I’m Not Really Sure What To Think…

…I Just Know I’ve Maintained My Good Mood.

I’ve Been This Way Since Friday.

And, Honestly, I Like It.

๐Ÿ˜€

I’m Not Going To Discuss The Details, As Those Are Mine To Delight In.

I Just Ask That You Be Delighted With Me.

I’ve Been Taking Some Chances, And They’re Paying-Off.

No Risk, No Reward, Right???

RIGHT!!!

And Now…

…Now I’m In The Holding Pattern.

The Classic Game Of Hurry-Up And Wait.

The Thing Is, This Time, I’m Not Sure If I Mind It One Bit.

It’s A Jumble Of Odd Feelings.

I’m Anxious.

I’m Nervous.

I’m Buzzing-About.

It Just Feels Odd.

Not Bad, My Peeps, But Odd.

And, Right Now, Odd Feels Pretty Damned Wonderful.

I’ve Had Good Moments In Life.

I’ve Had Bad Moments In Life.

But, I’m Relishing In These Odd Moments.

Am I Being Foolish???

Honestly, I Don’t Think So.

I Feel Confident.

I’m Not Sure Of What’s Going To Happen…

…But I’m Still Confident.

I’m Confident SOMETHING Is Going To Happen.

That’s The Only Answer I Can Give Where I’m Assured 100% Victory.

I Know, I Know…

…No Risk, No Reward.

Well, In This Instance, I’m Betting On The House.

The House Always Wins, Right???

No, Really, Is That Right???

I’m Generally Not A Gambling Man.

Only When I Want Something Bad Enough, Ya Know?!?

Well, Right Now, I Want Something So Bad I Can Taste It.

I Can Taste It, And It’s Sweet.

It’s So Very VERY Sweet.

But, I’m Going To Have To Work For It.

I’m Going To Have To Work Very VERY Hard.

But, To Me, It’s Worth It.

๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve Been Listening To A Lot Of Music This Past Day/Night.

YOURE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)

by BILLY JOEL

…Is The Song I’ve Listened To The Most.

It’s Very Fitting, Right Now.

Give It A Listen.

I’m Sure You’ve All Been In A Similar Situation As The Person In The Song.

I’ve Blogged About The Song Before…

http://youjivinmeturkey.com/2012/11/02/of-all-the-songs-to-get-stuck-in-my-head-youre-only-human-second-wind-1985-by-billy-joel/

…But It’s Very VERY Relevant For Me At This Particular Time.

Like The Man Says…

“…Youve Been Keeping To Yourself These Days

…’Cause Youre Thinking Everythings Gone Wrong

Sometimesย  You Just Wanna Lay Down And Die

That Emotion Can Be So Strong

But, Hold On

…’Til That Ole Second Wind Comes Along. …”

He’s Got It Exactly Right, My Peeps.

Spot On, BILLY JOEL, Spot On.

Well Played, Sir, Well Played.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I Do Promise, My Peeps, That I’ll Keep Y’all Posted As Best As I Can.

For Now…

…For Right Now…

…Just Know I Am Happy.

Whether That Feeling Lasts, Or Not, Remains To Be Seen.

But, For Now, I’m Rollin’ With It.

Sometimes, That’s Good Enough.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

“So Denied. So I Lied. Are You The Now Or Never Kind? …” –EVE 6’s “HERE’S TO THE NIGHT” ((2000))

“…In A Day

And A Day, Love

I’m Gonna Be Gone For Good Again. …

Are You Willing To Be Had? …

Are You Cool With Just Tonight? …”

“…Here’s A Toast

To All Those

Who Hear Me All Too Well. …”

“…HERE’S TO THE NIGHT

We Felt Alive. …

Here’s To The Tears

You Knew You’d Cry. …

Here’s To Goodbye

Tomorrow’s Gonna Come Too Soon. …”

This Song…

HERE’S TO THE NIGHT

by EVE 6

…Gained A Whole New Level Of Relevance With Me During The Latter Portion Of 2000, And Well Into 2001.

