What Makes a Love-Story Convincing?

Rad note » this page continues from here » Some Truly Awesome Wailing in Boston. (It's a long story.)

Merry Christmas, girly. I'm working on your Christmas present right now. I'll set it under the tree for you soon as I'm done writing it.

When I asked you earlier what makes a love story convincing .. the obvious answer is » the love.

The quality of the love. And other things, too. But mostly the love. What is a love-story without love? (Just another story.)

And notice how you cant really see love itself. Rather you can only see the results of it, the effects of it. The consequences of it, if you will. (The same goes for hate, unfortunately.)

Loving actions do not necessarily speak loudly .. but they do speak clearly. They do indeed.

This is why love plays so well in the world of the existentialist.

In order to have a convincing love-story, you first need a convincing love. Then you need convincing lovers. Then you need a convincing storyteller, who is himself a convincing lover.

You need a lot a things, girly .. in order to write a convincing love-story. That's why only one was written in the last century. (According to Vanity Fair. I mean, if anybody would know...)

Speaking of not understanding women relationships .. remind me to tell you the story about my gay roommate, when he was talking to my mom at the kitchen table ..

.. when we stopped there for a few days on our way down to Florida from Maine. That's a good story.

I was in the next room with bro and dad and some friends, working on this gnarly thousand-piece puzzle on the dining room table. When I glanced into the kitchen and saw them huddled together at the table there.

And I remember wondering what they might be talking about. I'm sure that I must have had an interesting look on my face.

» Telling Stories that We Feel Comfortable Telling

It's for a similar reason why Katie Holmes feels so comfortable telling stories about female relationships.

When you hear as many voices as I do .. you quickly get comfortable with dialogue. Very comfortable.

Speaking of Katie Holmes .. I wonder if Jamie Foxx would agree with me .. that women tend to suck at keeping things on the down-low.

Which has been my experience .. my admittedly limited experience. You know, girly.

I like Katie Holmes. I like Jamie Foxx. I mean, who doesnt?

Just as she feels comfortable telling stories of women relationships (which are clealy beyond my expertise) .. I likewise feel comfortable telling stories of male relationships.

Hi Katie Holmes. I see you there. Jamie told me that you suck at keeping things on the down-low. What do you think of what he told me?

» No-Shit Awe

Ariana wailing in white at the Jingle Ball | Boston, Dec 11, 2016Oh, girly .. I think I am in awe. I think I am in no-shit awe, right now.

It definitely feels that way.

I saw you singing in Boston.

(Bro went to Tufts Medical, and Lance moved there for work.)

Holy smokes, girly. Near the end, at t=2:55, you do that roller coaster thing.

Wow. That is some seriously impressive shit.

Oh, look .. others are noticing, too.

That's how it starts .. when people start noticing.

You are so gonna get us in trouble, girly.

That is some serious ass-kicking right there.

You take no prisoners .. you slay them all.

And then you turn right round and slay with the woo-woo thing.

I read that this woo-woo thing that you do is called » falsetto.

When you can do shit like that, you can call it whatever the fuck you like.

I call it The Slayer's Wail. And not because it rhymes, either.

That's called assonance .. when the vowel sounds rhyme, such as the case with today's title.

Can you feel my internal rhyming? That means that I like you when I rhyme internally with you like that.

Can you feel me liking you? (I dont see how you cannot.)
