Multipurpose-Post: The State Of My Union, Part I

Good Morning, My Peeps.

How’s Things?

All Swell In Your Worlds?

Honestly, Things Have Been A Bit Odd Of Late Within My Own.

I’ve Been Going Through A Bout Of Some Pretty Extreme Personal-Depression That Has Been Sapping And Corking My Creative Juices.Β  It Happens To Us All At Some Point, Or At Least Happens To Those Of Us Intelligent Enough To Understand Our Own Situations.

My Life Situation Just Plainly Sucks.

Period.

I’m Trying To Take The High-Road. I’m Trying To Keep My Head Above The Water I Seem To Endlessly Be Treading. I’m Trying To Carry-On In The Only Way I Know How.

I Just Haven’t Felt Like Writing.

Not. At. All.

As I Said To Someone Earlier…

“…I pick-up my pen, I put it to the paper, but nothing comes out. I’ve just been so caught-up in personal emotional BS that everything else has taken a back seat, so to speak. I know I’ll find my voice again… …it’s just not at this moment.”

And Then It Happened, My Peeps.

I Awoke This Morning, And The First Thing I Wanted To Do Was Sit Down And Start Writing.

So, Here I Am. Writing To Y’all, Hoping Things Come-Out Right.

I Truly Have A Ton To Say, Yet Know I Can’t Say Most Of It.

Not Yet, Anyway.

Why?

Because, I Don’t Rightly Know How Some Things Are Going To Play-Out.

It’s Hard To Write About Something When All The Facts Aren’t In.

I Just Know I’m Unhappy.

Honestly, Truly Unhappy.

Not In Every Aspect Of My Life, But In Enough Of Them To Cause All Of This Mental/Emotional BS.

Life Continues To Throw Me Curveball After Curveball, And I’m Really Starting To Get Sick Of It.

Sadly, There’s Nothing I Can Do About That Other Than Continue To Take It All.

But, Changes Are Coming.

Things Are Happening.

While My Personal-Opinion Of Myself May Not Be Very High At The Moment, I’m Starting To Figure My Shit Out.

I’m On The Verge Of A Major Break-Out, Or So It Feels.

While Some Might Crack Under So Much Personal Pressure, I’m Fighting Back.

I’m Fighting Back Hard, My Peeps.

Life Is Giving Me Both Barrels, And I’m Doing Everything I Can To Give ‘Em Right Back.

What Else Can I/Could I Do, My Peeps?!

I’m Not Going To Lay Down And Die.

I’m Not Going To Let The World Rape Me, And Take Away What Little I Do Have.

I’m Not Going To Stop Fighting My Fight.

Period.

I Just Don’t Want Y’all To Worry About Me.

I Don’t Want Y’all To Waste Your Time And Energy On Something So Frivolous.

I’ll Get It All Worked-Out.

It’s Just Going To Take Some Time.

Lucky For Me, I Have All The Time In The World.

So, We Shall See How This All Pans-Out.

If You Wanna Cross Your Fingers For Me (you know, for good luck and such) Then You’re More Than Welcome To Do So.

Down, But Not Out.

That’s Me.

… … …

The Other Purpose Of This Little Posting Is To Celebrate Something Very VERY Special.

I Just Reached Another Personal Milestone With This Little Blog.

Which Milestone Is That, You Ask?!?

1,000 FOLLOWERS!!!

That’s What!!!

Put THAT In Your Collective Pipe And Smoke It, My Peeps!!!

BAAM!!!

1,000 FOLLOWERS!!!

Seeing That Made Me Smile Like Nobody’s Business, Fo SHO!

I Always Kinda Figured I’d Make It To This Stage, Or At Least Did At One Point.

Then I Started Sloughing-Off.

Once That Happened, I Wasn’t Sure I’d Ever Make Here.

But YOU, My Peeps, YOU Kept Coming Back.

New People Kept Showing Up.

The Blog Perpetuated.

We’re Over 1,000 Strong, Now, Kiddies.

Isn’t That Just F-in’ A-MA-ZING?!?!

Good.

I Totally Agree.

πŸ˜€

I’m Going To Leave You With The Song Of My Morning.

I Don’t Rightly Know How Relevant It Is To My Before Mentioned Topics, But It’s The Song I’m Addicted To, Today.

Ever Heard This One?

YOU GOT IT

by ROY ORBISON

???

Great!!!

I Knew A Lot Of You Would Know It, And I Was Banking The Bulk Of You Would Enjoy It.