To ME, It Was An Anthem For The Always Coming And Always Going Military Person.

I’d Venture To Say Most Of Y’all Have Had A Friend Or Relative In The Armed Forces.

And, Because I Ventured There, I’m Also Venturing Y’all Understand The Process Of Taking “Shore Leave” Or “Liberty” As We Called It.

It’s Horrid.

You Come Home For A Couple Days…

…And Then You’re Gone For Months And Months.

You Come Home Again For Maybe A Week Or So…

…And Then Your Ass Is Out The Door For The Next Year.

For Those Of You Whom Have Never Had To Deal With This Situation, Trust Me, I Envy You.

Going Home On “Shore Leave” Was Almost Always The Best Part Of My Year.

Going Back To Wherever I Was Stationed At The Time Was Always The Biggest Downer.

I May Have Loved My Job In The Navy…

…But There Was Nothing I Hated More So Than Having To Up And Leave My Family And Friends.

I Never Got Used To Saying Goodbye.

Never.

But, You Suck-It-Up AND You Deal-With-It.

Period.

You Didn’t Have Any Other Options.

That’s Why I Was Drawn To This Song.

I Heard It.

I Listened To It Over And Over.

I Fell In Love With It.

It Was Just So Damned Relevant.

It Fit My Life Situation Perfectly, At That Time.

To This Day, I Have A Very Tender Place In My Heart For This Jam.

It Reminds Me Of An Exceptionally Crazy-Hard Period In My Life.

It Reminds Me Of BOTH The Good AND The Bad Of Said Crazy-Hard Period.

This Song Has Become Quite The Staple In My Life’s Journey.

That’s A Good Thing, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Please Do Try To Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

I Shall Endeavor To Do The Same.

I Wish Us ALL Luck.

L8r L8r, My Tater-Tots.

Long And Spindly

Death Becomes Me

Heaven Can You See What I See?…”

“…Hey, You Pale And Sickly Child

Youre Death And Living Reconciled

Been Walking Home A Crooked Mile…”

“…Paying Debt To Karma

You Party For A Living

What You Take Won’t Kill You

But, Careful What You’re Giving…”

“…MMHMM…”

“…Theres No Time For Hesitating

Pain Is Ready

Pain Is Waiting

Primed To Do Its Educating…”

“…Unwanted, Uninvited Kin

It Creeps Beneath Your Crawling Skin

“…Feel The Fever Coming

You’re Shaking And Twitching

You Can Scratch All Over

Well, My Peeps…

…Bradley Was Taken-To-Task, Tonight.

He Was Coldly (yet thoughtfully) Reminded He’s Not Making The Progress He Should Be On His “Non-Blog” Creative-Writing Endeavors.

And Ya Know Something, Kiddies, He’s Very VERY Correct.

I’m Not Making The Progress I Should Be.

I’ve Let My Emotions Overload My Better Judgment…

…Again.

I’ve Spent Most Of My Time So Worried And Focused On Other Things I’ve Not Really Spent The Time I Should Be Spending On My More Pressing Projects.

In Short…

…I’ve Been SLACKING.

That’s The Only Way To Explain It.

I’ve. Been. SLACKING.

Period.

No One Will Ever Take Me Seriously Until I Have Something To Show For My Efforts.

Will They?

No.

Probably Not.

Until It’s A Reality, It’s Just A Dream.

Correct?

Correct.

So I’m Throwing Myself Into My Work, Again.

It Really Would Make Me Feel Like A Fraud If I Never Completed One Of These Stories.

I’ve Worked So Long, And So Hard On Them.

I Can’t Just Give-‘Em-Up.

I Can’t Just Walk-Away.

I Can’t Just Quit.

I’ve Done That With Nearly Everything I’ve Ever Set-Out-To-Do In My Whole Life.

Talk About A Tough Pill To Swallow.

Ignoring It Has Been Easy.

Realizing It?

Facing It?

