Good Love

and whammy bars are indeed hard to find!

Where IS that tenderness?  Damn, I wish I was twenty again.

All of the above.

This is a song written by one Susan Werner. Not a main stream artist. I heard the song quite by chance several years ago.  Driving one of my girls to a baseball game, listening to NPR. (It does have some worth after all, public radio!)

I know this woman.  Not Werner.  The one who wrote this list.  More than one woman actually. 

It causes me great sadness to watch them sitting with the list, waiting, hoping, asking me what the problem is.  Do I know any nice single men?  

I know and I tell.  "No, that's not it Jack.  That's not the reason, I'm not like that"  

Well.  I'm standing on the mountain, and it's a clear day.  I can see, but she don't believe.

I'm makin' my list, checkin' it twice
Looking for a lover who is naughty and nice
Looking for an innocent with schoolboy charm
Looking for a kinky little French gendarme
Looking for a felon with a tattooed arm and a leather glove
And I want all of the above
All of the above, that's right

All the above and all of this too
Want me a nature boy paddlin' a canoe
A Wall Street wizard in a pinstripe vest
A doey-eyed Bowie in a little black dress
I once settled for so much less, what was I thinking of
Now I want all of the above
All of the above

All of the above is what I need
All of the aforementioned yes indeed
Feelin' pretty lonely and I must concede
That I need some love
And I want all of the above now
All of the above

Yeah I want all of the above but none of the below
None of what's to follow now no no no
An old man gettin' by on schoolboy charm
A dirty and perverted little French gendarme
A felon with a fully loaded firearm, headin' to Mexico
I want none of the below now
No no no no no no no no

None of the below, none of these please
Nature boy kissin' all the Christmas trees
A Wall Street wizard in a junk bond mess
A doey-eyed Bowie wearin' my black dress
I'm never gonna meet with any real success in that scenario
I want none of the below now

None of the below, nothin' of the kind
None of that was really what I had in mind
True true lovin' baby's hard to find but I know I know
That I want none of the below

And hey, hey
Everybody looking for a Tom Terrific
Hey hey
North Atlantic to the South Pacific
Hey hey
I've done my study and it's scientific and the numbers showed
Take none of the below
And get all of the above
Hey hey hey

All of the above and none of the below
Line up all my candidates in one long row
Line up all my candidates if anybody comes
So far it's just me twiddlin' my thumbs
So far it's just me
Livin' off crumbs

And I want some love
And I want all of the above
All of the above
All of the and only, all of the and only
All all all all all all all of the above now

Seriously now...

The ad attached here seems to have caused an outbreak of hysteria. (More on the origin of that word later.)  I'm not seeing the conspiracy that's alleged to be behind this.  Perhaps I too am an idiot for fueling the fire?  

Does any sane, rational human really believe that putting nail polish on a tot is going to cause long term damage to his psyche?  Apparently some of the folks at fox news do, and have their panties in a bunch over this.  It's a J.Crew ad.

I adore the female form.  As our friend Henrich Heine said in his poem "Unvolkommenheit" from the Lazarus collection: 'Nichts ist vollkommen auf dieser Welt'.  (Nothing in this world is perfect)

That said, I don't know that I've ever seen anyone with an absolutely perfect form. (Well, there was Arnold) Nor do I care to really.  I think some things imperfections are what make them beautiful. "Der Rose ist der Stachel beigessellt.  Ich glaube gar, die lieben holden Engel im Himmel droben sind nicht ohne Mangel."

I particularly like noses, women's noses.  Prominent noses.

I have two favorites. One is like that posessed by her most beautiful self, Marilu Henner.  A little bump right in the middle of the ridge.

The other favorite is a short nose that turns up slightly at the end. Like this one:

I like to run a finger over the bridge.  There are a couple of women aside from my spouse who indulge me in this from time to time.  Usually when I've had a bit too much to drink. It's not an erotic thing for me, I sometimes just have to touch.

One of my favorite cartoonists

This image is from the collection of Kami Tora, a Japanese erotic toon artist.  I believe there is a name for this style of drawing.  His website and fan club have a section for requests.  It's been closed for some time now.  I wish he would open that aspect of his page up again as I have a particular idea that I'd like to see illustrated.  

If anyone can read that symbol in the corner and tell us what it says I would be most appreciative.
