Groves and Harper

Sounds like a Law firm or something huh? Anywho, got to spend a little time with Shaun and Brody this weekend and good times were had.

One thing that we discussed was how meeting people that you met first in the blogosphere is always a bit strange. Your imagination always has a different idea of the person than what exists in reality. I had met Shaun before blogging so it wasn't so weird. And amazingly, Brody was pretty much just like what I had imagined (eccentric with a French accent, eyes darting to and fro as if looking for a spy) so the awkwardness, if there was any, was brief.

The first conversation I had with Shaun was a few years ago while I was on the toilet at my church. He had just sung a small set and I was sneaking out after playing the worship set. We said hello as we entered the bathroom. Well, long story short, I was assuming the normal posture one assumes when... ahem. And Shaun just kept pelting me with questions from the other side of the stall as he washed his hands. I really couldn't do the questions justice because I was busy trying not to make the sounds one makes when in the aforementioned posture. In short, I really just wanted him to hit the road so I could get down to business. In hindsight, I should have just let the symphony play but I usually don't let people have the real me till after they have met my wife and they know that I must be somewhat normal for her to marry me.

Shaun and Brody make a terrific duo and it is apparent that they have a good time at what they do. And Dangit if that guy can write some tunes. The best part about these two fellows is that they are sold-out family men and completely down to earth. I could tell you more of what happened while they were in Sugarland but it might get them arrested.

I hear Shaun and Brody are largely responsible for global warming. Word on the street is that they are worse for the environment than carbon emissions and cow farts combined. Care to confirm this rumor?

We had a similar experience at pappasito's although it was slightly more awkward (as we were hoping for more people as well to break it all up) - but they are good guys.

Groves and Harper - Nashville cops, partners against crime.

Seth Ward said...

Cach, I have heard that as well. I did see Shaun and Brody burning a small ham and singing some strange chant towards the eastern sky before the concert. There was thunder but no clouds...

Discontented, Welcome! Yeah we couldn't make that dinner because of a previous engagement. Thanks for joining.

Fancypants, Nashvill cops...

Somehow I just imagine these cops with hair gel and cop outfits designed by the buckle.

Seriously, I don't remember EVER talking to ANYONE about ANYTHING for ANY reason while they pooped. EVER.

Hi, I'm Seth. I married out of my league, I'm a Catholic hippie in Baptist yuppie clothing and I make stuff up.

And I shop at Old Navy and Target, not the Buckle. Ok, once I did. But I really really needed jeans that already holes in them. Nothing says I don't care about my appearance like $100 jeans with holes in them.

"Hi, I'm Seth. I married out of my league, I'm a Catholic hippie in Baptist yuppie clothing and I make stuff up"

Have you been talking to my dad? I might just put that in my bio although the yuppie part makes me a bit uncomfortable.

However, what the heck is wrong with Target or Old Navy ya big retro preppy? And how did YOU know my shirt was from Target? Huh? HUH? (you can't get True Religion Jeans at Buckle btw)

Hi I'm Shaun, I frosted my hair to look older and wiser. The buckle where I live is all out of jeans with holes. I filed a complaint.

With all due respect to Shaun, I think that "Harper and Groves" has a much better ring to it. More sophisticated, more upscale.

I know that the big cheese in the law firm usually gets first billing, but hey.

Seth Ward said...

I thought about that as well. However it is apparent that Harper is in fact the "big cheese" in their operations.

Brody Harper said...

Seth.

I assume calling me the "big cheese" here, as well as calling me a GIRL on my own blog post about mowing are both compliments coming from the guy who admittedly enjoys Dancing With The Stars. I'm just saying.

Seth Ward said...

I never said I ENJOYED Prancing with the Hasbeens, I just said that breakdancing and beboxing is waaaay cooler. So there.

Discontented Refuge said...

Seth, I'd love to meet you sometime, maybe we can swap pedal setups for acoustics or somethin. :)

Discontented Refuge said...

I see Brandon did you web design, way cool. He did our original album art on our first CD. Small world.

Seth Ward said...

Hey discontented, sorry haven't checked down here in a while. Love to meet up sometime.

Let me know if you check back here.
