I Am A Hopeless Romantic

I have been re-watching “Mad Men”–Most are familiar with the show.

For those who have been living under a rock for the past two decades,:

The series is all about Madison Avenue.

Advertising in The Sixties.

Anyway,

Brilliant!

It actually brought a tear to my eye

“Rose” is Metaphor for a Woman

Just like “The Yellow Rose of Texas”

I Have been re-visiting the TV Series “Mad Men” From AMC (I think)

Anyway, I love this show!

Why? One may ask.

In a nutshell:

It features lots of alcohol and tobacco abuse.

And relationship abuse.

On both sides of the gender coin.

These are all topics/subjects near and too dear to my heart.

Pretty much Don Draper is my spirit animal.

If you are not familiar with the show, these references will be lost on you.

Oh well.

I tried.

There is so very much more I want to write on this work of TV/Show Brilliance!

Perhaps I shall.

But not right now.

I Had To Listen To This Shite. Every Night. During The Course of the Five Years I Lived in Iraq & Afghanistan I Was Rudely Awakened Thusly

And Right ‘Bout The Time I Had Achieved REM Status. Rarely Would I Even Get Outta My Rack. I’d Just Go Right Back To Sleep. Nothing In Iraq Nor Afghanistan Ever Frightened Me.

It Was Just One More of Joni’s Three Great Stimulants. How I Regarded It Anyway. I Had, By That Time, Already Been Around The World

“You know that life don’t hold no glamour anymore”

Let’s break this down, shall we?

It all hinges on the word ‘that’

And how you interpret the usage of it

“You know ‘that life’ don’t hold no glamour anymore.”

Could mean potential suicide

or…

You know ‘that’ life, could mean “I am fucking tired of being a performing artist and I want a ‘real life’

What do Y’all think?

Which is it?

Could be both

This is the genius of the song

I think the “answer” lies in the last Line:

“Maybe I’ll just go away to stay”

Now that that mystery is solved I can move on

Hey Johnny!

Best “Thing” You Ever “Created!”

I am so FRIkin’ Jealous!

You Lucky Asshole!
