“…I Thought That I

Was Over You

But, Its True

So True

I Love You Even More

Than I Did Before

But, Darlin‘, What Can I Do

For You Dont Love Me

And, Ill Always Be

CRYING

Over You

CRYING

Over You

Yes

Now Youre Gone

And From This Moment On

Ill Be CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

Over You.”

I Know What You’re Wondering, My Peeps, I Really Do.

Is Young Bradley Sad This Morning?

Bradley Only Busts-Out The ROY ORBISON When He’s In A Downer Mood.

And, In Thinking That, You’d Be (almost) Very VERY Correct.

I Am Sad, This Morning.

It Happens.

To All Of Us, It Happens.

After Having A Conversation Last Night With Someone, My Mood Has Been Sinking Further And Further.

Again, It Happens.

Every Single Day Can’t Be Bubblegum And Candy, Ya Know?!

And, While I Do Tend To Listen To ROY ORBISON When I’m Down…

…I Also Listen To Him When I’m Supremely Happy.

There’s No Rhyme, Nor Reason.

It Just Happens.

But, Today, I’m So Very VERY Sad.

Being Taken To Task About One’s Life (or lack thereof) Is Never A Conversation One Enjoys.

In That, I’m Very Human.

I Didn’t Like It One Bit.

And, I’d Be Lying If I Said It Didn’t Effect Me On All Levels…

…Mental…

…Emotional…

…Physical…

…You Name It.

Did I Cry?

Even A Little?

You Betcha.

Did I Feel Better Afterward?

No.

Not In The Slightest.

In Fact, I Felt Weak.

I Felt Disgusted With Myself, Honestly.

Why I Let Anyone/Anything Effect Me Like That Is Beyond Me.

But, It Happens.

To The Very Best (and very worst) Of Us, It Happens.

So, This Morning, I Felt It Was Time To Work A Bit.

I Had To Get This Out Of My Head, Even In Some Small Way.

CRYING

byROY ORBISON

((with k. d. lang))

…Is My All-Time Favorite Duet In Music History.

Period.

In My Book, It Doesn’t Get Any Better.

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Enjoy It.

… … …

QUESTION:

When YOU Are Sad, What Songs Do YOU Listen To, My Peeps???

Anything Specific, Or Special???

Let Me Know.

I’d Love To Know.

May I Know?

… … …

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

When Remembering Turns To Dwelling Turns To Suffering…

You Know Youre Fu*ked.

At This Moment, Im Writing Just To Watch Myself Write.

Ive Slept Less Than 35Hours In The Past 10Nights COMBINED.

Im Irritable.

Im Sullen And Moody.

Ive Lost 15LBS In That 10Day Span.

I Dont Understand Why I Let Myself Get This Depressed.

I Know I Do It To Myself.

Its My Own Fault.

But, IM Not My Own Fault.

I Know That.

I Never Have Been.

I Was Created And Shaped By Events In My Life That Have Seriously Fu*ked-MeUp.

Why Cant I Shake This?

Why Does The Past Still Cling To Me Like The Stench Of Death?

It Haunts My DayToDay Existence.

I Know Why.

BECAUSE I LET IT.

Period.

MY BAD.

Its These Memories.

I Cant Handle Them As Well As Id Like To.

As Well As I SHOULD.

Its Honestly Maddening.

Its Hard.

Its So Very VERY Hard.

I Go From Day To Day Seeing No Benefit From It All.

Ive…

Sheesh

Ive Become My Own Worst Enemy.

Just As I Was Always TOLD I Would Be.

Just As I Always KNEW I Would Be.

It Happens To Us All At Some Point, Sure.

It’s Life.

Its LIVING Life.

My Moments Of Weakness And Horror Come To Me Like Flashes.

As Images.

Images A Person Should Never See.

No One.

The Thoughts Linger.

The IllFeelings They Cause Linger Longer.

Am I Having An Identity Crisis?

