Davey Brooks in Wonderland, or Fanboy follows Springsteen around Europe

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/26/opinion/brooks-the-power-of-the-particular….

 

I can see Davey all dressed up for any of the Springsteen concerts: bandana wrapped around his head, Wayfarers on,Springsteen tee shirt, cargo shorts and flip flops and holding a mighty forty ouncer. Am I hallucinating? Yeh, cause fanboy just harshed my mellow by talking some shit about The Power of the Particular, and w.t.f. “paracosms”. Fanboy just can’t chill and party and then go home and crash, no! He gotta get all up into it, and tell us about it: what is this some excuse for a tax write-off? Was it fun? Were you with it, or just some lame ass spectator, who just can’t stop his moralistic poser self?

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
