For the Vince Vaughn Fanboys

Some may freely admit it. Some may do it grudgingly. Some may deny it. But my guess is that 99% of this site's regular visitors harbor the same fantasies about Vince Vaughn that Seth Rogen did in Knocked Up (which, as an aside, is the best movie ever made on the subject knocked upidness):

Ben: "That's awesome. Do you know Vince Vaughn? Have you ever met him?"
Alison: "No."
Ben: "I really feel like we'd get along well. I just-- He seems like a fun guy I feel like we'd hang together well."
Alison: "Mmm-hmm."
Ben: "I feel like he'd like me. You know, I'm sure a lot of guys are like, 'Oh, I'd like to hang out with that celeb', but I really think he would want to hang out with me, is like the cool thing."
Alison: "I'm sure he would. Yeah."

So up for disection is Vince Vaughn's iTunes celebrity playlist:
  • Bang A Gong (Get It On)-T. Rex
  • Honkey Tonk Man-Dwight Yoakum
  • Streets of Bakersfield-Dwight Yoakum and Buck Owens
  • Viva Las Vegas-Elvis Presley
  • (Ghost) Riders in the Sky -Johnny Cash
  • Okie From Muskogee-Merle Haggard
  • Get Rhythm-Johnny Cash
  • Honky Tonkin'-Hank Williams
  • Georgia On My Mind-Willie Nelson
  • I Said (Paridise Reprise)-Dwight Yoakum
  • Promised Land-Chuck Berry
  • Mama Tried-Merle Haggard
  • On the Road Again-Willie Nelson

I couldn't figure out how to copy and paste his actual comments on each song but I think you can click here if you're interested.

Fuck you, Lou Grant.

"You got spunk. I HATE Spunk!"

There isn't one song on that playlist that suprises me. I'm a little disapointed that "Kentucky Rain" by Elvis didn't make his playlist, and I figured he liked "Jeepster" by T/Rex instead of Bang a Gong. But when you ride shotgun with Vince Vaughn, every song is money baby.

I love vince vaughn, unfortunatly I see this thing ending much the way of Belushi. Dudes like 160, 170 in Swingers, I bet the guys pushing 250 now and putting down some serious powder.

In fact, I am calling my shot, Vince Vaughn is in MY deathpool for 2008...

I don't think you get fat from powder. I'm seeing him drinking a lot of booze and smoking weed. No way he's dead in a year (as long as he keeps his distance from Owen Wilson).

No surprises on the list DL? Not even a mild one?

I didnt get fat from snorting coke, I got fat from eating 6 turkey legs in a sitting,,then I snorted coke and then I called the prostitutes.

Not a one -- I think I read somewhere those were the songs they played on that bus for his new little movie. Anyhow, regarding Vince Vaughn: Seems like the type of guy you would LOVE to go to a good old seedy loung with. He'd tell the scraggly waittress, "Let's do shots. A LOT of shots!"

As much as it pains me to say it, we might be looking at one of my little guilty pleasures, Kirsten Dunst, as a dead pool candidate.
