out guns blazing baby! (okay, maybe not don't worry)

  21. Good that you changed your mind. No one likes metal. =/

  22. I wouldn't sacrifice myself. With that being said, if you want to do it, do it with style. Something that makes an impact, probably dressed as a dinosaur too, just for comedic purposes.

  23. Self-sacrifice: the moral that Western society upholds (think Christ in Christianity, which is the dominant force in the Western world). Yet, we uphold capitalism as well... Quite hypocritical, don't you think?

    Anyways, nice music.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @George Anderson Well, no, because very very few people are willing to be self-sacrificial, but I will agree capitalism sucks.

  25. I only heard this song about 2 or 3 times before and even though I liked it I never really found out the title of the song or the artist. Thanks for sharing.

  26. Did he talk about waffle house? What is it about the fucking South and that terrible restaurant chain?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I see my life the same way of you, I would prefer dying in self sacrifice to extend a loved one's life too.

  28. @Generally Disgruntled What is it with the north and their dislike of all things south? Didn't you guys already win? What could possibly be wrong with a house of waffles. Waffles are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Generally Disgruntled Note I'm defending waffles here really. It's been ages since I've had a waffle, real or potato :(

  30. The once noble south the produced the likes of William Faulkner, Mark Twain, and Tennessee Williams, among others, is a thing of the past. And yes, you still have rather prestigious universities operating in southern states, such as Vanderbilt, Texas, and Alabama, but the entire region has become this cultural wasteland post-World War Two and the rise of Conservative America. Sure, you still have such things as Southern Hospitality and so forth that still exist. The Reconstruction period post-American Civil War started it, and the 1950s finished it. Now, southern states are among the most uneducated and ignorant in the country. Complete rejection of any sense of dignity that the South used to have. Yes, contemporary Southern intellectuals still exist, and there are many Southern cities that are as cosmopolitan as any found in the north, but those are brutal minorities. Yes, I'm being stereotypical a little, because there are things about the South I like, but they have more problems than any other part of the country and they did it to themselves. And I will say that the last time I visited the south was for a road trip to Florida (America's wang) and I wore a Slayer t-shirt the entire drive and got the stink eye from every person at every stop we made because there was a giant pentagram on the front of it, but yeah. Aside from that wonderful little rant, Waffle House is synonymous with just being a really bad chain. They're like greasy spoon diners, but even more gross, and populated entirely by subhuman mutants. I still have nightmares about the Waffle House I ate in outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Ugh.

  31. @Generally Disgruntled You could have just left it at "Waffle House commit crimes against waffles". There are a lot of southern stereotypes though, all anyone thinks when they think of southern people is "Sister lovin, gun totin, bible wielding, white trash hicks who would rather shoot you in the face than say hello". But not every southerner is like that, I've talked to nice people from Tennessee. It's just that stereotypes prevail.
