My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I don’t really have much today. It was a slow day. Tomorrow night, I’m going to an Alanis Morissette acoustic show, I’m really excited about that, her voice, her honesty, her use of words is so beautiful without a bunch of instruments and a ton of noise.

Otherwise, I’m really very melancholy.

    Alanis is a beautiful woman with a lovely voice. I hope you have a wonderful time tonight.

    Feeling melancholy is part of the human experience, but if you want to get away from it you might try to find something to engage your impressive intellect. Here’s one suggestion:

    I remember when Jagged Little Pill came out. I was a student at UF and had just gotten a new roommate. He was in the throws of depression due to being in the middle of a divorce from a lady who I would say was teetering on the edge of insanity herself. The first time I met her, she almost immediately and out of the blue started talking about Alanis’ song “You Oughta Know” – the extremely dark and arguably hate-filled break up song.

    She was obsessed with the song. I could tell that she herself was living through the hell of ice picks in her head and heart caused by their divorce. So much pain… And I had a rare glimpse at seeing both sides of it. Wow…

    Alanis so perfectly captures the emotional turmoil of such a horrible event in life that so many people live through. She is a true talent indeed…

    As an aside to that – I saw recently on an Oprah “Where Are They Now” broadcast that the song was about her breakup with the goofy blond dude Dave Coulliet (spelling?) from the tv show “Full House”! I don’t think he experienced a fraction of the turmoil that Alanis did. If I’m right, it is a true testament to how different minds process things.

    I too tend to get melancholy… What I find helps is for me to think about melons and collies. This works great because it gets my mind started down all of the different paths that melons and collies can take. Honey Dew or Cantaloupe? Boobies? Maybe one giant cycloptic Uniboob? Brest – the city in Belarus… What was that city founder thinking of, breasts? Hummm…

    And then collies: Lassie, border collies, the dog from “Babe”. It works like a charm. So don’t be melancholy, just redirect your mind towards whatever else positive it can think of. Boobies almost always do the trick for me. (I hope I don’t offend any of your many female followers with the booby references. That is truly is not my intent. If in the event any female offense may have begotten, I say ‘Get over yourself!’ because boobies are not a wholly owned subsidiary of the female body! ‘Manboobs’ do exist. Trust me, I know. I live in San Antonio, once proudly crowned America’s Fattest city)

    You see, I wasn’t feeling particularly great this morning until I saw your post and it got me thinking. Thanks Dude!

    Holy crap, I’m sorry I have written so much. I will try to refrain in the future. But – I do enjoy seeing anything you write for it always gets me to thinking, and for that I simply won’t apologize…


    Prost! John
