Bruce Springsteen as Keynote Speaker at SXSW 2012

This is without doubt, one of the most perfect things I've ever watched. I mentioned in a recent blog post that I wasn't exactly a fan of Bruce Springsteen. But I am finally, quickly becoming one.

I don't know how much time Bruce had to prepare this speech. But these are some of the very same things that I think about very frequently. And as he says at one point here (I'm paraphrasing...) "We all thought these things...but we had no language for it." I think a lot of this same stuff very frequently. But I'm not able to articulate it. If I had no other distractions, responsibilities, or things on my schedule, I MIGHT be able to come to some of these explanations with A LOT of work, getting them out of my heart and skull. But Bruce does it perfectly and makes it look so, so easy.

And cool.

Guess that's why he's the Boss.

Thanks for articulating it for us, Mr. Springsteen.
