Focus.

I no longer care about
focus, or sharpness, or resolution.
In an age where your image can be as small as,
literally, a thumbnail,
and iReport and YouTube dominate...

as long as the inherent image is mine,
large or small,
sharp or shaky,
I'm not concerned with tight focus.

Blurry can be beautiful

Dark Road

DARK ROAD

IT'S A DARK ROAD
AND A DARK WAY THAT LEADS TO MY HOUSE
AND THE WORD SAYS
THAT YOU'RE NEVER GONNA FIND ME THERE, OH NO
I'VE GOT AN OPEN DOOR
IT DIDN'T GET THERE BY ITSELF
IT DIDN'T GET THERE BY ITSELF...

THERE'S A FEELIN'
BUT YOU'RE NOT FEELIN' IT AT ALL
THERE'S A MEANING
BUT YOU'RE NOT LISTENING ANY MORE
I LOOK AT THAT OPEN ROAD
I'M GONNA WALK THERE BY MYSELF...

AND IF YOU CATCH ME I MIGHT TRY TO RUN AWAY
YOU KNOW I CAN'T BE THERE TOO LONG
AND IF YOU LET ME I MIGHT TRY TO MAKE YOU STAY
SEEMS YOU NEVER REALISE A GOOD THING TILL IT'S GONE...

MAYBE I'M STILL SEARCHIN' BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS
ALL THE FIRES OF DESTRUCTION ARE STILL BURNIN' IN MY DREAMS
THERE'S NO WATER THAT CAN WASH AWAY THIS LONGIN' TO COME CLEAN...
HEY YEA YEA...

I CAN'T FIND THE JOY WITHIN IN MY SOUL
IT'S JUST SADNESS TAKIN' HOLD
I WANNA COME IN FROM THE COLD
AND MAKE MYSELF RENEWED AGAIN
IT TAKES STRENGTH TO LIVE THIS WAY
THE SAME OLD MADNESS EVERYDAY
I WANNA KICK THESE BLUES AWAY
I WANNA LEARN TO LIVE AGAIN

HEY HEY HEY

IT'S A DARK ROAD
AND A DARK WAY THAT LEADS TO MY HOUSE
AND THE WORD SAYS
THAT YOU'RE NEVER GONNA FIND ME THERE OH NO
I'VE GOT AN OPEN DOOR
IT DIDN'T GET THERE BY ITSELF ..OOH
IT DIDN'T GET THERE BY ITSELF

Madam's apple

Noun.

A pun on "Adam's apple," it refers to the large bulge on the trachea when it occurs on a woman.
Note: this may be the sign of a male-to-female transvestite or transsexual, or may simply be the luck of genetics.

"Holy shit! Look at that madam's apple on Ann Coulter!"

Feeling like a Queen.
My Melancholy Blues


Written by Freddie Mercury.
Sung by Freddie Mercury
Song Duration 3:33
NEWS OF THE WORLD
1977


My Melancholy Blues

Another party's over
And I'm left cold sober
My baby left me for somebody new
I don't wanna talk about it
Want to forget about it
I'm intoxicated with that special brew
So come and get me, let me
Get in that sinking feeling
That says my heart is on an all time low - so
Don't expect me
To behave perfectly
And wear that sunny smile
My guess is I'm in for a cloudy and overcast
Don't try and stop me
'Cause I'm heading for that stormy weather soon
I'm causing a mild sensation
With this new occupation
I'm permanently glued
To this extraordinary mood, so now moveover
And let me take over
With my melancholy blues

I'm causing a mild sensation
With this new occupation
I'm in the news
I'm just getting used to my new exposure
So come into my enclosure
And meet my melancholy blues

A word to the wise.

Hold your enemies close,

Maybe that has gone

Brooke Astor v Merv Griffin

Seems Ms. Astor, who passed on to the big society table in the sky, left her considerable fortune to others; an amount speculated to be $195 million dollars. Most was spent on various charities and organizations within New York City.

Seems Mr. Griffin left his money in the bank.

If I can find the transcript, Merv extolled the "millions and millions and millions" his 30-second jingle for JEOPARDY earned, every single fucking time it was played. Do-do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do-do-DO-dododododo...

On a side note, this writer used the jingle at least once in the last ten minutes of every college exam he ever administered. While he hated the jingle, he enjoyed even more the frustrated looks of 90 percent of the students.

The other 10% were finished with their exams (usually scoring upwards of 85%), and laughed like hell.

I never paid Merv a cent.

Merv Griffin Dies.

Apparently Merv Griffin was a guest on his own show WHEEL OF FORTUNE.

When he didn't reveal his answer to the question "are you gay?" in the allotted time,
he spun the wheel, and lost it all.

Including his life.

And now, for our next contestant!

Kiss you off my lips
I don't need another tube of that dime store lipstick
Well I think I'm gonna buy me a brand new shade of man
Kiss you off my lips
It's standing room only for a piece of my pigment
So excuse me a minute while I supply demand


I wouldn't be surprised if the house in Shelton was purged of orange.
Starting with the vase, and ending with the kitchen, via the closet.


Ummm.

Oh! Calcutta! closes at the Belasco Theatre this date in 1972.

On a related note, THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST closes after a two+ millenium reign. Word has it, Christ succumbed to the sexual wiles of Mary Magdelene, knocking her up and getting syphilis in the process.

The New York Times, in today's issue, notes an increase in the number of men contracting syphilis. An increasing number of these men are bisexual.

It is not known if they are Roman Catholics.

This is what I get for confusing DANZIG with DAFT PUNK.
Considering I've been aurally satisfied with
The Chemical Brothers, Digitalism, and Justice,
you'd think I'd get wise to the daddy of them all: Daft Punk.

Yep. I'm daft alright:
an expression or state of mind that is ditzy,
blank or just plain empty.

A shout-out over the dance music is def in order for
