A word about my name

I named my blog Ava Adora. I go by the name Adora. I have no idea why.

Well, actually, I know why. I was obsessed with the song "Ava Adore" by the Smashing Pumpkins, and I was under the mistaken impression that it was, in fact, called "Ava Adora." That's what I get for obtaining all my music from illegitimate sources, I suppose.

I started off calling myself Ava, which at least made a modicum of sense, but decided I didn't like the sound of it. So I went with Adora instead. So now "Ava" is a curious little appendage at the beginning of my pseudonym, and I have no idea what it means or what it's really doing there. For someone who usually over-analyses things to a tiresome degree, this unknown is uncomfortable.

As odd as it is, I don't want to change it, now that I'm starting to be known by it. Besides, I still like the song. It's where my little tagline comes from, albeit modified. So I'm sticking with it. I've gotten a few emails from people addressing me as "Ava," though, so for the record, my name is Adora.

I used to post song lyrics here when I couldn't think of anything to write. I haven't done that in a while, but it's perhaps appropriate by way of explaination for my meaningless name to post the lyrics for "Ava Adore."

It's you that I adore
You'll always be my whore
You'll be a mother to my child
And a child to my heart

We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl, you're the beauty in my world
Without you, there aren't reasons left to find
And you'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me
You'll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head

We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I've left to die
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever leave behind
In time

In you I see dirty
In you I count stars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste God
In you I feel so hungry
In you I crash cars

We must never be apart

Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever seek to find
Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I've left behind
In time

We must never be apart
And you'll always be my whore
'Cause you're the one that I adore
And you'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me

In you I feel so dirty
In you I crash cars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste God

We must never be apart

Very nice. I should write about Locutus - most people have no idea what that means. Ava Adora just sounds great anyway.

Oh, I know what it means. And it makes me think of Patrick Stewart. He's one hell of a sexy old guy, if you ask me.
