Lolita and Joyce's Portrait Arrive from Amazon

Rad note » this entry originated from another page. It was moved here to its own, separate entry. (It's a long story.) Here ya go ...

Did I tell you that my new Lolita book just arrived? It came with Joyce's Portrait. I have listened to the audio book of Portrait, but you can't study the text with an audio book.

I especially enjoyed listening to a narrator reading Joyce with a strong Irish accent. It makes you feel like you are actually there in Ireland. The Emerald Isle.

Tunie came back after spending a few weeks there. She said that it was the most beautiful place she has ever been.

And Tunie is the Vacation Queen. She gets around. Particularly during her stewardess days.

(Aurelia has a beautiful Irish accent .. and sparklingly clear articulation. I enjoy listening to her, too.)

From the paperback which just arrived, I couldnt help but notice that the 37-page introduction by Seamus Deane begins like so:

James Joyce | Age 6 (1888)A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) ends with a beginning.

Stephen Dedalus emerges in the last pages of the last chapter as the 'I' who will 'forge .. the uncreated conscience of my race'.

Because this reminds me of what was said about Dostoevsky .. that he was » ".. one of a handful of thinkers who forged the modern sensibility..."

» You Down with That, Lover?

I think this is "the thing" that I want to do with you, girly. One of the things, anyway.

I want to forge a Third millennium sensibility with you. I want to forge the uncreated conscience of my race with you.

While we explore together the entire range of moral experience.

You down with that, lover? You down with that, Ariana? You think you can handle it? Full strength? (I was taking it easy on you before.)

I should probably give you some time to think about it.

» I Dont Want to Hear You Squealing

I dont want to hear you squealing like a girl and whatnot .. because you're so scared.

<ignore this intentional body-text marker>

••• today's entry continues here below •••

If you want easy .. I am not the guy for easy.

How's that sound for a first date? I bet that you have never done such a thing before. If you are going to hang around with me, girly .. and if you insist on being quantumly entangled with me .. then buckle up.

Because you are going to see many things you've never seen before. And you will feel many things that you have never felt before. (At least, that's what everybody keeps telling me.)

This is why everybody has been telling you to give me up. Well, one of the reasons. There are more, of course. Many more.

I'm sure that you have heard the talk going 'round, with folks saying, "Ariana was such a nice girl .. until she got involved with that writer."

» Portrait Centennial

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) by James Joyce2016 (December 29) is the 100-year anniversary of the Portrait book.

[ Ulysses, by the way, was published on 2-2-22, Joyce's 40th birthday.

Random House ranks Ulysses as the #1 best novel of the entire twentieth century. (English language.)

Notice how this page was posted on 2-22-12. ]

Lolita may be ranked the #4 best book of the century, but Portrait is ranked #3.

» Thank God for James Joyce

This book is the reason why I thanked God for James Joyce.

I wasnt trying to .. rather I couldnt help it. That's how grateful I felt.

You know the feeling .. when you learn that there's somebody else out there who is like you.

Somebody who really gets you. I very much like this feeling. Did I say very?

» A Brief Prosperity that Quickly Collapsed into Poverty

The very first page, adjacent to the cover, begins by saying that Joyce was »

"the oldest of ten children in a family which, after brief prosperity, collapsed into poverty."

Without knowing any of the details of his life, I could wax verbose on how this collapse helped to make James Joyce one of, if not thee greatest writer of the century.

I can see now that the writer needs to » come to the end of himself.

And sometimes this takes a while. (But it's rarely a pleasant thing.) Because he needs to be okay with nothing but his words.

» A Writer is Basically Somebody Who Puts Things into Words

See .. a writer is basically somebody who » puts things into words.

The Nature of Creativity and the challenge of con.verting things into language

And to the degree that you-the-person are in the way (.. between the thing and the words) .. this can hinder the writing. I can see that now.

I love James Joyce. He is a writer with the soul of a poet. I love people who make me feel less alone in the world. This is one of the reasons why I love you, girly.

» Oops .. Did I Just Say It?

Oops .. did I just say it? How did this happen? I was being so careful not to say it .. to merely dance around it .. and get close as I could. Without actually saying it.

