Green Room - Week 18 - Day 2

Good news: Bruce Springsteen has announced that he *will not* be cancelling any future LJ Idol appearances!

Nor will Bryan Adams or any other musician famous in the 80s.

There was some concern that it might happen, following the NC boycotts, because LJ Idol does not allow for transgender folks to use restrooms *at all*. It turns out that Idol doesn't allow *anyone* into our private restrooms, instead pointing people to a shovel and a trench that we have outside in the back.

We do not discriminate - we hate *all* dirty hippie foreigners!!

So we're fine and we will have exactly the same amount of Springsteen Idol appearances as were originally on the schedule for this calendar year!!!

What, you have indoor plumbing? It looks like I missed another advance in technology.

*I* have indoor plumbing. The rest of Idol does not.

But is this....just a skit....you're participating in? Or do you write your own material?

I do not speak hippie. ;)

What are you asking?

I give people a deadline, and they write the skits for me!

Well, crap! AW

I've always had a complicated relationship with Springsteen. I admire him like crazy but don't especially enjoy his music. But he's one of the most consistently decent people in rock. Indeed, in Flowers in the Dustbin, writer James Miller makes a case for Springsteen being the last great rock and roll star (and he's not even that crazy about him).

Anyhow, I am glad he's taken a stand on HB2 and, at the same time, am unlikely to be picking up Born to Run anytime soon. I am a bad music fan.

I have always liked Springsteen the person, but to be perfectly honest, I tend to prefer covers of his work. :x

I'm glad we've been able to find a space where we can be comfortable admitting this. I've always been ashamed of my rather mild enthusiasm for Springsteen's work.

My partner loves him, so...yeah.

(For me, I'll stick with the Bat For Lashes cover of "I'm on Fire".)
