I am loving this album. I love melancholic melodic Bruce which I’ve missed a bit the last few years.
The Boss is coming to a theater near you. Definitely gonna scoop tickets for the TIFF premiere.
I've had an incredibly tough few weeks. There's a lot going on with my family at the moment that's sort of been pulling me in a few directions and caused me to be going back and forth between 'home' and where I live now. It's forcing me to evaluate what I'm going to be doing with myself in the next few months / with my future, which isn't something I expected to be happening right now. It's been exhausting both emotionally and physically. Two days ago I had to leave for a work trip, which came as a super welcome reprieve. I'm staying in a city where I don't know anyone, which has been really nice. Basically, I've been laying in bed binging RHONY and ordering way too much food when I'm not working.
Last night I went for dinner on my own, had a few drinks, and as I was walking home passed a theater around the block from my Airbnb that was playing Blinded By The Light. I grabbed a ticket, walked around a bit until the movie started, got stoned and sat in an empty theater (literally not another person there), and... holy shit did I cry a lot. The movie packed such an unbelievable punch. Honestly, it's mostly quite cheesy (in a cute way), but it's also incredibly endearing and really sweet. Nothing hits me quite like Bruce does, and the way they use his music here to tell a story about feeling trapped, chasing dreams, understanding connections to family, and recognizing sacrifices made by your parents, just really fucked me up. In a great way. I literally would have watched it again directly after if I could. Sitting there alone as Bruce's music blasted repeatedly through the theater was so comforting. I woke up today feeling a little bit better, with a slightly clearer head. It's wild how something so small can put so much into perspective.
I seriously feel like Bruce has always been there exactly when I needed him.
Also, the guy who plays the best friend Roops could like... get it. Especially with his Springsteen shirt, jacket, and bandana on.