It's all Joyce's fault .. I'm blaming the whole thing on him. I need to be more careful in the future. It's a slippery slope with you, girly .. and I just slipped.


I almost made it to the end of summer without saying it. The end of summer is little more than a week away. So close.

You cant say that I didnt try, girly. You cant say that I didnt make an effort. Sometimes our best efforts are simply not enough.

» You Somehow Make Me Feel Less Alone in the World

But you do make me feel less alone in the world. So I probably shouldnt be so surprised. I bet that Reese Witherspoon knows exactly what I am talking about here:

Reese Witherspoon is feeling less alone in the world

Probably Rita Ora, too.

Rita Ora | Lonely Together

Hi, Rita. I see you.

» When You Can Feel Singers Singing from Their Hearts

This was a remarkable Vevo performance that you did here .. for a number of reasons.

Rita Ora Let Me Love You Vevo (14 Feb 2019, Valentine's day)

I grabbed this image of you here where you sing "I wanna let you inside." You seemed to cut short slightly the word 'inside.'

I like everything about this song .. especially the way that you are feeling it. This is the reason why I like singers .. because they sing from their hearts.

You should be proud of this performance.

» You Can't Just Decide that You are Going to Make an Intimate Relationship Work Via Sheer Willpower

Your song and your lyrics called to my remembrance a time in my life when I thought I could make an intimate relationship work out of sheer will-power and determination.

But intimate relationships do not work this way. We need to first become the person who fits (naturally) this particular relationship .. with this particular woman.

This is much more difficult .. than trying to force together a relationship for reasons that are not conducive to a loving, intimate relationship.

It is not an easy thing to describe .. trying to make a relationship work .. when we really need to work on ourselves first.

It is a huge subject, but I somehow think that you will feel me here.

Some people would rather you stick needles in their eyes .. than really work on themselves and their issues.

I also thought that it was a nice touch for you to step away from the mic slightly ..

Rita Ora singing Let Me Love You for Vevo on Valentine's day (14 Feb 2019)

.. after singing, "But I say nothing."

» Valentine's Day Treat

I see that you released this song on Valentine's day (14 Feb 2019). I saw my shrink on this day.

He talked to me about things that I was not really ready to talk about. I was very depressed after confronting a difficult part of my reality .. the most difficult part. I could feel the depression.

That same night I got sick as shit .. the lung crud .. which everybody in the house already had. That weekend I was hitting the Ativan.

» The Worst Thing in Life

Robin Williams obviously knows what I am talking about .. when I say that I appreciate people who make me feel less alone in the world.

The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.

This is a thought-provoking quote here from Robin Williams .. especially because he was such a thoughtful and down-to-earth person.

The worst thing in life?

» Say Something

This video from Justin Timberlake » Say Something (Jan 2018) .. this video somehow makes me feel less alone in the world.

Say Something | Justin Timberlake (Jan. 2018) end credits

I can feel myself curious about how they are doing this. I think it is because of all those people who suddenly appear at the end.

That was cool. Let's get this party started right.

It is a wonderfully creative concept video .. for a number of reasons.

Actually, in the very beginning, I see that they call this video a "film." I was struck by this.

See .. if the artist is going to use the term 'film' .. then he is going to need to elevate the art to the level of film.

I was impressed by this thing so much that I grabbed the screen shot of the end credits.

Doesnt it seem like a fun project to work on?

» A Single Uncut Shot

Did you happen to notice that this is a single, uncut shot? That alone makes this music video rare. Perhaps even unique.

I know enough about people who feel passionately about making excellently-crafted films .. to know that this single-shot video gave someone a boner. A filmmaking boner.

Film people get serious boners over this sort of thing.

The camera actually follows him into the elevator. You can hear the sound of the metal door closing.

It would take me too long to explain what effect this kind of thing has in an artist sense .. but it is certainly boner-city.

I think that they have a baseline studio track, and over this they lay the live-audio track. There are many such artistic layers in this video.

I resisted mentioning it .. because I could see how easily I could get carried away. The closer you look, the more fractals you see.

Sometimes I watch this video when I need an artistic pick-me-up.

Noticed how this song has been performed at a community church. And they did a good job, too.

