"An' there the police sat so patiently/waiting to find out white rice..."

"... you can put sardines on to get out of / eating all those leftovers twice."


(Remedial reading for the Dylan-deprived: here. Remedial listening: here. Best Dylan ever, arguably. Approximately.)

(Re-meade-ial reading.)

Yes. That or 'Visions of Johanna'. Best album definitely.

Definitely top shelf Dylan.

It's use in the opening credits was one of the few things that worked in "I'm not there", arguable the biggest film fiasco I've seen.

Yeah, yeah, the sixties.

God willing this belief that Bob Dylan matters will fade away peacefully, and soon...

(I'm maybe half serious... but that's half!

I hear he wrote a song with Johnny Cash, though, so that's something.)

Since I don't know what this Dylan business is about I'll make the completely square comment that rice mixed with tuna (or sardines), provided it's flavored with some balsamic vinegar and fennel, makes a very tasty, nutritious and low calorie dish. I have it often.

My favorite Dylan song is Isis because it's about Egypt and because its visual imagery is bizarre in a way similar to the way Egyptians themselves were bizarre and because I used it to practice sign made difficult to stay on point by its tempo and its disjointedness.

My second favorite is Black Diamond Bay which is even faster, on that same album, I think, for the same reasons, although it's not about Egypt.

I'm a "Visions of Johanna" man. And so many more...right now I'm thinking of "Jokerman," "Sweetheart Like You," "Dark Eyes," "Day of the Locust," "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" "Love Minus Zero/No Limit," and "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry." Also a cover from "World Gone Wrong": "Blood in My Eyes." But perhaps the ones that awe me most as historic innovations are "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and "Mr. Tambourine Man."
