Gah! You get to see him on my birthday! Take me with you!!



I will of course be watching the special tonight.

That special was so cool and so much fun. It didn't even come close to capturing what a Springsteen concert is all about, though. And, the volume was way too low. Still, our Bruce on TV!!!!!!

:swoon:

i watched it with the sound turned WAY up and it was really cool and my mom taped it for me too

and then on my radio show i played "glory days" (i meant to play "dancing in the dark" but i messed up)--i played a vinly record without messing up! i played van dieman's land the first time i was on the air and you know how it fades into the part where the band's talking (or actually, isn't talking)? i cut that off and aired a big disasterous scratchy sound...but this time it worked! only i cued up the WRONG track...


my mom has become a springsteen fan now. she called me up saying that she's thinking of going to media play tomorrow cos she has this $2 dollars off on a cd coupon, and getting a bruuuuuuuuuce album!

I was at the bar last night and as my friend and I walked in they were playing Glory Days on the jukebox. That's one of my favorite Bruce songs.

Your entire post sounded quite a bit like the actual lyrics to Glory Days...

Ironic, don't you think? Maybe a little too ironic, yes I really do think...

By any chance..could I get a copy of that? I was moving into my new apartment last night and we don't have reception yet, so I couldn't watch it!

Did anyone else tape it?

I taped it, but I don't have a way to copy it. If I did, I would send you a copy of the whole tape, because it's chock full o' Bruce!


I'm not very helpful, am I?

The special was great! I just wish it had been two hours long instead of just one. At least they had limited commercial interuptions.

Haha, you're right! Funny thing is, we met in high school so we have lots of memories we go back to every now and again, so...


I have yet to watch the special. Too busy today.

glad ultraviolet light is here cos i unfortunatly don't have the equipment to make copies of tapes for people

my brother was really angry cos he didn't get to watch The Iron Giant which was on at the same time, and while my mom was argueing with him, they missed taping the first half of "the rising"


but today my mom went to the store and bought the album (the rising) cos all of a sudden she tells me that she's always liked sprinsteen even though she doesn't have any albums...i think she just doesn't like to admit to becoming a fan of some band after just watching a 1 hour tv special.

Yes, it most definately is. Bruce just has that "something" that causes his live shows to be great. Much like U2. Video does not do it justice, it must be experienced to fully understand and appreciate it.

If you dont have The Rising go out and get it. Excellent album, I lost a little interest in Bruce in the early 90's but I think The Rising is up there with some of his best work and it really renewed my interest in him again.
