My Springsteen Dreamlist

Posted by on 27/05/2012 | No comments

Here is the list of Springsteen songs i hope he’s playing @ the Pinkpop festival on monday may 28th.  I know there’s a big chance he’s gonna play at least two of them (from setlists from the recent Spanish and German concerts. The first song on the list (Factory) i’ve heard them performing live in 1999 in Arnhem. I was totally surprised then to hear that song.

The first time i heard that song (and i didn’t know then it was a Springsteen song) was somewhere in the last years from the 80’s by the a-capella band The Flying Pickets. That version then already had a huge impact on me. Years later when i found out it was a Bruce-written song (from Darkness) it didn’t surprise me at all he wrote it, cause it’s a typical Bruce song.

That concert in Arnhem was for my wife the first “Boss” concert ever.  She came with me because she knew how much i liked it. But after she heard them performing “Working on the Highway” she was fan too. And most of all she was fan from The Big Man Clarence Clemons. So that’s some reasons i hope he’s playing that song. And from his last album i really love “Jack of all trades”.

The HTC ONE X

Posted by on 26/05/2012 | No comments

After two years of doing a very good job, i changed my HTC Desire for a (brand new) HTC ONE X. Last weekend i went to Groningen with my daughter Rosalie, she should help me picking a new phone. The main reason i wanted a new phone was the battery. Plugging into a socket every 6 hours drove me slightly mad. The other reason was the warning “out of memory”.

I’m working with a few basic apps (FourSquare, Tweetdeck, Path, Google Talk, Google+, Hipster, Spotify and a few more) but i’m always looking for new ones to make life easier. But the internal memory didn’t allow me to try out those apps for a long time.

So we went (for a lunch @ McD offcourse) and saw the Samsung Note Galaxy and the HTC ONE X. To make a long story  short, my daughter’s favorite  was the Samsung, i preferred the HTC.  And (unfortunately for my daughter) i picked the HTC.

And after one week of working (well actually playing) with it, i don’t regret. My hand is just big enough to hold him, and he’s very very fast. Lots of internal memory and the looks are gorgeous. And this weekend i’m taking him for “his first big job”. When we’re going to the Pinkpop festival (only the last day) i’m keeping you up to date in many ways. Not just on this site, but also on Twitter, FB and other ways.

But i’m gonna bring the Desire too. Battery duration is still bad. And i wanna be sure i can make video’s and pics from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street band. Even when i’m dancing in the dark on those Glory Days.

London Calling; Live in Hyde Park.

Posted by on 09/07/2010 | No comments

Instead of being bored with all the “Oranje” stuff on the radio i’ve been listening to Bruce Springsteen all day. This week i bought the DVD “London Calling; Live in Hyde Park”. A fantastic DVD from a great performance from the Working on a dream tour last year. The Boss and the E Street Band are having so much energy, it bursts right out of your TV.

I bought the DVD for my brother in Canada, and this week i bought it for myself. It’s a present that makes you happy.