Justin has another video titled Supplies. It is an outstanding video .. for a number of reasons.

The subject is bleak .. so people will not be inspired to watch it as much. But it is a visual accomplishment.

Executing these types of ambitious visions .. this is difficult.

» Organic Love from Organic Writing

Girly, did you notice how naturally and organically that came? That I-love-you. This is one of my signature elements that I try to differentiate my writing with. That authentic aspect.

[ On the subject of differentiating thyself .. back when I was learning about web design and visual metaphor,

I remember choosing the color that I use on the home page .. that blue-green color that I use for the unvisited links and the side-bars.

I wanted something like the color of the glowing Cherenkov radiation. But I also wanted something distinctive.

I wanted a color that you didnt see every day. Why was I looking for such a color? A distinctive color. A signature color. ]

That's not easy to do .. that organic stuff. I have to add my special sauce .. in order to do that.

This obviously means that I must really like you .. and that I'm trying to impress you. Because I see myself breaking out the good stuff for you. The fine linen. Even my signature stuff.

When I write that "I am trying to impress you so much that I am impressing myself," .. this is exactly what I am talking about.

There is nothing quite like that first, authentic 'I love you' .. when it comes organically. Wouldnt you say, girly?

[ I bet that Meghan knows exactly what I am talking about (at t=4:15) ].

Especially when these I-love-you's come because our lover could no longer help themself. And when it becomes obvious that they do indeed love you .. even before they actually declare it verbally. I think you would agree with me here, girly.

Right here, right now .. I think you would agree with me.

Speaking of breaking out the good stuff for you .. have you noticed .. how the phrase "I'm not going to say that I love you..." parallels the title » Not Talking About Writing ?

Heh yourself, girly.

When you can see that it clearly comes from the heart .. and when it contains the thing that you need .. then you know it's not an illusion.

» The Sublimeness of the Natural, Organic Approach

I try to let the things come to me at their own time, in their own way. This works for me .. this natural, authentic aspect to things.

You yourself work for me, girly .. you work well for me. In this natural, organic, authentic sense.

When things come to me in this natural, organic sort-of-way .. uh, I probably shouldnt continue down this path. Down this tangent. I can already see the rabbit hole forming. Right before my very eyes.

This is a dangerous tangent. I can sense the danger. Powerful forces lurk down this path. Overwhelmingly powerful. Easy to get caught up in.

Should we venture down this tangent, girly? I dont want to hear you squealing .. because you are so scaird.

I should probably give you some time to think about it.

» Distinguishing Yourself as an Artist

Let me just say this one thing here, and then get out of this point as quickly as possible.

» I am not a Competitive Writer Like Hemingway

See, Hemingway .. he is a very competitive writer. I am not competitive in the sense that Hemingway is competitive. At least, not in the way I understand him to be from reading his writing and some of the things that he has said along these very lines.

(Are you competitive, girly?)

Hemingway was dressed as a girl for the first five years of his life. Supposedly this was not such a strange thing among wealthy Europeans back during the turn of the century when Hemingway was born.

I could be wrong, but it seems like that would fuck up any guy. And I cant help but feel that this is the reason why Hemingway felt such a strong need to emphasize the macho masculine aspects of his life.

But I do indeed believe that the writer, and any artist, for that matter .. should differentiate themselves. In whatever way they deem proper.

If someone were to ask, "What distinguishes your writing from that of others?" the writer should say, "I'm glad you asked .. let me show you."

[ Tho, it should be obvious .. if they have read your writing, and been exposed to your art. ]

Perhaps I should think about it before I say it, but I feel like my competitiveness comes out in this area of distinguishing yourself. Because this is where you are most being yourself (.. if done right, if done correctly).

» It's All Your Fault, Girly

I joke with you sometimes, Ariana .. that it's all your fault. But really .. it is. Do you know what this means?

Dare we find out where all this danger leads? Are you scared yet? (You probably should be.)

» Not Talking About Lolita

Speaking of launching out on your dangerous tide to discover where this dangerous journey leads .. have you noticed that I havent mentioned (yet) the new Lolita book?

Lolita (1955) by Vladimir NabokovThis is the Fifty-year anniversary book.

Oh, girly .. I can tell already.

