The "Ab" Song

Wednesday, August 2, 2006 6:48 AM

In case you missed it, Trisha posted about the “Ass Song” comment on her blog, and explained that while she was bumping and grinding on some Dragon Bar's dance floor, the guy performing (check his site out here) took notice and wrote a song about her ass...which she quickly flaunted all over GeeksWithBlogs. This got me thinking: would any of the rest of us gotten the same treatment? What if it was Chris Williams, or Brendon Schwartz, or Rob Zelt dancing on that floor...or me?

So, I did what any of you would have done with this question whirling in my head: I emailed the guy and asked him to write a song about me. Below is my email to him:

Dear Mr. Damgaard,

It has come to my attention that part of your songwriting process involves getting inspiration from people’s body parts, as per your song about “Her Ass” (referring to T. Lacey’s rump:

Although writing an entire song about a total stranger's ass may seem odd, Trisha challenged me that I was just jealous that no song had been written about me and my ass. Hence why I’m contacting you.

No, I don’t want a song about my ass. That would be too weird…and besides, I don’t want to seem like a copy-cat of Ms. Lacey. However, I have been commented often on my one abdominal muscle (the old “why have a 6 pack when you could have the entire keg?” thing). Therefore I request…nay, DEMAND…that you write a song about my great abdominal muscle, which would show geeks everywhere that you don’t have to be female, attractive, and flirtatious to get a song written about you (you just need to be attractive, ballsy, and a little nuts).

I feel the best option for viewing my great ab is when dressed as my alter ego, the Mexican wrestler “The Mad Mexican” (as if this email wasn’t weird enough eh?). You can find media to get inspiration for the song on my website: www.madmexican.net

Thank you for your time Scott and for being a good sport. I look forward to hearing you sing about my ab.

D’Arcy L.

I'll let you know what his response is.

Rock on - and if he doesn't write that song he is *obviously* just discriminating against male bodies!! A cunning trap you've set, D'Arcy... 8/2/2006 9:21 AM | Justice~!

Ok, this is so funny that I actually cried about it. I hope you get your song! :) 8/2/2006 12:12 PM | Trisha Lacey

You think you've lost your love,
Well I saw it yesterday-ay.
A great big can of Bud,
For you to put away-ay.

You've got a 1 pack,
And you know that can't be bad.
You've got a 1 pack,
And a Mexican Wrestling mask, ooooo 8/2/2006 1:39 PM | Rob Windsor

Maybe you should have asked him to write about your balls, since obviously they must be bigger than your "ab."

I have a newfound respect for you Mad Mexican. 8/3/2006 3:10 AM | Blogus Maximus
