So I'm watching a 2011 Russian film (Elena) tonight - same director as the Oscar-nominated Leviathan - and I hear Bob. Didn't expect that one. Rich old guy gets in his car for a drive and starts changing stations. The music is being played PROMINENTLY (no one in the car for him to talk to) and suddenly I recognize the tune ... "Well, my nerves are exploding, and my body is tense, I feel like the whole world, got me pinned up against the fence"

Wow, a TOOM tune in a modern Russian flick - who woulda thought?


It's become a must-see now. Good flick?

I liked it. Very Russian in spirit - if you're a fan of foreign films, give it a shot. Phillip Glass did soundtrack, too. Free on Amazon Prime, if you've got it...

If The Martian is as good as its soundtrack, it should be collecting the Best Movie
Academy Award next year.

If the Martian is as good as its trailer it will be fortunate to pick up a nomination. Trailers these days tell you nearly the whole story in 2 minutes and this looks extra-ordinary despite its setting. Nice Hendrix though.

Not sure if this counts, but I was walking around Havana and heard Bob's distinctive voice coming from a bar. I couldn't make out the song straight away and so I hung around for a while. Eventually I went into the bar and it turned out to be Tweeter and the Monkey Man, which was not what I was expecting!

Just heard 'Wigwam' feature quite prominently in a scene in the new BBC2 comedy Cradle to Grave, set in the 70's. That's Dylan! I always exclaim on such occasions, to whoever is around.

I was at the local watering hole a while ago and 'Wigwam' came on TV for an add for some computer game (I think), I said the same thing "That's Dylan!". All I got was a few blank stares. :)

Our local radion station is playing a tribute to the late Bob Johnston, kicked it off with 'Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine). :D

I heard All The Tired Horses in a funeral parlor during a wake. I don't know if it was by request or is standard background music.

Did a man ask you who you were?
And had you docked that morning, been locked up, escaped, given directions by a cow, and been shocked by a magic foot?
If not, how are we supposed to believe you?

Just now! On BBC Radio 4 a new comedy drama called Subterranean Homesick Blues(!) starring Anna Calder-Marshall and Bill Nighy (a Bob fan) starts - it begins with I Threw It All Away.

I swear this actually happened. I was listening to an obscure local station that never plays anything you've ever heard of. The DJ on a break gave the number for requests. To lazy to call I said "play some bob" to no one. There was a slight pause in the music, some murmuring and then.... "Judas!" I got out of bed, cranked it, and let loose on the best version of LARS ever imo. My neighbors were very understanding of all my yelling.

Just watching the delightful little movie "Alvin & The Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein" with the Grandkids, when one of the annoying little furry creatures (Chipmunks not Grandkids) just muttered "I'm not the (Man) you want, I'll only let you down"

Whilst strictly not hearing Bob, I thought it worth a mention. BTW the movie was made long after the song was written, I'm not claiming Bob stole the line from the chipmunks I'm not Scott W. :)

There's just been a wonderful documentary on BBC4 about the Roman poet Ovid. The programme started and ended with Beyond Here Lies Nothing. Ain't Talkin' was played as the presenter Michael Wood walked through Ovid's landscape of exile, "the last outback at the World's end." As Bob's quotes from Peter Green's Ovid translation were heard the original Latin phrases appeared and faded as captions on the screen, beautifully done. Dylan's engagement with Ovid was taken seriously and he was was in exalted company, his work was spoken of in the same breath as that of Dante, Pushkin and Samuel Beckett.

How unfortunate they lowered the standard by including Beckett.

This one’s kinda lame but just now on NBC news here in NYC they threw it to the sports guy and he started talking about the New York Giants. The headline at the bottom of the screen was “Tangled Up In Blue”.

For those that don’t know, the Giants wear blue uniforms (the team nickname is big blue). And since they keep losing I guess they’re tangled up in blue.

Anyway, that BBC doc on Ovid sounds cool.

In the waiting room at my doctors surgery. The 'soothing' piped music actually played Dylan, but it was

'Knocking On Heaven's Door'

Someone should have a word.

Watching a programme about the Roman poet on BBC 4 this week and was totally amazed when a Durham University professor linked Dylan to Ovid and played excerpts from Modern Times. Was not expecting that!

A propos which, there seems to be a new book 'Why Dylan Matters' by Richard F Thomas, well reviewed in Saturday's Guardian.

Heard tangled up in blue in a Costa coffeeshop yesterday. Pretty incongruous with the generically corporate setting
