Re-runs

In a vague, hopeless attempt to keep you lot entertained while I am pissing (get it?) my life away, you can go and read one of my earlier posts. It's fucking brilliant, of course, but it was from back when I first started out, and was mainly blogging to myself, so you probably haven't read it.

No, that post was wrong on so many levels it made my hair bleed. It also made my pants wet. And I disagree strongly that those rippling muscles of his make him look gay. I notice with surprise that you didn't comment on his divine arse.

I still love Bruce's music but having seen some recent documentaries about him I do think he comes across as a bit of a pretentious wanker, and in the 'Making of Born To Run' doc - the best film of its kind I've ever seen, and to be found on the 30th Anniversary box set edition of Born To Run - he's such a scary control freak I nearly ran away.

He's shite and if your husband wants to fight me over it he knows where to find me. He was/is actually very popular in the UK, but so is line dancing and reality tv.

All this banjo music gives me a headache.

great reads, sugar! where the hell were all ya'll when i lived in socal??? hope you're feeling better!

Troika said...

Why did you have to write so much to explain why he's so fucking shite?

A simple 'He's an American singer", would have sufficed.

He's not the fucking Arctic Monkeys, is he?

Gaijin Girl said...

I think his old stuff is brilliant, but everything after Born in the USA is utter shite.
I am ashamed to say I had a huge crush on Springsteen as a lass and went out with a bloke just because he looked like Bruce. Mate, that was such a mistake. One of many actually, but I digress...

Brucemania (Brucellosis to you, Sparra, Eddie and troika) hit 2 years above me at school but left me pretty much unscathed. I liked Born In The USA but haven't really paid much attention to him other than that. Nobody has told me I'm missing anything so I continue to not bother with him. Too much other stuff; too little time.

Hope you're doing a wee (hardeharhar) bit better. Burny piddle is no fun, although they do call it the honeymooner's disease so here's hoping it was at least fun getting it.

Sorry I wasn't around here the other day when you posted to wish you well then. I don't have a feed to tell me when people post. Might want to get me one of those at some point.

Here's to you, Sparr', cranberry pills do work. When I was pregnant with the girls I had bladder infections up the ying-yang, so to speak. Loads of water and, if can stomach it, try dissolving bicarbonate of soda with it too.

And nothing beats a good strong sulpha drug.

Eddie, I'm a sex machine, not a fighter.

Eddie Waring said...

Spouse Sparrow, Where I'm from mate it's okay to be both, at the same time an' all.

Sassy Sundry said...

I can't show that to my brother-in-law (he loves "the Boss of Poopy Pants" too), but oh, that was funny. He really does look constipated most of the time, doesn't he?

I hate that Dancing in the Dark video. Courtney Cox should have kicked him.

Footie -- "It also made my pants wet."

I'll bet that happens a lot when you think about Bruce Springsteen.

"I notice with surprise that you didn't comment on his divine arse."

His arse is vile. He looks like he spends a lot of time clenching, to define his arse muscles, which is probably why he also looks constipated.

Eddie -- Line dancing in the UK.... What's that about? Wrong, so very wrong.

Old Knudsen -- Look, I know string intstruments hadn't been invented yet when you were born, but you're just going to have to adjust.

Savannah -- "great reads, sugar! where the hell were all ya'll when i lived in socal??? hope you're feeling better!"

Thanks, it looks like I'll live, unfortunately. And I've been here in So Cal for 37 years, which is far too long....

Troika -- "Why did you have to write so much to explain why he's so fucking shite?

"

Good point.

"He's not the fucking Arctic Monkeys, is he?"

Now, are they on a Nickelodeon show, or a Disney channel show?

No, I don't get out much.

GG -- "I am ashamed to say I had a huge crush on Springsteen as a lass and went out with a bloke just because he looked like Bruce."

Good God, you mean there's two of those mingers out there?!

And how the fuck are you, anyway? Busy, I'm assuming.

Sam -- "Sorry I wasn't around here the other day when you posted to wish you well then."

It's all good, I'm posting rather erratically lately. I thought I was doing better, but I guess a few things weren't drug side effects after all. I did the fasting, 3-hour glucose tolerance test yesterday, as they're now suspecting I have diabetes on top of everything else, for fuck's sake.

Spouse Sparrow -- I'm not even going to remark on that, as I know which side my bed is buttered on.

Eddie -- "Where I'm from mate it's okay to be both, at the same time an' all."

Oh, baby!

Sassy -- "He really does look constipated most of the time, doesn't he?"

Yes, and I'll bet he needs glasses, besides.

"I hate that Dancing in the Dark video. Courtney Cox should have kicked him."

If only that would have been in the script....

Kav -- "But The River! The River! Suicide-inducing beauty at its finest."

I don't understand.... All of Bruce's songs make me want to kill myself.

First Nations said...

how we laughed when he first appeared on the scene. wasn't even cool when he was supposed to be cool. on top of it all he has a voice like an asthmatic farting through a horsehair pillow.
the man makes my teeth itch. he wants so desparately to be the aryan Bob Dylan...

matt lobster said...

IS Bryan Adams a different person?

FN -- "he has a voice like an asthmatic farting through a horsehair pillow"

FN, have I told you lately how brilliant you are? I know, I know, you have lots of worshippers, just allow me to sit by your side and soak it all up.

Matt -- "Is Bryan Adams a different person?"

(with apologies to FN) He's the Aryan version of Bruce Springsteen.
