Anomaly #1...

I am a big fan of the music of Phil Ochs, Billy Bragg, Utah Phillips, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and various other socialist/protest rockers,

BUT

I don't own a single Bob Dylan album. I just never got into his music.

I did download "Hurricane" for my I-Pod because it reminds me of that kick-ass scene from "Dazed & Confused" when they're all walking into the arcade for the first time.

You don't own Blood on the Tracks? How do you live?

I'm just discovering Dylan too. It is really rather good stuff.

I was on a massive Bob Dylan kick a few summers ago. I don't care what people say, I think his voice is possibly the most beautiful the world will ever know. I shit you not.

His music is much better when covered by others. I have "A Nod to Bob" which is amazing.

I have never met a Dylan song I didn't like. Unless, of course, he's singing it. The man is an amazing poet (nominated for a Nobel Prize in poetry, actually), but I disagree with Grant about his singing prowess. I can't stand his voice, actually.

Best Movie Ever. Bob Dylan.. Meh..

Dylan's a fake and a phony. He doesn't give a damn about anything folk music is supposed to stand for, which sucks for folkies because Blood on The Tracks is quite possibly one of the best albums ever made.
