Ending The Summer Of Life-Support With An Amazing Song: DEPECHE MODE’s Cover Of “SO CRUEL” !!!

We Crossed The Line

Who Pushed Who Over?

It Doesnt Matter To You

It Matters To Me.

Were Cut Adrift

Were Still Floating.

Im Only HanginOn

To Watch You Go Down

My Love.

I Disappeared In You

You Disappeared From Me.

I Gave You Everything You Ever Wanted

It Wasnt What You Wanted.

The Men Who Love You

You Hate The Most.

They Pass Right Through You

Like A Ghost.

They Look For You

But Your Spirits In The Air.

Baby, Youre Nowhere.

Oh Ooo Oh

Love, You Say In Love Their Are No Rules.

Oh Ooo Oh

Sweetheart, Youre SO CRUEL. …”

DEPECHE MODE

Alright, MyΒ  Peeps, I Totally Admit I’ve Never Been The Biggest Fan Of Cover-Songs.

Occasionally, However, One Will Pop-Up.

Those Rare Few Are Generally Versions I End-Up Enjoying Much More Than The Original.

It, Honestly, Doesn’t Happen Often At All.

But, In Regard To This Particular Song…

SO CRUEL

…I Prefer This Version 10-Fold Over The Original.

Perhaps My Love Of All Things DEPECHE MODE Has Clouded My Judgment?

Nah.

I Don’t Think So.

πŸ˜‰

As I’ve Said…

…This Has Been The Summer Of “Life-Support” For “You Jivin’ Me, Turkey?”…

…And That Is Now Coming To An End.

It Has Been A Wonderful/Horrid Summer…

…Loaded With Tons Of UPS And DOWNS.

I Haven’t Been Working Very Much On The Blog, Aside Of Putting Pen-To-Paper And Writing-Out Some Ideas For Things To Work On.

And Now, As Of This Morning, I Feel Like I’m Ready To Start Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things.

I Hope The Summer Months Have Treated Y’all Very Well, My Peeps.

And, I Sincerely Hope You’re Ready For Me To Get Back To Work.

I May Be A Tad Rusty…

…But I’m Sure I’ll Be Able To Manage Just Fine.

No Worries, Kiddies.

No Worries.

πŸ™‚

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Ladies And Gentlemen…

…”You JivinMe, Turkey?” Has Just Crossed The 200,000 HITS Mark.

I Said I Wouldn’t Make A Big Deal Out Of Milestones Anymore, AND I’m Not.

But, I Did Feel It At Least Worth Noting.

Wouldn’t You?

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

={200,000}=

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

NICE!!!

Thank You, My Peeps!!!

You Already Know How Much I Appreciate It.

More Work To Come In The Morning.

I’m Inspired, Tonight.

πŸ˜‰

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

150,000 HITS! That’s Like… …Well… …A LOT Of HITS!!

ROCKY III (screenshot)

WOOHOO!!!

Thank You, My Peeps, For Making Today Extra Special.

It Was Already A Unique Day.

12/12/12

Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

I Love Piddling With My Blog, As You’re All Very Aware.

It’s The Fact You Keep Coming Back That Makes Me Want To Continue On With My Piddling Ways.

150,000 HITS.

Wow.

Really.

Like

Wow.

Who’d Of Thunk It, Ya Know Ya Know?!?!

Exactly.

I Suppose You Knew It All The Time.

Maybe?

We’re Rollin’ With Maybe!!!

THANK YOU, Again, MY PEEPS!!!

ONWARD!!!

“Oh Insomnia, Why Must You Love Me, Or Is It Hate Me, So SO MUCH?!?” –BRADLEY

-=BRADLEY=-

-=(aka SADLY FOREVER SLEEPLESS)=-

I Sat Down To Write… …And Got Lost In Thought… …AGAIN!

This Is Happening Far Far FAR TOOOOOO OFTEN.

Period.