From merely glancing at the back cover.

That this is going to be very dangerous.

More dangerous than I could have ever imagined.

"What have I gotten myself into?" I wondered.

I wasnt even trying to read the back cover .. because I knew what might happen.

But I couldnt help myself (.. you know what I'm talking about).

And just like with the earlier dangerous sentence that I read .. about the Existentialists .. my eyeballs seemed to lock on this sentence .. there on the back cover.

I tried, but I couldnt look away. I hesitate to even share with you this sentence .. which is why I first told you about Joyce's Portrait of an Artist.

Because, you can plainly see what happens when I mention ( "ever so briefly" ) dangerous sentences. ( Am I teasing you here, girly? Is this part of my payback? )

» I Saw You on Ellen

Before I get too carried away on this tangent, tho .. because it might take a while .. I should probably mention .. that I saw you on Ellen. Just a short clip.

[ I like Ellen .. because she did the voice of Dory in Finding Nemo.

We must've watched that DVD a hundred times. A story about a dad crossing the entire ocean .. to find his lost son.

A good story. I can relate.

I particularly enjoyed the way she said (about the light in the dark) » "It's so beautiful .. I want to touch it." (t=2:00)

I also have a good story about a root beer float. ]

I'm not even going to mention how good you looked on Ellen's show. I mean .. why labor the obvious?

» Commitment in the Twenty-First Century

But I couldnt help but notice your use of the term » commitment. Because I have been noticing your commitment all along.

Ariana's impressive commitment on display (Hi Drew)

I have been surprised by your commitment. I have been impressed by your commitment. I have even been inspired by your commitment. But most of all .. I have been challenged by your commitment.

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

And I doubt that I am alone in my feelings here.

[ When I think of the term commitment, I think of Fassbender. He brings an impressive professional commitment into play. ]

Assassin Callum Lynch in Assassin's Creed

Because my commitment to a relationship .. and yes, I do indeed commit to my relationships .. I feel that I commit m.o.r.e to a relationship .. than most people do. (Way more.) But I am not other people .. so I cant really be sure.

But we need to know what we are committing to .. right? And this can take some time. I will tell you later .. about the nature of the commitment(s) that I make to my relationships.

Seeing that you obviously understand the nature of commitment, and all that a commitment entails .. how much, do you reckon, that commitment is a function of motivation?

In other words, do you feel that you can maintain a strong commitment to something for which you feel little motivation? Or to something for which your motivation has waned.

This is not a trick question. I am interested in how you see the world. Because it's a perspective that few get to enjoy. And it cant be easy to get there.

Defining Terms » Commitment

Speaking of the nature of the commitment(s) that I make to my relationships .. here is one of the dictionary's definitions of the word:

n. The state of being bound emotionally or intellectually to a course of action or to another person or persons.

Is it just me, girly .. or do you not feel such binding? .. without even trying.

It has been my experience that, when the universe hooks you up, it always does a better job than you couldve done yourself. Way better.

This is always when sex is the best. It is working in a big way.

But I see your commitment .. and the voices remind me from time to time .. of your commitment. It is indeed an impressive thing, your commitment. I can feel something in me respecting you for it.

Ariana the team player sheds diva image

( Dare I say "admire"? Because we always admire in others the qualities and traits that we ourselves lack or find particularly challenging. )

I committed six years of my young life to the military. And few of my early friends made it all the way to the end. So I know a little something about the nature and demands of commitment.

I can feel myself searching for the right way to adapt to your commitment .. in a way that both acknowledges and respects your commitment.

I dont usually do this .. because I'm not usually that impressed with commitments. (This might be why you have been waiting and waiting.) Because I actually feel honored.

» My Folks Didnt Get Me

When I was 9 years old, I asked my folks if I could get a paper route. They said that I was too young.

When I was 10, I asked them again. Again they said I was too young.

When I was 11, when another route became available, I really pestered them about it, and they finally let me get a paper route (delivering the New Haven Register).

But my dad, said, "If you get this paper route, you have to keep it for at least six months."

I had that paper route for 4 years. (There were combinations of dailys and Sunday papers. About 50 dailys and 250 on Sundays. I kept the daily route for 2 years.)

