Good Morning World! It couldn’t be a more beautiful day in LA.
Last night I finished reading a biography on Freddie Mercury, “Mercury” by Leslie-Anne Jones. It was a fascinating read; how interesting it would have been to meet him. Later today, I’ll begin my autobiography of Boy George. I hope it’s good a one. I’ll never forget the first time I saw his “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” video on TV. Because we didn’t have cable at home, we saw it on MV3 staring KROQ DJ Richard Blade.
The next day at school everyone was talking about it. Was it a boy or a girl? A few years later, the same question would be asked of me while I walked home from high school past my old elementary school. The kids playing outside ran to the fence and between themselves asked, “Is it a boy or a girl?” I remember wanting to pull down my pants to show them my dick and say, “It’s a boy!”
The piece here is titled, “Boy Oh Boy Jesus.” It’s another piece from my 'Losing My Religion' series. Boy George and a crucifix inspire it. It’s been interesting working on this series; I plan on doing a few more pieces this weekend. I’m sort of regressing to my high school days when music was a huge part of my life and when so many questions about God and religion went unanswered.
This random quote by Albert Einstein made me laugh this morning; I got a silly visual in my head. “I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice.”
Have a beautiful weekend. ☺
