ROBERT ZIMMERMAN, 70 YEARS OLD TODAY.
"MAY YOU STAY FOREVER YOUNG"
"More than thirty years ago, when a world now most often spoken of as an error of history was taking shape and form--and when far older worlds were reappearing like ghosts that had yet to make up their minds, cruel and paradisiac worlds that in 1965 felt at once present and impossibly distant--Bob Dylan seemed less to occupy a turning point in cultural space and time than to be that turning point. As if culture would turn according to his wishes or even his whim; the fact was, for a long moment it did." GREIL MARCUS

obviously, nola is on my mind. i'll be there in a week.
last time we were there, we caught glen david andrews at dba. mr andrew is a member of another astonishing new orleans musical families. there's got to be something in the water there. glen david caught sight of ann & spent the rest of his set "boning" her. you figure it out.
this is the old mac rebennack song from his long ago gris-gris album. it simply roars here. this is the kind of thing you can easily just stumble upon in various venues around the city.
