Judy's Not So Sure!

Hey, if Jon keeps it up, ya never know!!!!

jerzey. i never looked back after 1984. and i have to admit, i still have a soft spot for Bruce. i'll even go as far as saying that it wasn't that long ago that maybe i got a little nostalgic when i heard the opening chords to thunder road. ok, i'll just come right out and say it: Sometimes any song from the Born To Run album can give me chills. And that's coming from someone who goes out of his way to steer clear of classic rock. My problem with Jersey wasn't the state itself, but the mostly constipated conservative people that make up the suburbs from which i hail.
Bruce, Anthony, Patti Smith, Judy McGuire...
the list goes on.

Four more days to Halloween--Silver Shamrock!

I've noticed the Brooklyn flipside to fab Tony B.'s New Jersey comment: everybody wants to claim the City of Churches as their own--which is nice, I guess, but somewhat disconcerting when dealing with someone who didn't leave Des Moines until they were 22 wearing a "Defend Brooklyn" T-shirt.

i loathe those g.d. "defend brooklyn" t-shirts. must have been 2000, maybe 1999, when those idiots started selling them on bedford ave. i'm not a big fan of guns, much less submachine guns featured on t-shirts, and then there was the gentrification subtext. defend brooklyn from whom? the immigrants? the polish people? i asked one of the vendors what the hell the shirts were supposed to mean, and she giggled a 14-year-old's annoying giggle and said, "it's like, y'know, explosive!" teeheeeheeeeeee!

and judy, that's for darn skippy!

Damn straight. Jersey has redeemed itself in my eyes. (And I say that as a former Fort Le resident who had to suffer through eight months of the worst driving I've ever seen.)

Great blog. Most definitely going in the feed reader.

Oh, and FWIW - I found you because we both show up in this search:

Small world, huh?

i'm with ya, mcguire. whenever my fellow seattleites say, "you're from new york, aren't you?" i proudly correct them: "no, jersey." i miss jersey culture baaaaaaad. so in honor of the gay marriage ruling, i think i'll wear hot pink leggings, tease my hair, and blast bon jovi from the mall parking lot tomorrow. [footnote: when i lived in CA and revealed i was from the garden state, people invariably would say, 'oh, joisey?' happily seattleites are far too passive/afraid of offending to go there.]

Jersey isn't all bad, and doesn't totally deserve the bad rap that it often gets.
