Not a Bad Idea

Just got off from Bruce Springsteen & The Seeger Sessions Band We Shall Overcome Concert. It was great to see craftsmanship in practice; almost in the sense Richard Sennett defines it in his The Culture of the New Capitalism: "doing something well for its own sake." From www.backstreets.com's discussions, a website dedicated to the Boss, I found "A JrsyGrl 04" comment which has nothing to do with tonight's music:

You should die first, start out dead and get it out of the way.
Then you wake up in a nursing home, feeling better every day.
You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension.
When you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work 40 years
until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.
You drink alcohol, you party, you're generally promiscuous and you get ready
for High School.
You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, you have no
responsibilities, you become a baby.
Then, you spend your last 9 months floating
peacefully with luxuries like central heating, spa room service on tap, larger
quarter's everyday.
And finally you finish off as an orgasm.

When you feel like it, go to www.brucespringsteen.net/site.html, there's some music.
