Does Joe Walsh Live a Life of “Allusion” or “Illusion”?


If you have his album “There Goes The Neighborhood” or remember the video (it takes place in a dump) or remembers the opening scene of “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” you know the answer.

For everyone else, the definition holds the answer.

Allusion means an indirect reference. An illusion is an unreal or false impression.

By the way, that dump, in West Los Angeles, was filled in the mid-1980s. On top of it is a wealthy area of homes called Mountaingate. I wonder how many people who live there know they’re sitting on a landfill?

A life of illusion, indeed.

Until next time! Use the right words!