Whatever It Is, Its Hanging On Way Way WAY Tooo Long.

Talking To People Is Becoming More And MORE Difficult.

There Are A Couple Key People Id Love To Talk To.

They Just Dont Want To Talk To Me.

Sometimes, I Break Down And Simply MUST Talk To Someone.

Those Are The Moments When Im Feeling My Worst.

When I Know Somethings Wrong Inside, And I Need To Make An Outside Connection Before I Snap.

I Feel The Worst, Though, When I Do Have To Ask For Help.

But, At The Point I Start Talking, Im Already Scraping The Bottom Of The Barrel For The Oxygen I Need To Survive.

I Am.

It Gets Hard To Breathe.

I Start Feeling Sorry For Myself.

I Lose Personal Control.

I Become Someone Else.

Someone I Truly Am NOT.

A Whining

Crying

Sniveling

UsedToBe.

I Know I’m Only 30ishish.

Some Attempt To Push Upon Me That Im Still Far Too Young To Deal With Shit As I Do.

But, Everyones Different

Correct???

Everyones Got Their Own Stopping And Starting Point.

Their Own Breaking Point.

I Guess Mine Was Just A Bit Earlier In Life Than Some Others.

I Know I Dont Have It That Bad.

Its Not Like Someone Close To Me Has Died, Or Is Dying.

Its Simply The Past.

A Past Ive Yet To Beat.

A Past Ive Yet To Escape From.

A Past Ive Yet To Come To Terms With.

A Past Ive Yet To Let Go Of And Move On From.

And Its Destroying My Present.

I Guess Some Of This Is Normal, Right?

Thinking Of It All Has Just Brought Me Down So Much.

I Just Feel Very Alone, At Times.

But, I Do Understand That Life Could Be Much Worse.

Sadly

My Once RemarkedUpon Eyes Are Heavy, Dark, And Tired.

My Hopeful Outlook Has Turned Bleak.

Yet, Despite It All, I Survive.

MAYBE It All Has Made Me Stronger In Some Ways?

But, At What Personal Cost?

With Age And Experience Has Also Come Fear

Hate

Despair.

Where I Once Felt Love, I Now Feel Bitterness.

Where I Once Felt Alive, I Now Feel Drained.

Where I Once Cared About Life, I Now Resent It.

So Sad, Yet, So True.

It Just Pisses Me Off To No Extent.

When Wonderful Memories Become Jaded With Time.

I Swear, It Literally Makes Me Sick.

What I Wouldnt Give For A Moments Peace.

A Clear Mind.

A Quiet Mind.

I Know I Have Some Amazing Moments Stored In My BrainCase.

Ive Just Become To Bitter To See Them.

*** ***

PLEASE, My Peeps

Dont Be Alarmed By Anything Ive Said.

Its Just A Downer Moment For Me, And Im Allowing You To Experience It With Me.

I Guess I Just Wanted To Vent A Bit, As I Often Do When I Get Like This.

As Ive Said To Yall Before

…Sometimes, Its Not Just The BEST Therapy

…Its The ONLY Therapy.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

So, Why Is Love So Hard For Me To Handle?

Well, My Peeps…

…I Have A Story To Tell You, And I’m Not Really Sure How To Tell It.

I Have To Take You Back In Time A Bit.

Back To A Time When I Was Fickle.

Back Before I Understood The True Impact…

…The True Meaning Of What Love Really Is.

I’m Taking You Back 10 Years.

Back When My Issues Really Began.

You See, I Dated Someone.

Someone Beautiful…

…Inside AND Outside.

Someone With A Sharp Mind…

…With The Kindest Heart…

…Someone Whom Truly Deserved The Best I Could Give Them.

Regardless Of Any Thing…

…They Deserved The Very Very Best.

They Deserved Better Than I Ever Could Give Them Was What I Eventually Decided.

We Met.

We Hit It Off Immediately.