My point here is to say that my dad didnt really know me. He thought I would wimp out after only a short time.

Neither of my folks really got me. I could see them projecting themselves onto me. But I was not them. Not hardly. And thank God for it.

I did not come right out and say to them, "You have shitty values. I reject your shitty values. And I can't wait until I can get the fuck out of here .. away from your shitty values." But you can bet your ass I was thinking it.

» The Place Where You Start to Learn Cool Things About Yourself

See .. with me (this is how I work, girly) .. I move toward this thing that I am feeling. Right now, you are obviously this thing that I am feeling. And as long as this thing (this relationship with this person) works for me .. I can proceed.

Now, sometimes this thing might give us reason for pause. But sometimes they dont. Sometimes we find no reason for pause. This is where you really learn a lot about yourself.

Because this is where the thing becomes a different thing. And you naturally find yourself wondering, "Do I have what it takes to become this new thing?" And sometimes we surprise ourselves .. that (strange as it might seem) we » do indeed have what it takes.

This is kind where I am starting to feel with you .. like our thing has become a different thing .. because I can find no reason for pause with you.

» The Point of No Return

This is kind of the place where you start to fall over into this thing .. and you know that you are going to be beyond ________ ... I am not even going to say what you are going to be beyond.

In physics, this is known as the event horizon .. the point of no return. One thing is for certain .. after you go over the event horizon .. you will never be the same again.

Say goodbye to the old you.

Now .. do you still want to know the sentence that my eyes fixed upon there on the back cover? The back cover of Lolita? You know .. the erotic masterpiece that is a masterpiece because of » love.

I'll give you some time to think about it. But I wouldnt get too distraught over it .. because we're probably already beyond the point-of-no-return. It kind of feels inevitable, no?

See, girly .. once we get over into love .. all bets are off. Now, you're in my world .. subject to my rules. You won't know which way is up .. and you probably wont even care. Now you are at a severe disadvantage.

» Taking Advantage of Young Hotties

And I might be tempted to take advantage of you .. of your disadvantage. (I'm pretty sure of it.) Kate Hudson knows exactly what I'm talking about.

Lolita the greatest novel of rapture in modern fiction | Vladimir Nabokov 1955This is kind of the thing that makes Lolita a naughty story ..

.. the idea of an older man (like me) "taking advantage of" a young girl (like you).

A pretty, young girl. Even a sexy young girl.

But what happens when this pretty, young, sexy girl starts working your ass?

What if they want you to "take advantage of" them?

Because, I am not so sure that you want to know the answer to that question.

(I am pretty sure that you cannot handle the answer to that question.)

But what if they start doing and saying things that make it difficult for you to resist their charms?

What if they somehow manage to melt your resistance and make you breathe hard?

Or what if they get their friends to help them .. to help them tag-team your ass? What then? (Of course, this is a purely hypothetical question that I pose here.)

» Living with Lolitas

Speaking of dangerous things that make me breathe hard, and for which I have first-hand experience .. I hesitate to share this with you.

And perhaps I shouldnt even bring it up. But, on the topic of Lolita and lolitas ..

Lani at Noguchi Gardens, Costa Mesa.. the Film school girl had a teenage daughter,

who was pretty and fun and cool and thoughtful and kind,

and probably a few other adjectives.

» The Queen of French Toast

She was the queen of Saturday morning french toast ..

.. for all her sleep-over girlfriends from the Drama dept.

And she was smart, too .. well-read for a high-schooler.

She gave me a number of her books when she was done with them.

On second thought, maybe I shouldnt have brought it up. Forget I said anything about it.

Well, maybe there is this one thing .. that I can share. On second thought .. I better not. (I'm already in enough trouble.)

But .. if something did happen .. I mean, seeing how we lived together for a number of years .. in countless unexpected situations .. would anybody really be surprised if something did indeed transpire?

» Wanna Get High?

On the weekends, and during the summer vacation, she smoked a little ganja ..

.. the sacred medicinal flowering herb, given by the Creator himself .. first found growing there at the foothills of the Himalayas .. the mountain range that reaches higher toward the heavens than any other place on the planet.

Sometimes she would come home from school on Friday and say, "Wanna get high?"