It’s One Of ROY ORBISON‘s More Peppy, Upbeat Numbers.

I Know, Most Of You Have Only Heard Me Play His Slower, Slightly More Depressing Tunes…

…But NOT Today.

I Do Sincerely Hope You Enjoy It, Kiddies.

And THANK YOU.

THANK YOU For Continuing To Support Me…

…To Support This Blog…

…To Give Me An Outlet Where I Can Honestly Get Something Back.

I Derive So Much Pleasure From Talking To Y’all, Reading Your Work, Exchanging Comments, Ideas, Etc Etc.

Honestly, I Love It.

Fo F-in’Β  SHO, My Peeps.

πŸ˜‰Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜‰

It’s FRIDAY, Kiddies.

The Weekend Is Upon Us.

Let Us All Try To Make It A Good One.

I’m Going To Do My Very Best, And Trust Y’all Will Be Doing The Very Same.

Take Care, My Peeps.

Try To Be Good.

See Me Soon, And Talk To Me Sooner.

The Song Stuck In My Head: “CRYING” by ROY ORBISON (with k.d. lang (1987))

orbison-lang (via www.streamingoldies.com)

“…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-

A 12-Song Music Mix I’ve Been Using For Mental / Physical / Emotional Time-Outs

If I Learned Anything From My Upbringing, It’s That Time-Outs Are Essential To Life At Times.

When The Things You’re Doing, Working-On, Etc Etc, Are Getting Tooo Personally Pressing, Or Possibly Worse, It’s Time For A Time-Out.

For ME…

…Time-Outs Were Originally Used As A Punishment.

Being ADHD Out-The-Ass…

…I Found Them Excruciating.

Sit Down.

Be Quiet.

No Doing Nothing.

No TV.

No Music.

No Video Games.

No Books.

No Nothing.

Just Sit There.

They Never Lasted Longer Than 15-Minutes, But Those Were The Worst 15-Minutes In History Each And Every Time They Were Experienced.

Now, However, They Are An Essential Tool In Learning Something…

…Anything.

At Least, Anything Deemed Important Enough To Truly Truly Remember Remember.

Period.

Now My Time-Outs Include Music.

With That One Little Tweak, I Totally Revolutionized The Whole Concept Of Personal Time-Outs For ME/MYSELF.

So, Here’s My Current Time-Out Music Mix.

Music DOES Save Lives.

Always Has.

Always Will.

At Least, I Would HOPE So.

Wouldn’t You?!

“…LAST NIGHT

Thinkin’ ’bout LAST NIGHT

LAST NIGHT

Think’ ’bout LAST NIGHT…”

LAST NIGHTIs Just One Of The Many Personal Favorite Jams From The 1988 AlbumTHE TRAVELING WILBURYS VOLUME 1By THE TRAVELING WILBURYS !!!

“…I Was Feelin’ No Pain

Feelin’ Good In My Brain

I Looked In Her Eyes

They Were Full Of Surprise

LAST NIGHT

Talkin’ ’bout LAST NIGHT

LAST NIGHT

Talkin’ ’bout LAST NIGHT. …”

<<<<<>>>>>

<<<<>>>>

<<<>>>

I Awoke Very VERY Early This Morning.

No Real Rhyme Nor Reason For It.

Just Another Sleepless Night.

One Would Think I’d Be Used To It By Now.

Honestly…

…I Don’t Know If Anyone Ever Gets Used To It.

BUT…

…Regardless Of Being Used To It Or Not…

…Here I Am…

…Writing About It To Y’all.

I Had This Song In My Brain Yesterday Evening.

LAST NIGHT

by THE TRAVELING WILBURYS

It Is Simply A Fun Little Tune.

There’s Nothing Really Special About It, Other Than Who It Was Performed By.

I Just Love Love LOVE Me Some…

TRAVELING WILBURYS

…Without A Doubt And Totally Fo SHO, My Peeps.

LAST NIGHT

…Is Performed By The Whole Group…

ROY ORBISON

TOM PETTY

BOB DYLAN

JEFF LYNNE

…And…

GEORGE HARRISON

…Although Most Of The Vocal Portions Are Either…

ROY Or TOM

!!! !!!

πŸ˜€

Can’t Beat That With A Stick At K-Mart, Can Ya!!?!

EXACTLY!!!

You Surely Can’t, My Peeps, You Surely Can’t.

