So, I wanted to mention that I watched The Promise, the new Darkness documentary, when it premiered on HBO last week. Pretty fuckin awesome stuff. Intimate studio footage, lots of great moments. Watching it, and getting little glimpses and insights into the songwriting process of such a great artist, is really inspiring.

I watched it with a few of my buddies, all of us play decent guitar and make half-assed attempts at writing songs from time to time, and during and after the movie we kept saying "I really want to write some songs now."

I should have taken notes, but there was a bunch of stuff that I thought was just great. The description of Bruce crafting each song as a sort of "picture" or "image" or creating the album in an almost film-like fashion. And it was accompanied by some cool photographs of the massive landscape of the American west.

Anyway, I thought I'd bump this and see if anybody else saw it and what they thought of it?

Or, we could just talk about anything Bruce. Because that's always fun.

I just watched that last night! I liked it, although not as much as the Born To Run doc (maybe because I like that album more).

I'm waffling on getting the complete box set that's coming out. I don't know that I want the discs of outtakes and stuff, but I do want the concert DVDs. So I guess I'll be shelling out the big bucks for it.

For some reason, even though BTR is probably my favorite album ever by anybody, I've never seen that documentary for it. Is it pretty similar to the Darkness one, with all the studio footage? I need to track that down online or something, or maybe just buy the damned thing.

I just remembered a moment from the Darkness doc that I really loved. He's talking about this moment he had with his dad, meeting him at work and his dad couldn't hear him because of the sound of the machinery. And then they played the verse from "Factory" that references that. I never knew that song was so personal.

Yeah, the concert DVDs is what I really want from the box set. I can always illegally download the outtakes.

It's been a while since I watched the BTR documentary, but I believe it was similar, with interviews and studio footage, that sort of thing.

I should watch it again soon.

I passed on watching it so it'd be new when I eventually get the box.

Now I'm sad .

I don't have HBO either, so I haven't seen it yet. Although I know they included some concert footage in it, and the '78 Houston show that is complete with the box is shown. Prove It All Night and The Promised Land are from it.

I don't post much but I'm just so excited! My cousin has an extra ticket for me she got in a presale for Joe Grushecky and Bruce at Soldiers & Sailors Hall in Pittsburgh. They are playing 2 dates, Nov. 4th & 5th. The place only holds a bit over 2000 people. The general sale is today on Ticketmaster at 10am if anyone is on here right now. Would have posted sooner but I just found this out.

I'm a little surprised that doc hasn't shown up on torrents, unless I'm not searching for it correctly.

Wish they were playing around here - I'd love to see Bruce in such a small venue. Have fun!

It has been up on Megavideo for a while now. Of course you have to do the whole, watch an hour and then wait an hour and come back and finish it unless you have a subscription, but it is better than nothing.

MEGAVIDEO - I'm watching it

Edit: Weird how that link posted, but I swear it is legit. Just click on the red "play" button. A pop up might appear, but then click on the green "play" arrow and it should work fine.
