Post Western Stars movie (which was rather lovely) after being forced to sit on my hands for 90 minutes to avoid clapping at an inopportune moment, are:

1) Bruce making his guests pay for drinks at the bar - bloody tightfisted son of a gun. 

2) Could Bruce and Patti not have helped the guy sweep up at the end?   Admittedly he was making rather heavy work of the cleaning, but they could have chipped in - or at least have said thank you as he walked past.

One thought.... 1978 seems like a million years ago. Back then, there were no movie premiers, no lush strings/orchestral arrangements, no somber reflections of the meaning of life.........Just pa

Saw it tonight. On the weepometer scale I held it together (albeit with some sniffling during Drive Fast) and then broke at Wild Horses. I briefly regained composure during Sundown then intermittently

Two thoughts are better than one

This is a humorous post, right?

It’s a lovely film. His voice is a thing of beauty and that band sounds amazing.

Open weeping is allowed while viewing in the theater? Isn’t that distracting to others?

Most importantly, how many you figure were in the theater?

That guy was getting nowhere sweeping!

Unless your name was Lynn Goldsmith.

Ah yes.....yes of course...The Lynn Goldsmith story....For some of us who may not be familiar with the story, here's a Cliffs Notes version as told by Lynn herself....as reported in the New York Daily News. Now, as far as what this has to do with my comment, well, truthfully, I'm not really sure but....anyway...

In the case of Lynn Goldsmith, the liaison developed into a battle of two strong wills and culminated in the one uncharacteristically ugly incident of his career. Apparently loving Bruce has its pitfalls if he is crossed.

Goldsmith is reluctant to discuss the relationship but was prepared to talk about this incident that occurred just after they broke up. As one of the organizers of the charity event, Musicians United for Safe Energy, she was in charge of photo coverage and her agency was to process all the film for publicity releases.

Bruce agreed to appear but balked at the idea of Goldsmith taking pictures. "I called him and said, 'We've got to sit down and talk about this.'

"He came to my house and asked me to stay away. I told him no, I had a job to do, but promised to keep out of his way. And I did. I was about 10 rows back."

The evening coincided with an unwelcome landmark for Springsteen -- his 30th birthday, and he seemed unusually tense. "Tom Petty and Jackson Browne joined him on stage and I stood on my seat to get a classic shot," recalls Goldsmith. "I couldn't believe it. Through my lens I saw he was staring right at me. He wagged his finger as though to say, 'Come here.'

"The kids around me were yelling 'He wants you.' But I knew that look. He jumped down and chased me up the aisle, caught my arm and dragged me onstage shouting 'This is my ex-girlfriend.' Then he threw me across the stage and I was hustled out. It was humiliating."

The two have met since, but Goldsmith insists she still doesn't know why he behaved so violently, while admitting their affair was "the minibattle of the bosses. To give you a clue, look at how he works; he is in total control."

She says she bears him no grudge. "I still have great respect and love for him. He's a very fair man, like Solomon. He'll listen to both sides of a dispute."

We get our answer at the end of the film when candidly reveals that he used to deliberately hurt those people that he loved and cared about.

He says that he still has to work on that even now.

:(

I started laughing real hard when the sweep got underway, but no one else seemed to get the joke. (reminds me of Mr. B trying to vacuum. Is it genetic, I wonder?)

Did he think to himself I've had enough of this shit as he walked off or did he disappear to go off to get a pan or bag for the waste? Guess we'll never know lol

Back then, there were no movie premiers, no lush strings/orchestral arrangements, no somber reflections of the meaning of life.........Just passionate, joyous, unbridled, unencumbered rock 'n fuckin' roll...free from pretense...Free from restricted spontaneous audience participation at appointed times...It was a time like no other.

But still there are many who say that now he's at is best.

NO WAY.

Well, it was a bit of a joke about spontaneous audience interaction and also a subtle reminder that things weren't always rosy just because you could clap when you wanted to. I forget sometimes that humor isn't always your first reaction to things.