πŸ˜‰

So, When I Awoke So Damned Early This Morning…

…I Sincerely Couldn’t Wait To Get To My MP3Player So I Could Hear This Crackerjack Of A Tune.

And Now…

…I Am.

And I Have Been.

I Have The Song On Repeat, Actually.

I Didn’t Wanna Stop Listening To It Until I Finished My Post.

Call It A Personal Form Of Quality Inspiration.

πŸ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…’Tis Nearing The Dawn, Now.

Who Needs Another Hot Cup-O-Joe?!

(*Points Lovingly At Self With Both Thumbs*)

THIS GUY!!!

πŸ˜‰

Damn Skippy, My Drippies!!!

Hopefully This Will Help Your Morning A Little Bit.

It’s Just Something That Made Me Smile…

…And I Thought It Could Do The Same For Y’all.

I Hope I Was Right!

It’s The Bitter Way That I Was Told

And I’m Up While The Dawn Is Breaking

Even Though My Heart Is Aching

I Should Be Drinking A Toast To Absent Friends

Instead Of The Comedians.”

THE COMEDIANS

by ROY ORBISON

*** *** *** *** ***

Simply An Amazing Song That Is A Truly Forgotten Classic.

I’ll Let The Song Speak For Itself.

I Just Haven’t Been Able To Get It Out Of My Head All Night Long…

…And All The Morning, Thus Far.

Wonderful.

Simply Wonderful.

It’s The Kind Of Song You Honestly Don’t Mind Not Being Able To Get Out Of The Ole Noggin.

I Love It.

So I’m Sharing It With Y’all.

Hope You Love It, Also.

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…

JACKSON BROWNE

T. BONE BURNETT

ELVIS COSTELLO

k.d. lang

BONNIE RAITT

J.D. SOUTHER

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

…And…

TOM WAITS

!!! !!! !!!

ROY Is The Show…

…The Others All Back-Him-Up.

What You Get Is An All-Star Concert For The Ages!!!

It’s Brilliant, My Peeps.

It’s A Concert Film I’d Easily Watch With Anyone Who Might Care In The Slightest.

It’s That Good, Kiddies!!!

*** *** ***

SOOO…

…What Are YOU Watching, Tonight?!

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!

πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: Well, Well, Well!

Hey, Kids, Good Morning.

Well…

…It’s Been A While Since I’ve Done One Of These…

…But This Morning’s Walk Simply Felt Amazing…

(regardless of the light-misty-rainy conditions)

…And I Have My Rockin’ Jams To Thank For It!

πŸ™‚

I Kicked-Off My Walk This Morning With The Song…

WELL, WELL

by BETH HART And JOE BONAMASSA

…As It’s A Truly Wonderful Jam…

…And It Really Gets Me Going.

It Really REALLY Was The Perfect Song To Get The Morning Rollin’!

Her Voice And His Guitar Are A Match Made In Music Heaven, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

πŸ˜€

Up Next…

…Thanks To Mr. MP3Player, And His Wonderful “Shuffle” Button, Was…

A VIEW TO A KILL

by DURAN DURAN

I’ve Said It Before And I’ll Say It Again…

I Know What I Like.

I Know What I Love.

Next Up Was The Classic Favorite…

CRADLE OF LOVE

Nothin’ But The Best Around Here, Eh?!

Eh, Indeed!!

So…

…What Do You Think Came-Up Next?!

Well…

…If You Said…

BLONDIE

…And Their Rockin’ Jam…

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

…You’d Be VERY Correct!!!

πŸ˜‰

Mr. MP3Player Was Really Cranking-Out Some Major Tunage This Morning, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

It’s Been A Long Time Since I’d Listened To A Few Of These Personal Faves.

I Do So LOVE The “Shuffle” Button On This Thing.

I Get A Motley Mix Of Music That’s Better Than Any Mixed Tape Or CD One Could Create.

Period.

Next…

…He Kicked It Down A Notch With…

ONLY THE LONELY

by ROY ORBISON

…Which Is One I’ve Already Blogged About, I Love It So Much.

ROY ORBISON

…Is Hard To Top, That’s Fo SHO.

He’s My Favorite Favorite Solo-Artist Of ALL TIME.

Period Period.

His Music Sincerely Speaks To Me.

I Love His Voice.

I Love His Lyrics.

I Love Everything About His Music.

So This One Was A Totally Great Choice By The Player!!!

πŸ˜€

For The Next Song, I Took Control.

