First, go here and check out these MP3's of Johnny Cash singing with Bob Dylan: An Aquarium Drunkard's Music Blog.
Then, tell me . . . isn't it Miranda July in this Blonde Redhead video? Strange.
Other music news, Neil Young is going to release a 1968 Live Album. I heard the "Sugar Mountain" track here.
A student asked me how to read line breaks and I found myself saying something I heard from an old teacher--that a line break was "half a comma." WTF?! I'm sounding more and more like my old profs. I THEN followed up by saying, "Yes, a line break is musical, visual, and narrative in nature, so you need to honor them as you read them." Woah. There are some gray beard hairs in my milk.
