The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Why do people really watch reality TV?



In a new survey conducted by Today.com, it turns out that a majority of the respondents -72 percent of women and 60 percent of men - watch simply because they're bored.



Guess that TV mustache!



The study, which surveyed nearly 19,000 people, also found that those who watched non-competition reality shows are more extroverted, neurotic and have lower self-esteem than watchers who are not fans of the genre. Additionally, 46 percent of the women and 26 percent of the men watch this programming because they like seeing how people with money, fame and status live their lives.



What shows are you breaking up with?



And what was the favorite reality show among men? Deadliest Catch and the Real Housewives franchise.



Are you surprised by the findings?
