“ROAD TO NOWHERE” by TALKING HEADS (1985): A Song That Makes Me Smile!

Well We Know Where We’re Goin’…

…But We Don’t Know…

…Where We’ve Been…

…And We Know What We’re Knowin’…

…But We Can’t Say…

…What We’ve Seen…

…And We’re Notย Little Children…

…And We Know…

…What We Want…

…And The Future Is Certain…

…Give Us Time To…

…Work It Out. ..

ROAD TO NOWHEREIs Totally Wonderful Song From The 1985 TALKING HEADS AlbumLITTLE CREATURES!!!

…We’re On A Road To Nowhere…

…Come On Inside…

…Takin’ That Ride To Nowhere…

…We’ll Take That Ride…

…I’m Feelin’ Okay This Morning…

…And You Know…

…We’re On A Road To Paradise…

…Here We Go…

…Here We Go…

I Awoke This Morning In The Mood For Some Quality Jams From…

TALKING HEADS

…My OTHER Favorite Band Of All-Time!!!

If You Thought People Gave Me Odd Looks For Loving DEPECHE MODE

…Then You Should Have Seen/Heard Them When I’d Pop On My TALKING HEADS Tunes.

๐Ÿ˜‰

I Learned Very VERY Quickly That Most Peeps My Age Simply Didn’t Dig Their Music At All.

And Ya Know What, Kiddies…

…That’s Perfectly Fine With Me.

I’ve ALWAYS Preferred To Look At It In The Lighter-Vein Of…

"Those Fools Don't Know What They're Missin', Fo Flippin' SHO!"

What Do You Think?

Am I Out-Of-Line?

Or, Are We On The Same Page?

I’m Promise I’m Hoping For The Latter!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Now…

…I LOVE Me Some TALKING HEADS

…And While There Are Many MANY Jams Of Theirs I Truly LOVE And ENJOY…

…This Song…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Off Of The Album…

LITTLE CREATURES

…Just Stood-Out To Me, Today.

Most Folks Who Happen To Be TALKING HEADS Fans Seem To Feel Their Music Really Started Going Downhill Following The Huge Success Of The Live Concert Album…

STOP MAKING SENSE

…And, To An Extent, They’re Correct.

Most Of Their Greatest Jams DID Come-Out Before That Album.

HOWEVER…

…That Doesn’t Mean Everything That Followed It Was A Pure Crap, Ya Know?!

And If We’re Discussing The BEST They Had To Offer AFTER That Album…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Would Rank At The Very VERY Tippy-Tip-Top, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

It’s A Jam That Takes Me Back To My Childhood…

…And Does So Without Much Effort.

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Was The Very First Song By TALKING HEADS I Had The Pleasure Of Hearing OTHER THAN The Tracks Off Of The “STOP MAKING SENSE” Album.

It Quickly Became A Personal Favorite…

…And It Remains So To This Very Day.

I Remember It Even More-So Because Of It’s Wonderfully ODD/CRAZY Music Video.

((That’s A Link To The Video On The Ole YouTube If You’re In The Mood For It.))

๐Ÿ˜€

ANYWAY…

…I Sure Do Hope Y’all Have An Amazing Day.

The Weather Is Acceptable Outside Right Now…

…So I Think It’s Time For Yours Truly To Pop His Sneakers On And Go For A Little Walk-About.

Please Take Care Of You For Me, My Peeps.

I Shall Holla At Y’all Later On, I’m Sure!!!

Until Then…

(NOT SO) Random (JAMES BOND BLU-RAY) Movie Mention: “A VIEW TO A KILL” (1985)

A View To A Kill (1985)

Yeah, That’s What’s On.

I Just Happen To Have This Classic JAMES BOND Caper On Ye Ole BLU-RAY, Now!

Exciting, Eh?!

๐Ÿ˜€

For The Longest Time, I Insisted To My Friends ((and anyone else whom might/might-not care)) That This BOND Adventure…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Was MY ULTIMATE-FAVORITE BOND Flick.

