We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The interviewer has an opportunity to dig deeper into Bob and his claim of transfiguration, but spends 1-1/2 pages trying to get his opinion of the One (and done, I hope).
Bob does a great job pushing back. Some of his retorts made me laugh out loud! But, Bob always cracks me up.
THANKS TO mAGGIE'S bd DESK'S POSTING IT, IM IN THE MIDST OF ONE OF THOSE FOGGY-MINDED BREAKDOWNS
ohhhhhh, do i haaaate capslock
where the thitherto half-forgotten mid-90s cut from "Time out of Mind" hit me upside the head with the enchanted baseball bat and the ensuing fugue state is the energizer bunny earworm who wants three hots and a cot every day the breakdown is brokedown.
Bob's best studio Not Dark Yet
plus these three covers (i listened to all i could find, these are standing out in the field):
(beautifully rendered & remarkably gutsy dylanesque-voiced by Robyn Hitchcock accompanied by Zeppelin's John Paul Jones)
Severa Gjurin --another young east European (guessing that by names and spellings) woman, also knows how to cast the spell of this song. This one is especially savvy in the instrumental arrangement --repeating the tones until your face surrenders and gets the throat lump and wet eyes.