We Quickly Became A Young Power-Couple.

I Quickly Fell In Love…

…And I Fell Very VERY Hard.

So Quickly And So Hard, In-Fact, That I Became Truly Terrified.

I Admit It, My Peeps, I Was Scared Shitless.

He Was Young.

He Was Physically Strong.

He Was Physically Hot.

He Was Emotionally Strong.

He Was Emotionally Complete.

And I Know He Loved Me.

He Loved Me Like No One Ever Had…

…Like No One Ever Has Since.

And, As I’ve Said, I Was Scared.

I Was Terrified.

And I Held Back.

I Did My Best Never To Tell Him Just How Much I Cared…

…Just How Much I Truly Loved Him.

I Never Let Him Know How Wonderful He Was.

How Special He Was.

How Much I Wanted Him.

How Much I Wanted To Protect Him.

So…

…The Decision Was Made By ME, Of Course.

The Decision Was Made To Spare This Guy.

The Best Way To Protect Him…

…The Best Way To Make Sure I Didn’t Eventually Do As I Always Do And Eventually Hurt Him.

The Decision Made Was To Let Him Go.

To Me, That Was The Best Thing I Could Do For Him.

I Couldn’t Let Him Into My World As I Wanted To…

…So I Did, What I Considered To Be, The Noble Thing.

I Walked Away.

I Pulled The Plug.

Right Or Wrong, That’s How It Eventually Went Down.

I Convinced Him I Wasn’t Happy.

I Convinced Him I Didn’t Really Want To Be With Him.

I Convinced Him I Only Ever Dated Him In The First Place Because I Saw Him As A Virtual Doppelganger To A Previous Love Of Mine.

I Did Everything I Could To Make Sure He Was Convinced I Was Serious.

That I Really Wanted out.

After A Few Tears…

…From Us Both…

…We Separated.

The Break-Up Actually Went Better Than I Expected It To.

We Parted Ways Later That Day.

I Haven’t Seen Him, Face To Face, Since.

But All Of This Was More The Preamble To The Meat Of The Story.

You See…

…Fast Forward A Few Months…

…I’m Sitting At Home.

A Simple, Quiet Evening.

I Was Feeling Tired.

I Was Feeling Lonely.

I Was Feeling Sorry For Myself…

…And For Things I’d Done Or Said.

Then The Phone Rang.

To My Astonishment, It Was Him.

He Was Contacting Me!

My Heart Literally Leaped!

I Couldn’t Have Been More Excited About The Prospect Of Hearing His Voice Again…

…His Sweet, Sweet Voice.

I’d Wanted To Hear His Voice So So Badly…

…I Was Just Too Stubborn To Call Him Myself.

Each Time I’d Considered Doing So, I Talked Myself Out Of It.

But Now…

…This Time…

…Here He Was.

That Phone-Call, Sadly, Would Become A Living Nightmare.

He Was Tearful.

His Voice Was Shaky.

He Was, Quite Frankly, Terrified.

And Then He Laid It On Me.

Shortly After We’d Broken-Up…

…He Did What Most Would Do In His Situation.

He Went Out.

He Partied.

He Had Fun.

He Did What He Could To Get Me Out Of His Head…

…Out Of His Heart.

So He Got Himself Laid.

He Put Me As Far Behind Himself As He Could.

He Was Experiencing Life Again.

And That’s All It Took.

The Phone-Call Wasn’t To Say Hello.

It Wasn’t To Say Hi, How Are You, What’s New.

It Was To Tell Me He’d Just Received Notice That He Was Now HIV+.

Hearing Him Say Those Words Took A Moment To Sink In.

And Then All Could Think To Do Was Cry.

It Nearly Killed Me When I Finally Wrapped My Head Around It All.

It Was My Fault.

My Fault He Felt The Way He Did.

My Fault He Was Put Into That Situation.

My Fault For Thinking With My Head And NOT My Heart.

