Rumours


Rumours. As an album, it's one of the best ones of all time. In my humble opinion. And given my age. And the fact that I use the term "album." And that I played it endlessly in high school and college. And that it is pretty much the only non-Springsteen album on my mp3 player.

Rumors. As a way of communicating, it's ridiculous. And when someone with authority -- perceived or bestowed or self-assigned -- passes rumors, it just feeds the frenzy. Rumor has it that the rumor-spreading has made its way up and down the chain, with proper attribution to the rumor-starter. Can I just relish that? Just a little?

Yes, go ahead and relish. It's human.
I don't even have an Ipod or any kind of MP3 player but I have told the family I want one for Mother's Day and that I want it ready with songs already on it. I told them I'd give them cds with notes on each about what songs I want loaded. Thanks for the reminder that this album will give me a lot of great memories.
And the young folks still use the term album--the producers of music do. Such as on Amer Idol, "So, David, you have a new album coming out, right?"

I also love this album, and is in fact sitting in my very limited collection, along with Billy Joel, Elton John, Queen, Pink Floyd, and of course, springsteen, springsteen and more springsteen.
Relish away!

See now, I call them records. And most of the records on my iPod are also Springsteen...

I Could Use Less Excitement, Too

"So glad you were all able to be here. A little less excitement next time. Love all of you." I received that text from my Mom as...
