A Beautiful Bob Dylan Blog

Here is a Bob Dylan blog, from someone in Spain, with beautiful photos and accompanying poetry and prose. It is in Spanish by the way, but well worth perusing.

I Hate Bob Dylan

I bought Live at the Gaslight 1962 as soon as it was available in Starbucks. Then I bought the No Direction Home soundtrack set as soon as it came out. I have been listening to nothing else in my car the whole time, except for the times when my wife insists on listening to one of her CD’s of Cantonese ballads. Last Sunday, the whole family was about to go somewhere. I got in the car before my wife and got Mr. Dylan on the CD player before my wife could ask for her Chinese music.

My oldest son Andrew, age 12, announced, “I hate Bob Dylan.”

My wife, who doesn’t necessarily like her age to be announced, shouted “I hate Bob Dylan too.”

My son Michael, age 10, chimed in, “Me too…”

Sade Live

My wife and I have always liked the music of Sade.

When I do housework, I like to put some kind of music on. At my local Hollywood video, I had already rented and listened to most of the good but few music videos they have in stock. But then I found a Sade tape that I had overlooked—Sade Live (link above). The sight of her, and the sound of her music, blend together seamlessly into a broad, flowing non-stop rush of feminine energy and love. Everything about her is gorgeous. She wears a white sequined top, a full length skirt that is slit up the back, with a bare torso and belly. God, she is so beautiful to look at. From the looks of her I’d say she has had a baby or two, which kind of adds to her womanly image, if you ask me. She must most certainly works out.

I don’t even dance, but I keep finding myself dancing in the kitchen and living room.
