I wish I could post pics, but copyright and all that... If you don't know what Timothy Olyphant looks like you're missing out. Here's a Facebook fan page I belong to if you want a glimpse of sexy personified: https://www.facebook.com/groups/olyphantlas2/permalink/647423181978529/
But, recently, my affections for Tim/Raylan have strayed a little bit.
A little bit???
Try a 180 spin.
I am in
I know! Right?!!!
American badass. A rebel without a cause. A dirty white boy ... http://www.kidrock.com/
He couldn't be further from what usually attracts me. Long hair. Goatee. He likes strippers and porn stars. He says fuck a lot in his songs. My absolute favorite is Run Off To LA and these lines:
"we can be friends like you talked about, but first, give me back the pearls and the keys to my fuckin' house..."
and this one really touches me..."you get what you put in, and people get what they deserve."
and White Boy-Black Chick
you can look those lyrics up yourself...they're raw.
A long ways from my usual country music! LOL
But that boy opens his mouth and I just melt. Into a puddle. I'm like a 7th grader all over again. I listen to his music, I look up his dating history on the internet and I talk about him all day long with all my friends. The other day on Facebook, a few friends had quite the fantasy going all about where we'd take him and what we'd do to him when we got him there. Let's just say we're not romance writers for nothing! LOL
Friends IM me and tell me I'm not alone. They'd do him in a Detroit minute.
So...what is it about this man that's making me so ... squirmy?
The dirty lyrics?
But it's more than that. It's just this thing...this unexplainable sex appeal the man has ... for me ... and about forty billion other women!
So, what does all this have to do with us, as writers?
Thank you, Kid Rock, for reminding me that we have to figure out a way to bring that wanting, that longing and that I just wanna fuck you feeling you to our characters ... because THAT unexplainable attraction is where romance begins....!
