The Week's Best News & Posts

  • Last Night in Austin (by Lee Ranaldo) (Flagging Down) [10]
    • “His piano playing seems almost purposely in-and-out of meter at times, just skimming the surface of the tempos, in a way that keeps the music so lively and refuses to let it become rote – ensuring that it is new and original every night. He’s still willing to walk the high wire – no, not willing to – determined to, and to not letting anyone on stage phone in it.”
  • The Story of Bob Dylan in an Eclipse (Eclipse Witness) [3]
    • “The path begins in Upper Minnesota, with both Dylan’s hometown Hibbing and birthplace Duluth, and adopted home of Woodstock ( Bethel New York) in the eclipse totality. 16 years and four months before the birth of perhaps our nation’s greatest cultural figure, Bob Dylan.”
  • Chalamet’s Next Movie May Kill His Box Office Streak (Screen Rant) [3]
    • “With Mangold directing, and Chalamet already proving to look almost exactly like Dylan, A Complete Unknown still has a good chance at being successful despite breaking Chalamet’s recent career trend.”
  • High Water Pt. 25 653 10th Avenue, Hell’s Kitchen (Untold Dylan) [8]
    • “It is the music, that resolute use of just one chord, that unchanging banjo, that playing around with the melody, and that absolute sense that tells me that no matter what, it is NOT going to stop raining, and that everyone is doomed.”
  • The Perfect Bob Dylan Movie Doesn’t Feature Bob Dylan (Collider) [5]
    • “The film is I’m Not There, directed by Todd Haynes (May December), and what makes it so special is that it is a Dylan movie that does not even feature a character with his name. Dylan tells us right in the title, “I’m not there,” and the film instead follows six different characters who are all inspired by aspects of his life, persona, and musical eras.”
