    Oooo-oooo-oooo… Ouch. Another reason not to buy Self Portrait. But who knows, after 5 beers I may like Dylan’s version?

    Wheres the Moonies, when you need them?

    Don’t blame Kat for this one. I must confess including this song today was my idea — what with it being a blue moon and all the recent discussion about Self Portrait — and then Hedley plays hooky and doesn’t take the bait. Sadly, it’s probably the best tune on the album 🙁

      im6,
      I wanted to post this though it is nice of you to shoulder the burden of choice. I too though Hedley would have had something to say.

      I agree about it being the best song in the album though….

    • Birgit Says:

      I thought “im6?” when I saw the source in the mp3-tags.
      Double the song speed (leave pitch unaltered) and it’s a funny dance tune 🙂 (Is it blasphemy to play with Dylan recordings?)

    Firstly I apologize for my non appearance yesterday to respond to Katmar’s decision to post another bloody awful Dylan song from Self Portrait/Son of Self Portrait.

    I sort of like it when Dylan is overtly delusional like when he thought he could sell out the Palace this year (with Mark Dire Straits) and had to bail to the Fox. Perhaps he has been beaned too many times by a wayward Boston pitcher.

    My skies are blue, there is not a LFC in sight, I heard someone say yesterday that Borussia Dortmund is one of the greatest stadiums and environments for a game which should make the Bochum Belle happy. I am more preoccupied by the departure of Gareth Bale for Real Madrid at a fee approaching $150M and the influx of new names and faces to challenge me on game day. Through the wonderful NBC Sports I can see every Tottenham match live this season without a subscription.

    With the involvement of Mr Austin, this could be the worst song posted on KTCC this year – I am wide open to discuss other nominees for KTCC Crap Croc Song of 2013

      My Dear Hedley,
      Okay, a contest! KTCC regulars, what was the Crap Song of this year thus far?

      We really did miss you. There was the bait, a song from Self Portrait, but where was our Hedley?

      Today is going to be a hot one, high 80’s, so we are all in the comfort of the AC. Later Gracie and I will do a dump run, but I’m saving that as a surprise!!

  5. Hedley Says:

    Great, so you are taking Gracie to the dump on a Wednesday ? Talk about how to confuse a hound, she will think its Saturday and be all fired up for your guests for movie night.

    • katry Says:

      MDH,
      We went on Thursday last week so Gracie has no idea what day it is. Movie night is Sunday each week, and I need to figure out this week’s movie.

      Gracie will love her trip.

      • Hedley Says:

        This is just plain wrong, stop confusing the dog and stop pandering to im6 to shamelessly drag me in to an anti Self Portrait position and having movie night on a Sunday when it was supposed to be on a Saturday.
        In our home we have seen a lot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and I mean a lot.

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        Gracie didn’t mind. I cooled the car first so she wouldn’t find the trip too hot, and she looked out the windshield as she usually does. Admittedly the dump is much less interesting on a Wednesday afternoon.

        Pandering, not at all. I was hoping for a wonderful reaction from you and movie night had to be changed to Sunday. My friend, who taught music and is a musician himself, got a gig at a local playhouse and had only Sunday and Monday off so we adjusted.

    — a very good article regarding Self Portrait and the new Another Self Portrait.

    I don’t wish to argue (nor care much for Blue Moon) but I believe most folks remain clueless about this interesting phase in Dylan’s creative journey. I initially felt the same when it came to his so-called “christian” period. I’ve since come to appreciate many if not most of those songs, as well as his recent work too. Those of us who create know that not every work is a masterpiece but hopefully may well lead to one.