Period.

And, For The Bulk Of My Youth, It Honestly Was.

While It May Not Be MY FAVORITE Any Longer, It Remains A True Joy For Me To Kick-Back And Watch.

A VIEW TO A KILL” And “OCTOPUSSY” Actually Started My Personal Love Affair AND Adventure With Ole –007– And His Amazingly Wonderful World.

I Sincerely Haven’t Looked Back, Since.

I’ve Been Hooked From The Onset.

I Do So So SO Love This Movie, And Think It To Be Very Very VERY Underrated.

Yeah, I’ll Grant That ROGER MOORE Was A Little “Long-In-The-Tooth” At Times During This One.

It Can’t Be Denied, So I Won’t Even Try To Do So.

But, Did It Honestly Bother Me???

Nope.

NOT. AT. ALL.

I’m A Huge ROGER MOORE Fanboy.

He Shall Always AND Forever Be MY FAVORITE BOND, And It’s Pure Bliss For Me To Watch Him Go On A Mission As The World’s Most Famous Spy.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

A VIEW TO A KILL” Co-Stars CHRISTOPHER WALKEN As Our Baddie, The F-in’ Brilliantly Insane “MAX ZORIN“, Whom Is Hell-Bent On Destroying Silicon Valley, California, With A Man-Made MEGA-DISASTER!

He Wants To Corner The World’s Microchip Market, You See.

Honestly, He’s The Icing On The Sweet Sweet Cake That Is A ROGER MOORE Bond-Fest.

And, If CHRISTOPHER WALKEN Is The Icing, Then GRACE JONES As The Evil Henchwoman “MAY-DAY” Is The Strawberry On-Top!

(((I hate raw cherries, so those don't come anywhere near my sweet sweet cakes with icing!)))

Just Sayin’.

๐Ÿ˜‰

This Flick Is Truly PRICELESS.

It’s Over-The-Top At Times, But It’s Totally Worth It, My Peeps.

The Chase Scene Going From The Eiffel Tower, And Ending With A Crashed Wedding On A Barge, Is Simply Wonderful FUN.

And, That’s Exactly What The Whole Flick Is…

FUN!!!

Sometimes, That’s Really All I’m Lookin’ For.

I’m Very Happy To Have Now Added This BOND Caper To My Blu-ray Collection, And Now I’m Going To Get Back To Watching It.

I’ve Likely Seen It 412’ish Times…

…BUT It Has Yet To Get Old.

OH, And Don’t Forget About The Film’s Theme Song!

It’s Performed By Another Person Favorite…

DURAN DURAN

!!! !!! !!!

VTAK_-_UK_cinema_poster (via Wikipedia)

It’s STILL My Absolute Favorite BOND Theme Song.

Period Period Period.

Y’all Should Give This BOND Flick Another Chance, My Peeps.

It Is Deserving Of At Least That Much.

Who Knows, Maybe You’ll Encounter A New Found Appreciation For It.

I Know I Did, And I Already Really Enjoyed It.

You Just Can’t Beat JAMES BOND On The BLU-RAY!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Movie Watching, Kiddies!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Of All The Songs To Get Stuck In My Head: “YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)” (1985) By BILLY JOEL

***

*** ***

“…Just Like A Boxer In A Title-Fight

You’ve Got To Walk In That Ring Alone

You’re Not The Only One Who’s Made Mistakes

But They’re The Only Things That You Can Truly Call Your Own…”

“…Don’t Forget Your Second Wind

Wait In The Corner

Until Our Breeze Blows In…”

“…You’ve Been Keeping To Yourself These Days

‘Cause You’re Thinking Everything’s Gone Wrong

Sometimes You Just Want To Lay Down And Die

That Emotion Can Be So Strong

But Hold On

‘Til That Ole Second Wind Comes Along. …”

*** ***

***

Alright…

…Sheesh…

…What A Way To Begin The Day, Eh?!

Agreed.

I Don’t Know Why I Awoke In The Mood For The Musical Stylings Of…

BILLY JOEL

…But Sure Enough, I Did.

I Couldn’t Help It.

I Needed Something Upbeat…

…But With Lyrics That Were Meaningful.

When In Doubt, My Peeps…

JOEL-IT!

๐Ÿ˜‰

He’s Always Got That Loving Combination Of Quality Beats/Rhythms AND Lyrics That Hold Special Meaning For Those Listening To Him.

BILLY JOEL

…Always Manages To Leave Me In A Better Mood Than When He Found Me, That’s A BIG FO SHO.

Sometimes, I Know Exactly Why…

…While At Other Times, I Honestly Have No Clue As To Why I’m In A Better Mood Following A Couple Of His Jammin’ Tunes, Such As…

YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)”

๐Ÿ˜€

I Suppose It’s All Just Linked To My Childhood.

BILLY JOEL

…Was A Constant Fixture Around My Home.

My Mother LOVED Him.

And That May Be An Understatement.

We Had His Music-Video Collection On The Ole VHS.

We Had The Bulk Of His Albums On The Ole CASSETTES.

He Was With Us At Home.

He Was With Us In The Car.

He Was With Us When We Went To Someone Else’s Home.

You Name It…

BILLY JOEL

…Was There.

Period.

Now…

…At 30’ish’ish Years Of Age…

…I Still Can’t Get Away From The Guy.

I Have His Greatest Hits Both On The CD And On My MP3Player.

Whenever I Need A Fix…

…There He Is.

Ready.

Willing.

Able.

Just Kickin’-It-Back…

…Waiting For The Time When His Services Are Called To Attention.

And This Morning…

…I Needed Him.

I Awoke Kinda Pissy.

I Went To Bed Super Early, As I Did Not Feel Good.

I Missed A Few Texts And Phone-Calls.

Things I’d Been Waiting On Most Of The Day.

That’s Always Kinda Upsetting.

Nothing I Can Do About It…

…But Still Upsetting.

SO…

…I Sincerely Needed A Pick-Me-Up.

BILLY JOEL

…In All His Wisdom…

…Swooped-In And Rescued Me!

Kudos, Man.

Kudos, Indeed.

๐Ÿ˜€

It’s Now FRIDAY, My Peeps!

The Weekend Is Upon Us!

So Let’s Get This Day Out Of The Way So We Can Kick-It-Back And Enjoy It, Hey Hey!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Y’all Please Take Care Of Yourselves.

If Not For You…

…Do It For Me.

Someone’s Gotta Have A Damned Decent Day…

…And It Might As Well Be YOU!!!

I’ll Be Right Here The Bulk Of The Day…

…And I’ll Try To Keep Y’all Occupied As Best As I Can.

UNTIL THEN… ๐Ÿ˜€

Song Of The Moment: “VOICES CARRY” by ‘TIL TUESDAY (1985)

In The Dark…

…I Like To Read His Mind…

…But I’m Frightened…

…Of The Things I Might Find…

…Oh, There Must Be Something He’s Thinking Of…

…To Tear Him Away…

…When I Tell Him That I’m Falling In Love…

…Why Does He Say…

… … …

VOICES CARRYIs The Hit Title Track Of The 1985 Album By The New Wave Band ‘TIL TUESDAY !!!

… … …

Hush, Hush…

…Keep It Down Now…

…VOICES CARRY…

…Hush, Hush…

…Keep It Down Now…

…VOICES CARRY…

… … … … …

… … …

To Put It Simply…

…This Song Popped-Up On The Ole MP3Player…

…And I Felt It Perfectly Appropriate Following The Lengthy Post About My Psych Eval.

Not To Say They’re Connected In Any Way…

…No.

It’s Just Oddly Amusing To Me That…

…Of All The Potential Songs To Have Pop-Up…

…Yeah…

…It Was…

VOICES CARRY

by ‘TIL TUESDAY

๐Ÿ˜€

That Alone Was Enough To Put A Big Ole Smile On My Face…

…And I’ve Been Grinning Like An Idiot Since.

