In which I make it very clear where my priorities lie.

25 Aug

So two awesome things happened today in history. First of all, in 1944, Paris was liberated by the Allies. The New York Times has reproduced their article on the event here, which is neat. Plus the French Resistance was just fucking badass (watch this blog for my fangirling of Rose Valland).

Second of all, in 1975, one of the greatest albums of all time was released. I refer, of course, to Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run.

Fuck you, my capstone paper involved Springsteen, he totally qualifies as an historically significant figure.
