springsteen and arafat, together at last!


I told you he always looks like he's constipated.

Is it improper etiquette to quote myself?

"...a singer who looks like he is eternally constipated and sings like the shit is on its way out the hole."

It's times like these that I wish I had a Fark membership.

Four Family Guy episodes and one Sleeping Beauty later, and my own sleeping beauty is snoring away on the couch.

Which means it's the perfect time to watch Princess Diaries!

Or do I stay here and talk about Arafat?

Here's what I don't understand: Why is it ok for Bush to call for the heads of Saddam and Ol' Dirty Laden, want to take them out dead or alive, yet it's wrong when Israel finally has the balls to say let's kill Arafat? Where is the difference? Why can the U.S. protect itself against tyrant leaders and terrorists by killing them and the administration acts all horrified and aghast when Israel wants to do the same?

Arafat is a murderer, a terrorist and a tyrant. No different than the leaders of al Qaeda, no different than Saddam and his his two evil sons.

Kill the bastard. Let allah sort him out.

so you see, this is what I meant by Springsteen and Arafat together at last. I hope I did not lead anyone to have false hopes that the guy with the tablecloth on his head and food caught between the spikes of ten day old stubble on his face was going to get on stage with the Constipated One. Though that might make an interesting show, I imagine the security would be hell. I could probably find some humurous way to compare Arafat to Springsteen, maybe even make one of those fancy charts or a Venn diagram, but that means I would be spending too much time thinking about two people I can't stand [though in entirely different ways - I mean, I hate Bruce but it's not like I want to shove explosives up his ass, too] and that's pretty much why I stuck these two very disparate thoughts in one post because it's like killing two birds with one stone. Two really ugly, annoying birds.]


Still having trouble telling Springsteen and your ex-husband apart, huh?

I love your blog but lay off the Boss please. He's really a nice guy.

Thank God! Finally, somebody besides me who doesn't think Springsteen is "the boss". I can't decide if he looks constipated or if he is trying to pass a stone though.

He always looks like he having a dump. And lets face it, since he became all "caring & sharing" his music has been pants. He like John Cougar Mellencamp dumped their rockier style and crawled up their backsides to produce purile rubbish.

Such horrible calumnies cast at Bruce Springsteen, poet of Monmouth County, N.J.

Who has Nassau County ever produced? Huh?

Me. Duh.

You simply don't understand, Michele. Yasser Arafat was the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED leader of the Palestinian people, in spite of the fact that his only opponent was some old woman that nobody ever heard of, and that all of his real opponents were murdered or threatened into not running.

Jimmy Carter and his organization certified the election. Don't you get it? They SAY it's true, therefore it is.

You simplistic American Zionist tool.

That's ZIONAZI, ma'm.

Who has Nassau County ever produced? Huh?

This is who.

Oh, thank heavens I'm not alone in my disdain for "The Boss." The VH1 documentary about Warren Zevon would've been a lot better without Springsteen. He was in the studio contributing to Zevon's final album, and people were acting like he turned water into wine when he played his guitar and looked like he was waiting for the Ex-Lax to work its magic. He wasn't doing anything special there, folks, I wanted to say.

It was decent of him to help out his ailing friend, I realize. And I still admire Zevon's work.
