Do Ask, Do Tell Los Angelista

Last week, one of my friends asked me if I would elaborate on something I mentioned in my post on the film American Violet, my "Big Ideas" notebook. I'd never thought about writing about it. I suppose I just take its existence for granted, so I told her I'd write about it one of these days. (Still thinking about what I want to say about it!)

Her request got me thinking: Are there things you, the reader, want me to write about? Things I've mentioned that you say to yourself, "I wish she'd write more about that!" If so, let me know. I'd love to hear your thoughts because blogging is always a two-way street. Yes, I do the writing, but I write for both me AND you.

Also, are there questions you've always wanted to ask me but were too shy to drop me an email and ask away? If so, you can leave me a comment or email me your question. C'mon, you know you're just dying to ask me, "Why are you sooo obsessed with Depeche Mode???"

Honey, because of SONGS LIKE THIS:



Yeah, in a couple of hours I will be outside dying in the boiling heat running to that. Hotness!

Anyway, if I get enough questions, maybe I'll do a top 10 or Thursday 13 list and answer them later this week, so ask away!

Los Angelista,
You girl, are about the ONLY blogger who would ask that! About everybody else is just so self-focused to the extreme they aren't worth reading.
Love the "two-way" street.
I'll try and think of something constructive, lol.

As a total "LOL", my "Word Verification" reads "Unwar". Oh how I wish THAT could be true.

Okay, here's a question off the top of my head. Do you consider yourself totally an urban person or would be just as happy out in the wilds somewhere far away from the big cities (as long as you had full access to the Depeche Mode backlist naturally)?

Daniel,Oh how I wish we could "unwar" a whole lot of stuff. Sigh.

I definitely think more bloggers probably should ask for feedback from their readers because it truly is a two-way street. But, as you can see from the dearth of feedback, maybe folks don't want to two-way street this? Or maybe they're too busy dancing to that Depeche song I included (which was very fun to run to by the way). Anyway, if you do think of something, let me know!

NickLOL, the back catalog would be essential!

GREAT question though! I have pretty much lived in cities my whole life -- but I love the countryside. The scenery is just beautiful and it's so peaceful. Could I live there? Hmm... I thrive on the diversity of cities and the open-minded energy -- so I'll think about it and I'll finish answering on Thursday. :) I remember spending two weeks on my aunt's farm about 2 hours south of Chicago when I was 15 -- it was not fun.

Feedback from readers is what makes blogging worth blogging. I would hate to write hear a hush over Jerusalem...

Lovely Blog BTW...

Check your tweets...I've been posting "updates" on your live Depeche Mode experience! :)

And I actually have something I would like for you to write about--it concerns something that you and I might have in common, which is why some folks (just some, no ev'one, tho)question our blackness because of our fangirl tastes. I've been called into question about my black ID because of EVERYTHING from the way I talk to my choice in music.

And..especially comic books. Yeah, not too many middle aged black women are into it. But I DOUBLE DOG DARE someone to ask for my black ID card just because I'm fiendin' on the upcoming Comic-Con! HULK SMASH!

Well, I would be interested in learning how your parents met and what it was/is like for you to be a biracial person. I'm particularly interested in what it was like to be in that situation in the 60's because interracial marriages were much less common then.

You also mentioned that you were Ba'hai. How were you introduced to that religion?

Angela & Jstele,Oh I'd love to write about that stuff! Good ideas! :)

I would like to see you write about the "Big Idea" book! When are you going to write about that?
