Radicalized New Yorkers. Sheer Terror. Born in Queens, New York, USA. Sheer Terror.
“Born down in a dead man’s town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
End up like a dog that’s been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.
Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand……”
-From Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen
God Bless America. And so it is. Amen.
I had better things to do this year than watch The Grammys – like – I counted sheep before I went to bed and thought about painting the wall. Today, all over the web, there’s stuff about Kanye West whining – yet again – about his disappointment with certain Grammy award recipients. (Zzzzzzzz…..Zzzzzzzzzzz…..Zzzzzzzzzzzz). Oh. There was also internet noise of Madonna supposedly strutting around with large groups of young, buff men with costumed horns lifting her in the air – with her fishnet tights and boosted cleavage as per usual – performing too. (Zzzzzzzzz…..zzzzzzzzz…….zzzzzzzzz). Like I said, I had better things to do than watch The Grammys this year. And so it is. Amen.
