I Cant Quit You Either

Girly, I was really trying not to write this entry today. I was distracting myself in a million different ways. But I cant seem to quit you either.

(It looks like we're stuck with each other.)

» Why Am I Writing This and Not That?

From a certain perspective, I watch myself work with you. And I can see that one of the key determinants in whether or not I write about a certain thing is » the range of themes that come into play.

And how distinctive these themes are that are brought into play. And also whether I have firsthand experience regarding these themes. And how much firsthand experience I might happen to have.

And this song opens up such things for me. (Write what only you can write.)

Sometimes I catch myself wondering, "Is she doing that on purpose (.. to fuck with me)? Or are we simply resonating naturally?"

These things start talking to me. And if these things being said are very unique .. then such things demand more forcefully to be written. Because we might never get back here again.

If I continued down this tangent much further, I would start to sound like a nutcase.

Feeling Less Fucked-Up

[ Note that this entry originated » here. ]

Along the lines of artistic creativity .. what do you think of this? How about this?

I think that I might write an entry about that first one, where I simply respond to some of the comments made in that video.

I would title this entry something like » Feeling Less Fucked-Up. That would make a cool title .. you must admit.

Many interesting statements were made in that video, but I would probably start with the one made by David Byrne [ at t=1:35 ] where he says:

Although some of them maybe have the ambition to be the next [ big thing ], the number of those artists are very, very small. And often, the artists who are very successful in that way .. they dont have much flexibility.

In achieving success, they lose a lot of their creative freedom. They have to keep making the same thing, more or less, over and over and over again.

And if the musician or artist values their freedom and the ability to be creative, then they maybe have to realize that they won't be making hundreds of millions of dollars. They might be making less money .. but they might have more artistic satisfaction.

What's it Like to Lie with Hollywood's Hottest Starlet?

[ This entry originated from another page. It's a long story. ]

Girly, speaking of threesomes (« I always wanted to start an entry that way) ..

.. I know that you know this Dove Cameron girl. You were in Hairspray Live! with her (Dec 7, 2016).

She is very much a girly-girl, like yourself. Look how fragile and easily-breakable she looks.

Dove Cameron sipping from a cup for the Feb 2017 issue of Galore

When I saw this image of her here, sipping from a colorful girly-cup .. I thought about that girl at the coffee shop.

Look at her eyes .. that is exactly the look. (I could go into great detail about what these eyes are saying.)

But notice in particular how she seems to be looking past you, or through you. That was the thing that struck me about this girl. She seemed to be looking right through me.

Like it wasnt me, per se, that she fancied .. but rather something about me. Like she was projecting something onto me.

What was it that she was projecting onto me? Fuck if I know. Who can figure out these girls? These young, smoking-hotties.

That's why they kind of freak me out a little sometimes.

» Only with Girls that I Really Like

I like her. I have already gone back to Page Six, where I talk about the juicy-juice .. and added an image of her with a quote from her Feb, 2017 article in Galore. (I only do that with girls that I really like.)

Perhaps I should lift out this section on Miss Dove and transfer it to its own page .. because she is prompting very different dialogue. Whatever title would I give to such a page?

[ This is now done, with an entry dated Feb 23, 2017. This could be very dangerous. ]

» Is She Really Hollywood's Hottest Starlet?

It's interesting how different girls evoke such different things in me. Is she really Hollywood's hottest starlet?

Dove Cameron | Hollywood's hottest starlet

I cant help but wonder what it's like .. to lie with Hollywood's hottest starlet. Can you blame me? It's a valid question, no?

Artist of the Year + Hollywood's Hottest Starlet + the Most Gifted Writer of his Generation .. I can only imagine what kind of criticl mass such a thing would produce.

A very creative experience, I'm sure .. when such creative DNA gets together. Anything could happen. Anything would be possible.

Say hi for me .. the next time you talk to her. Ask her what she's sipping there. Or, is the cup just a colorful design prop?

» Talking in Hushed Girly Tones?

Girly, you know that you're supposed to be keeping our thing a secret, right? Did you say anything to this girl? She is speaking my language.

Hairspray Live cast

The voices in my head are all convinced that you were indeed talking to her .. no doubt in hushed girly tones while sitting in some dimly lit corner somewhere.

And my ego is absolutely certain. "There's no question," he insists.

» Difficult for Me to Resist

She is talking about being comfortable with intimacy. It's difficult for me to resist responding to such a topic .. coming from such a young, sexy girl like this. (Dont think I havent tried.)

She just turned 21 last month. You can see her experimenting with her sexuality. She certainly caught my attention right away.

Dove Cameron | Ways to be Wicked, Descendants 2

[ I see you winking at me, Miss Dove. I see you winking at me with your purple hair. I have never been with a girl with purple hair before. In case you were wondering. I'm pretty sure that I would've remembered something like that .. particularly if this purple hair was attached to Hollywood's hottest starlet. I mean, how could a guy forget something like that? ]

She says some very mature things for a 21 year old. I dont really see how you can have a 21 year old girl saying such mature things like she is saying.

This is why I sometimes feel that you super-hottie singers must be getting professional help .. crafting your message.

» The Sound of an Interesting Voice Saying Interesting Things

Have you ever been at a party, where you are talking to someone, or with a group of people .. and you suddenly hear the sound of an interesting voice .. that is saying the most interesting things?