Had I Listened To My Heart…

…Honestly…

…I Would Never Have Let Him Go.

We Truly Were Very Perfectly Suited To One-Another.

Had I Not Been Such A Chicken-Shit…

…Had I Not Been So Scared Of My Own Feelings…

…Had I Simply Led With My Heart And Emotions…

…This Would Never Have Happened.

It’s A Guilt I’ve Carried With Me For Nearly 10 Years, Now.

I Did Something I Know I Shouldn’t Have…

…For What I Justified As A Justifiable Reason…

…And Instead Of Protecting Him From Myself…

…I Failed To Protect Him From Anything.

I Just Made Things Worse.

I Destroyed His Life.

I Agonize Over This Event To This Very Day.

I Think About It A Lot.

I Think About How Foolish I Was.

I Think About How Much I Really Did Love Him.

I Think About How I Never Told Him How Much I Really Loved Him.

I Can See The Breakup In My Mind To This Day.

I Remember Every Word I Uttered To Him.

I Remember His Tears.

I Remember That Phone-Call.

I Remember His Tears.

I Remember How I Wanted To Curl-Up And Die When The Call Finally Ended.

How Could I Have Done That, My Peeps?

How Could I Have Been So Foolish To Think That My Loving Someone Was Going To Be Their Ultimate Destruction?

Especially Now.

Knowing That Had I Just Told Him Once How Much I Cared…

…How Much I Wanted Him…

…How Much I Needed Him…

…That This Horrid Outcome Would Never Have Happened.

He Would Be Happy AND Healthy.

He Would Be Living The Life He Should Be.

But Because Of My Actions…

…Because I Couldn’t Handle The Extreme Powers Of Real Love…

…I Made The Worst Decision Of My Young Existence.

I Just Wish I Could Fix It.

I Wish I’d Never Let Him Go.

I Wish This Horrid Outcome Had Never Taken Place.

But I Can’t.

I Can’t Change It.

I Can’t Take It Back.

I Just Have To Live With The Knowledge That Had I Been A Real Man…

…Had I Been Honest About My Feelings…

…This Would Never Have Happened.

As I Said…

…He Would Be Happy AND Healthy…

…And I Would Be Guilt Free.

My Life Fell Apart After That.

I Stopped Loving.

Truly Loving.

I Stopped Trusting.

I Stopped Letting People Into My Life.

Not For My Sake…

…But For Theirs.

I Still Miss Him A Lot.

I Still Wonder How He Is…

…How He’s Doing…

…And I Hope He’s Alright.

I Just Hope…

…One Day…

…He’ll Be Able To Forgive Me.

It Would Be Nice To Know.

Even Though I’ll Never Be Able To Forgive Myself.

I Broke His Heart.

And Then I Shattered My Own.

I’ve Regretted My Actions Every Single Day Since.

It’s 10 Years Later…

…Yet I Haven’t Moved On.

It’s Been Simply Impossible.

Impossible To Let Go.

Impossible To Forgive.

It’s Something I Don’t Believe He’ll Ever Get Over.

And I Know For A Fact It’s Something I’ll Never Get Over.

I Do Still Miss Him.

I Do Still Love Him.

And I Couldn’t Feel More Sorry About It Than I Do.

To This Day…

…I Remain So So Sorry.

Perhaps, One Day, We’ll Meet Again.

And On That Day, Perhaps I’ll Be Able To Come Clean.

To Tell Him How I Felt Then…

…How I Feel Now.

He Deserves To Know The Whole Story.

He Deserves To Know Why I Did What I Did.

I Thought I Was Saving Him By My Walking Away.

All I Did Was Destroy Him.

And…

…In Turn…

…I Destroyed Myself.

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

ROY ORBISON’s “BLACK & WHITE NIGHT”: The Swan-Song Of A Music Legend

I Haven’t Been Buying BLU-RAY Movies For Very Long.

Perhaps A Year Or Two, Now.

