Ratherism or Dylanism?

"If you believe that, folks, then you'll believe rocks can grow."

"New York Times said it was the coldest winter in seventeen years; I didn't feel so cold then. "

"His lead is as thin as turnip soup."

"Through the mad mystic hammering of the wild ripping hail, the sky cracked its poems in naked wonder."

"sweeping through the South like a big wheel through a cotton field."

"The pump don't work 'cause the vandals took the handles "

"he's got his back to the wall, his shirttails on fire and the bill collector's at the door."

"your cracked country lips, i still wish to kiss, as to be by
the strength of your skin"

"If a frog had side pockets, he'd carry a handgun."

"Paupers change possessions, each one wishing for what the other has got "

"We don't know what to do. We don't know whether to wind a watch or bark at the moon."

He'll dodge any questions about his "living legend" status and instead steer the conversation to folks like the Kingston Trio. There will also be a supporting interview with Bono, and maybe Joan Baez and Willie Nelson. Dylan will consent to be interviewed on the grounds of his farm in Minnesota, or maybe just a farm in Minnesota. If not, maybe he'll give a tour of the places he used to play in New York. Or maybe he'll just try to find some neutral ground. Upstate New York?

"Dylan's going to tell Ed Bradley and Mike Wallace what young folks like him are trying to do with their crazy new music."

This made me chuckle out loud.

Mike Wallace will probably try to hit him up about insurance fraud from his motorcycle wreck.

It was a terrible interview. Bob didn't really say anything. Ed Bradley asking really stupid questions: "You really were being called the saviour/prophet/voice-of-a-generation, weren't you!????!!!" Dylan never opened up at all. What a waste. I still want to read the book though.

I've read the first few chapters of the book and so far it is great - exceeding all my expectations.

Ed Bradley is weak.

Ratherism or Dylanism?
This is brilliant. I think you only missed one Ratherism:

"This presidential race has been crackling like a hickory fire"

but I guess that would have been a giveaway.

Did you cut and paste that from somewhere or should I cache this page off-line now?