Oh, My Peeps, The Things That Make People Stop And Just Laugh A Bit.

We Are Strange Creatures, Kids.

But I Totally Dig Strange Creatures.

So I’m Trying To Have A Little Fun With This.

VOICES CARRY

…Is A Great Little Number, That’s Fo SHO.

It’s A Song I’ve Always Enjoyed…

…BUT…

…This Morning…

…Right Here…

…Right Now…

…It Is…

…THE PERFECT SONG.

I Kinda Like How That Worked-Out, Actually.

I Needed A Good Giggle.

Can Anyone Say “Irony”?!

MEEE TOOO!!!

At This Point In Life…

…Honestly…

…One Would Think I’d Have A Few Things Figured Out.

And I Do.

In Many Many MANY Ways…

…I Really Really REALLY Do.

But…

…When We Delve Deeply Into The World Of “Personal-Relationships”…

…I Still See Myself As A Fumbling, Bumbling Beginner.

Dammit, I KNOW…

…I FEEL…

…There’s Simply NO WAY On Hell’s Half-Acre I Can Be This Damned Clueless About Such An Encompassing Subject.

I May Suck-Ass At Mathematics…

…But I’m A Wiz At History…

…Literature…

…Writing…

…Reading…

…Critiquing The Writing And Reading Of Others…

…And On…

…And On…

…And On And On And On.

And Yet…

…When It Comes To Matters Of The Heart…

…I Sincerely Feel As Inept And Clueless NOW…

…As I Did 20+Years Ago.

I’m Not The Smartest Man Alive…

…And I’m Far From Being The Dumbest…

…Yet I Seem To Have Met My Match…

…Literal AND Proverbial…

…When It Comes To Love.

And THAT ADMISSION Has Me Royally Cheesed-Off, My Peeps.

Admitting A Failing…

…To Me…

…Is Like Inviting The Plague Into My Home Thinking It’s Actually My Aunt Stopping By For A Visit.

EXACTLY.

They’re About A Mile-Wide In Difference…

…Yet Feel Exactly The Same.

And It Gnaws At Me.

With Every Passing Moment, It Does So.

How Can I Be So Goddamn Clueless???

How Can I Be So Smug, And Feel Justified In My Smugness…

…When I Can’t Figure-Out Simple Human Emotion.

There Truly Are Days When I Feel Like “DATA” From STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.

And No, That’s Not A Joke.

I’m Serious.

He’s Doomed To Simply Trying To Understand Something He Doesn’t Really Have.

Well…

…I’m Similar In The Way That I’ve Been Struggling My Whole Life To Understand Them…

…And…

…At THIS Moment…

…I Feel Like A Babe In The Woods All Over Again.

Each Time I THINK I’ve Figured Something Out…

…I Get The Ole 12-To-6 Curveball…

…And I End-up Flat On My Ass.

Happens Each AND Every Time.

Perhaps My Failing Isn’t The Not-Understanding Part…

…But More-So…

…The Not-Expecting Part.

???

Maybe???

I’m Thinkin’ Maybe On This One.

Fo SHO, My Peeps.

Maybe, It Shall Be.

But Even That Little Answer Is As Wishy-Washy As I Can Plainly Put It.

For Most Things In Life, There Is NO Maybe.

Things ARE Or ARE-NOT.

A Thing IS Or IS-NOT.

Only Humans Could Invent Something So Non-Answering As MAYBE.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…I’m A Card-Carrying PROFESSIONAL In Regard To “Non-Answers”…

…Maybe.

๐Ÿ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…I’m Sorry…

…I’m Drifting From My Point For Having Written This Piece In The First Place.

LOVE.

LOVE Is My Point Of Points.

Just What Exactly Is LOVE, My Peeps?!?

To Be Honest…

…I Haven’t The Foggiest.

And The Answer Seems To Change With Each Person Asked.

Everyone Has Their Own Idea…

…Or Ideals…

…Or Way…

…Or Shape…

…Or Form…

…Or Feeling…

…Or Non-Feeling.

