The Song Stuck In My Head: “A PAIN THAT I’M USED TO” by DEPECHE MODE (2005)

I’m Not Sure What I’m Looking For Anymore…

…I Just Know That I’m Harder To Console…

…I Don’t See Who I’m Trying To Be Instead Of Me…

…But The Key Is A Question Of Control. …

*** *** *** *** ***

…Can You Say What You’re Trying To Play Anyway…

…I Just Pay While You’re Breaking All The Rules…

…All The Signs That I Find Have Been Underlined…

…Devils Thrive On The Drive That Is Fueled. …

*** *** *** *** ***

…All This Running Around…

…Well It’s Getting Me Down…

…Just Give Me A PAIN THAT I’M USED TO

…I Don’t Need To Believe…

…All The Dreams You Conceive…

…You Just Need To Achieve Something That Rings True. …

Alright, My Peeps…

…Y’all Already Know I’m A Huge Fan Of The Band…

DEPECHE MODE

…And I Make No Attempts To Hide That Fact.

I Know Their Style And Sound Aren’t Everyone’s Cup-Of-Tea…

…But That Hardly Matters.

Everyone Has Something They Love And Enjoy That Other Folks Simply Think Is Odd/Strange/Weird/Whatever.

When This Album…

PLAYING THE ANGEL

…Was Released In 2005…

…You’d Best Believe I Was One Of The 1ST To Plunk-Down My Cold-Hard-Cash.

I’ve Listened To This Album…

…Sheesh…

…I Dunno…

…847,000 Times?!?

Maybe?!?

;)

And It Has Yet To Get Old.

I Love The Album, Fo SHO!

And This Song…

A PAIN THAT I’M USED TO

…Is One Of My All-Time Fave Of Faves…

…And One Of The Best Songs EVER By…

DEPECHE MODE

.Period.

The Lyrics Alone Are Priceless…

…But The Rhythm…

…The Beat…

…The Pace…

…They’re All WONDERFUL!!!

If There’s ANY TRACK On The Album…

PLAYING THE ANGEL

…That I Would Highly Recommend To Y’all As A Starting Point…

A PAIN THAT I’M USED TO

…Would Be Said Track.

It’s Another Of Those Songs That I’d Call INFECTIOUS.

Once You’ve Heard It…

…You’ll Wanna Hear It Again…

…And Again…

…And Again And Again And Again!!!

Trust Me, My Peeps.

You Do Trust Me, Don’t You?!?

DON’T YOU?!?!?

OF COURSE YOU DO!!!

:D

Friday Has Arrived, My Peeps…

…And I Wanted To Get It Started Right.

Today Is Going To Be A Very Busy Day…

…So I Wanted To Try Churning Out A Quickie For Y’all.

And I Believe This Post Totally Counts!!!

Hope Y’all Have A Damned Decent Day…

…And An Even More Damned Decent Weekend!!!

Much Love To Ya, My Peeps.

NOW…

…BRING ON THE DAY!!!

WOOT!!!

;)

:D

(Not So) Random Movie Mention: “THE BATMAN Vs DRACULA” (2005)

Well…

…Since I’m Trying To Force Myself Into Coming Back And Getting Some Actual Work Done…

…I Figured This Would Be A Great Place To Start.

Being A Huge Fan Of All The Animated Batman Series…

…I Decided To Cherry-Pick My Fave Of Faves.

I’m Unsure How Many Of You Have Seen…

THE BATMAN Vs DRACULA

…But It’s One That’s Made Truly For The Batfans!!!

How About This Little Tagline:

"GOTHAM CITY SLEEPS UNDER THE COVER OF DARKNESS WHILE TWO LEGENDARY BATS TAKE FLIGHT."

!!! !!! !!!

:D

I Know, Right!!!

WONDERFUL!!!

Here’s Another:

"THE DARK KNIGHT. THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS. IN ONE ROYAL BATTLE!"

!!! !!! !!!

:D

Do You Really Need More To Wet Your Collective Whistles, My Peeps!?!

Good.

ME NEITHER!!!

;)

Can THE BATMAN Stop DRACULA Before He Turns All Of Gotham City Into A Roving Band Of Bloodthirsty VAMPIRES?!?!?!

Wouldn’t YOU Like To Know?!?!?!

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

;)

THE BATMAN Vs DRACULA

…Is A Total Blast For Fans Of The Animated Genera.

You Know Me, Kiddies…

…If It’s COOL…

…If It’s FUN…

…If It’s WONDERFULLY ENTERTAINING…

…Chances Are…

…I…

…WILL…

…LOVE IT!!!

In This Instance…

…That Holds Very VERY True!!!

Give It The Ole Once-Over, My Peeps.

Hopefully You’ll Agree With Me.

THE BATMAN Vs DRACULA

…Is Totally Cool Beans…

…And Totally Worth The 80+Minutes You’ll Spend With It.

And…

…Perhaps…

…Like Me…

…You’ll Wanna Watch It Again…

…And Again…

…And Again And Again And Again!!!

I Shall Be Hollering At Y’all More And More In The Coming Days, My Peeps.

I Still Feel Like Total Ass-Bag…

…But I’m On The Mend.

And It Was Really Paining Me Not Being On Here Working For Y’all.

I Love My Blog.

And I Love All The Feedback I Get From Y’all.

I Do Do This Stuff For Myself, Yes…

…But I Also Do It For All Of You.

Hopefully I’ll Be Able To Continue Crankin’ Away And Actually Get Some More Accomplished Over The Coming Weekend.

With Any Luck…

(of which I generally have none)

…I’ll Be Back Up To Snuff In No Time.

