Every Friday some of my future co-workers at Barstool Sports put out a "Taking You Into the Weekend with [insert video here]" blog to put a nice capper on the week.
After some definitely not bad news earlier this week, there's a chance (in the same way that the NFC East winner has a chance at winning the Super Bowl this season) #HireDozo finally becomes #HireDdozo. I figured in preparation for my call to the blogging big leagues, I might as well get some hacks in to improve my filler blog game. Dozo's gotta show he can help generate ad rev!!
Perhaps, I'll bang out something a little more substantial later tonight (I've got a 30% finished NFL history blog in the drafts). But for now, after an exhausting and emotionally draining few days/months I need to relax, celebrate the House passing the MORE Act (that'll collect dust on Moscow Mitch's desk) and check out the new Heavens Gate docuseries on HBOMax (until I get too freaked out and watch all of season four of Big Mouth; which debuted today).
As for taking you into the weekend, I went down a BBC Live Lounge rabbit hole the other night and came across one of my favorite cross-genre performances ever; Usher bass slappin' cover of Foster The People's "Pumped Up Kicks" from June of 2012. I've been thinking about doing a Top 10 best Live Lounge cross-genre covers blog, but it's too hard to narrow it down. Maybe I'll just do a Top 93 and turn it into #Dozzfeed? Either way, I really just needed an excuse to share this eight year old performance, so to the three people who will read this blog, have a great weekend and enjoy!
Usher is one of the most talented performers of the last quarter century, but I bet you didn't know he can slap the bass. Why would you? Outside of this performance and the 2014 VMAs where have you ever seen it? I know this was the first time I ever saw Usher playing bass. When you're one of the best dancers of all time you don't need a bass literally getting in the way of your superior talents. Why lug that thing around when you can turn women into waterfalls with your moves? As someone who can't even clap in rhythm, I'm super jealous of anybody who can dance. Deep down it's probably why I hate TikTok so much. I think I'm legally required to include this clip because I know you're thinking it.
