Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Shop AMAZON*
Proves my theory that rock stars with a schmaltzy side live longer.
Dog encounters audible ice cream truck, a once in a lifetime wtf event, just now.
Bob's voice is worse than ever, but his message and words is even more the focus becaue of the strained voice of the old Prophet.
Aha! The perfect Christmas re-gift!
I'll get a copy. I am serious too.
The man is clear in his mind, but his soul is mad. Oh yeah. He's dying, I think. He hates all the cool, he hates it!
he may share my tiara.
And I was so hoping he'd be doing a song about rich, old women with dyed blonde hair who used to pretend they were hippies but now spend their time blogging about how much they miss George Bush. He'd be sooooo good at skewering them!
"He's probably just messin' with us?"Our tolerance for "messin' with" is growing, and faster than our country's debt even. Can that be a GOOD thing? But come on! It's Dylan!
It's pretty funny how people scream at Althouse, well, at least the lefty goon squads do anyway, about shilling for Limbaugh, but nary a peep when she literally kneels at the altar of Dylan, that once lone voice of 60's naivete. Ugh. I'm starting to hate Dylan. Thanks ALTHOUSE - and your a law professor!!!
Dog howls with siren, a once a month event, yesterday.
Hey Ann. Thanks for finding this and posting it.There is a recording of Amazing Grace sung by an old man with a broken voice that is very affecting (I'd love to find it again if anyone knows who or where it is).And Leonard Cohen's latest recordings are also done in a broken voice, and are nonetheless moving, especially his live recording of Hallelujah. So I don't know. There is, as others have said, still that prophetic voice and the orthoganality to coolness, which are in turn bracing and refreshing.But I don't know about the accompaniments, and I don't quite know from the little I could hear in what spirit the old Jew is singing Christmas songs.But my personal jury is still out. I might like to have the album.
The dying man video standard is Johnny Cash.
"Do you hear what I hear?"Rh, that Vicki is quite the young pup, and frankly, I've lost my interest in Dylan's Norman Rockwell musical moment for watching her, and you too, of course.While I always prefer looking on the bright side, I wonder exactly how this will work out for the both of you? Impressive trainer meets impressive student.And no "barking" allowed?
I like the sound.Its unique.
My point - and I do have one - is that if autotuning were around in Dylan's early days, he would have been just another face in the crowd.
Bob can have my crown.
When they go to the death counselling center for their morphine drip, this music will soothe the troubled spirits of many booomers.
I'd have gone with Fur Elise for the ice cream truck.
William...LOL. Are you on the Panel? If so, please play the Righteous Brothers for me to bring back the memories of my first love. I'll be going to see the granddaughter out at Lake Oconee tomorrow, and tell her more stories about her Daddy growing up. And God willing life will go on long enough for her to grow up. PS: don't forget to read Conroy's new book, South of Broad, for great Boomer stories from the South.
Why does everyone sound like they are on prozac tonight?
Fur Elise?I have my personal camera in on YOU, rh.Help me? I am lost, for now?
Some people have a vocal range of an octave or even several octaves. Dylan has now receded to a vocal range of about 4 tones. Even frogs have a wider vocal repertoire.Please say this is a joke and not a serious attempt. I hear a very sad weird man wandering along streets and being stopped as a probable crazy bum.
ha ha ha. It's a joke, people.
No joke.Some think it should be, though.
DBQ?What the hell?I know it is JUST another Friday. Would you mind if I expected you to be your best this Friday?
"Do you hear what I hear?NO.
For a Bob Dylan impersonator, he is really quite articulate. I wonder if he's clean, too.
It's a joke, right?I don't think so. Dylan has a catholic taste in music, including schmaltz (remember "Three Angels" from "New Morning"). Read once that he even complimented Barry Manilow on his song writing.What doesn't work here is meshing Dylan's voice with the elevator music, backup singers. This could be a failure akin to the Broadway musical based on his songs.
Enjoyed listening to the clip. Who would have thought that Bob Dylan would age so gracefully. Combined with the stories of him showing up unrecognized at the John Lennon museum in Liverpool and his calm encounter with the police in New Jersey....it seems that he is very comfortable being himself.
Maybe Dylan can start doing duets, like Sinatra. Charlie Rangel would be a good match, with Noo Yawk intonation.
I'm worried Bob won't get his crown.Hey, Althouse, what's with the knocks against Christian imagery?I assume that in the Althouse afterlife you'll game the caucuses, lose all the major primaries, but still receive a majority of votes from the Celestial College--just like your Messiah.
Bob should have smoked more cigarettes if he wants to sound like Tom Waits.
I actually thought this CD would be good, but I was wrong. Sounds like one of the worst Christmas albums ever.
