  1. No one should feel bad for anything they give! We are one here! Double Done!
  2. Little ditty, 'bout Bruce and John Sittin' in plastic chairs, on the pebble lawn.
  3. With a previous grand-puppy off to Florida due to relationship explosion for my son, my daughter has secured a replacement. Cooper is an intelligent pup and wants to be a Sierra trail dog soooo bad!
  4. FWIW, I acknowledge this will be seen as blatant self promotion. I was driving back to my townhouse today, listening to my favorite independent radio station. They were doing a remote broadcast from a liquor store in support of our local food bank. Donate $5, get a Stella Artois tumbler. All donations to to the food bank. This independent radio station has always made me happy by playing Bruce when most would not. Bruce has always made an effort to support local food banks when he has played a concert in a particular neighborhood. I just happened to have a checkbook in my car (shocker in this digital day and age!). I drove out of my way, and gave them a really big (for me) donation. I joked to my wife afterwards that we have way too many Stella tumblers now (I did not take any, but I did take a radio station t-shirt). Thanks for the nudge, Bruce!
  5. I look back at what I did, physically, professionally, 20 to 30 years ago. I look back at what I did physically, casually, 10 to 20 years ago. No way I could do the professional stuff at even a 25% level now. I am just glad when I outpace my children, occasionally, on the casual stuff. I am 15 years younger than our idol. Bruce can do what makes him happy, I am good with that. He and The E-Street Band have given me enough.
  6. BTR, on KEXP Seattle, with a Taylor Swift, Suicide, LCD Soundsytem, Ministry segway!
  7. The most animated singing I have seen young master Bruce perform in a while. JMHO.
  8. It's all still a racket. Drive everyone to an online purchase because, OMG, COVID! OBTW, service fees! So, that interesting session down the street by a familiar artist just got 30% more expensive than the advertised ticket price. And the artist sees NONE of that. Today, I still bought those tickets down the street anyway. Some of my money will get to the artist, I hope. And I get to see live music, which is a win.
  9. I have tramped enough since my first show in 1979, I am good, no more chasing needs to be done. But I am lucky to have been around for both the era of Asbury Park Christmas shows and full album sets, that covered a lot of them. Should a reprise or two come my way, I will not complain.
  10. So lucky to have seen a similar intro in 2003 at the Convention Hall. A highlight of my live music 'career'.
  11. Maybe it is well known, but kinda nice, if you ask me. Just people being people.
  12. I was lucky enough to have gone to one, 12/07/03, with my entire family, after playing the ticket game. My wife sat in the bleachers at the back of the Convention Hall with my 6 year old son (he loved Max!). My daughter (9) and I were on the floor, right up front. I moved her out of the way of the lead yellow shirted security guy with grey hair a lot as he went after folks with recording devices (remember those days?). That got me a copy of the setlist in thanks. We had a nice conversation with Garland Jeffreys towards the end when he came down, and he invited my daughter onstage for the encore. She, bashful, declined (ouch for me!). First time I got to hear songs from the first album with a horn section, live. Incredible. We spent the night in the Berkley. That was, (ahem) an adventure. Good times. Happy Thanksgiving, all!
  13. Against all my advice, my son and his lady got a puppy. You can see how ashamed I am.
  14. I was just happy to see a smile on his face at least once or twice in the video. The Ancient Brooder is not how I like to see him. But, he gets to be who he wants to be, I really have no say. Hell, maybe that's who he is, and if so, that's just fine, at this point, I am owed nothing.
