Springsteen Speaks

Another day, another walk. In the past eight days, I've walked six and am proud of that. Done crunches and stretches too. And I feel stronger.
But just as crazy.
Got twenty pages into the Springsteen autobiography. We all knew the man could bump some verbs and nouns together in a tasty way, as Juancho might say and I am not disappointed with his style, his voice, as he writes. By the age of seven he'd already been fucked up by an overly permissive grandmother, a drunken father and the Catholic church.
I always said that if you wanted to raise true artists, fuck 'em up as kids as much as possible.
Of course I didn't mean that but it does so painfully often seem to be true.

Well, Terry Gross is interviewing the man himself on Fresh Air right this second.

I think I'll listen.

  1. I once read if you want your children to be creative expose them to eccentric ladies and peculiar gentlemen. It kind of rang true.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
