  3. Sometimes Bob knows just what to say. Listening to this album on my way home from work didn’t feel so much like the proverbial ice pick to the heart. Maybe more like a rubber meat tenderizer.

  5. "Your breath is sweet
    Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
    Your back is straight your hair is smooth
    On the pillow where you lie
    But I don’t sense affection
    No gratitude or love
    Your loyalty is not to me
    But to the stars above"
    — Bob Dylan - One More Cup of Coffee
     
  6. Bob Dylan was my first musical/creative writing/inspirational love. Even after all of this time he still has a special place in my heart & mind. He is woven into how I think, write, and process — has shaped the pathways of my right brain.

    Dylan, for me, embodies the courageousness of spirit. He never asked what the world thought of his work; or at least it never really seemed that way. Have you listened to some of his albums from the 80s? I mean, they almost make me blush! But at the same time I love those albums and those songs because they were what he wanted to say. He didn’t necessarily give much of a crap how they would be received. There’s integrity in that.

    He keeps going. He is still touring, writing songs, carving his own unique path. I really respect that kind of spirit.

  7. Oh all the money that in my whole life I did spend
    Be it mine right or wrongfully
    I let it slip gladly to my friends
    To tie up the time most forcefully
    But the bottles are done
    We’ve killed each one
    And the table’s full and overflowed
    And the corner sign
    Says it’s closing time
    So I’ll bid farewell and be down the road.

    Restless Farewell ~ Bob Dylan

    Genius. Typography patron saint Jonathan Hoefler remixes a vintage teacher’s aid chart titled “The Child” with Milton Glaser’s iconic Dylan poster.

    This is simply too awesome.

  9. This is one of my favorite B-sidey Dylan bootleg songs. It’s called “Seven Days.” 

     
     

  10. "I think that when my back was turned,
    the whole world behind me burned
    it’s been a while,
    since we walked down that long, long aisle
    we cried on a cold and frosty morn,
    we cried because our souls were torn
    so much for tears
    so much for these long and wasted years."
    — Bob Dylan ~ Long and Wasted Years
