Rock ‘n’ Roll Survival Kit

“DNA, natural ability, study of craft, development of and devotion to an aesthetic philosophy, naked desire for…fame? oh, yeah…a buck. Then…if you want to take it all the way out to the end of the night, a furious fire in the hole that just…don’t…quit…burning.
These are some of the elements that will come in handy should you come face-to-face with eighty thousand (or eighty) screaming rock ‘n’ roll fans who are waiting for you to do your magic trick. Waiting for you to pull something out of your hat, out of thin air, out of this world, something that before the faithful were gathered here today was just a song-fueled rumor.
I am here to provide proof of life to that ever elusive, never completely believable “us”. That is my magic trick.”
From Born To Run – Bruce Springsteen
It occurs to us that we have seen a swimmer of this magnitude, who reportedly is done standing on the blocks in front of thousands doing his magic trick. Hopefully he will find another equally significant way to make our sport other-worldly. He certainly has that capacity. It would be a shame to lose him to the real world…speaking selfishly here.

Because this is what will happen after the next SHTF event.