I Think Of Something I Wanna Write About…

…Then Get Muddled-Up Thinking About A Billion Other Things.

What About This?!

What About That?!

How Did I Manage This?!

What The Hell Is This?!

Why The Hell Am I Thinking About This?!

And On…

…And On…

…And On And On And On!

Grrr.

Drives Me Crazy!

Well…

…Crazier.

I’m Already Carting Enough Crazy Around With Me To Convert A Small City.

I Wish I Were Joking About That…

…But…

…Alas….

…I’m Not.

Hell, I’m Certified!

I’ve Got The Paperwork To Prove It!

Do YOU!?

See.

I Win.

Again.

Though, I’m Not Sure That’s Something I’d Really Wanna Claim As A Grand Victory, Ya Know?!

Sheesh.

ANYWAY…

…The Past Few Days Have Not Treated Me Well.

Being Ill Is An Understatement.

Goddamn Sinus-Infection.

They’re Bastards From Hell, I Swear!

So Not Only Is My Head Plugged AND Pounding…

…But It Forces Me To Breathe Through My Mouth.

What Does That Amount To?!

YEP…

…DRY MOUTH.

😦

Something I Sincerely Can’t Stand.

So I’ve Been Drinking My Weight In Water…

…And Lemonade.

I Simply LOVE Lemonade.

Must Be The Southern Portion Of My Upbringing.

That Side Of The Fam Was ALWAYS Big Into The Lemonade.

And The Sweet-Tea.

Love That Sweet-Tea.

Wait.

Why Am I Talking About Lemonade And Tea?!

Sheesh.

SEE!

I’m Just Rambling!

Dammit.

Someone Really Needs To Step-In And Stop Me When I Start That Shit.

I Don’t Mind It, But Everyone Else Seems To Hate It.

I CAN’T HELP IT!

I’m Long-Winded!

MY BAD!!!

😦

The Point Of All This Was For Me To Tell You WHY I’ve Been In Reblog-Mode.

It’s Simply Because I Haven’t Felt Great.

And Haven’t Felt Up To Writing, As I Am Now.

And NO, I’m Not Feeling Any Better Right Now.

But I Felt I MUST MUST MUST Get Something Out There To Explain My Recent Actions.

I Simply LOVE The Reblog Option.

When I Don’t Feel Quite Right…

…I Reblog.

Plain And Simple.

It Just So Happens People Have Been Talking About Things In Their Blogs That Sincerely Interest Me.

So…

…I Kinda Figure Other Peeps Might Also Be Interested.

Am I Right?!

Are You Interested?!

I Sure As Shit Hope So.

Otherwise, What’s The Point?!

I Don’t Want To Post Things Peeps Don’t Care About…

…But Sometimes That’s An Impossible Task.

Sheesh.

I’m Doing It Again.

I’m Rambling.

I Really Should Get That Part Of My Brain Checked-Out.

There Must Be A “Rambling OFF Button” Somewhere.

No One Has Been Able To Find Mine…

…Yet.

Maybe One Day?!

Maybe, Indeed.

πŸ˜€

Anyway, Kiddies…

…I’m Tired.

I Need A Rest.

I Haven’t Been Sleeping Very Well During My Current Ills.

It’s Hard To Sleep When You Can’t Breathe Through Your Nose.

This Is Something I’m VERY SURE Y’all Can Identify With.

It’s A Pisser, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

SO…

…I’m Going To Put On A Movie…

…I’m Going To Put My Feet Up…

…I’m Going To Relax To The Max…

…And I’m Going To Try My Best To NOT Do Anything Of Mention.

I Figure If I’m Not Doing Anything Worth Mentioning…

…Well…

…Ya Know…

…Perhaps I Won’t Mention It.

πŸ˜‰

What Movie Shall I Watch?!

I’m Thinking…

SOMEONE BEHIND THE DOOR

(1971)

…Starring…

CHARLES BRONSON

…And…

ANTHONY PERKINS

!!! !!!

