Annual Post

Happy Birthday to Bruce Springsteen. Today he turns 61. His last visit to Charleston (and apparently the entire state of Wet Virginia) to play a gig was 32 years ago. Don't worry, man. Nothing has really changed, except the beat down America you talk about in some of your songs is a little more true now than it was during the Carter administration and I can't think of many places more beat down than good ol' Dubya Vee Ay.

Elephants never forget and neither do music writers living in out of the way places who happen to be fans.

American icon or not: Fuck you, Bruce.

Enjoy your cake.
