Well Doxa thanks for that! I can happily disagree with your well-put and stimulating account. I'll even give another try to Modern Times in case I finally see the light.

I never said that. But I think that you are not in good faith, or you are simply misreading. James Joyce practices stream of consciousness (but not always: Ulysses and FInnegan's Wake are examples of stream of consciousness, but Dubliners isn't). Similarily, Dylan does it sometimes but not others. Now as explained above, Stream of Consciousness is a specific type of writing with specif

Oh dear. Yes that is standard enough. And while agreeing that Dylan is a master of this technique, I am saying that contrary to what you suggested, "I'm reading James Joyce" cannot be considered as a example of this practice. Is that clear enough? Or am I missing the point again? Well, I said I'd stop and this is really turning to hair splitting, so...

Well T&A, I don't think I missed the point. And if you open Joyce, for instance - surely the master of Stream of consciousness - you will see that the statements contained therein have odd syntax, associative vocabulary, and are characteristically not self-descriptive in the way "I'm reading James Joyce" is. So perhaps you used the expression stream of consciousness in

Oh and I add - sorry for the silly attempt at covering all bases - a word on "stream of consciousness". Stream of consciousness is an attempt to short-cut preformated descriptive statements: rather than describe, one expresses what goes on in his mind. Now by definition, reflexive statements can hardly belong to a "stream of consciousness". "James Joyce delights me

Wow! Just to clarify and pacify: - Gazza: I never said that one should only write about what one is doing. On the contrary, I mean that it doesn't matter what one is doing; that "I'm reading Joyce" must be understood as an element in the song's athmosphere, not as a report on what Dylan is doing. - And the discussion helped me clarify my own thoughts: although I do th

If someone calls me up and asks me what I'm doing and it happens that i'm reading Joyce, i'll answer "I'm reading James Joyce". But to put a name in a song is not a means of informing someone of what you're doing, for Christ's sake. Dylan, at the time when he's writing this, is not reading James Joyce. To insert a name in a song is an element in bui

Saying "I'm reading James Joyce" is snobbish name-dropping, which I find annoying anywhere. In a way, I'd rather he discreetly inserted a quote; a least there would be a real relation to Joyce and not just the name of the elite's favourite writer. That with mention of Billy Joe Shaver makes a mixture of "I got roots and culture too" which has been the essence

- "I'm listening to Billy Joe Shaver/And I'm reading James Joyce/Some people tell me I got the blood of the land in my voice," That's got to be the year's most pompous, self-satisfied sentence. Almost as bad as "She opened a book of poem... written by an Italian poet of the 13th century" and "your loyalty is not to me but to the stars above".

These days I'm not in a big Stones mood - and only, when that's the case, Still Life is the album I play most often. I think it's just the right length so that we are left wanting more (which, you know, is a GOOD thing!), I love the song selection and order. I also agree with Craven that it's much better than the boots. The boots have great moments but it's often loos

I really enjoy these... Even Doo doo doo sounds good! Which is not too often. Mick is in AWESOME voice, and Sympathy takes off really fine, with a very strong Keith. Such a long time ago already... Odd to be nostalgic about 1994! Thanks!

That been said, I just watch the San Diego videos kindly posted by UrbanSteel... they're just so good on All over now and Love is strong, and even Out of Tears - and that's 2 new songs (at the time) out of 3, so - I guess I'd mark the beginning of the decline after that.

Timbernardis, I struggle to think you're not joking. If you're not, then you really should attend a class of elementary logics soon. I love the way you attacked Doxa for not "proving" stuff, implying that only an omniscient deity could ever legitimately asserting anything (while all his points are perceptive and well backed-up) before flying into the most delirious fancy, rely

Jumping Jack Flash or Honky Tonk Women, because it is both directly related to the blues & soul of the roots, and has this take-it-one-step-further in terms of arrangements and lyrics. I also think the tone of Keith on the intro, and his shattered rhythm playing in the two couplets define his style perfectly.

Crazy Mama indeed feels like a rehearsal - so does Shame, I think. But that's kinda nice. Nothing earth-shattering here, but a good nice groove. More appealing than a lot of empty stadium performances, I enjoyed this, thanks!

"One way or another, these two have become powerful symbols to some people." Wow. Cultural studies really have gone crazy. So two events, which perhaps bear no relation one to the other, of which the latter perhaps has no major intrinsic significance, have come to been considered, perhaps, by some people, as two symbols (but not realities) in relation to two historical phenomena whic

Great fun, but I agree regarding Bernard. The problem is that the intentions are wrong! He sings the first line of Honky tonk women like it was some deeply serious psychodrama, hellooo???? She tried to take me upstairs for a ride?? He could be singing "Nobody knows the trouble i've seen, glory hallelujah" and sing it just the same way.
