cowboy slim's

At Devon’s sixteenth birthday in July 1998, Dylan wore a gray Chemical Brothers T-shirt and baseball cap with the Boston Red Sox symbol sewn on the front. (Dylan was obessed with baseball.) The cover of the pre-printed birthday card Dylan gave her reads, “What are the chances you’re getting a birthday present?” Inside, the card says, “Between slim and nun.” A tall, slim cowboy is next to a nun. 

“Ahh a nice dab of mildly distasteful prewritten, pointless humor to brighten yer day AAAA?!”, Dylan wrote. And because Devon had totaled her 1973 Pontiac Ventura one week before her birthday Dylan added, “Happy B-Day. Don’t run me over or you’ll lose yer license and ill be pissed he he he.”  [Jeff Kass’ Columbine]

*Side note: The Chemical Brother’s Dig Your Own Hole album (Dylan’s shirt) just turned 20 the other day. Damn.

2013 robbed us of a lot of legends. The only consolation I have is the fact that each and every one was over the age of 70. They all lived long, successful, colorful lives and left us with a wonderful world of music to keep their memories alive.
