p.s...

I had to add this in to my last post. I can't believe I forgot about it. Maybe because I'm still too shocked.

My father, 73 years old, just found the wonderfulness that is an ipod. He spends HOURS looking for and downloading songs. He's very much into think like Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, The Eagles, etc.

So today, he's going over his music to find songs he wants to put in an absolute "favorites" playlist. He's going through song by song, playing the first 5-7 seconds, checkmarking the ones he wants.

As one song starts to play, I immediately turn to him my best WTF look.

Dad: "You know that girl who Chris Brown beat up? I love her music!"
~ Rihanna playing ~
Me: can't talk. dumbfounded.
Dad: "I've been listening to her a lot!"
Me: Rihanna?
Dad: "Yes. This song, 'unfaithful', is my favorite"

I don't know what is more disturbing. That my 73 year old father listens to Rihanna. Or that he explains who she is by "that girl Chris Brown beat up". Or that I knew who was singing when I heard it playing.

I ~LOVE~ this!
Did you have to show your dad how to work it? Just asking because as smart as my own dad is- he can't figure out a digital camera or how to text message without assistance! He's 57, so your dad definitely has him beat technology-wise!

That is seriously hilarious!! I can't believe he likes hip hop!

My grandpa had a Celine Dion CD on his cd player the other day. Maybe I should get him an ipod!

Haha--that's hilarious! I think it's funny that he's hip enough to have actually heard about the Chris Brown/Rihanna thing. Your dad is awesome!

One of the cool things about getting older is that you care less about what other people think about your likes and dislikes and you can just enjoy what you enjoy.
I love that your dad is loving his ipod.

Too funny!

I'll never forget the time my Dad asked me if I heard Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson got married. I didn't even know what to say.

LOL. Has your dad been reading Perez Hilton?

That's really funny. It just goes to show how we are constantly seeing what's happening in Hollywood. You can't help but know what's going on...
