BobP Dylan wins the Oscar (51* d) RE: Dylan wins the Oscar 26 Mar 01

Cuppla quick thoughts,

Don't ya spose them hollywooders was sorta takin' the chance to thank the ol'boy for his whole bag as much as that one song?

And, don't judge "Things Have Changed" by last night's gig. Really bad sound, I thought. I'll bet Bob was a bit nervous and tired, too.

But, think how lotsa folks will now cover it, each giving it his/her distinct interpretation.

I, for one, wanna hear the spectrum of lyrics rendered through different prisms before judging.

And, as for a kinder, gentler Bob, Remember, back in the "good ol' ays" whenever Bob was polite to a microphone, the next query invariably asked him to provide a detailed analysis to one of his epochs, or explain how he came to write a song about Medger Evers. Like asking Armstrong to explain astronomy and the moon program in fifteen words.

Thank goodness, he's a bit less taxed that way these days.
