My fond Review of John's first Genesee concert.
Formerly published by BBC, United Kingdom, 02 February 2008.
1. Love, death, perdition, supernatural & redemption
2. Juxtaposition & Fanfare for the common man
3. Watch, "The Conners". "Comfortably Numb".
4. "Room smelled like death, when he took his last breath."
5. More neoplasm of neologisms, than plethora of pleonasms.
6. Folk + pre-steroids country & western. [Americana!]
7. Pugilism days - allusion to an allusion - Paul Thorn
Existentialist thought by Jean Paul Sartre. --- Nobel Prize winner, literature.
I. What do I care about JUPITER? Justice is a human issue, and I do not need a god to teach it to me.
II. We do not judge the people we LOVE.
III. I hate victims who RESPECT their executioners.
IV. It disturbs me no more to find MEN base, UNJUST, or selfish than to see apes mischievous, wolves savage, or the vulture ravenous.
V. When the rich wage WAR, it's the poor who die.
VI. FREEDOM is what you do with what's been done to you.
VII. Everything has been figured out, except HOW to LIVE.
"John Prine is an Existentialist." --- Bob Dylan, Nobel Prize winner, literature.