Maybe.

And This BLU-RAY…

ROY ORBISON‘s

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Was My Very First BLU-RAY Purchase.

In Fact…

…I Owned It BEFORE I Ever Got A BLU-RAY Player.

No Foolies, My Peeps.

I Knew One Day I’d Own One…

…And This Was The One BLU-RAY Disc I Wanted More Than Any Other.

There Are Many MANY Great BLU-RAY Flicks Out There.

Some Of The Most Amazing Special Effects I’ve Ever Seen With These Two-Eyes Were In The BLU-RAY Format.

Yet…

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Was The One I Wanted Most.

And I’m So Supremely Pleased With Myself For Making Said Purchase.

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Is Simply…

…Honestly…

…Amazingly…

…Wonderful Wonderful WONDERFUL.

Period.

ROY ORBISON

…Is My Music God.

I’ve Loved His Music Since I Was A Child.

I Know, It Sounds Crazy, But You Have To Know Me To Understand Me.

I Was The Kid Who Rarely Listened To What Was Happening Right Then.

I Was Always More Interested In What Had Come Before.

I Was The Kid Who Got Made-Fun-Of Because My First Two CD Purchases Were…

THE JOHN LENNON COLLECTION

…And…

THE BEST OF HERMAN’s HERMITS

πŸ˜€

Again…

…No Foolies, My Peeps.

THE ROY ORBISON COLLECTION

…Was My Third CD Purchase.

It WOULD Have Been First.

It SHOULD Have Been First.

But The Day I Went To “CAMELOT RECORDS” With My Dad To Purchase A Copy, I Was Greeted With A…

"I'm Sorry, Sir, We Sold Our Last Copy Earlier Today. Can I Help You Find Something Else?"

😦

I Was So So SO PISSED.

I Couldn’t Believe Someone Had Bought MY Frickin’ CD.

"That Bastard!"

…Was My First Thought.

"No. I'll Find Something," I Said Meekly.

And I Did.

And I Was Happy To Have My “JOHN LENNON” And “HERMAN’s HERMITS” Discs…

…But It Wasn’t The Same.

I Didn’t Get What I Wanted And I Was Angry.

Who Wouldn’t Be Angry About That?!

EXACTLY!!!

You Would Have Been PISSED, Also.

So…

…When It Came Time To Start Thinking About BLU-RAYS…

…I Knew Immediately Which One I Was Going To Buy.

And By Thunder, I DID IT.

I Got EXACTLY Which Disc I Wanted.

No Hassle.

No Disappointment.

Just Bliss.

Pure, Loving Bliss.

Of All The BLU-RAYS I Now Own…

ROY ORBISON‘s

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Is The Most Special To Me.

His Sound Moves Me.

Unlike Any Other Solo-Artist, He Moves Me.

His Voice…

…Which I Admit Is An Acquired Taste…

…Digs Deeply Into My Soul.

ME…

…The Unemotional Bastard…

…The Quiet…

…The Cold…

…The Cerebral Sociopath…

…Is Moved Nearly To Tears When I Hear ROY Perform.

He’s The Only One, Though.

He’s The Lone Ranger Of My Emotional State.

He Makes Me Smile.

He Makes Me Cry.

He Makes Me Very VERY Happy.

And This BLU-RAY Has Them All.

All His Best Jams.

ONLY THE LONELY

DREAM BABY

BLUE BAYOU

RUNNING SCARED

IN DREAMS

CRYING

CANDYMAN

MEAN WOMAN BLUES

IT’S OVER

OH, PRETTY WOMAN

They’re All Here.

It’s A 17-Track Concert…

…One Of The Last He Performed Before His Unexpected, And Horrifying Death.

When I Heard…

…In 1988…

…That ROY Was Dead…

…I Nearly Lost Myself.

I Simply Couldn’t Believe It.

I Was 8-Years-Old…

…And My Music Hero Was Gone.