Bella Thorne (19) GQ Mexico October 2017

Why do I feel like Bella is talking to me here? She is 19. Is 19 legal? If it is, it's barely legal. I see you Bella. Very provocative. Very nice. Nice shot here.

It reminded me of another lolita shot .. as you can see. What a look. Wait 'til Dove sees this. She'll be thinking, "I might have to get me some of that .. some of that girl action."

What does it feel like? .. to turn-on straight girls?

Anyway .. she cut up a little nug with a small pair professional-grade scizzors.

Snip, snip, snip .. into the bamboo tray .. the one that was prayed over and blessed by a Rastafarian elder, who was related to Bob Marley.

» I Should Not have Watched her Lick that Glue-Strip

She sprinkled some of the sacred snippings into the fold of the paper-tray that she formed and held with her other hand.

Girl with pink nails dropping cannabis into rolling paper

I watched her lick the strip of glue on the super-fine paper wrapper.

Jaira Burns | Burn Slow - licking rolling paper

I probably shouldnt have done that. Pretty sure. Close to positive. (Did I just use the term 'super-fine'? Maybe I did.)

She was an expert roller .. her slender fingers nimbly working the fine paper wrapper. It was a beautiful thing .. if you really must know.

I'm not even going to tell you how good her hair smelled. Sometimes she would twirl this way or that .. to get something or other .. and I would get a whiff. A cloud from heaven would blow right through me .. and fuck me up.

In a disorienting sort-of-way.

"Steady as she goes," I would think to myself.

» Dont Tell My Mom, Okay?

She lit it and took a hit.

Jaira Burns | Burn Slow - lighting a joint

With her arm extended toward me, she looked up and made eye contact and said, "Dont tell my mom, okay?"

She was kind of holding her breath when she said this.

Lani lolitaFuck, what would you say?

Because I've already said too much.

» Intimate Moments with Lolitas

I probably dont need to tell you ..

.. but, this thing .. this smoking thing ..

.. it went back and forth a few times ..

.. from her mouth to mine ..

.. and back to hers again.

She always had the best weed.

We burned it slow. I mean, why hurry?

We took our time. We savored the experience.

I very much enjoyed it .. probably more than I should have .. as you can see.

I bet that Jaira knows exactly what I am talking about.

» Congrats on Winning the Grammy for the 2019 Album of the Year

I bet that Kacey Musgraves knows what I am talking about.

Kacey Musgraves | Diary of a Song with Joe Coscarelli, Slow Burn (24 Oct 2018)

Congrats on winning the Grammy for the 2019 Album of the Year (Golden Hour, March 2018).

You must be elated and very proud of your accomplishment and also for the recognition it has received. The acclaim.

You won Grammys in every category in which you were nominated (4). What does that feel like? I would imagine that it must feel very satisfying.

I am returning here to insert this bit of recognition and congrats .. because this seemed like the right place for it. This is a cool place.

What do you think of that? What do you think of me inserting my congrats here?

This is my own special (signature) twist that I give, that I offer .. as a way of acknowledging and expressing my recognition and my appreciation .. in a distinct sort-of-way.

What do you think about my thoughts on awards? .. which I somehow happened to write at the end of a page titled » Sex with Powerful Women (14 Feb 2014).

Probably some kind of Freudian thing at play.

» The Sense of Respect that Arises from Witnesssing Professional Competence Operate at a High Level

[ I definitely have a thing for powerful women. Hard to describe .. but the effect is that it brings out parts of me that I didnt even know were there.

A part of it definitely arises out of the sense of respect that you feel for the competence factor.

When a woman has her shit together, and runs her domain well .. and her subjects are glad to work for her .. you cannot but admire this .. Can you? I can't.

Especially when they are operating in a heavily male-dominant industry.

When she walks by, talking to someone about something or other, you think, "She has her shit together. She knows her shit. And she knows it well."

I cannot help but feel impressed and admire such competence .. especially in a female form.

When a woman knows her shit, professionally speaking .. and she knows that she knows .. then she will likely carry herself with an easy, relaxed, professional confidence about her. No?

I find that easy, relaxed confidence an attractive thing. Doesnt everybody? ]

If this section grows too large, then I will need to move it to its own page .. because this page already too big.

