Ron. Swanson.

  

Ron Swanson is a man of principle, a man of few words and a man of mustache.  Presented to you now are 2 of my favorite Ron Swanson moments.  Enjoy.

One of the best moments in television history. Ever. Period. For realz. I’m not even playing with you. Click this extra long link to watch it. Normally, I’d embed the video into this post but embedding was disabled so I had to make it a link. And, yes, I am aware that I made this entire paragraph a link. Where is it written that links have to be short? I made this one really long so you should have no trouble clicking on it.

Here’s the other one: (It’s embedded)

How long will I love you

This is my absolute favorite song right now.  I can’t get it out of my head.  Jon Boden, Sam Sweeney and Ben Coleman cover it on the About Time soundtrack and I heard it for the first time when I watched the movie.  Since then I can’t stop listening to it, singing it, playing it on the piano.  Here are the lyrics and a couple different versions of it, including the original by The Waterboys and one by Ellie Goulding.


How long will I love you?
As long as there are stars above you
And longer if I can

How long will I need you?
As long as the seasons need to
Follow their plan

How long will I be with you?
As long as the sea is bound to
Wash upon the sand

How long will I want you?
As long as you want me to
And longer by far

How long will I hold you?
As long as your father told you
As long as you are

How long will I give to you?
As long as I live through you
However long you say

How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you
And longer if I may

WHATEVER! IT’S 2009!

An oft-shared sentiment between my eldest daughter and myself, “Whatever! It’s 2009!” seems to capture, precisely, our thoughts and feelings on so much of life.  It’s a guttural, primitive cry of the human spirit.  It expresses in its very essence a disenchantment with our current urban society that we cannot express so succinctly ourselves.  It is a primordial, cathartic release.  And so, without further ado, I give you “Whatever! It’s 2009!”
