“ROAD TO NOWHERE” by TALKING HEADS (1985): A Song That Makes Me Smile!

Well We Know Where We’re Goin’…

…But We Don’t Know…

…Where We’ve Been…

…And We Know What We’re Knowin’…

…But We Can’t Say…

…What We’ve Seen…

…And We’re Not Little Children…

…And We Know…

…What We Want…

…And The Future Is Certain…

…Give Us Time To…

…Work It Out. ..

ROAD TO NOWHEREIs Totally Wonderful Song From The 1985 TALKING HEADS AlbumLITTLE CREATURES!!!

…We’re On A Road To Nowhere…

…Come On Inside…

…Takin’ That Ride To Nowhere…

…We’ll Take That Ride…

…I’m Feelin’ Okay This Morning…

…And You Know…

…We’re On A Road To Paradise…

…Here We Go…

…Here We Go…

The 1985 Single Album ForROAD TO NOWHERE By TALKING HEADS !!!

I Awoke This Morning In The Mood For Some Quality Jams From…

TALKING HEADS

…My OTHER Favorite Band Of All-Time!!!

If You Thought People Gave Me Odd Looks For Loving DEPECHE MODE

…Then You Should Have Seen/Heard Them When I’d Pop On My TALKING HEADS Tunes.

;)

I Learned Very VERY Quickly That Most Peeps My Age Simply Didn’t Dig Their Music At All.

And Ya Know What, Kiddies…

…That’s Perfectly Fine With Me.

I’ve ALWAYS Preferred To Look At It In The Lighter-Vein Of…

"Those Fools Don't Know What They're Missin', Fo Flippin' SHO!"

What Do You Think?

Am I Out-Of-Line?

Or, Are We On The Same Page?

I’m Promise I’m Hoping For The Latter!

;)

Now…

…I LOVE Me Some TALKING HEADS

…And While There Are Many MANY Jams Of Theirs I Truly LOVE And ENJOY…

…This Song…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Off Of The Album…

LITTLE CREATURES

…Just Stood-Out To Me, Today.

Most Folks Who Happen To Be TALKING HEADS Fans Seem To Feel Their Music Really Started Going Downhill Following The Huge Success Of The Live Concert Album…

STOP MAKING SENSE

…And, To An Extent, They’re Correct.

Most Of Their Greatest Jams DID Come-Out Before That Album.

HOWEVER…

…That Doesn’t Mean Everything That Followed It Was A Pure Crap, Ya Know?!

And If We’re Discussing The BEST They Had To Offer AFTER That Album…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Would Rank At The Very VERY Tippy-Tip-Top, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

It’s A Jam That Takes Me Back To My Childhood…

…And Does So Without Much Effort.

ROAD TO NOWHERE

…Was The Very First Song By TALKING HEADS I Had The Pleasure Of Hearing OTHER THAN The Tracks Off Of The “STOP MAKING SENSE” Album.

It Quickly Became A Personal Favorite…

…And It Remains So To This Very Day.

I Remember It Even More-So Because Of It’s Wonderfully ODD/CRAZY Music Video.

---> (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWtCittJyr0) <---

((That’s A Link To The Video On The Ole YouTube If You’re In The Mood For It.))

:D

ANYWAY…

…I Sure Do Hope Y’all Have An Amazing Day.

The Weather Is Acceptable Outside Right Now…

…So I Think It’s Time For Yours Truly To Pop His Sneakers On And Go For A Little Walk-About.

Please Take Care Of You For Me, My Peeps.

I Shall Holla At Y’all Later On, I’m Sure!!!

Until Then…

;)

:D

“He Told Me A Heart Can’t Smile… …If It’s Filled With Tears…”

“…Growing Up, I ThoughtIts All Gone“…

Now It Comes Back To Me, Again

“…HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

I Try To Set The Night On Fire

I Try To Set The Night On Fire

I Try To Set The Night On Fire…”

“…HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

I Try To Set The Night On Fire

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

I Try To Set The Night On Fire

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

I Try To Set The Night On Fire

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

I Try To Set The Night On Fire…”

… … …

.. ..

.

