  1. Today is the May 1st celebration all over the world for the Day of the Worker. I have been talking with friends and colleagues in UK, Romania, Ukraine, Luxembourg…..

    There are roots in pagan rites of Spring but it has also been associated with communist parades. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Day

    In the US in 1886, over 80,000 people started the tradition of Labor and May Day in the US as they marched for the 8 hour day. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-hour_day

    Outside on the streets of Seattle there is going to be a parade, maybe a protest and rumours of anarchists coming to cause trouble…. we shall see, but the differences now between the celebrations in Europe and the negativity towards the ordinary worker in the US are stark

    • I saw the Boss in concert back in 1980, after the release of The River. They did this song and, as Bruce does with much of his music, he built into the song with some biographical stories about growing up and watching his father die one inch at a time.

      The thing is, that Clarence was on the tambourine and another was on a bell, and they were completely out of sync. Somebody had screwed up, and neither was willing to adjust. Meanwhile, Bruce just kept talking. It was excruciatingly painful.

      But then a “miracle” happened. Bruce came in AT A THIRD POINT. And suddenly the entire thing was whole and complete. Even I realized at that moment that what had seemed like an agonizing antiphony was a deliberate whole, only missing the piece that was waiting for Springsteen to come in on.

      Musicians I have spoken with understand this phenomenon. But for me, it was the damnedest thing I’d ever seen or heard.

        • I am not sure about that to be honest. I saw you posting lizzy bout same time ?… .. maybe… but who cares… showbox south…. im pumped … theys still tickets …. you coming ?

  2. If you’re going to do drugs, make sure they’re really really good drugs.
    Otherwise, this could happen.

    • I click on this, knowing that tomorrow I’ll have to clear my history and cookies to keep the most ridiculous stuff from showing up on my ‘recommended’ list on the Youtube homepage.😉

  3. Tarantulas tarantulas
    Everybody loves tarantulas
    If there’s just fuzz where your hamster was
    It’s probably because of tarantulas
