Like a Rolling Stone

I don’t know what to make of this. But there are a lot worse things you can do than spend a few minutes listening to Bob Dylan singing one of his greatest hits, as if it were being done by a whole variety of different TV channels that you can choose to surf through.

    It’s entertaining and well done and a great song, but ironically, it does remind me Invasion of the Body Snatchers, or The Matrix and similar movies including zombie flicks where Agents, or the Gov’t or Conspirators or Aliens use some technology whether it’s drugs, or mind control, or “mind rays” to take over entire populations and direct them to the same task, such as searching out the hero, and pointing him out, or repeating the same message in unison.

    So sort of creepy and non-individualistic in a way I doubt Bob Dylan would approve.

    That said, pretty fun.

    Oh no there aren’t! Call me a philistine but I just can’t bear that godawful whining, nasal drone that’s supposed to pass as a voice. I’ll happily read his lyrics, and mighty powerful stuff (some of) it is too, but nothing short of a gun to my head can induce me to listen to him.

    Thought I’d add; I’ve always felt the same about Dawkins. I have all of his books except the latest, have and do enjoy multiple reads of them, but cannot stand the patronising tone of his voice.
    That’s the beauty of reading, one can give the words any voice one wishes to.