I’d Really Been Wanting To Hear Some…

BILLY JOEL

…So I Thumbed Through My Tunes Until I Settled On…

KEEPING THE FAITH

…Which Just Felt Right.

It’s Very Middle-Of-The-Road In Regard To Its Pace And Rhythm.

Something I Could Just Cruise To For A Few Minutes.

It Really Was An Excellent Choice For What I Was Wanting To Do.

(pats self on the back)

GO ME!!!

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜‰

Following Mr. JOEL, I Popped The “Shuffle” Button Again, And Mr. MP3Player Tossed-Out…

MYSTIFY

by INXS

…At Me, And I Was Hoofin’ It Once Again!

MYSTIFY

…Is Arguably The Best Jam By…

INXS

…Or At Least, To Me It Is.

If It’s Not The Best…

…I’d Still Call It My Favorite.

Such A Classic Jam, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜€

I Decided To Cut My Wheels And Head On Home, At This Point.

I Knew I Had Time For At Least Two More Songs…

…And My Player Was Only Too Happy To Oblige.

He Went With…

THE OLD MAN DOWN THE ROAD

by JOHN FOGERTY

…Which Is An Excellent Choice For Walking Purposes.

It’s Got A Wonderful Beat That You Can Step To.

It’s One Of Those Songs That Make Walking A Pleasure.

πŸ™‚

For My Final Jam, I Selected It Myself.

I’d Been In The Mood To Hear It All Morning…

…And I KNEW It Was The Perfect Jam To Finish-Up With.

What Was It, You Ask?!

Well…

…It Was…

STANDING OUTSIDE A BROKEN PHONE-BOOTH WITH MONEY IN MY HAND

by PRIMITIVE RADIO GODS

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

Now Tell Me That One’s Not The PERFECT JAM To Finish-Up With!

Go On…

…Tell Me!

πŸ˜‰

A Totally Wonderful Song To Cool Down With, My Peeps, Fo Flippin’ SHO!!!

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€

And That’s It, My Peeps.

T’Was A Great Walk.

As I Said, It Felt Amazing.

I Needed It Bad.

Always Helps To Clear The Mind A Bit.

Sometimes, That’s All Anyone Really Needs.

A Good Walk…

…With Some Great Tunes.

Sounds Like The Perfect Way To Spend A Morning, Doesn’t It!?

DOESN’T IT!?!

SURE IT DOES!!!

Got Myself A Tad-Bit Of Sleep…

…And Even Now…

…At 3AM…

…I’m Functioning.

Well…

…Sort Of.

I’m Actually In A Pretty Damned Decent Mood.

I’m Not Really Sure WHY…

…I Just Know I AM.

Who’s Gonna Knock That?!

GREAT!!

MEEE NEEEITHER!!

I’ll Take Functioning AND The Pretty Damned Decent Mood ANY DAY!!

πŸ˜€

Sooo…

…When I Awoke This Morning…

…All I Wanted To Do Was Jam To Some Primo-Quality-Tunage.

Cue MP3Player!

(*Cue MP3Player!!*)

The First Song Playing Was…

CRYING

by ROY ORBISON (featuring K.D. LANG)

…Which Is Honestly One Of The Most Beautiful Collaborations In Music History.

Period.

But…

…As I Listened Further Into The Realm That Is ROY

…I Eventually Landed On This One…

IN DREAMS

πŸ˜€

!!! !!! !!!

T’Is An ALL-TIME FAVE-FAVE, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

Plus, I Simply LOVE The Flick…

BLUE VELVET

…Even Though It’s A Tad Touched In The Head.

I Would Call It “Mental Headcase” Of A Flick.

πŸ™‚

Anyone Care To Debate That?!

GOOD.

I Didn’t Think So.

πŸ˜‰

Anyway…

IN DREAMS

…Is An Exceptional Tune That TOTALLY Deserves Your Sweet Sweet Lovin’!

It’s A Long-Term Personal Fave For Myself.

BRADLEY Simply LOVES His ROY ORBISON!!!

Do YOU Enjoy His Music???

I’m Asking Because I’m Damned Curious, To Say The Least.

Anyway Anyway…

I Shall Leave Y’all Be For Now.

Please, My Peeps, Try Your Best To Have A Good Day.

I’m Gonna Be Tryin’…

…Which I Do Believe Has Already Begun!

I Simply LOVE Tryin’!!

Don't YOU, My Peeps?!

SURE YOU Β DO!!!