Christina Ricci as Zelda Sayre

And something about her voice, and something even more about those things that she is saying (behind you) .. is clearly affecting you.

Dare you turn and see who it is saying these things that speak to your soul? Surely standing behind me is the soul that I have been searching for all my life.

And you simply can't help yourself. She is standing in a circle with three guys, holding forth. But she is looking at you .. from the moment you turn. And you realize » it *is* her.

Heck, you might even be there at this party with a remarkable creature yourself. So, how is such a thing even possible?

» An Offensive Posture

So I can feel myself becoming curious with her. That's not usually a good thing for girls .. when I become curious about them .. curious about what makes them tick. (You know what I'm talking about.)

I can feel myself approaching her from an offensive posture. Not quite predatory .. but definitely heading in that direction. (It's all your fault.)

I am more in-your-face when I am taking an offensive posture. You will know that I like you. There will be no guesswork about that.

You will feel me tickling your ovaries. I will charm your panties right off.

The Smart-Ass Karamazov Brother

[ This entry originated » here. ]

» A Smart Motherfucker

I am a smart motherfucker myself .. without even trying to be. My dad told me at least a million times while I was growing up, "Dont be smart."

What he really meant was, "Dont be a smart-ass."

I could definitely be a smart ass. (Because I am so smart.) No doubt about it. Being a smart-ass is part of what got me into trouble with the captain.

Because I am not afraid to toe-up with authority figures when they are fucking up. Particularly when their fucking up is affecting me or mine.

Or did he really not want me to be smart?

My dad was smart, but not educated. My mom told me, "I married your father because he was smart and because he had good teeth."

» Dad vs Fyodor Karamazov

I can confirm that he was smart, but only in a Fyodor Karamazov sort-of-way.

Keke and the Testimony of the Percipient Witness

» You Werent There, Bitch

Keke Palmer calls out Wendy | You werent there, WendyI bet that Keke knows what I am talking about, too.

Look at her here, giving Wendy shit on her own show.

"You werent there, Wendy .. so shut the fuck up."

You cannot possibly imagine the number of times I have thought,

"This motherfucker, who was not even there, and who has n.e.v.e.r been there, talks like they are an all-knowing expert."

Connecting with the Soul Behind the Dazzle - Page Two

[ This page continues from » Page One. It's a long story. ]

» Being Okay with a Lack of Definiteness and of Certainty in the World

In returning to speak to the uncertainty that I sense with determining the location of the blurry line between the real and the imaginary in this thing that we have .. this erotic, dangerous thing ..

.. I should say that this is the essence of the problem with quantum mechanics. You lose that sense of definiteness and certainty that classical physics provides and cherishes.

This sense of certainty in the physical world feels comforting .. does it not? But you learn that classical Newtonian physics is something of a kludge. Things dont work the way they should under certain circumstances.

This is why quantum mechanics represents a more accurate description of our physical world. (I like getting accurate with you girly. Most girls cannot handle my accuracy.)

This is what really fucked with Einstein. He could not deal with the "dice" problems associated with probability. (Uncertainty.)

Connecting with the Soul Behind the Dazzle - Page One

[ Note: this page is continued from here » What Makes a Love-Story Convincing? (It's a long story.) ]

This was, in a way, the whole driving force behind that page I wrote for Mary-Louise. Tho I am not going to explain exactly what I mean by that.

» Finding Non-Traditional Companionship that Works for the Dedicated Artist

Oh, look at this (Jan 6, 2017). She is trending. How does it feel to be trending, girly?

(Every time I have been trending, it was never a good thing. This is one of the reasons why I want to keep our thing secret.)

This actually speaks to what I was trying to say with Mary-Louise.

These things are hard to say. Because I've never heard anyone say them before.

The Madness of Fergie's Beautiful Life

This page originated » here. [ It's a long story. ] Happy New Year, Fergie.

Fergie reminding you that life is beautiful even in the midst of the madness Fergie would probably chime in here.

And tell you to remember that life is beautiful.

Even in the midst of the madness.

But it's not, Fergie.

It's not beautiful .. for millions Americans.

Not even close.

It's still a good song, sure. And this may indeed be your experience of life.

And, in your experience, life may indeed be beautiful .. even in the midst of the madness. I dont doubt that one bit.

But your madness is different from the madness of most other Americans. Very different.

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...)

Even More (Sex with Director-Chicks)

[ This entry continues from this page » here. ]

» Tell Me a Story, Dad

Pooh & Piglet Looking for ButterfliesMy son would always say, "Tell me a story, dad." (.. when he was small).

He would tell me which characters he wanted in his story that day,

"Okay, dad .. today I want Pooh in my story .. and I want Piglet, too."

And, no matter what, he always wanted Tigger in his story.

Because Tigger was always getting into crazy shit.

You know how Tigger is.

» I Impressed Myself with My Storytelling Skills

It is not easy to throw together a story on the spot like that. I could feel myself summoning an array of skills. And they werent always enough. They werent always sufficient. Sometimes I struggled.

But, when I was on .. when I was having a good day telling stories .. I was good. Very good. I surprised even myself some days.

Once you get into that creative flow .. then you just ride along with it. Go where it takes you. Good coffee helps.

Most of the stories that I told him came while we were sitting at the coffee shop early in the morning.