Those Have Both Just Sucked Some Major Asshole.

Dealing With It?

I Am.

I So Am.

I Feel Like I’ve Been Wearing Different Masks For A Long Time.

Different Disguises.

I Know That’s Why This Song…

BRILLIANT DISGUISE

by BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

…Resonated With Me So Much, Tonight.

I’ve Been Hiding Because I Doubt Myself.

I Doubt Every Move I Make.

I Doubt Every Move I Don’t Make.

I Doubt Every Thought…

…Every Memory…

…Every Known-Fact…

…Every Unknown-Fact.

Doubt…Doubt…Doubt.

For A Man With A Memory As Acute As Mine…

…That’s A Helluva Lot Of Doubts.

I Used To Be So Sure.

Sure Of Every Action.

Sure Of Every Inaction.

Sure That What I Was Doing Was How I Should Be Doing It.

Sure Of This.

Sure Of That.

Sure…Sure…Sure.

I’m Not Sure When The Doubts Set In.

I Am Sure There Has To Have Been An Event.

There Has To Be A Trigger.

Like Anything Else…

…There Is Cause And Effect.

“A” Happens, And Thus “B” Happens.

That Might Be Oversimplifying It, But It Works.

It Does What I Need It To Do.

I Was A Man Who Was Sure Of Everything.

And Became A Man Who Is Sure Of Nothing.

Something Happened Along The Way.

Some Moment.

Some Event.

Some Trigger.

Am I Right About This?

I Am…Right???

This Final Line Of The Song Is What Really Got Me:

-“…God Have Mercy On The Man Who Doubts What He’s Sure Of.“-

I May Not Be A Man Of Faith, But I Can Totally Identify With What’s Being Said.

I Was Sure Of What I Wanted.

I Was Sure Of How To Get It.

I Was Sure Of How It Was Going To Go Down.

I Was Sure Of Myself.

Then, I Stumbled.

Somewhere Along The Way, I Stumbled.

Time To Pull-Up The Ole Bootstraps And Carry-On, Eh?!

Eh, Indeed!!

I Know How To Write.

I Know I Know How To Write.

So Why The Hell Haven’t I Been Writing?

Like My Friend Told Me…

…My Blog IS A HOBBY.

It IS NOT A PROFESSION.

Somewhere Along The Way I Forgot That Little Fact, Also.

I Love My Blog.

I Have Fun With My Blog.

It Brings Me Joy.

But, In The End, It Really Is Just A Hobby…

…Isn’t It?

Accordingly, I Must Treat It As Such.

Something To Tinker With When The Real Work Has Ceased For The Day.

Right?!

RIGHT!!

Midnight Is Drawing Near.

I Suppose I’ve Said What Needed To Be Said.

I’m Grateful To My Friend For Having The Balls To Just Break-It-Down For Me Like That.

The Best Way To Thank Him, However, Would Be To Excel.

I’m NOT SURE I Can.

I AM SURE I Can Try Try TRY.

Rest Easy, My Peeps.

Friday Is Here.

The Song Stuck In My Head: “MAYBE BABY” by BUDDY HOLLY & THE CRICKETS (1957)

“…Well You Are The One That Makes Me Glad

And You Are The One That Makes Me Sad

When Someday, You Want Me

Well, I’ll Be There

Wait And See…”

Buddy_holly_maybe_baby_45 (via Wikipedia)

TheMAYBE BABYSingle Album by BUDDY HOLLY & THE CRICKETS !!!

“…MAYBE BABY

I’ll Have You

MAYBE BABY

You’ll Be True

MAYBE BABY

I’ll Have You For Me. …”

… … …

The Subject Of Love Has Always Been ULTRA Touchy.

Not Just For Me, But For Most People.

In Regard To MYSELF…

…There Are Some Whom Believe I Don’t Really Love At All…

…Nor Do I Honestly Feel It Like Others Do.

Then, There Are Those Whom Think I Love Waaaaay Tooooo Much.

