Bob Dylan's Lyrics

It took me years to figure out some of Dylan's lyrics. The actual words I mean. Sometimes he's hard to understand! Finally, the internet came along and was of great assistance. Now there's a book out, two actually, that deal with where the lyrics came from and some inkling as to what they might mean and their significance.

Here's the link to my review of Still On The Road, by Clinton Heylin.

Last year, I reviewed Dylan's Christmas album and now I'm looking for it because it's about time to start listening to Christmas music again. Sure got here fast!

Bob Creates a New Word -- "Politibacy"

My creative wife, Miss Bob, has been busy again. This time, she's come up with a new word. Her prolific writing (over 420 articles for Blogcritics in less than a year and 49 for Technorati in 26 days) has given her lots of opportunity for self expression and in doing so, she's come up with a great new word!

It is: " POLITIBACY" and she talks about and uses it in the first paragraph of her recent article reviewing a documentary by Oliver Stone.

It would have been great to have had this word when I wrote this article. It sounds better than "apolitical".

We would both appreciate some feedback; what do you think?

Another significant aspect is that this is true and more terrifying because it is. If you thought you were safe just because the Cold War ended, think again.

What's the 21st Century version of "duck and cover"?

Here's my review:
