Gwen Stefani is John Denver’s Love Child
Karen and I went to Borders Books the other day so she could buy a present for her dad. While we were there I picked up Gwen Stefani’s newest and a Best of John Denver CD that I’d been meaning to buy. Pretty random choices I know, but I’m really happy with both.
At work today I had the CD cases next to each other and happened to notice how bizarrely similar they are.
I love Gwen’s look here. I’m less interested in her art deco retro duds.
Please resist the urge to abuse me for buying a John Denver CD. I don’t know why, but I’ve always thought his music captured a really nice moment in country/folk music history. And though there were many years when he looked like Cousin Oliver from the Brady Bunch, I think he’s pretty cute here.
My mom and dad liked John Denver, too. They even went to a concert in Little Rock to see him when I was probaby seven. We asked them to bring us back something because we were fans. I got a little plaque with my name on it for my bedroom door (in case I forgot where my room was). My sister got a John Denver poster and some panties. I don’t think they were John Denver panties. I’m hoping my sister just needed some underwear and mom and dad happened to stop at Dillard’s on the way down or something. Otherwise, it seems kind of weird.