And THEN, There Are Those Who Couldn’t Honestly Care Either Way.

The Truth?

Maybe I Don’t Know How To Truly Express Love…

…But I Know I’m Capable Of Feeling It.

That’s Why Songs Like This One…

MAYBE BABY

by BUDDY HOLLY & THE CRICKETS

…Stick With Me As They Do.

It’s Because I Feel I Understand Them.

I Feel I Understand The Point Of The Song…

…Or At Least What The Songwriter Is Trying To Push As His/Her Point.

The Important Part, However, Is What Point I Take Away From The Song When It’s Over.

What Does It Personally Mean To ME?

That’s The Question.

Everyone Is Different.

Everyone Has Their Own Mind About Things.

What One Song Means To ME May Not Be Exactly What The Same Song Means To YOU.

And I Like That Part.

That Part Makes Me Feel Exceptionally Human.

A Lot Of The Time, I Don’t Feel Human At All.

I Know I AM Human.

I Just Don’t Feel The Same Way As Most People.

At Least, Not The Bulk of The People I’ve Come Across In My Worldly Travels.

To ME…

BUDDY HOLLY Is Singing About The Unobtainable Love Interest That We’ve All Come Across In Our Lives.

Well, A Lot Of Us Have.

The One That You Want Without Question, Even Though You Know You’ll Probably Never Have Them.

But, You’re Patient.

You’re Willing To Wait Them Out.

To See What Happens.

You Already Know Patience Is Not A Virtue.

It’s A Learned AND Honed Skill.

Some Of Us Are Just Better At Waiting Than Others.

I’m Patient…

…But NOT Because I WANT To Be.

It’s Because I Know I HAVE To Be.

And So I Wait.

Impatiently-Patient.

Meaning, I’m OUTWARDLY Patient…

…And INWARDLY I’m Absolutely Freaking-Out.

But Still…

…It DOES Count As PATIENCE.

Right?!

RIGHT!!

An Amazing Song That’s Eating Me Alive: “HIGH COST OF LOW LIVING” by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND (2003)

HIGH COST OF LOW LIVING Is Off Of The ALLMAN BROTHERS BANDs Amazing 2003 AlbumHITTIN’ THE NOTE!!!

…It’s The High Cost…

…Of Low Livin’…

…Ain’t It High Time…

…You Turn Yourself Around…

…Yeah, The High Cost…

Honestly…

…I Don’t Think Much Has To Be Said About This Song…

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Other Than It’s An EXCEPTIONAL Jam.

Period.

Upon First Hearing This Album…

HITTIN’ THE NOTE

…In 2003…

…I Was Totally Blown Away.

I Still Say It’s Arguably In The Top 5 BEST ALBUMS Of This, The 21ST Century.

Period Period.

Each And Every Song Is Brought To Life With Pain-Staking Love And Attention.

The Lyrics Are Crushingly Amazing…

…And The Backing Music Is Right On-Par With Said Lyrics.

Talk About An Exceptionally Personal Ride We’re Being Treated To, Here.

You’ve Gotta Love It When An Artist Reaches Deep Down Inside Themselves And Then Brings Something, Like This Song, Out Into The World For All Of Us.

Love It.

Simply Love It.

You Should Give It A Listen.

I Think It’s One Of Those Jams That Should Be Heard By So Many More People.

It Totally Fell Under The Radar Of Most Folks…

…And That’s Just A Damned Shame.

The Whole Album Is Like This.

Such Personal Details.

Details About A Life Spent In Such A Manner That The Person Is Lucky To Still Be Alive.

I Get All Goose-Bumpy When I Hear Songs Like This One.

To Me…

…It’s THAT GREAT Of A Jam…

…As Are The Rest Of The Jams On This Album.

You Should Check-It-Out Sometime, My Peeps.

Like It Or Hate It…

…It’s An Easy Album To Appreciate, And That’s Fo SHO.

It’s Worth It.

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.

๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

๐Ÿ˜

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…
