‘Dating a Porn Star’

IS A SONG.  But it did get you to click on this link didn’t it? 😉 “Becca! You tricky creepin’ weasel!”

Oh I know.  How do you think I get my mom to show me where the secret chewing gum stash is?

*Let it be noted that the only reason my mother hides the gum in our house is because I would go through a pack a day if let loose on it.  But that doesn’t stop an addict me. 

Back to the song, they title might be deceiving, it’s actually a sad song but with an insightful last line:

“Dating a porn star, it isn’t all roses
She leaves you home on a Saturday night
You can go crazy with thoughts and supposes
Lose the thin thread between what’s wrong and right

So Starlight won’t you kiss me
For I have missed you so
Just like the others
And all of their brothers
I’ve come to see the show

The strip club crowd looks like a sad constellation
But I hold your heart like the sky holds the moon
I’m cast down outside ’cause they don’t allow boyfriends
Star won’t you tell me you’re coming home soon

Playing cards with the bouncer to let me back in
I hear them announce her and I hear her begin
Sometimes I think that I was born to lose
My money, my shirt, my socks and my shoes

Dating a porn star, it’s bad news brother
You wonder how long ’til the coming of day
And wait by the sparkly curtains of heaven
The stars look so pretty from so far away”

‘Dating A Porn Star’ by the Weepies

Please let me rewind and briefly outline with a BlueberryThought Flow-Line:

12:20pm wednesday….Astronomy 005:

“The moon is moving further away, but the Sun is moving closer.  We can’t look at the sun though because it’d blind us…. it’s the closest star….maybe we don’t really consider it such a brilliant spectacle  because it’s so close?…  Stars move over time too….

…..we don’t always see the same ones depending on the seasons… I suppose we do tend to focus on a ferris wheel of things depending on the season of life we’re in…This is getting weird, Becca, you don’t have to metaphor-ize everything! Somethings are JUST what they are with no fluff!! Yikes you need to just take these notes, do you even know what this clicker question is asking?!

…So we gaze on glittering stars lightyears away…

…are we more fascinated with them because they’re so far?  maybe because we can admire them straight on?

the poor Sun gets no credit, and without it we wouldn’t even be alive to see these stars, but we can’t look straight at our own Star or be blinded...

Stars might be the dazzling extras of life? Our relationships, academics, careers, etc…great but if we’d get too close to them and too far away from Our Star they’d burn us up. Pretty, but certainly not the thing sustaining us.  Our Star is much closer, and without it we wouldn’t  be alive to see any stars at all.

5:00pm-listening to this.

Where do you go when you’re lonely

Where do you go when you’re blue

Where do you go when you’re lonely

I’ll follow you

When the stars go blue

So where do you go when your stars go blue? Or when you realize you’ve been ‘dating’ a star of a sort? Have you been a star-chaser only to find you were chasing the wrong star?
