Oh man…. This is an OLD version of this. Michael is playing with the slide! AHHH! yay! love it!
At about 3:08 when Michael starts soloing… Shit…. And Butch comes over to play on his shoulderblades… lol.
Gah, at 4:06 when Butch is just playing the melody… Love how that sounds on the Telecaster…. Oh honey…
What I really wanted to comment on, though, was that, even though this is from like, seven fucking years ago, and at least a year before this song was recorded, and since this, all of the band members have changed behind him, he still always finishes it the same…. Stepping away from the mic and singing, but making the audience sing it to him while he claps. And alone on stage.
I REALLY wish this video didn’t cut off.
This has always been my favorite part of the show. When they end with this song and he does this.
It’s just… You can’t miss it on his face and how he acts… How in love he is with these moments and how passionate he gets about what he’s doing and the people that he’s doing it with- his band, the audience, and of course, the bartenders (those of you who have seen him know what I’m talkin about! lol).
Anyway, what got cut off is usually the part of the show when he kneels on the edge of the stage and lets the audience sing to him and he’s got the biggest fucking grin on his face…
The second time I saw him was with this line-up, before the girls (Sofi & Lindsay aka Sofa & Loveseat) went on tour with them, and I was right in front (Lion and I got there WAY early and got to briefly meet him and talk to Randy and Darren for a bit), kind of between him and Michael, and he knelt down, grinning like a mad man, clapping and I could kind of hear him singing over all of us, and he had his head dropped as he was clapping and when he looked back up there was still this mad grin on his face but he had tears running down his cheeks.
That man is the most passionate musician to see live.
Even if you’re like, “Well, I don’t really like his music”, if you’re a music lover- not a musiclistener- go see him live sometime.
You won’t ever regret it.
I have more good memories from Butch Walker shows than almost any other single thing in my life. Almost. Maybe.
Sorry about this long ass rant, I just hadn’t ever seen this video before and it brought back allllllll that stuff when I did….
Nostalgic. I was 13 the first time I met him, hadn’t yet fallen in love with him, but by the time I met him again on my 15th birthday, I had. Probably because I saw him 8 times in between then.
I’m 22 now.
COME THE FUCK TO CHICAGO, BUTCH.
This should be done with a non-stop of at least 6 episodes at a time
Take a drink if:
-Vegemite is mentioned
-Santi is yelled or said creepily(two drinks if it’s NOT Mike)
-Something goes really wrong on tour and everyone is trying to not be upset or bitter
-The Butcher is drawing/painting
-Someone is shown eating
-Someone is slapping someone
-Sisky mentions Baby(who is a boy kitty! remember!) or Little Girl are mentioned
-Sisky is in a boat
-Someone has nightmares
-Mike’s in a tub
-The Butcher sings(two drinks if Michael Guy Chislett is playing guitar specifically for his singing)
-Chiz says “Um” or “Uh” and stutters or searches and then someone, probably Bill, cuts him off
-Tony hurts himself on camera
-Bill is overdramatic
-The pause button is used in an episode other than Season 2, Episode 12
-Bill cuddles Chiz
-Someone is talking about something serious to the camera and some of the other guys are fucking around in the background
-Chiz or someone else talks about his teeth being weird
Take a shot if:
-Guy Ripley is there
-Josh(guitar tech) harasses poor Chizzy
-The band loses somebody/somebody gets kidnapped
-Someone doesn’t understand something Chiz says(excluding Season 2, Episode 14. You would die.)
-Someone other than Sisky mentions Baby or Little Girl
-Bill does something “like a girl”
-The Butcher is wearing Bill’s shrunken sweater as a Head Thingy/scarf/any other type of garment
-Sisky comes into someone else’s conversation by repeating something they’ve said(“Birmingham”)
-Chiz or James pretend they understand something but don’t because of culture differences
-Jack the Camera Guy yells at one of the guys
-Sisky screams “Bilvy”
-Chiz or James are way more bundled up/upset about how cold somewhere is and nobody else seems near as cold
-BURN THE MERCH!
Chug the rest of your glass/solo cup/bottle/can if:
-The Butcher is actually wearing a shirt
-They say “Santi” to someone who has no fucking idea what that is and get a good reaction(vodka)
-Something large and noticeable is taken during a Neon Body Style presents Stealin Shit(such as a mattress)
-Disco Nap or Jengla
-“I’m gonna shake the shit outta you!”
-Someone “quits” TAITV
-Sisky drops a bowling ball on someone’s foot or talks about it, even if it’s his own….
Have fun TAI-Tubers!
We use recyclable programs, meaning they are in plastic sleeves and you don’t take them with you when you leave.
But, for those who want souvenirs, we give them paper ones they can take.
I told this woman that we recycle them so she needs to return the program back to the box at the end and… Well, let me just restate that I work here….
SHE FUCKING ARGUED WITH ME.
“No, that’s never been that way, you must be mistaken.”
Really? Because I fucking work here!
(My reaction could either be similar to the Butcher’s or MGC’s, take your pick)
Because Michael Guy Chislett is so used to Josh running up and fucking with him (tickling him, pinching him, pinning him to the couch and braiding his hair, scaring him, generally tormenting him) this is the face he makes when Josh runs up to hug him lol.