Over This Past Weekend, I Was Introduced To The Band…

PHOENIX

…And This Song…

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

…Which I Immediately Fell In Love/Lust With.

It’s Perky.

It’s Quirky.

It’s Catchy.

It Makes Me Smile.

Can’t Ask For Much More From Your Music, Right???

RIGHT!!!

HOLDIN ON TOGETHER

…Was Released On The Album…

ALPHABETICAL

…In 2004.

I Know I’d Heard This Little Tune On The Radio At Some Point, And I Liked It, But Knew Absolutely Nothing About It, Nor The Band Performing It.

Now, Well, I Simply Can’t Get Enough Of It.

I’m Unsure How Many Times I’ve Listened To It In The Past Few Days, But I Know It’s A Metric-Ass-Ton.

But, For Me, That’s Just How I Roll.

I Find Something New That I Greatly Enjoy, And I Go For It.

If It’s Song, I Listen To It Over And Over.

If It’s A Movie, I’ll Likely Watch It Multiple Times In A Short Span Of Days.

If It’s A Book, I’ll Read It All The Way Through, And Then Do So Again.

I Get On My Kicks, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

A Lot Of You Are Exactly The Same.

I’m Just Sure Of That.

I Just Hope Y’all Enjoy This Little Number.

This Song Is Now Permanently Linked With A Special Someone In My World.

Every Time I Hear It, I Think About Him.

Sometimes, That’s A Wonderful Thing.

Sometimes, That’s A Horrid Thing.

It Really Depends On My Mood, To Be Honest.

Nevertheless, I Continue To Listen To It…

…And Love It…

…And Enjoy It.

Period.

Feelings Are Funny Things, And It’s Crazy How They Can Be Linked To Something Like This.

But, That’s Life.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

I Included A Link To The Song, So PLEASE Give It A Listen.

Let Me Know What You Think.

You May Not Enjoy It As Much As I Do…

…Or You May Enjoy It Even More.

You’ll Just Have To Give It A Go And Find Out!!!

Ready For A Musical Adventure???

AWESOME!!!

Then Let’s Go!!!

Have A Grand Day, Kiddies.

Take Care AND Be Good.

;)     :D     :)

What The Hell Is Going On Around Here?!?

Honestly, My Peeps, So So Very Much Has Been Going On.

Life Has Been Quirky…

…Odd…

…Frustrating…

…Wonderful…

…Horrible…

…Exciting…

…Trying…

…Oh, So Very Very Trying.

BUT…

…I’ve Been Weathering It All Quite Well, I Would Say.

I Know It Has Been A While Since We’ve All Shot-The-Shit…

…Kicked-It-Back…

…Talked-Some-Shop…

…BUT…

…I Sincerely Promise There Have Been Plenty Of Quality Reasons.

You See, My Peeps, I’ve Been Trying Very Very Hard To Have A Life.

It’s Not Something I’m Really Accustomed To.

Like, At All.

But, I Have Been Trying.

I Got Myself A Man.  :D

I Got Myself A Job.  :)

I Got Myself Fired From Said Job Before It Really Got Going.  :(

I’ve Been Playing The Helpful/Dutiful Son.

I’ve Been Playing The Helpful/Dutiful Grandson.

I’ve Been Playing The Helpful/Dutiful Boyfriend.

I’ve Been Playing For The Sake Of Playing.

I’ve Been Having FUN For A Freakin’ Change, And Trying To Enjoy Every Moment Of It.

:D       :)       ;)

Sadly, It Hasn’t All Been Fun And Games.

I’ve Had Multiple Family Members Die Over The Past Few Months.

:*(     :*(

I’ve Suffered Through A Couple Bouts Of Fairly Extreme Illness.

:(

Life Has Really Been Bringing The Heat, But Totally Keeping Me Honest With A Steady Supply Of Curve-Balls.

Sheesh, I Tell You.

Sheesh, Indeed.

:\

I’m Writing This Today Because I’m Looking To Begin Again.

I Miss Working On This Blog A Bundle, Though I Admit I Could Have Come Back To Y’all A Lot Sooner.

But, I Chose To Continue Being A “Reblog-Whore” And Just Let Things Ride.

