I Remain Conscious, Even While Dreaming In My Sleep.

—At Least, I’m Pretty Sure I Do.Β  It Feels Like I Do.Β  When I Wake-Up Wake-Up, I’m Exhausted. Regardless Of How Long I’ve Laid There, I’m Exhausted.

It Doesn’t Make Sense.

I Remember My Dreams… …All Of My Dreams.

My Dreams Are (put mildly) Simply Fu*ked-Up.

Period.

They’re Wild.

They’re Vivid.

They’re Crazy.

They’re Awesome.

They’re Dangerous.

They’re Beautiful.

They’re Horrid.

They’re Amazing.

They’re Disturbing.

All At The Same Time.

If Our Dreams Are A Reflection Of Ourselves, Our True Selves, Then I Sincerely Haven’t A Clue As To What To Say Next.

Perhaps I Sincerely Shouldn’t Have A Clue As To What To Say Next.

I Already Feel Like An “Odd Duck” In Many MANY Ways, So I Just Hope That, In This Instance, I’m No More Odd Than The Rest Of You.

Dreams Are A Very Funny Thing, My Peeps.

Sometimes, I Wish They’d Come True.

Sometimes, I Pray They Don’t Come True.

Sometimes, I Know They’re Going To Come True Whether I Want Them To Or Not.

Sometimes, Sometimes, Sometimes.

Sheesh.

Let The Day Begin, Already.

Time, Brother, You’re Holding Me Up.

I’ve A Place To Go…

…A Person To See…

…A Life To Live.

Right, Kids?!

RIGHT!!!—

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

“…Ask Me What I Want… Easy That’s Just More… How Long Will I Wait For You… Twice As Long As I Did Before…” –DAVE GAHAN (“Dirty Sticky Floors” (2003))

“…Standing In The Freezing Snow

Maybe You Left

I Just Don’t Know

I’ll Soon Be Lying On My Own

On Some DIRTY STICKY FLOOR. …”

DIRTY STICKY FLOORSIs The Lead Track On DAVE GAHAN‘s 2003 Debut Solo AlbumPAPER MONSTERS!!!

First-Off…

…I’m Am HUGELY IN LOVE With…

DIRTY STICKY FLOORS

by DAVE GAHAN

(aka "The Front-Man For DEPECHE MODE")

…And I Have No Issues With Showing It!!!

It’s A Phenomenal Little Number…

…And A Helluva Solo Debut Song!!!

It’s Exceptionally Memorable To Me For A Lot Of Reasons…

…Some Of Which I Can’t Touch-Upon Simply Because I Don’t Know How I’d Put It Into Words.

When This Album Debuted In 2003…

…Sheesh…

…What Can I Say?!?

2003 Was A Wildly Wild Wild WILD Year In My World.

And That’s Putting It Mildly Mild Mild MILD.

No Foolies, My Peeps.

2003 Saw An Ending To A Great Many Things For Me.

It Also Bore Some Of The Greatest Experiences Of My Meager Existence.

It’s Just So Personal.

I’m Struggling To Be Ambiguous…

…And Whishy-Washy…

…And Fog’ishly Foggy.

Relationship Bridges Burned.

Professional Bridges Burned.

I Blew Up The Friggin’ Engine In My Car.

But Only AFTER I’d Driven To Florida And Back With My Best Friend.

In Fact…

…He Was With Me When I Blew-Up The Engine A Few Weeks Later.

BUT…

…Getting To My Point…

…2003 Was The Year Of The Parties.

I Awoke Upon A Few Floors That Year.

But That Was Usually Because The Bed And Couch Was Already Occupied By Someone Worse-Off Than Myself.

So I Personally Justified Sleeping On The Floor…

…At Least…

…To Myself.

Before I Was A Hermit…

…I Was…

…Hmm…

…Very Much NOT A Hermit?

We’ll Go With “Very Much NOT A Hermit” In This Situation.

In Fact…

…I Was Your Classic…

…”Couch Cruiser”…

…Fo SHO.

But…

…Occasionally…

…The Floor Was Where I Found Myself In The Morning.

Though, I Only Recall One That Was Sticky.

The Rest Were All…

…Hmm…

…Linty?!

Goin’ With “Linty” Here.

πŸ˜‰

Well Not Everyone Had A Floor Upon Which There Was Potential For “Stickiness” And Such.

Most People Still Had Carpet Everywhere.

Some Even In The Head!

(Read "The Head" As "The Bathroom" In This Instance.)

Sheesh.

I’m Just Glad To Know I Wasn’t The Only One Going Through Some Of What I Was Going Through.

It Sure Didn’t Feel That Way Then…

…BUT…

…In Retrospect…

…I Think There Were Plenty Of Other Peeps Going Through The Bulk Of It All With Me.

Those People Are All Gone Now.

Save My Best Friend.

And He Just Doesn’t Live ’round Here, Anymore.

Probably A Smart Move On His Part, Fo SHO.

😐

DIRTY STICKY FLOORS

…Is An Homage To A Party-Past.

I Know Dear Ole…

DAVE GAHAN

…Is A Former Party PROFESSIONAL, And HOW!

So I’m Very Proud Of Him For Writing This One.

It Offers-Up A Glimpse Into Something Most People Would Just Rather Forget.

It Makes Me Smile For That Very Reason.

And For A Few Others, Fo SHO.

But That’s A Whole Other Bloggin’ing I’ll Have To Work-On At Some Point.

For Now…

…I’ll Just Leave You With Your Thoughts…

…And…

DIRTY STICKY FLOORS

!!! !!!! !!!

I Sincerely Just Felt This Was The PERFECT Jam For The Moment, My Peeps.

I’ve Been Listening To So Many Quality Jams This Morning…

…But This One…

SULTANS OF SWING

by DIRE STRAITS

…Simply Pushed Itself To The Front Of The Line And Shouted…

"ME ME ME, PICK ME!!!"

And So I Did!!!

SULTANS OF SWING

…Honestly…

…Is The Finest Work From DIRE STRAITS.

Period.

MONEY FOR NOTHING

&

WALK OF LIFE

…Do Run A Close 2ND And 3RD Place, Fo SHO, But It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This One.

I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of DIRE STRAITS My Whole Life, As My Father Simply Loved Them AND He Made Sure I Was Able To Listen To Whatever Music I So Chose.

When In That Situation, You Go With What You Know.

And I Know My Father Has AMAZING Taste In Music.

He Always Has.

He Went To All The Best Concerts.

He Had All The Best Albums.

And He Made Damn Sure I Was Able To Listen To An Amazing Amount Of Quality Jams, Regardless Of Who Was Playing, Or When It Was From.

So DIRE STRAITS Made A Huge Impact On My Young Life.

We Even Had DIRE STRAITS On LASER-DISC!!!

Yeah.

I Know.

I’m Showing My Age A Little.

But That’s Okie The Dokie, Ya Know, Pokey?

SURE YOU DO!!!

SO…

…Here’s Hoping A Little DIRE STRAITS Can Perk-Up Your FRIDAY!!!

Like I Said…

…They’ve Got A Bundle Of Great Tunes…

…But There’s None Better Than…

SULTANS OF SWING

NO DOUBT And FO SHO!!!
