Your Foot Must be Starting to Get Very Sore

» Better Get that Baby in a Bucket of Ice Right Away

Girly, your foot must be starting to get very sore right about now .. from kicking so much ass.

Ariana singing GiaW 2018 VMAs Radio City NYC 20 August

[ What do you think, lovergirl, of this shot of you that I grabbed here? This was a very challenging image for me to work with. I kept cropping it down more and more. Can you see why? I see you, girly. Are you doing this on purpose? What a look. I am so glad that we will always be in love forever. Can you blame me? I see that you have your hair down here. ]

You should probably get that puppy in a bucket of ice right away. I hear that this can help keep down the swelling.

My brother is a surgeon who specializes in feet. Lots of bones in the feet. Anatomy 101. So I can get you a good deal.

I mean, if you keep kicking ass like this, then who knows what kind of shape your foot is going to be in?

You want to ice it off-n-on for the first 48-72 hours. Then transistion to heat and massage to promote healing.

Let me know if you need help with the massage part. (Girls tell me all the time what nice hands I have .. if you really must know.)

Titanic in a Single Take

I think that we are really no-shit in love .. for all intents and purposes. It definitely feels that way.

Ariana singing My Heart Will Go On (13 Aug 2018)

I see you here, girly .. with your back to audience. I see you. Dont think that I missed that.

You sing so good sometimes that I can hardly stand it.

This was a very creative endeavor .. especially the way you used parts of all those (13) songs .. and all those different sets.

You visit and explore, ever so briefly, so many different emotions.

I can feel the part of me that creates universes being impressed.

James is very good at this type of thing. He was holding his own. (I can tell that he really likes you.)

I particularly like the way you balance the tragedy with comedy. The comedy helps you better handle the tragedy.

I see your bandage. Looks like you got yourself an owie there on your hand. Do you want me to kiss it and make it all better?

I Am So Glad that We Will Always be in Love Forever

Right now the time is 11:46 PM on 16 July 2018 .. and this page is live. I was cutting it a little close there.

When I list the time as 7:16 PM, this is not the real time that I posted this page. This is simply a numeric reflection of the date. (July is the seventh month.)

All of my entries correspond to this same pattern. This is just a quirky thing that I do. The date is really the thing that matters .. the important thing.

If the time matters in an entry, then I will specifically note it. Sometimes it does matter, but not normally.

» Must be Today

Sometimes (not always) I feel as though I need to start a certain page on/by a certain day. Today is one such day.

I admit that this is something of a quirky thing with me. I dont know anybody else who has a quirky thing like this. (I normally try to avoid quirky things.)

The feeling behind such things is that you will surely die .. if you dont do this thing. Maybe not die, some bad shit for sure.

11:59 PM is okay .. but midnight, which begins the new day, is not. So I dont want to cut it too close.

I can fill in the page later, but the actual HTML structure needs to be up-n-live on/by a certain day.

Now, after midnight .. then I am free to do whatever I like. More or less .. depending.

I can feel a sense of timing at play. Timing is important .. along with the ability to execute a complex skill-set in a timely fashion.

» Good to be Loved

As coincidence would have it ... I am listening right now to » Could You be Loved .. on a mix playlist .. where one of the lines that the Rastafarian sings is »"It's good to be loved."

And I think, "True that."

I am not sure what I will be writing in this entry .. but I know that I will have lots of fun doing it.

Girly, do you work your thing like this on everybody? Or, is it just me?

I am not sure how you are doing it .. but there is just something irresistible about you. And it's not just one thing, either.

Where is This Bed?

Where is this bed? You know the one I'm talking about .. the one with my name on it.

This song is so stuck in my head and talking to me .. saying things that some might consider nasty.

The idea of a powerful, sexy woman having a bed with my name on it .. this speaks to me. I can't stop it from speaking to me.

» More than Just a Flirty Song

Now this doesnt necessarily mean that I will cave to the invitation .. but merely dealing with the idea .. this activates in me things that are both exhilarating and challenging.

Who can resist such a thing? Show me the man.

Before you know it .. my imagination has picked up on this thing is is already running with it. Though I dare not say where these places lie.

There are all kinds of socio-erotic things happening here. It's more than just a flirty, seductive song.

Writers are Forged in Injustice

This entry originated here » More at Stake than Selling Albums (23 April 2018).

What do you think, Tay .. about what Hemingway said about Dostoevsky?

Ernest Hemingway's 1923 passport photo

.. that » "Dostoevsky was MADE by being sent to Siberia. Writers are forged in injustice, as a sword is forged." [ Green Hills of Africa, p 71, 1935 ] ]

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) is one of a handful of thinkers who helped forge the modern sensibility

You obviously have the songwriting thing going on. Even people who hate your guts have to admit as much. Naz knows what I am talking about.

