:lol: From his series of albums, Sinatra Ruins …. Sinatra Ruins Voivoid was a conceptual masterpiece marred by poor mixing, imo.

Finally got around to start watching Ken Burns' Vietnam documentary this morning (with no forethought, over the past four years I've settled into watching one of his documentaries over Christmas). The closing song of the first episode is "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall." The boss just got up as the episode was ending and muttered at the tv something about "that voice." I said, "I'll never be a true fan, but he's grown on me." She turned and gave me a perfect cinematic stinkeye and said, "Stop talking." Then went to turn on the coffee maker.

I find most things Dylan to be deeply boring.

Dylan’s often been celebrated as a great poet, which is laughable in the face of the actual garbled claptrap he produced. The usual Dylan lyric is an arbitrary and arrhythmic collage of pseudo-surrealist images. There are many here among us who think that life is but a joke, said the joker to the thief, as though he was Carl Jung after a lobotomy.

A comment Dylan made in 1966 that's been stuck in my craw (tho I'm not quite sure why right now).
Interviewer: Even though you've more or less retired from political and social protest, can you conceive of any circumstances that might persuade you to reinvolve yourself?
Dylan: No, not unless all the people in the world disappeared.

Maybe he was just fucking with people's expectations, as he tended to do, or was this a more sincere cynicism or world-weariness? Thoughts from those more knowledgeable the man and his views?