» Texans Congregate in Engineroom Upper Level

You grew up in Texas. What do you think of my Texan shipmates?

Nuclear-powered submarine underway surfaced

They ganged up on me there in Engineroom Upper level and formed a solid wall in front of me and took turns schooling me on the intracacies of the Civil War.

They were saying shit like, "You fucking yankees are all the same." And also, "The civil war wasnt about slavery."

(Speaking of slavery .. what do you think about what Kanye said?)

You would be surprised at how long this tag-teaming went on. I certainly was. I mean, a normal watch is 6 hours long ..right between the main engines. The humming main engines. Humming at 3600 RPM. Port-n-starboard. Stream-driven turbines in stereo.

The industrial-grade diamond-plate decking beneath your feet vibrates with the hum of the main engines on each side of you. The plant is roaring with power. Guys love shit like this.

It is loud and hot (steamy) there in engineroom upper level. The rest of the submarine is kept pretty chilly.

» I Am No Stranger to the Golden Hour

Ya know, Kace, I happen to know a little about the 'golden hour' myself .. the last hour before sunset .. when the sun's brightness is muted and the colors become more vibrant .. in a richer sort of way.

Slow Burn is the first song on that album.

I can almost hear you saying, "We will start this album by taking a trip, a journey, an exploratory journey. And we will go from there. This is going to be a different kind of album."

(The term 'we' here being your inner artist. Your inner writer. Your inner creative force. The source of your springs of creativity.)

I saw this one text piece written about your album, which said something like you have "written a country album so audaciously audacious .. that it has transcended the genre." .. or something along those lines.

Oh, here it is. (16 March 2018). I still had the page open in another browser.

Any time I hear about transcendent things .. this gets my attention. Because it says things to me.

"What kinds of things?" you ask? I dont know if you could handle it.

Notice that the title of this page you are reading now contains titles itself .. titles to works that have not only survived the ravages of time ..

.. but have also risen to the top of the list of the greatest literary works of the last century .. now that the 20th century is done and finish and has come to an end.

Or maybe you can handle it.

» The Sense of Intimacy that Arises from Sharing a Slow Burn

Anyway .. there is an element of intimacy in sharing a joint, no? I feel confident that Kacey would concur.

Particularly when there are only two people sharing it. And when one is a male and the other a female.

Girl smoking a joint that she rolled herself

And even moreso when the person across from you is a beautiful creature .. in more ways than one.

Should I elaborate? Probably not.

» Touching Lolitas

And as you pass this thing back-n-forth .. you can't help but touch each other .. even tho you kind of try not to.

Touching is not uncommon .. while passing a joint back-n-forth. And that's all I am going to say on the matter.

But you know how girls tell me that I have nice hands, right?

Would you characterize such touching with my nice hands as 'casual'? Because it definitely did not feel that way. No, ma'am .. not hardly. Tho I am not really sure why.

Do you want to know more? Should I continue down this path? This naughty path .. where I 'take advantage' of young, industrial-strength hotties with my nice hands?

I should stop right here, right now.

» Maru Knows Where This Story is Headed

I bet that Maru wants me to continue .. because she obviously knows where this thing is headed.

MARU pulls down her jeans for me in sexy choreo (20 Oct 2016) from Rihanna song Skin.

How old do you think this girl is here. She looks pretty young to me .. but she does not act like a young girl. She does not perform with the sexuality of a young girl.

She pulls down her jeans here while Rihanna sings, "No teasing .. you waited long enough."

I know that Maru wants me to continue here .. but I probably shouldnt.

(How old are you? You look so young.)

» Telling Naughty Dangerous Stories

Girly, do you still want me to share with you this sentence?

From the back cover of Lolita?

Do you dare?

Think about it .. think long and hard.

Very hard.

Because once I share with you this sentence .. there's no going back for me-n-you.

Before .. I said that you should "probably" be scared. But now, you should definitely be scared.

There are a number of sentences on the back cover. But I didnt read any of the others.

Because, when I saw this one, my eyebrows popped up and I said, "Oh, you gotta be shittin' me."

I've been saying this a lot, girly .. ever since you came along.
