Alright, My Peeps…

…Let Me Quickly Say, I Don’t Just Listen To This Song…

FIND ANOTHER FOOL

by QUARTERFLASH

…When Someone Has Treated Me Foolishly And I Wanna Vent.

No.

I Also Listen To This Song When I’m Dwelling Upon MY Foolishness.

We’ve All Been Foolish In Matters Of Love At One Point Or Another.

Most Especially In Matters Of Love, Honestly.

In Fact…

…It’s In Matters Of Love Where I’ve Suffered Through Many MANY Bad Experiences In My 30’ish’ish Years.

And, I’ve Done So ((ALMOST)) Totally Because Of MY Personal Foolishness.

Then Again, Isn’t That Generally How It Goes?

Is That How It Always Goes For You?

How About You??

And You, There, In The Back???

Yes, And YOU, Also?!?!?

Yeah.

That’s Kinda What I’d Figured.

Our Favorite Game As Human-Being’s Is LOVE.

Always Has Been.

Some Will Quip, Its Not A Game!”

To Those People, I Say Good On Ya.”

I Also Say, If You Dont Think It’s A Game, Then Youve Likely Been Hurt, Or Have Hurt Someone Else, While Playing And You Are/Were Pissed About It.”

To Be Honest, My Peeps, I Don’t Know What Else To Call LOVE.

It’s Always Felt Like A Game.

It Has Losers.

It Has Winners.

It Has First Time Players.

It Has Umpteenth Time Players.

It Has Unskilled Players.

It Has Highly Skilled Players.

It Has The Sheer Bliss Of A Solid Victory.

It Has The Horrid Dejection Of A Terrible Loss.

In Short…

…If It Ain’t A Game…

…What Is It?!?

That’s A Question I Sincerely Struggle With.

Honestly, As I Said, I Don’t Know What Else To Call It.

I Was Hoping To Get A Hand From Y’all, In That Regard.

That’s What We’re Here For, Correct?!

A Learning Experience.

I Know That’s A Big Reason I’m Here.

It’s Not The Only Reason, But It’s An Important One.

Fo Sho???

FO SHO!!!

πŸ˜‰Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

LOVE, Whether A Thought OR A Feeling, Perpetuates Foolishness.

We Do So Many Foolish Things Whilst Playing Along.

We Do Things.

Things We Either WANT Or DON’T WANT To Do, All Because Of What We Feel, Or Think We Feel, For Someone, Or Something, Else.

Y’all Know I’m Not Slippin’ You Any Jive.

I’m Callin’ It Like It Is.

The Problem With This Wondrous, Beautiful, Vile, Evil, Amazing Thing We Call Love Is This:

How Do We Know When Were Playing, And How Do We Know When Were Being Played???”

Yeah.

Exactly My Point, My Peeps.

Honestly, You Don’t Know.

You Don’t Know Until Something Eventful Happens.

He Said YES!” πŸ˜€

He Said NO!” 😦

He Said MAYBE SO!” 😐

Any Way It Goes, You Never Know Until Something Happens.

You Never Know Until The Proof Is There.

You Never Know Until It’s Tangible.

And, Even Then, Do You Really Know?

You Think You Do.

Is That Enough?

Sometimes, That Has To Be Enough.

Sometimes, That’s All We Really Have.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

My Advice?

You Kids Just Be Good.

Play Nice.

Try Not To Hurt Anyone, Especially Yourself.

Try Not To Do Anything Toooooooooo Foolish, Ya Hear Me?!?

Now, Go Get ‘Em, Tiger!!!

Good Game… …Good Game.

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

My Morning Mixes: No Coolin’ Down, Just Jammin’ It HARD!

Since It’s Very Brisk Outside This Morning…

…I Decided Not To Fool Around With My Walkin’ Playlist.

I Didn’t Wanna Freeze Me Arse Toooo Much…

…So I Just Loaded-Up On Jammin’ Tunage!

I Tried To Keep My Pace UP UP UP…

…And I Accomplished This With Great Personal Efficiency!

I Led Off With A Double-Shot Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…With…

Next-Up Was Just A Fun Little Jam Called…

POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME

by DEF LEPPARD

…Which Some Of Y’all Might Remember.

((*wink wink*))

It Does Have A Nasty Habit Of Being Played A Little Too Often For My Taste, At Times.

BUT…

…This Morning…

…It Just Felt Like It Had A Place On My Walk.

And So…

…Well…

…It Did.

