I don't know if I missed a song reference or something, but, please, don't knock american diners. They are possibly the best thing we have. I came to this realization after reading "Get in The Van; On the Road With Black Flag" by Henry Rollins. As everything including bandmates, concert halls, american towns, pretty girls, Europe, flies, French Canada, fans, people talking to him and punk clothes seems to throw Henry deeper and deeper into the dark abyss of depression, the only thing that seems to keep him from the impending suicide are the all night american diners (and 7-11). It's like, he couldn't stand to look people in the eye due to insecurity and rage, but was always up for a meal at Denny's. I've never looked at a diner the same after reading this published diary. It changed my life, really.

Oh, I wasn't having a pop at the diner. The mac and cheese in Perkins is one of the closest things to heaven you can find.

Mind you, Gunther Toodys is pretty grim.

(Just for the record, it was a line from James Brown's Living In America.)
