    Doing some Recon Thurs/Fri Night

    wife and i are seeing the Bruce Springsteen shows in LA so i will be able to see the Union/Socialist/Marxist/leftist/crowd up close and hopefully come out of there with my ideology still intact.

    We Take Care Of Our Own is clearly a pro-Union anthem, and it wouldn't surprise me to hear it at the Democratic convention, but until that happens, it's a great song in my book.

    Chi,

    I agree I really like the new album, and I know it is leftist propaganda but I grew up liking his music and just put up with some of his nonsense, Jack of All Trades is another great track from the album. These shows will put me in the 80 or so range of shows of his I have seen since 198.0

    I'm guessing the implication that you might actually dislike it if it IS played at the convention was somewhat tongue in cheek, so this isn't directed at you. It's directed at anyone who actually would get their panties in a twist over something like this:

    There are too few great writers, artists, musicians, and even comics to not enjoy the work of those with whom you disagree about politics.

    Yeah, that's as bad as the artists who try and restrict/regulate the inspiration of their works to others. Artists trying to restrict that inspiration because they disagree with someone's politics is pretty lame, too, IMO.

    Not sure what you are talking about. How an someone "regulate inspiration"?

    Like artists who ask certain groups or people not to play their music on grounds of political difference.

    In doing so, they directly link themselves and their music to a specific political view. And, if that's they case, why would it be so absurd if someone stopped listening to a certain song or musician on that same basis?

    I get what you're saying and don't necessarily disagree. It just seems like there's a guilt-by-association culture in politics right now where if you're caught within a mile of somebody for any reason, all of a sudden you get saddled with their burdens even when it isn't appropriate. Things would be a lot less weird all the way around if everyone could get past that.

    I'd have had to cancel 2/3 of my itinerary in California back in February if I let what musicians think about politics bother me. I didn't, and had a good time. Pretty easy to figure out!

    This will be somewhere around show number 75 or so for me since 1977. I would never let the politics come between me and a Springsteen show, I would prefer not to be belittled by the artist however I have thick enough skin to deal with that kind of talk.

    I agree. Just seems that some artists contribute to the political polarization instead of helping people find common ground...which music should do.

    I would think a true artist would find the beauty...or even some pretty cool irony...in watching people who disagree with you on issues enjoying your music. If an artist is simply trying to make poitical messages with great artistic appeal, then more power to 'em. But, there shouldn't be an issue, then, when someone chooses not to listen to 'em for political reasons.

    I don't do this, but understand why people might take the position.

    Yeah it was pretty much tongue in cheek, although I got sick of hearing Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow during the Clinton campaign, but it wasn't that great of a song to begin with.

    I wont be there


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    I was wondering if you were going to say anything. I was going to post "the puffs of Devil weed are where you'll find Pops!" but I didn't. But I just did now because you did. See what you did that made me do what I did...?

    Good for you mixing with the working class like that, Lakewood! And this Springsteen fellow is apparently one of their heroes! Do tell us how it turns out.