-<<{http://youjivinmeturkey.com/2012/03/19/you-wanna-know-whats-on-eh-ever-heard-of-someone-behind-the-door-1971/}>>-

Sound Good To You?!

GREAT!!

Sounds Good To Me, Also!!

So Let’s Chill, My Peeps.

Let’s Put Up Our Feet.

Let’s Relax.

Let’s Get Lost In The World That Is Cinema.

Ready?!

Aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnd….

…GO!

πŸ˜€

Friends… Bloggers… Countrypersons… Lend Me Your Reading-Glasses!

As Some Of You May Have Noticed…

…I’ve Been In A Sort Of “Creative-Funk” Of Late.

I’ve Had So Much On My Mind…

…So SO Much, In-Fact…

…That I Sincerely Feel My Blog Has Been Suffering For It.

I’ve Felt Kinda Lost.

I’ve Felt Kinda Overwhelmed.

I’ve Felt I Could/Should Be Doing More.

So SO Much More.

It’s October…

…Which Is Usually My Favorite Month Of The Year…

…And I’ve Spent The Bulk Of It Depressed As Shit.

I’m Not Sure What To Make Of It.

I Mean…

…Yeah, I Know I’ve Had Some Dental Issues That Have Curbed My Little Joy-Ride Several Times…

…And I’ve Been Dealing With A Horrid Bout Of Loneliness…

…But Neither Of Those Are Quality Excuses.

Right Now…

…At This Moment In Time…

…I’m Also Dealing With The Reality That My Cat…

MISSY

(aka MYSTIQUE)

…Is Nearing Death.

She’s Been Very Sick For A Couple Weeks…

…And There’s Really Nothing I, Nor Anyone Else, Can Do For Her.

She’s Stopped Eating, Now.

Her Systems Are Shutting-Down.

She Just Wants To Lay Down, Anymore.

She’s Lost Her Will To Live, Or So It Seems, But I Can’t Bring Myself To Have Her Simply “Put-Down” As The Vet Would Say.

I’ve Never Been As Attached To Any Pet As I Have Been Toward Her…

…So That I Do Know Has Added To This “Funk” I’m In.

Things Are Just Starting To Snowball.

My Hair Is Long, Now.

Longer Than It’s Ever Been.

I’m About Halfway Into Having A Full Beard Again.

As Grandma Would Say, I Look Like A “Ragamuffin” Or Something To That Effect.

I Can’t Go On My Mind-Clearing-Walks Because My Feet Have Dried-Out And Split-Open On The Bottoms In Multiple Places (F-in OUCH!).

My Mouth Hurts…

…And There Are More Dental Appointments On The Horizon.

Years And Years Of Puking-My-Guts-Up On A Daily Basis Has Simply DESTROYED My Teeth.

They’re Weak.

They’re Brittle.

They Break Like It’s Nobody’s Business.

They Make Me Horridly Self-Conscious.

Especially In This Day And Age Where Everyone Strives For That Perfect Smile…

…Ya Know…

…The One I Used To Have.

I Really Could Go On And On, But I’ll Digress From That Point.

PUT THIS…

…ALL OF THIS…

…TOGETHER…

…And It Works-Out To A Simple Answer:

October Is Now My LEAST Favorite Month.

Period.

At Least…

…This October Is.

Perhaps Next Year Will Be Better.

I Sincerely Doubt It Will Be Better…

…But That Doesn’t Mean I’m Not HOPING It’ll Be Better.

I Just Need To Find A Way To Snap-Out-Of-It Somehow.

Ya Know Ya Know, My Peeps?!?

I Just Haven’t Yet Figured-Out The SOMEHOW Part.

I Just Know I Have To Have My “A”-Game Grooving By This Time Next Week.

I’m Taking A Weekend Trip To Chicago, Next Weekend.

My BFF Lives There…

…And I Haven’t Seen Him For Nearly THREE (3) Years.

