Rolling Stone “Inside Bob Dylan’s Lost Interviews and Unseen Letters”  and although this dates back to October 21, 2020, I find I am reading it today on 24th May, because it has showed up. And within it there is a page of a letter (image) and he mentions “abandoned hotels….like out of last year at marianbad” and it was yesterday that I was following up on a few films a local film club is planning to show, and so I happened to read up a little about the enigma of “Last Year in Marianbad” because that is one of them. Else maybe it would mean nothing to me (O Vienna).


I wish they’d show Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

I’m enjoying cowboys this year. Last night it was Wyatt Earp.

Sometimes, there is plenty of time, but at other times, it seems there isn’t.

Get the fuck up  Up get the fuck   fuck up the get   the up fuck get   the up get fuck

and you can find the remaining variations, but none will get you up.

That’s only the half of it.

Perhaps the best part was Elston Gunn’s cakes, even though I couldn’t concentrate on them for long.

One page is more than enough. Less is more, more or less.

H B Bob. Tomorrow is a new day.
