Each of us on the planet interpret each experience we have in our own unique way.
The retelling of each experience is also unique & customized.
Sometimes we can not directly experience certain events or happenings and take pleasure in hearing about the tidbits & impressions passed along by others.
Art is largely an element of expression.

Love hearing other's impressions of a show regardless if they are positive or challenging.
Definitely not expecting everyone to have the exact same outcome...would be boring of that was always the case.
Talking in "haiku" ain't a bad a thing either.

Express.

Someone trying desperately to emulate mid-'60s Dylan critizising borrowed kicks is just plain absurd, though.

maybe it's hard to tell
because i don't dig emojis,
but i wasn't being snarky,
i was thinking about this:

you're missing out,
no review is better than being there,
you gotta be there,
sometime,
not just for soul reasons
but to appreciate dylan,
it's just my little comment on things,
you really shouldn't let my musings disturb you so,
relax

Thanks for explaining yourself, . I think JP was just being a good friend because she knows about my condition. I didn't want to say it , but sadly my Agoraphobia never allows me to enjoy the live shows. Merry Llama's review brought me to about the third row in an empty theater so I was just appreciating that. Please be more considerate next time.

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Can't be considerate, but can willfully not grow up and grow some manners? Wow...

no, it's not a typo,
none of us can consider every possible
secret sorrow
that might be lurking in the humans hERe,
that's absurd consideration,
but i am sorry for her sorrow,
honestly

And that exactly is the reason not to attack someone just because you don't understand their point of view. Certainly more helpful than pity.

trying to recapture it for other people
really can't be done,
not even close,
"you shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you"
which i stand by,
now, i have some kicks to get for myself tonight,
you'll have to continue attacking me
without the pleasure of my replies

I glad my words were valuable to some, but especially glad they were good for Lisa.
As far as what was written, I can't argue with anything I said! It all happened.


But it certainly didn't capture the experience for the gentleman next to me in the bathroom screaming profanities about how much it sucked and pointing out he didn't play any good songs. Maggie's Farm for example.

Did you hear the idiot in the front that yelled Maggie's Farm at Bob at least 3 times between songs? Probably the same idiot.

Most likely same guy. Did not hear him during the show, but his voice sounded quite hoarse in the bathroom. Must've been busy with all that shouting.

possible
for you to write
in complete sentences.
you are not bob
writing last thoughts
on woody

Why does Arena's prose bother some others?
What am I missing?

"The purpose of punctuation is to facilitate reading and writing by indicating the necessary pauses. The aim of punctuation is to clarify meaning and prevent misunderstanding."

Just a hunch. Personally, I'll not lose sleep over posts I don't have to read.

I just sat down to listen to the new SPOT recording. It's incredible that I am able to relive this show in really great sound.

Bob sounds really good on Highway 61. This was really Bob's only "fun" track. It's situated up near the front to kind of lighten up your heart for what he's going to bring down on you for the rest of the set.

Baby Blue has more bum notes on the piano than I remember hearing live. But what a song of truth, speaking about love and loss. You better grab it fast, it will be gone before you know it.

High Water is apocalyptic; it really puts a pit of dread down in your belly.

There's a difference between personality and affectation. Unless english isn't his primary language. He says I don't get it. I say get over it.
