I was supposed to see GaGa’s Monster Ball in my hometown of Sacramento, CA. It would have been the 2nd Monster Ball I have been to. Alas, many conditions arose to where I felt inappropriate attending given my life situations. I sold my ticket to my roommate’s friend so the two of them could see it together.
I figure, GaGa will be on tour for the next twenty years straight and will be around my parts soon for the Born This Way Ball. But still.. Seeing a couple of statuses from friends going to the show and who are now AT the show smacks my stomach around a bit.
The Monster Ball will change your life. There’s so much work onstage from ALL the acts and offstage by a large amount of the fans. It’s larger than GaGa, her music, the fashion, etc. It’s simply captivating and absolutely memorable. I honestly can’t wait to go the next “Ball” installment GaGa comes up with.

Certainly, for me, being out is a composition of several other things. But fundamentally, no matter how hard I refuse or how much I immerse myself in the flame I carry (believe me, it’s BRIGHT & HEAVY), it’s all about love. How I believe every single person I meet, see, or hear about should be able to have undeniable bliss. To find love. No matter who they are. Young, old, fat, slim, tall, short, blonde, brunette, blue eyed, brown eyed, homosexual or homophobic. We all NEED love. I want that for everyone because if everyone had that, and had it unconditionally, I feel we all could push to want it for the rest of our world.
Can I quickly address the fact that I don’t think I have the same mind set as most bloggers who have been here for a while and maintain the notion of being some sort of hierarchy for this website, because that’s all it is after all, a website. It is so foolish. To think that your slice of the…
