Exactly one year ago last night I shot this video of My Morning Jacket in an amphitheater on the edge of the Everglades. I, who have seen live the likes of Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and of course, Michael Einziger, am here to tell you that Carl Broemel’s guitar solo in this video is the one and only thing that has ever moved me to tears at a concert. It’s fitting I should be remembering it now, since I’ve been doing pretty much nothing but crying for the past week or so, trying to get over that guy I’ve been boring you to death with lately. The one that reminds me so much of Jim James. Can someone please tell me how I’m supposed to resist such a great big hunk of auburn awesomeness?
even though i don't know what you look like, i can picture you with Jim Carrey. Cause you seem like the type to love a great sense of humor :)
Haha, if you knew what I look like, you’d probably pair me off with this guy. I don’t know much about his sense of humor, but I have a feeling we’d understand each other. I actually met him once, and he gave me a hug. He’s absolutely adorable, and very, very sweet. He’s a guitarist, though, and I’ve already been married to one of those. In other words, been there, done that, although for this one I’d totally make an exception. Alas, he’s spoken for, not surprisingly by someone a lot younger, prettier, and more talented than I. Guitarists can do that, especially when they’re this cute.
okay, this is pretty hard because John Frusciante and Mike Einziger are the best guitarists and it's so hard to choose!
Too true, but unless you’re in one of these hard-core guitarist circles, I think John Frusciante is a lot more well known than Mike Einziger. So I’m thinking we should vote for Mike just to shake things up a bit. Plus, I understand that he really really really wants to win!
Hold the phone, Incufans! It looks like we’ve still got some voting to do. Get busy!
Wait, did I just say “Guitar King of the Universe?”
“Multiverse” - yes! I should have said “multiverse!”
All hail our darling Mikey, awesome yet benevolent Guitar King of the Universe!!!!! ♥
Hi love, it's great how mike tweeted back at you! Let's all support him! :)
The best thing about it has been hearing from other fans like you. Oh, look - it’s 10:49 p.m. - time for another vote! ♥
Mike Einziger tweeted you?! Wooo! How awesome! and he's so sweet.
Yes, he is, and could he possibly be cuter? It’s adorable how much he wants to win this contest. I tweeted him back and told him he’s my #GuitarKing no matter what the outcome. Meanwhile, let’s vote again! ♥
for Mike Einziger. Right now.
Can we make today Beautiful Guitarist Day? Just because?
Right back at ya, sweetie! Happy birthday.
