"Wigwam."

 

Oh my...I've actually listened to that...or part of it (as I go on to the next track quickly when I really don't like something) when I was trying to make peace with Self-Portrait...which I was basically able to do...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wigwam_(Bob_Dylan_song)

Does anyone remember when a Dylan received a lifetime achievement award or something like that during what must have been the Grammies? I will never forget my shock when I realized that Dylan was singing Masters of War. I could barely recognize the lyrics. The lyrics are timeless and still so true. 

Maybe Musicare's 2015 Person of the Year?

Funny story.  Hadn't heard this one before.

They should have entitled this, "Bob Dylan's Urinating Elvis-- Or The Case Of The $750,000 Sofa."

Here's an alternate web page where the photo links work.

Thanks, W., for turning us on to this.

Thank you so much. Now I seem to have double links, but I'm ok with that...

Yes, I think we might all be surprised at the extent of Dylans antics.  In addition to having a really weird sense of humor, he seems to have done some pretty outrageous things that most of us couldn't get away with.  But that is charm, I guess...

Ha ha.  They could have, but it wouldn't have been politically correct...

If all the Masonic references in MMF are an indication that Dylan has actually been a Mason himself, or the narrator represents a Mason, could we then view the song as bragging that the Masons were behind the assassination?  Also, the Masons would probably be the only ones to get the implied joke? Hmmmmm....

For anyone who hasn't yet viewed the Stanley Marks page on this forum, "Murder Most Foul! The Conspiracy That Murdered President Kennedy" is now back in print for the first time since 1967:

Is another one of Dylan's R+RW alluding to the Warren Commission Report?
