But first, remember the 80s. Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” video shot at Maxwell’s in May 1985.

I am FIRED for not reblogging this sooner.

Yeah yeah. I for one support a Constitutional amendment that would ban politicians of ANY party from appropriating this song EVER for ANY REASON.

One night in Newark with Chris Christie and Bruce Springsteen.

“No one is beyond the reach of Bruce!” he screams over the noise of the crowd, and then screams it again, to make sure I understand: “No one is beyond the reach of Bruce!”

File under: things that are true

The Boss’s return to the mythic isn’t a process of losing touch. In fact, it could be proof that he has actually maintained an uncanny sense of communication with the people and the times. In the context of 2012, myths might truly be the most immediately legible mode of conveying his messages. It’s the image-saturated digital era, the era where we more than ever conceive of and communicate about our world in fictions, in fantasies. And at the same time, it’s a year where, as the middle class continues to be threatened, people like to talk about the American Dream, long the central topic of both romantic and realist Springsteen, is most endangered. It’s an era in need of some myths. Tellingly, people sit down during the straightforward, direct “Jack of All Trades,” but stomp along to the fury of “Death to My Hometown.”

Some really excellent Bruce-ism by Ryan Leas, at GQ.

Today in celebration of Patrick Harbron’s upcoming Rock n’Roll photography exhibition opening May 10 at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, we are going to go with this photo of The Boss from 1984. It was GLORY DAYS for Bruce in ‘84 as he had just released his iconic album BORN IN THE USA, was dancing on stage with Courtney Cox and was basically the biggest rock star on the planet (though Michael Jackson may argue with that). Glory days indeed.

Hey look, I was on this internet talk show to discuss the new Bruce record. Nerd-enthusiasm levels off the charts.

Warning: We also talk about feelings.