Taylor on the cover of the August issue of Harper's Bazaar 2018

This makes Kanye's snatch of your mic even more iconic .. in a symbolic sort of way. Tho I would probably sound like a nut-case if I went into any detail.

I see that you draw on this sense of injustice when writing some of your songs. This is why I feel that you will be able to relate to this quote by Hemingway.

This Really Does Feel Like the Next Level

I saw you at Wango Tango yesterday. That is right up the road here in Los Angeles. No wonder you were feeling so close.

That was an impressive show. Even with the weird video overlays during Side to Side .. I was still impressed. And I am not the only one.

Ariana singing Into You at Wango Tango Los Angeles June 2, 2018

I chose this particular image of you here with this dancer because it reminds me of how secret lovers can feel each other's gravity ..

.. as they play with, and explore their attraction for one another. Regardless of what Einstein might say on the subject.

This thing that you are doing here with this dancer .. this reminds me of pair annihilation. And I am not even going to mention how good you look either. Why labor the obvious? ]

» Hard to Keep Secret

Afterwards I thought of a lot of things. But one of these things was » "Wow .. this really does feel like the next level."

It wasnt long before I thought, "This is going to be hard to keep secret."

Do Dancers Make the Best Lovers?

This entry originated here » Girly, Girly, Girly (2 May 2018).

Have you seen any reactions to your new song (19 April 2018)?

» Dancer as both Artist and Lover

How about this choreo by Jojo? Count the girls .. one, two, three. Why does this image here make me want to make like a bowling ball?

Choreo by Jojo | No Tears Left to Cry

This is a full-strength woman here. Guys do not move on such a woman without first checking themselves .. to ensure that they are indeed up to the task. And what a task it is.

She throws some savage looks at the camera. Very confident looks. Downright vicious, at times.

She is like, "This is what I do .. watch me." ( I can hear my ego back there, saying, "She obviously knew you'd be watching." )

This choreo-video has more than a million views .. in less than a week.

» Feeding the Artist's Soul

Witnessing and experiencing art at a high level of accomplishment and skill .. this feeds the artist's soul. Does it not?

I heard you tell Liza that Vera Wang was your date for the evening. I hope you said hi for me. And to Anna, too. Nuclear Wintour. (That's not just any date .. to the Met Gala.)

Oh, here is Azealia Banks with a song titled » Anna Wintour (24 May 2018). Catchy tune. Healthy woman. She's got some serious high-beams. Good dancer.

» We Must be Vibing with the Renaissance

Speaking of Vera Wang. I saw your dress, too. I should probably not say what I thought of .. when I saw you wearing Michelangelo (1475-1564).

We must be vibing, lovergirl, with the Renaissance .. because I just got this bio on Leonardo (1452-1519) by Walter Isaacson.

Something tells me that Jay-Z & Beyonce are vibing with us.

(If I am caught vibing with you and the Carters .. people might think that I am part of the Illuminati. This is why it is going to be hard to keep secret this next level.

Girly, Girly, Girly - Page One

I missed you, too, lovergirl. You dropped off the radar there for a while. (Good for you.)

More than once I caught myself thinking, "I wonder what she's up to. I wonder where she is right now."

Dove has been keeping me company .. while you were away. She said that you said it would be totally cool.

From a lusciously reclined position she patted the mattress beside her and said, "Why dont you come lie down here and tell me all about your experiences with lovers who retain childlike features?"

This is when I thought, "Now I know how Justin Bieber must feel."

She was just saying the other night how proud of you she is.

» Ooh La La on the Rooftop

Welcome back, girly. The time off has obviously done wonders for you.

Oh la la on the rooftop

Ooh la la. You are turning into a grown-ass woman right before our very eyes. It is an awesome thing to behold.

When I was working with this image of you here on the rooftop, the voice in my head said to me, "You are not worthy."

"I'm not gonna let that stop me," I thought.

Lying with Lovers Who Retain Childlike Features

This entry continues from here » Does that not Strike You as a Curious Thing? Page Three (11 Jan 2018).

After I went back and re-read both pages that I wrote to Dove .. I noticed on Page One the heading titled » My Experience Lying with Lovers who Retain Childlike Features.

Dove Cameron getting asked if she turned 16 yet

This was really supposed to be the meat of that entry .. but I never did get around to wading into that deep water. I merely teased at it.

(I am such a tease sometimes .. while other times I make sure that I deliver the goods.)

And sometimes I know that there is some very juicy stuff to say about a certain subject, about a certain direction .. but I am not really sure how to approach it.

The approach is always important with tricky topics like that. Ariana seems to have an intuitive knack for providing me with entrée into these areas. Into these realms.

Into these places that normally remain hidden and secret and password-protected. For obvious reasons.