I Still Plan To Be A “Reblog-Whore”, But I’ll Be Injecting Myself Into Things Whenever I Can.

;)

TODAY…

…APRIL 10TH…

…Is My Birthday.

Everyone Always Asks The Same Question:

"DO YOU FEEL ANY OLDER?"

Honestly, My Peeps, Yes Yes YES I DO.

Period.

I Know I’m Not THAT Old, But I’m Old Enough.

Old Enough To Realize I Have To Continue Trying To Have A Life.

Old Enough To Understand How Important It Is To Continue Onward.

Old Enough To Feel Old Enough.

I’m Tired, My Peeps.

I’m So Very Tired.

But, There Are Still Duties To Perform…

…And Life Goes On.

I’m Going To Leave Y’all For Now.

But, I Do Promise To Be Back Again.

I’ve Been Writing A Lot.

Pen-To-Paper, Ya Know?

Perhaps I’ll Be Sharing More Of That With Y’all.

I Plan To.

So Let Us All See If I Actually Make That Happen.

I Really Do Plan To.

As I Exit (for now) I’m Going To Leave You With A Song.

A Song That Has Quickly Become A Personal Favorite.

DEPECHE MODE Has Just Released Their Latest Album, DELTA MACHINE, And I’m Totally In LOVE/LUST With It.

Depeche_Mode_-_Delta_Machine (via Wikipedia)

The Song For Today Is…

SOOTHE MY SOUL

…And It’s A Real Kicker!

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Enjoy It.

I Find It Simply Exceptional!!!

Please Take Care, My Peeps.

I’ll Write More When I’m Able.

Until Then…

…Take Care…

…Be Good…

…See Me Soon…

…And Talk To Me Sooner!!!

Much Love To Y’all, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

:D     :D     :D     :D     :D

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

:D     :D     :D

I Remain Conscious, Even While Dreaming In My Sleep.

—At Least, I’m Pretty Sure I Do.  It Feels Like I Do.  When I Wake-Up Wake-Up, I’m Exhausted. Regardless Of How Long I’ve Laid There, I’m Exhausted.

It Doesn’t Make Sense.

I Remember My Dreams… …All Of My Dreams.

My Dreams Are (put mildly) Simply Fu*ked-Up.

Period.

They’re Wild.

They’re Vivid.

They’re Crazy.

They’re Awesome.

They’re Dangerous.

They’re Beautiful.

They’re Horrid.

They’re Amazing.

They’re Disturbing.

All At The Same Time.

If Our Dreams Are A Reflection Of Ourselves, Our True Selves, Then I Sincerely Haven’t A Clue As To What To Say Next.

Perhaps I Sincerely Shouldn’t Have A Clue As To What To Say Next.

I Already Feel Like An “Odd Duck” In Many MANY Ways, So I Just Hope That, In This Instance, I’m No More Odd Than The Rest Of You.

Dreams Are A Very Funny Thing, My Peeps.

Sometimes, I Wish They’d Come True.

Sometimes, I Pray They Don’t Come True.

Sometimes, I Know They’re Going To Come True Whether I Want Them To Or Not.

Sometimes, Sometimes, Sometimes.

Sheesh.

Let The Day Begin, Already.

Time, Brother, You’re Holding Me Up.

I’ve A Place To Go…

…A Person To See…

…A Life To Live.

Right, Kids?!

RIGHT!!!—

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

I’ve Been Putting Pen-To-Paper So Much…

…I’ve Nearly Lost Myself Here.

I Don’t Mean To Neglect Y’all, My Peeps, But I’ve Been Trying To Take Things In A Whole New Direction.

New For Me.

New For You.

New For Us.

My Fire…

…My Drive…

…My Want…

…My Need…

…My Desire…

…They’re All Returning.

Returning Harder And Faster Than I’d Honestly Known Was Even Possible.

I Was Burning-Out.

The Fire Had Seriously Dimmed.

It Felt Choked.

Smothered.

Almost Strangled Out Of Existence.

And Then It Happened.

The Spark Came Into My Life, And It’s Not Letting Me Go…

…I’m Not Letting It Go.

