In this month's Mojo two people (one of the guys from Penn & Teller, and Beverley Martyn) chose a Bob Dylan LP as their favourite record. Nothing too strange in that until you discover that they were 'Tempest' (2012) and 'Infidels' (1983) respectively.

Now I'm all for an appreciation (not TOO BIG an appreciation) of Dylan's career, but are these choices down to respecting the guy's career rather than actually thinking that a 1983 Bob Dylan LP could actually be his best album or even the best album ever?

I've noticed in those Uncut/Mojo Specials that anyone with a long career always has classic records liberally spread across their career, almost as a justification for the magazine itself, but surely Dylan's worst LP of the 60s (which these magazines might lead you to think would be the 1st LP, Another Side or Nashville Skyline) wipes the floor with Oh Mercy or Time Out Of Mind or Infidels or Tempest?

In the words of Bob Dylan and Dave Von Ronk...

That's interesting. And speaking of interesting so is Dave Von Ronk's voice. I like it and how he did House of the Rising Sun. I can see why Dylan used his version.


For the last several days I've had
"Turned on my record player—
It was Rock-a-day Johnny singin’, “Tell Your Ma, Tell Your Pa
Our Love’s A-gonna Grow Ooh-wah, Ooh-wah”
stuck in my head. I love that line but I was kind of disappointed to discover that the only Rock-a-day Johnnys I could find on Google was a puppet and Elton John, who was credited that way on a Jackson Browne album. I thought there was a new-to-me artist to discover!

Aw, Dave and Kelley, it's nice that you are so kind to your animals.

Thanks Kathy. I love my dogs but the thoughts of losing this one and then going through it three more times are overwhelming me right now. I wonder, like I did when we lost 2 close together in 2009, if I ever want to get another puppy. It just seems to get harder each time. Hearing about your son and little Sparky put tears in my eyes. I felt the same way about my first hamster, Critter. She was a little sweetheart. The second one though; not so much. I didn't shed a tear over that little biter! I don't think he was too well socialized at the pet shop. LOL

Several hundred activists from nationalist political party Right Sector lined up in columns, came to the parliament building in Kiev and demanded the resignation of Rada appointed Acting President Alexander Turchinov and Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.
I wonder, will western press write about it.

Aw, Dave and Kelley, it's nice that you are so kind to your animals. We don't have any pets right now, but I can identify with your devotion (as I'm sure many people can). We've had dogs, turtles, betta fish, and hamsters. I think the worst was right before the kids and I have to move from the house to an apartment because of the divorce. My son's hamster, only 10 months old, got a tumor in his cheek pouch, we think; I feel horrible, and always will, because I was so distracted I didn't notice until it was too late. The incredible veterinarian we took him to painstakingly made up a dozen teeny-tiny doses of antibiotics, and for about a week my ex and I hand-fed him the  medicine and human baby food, because the poor little guy couldn't chew. It was too late, though; he got a little better but was steadily losing weight. We finally had to put him out of his misery. My son cried himself to sleep for weeks. The timing could not have been worse. The vet was so incredible, even sending us a little sympathy card with Sparky's paw-prints on it.

Anyway, it is gratifying to read how kindly you treat your pets.

P.S. "Bumble foot" sounds like something I myself could be diagnosed with  ;)
It's OK! I know how to treat it now!

I hope so! It's tough to see your pets suffer. Our Popcorn chicken is getting over a case of "bumble foot', a staff infection. Probably from staying in the coop too much in this hard winter. It doesn't seem to bother her but were exhausted from changing bandages and giving her antibiotics! Most people would just chop off their heads but... it's our Popcorn.

Popcorn is a very lucky chicken to have you and Nancy taking such good care of her! Our little patient had another seizure this morning. One more this month and we'll have to put her on medication. We're arranging things so someone can be with her all the time, until Sunday but I know we can't keep this up forever.  :(
