Never saw this one before.

In case that's Marlon Brando... why is he so dirty?

Bob--that chapter in "Chronicles" about how you took a long drive outside of New Orleans while on break from working on "Oh Mercy," and you had a long talk with an old black guy--you just made that whole thing up, didn't you?

If it's the chapter I'm thinking of (missus and motorcycle stop at roadside store), it was an old Chinese guy who opined that China was about to supplant the US as the world superpower.

Not THAT wild a claim, really.

Sun Pie--"dark face but Slavic features" (I suppose that's supposed to be Chinese).

Six pages of conversation about high-falutin stuff, all recalled word for word and reproduced in quotes. Suspect

He's just climbed off the footplate of The Pacific Chief. He's certainly got his leery eye on gamine little Bobby. Who's got herself between the two of them, I wonder?

Bob, of course, learned about "slavic features" from the movies:





Real slavs look like this:




And, of course, like this:

Since I can't find anything in Bob's description of Sun Pie that seems Chinese (and I can't imagine a Chinese person in America having a Mao poster Shocked ), I have to conclude that Sun Pie was probably about as Chinese as this guy:

Fair enough, Pinz. My bad. I see that I'll have to re-read it (when I get the time).

Seems that the Chinese ascendency theme misled me into believing that Bob's interlocutor was Chinese himself. The name 'Sun' might have contributed to this impression, I suppose.

No way could that be mere coincidence.

I agree, Bob wasn't a protest singer. He was a whiny boy clown

That Bob--he's a rascal. Suspect 

Bob writes about arriving in Minneapolis looking for "kindred spirits" in Dinkytown.

He said the first one he found was Spider John Koerner, the legendary Dinkytown folky, and they "started playing together alot."

Koerner says "Bob remembers this alot better than I do."  Laughing 

Beginner that he was, there's no way Bob could have kept up with the Dinkytown pickers.

He is light years ahead.


'Dylan’s willingness to enforce his copyright in cases where he feels his work has been infringed upon, and his attempts to conceal his use of external passages indicates that he is well aware of what he is doing.
One is left to wonder, with Dylan, not only whether what he has done is fair, but whether it is worthy of his own legacy" Alexander T. Deley

It's true that Koerner never figured out how to make money.

Bob is an alchemist.
He can turn just about anything into cash,
plus he has the road maps to the soul.

And don't forget that Bob invented political protest and ended racial segregation AND the Viet Nam war. cheers