πŸ˜‰

I Kicked Myself (and my pace) WAY UP With The Next Jam…

DARUDE‘s

SANDSTORM

…A Song That Holds A Very Special Place In My Little World.

It Was Actually My OFFICIAL SONG With Someone Else, Many Many Moons Ago.

I Didn’t Pick-It To Be Our Song…

…But I Was Overruled.

Don’t That Just Go ‘N Figure!?

Sheesh.

Nevertheless…

…It’s A Damn Fine Jam…

…ESPECIALLY When You Wanna Walk FASTER!

…Was Up Next.

I Know, I Know…

…How Do You Follow…

DARUDE

…With…

QUARTERFLASH

?!?

This Is MY Playlist, Dammit, So Don’t Go Hatin’!

(teehehe)

πŸ˜€

Moving On…

…I Threw-Down Some…

POISON

…Next, With…

UNSKINNY BOP

…A Song That Simply Screams FUN…

…And It’s A Damn Fine Walkin’ Tune.

Damn Fine, Indeed.

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

I Was Hurtin’ For A Touch Of…

PETER GABRIEL

…So I Popped-On His VERY Underrated Jam…

STEAM

…Which Is Also One Of His Most Totally Forgotten Jams.

Do You Remember It?!

See.

I Didn’t Think So.

Loser.

πŸ˜‰Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜‰

I’d Been In The Mood For…

EVE 6

…Alllll Morning Looooong…

…So I Treated Myself To Their Best Bester BESTEST JAM…

INSIDE OUT

!! !! !!

WOOT!!!

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€

I Was Totally In Cruise Mode At This Point…

…Though My Ears Were Starting To Hurt From The Coooool Breezes.

So I Decided To Stay In Cruise Mode And Point My Cruise More Homeward.

Following That Nifty Piece Of Ear-Candy, I Went Ahead And Popped On A True Classic Favorite…

LITTLE GREEN BAG

by GEORGE BAKER SELECTION

…And That Did Put A Little More Wiggle In My Walk, I Won’t Deny It.

Mainly Because I Can’t.

I’m Sure Someone Would Have Called Me On It Had I Decided To Play It Cool.

But I’m Not Cool.

Therefore, I Don’t Play Cool.

I Just Am.

What That “Am” Is, However, Remains A Mystery To Me.

I Sincerely Haven’t The Foggiest.

πŸ™‚

I Was Only A Couple Blocks From The House When My Final Jam Was Selected.

I Didn’t Wanna Cool Down, But I’d Been Jammin’ It HARD…

…So I Compromised With Myself.

I Went With A Song That Wasn’t Really A Cool Down…

…Just An EXCEPTIONAL PIECE Of TUNAGE…

PLACEBO‘s

PURE MORNING

By The Time I Hit The Front Steps, I Was READY To Be INSIDE Ye Ole Homestead.

And As I’m Completing This Little Post…

…I Think My Ears Have FINALLY THAWED!

The Rest Of Me Was Pretty Much Fine Already.

But O.M.G. My Ears!

I’ll Have To Remember To Wear Something On Them Next Time.

As I’ve Already Been Told Today…

You Should’ve Worn A Sock-Hat.

😦

I Know I Should Have.

I Just Look Better In Baseball-Caps.

πŸ˜‰

Hope You’re ALL Having A Fine Morning…

…And I Hope Your Friday Goes Just Jim Dandy!

You DID Know It’s FRIDAY…

…Right?!

Good, Good.

Just Checking.

One Can Never Be Toooo Sure, Ya Know?!

Sure You Do.

My Morning Mixes: Friday, Sweet Friday!

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

Hope You’re All Swell.

Me?

Can’t Complain, I Suppose.

Still Got A Bad Headache.

That Part Ain’t So Good.

Nor Is The Muscle Strain On My Right Side.

Otherwise?

Well…

…Otherwise I’m Pretty Hunky-Groovy’ish.

I’m Sure The Headache Is Because Of The Freakin’ Weather.

T’Is Rainy And Humid.

The Air Feels Thick Enough To Cut With A Knife.

No Foolin’, Kiddies.

No Foolin’, Indeed.

HOWEVER…

…Regardless Of Said Headache…

…Or Of Said Muscle Strain…

…Or Of Said Weather…

…I Still Decided To Head-Out On A Walk-About.

I Hadn’t Gone Out-&-About For The Past Couple Days…

…So I Wanted To Make Damn Sure I Went Out-&-About Today.

For Today’s Walk…

…I Didn’t Do The Random Shuffling Of My Walkin’ Tunes.

