I just got "Modern Times" from the library and bunged it on my walkman (how 21st century am I.) It's ok, funny in places, but my initial thoughts are that it's dissapointing. But then again I suppose he has the same dilema (sp) as Macca - he's already changed the course of popular culture once and nothing is going to match that.

Bloody good point. It's late, and I shall respond more tomorrow, but that's possibly a thread in the making!

OMG!!!!!! I'm going to see Dylan in May! I waited in line for four hours to get tickets, but it was worth it!!! They are great tickets, too- sixth row!

Sorry for my over-use of exclamation points but I'm just soooooo excited!

Yeah, and he's trapped by now long preconceived notions of what a "Dylan" record is supposed to be like. Everybody thinks "Blonde On Blonde" or "Freewheelin'." He's stuck with the public image he had at the time he made his biggest impact, and the same is true of The Beatles of course: whenever newspapers over here do a story about them, it's the 1964 image, complete with "moptop" cliche that's most likely to be rolled out.

Sorry, Mairi: that review's so badly written that the writer has made his own competence more the issue than he has the substance of what he's written. I've taken it down. I was just wondering if anybody had seen Dylan anywhere lately and what they'd thought of the performance.  :)

Well, I thought he was great. The guy who wrote the review obviously wasn't a big Dylan fan because he would have known that Dylan always changes up his songs when playing them in concerts. Also I was glad he didn't do the whole "Hey how ya doin, you're a great audience!" thing. He doesn't care how Halifax is doing, we know he doesn't care, so why pretend otherwise?

I hadn't bothered to read the whole thread, of course, or I wouldn't have posted such a poorly written piece of journalese in the first place. The writer was parroting the usual conventional banalities about Dylan's live shows, and after reading it I wondered what non-parrots not writing semi-literate hackwork for pay made of Dylan these days. The link's here:

Glad to hear Leonard Cohen's still performing.

I love his just woke up look. Which he pretty much always has. It works for him though.

I've never seen a picture of Bob where he looks like he's had a decent night's sleep.  8)
