A couple weeks ago at work I heard It's All Over Now, Baby Blue on the radio. I actually stopped what I was doing and checked online to make sure the great man hadn't died. Then I realized it was the anniversary of that album being released.

I was at a Jeff Garlin (a comedian) show about two February's ago at Caroline's in NYC. He requested the sound guy play obscure tracks so one of them was Dylan's I Believe In You. I got a kick out of that. During his set Garlin also spoke about going to a Leonard Cohen show in LA and how a couple in front of him made him uncomfortable with their makeout session.

I can't remember which Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie I was watching, but during a scene when the sun was setting the human guy goes "look at the sun" and then the robot goes "sinkin' like a ship."

Traipsing around Home Bargains (cheap shopping outlet) early this morning, a spring was put into my step when over the tannoy Like A Rolling Stone blasted out to awaken everybody from their Saturday morning stupor. Six minutes of mental escape, much needed by myself at that particular moment.

We're a bit behind here in New Zealand, the insurance money didn't come through after the fire.

Our local radio station played 'New Morning' this morning for Bob's birthday. Happy birthday Bob Dylan, thank you!

I've just got a text. I don't know the details, but apparently Nick Hewer has just had a right go at Bob Dylan on Countdown. Crazy scenes.

What!?! No not that nice man with the word game on telly; what did he have a go at him about, not replying to his many invitations to join the show as a celebrity guest? Or something even more spurious?

I've received some follow-up information. Apparently, Mr Hewer saw Dylan at the RAH and thought he was rubbish. He also mentioned Paolo Nutini. I was actually on the show once, leavinclaud. Played two games. In the first game, I was rather good.

I haven't watched since 1988. Then I graduated. Tell more, lest modesty forbid or tastefulness dictate against

I think it's now more of a panel discussion of popular music.

Wouldn't make it any easier for you. You're not a fan of popular music

I like The Cheeky Girls, Vanilla Ice and Bob Dylan - so, good point.

And perhaps started The Set. Gabriela, Monica and Vanilla played the same songs every night.

To be fair, they were the only songs they knew.




ETA: And I thought you liked Vanilla (the band) as well as Vanilla (the Ice).

I don't think their legacy will be the same. Unlike Vanilla Ice and The Cheeky Girls, Vanilla have only ever produced one pop classic.

At the dentist office getting a new crown---$$$$$ The song playing on the radio was Like A Rolling Stone. He's not played too much around here, so that was great.

^a couple of days ago, Just Like A Woman in the inner waiting room of an eye doctor's office-Which was surprising, but even more surprising because of the Jewel interview I was reading at the same time it began playing- and she was mentioning traveling with Bob Dylan and said that he would talk to her after the shows and ask her why she wrote this or that lyric, and she also said she would "kick people out" of the shows sometimes. :?: and that she thinks he liked it when she did that, too. :)

Long time ago in a Pizza Hut, Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands! Had to get up and go to the jukebox. There it was. Pizza Hut in Fitchburg, MA.

Watched the movie Aloha (2015) yesterday.
There's a scene in it where you can hear some familiar chords for a few seconds, no singing though.

Location: Out in the wilderness
A couple years ago, I spent about five months studying in Galway, Ireland. One weekend in April I took a brief trip to Barcelona with two girls, one of whom I was desperately hung up on, but who toyed with my affections and strung me along pretty good.

The weekend, for the most part, was a disaster. Plans were made hastily and executed poorly. For instance, I wasn't even staying in the same hostel as my friends. And as if it hadn't been obvious many times before, I grew aware that this girl did not feel about me the way I felt about her.

On my last night in Barcelona, I parted ways with the girls as they headed for their own hostel. I smoked a lonely cigarette under dim lamp-light and sauntered down empty streets. When I reached my train station, I descended the stairs and followed long subterranean corridors. The route to the train felt longer than usual, and suddenly I was in a long, arched, white-brick hallway lit by unseen fluorescent lights. The walls were bare, the red cement at my feet dry and swept clean. Not a cigarette butt or leaf of newspaper to be seen. I felt like I was in an infirmary in heaven. Fittingly, a scrawny young guitar player at the far end of the hall was butchering "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," substituting the lyrics I know with unintelligible ad-libs.

So there I was, feelin' low and mean, advancing through this celestial hallway to the rough sounds of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door." The musician paid no attention as I passed, instead crudely jamming on his electric guitar plugged into a miniature amp at his feet. Beside it, an empty guitar case with a few coins in it. When I located my train in the next room and sat down, I wondered whether what had just happened was real, or some fever dream dreamt in the moments leading up to my death.

And I had only had one beer that night!

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?
