When Expectations Don’t Match Reality

In Personal on August 4, 2011 at 7:34 pm

I have been fantasizing about him since I was in 2nd Year High School. I know he is tall but I never thought he’d be that tall. Blame it on the almost skinny jeans or distance from the stage but I am very much disturbed about Brandon Boyd’s long legs. It was a good thing the projector focused mainly on mid-shots and close-ups. Forgive me but I imagine Vice Ganda every time I look at Brandon Boyd’s long legs.

I have this friend who didnt’ like them when they had a stylist, I thought it was real shallow of him to judge the band based on their awakened sense of fashion but now, I see my friends point. Brandon Boyd would have been hotter if dressed up like the bassist, plain white tees, denim pants and good ol’ sneakers.

But who cares about how they look like, I love their old songs. I grew up listening to them. I love the way he writes. And somehow, I’ll keep on fantasizing about the dread-locked surfer dude from Van Nuys, CA  and not the long-legged creature that I saw perform last July 28 at Araneta.

Incubus is Incubus and Brandon Boyd is Brandon Boyd! =)

In Brandon’s Room

Picture this:

Brandon Boyd singing this song to you and only you.

This party is old and uninviting
Participants all in black and white
You enter in fullblown technicolor
Nothing is the same after tonight

If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn’t change a thing
Now that you’re here

Yeah, love is a verb here in my room
Here in my room, here in my room

You enter and close the door behind you
Now show me the world as seen from the stars
If only the lights would dim a little
I’m weary about eyes upon my scars

Pink tractor beam into your incision
Head spinning as free as dervishs’ whirl
I came here expecting next to nothing
So thank you for being that kind of girl
That kind of girl

A sexy song from a sexy singer. Die-hard music fans may think of this as shallow or something like that but I just can’t help it. I find him so hot and I won’t even deny it.

Physically, he looks very attractive. It does not matter whether he’s sporting short curly waves or  long dread locks. He still looks sexy. He surfs, he paints, he writes poems, he’s an activist and he loves his Mother. Yes, I knew all that from way back then. I was in 2nd year high school when I first heard their SCIENCE album. I fell in love with his lyrics. When I saw how he looked like, I fell in love with his looks. Thus our fan-girl mode over Brandon Boyd started. Jonjee likes him too. Heck, she likes him more than I do.

Last week, Oviation Production announced about Incubus coming to the Philippines. This is the third time that they are coming to the Philippines and if all goes well, this will be my first time to see the band perform live.

Some friends asked, “What if they play new songs?”. Who cares about that? I mean, I would want to sing along to each and every old song from their old albums. If they play old songs, fine. If they don’t, fine.

It’s THE Incubus and THE Brandon Boyd. Considering the fact that I still have 2 months or so to save up for the concert, it would be a sin to let this chance of seeing him perform live pass. And that’s the kind of sin that I don’t want to make.
