Wait it looks like Bob may be meeting with the Nobel people this weekend after all

https://akademibloggen.wordpress.com



The good news is that the Swedish Academy and Bob Dylan have decided to meet this weekend. The Academy will then hand over Dylan’s Nobel diploma and the Nobel medal, and congratulate him on the Nobel Prize in Literature. The setting will be small and intimate, and no media will be present; only Bob Dylan and members of the Academy will attend, all according to Dylan’s wishes.




Good for you, Bob!

"Without A Song" - Paul Whiteman (Bing Crosby, vocal) 1929 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZhp2NbvuBc

"I'd like to thank the Jaycees for electing me as one of their outstanding young men. When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed, has come true a hundred times... And these gentlemen over here, these are the type of people who care, they're dedicated, and they realize that it is possible that they might be building the kingdom of heaven, it's not just too far fetched, from reality. I'd like to say that I learned very early in life that "Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend — without a song." So I keep singing a song. Goodnight. Thank you."

-- Acceptance speech for the 1970 Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation Award - 16 January 16, 1971

Elvis Presley - Maybellene (Louisiana Hay Ride - Aug 20 1955) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFJoOxaCJBs

Elvis took his trophy with him on all of his travels for the rest of his life, so it definitely shows some wear and tear – but that just shows how important it was to Elvis and how much he loved it. The trophy and the suit Elvis wore to the awards ceremony are both now on display at Graceland.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

KHAOS (Chaos) was the first of the primordial gods (protogenoi) to emerge at the dawn of creation. She was followed in quick succession by Gaia (Gaea, Earth), Tartaros (the Pit Below) and Eros (Procreation).

Khaos was the lower atmosphere which surrounds the earth--both the invisible air and the gloom of fog and mist. The word khaos means "gap" or "chasm" being the space between heaven and earth. Khaos was the mother and grandmother of the other misty essences--Erebos (the mists of netherworld darkness), Aither (the ethereal mists of heaven), Nyx (the night) and Hemera (the day), as well as the numerous emotion-driving Daimones (Spirits) which haunted it. She was also a goddess of fate like her daughter Nyx and grand-daughters the Moirai (Moirae).

As the goddess of the air Khaos was also the mother of birds, just as Gaia (the Earth) was the mother of land animals, and Thalassa (the Sea) was the mother of fish.

Late classical authors redefined Khaos as the chaotic mix of elements which existed in the primordial universe, conflating it with the primal "Mud" of the Orphic cosmogony. The modern English word "chaos" derives from this.

Actually I would be pleased, if he played a set like that. These recordings are so beautiful and inspired.

How many hours until curtain call?

Smashingly beautiful venue.
Strange that he dropped I Cover the Waterfront from the album yet seems to spend a lot of time on it for this tour.

About 30' until doors open (which is 30' earlier than initially announced) and 2h until show time.

Getting there seems pretty straightforward, so I'm sure I'm gonna get lost. I guess I better leave now :lol:

So they asked everybody to get here earlier so we can now all wait together at the bar... :roll: On the bright side, they provide free WiFi. :)

Any news on a Soundcheck?

Most of the stage looks roughly the same as last Summer (small dif. probably due to venue constraints), but there's some extra stuff near the 4 mics at the center of the stage: Bob's guitar & amp are on his left with a lyrics stand behind it/in front of where Stu usually stands; right in the middle there's something that looks like an empty guitar rack; next to it are a small transport container and something behind it that I can't really tell what it is (probably part of Charlie's stuff).


But more interesting than that is the thing on the floor near the piano. I have no idea what it is (too small to tell from here), but I could swear I saw it moving around the cables.