His Brother…

…My Other BFF…

…Is Picking Me Up Friday, And We’re Making The Drive.

I’m Super Stoked About That…

…Though I Admit The Bulk Of My Excitement Is Buried Deep Down Inside Me.

You Know Me…

…It’s Not Easy For Me To Outwardly Show My True Emotional States.

But I DO Promise Y’all I’m Looking Forward To The Trip With Anxious-Anticipation.

I Just Don’t Want To Show-Up On His Doorstep In A Severely Depressed State Of Heart And Mind.

ANYWAY…

…I Think I’m Going To Shut-Up, Now.

No One Likes Reading A Blog Where The Author Just Sits About And Rambles On About His Pathetic-Excuse For A Life.

So I’ll End My Ramble.

Just Please Please PLEASE, My Peeps, Take Good Care Of Yourselves…

…And Take Good Care Of Each-Other.

I’m Sure I’ll Be Back To Ramble With Y’all Again.

Hopefully Very Soon.

L8r L8r, Tater-Tots.

Sooo…

…In Case You Didn’t Gather This From The Headline To This Bloggin’ing…

…I’m Now OFFICIALLY Part Of The…

100,000-HITS-CLUB

!!! !!! !!!

That’s Right, My Peeps…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…Is Now Among The Ranks Of The Established Greats!!!

WOOHOO!!!

I Told Y’all I Wouldn’t Be Doing Anymore Milestone Pieces Until AFTER…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…Had Officially Made It To 100,000 Hits.

Well…

…The 100,000TH Hit Came Yesterday Evening…

…And I’d Been Wracking My Brain All Night…

…Thinking Thinking Thinking…

…And…

…Tinkering Tinkering Tinkering…

…With All Sorts Of Ideas On How To Celebrate.

By The End Of The Night…

…Yeah…

…I Had Nothing.

Couldn’t Think At All, Anymore.

My Body Was Exhausted…

…But My Brain Was Nearly On Life-Support.

I Just Didn’t Know How I Wanted To Do This Thing.

Sooo…

…I Laid Down And Went To Bed…

…Thinking MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE A Fresh Start In The Morning Would Help Me Figure-Out Exactly What I Wanted To Do.

After I Awoke…

…I Popped-On Some Of My Favorite Tunage…

…And I Began To Think…

…And Think Think Think…

…And Eventually It Came To Me!

I Shouldn’t Do Anything Super Special At All!

I Should Do A Post As I Always Do…

…But Add The Fact I’m Now Batting A 100,000 For The Season.

And So, That’s What I’m Doing.

πŸ™‚

CHARISMA

by KISS

…Just Felt Right.

It Felt Like The Perfect Song To Go Along With The Spirit Of What I Wanted To Say.

I Don’t Know If It’s My “CHARISMA” That Keeps People Coming Back…

…Or…

…Perhaps…

…They’re Just Curious To See What The Hell I’m Gonna Talk About Next.

For Those Of Y’all Who Have Been With Me Since The Beginning Of This Thing…

…Yeah…

…I’m Sure It’s Been An Oddly Fun’ish Adventure.

There’s No Real Rhyme Or Reason To My Madness…

…This Blog Is Just A Reflection Of The Conflict Within My Twisted Brain.

I Find Staying FOCUSED…

…In ALL Of Its Forms…

…Is Something I Can Rarely Do.

Today I’m Over Here…

…Tomorrow I’m Over There…

…The Next Day I’m On The Friggin’ Moon!

I Would Apologize For That…

…BUT…

…To ME…

…That’s Part Of The Reason Y’all DO Continue Coming Back.

So…

…Thank You, My Peeps.

Thank You For Sticking With This Little Roller-Coaster IΒ Affectionately Call…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…A True Love Of My Life…

…FO SHO.

πŸ™‚

CHARISMA

…Is…

…Honestly AND Truly…

…My FAVE FAVE Track On Their 1979 Album…

DYNASTY

…Though It’s One Of Their Least Known Jams.