One Can Only Hope…

…Right???

RIGHT!!!

:D

“Jo Jo Was Man Who Thought He Was A Loner… But He Knew It Couldn’t Last…” –THE BEATLES (“Get Back” (1970))

…Jo Jo Left His Home In Tucson, Arizona…

…For Some California Grass…

… … …

…Get Back…

…Get Back…

…Get Back To Where You Once Belonged…

…Get Back…

…Get Back…

…Get Back To Where You Once Belonged…

…Get Back, Jo Jo…

… … …

…Go Home…

… … …

…Get Back…

…Get Back…

…Back To Where You Once Belonged…

…Get Back…

…Get Back…

…Back To Where You Once Belonged…

…Get Back, Jo. …

… … …

GET BACKIs Off The 1970 AlbumLET IT BEBy THE BEATLES

… … …

Well, My Peeps…

…I’m Honestly Unsure If I’m Back Back, Or Not.

I’m Trying, At The Least.

I Continue To Suffer Through This Horrid Frickin’ Headache.

It’s Been Over  A Week, Now.

I’m Convinced It’s My Seasonal Allergies…

…As I’ve Also Got A Stuffy Nose…

…And Bleary Eyes.

Here It Is 4-Something In The A.M. And I'm Writing To Y'all.

So…

…Of Course…

…As You Can See…

…I Ain’t Sleepin’ Too Good, Neither.

The Best Thing For Me Right Now Would Be A Lengthy…

…Totally Aimless…

…Totally Random…

…Walk-About.

It Helps Me Clear My Head.

It Helps Me Calm Down.

It Helps Me Achieve Some Form Of Mental AND Physical Focus.

And Focus Of Any Type Would Be Just Peachy At This Point.

I Want To Be Able To Say I’m Back With Y’all.

I’m Trying To Be.

My Body Just Isn’t Making That A Very Easy Task.

I Have Been Listening To My Music Very VERY Softly…

…As My Head Simply Pounds When I Try To Crank It Up.

I Haven’t Really Been Able To Watch Any TV, Either.

I’ve Mainly Been Listening To Documentaries I’ve Already Seen Many Times Before.

This Morning, However…

THE BEATLES

…Just Felt Like A Grand Way To Begin The Day.

Wouldn’t You Agree???

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

 GET BACK

…Is One Of The ALL-TIME GREAT-TUNES From…

THE BEATLES

…So Why Not Wrap My Posting Around It With Tender Love And Care?!?

EXACTLY!!!

Why Not, INDEED!!!

I Am Going To Try Posting More And More, Again.

Let’s Just Hope My Brain AND My Body Decide To Cooperate.

I Hope I Hope I Hope!!!

I Shall Pester Y’all Later On, My Peeps.

PEACE!!!

:D

A Quickie For My Peeps…

…As I Just Really Wanted Y’all To Know I Haven’t Gone Away.

I Continue To Live And Breathe, It’s Just Not So Easy.

I’ve Had A Headache For Over A Week, Now.

So It Really Pains Me To Sit Here And Stare At This Bloody Computer Screen.

I’ve Also Been Using What Energy I Have Left In My Proverbial Tank To Aide In Taking Care Of My Grandfather (aka Paw).

So I Simply Haven’t Had The Free Time To Indulge Myself In My Little Bloggin’ing World.

I’m Hoping Things Will Slow Down Soon, And I’ll Be Back Here To Work For Y’all.

Right This Moment, What I Need Most Of All Is A Damned Decent Walk-About.

Perhaps, Afterward, I Shall Be Inspired Enough To Put Something Together For You, My Peeps.

For Now…

…For Right Now…

…Please Just Accept My Apologies For Not Having Been Around As Much.

I Ain’t Dead…

…Yet…

…And I Do Still Feel My Passion For Writing For The Enjoyment Of All Concerned.

It’s Just Been Super Hard To Find BOTH Time AND Opportunity.

When I’ve Got One, I Never Seem To Have The Other.

Drives Me Crazy, As I’m Sure Y’all Can Easily Relate.

So…

…My Peeps…

…Please Do Continue Looking Forward To Future Posts From Moi.

I’ll Be Taking Care Of Paw Again, This Afternoon.

Perhaps He Will Just Take One Of His Naps, And I’ll Be Able To Churn Out SOMETHING Worth A Glance OR A Read.

I Do Love Ya, My Peeps, And I Appreciate Your Time AND Your Patience In This Matter.

As The Song Goes…

-”We’ll Meet Again…

…Don’t Know Where…

…Don’t Know When…

…But I Know…

…We’ll Meet Again…

…Some Sunny Day…“-

How Very VERY Fitting, Eh!?!

Yeah…

…Made Me Smile, Also.

:D

I Simply LOVE Me Some ALEX CROSS Action!!!!!

Originally posted on BIZZAM!!:

Here is the trailer for the film Alex Cross, from director Rob Cohen (XxX, The Fast and the Furious).  Starring Madea, er, I mean Tyler Perry (the Madea movies) and Matthew Fox (Lost), this opens in October.

I have to say, this looks interesting.  And for the first time in forever, here is a Tyler Perry movie I actually want to see (his cameo in 2009′s Star Trek notwithstanding).  I suppose we will finally get to see if he can actually act without being made up as an old, angry, chubby woman.  I think Matthew Fox will be the big draw here.  He is almost unrecognizable.  His transformation is reminiscent of Christian Bale in The Machinistwell maybe not as extreme, but seems to be just as intense.

Take a look:

This is based on the early years of James Patterson’s character Alex Cross, who was played by