The Fire Is Burning Hotter And Brighter Than It Has In Forever.

Things Are Changing.

Inside And Out, They’re Are Changing.

And I’m Loving It.

I’m Loving Every Bit Of It.

Am I Setting Myself Up For Failure?

Maybe.

I Don’t Really Care.

No Risk, No Reward.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

Soon, You’re All Going To Start Noticing The Transitions I’m Working-Out.

You’re Going To Hear Me Talk A Lot About TheClean Slate And How It Can Literally Mean Everything.

I Wanted Nothing More Than A Clean Slate

…AFresh Start

…A New Beginning

…However You Wanna Put It.

Now, I’m Getting That Chance.

I’m Making That Chance.

I’m Taking That Chance.

It’s Mine.

All I Have To Do Is Own It.

And, Own It, I Shall.

:)       ;)       :D

And Now, For Your Listening Pleasure, The Song That Totally Says Everything I Need It To Say Right This Moment…

INSIGHT

by DEPECHE MODE

Ultra - Depeche Mode (via Amazon.com)

…From Their 1997 Album “ULTRA” !!!

Enjoy It, My Peeps.

You Already Know I Do…

…I Am…

…I Will.

Always And Forever, I Will.

I’ve Given You An Insight Into MY Life…

…I Just Hope To Reward Your Loving Patience.

Later On, My Peeps.

We’ll Be Talking More VERY Soon!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

I Know I’ve Been A Reblog Whore Of Late, But I DO Have My Reasons…

Mainly, Ive Been Out Living My Life.

And, Honestly, It Has Been WILD.

Not WILD As InExotic“…

More LikeChaotic“…’ish.

My Emotional Roller-Coaster Continues.

But, Without Some Of Those Emotional Lows, Would I Really Appreciate All Those Emotional Highs So So SO Keenly???

Doubtful.

Doubtful, Indeed.

Im Taking The Good With The Bad, But Im Content With The Give And Take.

It Seems Only Fair.

My Head And My Heart Have BOTH Been Working Overtime.

Often, Theyve Been Working Said Overtime In Opposing Manners.

And, While There Are A Few Moments Ive Disliked, I Remain Happy.

Thats The Primary Goal, Right?!

The Happiness?!

The Joy?!

The Good Stuff?!

Thats The Game Im Playing, Right Now.

I Dont Really Know If I’m Winning Or Losing

But I FEEL Like Im Winning.

Maybe Thats The Whole Point?!

Maybe?!

I Can Handle AMaybe?!” Alllll Niiiiiiiiight Loooooooong!!!

:)       ;)       :D

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

“Feeling Like A Freak On A Leash…”

“…((You Wanna See The Light))…

Feeling Like I Have No Release

…((So Do I))…

How Many Times Have I Felt Diseased?…

…((You Wanna See The Light))…

Nothing In My Life Is Free

Is Free…”

“…Sometimes I Cannot Take This Place

Sometimes It’s My Life I Cant Taste

Sometimes I Cannot Feel My Face

Youll Never See Me Fall From Grace…”

“…Something Takes A Part Of Me

You And I Were Meant To Be

A Cheap Fu*k For Me To Lay

Something Takes A Part Of Me. …”

What Can I Tell You About This Song…

FREAK ON A LEASH

by KORN

???

Hmm.

Well.

Hmm.

I Suppose I Can’t Really Say To Much.

This Is An Instance Where It’s Best If I Keep My Mouth Shut.

BUT…

FREAK ON A LEASH

…Is A Very Awesome…

…Very Special Song In My World.

It Holds So Much Of A Deeper Meaning.

And, Honestly, I’d Love To Say A Whole Lot Right Now.

But, I’m Holding Back Because I Don’t Think It Would Be Taken Tooooo Well.

I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of This Song Since I First Saw The Music Video In 1999, While I Was In The Navy.

Upon Hearing It Back Then, I Was An Instant Fan.

Period.

Sooo…

…Today I’m Sharing It With Y’all.

I Know, I Know…

…The Band KORN Isn’t Everyone’s Cup-O-Tea.

Then Again, A Lot Of The Music I Write About Isn’t For Everyone.

