Does that not Strike You as a Curious Thing?

[ Previous page » The Place where Imagination becomes Reality (Dec 25, 2017) ]

Did you happen to notice, girly, how I wrote that entry titled » When Justice Comes Out Perverted (March 19) where I write directly to Harvey Weinstein .. something I have never done before.

Harvey Weinstein's accusers tell their stories by Ronan Farrow Oct 23, 2017

Did you notice how that entry came directly after another entry titled » What's it Like to Lie with Hollywood's Hottest Starlet? (Feb 23) .. where I write to your young friend, Dove?

Dove Cameron catches the eye of Bella Thorne

I was thinking about this at the end of the theme where I share my experiences responding to a report of harassment from a pretty, young girl who had complained about her older, male boss.

I was surprised at the size of my own huevos rancheros .. for using such a title. (Of course, I always blame these kinds of things on you, girly.)

But you must admit that this is a ballsy title.

I can tell that me-the-writer has larger huevos rancheros than me-the-person. Because I would normally never pose such a question to a young, industrial-strength hottie.

I'm just being honest here .. about the obvious.

The Place where Imagination becomes Reality

[ This entry originated from a page titled » Are We Really in Love .. or Does it Just Feel that Way? (Sept 9, 2017) ]

» A Function of Being in the Right Place at the Right Time?

Dont you feel, sometimes, that these most improbable of things seem to be very much a function of » being in the right place at the right time?

» The Eddie Glenn Story

Remind me, girly, to tell you the Eddie Glenn story .. which is a story about being in the exact-right place at the exact-right time.

The Eddie Glenn story actually ties into what I was telling Selena .. how you need to keep doing the work .. toward personal growth .. even when it is difficult.

And even when you can't see any immediate advantage to doing so.

The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn

[ This entry originated from a page titled » Some Truly Awesome Wailing in Boston (11.Dec.2016). You must admit that today's entry makes for a cool title. I am very much into cool titles. ]

» There was a Boy

There is a lyric in the song Nature Boy, which I first heard in the movie Moulin Rouge! .. which says » The greatest thing you'll ever learn .. is just to love and be loved in return.

Loving, and being loved in return .. what a rabbit hole that would be. On the one hand, the concept seems so obvious and so simple. But it's not.

The concept itself is simple enough .. the trick is in the execution.

Alien: Covenant

I dont know if it's thee #1 greatest thing ever .. but, it's definitely up there with the greatest things that you can learn. No doubt about it.

I mean, any conversation about values and priorities is naturally going to include a discussion about loving and being loved.

I could so get off on a tangent here. But I'm too smart for that.

Girls Who Inspire You to Up Your Game

[ This entry continues from here » The Games Begin (Sept 3, 2017). ]

Oh, look .. here you are during this pause .. at the 2017 Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball, held at the O2 arena in London on Dec 10.

Taylor during the pause in Ready For It Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball London Dec 10, 2017

This live-pause here feels even more pregnant than the official studio version. It is definitely a stadium-rocking song.

Look at this look that you are throwing here. This must be a very cool pause for you here. The crowd certainly reacts to it.

Look at the look in your eyes here. This is why I grabbed this particular shot.

The look in your eye here says, "I will have this man, and I will have him now. Take him back to room number one and get him ready. And dont be slow about it, either."

» The Endless Compromises that Christians Must Make to Continue Dealing with the Devil

Speaking of fake believers .. what do you think, George, about this interview that Chris Hayes did with Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins?

Where they are talking about McKay's new piece titled » God's Plan for Mike Pence.

God's Plan for Mike Pence by Atlantic writer McKay Coppins

I thought of you, George, when I heard McKay say about Pence (at t=2:45) that »

"He really is a man who believes that he has a sense of destiny about him .. that God wants him in the political realm. And when you think like that, it's easy to make a lot of compromises, and rationalize a lot of things."

Can you see why these statements about Mike Pence make me think of you? (I bet you can.)

The Dark Side of the Morning - Part Two

» Echoes of Dylan's Voice

Speaking of non-linear things .. I noticed that your new song has an interesting title .. that is very close to the title of a Dylan song.

The Ballad of Bob DylanAn oft-covered Dylan song.

Both songs approach the same, or a similar theme.

The song even begins with Dylan-like guitar riffs.

(I like Dylan. You know. This is interesting.)

And your vocals contain a definite country feel.

[ You are from Texas, no?

They say that Texas girls know how to take care of their men.

Is this true?

Then again, Mary Karr is from Texas .. and she freely admits to being not a very nice person. ]

When you sing the words, "had enough" .. you sound like you have really had enough. Very believable.

» Do Women Enjoy Being Pursued by a Man?

Maybe I should start by saying that Charlie Rose seems like the most mild-mannered man .. does he not? He seems nothing like a Harvey Weinstein.

The reason why Charlie's statement struck me is because there is the idea out there that women WANT TO BE pursued .. that they LIKE to be pursued and perhaps NEED to be pursued .. in order to feel comfortable with a man, romantically speaking.

There is also the idea out there that women will even "play hard-to-get" .. in order to see just how much a man really wants her. How much he desires her.

» Acting Unfriendly

Notice the lyrics in Pink's new song, Beautiful Trauma » I made you chase me; I wasn't that friendly.

Pink | Beautiful Trauma

She makes my point for me. (Pink can really sing. She is a real no-shit singer. With the pipes to prove it. Much respect.)

Times are Changing

[ This entry originated here » Aggressive and Predatory Approaches Toward Young, Sexually-Attractive Women - Page One (21.Nov.2017). ]

» Can You Feel It Coming?

On the subject of change .. have you seen Jared's video » Walk on Water (Nov 8, 2017) ?

We are all related

Because the lyrics scream » "Times. Are. Changing."

» Seemingly Separate Things are Actually Different Parts of the Same Thing

Did you know that .. as physicists learn more and more about the nature of our (physical) universe ..

.. they have discovered that what was once seen as being two separate things .. are actually different parts of the same thing? Such as is the case with » spacetime.

In other words, the more we come to know, the more we can see that things are more connected than we thought.

This is why I chose this particular image taken at 2:48 PM in South Dakota .. because this person says, "We are all related."

» Male Pursuit

I noticed that Charlie Rose has been shit-canned from his positions at CBS and PBS for sexually harassing at least eight women. (Which is still less than the dozen women who have accused the President of sexually harassing them.)

Something that Charlie said in his statement struck me.

Charlie Rose says that he felt that he was pursuing shared feelings

Notice in particular how he says that he always felt that he was » "pursuing shared feelings." There is so much that I could say on this subject that I dont even know where to begin.

Gretchen knows what I am talking about here (at t=2:10).

Gretchen Calson was struck by what Charlie Rose said (t=2:10)

And how can you have a conversation about sexual harassment without the woman who drove a stake into the heart of Roger Ailes?

» Better to Fail than Never to Try

This is one of the reasons why I pursued writing. I mean, I could have easily went to another nuclear plant .. if I wanted.

I was running the show there at the best-situated nuclear plant in the country .. making decent bank.

And I had a decent handle on this thing .. but I wasnt even challenged. I'm talking after several years of working out the kinks in the scope and parameters of this newly-created position.

» Challenge Thyself to Better Measure Thyself

There is a thing in the human heart that wants to measure itself .. not necessarily against others, but certainly against its own potential.

If it doesnt challenge you, it doesnt change you (at t=3:36)

I was already bored at what I considered the ultimate contractor position.

Better to fail at the bigger challenge .. my thinking at the time was .. than never to try. I bet that Roxane would agree with me here.
