shameless self-promotion


if you've seen this or any part of this or any part of the previous entry or any part of the previous five entries anywhere before, then you perhaps already know and have been a frequent visitor of the RealTime blog over the last few months and then you either find all this as old hat (which means you probably don't read me much anyway) or you are enjoying the expansion of the singularity into a multi-entry composition and in that case, yay for you cuz you are one of the primary reasons I do this in the second place, at least...

so let's get on with it then, right?...

yes, the original RealTime blog entry does expound on to a fifth entry behind the candoor... those of you who've read along at both places know that most of these five entries were not the same (more original babbling here, new and improved, additional bonus material, director's cut, even, yay ya yeah), so you don't feel too cheated having read some of this before (there's always hope)... you could blame it on the ice cream, I suppose... or perhaps it was this:

there is something happening here
what it is is not very clear
there's a TV playing something 'bout the dead
and kids are playing ring around the rosie in my head

then the commercial said
my dream is to leave the world a better place than I found it
if only every millionaire gave away what they did not really need to survive
and if we all only had the guts of the Dixie Chicks
but the show mentioned Stevie Nicks
and I thought of Meg Ryan


and the guts to stand up for what you believe in and the passion to follow your dreams and the will to indulge the most reasonless rhymes and the hunger to love and romance and... it was a much deeper thing than I ever shared before, it is a far far better rest than I've ever known before... but I've been so very close a few times... and I still taste the sweetness of the kisses and the comfort of the rhymes... and I don't think everyone has been there, which may be the saddest thing about this life... because it is a choice anyone can make and so few do... so much fear... so little trust... something happening here...

there's something buzzing in my head
what it is keeps me from going to bed
and if I was not alone it would be a trip to share
if someone could see the face in my underwear

then the computer said
Meg and Dia want you to join them splitting a crme parfait
last night I ate dinner while being watched by a painting of a naked Gwyneth Paltrow
Harry Chapin drove John Lennon and Bob Marley to town
and the crowd only sees the clown
swear to god I'm not lyin

someone cares enough to find the chakra that holds all of your pain
do you let them touch you or do you run away
someone cares enough to find the thread between your heart and your brain
do you let them know or do you deny every word that they say
what game do you play?

control freaks convince themselves they have control
religion tells them that they have a soul
hedonists let life blossom as long as it lasts
there is no tomorrow for those who have no past
and whatever you choose it goes by so fast
why live at half mast?


get up stand up, as Bob Marley said, stand up for your rights... when the whole world is changing, as Harry Chapin said, why should people stay the same... and I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, as John Lennon said, how I love to watch them roll... torn between two lovers, the passion to actively initiate control over the world around you (if that is not merely illusion) and the peace of floating on the rivers of positive energy to wherever they take you (and it sets my mind to wandering, as The Beatles said, where it will go)...

there is something happening here
how do we know who is aware
there's a TV playing something about sex
and we never know just what might happen next
we just have to leave it up to the subtext

then the witch doctor said
Neve Campbell laughed with Mila Kunis and Milla Jovovich
Nicole DeBoer and Sandra Bullock met Janeane Garofalo and Anna Paquin for lunch
or maybe a sance would better suit your mood
are you getting anything here dude?
dreams are free so I'm buyin

long into the night
the doctor laid out the white
smoke rose from the fire
hand held walks on the high wire
you've got the choice every step of the way
everything you do is the game that you play
then I heard the preacher say
will you be a lover or a hater
better figure out something
before it gets any later
heaven has no stairway
but hell has an elevator

maybe it was all a dream
a smoke filled cave, another time
peyote buttons on the sleeve
you think it always has to rhyme?
you can laugh, you can whine
you can draw a bottom line
you can do nothing and call it a crime
but whatever you do
everybody's looking for some sublime


maybe nothing ever meant to you what it meant to me and maybe we could never have the connection I wanted to see, but I know I gave my all and that's the best I can do so in the end I'll leave the rest up to you... what you decide is real is what I'll believe is true, in the little things you do, I'll believe that is true for me and you...

and there is something happening here
maybe you had rufees in your beer
the radio remembered a sweet old tune
the chorus said something about the light of the moon
or maybe something about busting out all over June
Monty Python started as a goon

then the babysitter said
just three simple words that turned a young boy into a young man
please hold me, she said and I thought if only every body gave away their love for free
but there's a price on everything
no matter what the angels sing
so crown the clown or preacher king
be living or be dyin

there is something happening here
someone calls from beyond the fear
there's a TV playing something blue and red
while purple dinosaurs dance wah watusis in my head

then the alien said
words no one understood
so let's just go to bed
there are sweet dreams ahead
so let's all go to bed
let's all go to bed
let's all go to bed
let's all go to bed
let's all go to bed
let's all go to bed


yes, it was time to go to bed but I was not ready so the RealTime babbling continued... the rhyme, by the way, is a bit of cheating cuz the rhyme between the prose above was written without the prose above and was originally uploaded in the myspace blog where all sorts of words are popping out and all sorts of people are popping out too... I wouldn't exactly call it woodworking, though, but that's not the point... I didn't want you to think that rhyme was originally written here and I did want to suggest that the myspace blog might be worth a look...

shameless self-promotion, of course...
