I’m writing this entry in response to Scott and Travis’ (guitarist and drummer in Sugarland) displeasure of not being fixtures in my online journaling. We were sitting in the dressing room last night when Scott turned to me and said, “I’ve noticed that my presence is suspiciously lacking in your online journals. What do I have to do to impress you?” Then Travis chimed in, “Yeah, you always talk about Brandon. What about us?”
Well fellas, this one’s for you.
But first I need to discuss this very disturbing water bottle I drank out of at a casino in Atlantic City. Check it out:
That’s right. It’s a bottle of Donald Trump brand “Trump Ice” Natural Spring Water. I find this to be rather devastating. It’s just wrong all around. First of all, bottles of water usually have a picture of a refreshing spring, waterfall, or other thirst-inspiring graphic. Here we have a picture of Donald Trump. Thirsty yet? Even worse is the brief description of this water on the back of the bottle:
“Our Spring water is one of the highest quality spring waters
bottled in the world with an optimal mineral content.
It is bottled in a modern facility and continually tested to ensure
quality. Enjoy a refreshing drink of our natural spring water
and you’ll agree… The Difference is Clear.”
Hmmm…. Bottled in a modern facility? Like the Don’s bathroom? And what spring did this water spring from? A spring in Hell from the looks of this picture. And Donald Trump is the evil overlord. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a more nebulous and suspicious description of bottled water in my life. Oh well, I drank it anyway.
Ok, let’s get back to Scott and Travis. These guys are awesome. Scott is our musical director, long-time friend of Jennifer’s, has an amazing head of hair and a razor sharp wit.
I’m very lucky to have this picture. That’s all I’ll say about that.
Then there’s Travis. Another stellar gentleman who hails from my hometown of New Orleans, is a member of the awesome pop/rock outfit Better Than Ezra, has a hilariously corny sense of humor, and is the best dressed man on this tour.
Check it out:
Yep. That just happened.
It’s only fair that these guys get a shout-out since apparently they’ve been reading my journal and Brandon had no idea that I’d been hard at work putting detailed descriptions of his and my arguments up on the ‘net. Sucker…
So basically I just wanted to take some time and talk about what awesome guys I get to play music with on a daily basis and to show you that sick water bottle. I hope I’ve appeased Scotchlar and T-Mac (as I call them) with this entry. You guys rule! Thanks for reading…
