It's been almost two years to the day since I posted on this blog site. So much has happened that I don't have time to go into it. We are in a New Year and as Bob Dylan put it " leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you. forget the dead you've left they will not follow you. go strike a match, go start anew, cause it's all over now baby blue." Speaking of Bob, I guess he had a pretty good year in '07, Todd Haynes made a movie called I'm not there based on his life. I haven't seen it yet because it hasn't run in Augusta. Ga. I've seen the trailers for Cate Blanchett's portrayal of "Jude". She nails Bob during his Carnaby street clothes wearin', wild thin Mercury days. I think I'll make the drive to Athens, ga for a big screen viewing before I plunk down my money for the DVD.
I must be a Bob fanatic. I get up every morning and get on the 'net to visit Expecting Rain.com. It is probably the best Bob site on the web. I do this just be sure 1) he is still alive 2) to see what other people like me have written and posted.
I'd like to see Bob's art exhibit over in Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz (Germany). It's called Drawn Blank but I guess I'll have to wait for the American version.
I hear he's headed back to the studio this month with Rick Rubin and some other super producer Super Friend- I can't recall who?And Maybe Jack White is involved somehow.
I am going to try my damndest to have a good year in '08. It don't look too good with two weeks outta the chute- the Stock Market sux, Bush is still the Pres, A recession is looming, my supervisors at work have been back just one week and already are bitchin' up a storm. My ass is chapped, migraines are back, and still nobody pays their rent on time. Can this mess go anywhere but up?
