  1. I have to agree with most of your assessments of this list of things, so I won’t mention too many tonight. The cars with bows as Christmas presents are sooo less than zero, I wouldn’t know how to depict it in a numeric form.

    Bruce Sprigsteen’s ‘Santa Claus…” has to get a 3 or a 3.5, simply by default. It’s not a current-style (how the hell can I even remotely put this nicely??!) shall we say “gospel style” where all the vowels are elooooogaaaated and exager-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-ted, and is the ONLY accepted musical style now, the last 20+ years, and looks to stay this way permanently. 2090? 2118? Mmmmm hmmmm.