Instead, I Made-Up A Little Playlist.

Listed Below Are The Songs I Ended-Up Jamming To This Morning.

… … …

I Began The Walk With…

SPECIAL K

by PLACEBO

…Since It’s A Pounding Jam Jam Jam-Type Jam.

It Totally Works At Getting The Blood Pumping…

…And At Getting The Feet Moving…

…Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps.

πŸ˜€

The Second Song On My Playlist Was An Old-School Favorite…

MY BEST FRIEND’S GIRL

And Then, I Went With…

NOTORIOUS

by DURAN DURAN

…Which Is A Totally Fun Jam…

πŸ˜€

I Then Took The Tunage In A Totally Different Direction With…

DON’T LET ME SLIDE

…Since I Just Knew I’d Be In Cruise Mode By This Point In The Walk.

πŸ™‚

QUARTERFLASH

…Was Up Next With…

…Which Is/Was/Always-Will-Be A Personal Favorite!

It Gets You To Steppin’, My Peeps, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜€

I Was Nearing The End Of My Stroll At This Point.

I Knew I Had Time For One OR Two More Jams…

…So I Decided To Kick-It With…

KISS

…And Their Totally Classic Jam…

ROCK BOTTOM

…Which Is Totally My Fave-Fave KISS Jam Of ALL-TIME!

πŸ˜€

And Then, Finally, I Went Into Cool-Down-Mode.

What Better Jam To Cool Down To Than…

BLUE DRESS

by DEPECHE MODE

…Which Is (likely) The Most Forgotten Tune On Their Biggest Album, VIOLATOR.

And That’s A Shame, My Peeps.

It’s A Very Cool Song, Fo FLIPPIN’ SHO!!!

πŸ™‚

… … …

ANWAY, Kiddies…

…I Think It’s About Time For Me To Jump Into The Shower.

So…

…Y’all Should Do Your Best To Take It Easy AND Take Care Of Yourselves.

It’s FRIDAY, Ya Know, So Taking It Easy AND Taking Care Of Yourself Is A Total MUST DO.

Think Y’all Can Handle That?!

SURE YOU CAN!!!

πŸ˜€

Enjoy The Day, Kids.

THE WEEKEND HAS ARRIVED!!!

Well…

QUARTERFLASH

…MODE!!!

Like, For Realz, Kids!!!

And…

QUARTERFLASH

…Has Now Made A Heroic Return To My MP3PLAYER!!!

…Though I Clearly Remember…

FIND ANOTHER FOOL

…And…

VALERIE

…AAAND…

CRUISIN’ WITH THE DEUCE

…Along With The Classic Super-Jam…

HARDEN MY HEART

!!! !!!! !!!

QUARTERFLASH

…Is One Of Those Bands That Seem To Churn-Up Good Feelings…

…Regardless Of When I’m Listening To Them…

…And Regardless Of Which Song Is Actually Playing.

Must Be That Hot Hot HOT ’80s SAX!!!

HARDEN MY HEART

…Was Their Most Popular Jam…

…And Rightly So.

It’s An Amazing Song.

So Amazing…

…In Fact…

…It’s Been Playing About In My Brain Since Its Rediscovery The Other Day.

The Only Song From…

QUARTERFLASH

…I’d Say Could Come Close To Rivaling…

HARDEN MY HEART

…Would Be The Wonderful Wonderful Jam…

FIND ANOTHER FOOL

…Which I’m Already Thinking About Blogging About!

(teehehe)

πŸ˜‰

Listening To…

QUARTERFLASH

…Reminds Me A Bundle Of My Childhood.

My Father Simply LOVED Them.

So Much So, It Was One Of The Very First CD’s He Purchased During The 1980s.

I Keep Trying To Tell Folks That…

…When It Comes To Music…

…I Was Raised Right.

And I Sincerely Believe That Is So.

Having A Family That Truly Considered Quality Music To Be An Essential Of Daily Living…

…I’ve Always Considered Myself Very Lucky.

While Most Kids Were Trying To Rebel From The Music Of Their Parents…

…I Chose To Embrace It.

Granted…

…That Decision DID Net Me More Detractors Than Supporters…

…But I Really Don’t Give A Rip.

I Didn’t Give One Then…

…And I Sure As Can Be Don’t Give One Now.

I Like What I Like.

Just Like You…

…And You…

…And Even You In The Back.

Period.

What More Is There To Be Said, My Peeps?

Not Much, Eh?

Good.
