And…fuck he’s making it hard! It’s a phenomenal write-up…and the thing I actually love most about him…despite all the silly ogling. I think I am genuinely in love with this man…
Oh, how I want to reply. To say SOMETHING…if nothing more than “Wow!” and “Thank you!” You know…all that thought-provoking stuff that would have him talk to me again…
Full of intelligence, wit, and downright silliness…
Jim Kerr…please stop being intangibly beautiful and breaking my heart!
(For some reason, again…I can’t embed the link to SMO FB properly, so I have screengrabbed the post. But, of course, if you are on Facebook you can read it for yourself…and the amazing replies and interactivity he is now once again having with fans. Feeling free to reply, no doubt, without worrying about some overzealous, lovesick puppy following his every word…)
Today I will be mostly trying to spot nipple on a rather resplendent and rippled chest.
Ooh I do love a skinny boy.
YES! It is not lost on me the irony…
But I can’t help what I like to be aesthetically pleasing.
The fact that I am a washed out old hag with tits that flop to her knees and legs the size of tree stumps is neither here nor there.
Oh, I have done some painting today too. If only I could endlessly paint (well!) this fine specimen of perfection. Right down to that luscious, kinky folded ear. Nom nom nom!!
(Damn, I should have nibbled on it at Bridlington! I WAS ON HIS LEFT SIDE FFS!)
Just in case it disappears off the SMO visitor wall…and if he ever visits this sorry excuse of a fan blog (god knows why he would!)….a question:
Now…I know I have probably not been ingratiating myself to you much lately, Jim, and you probably won’t reply…but I have to ask anyway.
This is probably why I like vinyl…because I sound like a scratched record! Lol. BUT….the argument that struck me for your….”lack of enthusiasm” (you can have some of mine if you like? I obviously have more than any single human needs!) at yesterday’s Roundtable was tunes lacking melody.
I’m obviously not a musician and never worked in music, so I must not be comprehending what you mean by melody. Your statement on this confuses and perplexes me.
From what I understand from what *I* believe melody to be (I have Wiki’ed this and everything to try to comprehend what you mean)…you have expressed a deep like for music that is deemed not to have melody or at least doesn’t seem to have melody at the heart of it…like motorik (shying away from using the K-word, so let’s use the much more pleasant “motorik”). Neu!, La Dusseldorf, Kraftwerk, et al.
So I suppose my question is…what is melody to you? Can you explain it to me more? (Time permitting, of course. If you would be so kind.) Perhaps I’m showing myself up to be a dunce…but only you know what you mean by “melody” (or your interpretation of it.)
I’m sorry to ask. I’m sorry to be a nuisance, but I just want to understand it.
I tend never to use Vince Barker’s photos. If I do share them, I usually do via linking to his Facebook page.
But this one…well, Jim’s face was a picture 🙂
And if I’m gonna be back in the bad books…I might as well share a smile and delude myself I’ll get one of these again…one day.
