Searching

Searching for music is like searching for God …

they’re very similar

Searching – David Bowie

David Bowie (David Robert Jones)
Born January 8, 1947 – Died January 10, 2016
English singer, Songwriter, Actor

Searching – David Bowie – Knighthood

In 1999, David Bowie was made a Commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. He received an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music the same year.

However, David declined the royal honour of Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2000, and turned down a knighthood in 2003, stating later [that] “I would never have any intention of accepting anything like that.

I seriously don’t know what it’s for.

It’s not what I spent my life working for.”

“Searching” – David Bowie – Video

and it really only boils down to a few songs – based around

lonliness (to a certain extent),

coupled with isolation,

some kind of spiritual search,

and looking for a way into communicating with other people

and that’s about it

that’s about all I’ve ever written about in 40 years

You Have To Be Responsible – Britney Spears

A Craig Ferguson monologue from over a decade ago is getting renewed attention after this weekend’s Hulupremiere of The New York Times Presents documentary Framing Britney Spears.

now I have been sober for 15 years

there is absolutely no way I have a drinking problem

I don’t have a drinking problem

I can get one fast

but I don’t have a drinking problem

I have a thinking problem

I’m 15 years sober

last week, right, I find out that Guinness has 125 calories a pint

and without a word of a lie

I am thinking maybe I should go on a diet

that’s clearly insane

what Guinness did to me

and I’m thinking – what – it’s only 125 calories?

what could possibly go wrong? …

The Late Late Show monologue, which originally aired on Feb. 19, 2007, shows the host taking a stand that not many, if any, late night figures has been brave enough to take by refusing to make jokes at the expense of Britney Spears.

This woman has two kids

She’s 25 years old

She’s a baby herself

She’s a baby

“As I Come Clean” – Pearl Jam – Note

… Dear Me …

… “as I come clean” …

… I lost a great friend the other day …

… (same way when Jeremy Spoke In Class Today) …

… on one hand, I feel like writing to him …

… but on the other hand, I cannot …

… so I am not quite sure as to how to do this …

… I want to tell everyone that he is no longer here …

… but then again I do not…

… I want to tell everyone how I feel …

… but I don’t know how I feel …

… I want to tell everyone what he meant to me …

… but I haven’t come to terms with that …

… I want to hug his wife and somehow ensure her she will be okay …

… but I am helpless with that endeavor …

… So I guess I will just breathe today …

… I do not know what I will do tomorrow …

… But I will be back …

… Peace …

… Love love love, etc. …

“Just Breathe” – Live At Austin City Limits – Pearl Jam

wayne-pa-probate-lawyers-lucid-intervals-just-breathe-2

Yes I understand
That every life must end
As we sit alone
I know someday we must go

Yeah I’m a lucky man
To count on both hands
The ones I love
Some folks just have one
Yeah others they got none

Stay with me
Let’s just breathe

Practised on our sins
Never gonna let me win
Under everything
Just another human being

I don’t want to hurt
There’s so much in this world
To make me believe

Stay with me
All I see

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
What if I did and I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
‘Cause I come clean

I wonder everyday
As I look upon your face
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take
Nothing you would take
Everything you gave

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
What if I did and I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
I come clean

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’till I die
Meet you on the other side

“You Feckless Thug” – Speech

You’re a son of a bitch, You know that?

She bought her first new car and You hit her with a drunk driver.

What?

Was that supposed to be funny?

You can’t conceive, nor can I, the appalling strangeness of the mercy of God,” says Graham Greene.

I don’t know whose ass he was kissing there, ’cause I think you’re just vindictive.

What was Josh Lyman – a warning shot?

That was my son.

What did I ever do to Yours but praise His glory and praise His Name?

There’s a tropical storm that’s gaining speed and power.

They say we haven’t had a storm this bad since You took out that tender ship of mine in the North Atlantic last year.

Sixty-eight crew.

You know what a tender ship does? Fixes the other ships.

It doesn’t even carry guns. It just goes around, fixes the other ships and delivers the mail. That’s all it can do.

Gratias tibi ago, Domine.

[Thank You, Lord]

wayne-pa-probate-lawyers-lucid-intervals-feckless-thug-2

Yes, I lied. It was a sin. I’ve committed many sins. Have I displeased You, You feckless thug?

3.8 million new jobs, that wasn’t good?

Bailed out Mexico. Increased foreign trade. Thirty million new acres of land for conservation. Put Mendoza on the bench. We’re not fighting a war. I’ve raised three children.

That’s not enough to buy me out of the doghouse?

wayne-pa-probate-lawyers-lucid-intervals-feckless-thug-3

Haec credam a Deo pio, a Deo iusto, a Deo scito? Cruciatus in crucem. Trus in terra servus, nuntius fui, officium perfeci. Cruciatus in crucem. Eas in crucem.

[Am I really to believe that these are the actions of a loving God? A just God? A wise God? To Hell with Your punishments. I was Your servant here on Earth. I spread Your word and did Your work. To Hell with Your punishments. To Hell with You!]
