It ain’t a crime…

Imageto be ahead of your time!

I relate to Emma Stone’s character “Skeeter” a lot:  We both are writers, we both interview women, we both are unmarried, we both have bad hair days, we both care about certain social causes (and sometimes worry about what our female counterparts are doing!), we’ve both witnessed boys do and say dumb things, but most of all, we both are awesome!

Howard Stern

is a coward who’s show should burn!

figuratively

A STERN sonnet about a miserable man

howard

This man is awful.

His “program” filth.

I’ve never watched it.

And never will.

Howard could stand to cut his hair.

Or maybe he should use some Nair.

That would burn his scalp of sin.

Sorry, hope ya’ll know I’m just JOKin’

Howard-Stern

But seriously words cannot express

How much Stern is a pathetic mess

I HATE that some consider him a star

when he takes freedom of speech WAY.  TOO.  FAR.

But Howard, wouldn’t it be fun.

If your story turned out like that of the Prodigal Son?

🙂

Repentance is real ya’ll; even for the vilest of sinners.

Jesus_Christ

It is.

When 2 of your favorite artists collaborate?

Lyrics here

That’s what life is all about!

Jason Mraz and Travie McCoy are both huge sources of inspiration, hope, humor, and joy for me.  They are both so human and down to earth.  And SOOOOO unbelievably talented.  Lyrically, musically, stylistically, free-styling, song-writing, collaborating and solo work: you name it-they’ve got it!  Not only that, but from what I have read and seen about them, they both seem like pretty decent guys too.   And I know I’ve said this like 10x before, but Mr. Mraz is from Virginia, just like me!  Seriously, these guys bring me joy through their art.  Don’t want to get my hopes up, but I would love to meet them just to tell them as much.

Here’s my take on one of JM’s songs.

And here’s me doing my own “interpretation” of one of TM’s songs.

Thank you guys.

Thanks.

READERS!

1) When have your original plans worked out?

2) When have you needed to move to another letter in the alphabet?

figuratively and/or literally

I have responsibilities…

Image   Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 5.20.47 PM Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 5.22.13 PM

but only because I choose to have responsibilities.

I believe in accepting legitimate criticism and also in getting out of my comfort zone, but if anyone ever tries to force or pressure me into anything in a manner or form with which I am not comfortable in any way at all…

I’M GONE!

Image

figuratively AND literally…

 But as is always the case, I am kind and civil about this.  Ain’t no James Dean, “rebel without a cause” thing going on here.  This is NOT me being selfish or evading (legitimate) responsibility in any way at all.

  I desire to work hard and stretch myself to serve others.

Still though.  The number 1 person on my list is ME!

Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 5.17.18 PM

and for that I will NEVER apologize…

🙂

READERS!

1) What responsibilities do you choose to have?

2) What is your LINE OF PROPRIETY when it comes to responsibility?

Dewey (eyed) Beauty Gets Lost in the Library…

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 5.06.48 PM

I have a confession to make that may cause you to question my ethos as a thinker/writer/scholar:

Back to December all the time…

(don’t love this song, but am sad I didn’t mention DECEMber in the video AND I love Taylor’s whole look here…)

Anyways, libraries can be amazing, but even the great American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson knew that they could be problematic:

“Meek young men grow up in libraries, believing it their duty to accept the views, which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon, have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon were only young men in libraries, when they wrote these books.”

          ~The American Scholar (this address is SO powerful.  Read (about) it!

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 5.02.07 PM

And to further illustrate (figuratively AND literally!) this idea of library limits,

allow me to borrow some palabras from my dear friend:

They read all the books, but they CAN’T FIND THE ANSWERS!”

Let’s ask ourselves what are the extremes/outliers to all the stuff available to us today..

Where is the wisdom in all this knowledge?

Pay Day!

Explore More Issues Here:

1)  Line of Propriety

2)  Sunburn stuff

3)  Bad hair day means good writing day!

4)  Bragging?  Guilty.  YOU WOULD TOO!

Oh, and by the way, I was singing a version of a John Mayer song (SHOCKING, right?)….

Lyrics here. 

The song is VERY interesting.  The melody/guitar itself is hauntingly beautiful, but the words are contradicting the story-teller’s true convictions (unreliable narrators are FASCINATING).  You see, Johnny is lonely and trying to convince himself that he can engage in self-destructive behaviors (drugs, women, etc.) and it won’t effect him.  Sad.

Have done my own version of “Who Says.”  And I will DEFINITELY include it soon…

But Back to the Benjamins:

Laughing all the way to the bank…

PS.  The check wasn’t for a ton.  And also it will not even begin to cover the costs of medical expenses I will incur from the pending thunderbolt of blasphemy I will shortly receive due to my comparing myself to Brad Paisley.
