Bruce Springsteen in the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund video.

“We need to pull together and start the healing at home,” says Bruce Springsteen in a new video for the newly created New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund, which you can watch below.

Others in the video include New Jerseyans Jon Bon Jovi, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Whoopi Goldberg, Danny DeVito, Carli Lloyd, Charlie Puth and the state’s First Lady, Tammy Murphy.

The video was posted on the fund’s new Facebook page with a message that said:

“The onset of the coronavirus pandemic has dramatically upended our lives in ways that were unimaginable just weeks ago.

“The New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund was created to marshal resources across the state to identify critical needs and fight the economic and social impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey’s vulnerable communities.

“One hundred percent of donations received online by NJPRF will be used to fight the medical, social, and economic impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey’s most vulnerable, supporting organizations that provide essential services and aiding those on the front lines of the pandemic.

“For more information about this important effort, and to donate, please visit www.njprf.org — New Jersey, it’s time to #BandTogetherNJ!”

Alert , local musicians and entertainers have lost their source of income. I’m fortunate because my wife career is supporting our family during this pandemic crisis. But many of my fellow bar musicians are lost , with no way to earn a living. Let’s all band together and help our local bar band musicians. Our brothers and sisters who entertain us weekly while we have a burger and a beer with friends need us now.
Right now they are without anyway to pay bills, buy food. There is no unemployment money for us. And most of us have no savings to draw from.
Don’t forget about them. Someone out there with the organizational no how please step up, band together and help out these local musicians

This is wonderful and thank you all so much. Love to see our Jersey stars coming together to help lift others up in times like these. Please don’t forget about the non-profits that are also on the front line feeding people and helping with non-food emergencies also. We’re all in this together! God Bless you all!

Hello from Spain!

Thank you for taking care. Stay at home. We are going throught hard times..

We may think that we are many millions of people in the world and it will not touch us .. but I have an uncle in the ICU since Sunday night .. Sedated and intubated .. Sometimes, he plays closer than we can think ..

What we would like to think about .. Please stay home .. This is very contagious when there are no symptoms yet and that is very dangerous ..

Wash your hands often.. Use your “bad” hand to open doors and touch things .. The “good” hand will be the one you will instinctively use to touch your face..

Attentive to lesser-known symptoms .. Nausea, diarrhea, loss of smell and taste ..

Thinking of yourself, but especially of the others, take all precautions Possible ..

If the health system collapses, soon they will have to choose to save a person or the other, as it is happening in Italy and Spain ..

Maybe someone has an accident or needs an urgent operation and there are no resources to attend to it, because they are overloaded. I know some organ donations have not been done, because there are no sterilized rooms available to carry them out and these are more lives being lost, collateral damages … Anyway, I could tell you more … but I think you may have an idea already …

My best wishes from Spain .. Bruce !! Take care!! We need you back in Spain !!

To the tune of Thunder Road –

I call it HedgeFund Road (Ode to Warren Buffett)

HedgeFund Road
The Coronavirus slams
Donalds hair sways
On a mission he complains about the fake news – as the ticker tape plays

Andrew Ross Sorkin singing for the Lonely
Hey it’s the small business hurting only
Don’t leave them out again
They just can’t face this crisis alone again

Don’t you run back inside –
Mnuchin you know just what I’m here for
So your scared and you’re thinking
that maybe the dems wont shell no dough anymore

Show a little faith there’s magic in the night
It ain’t perfect, but the bailout’s alright
Oh and that’s alright with me

You can hide neath your covers
And study Boeing’s pain
Watch Jim Cramer and others
Say the market – its just so lame
Waste this quarantine praying in vain
For a savior to rise from Wall Street

Well now Fauci’s a hero that’s understood
But all the redemption he can offer
Is straight talk just as he should
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can Powell do now
Except roll down the window
And let the liquidity blow back your hair
Well the Dow’s busting open –
These fed guys will take us anywhere

We got one one last chance to save this deal
To trade in our politics on some wheels
So climb in back
Prosperity waiting down on the tracks

Oh-oh come take Gupta’s hand
We’re riding out tonight to save the promised land
Oh-oh-oh-oh HedgeFund Road, oh HedgeFund Road,
Oh HedgeFund Road

Lying out there like Virus in the sun
Hey I know its late we can make it if we run
Oh-oh-oh-oh HedgeFund Road, sit tight, Take Hold
HedgeFund Road

Well I got this iPhone
And I learned how to make it Squawk
And my Broker’s out back
If your ready take that long walk

From your home office to my front seat
The door’s open but the ride ain’t free
And I know this virus, – we’re flattening the curve
Soon it’ll be waiters again, and no more self serve

There were ghosts in the eyes of all the bankers you sent away
They haunt your Hamptons home in the skeleton frames
gone the Bear and Lehman way

They scream they’re going broke each day on Wall Street
Your Harvard mba gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear the traders roaring on
When you get to the social distanced porch they’re gone
On the wind

So Buffett climb in – Doot Doot doot doot do
It’s a Capitol full of losers and were pull’n out of here to win!

“Drum part” – BOOM! boom boom boom boom boom..BOOM! boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom..BOOM! boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boooooom boooooooooom BOOM!

Okay you get the point!

Thank you Bruce for all your contributions to our community. Right now your hometown of Freehold NJ community hospital Centra State is hit hard and we need help providing PPE and supplies to our healthcare workers. It is a month now and we are tired, worn and doing our best, your uplifting music gets us through our 12 hour shifts. If there is anyway you can help your old hometown it would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely a Nurse on the Front Line xo
