Hear that Thunder


  1. A lot of people will say:
    "I never got what was so great about Dylan."

    I can illustrate it in one minute & eight seconds...

    Put the following URL into the browser and click "Go":

    Then scroll down to the first video on that blog bit - a scene taken from the movie 'NO DIRECTION HOME' - and watch it.

    Only Bob Dylan and maybe one in six or seven million other people would have thought to start rearranging the words on those signs in order to give them new meanings.

    And it wasn't just that he spontaneously had the idea to start rearranging the words, but look at how much enthusiasm he does it with!

    It's no mystery why Dylan will be featured in Time and in a gazillion other magazines and newspapers the day after he dies, while the rest of us will pass largely unnoticed.

    Say what one will about the quality of his voice or his personal life, but Dylan was a genuine wordsmithing genius, and if the rest of us possessed even one-tenth of his creativity and originality we'd all be rich 'n' famous too!
