Bob Dylan – Maggie’s Farm

Somehow, there are not a lot of great live Dylan options on YouTube but at least his music is still there. I’m never sure if it’s YouTube, his fans or Dylan himself that keep it that way. It’s a shame that it’s this way, but anything that involves the recording industry is going to be sticky.

Paris is now a few days away from winter weather, or at least Paris winter weather. The forecast has us dropping below freezing late next week though it’s not clear how long it will stick around. Last year, the temperature stayed below freezing for about three weeks, which was highly unusual for Paris. I was lucky enough to be traveling so missed it but I won’t be as lucky this year.

Even with the cold spell that’s ahead, it won’t be like my first winter in Columbus, Ohio back in the 1980s. Back then, it stayed below 0F for a month. I would finish work at night and would come out to my car at midnight or 1AM (ahh, restaurant hours) and every time I turned the key, nothing. Then it was the joy of finding someone else at that hour who could help jump start my car. Somehow I learned to hate winters that year.

    I hope people give Tempest a chance (Dylan’s latest album). It’s amazing and two cuts (Early Roman Kings & Pay in Blood) are his most ferociously political works ever. Ever.

    Dylan’s company or Sony hired Web Sheriff to chase off all the amateur and bootleg videos from YouTube. If you know where to find them, they are still available.

    The Solomon Burke cover of Maggie’s Farm, also issued in 1965, is amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2hwxSQZScQ

    We came out of the Indiana vs Minnesota game here in Bloomington, IN, yesterday mid-afternoon, to find it was 72 DEGREES F. If we do not get some zero degree weather at least once, the insect that attacked Indiana’s tulip poplar trees, a staple of our hardwood forests, will not die out in sufficient numbers. Their population will surge again this coming warm (warm? how about HOT!) season, and probably wipe out the majority of the species statewide.

    Welcome to the myth of anthropogenic climate change. Unfortunately (see Australia weather map adds new color to portray 129 degree days) this myth is having real, and disastrous, effects.

    I eagerly await how the corporations and right wing will spin it when, because of hot summer after hot summer, we can no longer grow corn and the other staple crops, which simply die in the field as they did last year when you have months of temperatures not just above average, but above 100 degrees.