There Are Likely More People Whom Hate This Song Than I Really Realize.

But, For Now, I Don’t Care.

I Had To Get This Song Out Of My Head, As I’ve Been Listening To It A LOT A LOT Over The Past Two-Weeks.

And You Know Me…

…I Get Things Out Of My Head By Way Of My Bloggin’ing.

So…

…Here I Am…

…Bloggin’ing ’bout It.

I Sure Hope This Works, To Be Honest.

Perhaps It Will.

Perhaps It Won’t.

But, I’m Still Trying.

That’s All One Can Really Do, Right?!

Try Try TRY AGAIN!!!

We Shall See, My Peeps.

We Shall See, Indeed.

:D

PLEASE Have A Damned Decent Day.

And, I Sure Hope Y’all Have A Wonderful Weekend!!!

L8r L8r, My Tater-Tots!!!

;)

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Quickly, What’s On Now?!? –SEAN CONNERY As JAMES BOND -007- In “YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE” (1967)

You Only Live Twice (1967)

I Consider…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

(1967)

…To Be The Most Underrated Of The…

SEAN CONNERY As JAMES BOND

…Adventure Epics…

…And It’s A Damn Fine Adventure At That, My Peeps!

:D

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…Was Directed By…

LEWIS GILBERT

…Whom Would Later Helm The JAMES BOND Adventures…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…And…

MOONRAKER

(1979)

…Both Of Which Are Personal FAVES Of FAVES!

:D       :D

Alright, The Gist Of The Flick Is This:

The World Sits On The Brink Of WORLD WAR III.

An American Spacecraft Has Disappeared, Following An Encounter With An Unknown Spacecraft.

The Americans Are Blaming The Russians For Entire Incident.

(((Of Course They Are!)))

They (The Americans) Make It Known They’re Going To Launch Another Spacecraft In Just A Few Weeks.

If ANYTHING Happens To It, They Will Consider It An Act Of War!

The British Government, On The Other Hand, Does NOT Believe The Russians Are Responsible.

This, However, Must Be Proven Before Something Does Happen That Could Ignite The World Into Full-Scale Nuclear Armageddon!

Sooo…

…The British Government Fakes JAMES BOND‘s Death, Freeing Him To Go On The Hunt For The Truth.

They’re Sending BOND To Japan, Where They Believe The Before Mentioned “Unknown Spacecraft” Originated.

And Now, You Know The Basic Plot For This Epic Romp!

So, What’s Gonna Happen?

Did The Enemy Originate From Japan?

If So, Will BOND Be Able To Locate And Destroy Them In Time?

Or, Will The World Be Pushed Beyond Said Brink And Eventually Become A Giant Fireball In Space?

Hmm?

HMM?!?

Well…

…Wouldn’t Y’all Rather Watch It And Find-Out For Yourselves?!?

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

;)       :D       ;)

I Will Tell You It’s A Helluva Ride, My Peeps, And A Helluva Lot Of Fun!!!

Some Of My Favorite Parts?!?

“LITTLE NELLY”

(((Trust Me, You'll Get It When You See It!)))

KEN ADAM‘s Eye-Popping Production Design.

NANCY SINATRA Beautifully Singing The Film’s Theme Song.

The Wonderfully Amazing VOLCANO LAYER.

But, Most Of All, My Favorite Part Is The Big Reveal Of JAMES BOND‘s Arch Enemy/Nemesis, “ERNST STAVRO BLOFELD“, Played To Creepy, Evil Perfection By An ALL-TIME FAVE Of FAVES Actor…

DONALD PLEASENCE

!!! !!!! !!!

:D

As I Said, I Consider This Flick…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…To Be The Most Underrated Of All Of The BOND Flicks To Star…

SEAN CONNERY

…And I Think You’ll Totally Understand Why Once You’ve Checked-It-Out.

Since We Only Live But Once, My Peeps, You Should Sincerely Check-Out…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…Before You Finally Just, Ya Know, Check-Out.

Period.

Happy Movie Watching, My Peeps!!!

ENJOY YOURSELVES!!!

You Already KNOW I’m Doing So, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-
