Review: Deliberate Pacing & Stylized Action are Distracting Enough to Make Up for a Derivative Story in 'The Equalizer'

A film like “The Equalizer”, as entertaining as it is, is the kind I never thought I’d see from Denzel Washington. Over the years, Washington has attained…

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS NEEDED

I’m planning to catch up on my reading during the summer and I really need recommendations
I really like books that are science fiction or fictional and those books that have a John Green type of vibe. I also really like horror books too but any kind of genre is welcome !!

On the occasion of the great man turning 75 it’s impossible to pick just one Dylan song.

Fortunately he wears a fantastic wig in this video so it kind of chose itself.

You Name Something, and I'll Protest About It Said Bob Dylan

Richard Green, Record Mirror, 14 May 1966

BOB DYLAN stuck his head through the window, placed his foot on the window ledge and — from outside — asked: “Is anyone in here?” This performance was way up in the Mayfair Hotel where an alleged Press conference was taking place.

For a reason known only to himself, Dylan had climbed out of a window, across the balcony and onto the ledge adjoining it. The fact that if he slipped he would almost certainly be killed didn’t seem to worry him. In fact, he came close to smiling about his little adventure.

When he finally rejoined the swarm of reporters and photographers inside, he sat at a table facing them, covered his mouth with his hand and asked: “Is this a microphone?” It was.

We were told that “Mr. Dylan is prepared to answer any of your questions,” and the session got under way. Until then, I’d always thought that Juke Box Jury was the funniest thing ever. But Dylan’s handling of the Press left that standing.

“Are you married?” asked one man. “I’d be a liar if I answered that,” replied Dylan. “And I don’t lie.” The man persisted: “Well, tell the truth, then.” Said Dylan: “I can’t answer your question. It would be foolish of me.”

MEET THE WIFE
An American woman who was clutching a salami sausage which transpired to be a microphone smiled and the reporter asked: “Is she your wife?” — “Who? Oh, her? Yeah, you can say she’s my wife,” Dylan pronounced. — “No, my husband wouldn’t like it,” said the woman, spoiling the whole game.

This sort of thing went on for a long time. When Dylan was asked why he wrote songs that bore no relation to the title, he asked for an example. He was told that ‘Rainy Day Women’ was a case in point, and commented: “Have you ever been in North Mexico? If you had, you’d understand what the song was about.” How useful.

NOT A CLUE
Someone decided to bring the marriage bit up again and wondered if Dylan was married to Joan Baez. “Joan Baez was an accident,” said the singer. — “A mistake?” asked the reporter — “No, an accident, I brought my wife over last time and nobody took any notice of her.”

At last, an admission. “So you are married, then?” — “I’d be a liar if I answered that.” — “But you just said you had a wife.” — “That depends on what you mean by married.” — “Is she a common law wife?” — “I don’t know what you mean by common law.”

This type of exchange was repeated often, but Dylan wouldn’t give or take an inch. Asked if it was fair to assume that he was married, he said: “You can assume what you like.”

Asked if he had any children, he said: “Every man with medical problems has children.” Asked what his medical problems were, he said: “Well, theres glass in the back of my head and my toenails don’t fit properly.”

Dylan’s bunch of assorted film camera-men and sound recordists were happily enjoying the farce which was obviously being staged for their benefit. They continually trained cameras on the reporters and pushed weird microphones at people who spoke.

FOLKSY UNION
“Why don’t you write protest songs anymore?” someone wanted to know — “All my songs are protests, you name something and I’ll protest about it,” Dylan pointed out. Then he laughed at a photographer who was sitting on the floor.

Dylan, in a series of replies, informed us that he didn’t know why he was in England, was 48 years old, didn’t have a name for his backing group, didn’t know how much he earned and had no idea where he would be appearing while here.

Then someone mentioned folk singer Dana Gillespie and at once Dylan brightened up. He laughed out loud, smiled broadly and. asked: “Yeah where is Dana? Come on out Dana. I’ve got some baskets for her. Put your clothes on.”

Obviously some connection there, but nobody was giving anything away. Until that night when Dylan went to Blaise’s to see his friend John Lee Hooker. With him was Dana Gillespie. She was smiling nervously at people and Dylan was talking a language all his own. English words but used in a sequence of phrases that could be understood only by his close friends. And there were plenty of them.

Three nights later, Dana Gillespie came up to me in the street and said: “Do you know who’s coming back tomorrow? B.D.” Could it be possible?