Purest Fans Of…

KISS

…Didn’t Care Much For This Album.

In Fact…

…This Is The Album Where The Term…

KISSCO

…Comes From.

Meaning…

…True Fans Of Classic KISS Music Felt The Band Had…

“Sold Out”

…Because The Album Really Does Have An Almost Disco Like Quality And Sound.

No Foolies, Kids.

I Know A Bundle Of KISS Fans Who Simply HATE HATE HATE This Entire Album.

But Then…

…You Have Fans Like Myself…

…Who…

…Honestly AND Sincerely…

…LOVE This Album.

.Period.

BUT…

…Even With Classic Tracks Like…

I WAS MADE FOR LOVIN’ YOU

(generally considered "The Best" song on the album)

&

2,000 MAN

&

SURE KNOW SOMETHING

…My Favorite Has Always Been…

CHARISMA

πŸ˜€

T’Is A Simple Jam, Yes…

…But It’s Still “MY FAVORITE”…

…And I Say That Very Easily.

It’s BOTH A Great Walkin’ Jam AND A Great Driving Jam.

So It’s One I Think Y’all Should Check-Out If You Ever Get The Chance.

It’s All About FUN, My Peeps.

FUN Is The Name Of The Game, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

πŸ˜€

Anyway, My Peeps.

I Once Again Want To Say THANK YOU For Continuing To Check-Out…

YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?

…And I Sincerely CANNOT WAIT To Get Going On My Next 100,000!!!

As A Matter Of Fact…

…I’m Already Into The Next 100,000.

SO PLEASE…

…Please Please Please…

…Keep On Comin’ Back, Y’all!!!

I May Not Be “THE BEST” At All Of This…

…But I DO Have THE MOST FUN!!!

I Just Hope I Can Keep’er Chuggin’ Along.

And I Honestly Think I Will!!!

With All Of Your Help And Support…

I KNOW I WILL!!!

πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜€

A Quickie For My Peeps…

…As I Just Really Wanted Y’all To Know I Haven’t Gone Away.

I Continue To Live And Breathe, It’s Just Not So Easy.

I’ve Had A Headache For Over A Week, Now.

So It Really Pains Me To Sit Here And Stare At This Bloody Computer Screen.

I’ve Also Been Using What Energy I Have Left In My Proverbial Tank To Aide In Taking Care Of My Grandfather (aka Paw).

So I Simply Haven’t Had The Free Time To Indulge Myself In My Little Bloggin’ing World.

I’m Hoping Things Will Slow Down Soon, And I’ll Be Back Here To Work For Y’all.

Right This Moment, What I Need Most Of All Is A Damned Decent Walk-About.

Perhaps, Afterward, I Shall Be Inspired Enough To Put Something Together For You, My Peeps.

For Now…

…For Right Now…

…Please Just Accept My Apologies For Not Having Been Around As Much.

I Ain’t Dead…

…Yet…

…And I Do Still Feel My Passion For Writing For The Enjoyment Of All Concerned.

It’s Just Been Super Hard To Find BOTH Time AND Opportunity.

When I’ve Got One, I Never Seem To Have The Other.

Drives Me Crazy, As I’m Sure Y’all Can Easily Relate.

So…

…My Peeps…

…Please Do Continue Looking Forward To Future Posts From Moi.

I’ll Be Taking Care Of Paw Again, This Afternoon.

Perhaps He Will Just Take One Of His Naps, And I’ll Be Able To Churn Out SOMETHING Worth A Glance OR A Read.

I Do Love Ya, My Peeps, And I Appreciate Your Time AND Your Patience In This Matter.

As The Song Goes…

-“We’ll Meet Again…

…Don’t Know Where…

…Don’t Know When…

…But I Know…

…We’ll Meet Again…

…Some Sunny Day…“-

How Very VERY Fitting, Eh!?!

Yeah…

…Made Me Smile, Also.