Some Think Of It As Simply “Someone I Can Talk To When I’m Down/Hurting.”

Others Think Of It As Simply “Someone I Go To When I Need That Extra Fortifying Touch Of Encouragement.”

And To Others, It’s “Someone They Go To When They Desire Physical Satisfaction.”

Alright…

…So…

…Which Of Those Am I?

Do People Come To Me When They’re Down Or Hurting?

Nope.

They Know Ahead Of Time I’m Likely To Be Very Frank With Them, And I’ll Just End-Up Making It Worse.

Do People Come To Me When They Need That Touch Of Encouragement?

Nope.

They Know Ahead Of Time I’m Exceptionally Critical, And I Don’t Know How To Sugar-Coat Anything, Especially When Sugar-Coating Is What’s Truly Called-For And/Or Desired.

Do People Come To Me To Aide In Feeling Physical Satisfaction?

HA HA HA

I’ll Leave That One With A Simple “Nope” And I’ll Carry-On.

So What’s Left?

Sitting At Home…

…Alone…

…Listening To The Sad Songs Of My Youth.

That’s What’s Left.

Regardless Of Where I Go, Or Don’t Go…

…Regardless Of What I Do, Or Don’t Do…

…I’m At Least Able To Retain That.

I Retain The Part Of Me That Simply LOVES Sappy-Ballads Of Yesteryear.

JUST AS I AM

by AIR SUPPLY

…Is…

…Without Any Doubt…

…One Of The Best Of The Sappy Sappy Best Best.

Period.

I’ve Known The Song The Bulk Of My Life…

…Thanks To My Mother…

…And The Rockin’ Sound-System She Had In ย Our 1982 Buick Regal.

For It’s Time…

…The Car With PIMP.

But The Sound Thumping Through The Speakers Was Incredible.

Of Course…

…She’d Play Music That I Ended-Up LOVING.

BILLY JOEL

HUEY LEWIS And THE NEWS

MICHAEL JACKSON

…And YES Even…

AIR SUPPLY

!!! !!!

I Used To Make A Total Ass Of Myself When I’d Go Toย Karaoke Nights In Whichever Bar I Was In At That Time.

I’d Play Some Really Sappy Ballads And Would Just Wail Away At Them.

Sometimes For Better.

Sometimes For Worse.

But I Always Had Fun.

And The Audience All Called Me Vile Names.

And That Became Sort Of A Point Of Pride.

I Didn’t Think I Was Doing My Songs Right If I Didn’t Get At Least ONE Drink Thrown At Me By A Tanked-Ass Redneck.

My Friends In Attendance Always Said I Provoked The Situation.

Perhaps I Did.

Perhaps I Didn’t.

Guess That’s Another “MAYBE” Type Situation, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

I’m Going To Digress Now…

…As I Feel I’ve Lost Myself In A Ramble That Could Literally Go On And On For Days And Days.

Just Understand Me, My Peeps.

I Know What I Want.

I Know What I Can Get With Some Effort.

And I Know What I’ve Already Got.

The Question Truly Truly TRULY Is…

“What Are You Willing To Live With AND Accept, Bradley Alan?”

“What Makes You Happiest At The End Of The Day, When It’s All Said And Done?”

“What More Do You Honestly WANT?”

“What More Do You Honestly NEED?”

??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

??? ??? ??? ???

???

Shit, My Peeps, Do I Ever Have A Bad Headache.

I Need A Drink.

Who’s Buying The First Round?!?

๐Ÿ˜‰

Goodnight, Kids.

Sleep Sweet.

Sleep Well.

Dream BETTER.

…If I Didn’t Already Know It Would EAT ME ALIVE FROM THE INSIDE…

It’s Supposed To Be BETTER Than Whipped-Cream, My Peeps!!!

How Could You NOT Wanna TRY IT?!?!?!

“THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!” …Unless It’s A CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Double Shot! “SUBWAY” (1985) and “HIGHLANDER” (1986)

I’ve Paired These Two Flicks Together For One Reason…

…And One Reason Only.

They Are…

…In My Opinion…

…The Two Flicks MOST RESPONSIBLE…

…For Putting…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

…”On-The-Map” As They Say.

=== === === ===

SUBWAY

(1985)

"SUBWAY" Was Written AND Directed By LUC BESSON. It Stars CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT, ISABELLE ADJANI, RICHARD BOHRINGER, and JEAN RENO!

=== === === ===

…And…

=== === === ===

HIGHLANDER

(1986)

"HIGHLANDER" Was Directed By RUSSELL MULCAHY, And Stars CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT, CLANCY BROWN, ROXANNE HART, and SEAN CONNERY!

=== === === ===

M’Kay…

…Now I Already Know What You’re Gonna Say.

“Hey Dude, “GREYSTOKE: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN, LORD OF THE APES” Came-Out In 1984!”

And YES…

…You Would Be Correct On That.

HOWEVER…

…That Film, To Me, Was More-So The Ole “Foot-In-The-Door” For…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

.Period.

In 1984, However…

…Most Folks The World Over Still Had NO CLUE Who He Was.

Then Came…

SUBWAY

…In 1985.

SUBWAY

…Was A True “UNDERGROUND-SUCCESS”, So To Speak.

(Pun TOTALLY Intended, btw)

And I’m Going To Say This Because I Feel It’s Something Y’all MUST UNDERSTAND…

…But I Sincerely…

…Honestly…

…TRULY…

…Hate Hate HATED…

SUBWAY

…The First Time I’d Seen It.

I Love Love LOVED The Opening Of The Flick…

…But Was Very Much-So…

…CONFUSED…

…And…

…BORED…

…With Most Of The Rest Of It.

More Than Once…

…I Was Forced To Say To Myself…

…”WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?”…

…”WHAT AM I WATCHING?”…

…”WHO THOUGHT UP THIS SHIT?”…

…”IS THERE REALLY A COMMUNITY LIVING IN THE SUBWAY?”…

…And So-On…

…And So-Forth…

…And So-Forth Again.

And YES, My Peeps…

…I Can Almost Guarantee All Of You…

…You’re VERY LIKELY To Say Those EXACT SAME THINGS…

…When You Watch…

SUBWAY

…For The First…

…And Second…

…And Third…

…And Perhaps Even The Fourth Time.

It. Is. WEIRD.

.PERIOD.

Eventually…

…I Started Noticing Some Things I Hadn’t Before.

I Started To Understand It A Bit Better.

I Mean…

…It IS A FRENCH Flick.

It’s SUBTITLED.

It Is NOT An Easy Watch.

Once It All Begins To Fall Into Place…

…However…

…It Becomes A Bit Fun…

…In Its Own…

…Odd…

…Quirky…

…Weird Way.

If You Are A Person Who’s BLESSED With A Little Something Called PATIENCE…

…Then YES, I CAN Recommend This Flick To You.

If You’re One Who’s LACKING In The PATIENCE-DEPARTMENT…

…You May Wanna Hold-Off On…

SUBWAY

…For Now.

You Should Really Just Trust Me On This One.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Now…

…When I Talk About…

HIGHLANDER

…I’m Talkin’ About A Flick MOST “Movie-Lovin’-Folks” Have At Least HEARD OF.

And I’m Quite Sure MOST Of Those “Movie-Lovin’-Folks” Would Agree With Me When I Say…

HIGHLANDER

…Is…

Of Course, My Peeps…

…This Is All Simply MY Opinion.

That’s GREAT!!!

And…

…There Also Appears To Be More And More Of You Willing To Call-Me-Out On A Few Of My Opinions.

I So SO HATE IT When Everything Is All One-Sided, Ya Know?

One-Sided = UNBALANCED

I Love Knowing There Are Folks Out There Who Think I’m RIGHT-ON And Those Who Think I’m WAY-OFF.

I Sincerely Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way.
