Little Known Facts

Occasionally, I like to use this space to reveal little known facts about my husband. Today is one of those occasions.
My husband loves Meat Loaf. I’m not just talking about the actual loaf of meat that your mom used to make; I’m referring to the, ahem, entertainer. You know the guy, right? Paradise By The Dash Board Lights? Bat Out Of Hell? Yeah, that’s him. Kevin loves him soooo much, in fact, that he knows the words to every Meat Loaf (and this pains me) rock opera ever written. Bear in mind that I had never even heard of Meat Loaf prior to the release of Leap Of Faith.
I know that this has no relevance to anything whatsoever, but it’s fun every once in a while to tell his little secrets! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I had a 1 billion word comment written – the computer ate it. Damn. Maybe I’ll retype it later. I don’t know if I can be that smart twice. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. John Says:

    My sister goes beyond the Meat Loaf obsession and has a thing for all things Jim Steinman. He’s the guy who wrote most of ML’s songs, as well as some others. I can’t tell which is worse…

  3. Brian Says:

    Heh, I used to work with a guy who brought his little CD player to work so he could listen to his CDs during the day. His collection seemed to only include: 1) Meatloaf, 2) The Princess Bride soundtrack, and 3) The Conan movie score. I’ve heard enough of those three for a few lifetimes. (Although, I did like Meatloaf in Fight Club. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well… Meat Loaf *is* a Texan. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Kevin Says:

    Great point, Kim. He’s actually from Fort Worth. Brian also makes a great point that Meatloaf was exceptional as “Bob, the guy with bitch tits” in Fight Club.

    For the record, I like some Meatloaf songs. I’ve never been to a concert. I’ve never bought a cd. I would if there was a cd that only had the songs I liked on it, but –so far– such a cd does not exist for Meatloaf.

    Perhaps…and this is just a hypothesis…but perhaps, the reason Merrin doesn’t know the words to Paradise by the Dashboard Lights is because she was too busy living out the lyrics in high school. Hmmm?

    I don’t even know what to say. I thought with the dress and all…. I don’t even know who you are.
