Thank you so much for the gift but I actually have it already. The little "bought" face is behind the icon so it's hard to tell..I'll send it back to you since it's an expensive item. Thanks so much though omfg.
Anyways, the reason I asked was because that's how I feel about The Boomtown Rats or just Geldof in general. I mean you've been listening ti David Bowie for 15 years and I've been listening to the Rats for 15 days. But even so, that's how I feel. The first song I heard hit me with a brick. I cannot properly express the love I have for them and just Geldof. Jenaveve I haven't painted for over a year. I'm a ******** painter and I haven't painted s**t for myself. of course I paint things like commissions, but I haven't woken up and said "Wow I feel like painting today" in so long. I've had absolutely no desire. Unless someone asked me, I couldn't do it. I couldn't paint for myself or just for the hell of it. I couldn't even draw. Remember all those amazing doodle pages I'd do in senior year? I used to be so good at that. I can't do it anymore. I can't draw, I can't paint, I can't even doodle.
But that's where Bob came in. I look at him, I listen to him...and I physically ache to paint. I want to paint so so badly. And today I drew. I doodled in my sketchbook. It was nothing special and it's shabby and scribbly but I ******** drew something nonetheless. And it's all because of him. It's like he reached down to me and pulled me up and just flipped his lyrics around and sang to me, "You can make it if I can." When I listen to them I feel invincible and powerful and confident. Nothing can touch me when I listen to them. I'm not gonna get into this but he is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. One of them, anyways. He and Dan of course...but Dan did all he could do for me. As much as I needed him and wanted his help he couldn't do it for me. I've been so helpless and alone for the past few months since early June and then Bob came and he picked me back up and sent me on my way. He walks right behind me. I can do anything with him there.
So anyways I'm just really excited that you gave them a listen because they are so so so vitally important to me. But that's why I asked.
Okay no The Rats are the band that it's okay to really like their popular songs because their popular songs are popular for a reason: because they're literally the best. Of course all of their stuff is perfect, but their popular stuff is absolutely sublime.
Tell me, if you can remember, when you first listened to David Bowie, When you heard him for the very first time. How did it feel?