It’s A Tough Gig When Your Personal Icon…

…Regardless Of Their Profession…

…Up And Dies On Ya.

It Was So So SO Sad.

😦

BUT…

…Like All Great Artists…

…He Lives On.

His Music Is Still Amazingly Wonderful.

It’s Timeless.

His Sound Was So Unique That It Transcends Time.

For My Money…

…Honestly…

…It Doesn’t Get Any Better.

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Puts ROY Along-Side Music Greats, Like…

SOOO…

Anything Special??

Anything At All???

Well…

…Y’all Know What I’m Watching…

…What I’m Listening To.

And Regardless Of What You’re Watching…

…I WIN.

PERIOD.

πŸ˜‰

Enjoy The Weekend, My Peeps.

I’m Sure You’ve Earned It.

I’m Sure We’ve ALL Earned It.

Got Nothin’ To Chill To, And Enjoy?!

ROY ORBISON‘s

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Could Easily Fill-In.

I Love It.

And Before It’s All Said And Done…

…You’ll Love It, Also.

Trust Me, My Peeps.

Trust Me, Indeed.

MERCY!!!

πŸ˜€

Damn These Weather Changes!

Hey Hey, Kids.

Well…

…Once Again, I Did Get A Good’ishΒ Night’s Sleep.

WOOT.

I Got My 4-Hours…

…So That’s Not Great, But It Is Highly Acceptable.

BUT…

…Good God Do I Have A Headache, This Morning.

I’m Blaming It On The Weather.

Every Time There’s A Major Shift In Weather Patterns…

…Yeah…

…Bradley Gets A Brain-Buster.

😦

So…

…I’m Just Letting Y’all Know Ahead Of Time…

…If I’m A Bit More Quiet Today, Bloggin’ Wise…

…You’ll Know Why.

I Turn Into A Real Bitch When My Head Hurts Like This.

And I’m Not Going To Allow Myself To Make It All Worse, Ya Know?!

So…

…At The Moment…

…I’m Sitting Here…

…Talkin’ To Y’all…

…Softly Listening To Some Music.

Just Being Calm.

Attempting To Allow The Music To Sooth Me.

I Suppose It Would Be More Soothing Had I Set-Up A Playlist.

But NO, I Didn’t.

So What Kind Of Mix Has Played Thus Far, You Ask?!

Well…

…The Player Played…

CRYING

by ROY ORBISON

(with special guest vocalist K.D. Lang)

…Which Is A Perfect Little Song For How I’m Feeling.

So You Can Imagine My Shock When The Next Song Was…

GETTIN’ JIGGY WIT IT

by WILL SMITH

!!!

(hahahahaha)

No Foolies, My Peeps.

ROY And K.D.

…Followed By…

WILL SMITH

πŸ˜€

Now Tell Me That Wouldn’t Make You Go…

WTF?!?!

…’Cause That’s Sure What It Did To Me.

I’ve Got To Remember To Make A Playlist Next Time.

That Would Be A Necessity, I Do Believe.

Wouldn’t You?!?

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

πŸ˜‰

Alright, Kiddies.

I Do Have Some Rather Exceptional Quotes To Post For Y’all Today…

…So That Should Keep Me Busy Enough…

…Mainly Because I’ve Already Done The Hard Part Of Finding And Selecting Them, Their Photos, And Their Information.

The Rest Is Easy-Peasy-Pie, Fo SHO!

So We’ll Just Use This Hump-Day To Chill-Out And Regroup.

Hopefully My Aspirin And Ibuprofen Combo Will Be Kicking-In Very Soon, And I’ll Be Able To Get A Touch Of Relief From The Clutches Of This Damned Headache.

Y’all Please PLEASE Take Care…

…Try To Be Good…

…See Me Soon…

…And…

…Talk To Me Sooner.

In The Words Of My Best-Friend…

Take It Easy And, If It’s Easy, Take It Again!
