...albeit she's not asking for a refund.

Her comments linked to the front page seem to be those of a perfectly normal music fan, but she's getting bashed in the comments, apparently for being banal and unschooled in the ways of geniuses. I think her reaction is perfectly congruent with a MUSIC FAN. The fact that she's 'horrified' by the Sinatra betrays her generation, but not her common sense about the quality of entertainment she witnessed.

I sympathize with this columnist. When seeing Bob, the fun pops up for fleeting instants at best, and you can't take it with you as a memory. The not-fun wins out every time, imo because Bob may be living out a grim promise he made to some celestial entity. He certainly talks about touring in glorified/heightened terms, and considers the perfect silence of zero stage banter to hold a real power. I can appreciate this, but not tour after tour of it.

A few clicks in Google would have told the lady in Prince George what to expect. To whine about the absence of "folk music, acoustic guitar and harmonica" at the current shows is just silly. It's like expecting "Dark Magus"-era Miles Davis to play "Bebop". Luckily artists like Miles and Dylan do not listen to silly complaints.

Btw why is that link even on the frontpage? Waste of space.

I don't know, but I bet Dylan is really very fantastically so very hurt , sad, He might need a new manager after this disappointment or just carry a very bigly :idea:

If I want to hear Dylan sound like 1965 or '75 or '95 or 2005 I'll pull an album or tape or Cd out and play it.
If I want to hear something just like it sounded 20 or 40 years ago I'll go see (and have to pay bigly bucks) Eagles or some other good cover band :!:

Perhaps Karl Erik thinks people from far-flung locales with points of view far from the bob bubble are worth hearing?

If you really think about it, isn't fun just another form of getting whipped? :wink:

She's horrified.
Whatever...it seems like a fairly typical response by someone who tangentially liked Bob in the past.
No big deal. We run into these folks most of the time...it ain't uncommon.

It's a play on words from a scene in Don't Look Back, and you have successfully outed me as a fanboy.

Only if you think (referencing your above post) getting blown and having teeth scrape your dick is a blast

There's a dirty joke somewhere in here between George and his Regina

Not sure I'm overstating her case by saying the NET is unfulfilling entertainment - for the simple reason that he refuses to treat it as entertainment. Except when he dances yo

Must not have gotten any smiles from bob. Probably not the only innocent to be fed up with bob's lack of engagement as he delivered a beautiful and polished set. Doesn't she understand ?- bitch slap-
well, she might give it another go before it comes to blows or blowing anybody really
Let's hope bob cooperates next time she visits prince george.

I'd have said blow me regardless of the author's gender, just to be clear.

If you think that's a misquote you've never been misquoted!
It may seem like a gotcha thing but language use tends to be heavily gendered, and you never would gone there (busy self-ass kissing thus unable to perform oral sex) with a dude. Just sayin

Why not? Guys can have their heads up their asses as well as ladies can.

Exactly. I'm saying it never would have occurred to him to say a dude was kissing his own ass and thus unable to suck a dick.. It's the casual way we sexualize women's contributions
