Writing For The Sake Of Writing Is NOT (always) The Best Reason For Doing So…

…Or, So I’ve Been Informed.

However…

…At Times Like These I Think That Statement Is Total BS.

Some Of Us Don’t Have A Reason For Doing So.

If And When I DO Have A Really Real Personal Item For Writing…

…I Tend To Procrastinate Like A Mo FO, Fo SHO.

If I’m Writing For The Sake Of Doing So…

…I Usually End-Up Finishing, Regardless Of The Topic.

Once I Get On A Roll…

…Well…

…You’d Best Be Lookin’-Out.

ANYWAY…

…My Reason For Writing Today Is A Good One…

…Or So I Believe.

I Was Going To Talk About Writing In General.

I Was Going To Talk About How I Don’t Consider Myself A Good One (read as “Person”).

I Was Going To Talk About Life, In All It’s Oddly Intriguing Ways.

Now, I’m Unsure.

The Topic That Was In My Head Would’ve Honestly Needed More Tinkering Than I’m Allowing Myself.

So, What To Talk About?

I Suppose My Favorite Topic Is PAIN.

Real…

…Perceived…

…Imaginary.

Pain That Physically Hurts.

Pain That Mentally Hurts.

And…

…Of Course…

…Pain That Emotionally Hurts.

I’ve Made Some Of My Business Open, And How I Feel Like A Dealer In PAIN.

Not That I Want To Administer It.

No No.

Just That I Think I Understand It.

The Question Then Becomes…

…What Have I Learned-About-It/Taken-Away-From-It?

That It F-In’ Hurts, For Starters.

Whether It’s Happening Directly To You…

…Or To Someone You Know, Or Are With.

Whether It Happens Here…

…Or In Some Far Away City/State/Country.

At Those Times, We Remember All About Our Pains…

…Personal AND Perceived.

So…

…Do We Feel Pain Because Something Happened To Distress People?

Honestly…

…Not Really.

We Try To.

We Just Can’t Totally Connect To The People, And Therefore We Will Unlikely Totally Connect With Them, Nor Their Actions.

"Better ThEM THAN Than ME"

…And I See Nothing To Support An Argument Otherwise.

Now…

…Do We Feel Pain Because Something Happens To Someone We Know AND Love?

Yes.

Yes We Do.

We Feel It Keenly And Hardcore.

So Why?

Why Does Pain Attack Us Most When It’s Someone Personal To Us, And Not Toward Those Elsewhere?

Because We’re (mostly) Numb.

Numb From Seeing It On TV, CONTINUALLY.

Numb From The Video Games That The Kids Play With These Days.

Numb From Movies…

…Numb From The News…

…Numb, Numb, NUMB!!!

Numb Is The ONLY Reason To Do What We Do At Times.

At Other Times, It Takes A Better Approach.

The Problem Is DISCOVERING, Simply, WHAT The Better Approach Really REALLY  IS.

Sadly…

Bradley Does NOT Know What Said Better Approach Really Is.

I Never Have.

I Make Decisions, Yes, But Almost Always I Do So Out Of My Own Personal State Of Numbness.

Sometimes, I Convey My Feelings Quite Well.

The Rest Of The Times I Consider Myself A Failure In That Department.

I Don’t Know How To Be Subtle.

I Don’t Know How To Be Absolutely Careful In My Personal Situations.

I’ve Done So SO Many Stupid Things In Life.

And Those Things Sincerely Stick In My Craw.

They Massively Stick in My Craw…

…And I’m Unable To Find A Happy Medium.

Period.

I Hate Being Extreme.

Too Far Right Means I’m An Asshole For Life With Sincerely No Opinions Other Than Those Already Expressed By Others.

I’d Believe In God…

…I’d Believe In Guns…

…Nuf ‘Ced.

Too Far To The Left, I’m A Radical.

I’m An Outcast.

I’m The Blackest Sheep In A Family Of Black Sheep.

Sheesh.

Once Again, I’ve Written Myself In A Sort-Of Circle.

I Don’t Know What I Should Do With My Issues, Other Than Ignoring Them.

But That’s The Biggest Problem Of All.

I Shut My Feelings Off Way Too Easily…

…And Always Keep Myself Very Calm…

…Centered…

…But When One Door Closes Another Opens…

…Right???

RIGHT!!!

A Chapter Of My Life Has Ended.

Honestly…

…I’m Glad It’s Done And Over-With.

One Less Perpetual Headache To Handle.

Once Again…

…I Was Cold.

I Was Sleepy.

I Was Ready To Be Done.

