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, letąs face it, the man rocks.

The Discovery Channel has canceled American Chopper after 10 years, Entertainment Weekly reports.



"After 10 years and 233 episodes of incredible, riveting reality television, American Chopper will be ending its run," Eileen O'Neill, president of Discovery and TLC Networks, said. "This series was one of the very first family-based reality programs on television ... The Teutuls have given us really innovative bike builds and real drama since 2002. We wish both Orange County Choppers and Paul Junior Designs the best."



What's renewed and what's canceled?



The series, about a father and son building custom motorcycles, debuted as a special in 2002 before becoming a regular series. In 2008, the show moved to TLC but was canceled a few years later due to a family feud. Discovery then began airing the program again after the dispute was settled.



"This was the first family docu-soap," executive producer Craig Piligian told EW. "They put on display, for all to see, what really happens in a tight family business, warts and all. I'm really proud they were so open and honest."
