#6. Because they smoke weed with some of our other favorite people.
#7. Because this should be obnoxious, but somehow, it’s not, probably due to the bandana.
#8. Because they make an excellent argument for marriage equality.
#9. Because they know how to pick effective baby making music (and love Tom Waits).
Do you have a soundtrack for getting down with your lady?
My ultimate soundtrack for lovemaking is Peter Gabriel’s Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ.
That’s certainly an unusual choice.
Well, if you listen to it—and it depends on your personal timing and cycles of climax but it has some very languid, you know, drawn-out tracks for foreplay, culminating in some blood-curdling screams with driving tribal drums [giggles]. Megan and I share taste in music, and we consider musicians like Tom Waits and Randy Newman and Patty Griffin to be the most romantic musicians. Not necessarily the most beautiful music, but, for our money, the most romantic because it’s authentic and from real life experience. When I first got turned on to Tom Waits, I was trying to get my dad to come around, and I played him one of Tom’s most moving songs, his cover of “Somewhere” from West Side Story. My dad said, It’s a pretty song, but the guy sounds like he’s being run over by a dump truck. And I said, “Well, that’s the point, Dad.” This guy whose voice evokes having been through a lot of shit is singing that there is even a place and time for him.
#10. Because it takes a special kind of woman to fall for a man in a Beer Nuts shirt and American flag shorts.
#11. Because he loves her just the way she is, lack of imperfections and all.
I have not had any plastic surgery done. Nothing at all. And he is very much opposed to it. He tells me every day that I’m beautiful and sexy which is very nice. But one time I was depressed. Just like having some kind of moment of something. And we’re in the bathroom together, and I said, “You know, maybe I will have a little something done,” and he has always said if I had anything done he would divorce me, and he said, “If you have something done I really will divorce you because that would mean you’re not the person I always thought you were.”
#12. Because, in case the Riskay cover didn’t convince you, they’re excellent singers.
#13. Because they must have the best dirty talk.
#14. Because I hate everything (Beyoncé? MEH), and love this.