My Problem Is…

…How I Managed This.

I’m Likely In For A Round Of Bashing.

Those Happen Anyway, Without My Assistance.

Holy Shit, My Peeps.

Yet Another Aimless Ramble.

I (almost) Never Sicken Of The Things We Call Daily Life…

…(almost).

Then Rest Is Always Preferred.

Publishing,  Regardless, Is One Of True Bliss.

So, Perhaps I Should Digress For The Moment With A Digression.

I Have A Pot of Coffee, A Smoke Rolled-Up.

I’m Even Listening To…

HALO

by DEPECHE MODE

…So GO ME!

December 28TH, My Nephew Will Be Staying Here With My family And I.

So, That’s Cool.

MY BEST To Your AND Yours, My Peeps.

L8r L8r, Tater-Tots!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

BRADLEY ALAN

If You’re An Avid Walker… …These 7 Essential Classics Belong On Your MP3Player. Period.

Alright, My Peeps…

…You’re All Very Well Aware By Now That Going For A Walk Is My Primary Means Of Both EXERCISE And MENTAL/EMOTIONAL Downtime.

I Get Out There…

…I Slap On My Tunage…

…And I Go For It.

Sometimes…

…I’m Walking For Distance.

Other Times…

…I’m Walking For A Time-Period.

I Almost Never Know Which I’m Going To Be Doing Until I Get Out There And Get Movin’.

I Like To Change-Up My Routes…

…Trying To Never Go The Exact Same Way Each And Every Time.

Like My Blog, I Tend To Perform The Other Activities In My World As Randomly As Possible.

I HATE MONOTONY.

.PERIOD.

By Maintaining A Feeling Of Pure Randomness…

…My Activities Almost Always Have The Feeling Of NEWNESS.

It’s How My Brain Works…

…And It’s How My Life Unfolds.

I Tend To Just Fall Ass-Backward Into Situations…

…Almost Totally Regardless Of WHAT Said Situation Is.

It’s Both A BLESSING And A CURSE, To Be Sure.

ANYWAY…

…The Point Of This Post Is To Quickly Discuss Some Tunage.

I’m Going To Impart Some Quickie Knowledge On Y’all.

You See…

…I Try To Walk Each And Every Day, When It’s Possible To Do So.

And There Are Many Days When I Go For Said Walks, But I Just Don’t Seem To Have The Energy/Motivation To Go As Long, Or As Far, As I Would Like.

THAT’S WHERE THE SWEET SWEET TUNES COME INTO PLAY!!!

Right Now…

…I’m Going To Share With You Something I Feel Y’all Should Consider For The Next Time You Get Out-&-About.

When It Comes To A Lengthy Walk-About…

…You’ve Gotta Have Those Songs That Motivate You.

Songs Where You Can Time The Steps Of Your Feet With The Beat Of The Song.

They Help You Kick-It-Up At Notch…

…And They Help You Crank-It-Out Like Nobody’s Business.

Here, For Y’all’s Pleasure, Are The 7 Most Important And Essential Songs…

 (in no particular order as I love them all)

…For Powering Through MY Walk.

I’m Going To Begin This With…

That’s Them, My Peeps.

Those Are THE 7 SONGS (and an Honorable Mention) I Simply MUST MUST Have On My Little Music-Box.

I Don’t Listen To All Of Them All The Time…

…But I’m Always Glad To Know I Have Them Handy.

I Derive Much Motivation From Each Of Them…

…And A Heaping Amount Of Pleasure, Also.

If I’m Going To Suggest ANY SONGS That I Feel SHOULD BE On Your Player…

…In Regard To Aiding In Personal Motivation…

…To Get Y’all Movin’ Movin’ Movin’…

…Those Would Be Them.

A Short…

…Sweet…

…Simple Little List Of Jams That Are Very Easy To Obtain…

…And Even Easier To Truly Enjoy!

Are You Ready To Go Tromping-About For A Bit, Yet?

I Sure As Hell Am.

I’ve Already Done One Walk Today…

…And I’m Already Planning On Another.

The Outside Temperature Will Be The Deciding Factor As To WHEN I’ll Be Going For Another Stroll.

I Love To Sweat…

…But I Don’t Wanna Roast.

It’s Supposed To Be One Hot Bastard Outside, Today.

So My Second Walk Will POSSIBLY Be An Evening Affair.

That’s Fine With Me.

It Gives Me All The Time I Need To Come-Up With A New Playlist!

BRING ON THE DAY, WORLD!

I. AM. READY. FO. SHO.
