Errr ummm ...I just don't know what to say. Wrong, wrong, so wrong. {and sad, weird, awful, oh and wrong ;) lol}

Alicia said...

oh man....i bet he had a rough childhood....and apparently adulthood too.

E said...

Aw, that's sad, but I bet it builds character.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I hope that was just a bad part on the agent instead of his parents. Bad picture too. from this first impression...i'll totally pass on his music. yeesh.

Just Another Momma said...

ooo, now that's a rough one to grow up with.

bananas. said...

hey at least he made a name for himself...hahahaha. what a reatard!!!

5thsister said...

I'll give you a good one: true story. When I worked home care I had an infant patient whose name was, get this: Tissua Kleenexia. I kid you not. Sad.

April said...

Yucky album cover. The name is less off-putting than the weird guy in a bath tub full of pictures of shaggy men with boobs.

Diane said...

i'm appalled at the size of those man boobs more so than his name :( ick.

wool and misc said...

that's not his real name. he was in a band called the reatards. his real last name is lindsay.

Down and Out Chic said...

he's not doing much to help himself there with an album cover like that! and regardless of whether or not that's his real name, it's still an unfortunate decision :)

Caroline said...

He is a retard...who sits in the tub covered with album covers?

~KS said...

Hmmmm.... that sucks.

I went to high school with a kid named Kyle Buttz. You know, if I was a parent, or more so, if I was Mr. Buttz, I would just have my name legally changed before I brought a baby Buttz into the world to be ridiculed and harassed every day of his life. Just sayin...

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

wowwwwwwwwwww

Brooke said...

Hahahahahahaha...I wonder if he has any little Reatards...

Elizabeth Marie said...

Can we also talk about "Matador"????

ew

Sher said...

So how do you live up to a name like that? I blame his father lol!

...love Maegan said...

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

The Haute-Shopper said...

He kinda looks the part though.... which begs the question: did the name make him that way or was he born into the name for a reason.... hmmm....

Clorivak said...

AWESOME musician...Relax people, its just his stage-name...lol. His real name is Jimmy Lee Lindsey and he used to be in a band called the Reatards. I love his tunes!!

Clorivak said...

Oh and I'll give you an unfortunate name...hehe I SWEAR to GOD I had a Teacher her first name was PIX, and last name was BUTT. Mrs. Pix Butt. :s

diane said...

The guy must have been tripping when he came up with that idea for a photo. It's a good thing he's talented, because visually, meh.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Oh good grief. That is so sad. I had a client once named Dick Swatt.

Michelle said...

Oh my gosh! That picture just doesn't help things at all, either.

Kris said...

I really love you header picture of the kitty. Looks just like my cat! Beautiful!

Brown Girl said...

At least we all know how to pronounce it. Glass half full kinda gal right here. ;)

Savvy Gal said...

LOL. i would change my name.

Karls said...

Could be an accent on the Rea? As in Rar-tard? Perhaps not!

Karls said...

On another note... in all seriousness - my sister in law's (gorgeous girl) Dad is called Mike Och. Dead set!

Annie said...

ha, he is icky!

Simply Mel said...

is it really bad that I'm laughing right now?

Char said...

wonder if he had it legally done or he was just lucky

lancelonie said...

To his advantage, it's catchy - some name that people MIGHT remember...

Now, it's kinda ringin' in my head. LOL!

anotherfishinthesea said...

odd. thats all i can say.

sherri said...

LOVE him. Grace at Woolgathering turned me on to him via mixed cd last year and I dig him so. the matador singles?! must get this. love the cover.

sherri said...

em - "matador" is a record label.

sherri said...

and not sure if you are as old as dirt as i so i'll further clarify -singles are 45 rpm records. now I'll shut up.

adrienzgirl said...

That's an unfortunate face, forget about the name!

so Spiffy April Marie Girl Japan said...

You know he was teased.... in school.

Keith said...

Definitely glad I don't have that name.

Chessa! said...

oy.

Phoenix said...

Ugh, what if that's his stage name? What if he changed his name TO Reatard? And then spelled it wrong to be ironic?

...nah. I think I'm giving this guy way too much credit here.

Asylum Dolly said...

hehehhe. Laughing at "5thsisters "comment! Just WOW.
Damn. "Wool and misc" just killed the magic for me. Then Clorivak confirmed it, but added a laugh. Pix Butt? hehehehehe :D

Ela said...

I'm sure it's got a fancy pronounciation....

Oh and btw, are you interested in receiving high yields? Wtheck??? Delete that garbagio...it's fancy for garbage :)

Kristin said...

I think I would have made use of a stage name...unless...that IS his stage name in which case he had some really bad advice. Ah ha ha

Diane said...

Haha, I don't know if somebody's commented on this yet, but his real last name is Lindsey; it's just a stage name as he was in a band called The Reatards.

Also, he makes damn good music. I was supposed to see him play a couple of months ago but dude cancelled because his band quit on him.

kys said...

He looks like my ex-roommate's ex-husband. We (lovingly) referred to him as Meatloaf.

Diana said...

Oh...no....poor guy...

Sam said...

Deary me. Unfortunate everything I'd say.

low carb bread said...

Oh God, poor guy! I hope it wasn't too hard for him when e was a child. Why doesn't he change it?
