Conversations with The Feath: Taking That WalkPosted: June 21, 2010
INT. — NIGHT — JON’S PARENTS’ HOUSE
Jon and The Feath are at the kitchen table with papers strewn all about. Their wedding is a week away and there are still many things to do for what they hope will be a special weekend for all involved.
Having battled over the guest list and the seating chart, the pair have turned their attention to the reception music. Music holds a very special place in their hearts. It was music that brought them together in the first place.
Unlike the other phases of planning, the music selection process is going fairly well. All the dances have, for the most part, been accounted for. Now, their brains are racked in pursuit of an entrance song.
Jon makes the following suggestion
The Feath: I mean, it’s alright. It’s just–
Jon: That’s the smooth shit! I wanna come out to something kinda slick but, you know, endearing.
The Feath: Uh, I mean I like the song, but I’m not sure it’s a wedding song, ya know?
The song begins to wind down, a winding down that includes Bootsy speaking in the end, imploring the woman in question to believe that he’s sincere, sincere in a way only Bootsy Collins knows how.
The Feath: …Did he just say “you can see me coming, coming all over you”?
Jon: Yeah, but we can fade that part out.
The Feath gives Jon a blank stare from across the table.
Jon: So…how about Willie Hutch?
