Brother BruBru African Hot Sauce

Brothet_bru_bru_hot_sauce Brother BruBru African Hot Sauce, the world's greatest Chilli sauce (I once bought a bottle of it at a San Diego Chilli store!). Dylan wrote 'Mr Tambourine Man' about the man who developed it, so why has nobody heard of the great Bruce Langhorne?

Joan Baez was walking the streets the day before the concert and we got talking. I started crying, and she kissed me on the lips. I cried even more. 3 months later I left Denmark, never to return)

115 dreams

All_along_the_watchtower_1 When I first saw Dylan live in 1992, I expected him to be wearing a hood. I was surprised to see him dressed like the dandified gent in the above right picture. Since I love 19th-century clothing, I'm mostly interested in the 1860s-style suits and ties he favors nowadays. The following is a brief chronology of the clothing Dylan has worn onstage

Pa's a sap
Ma is as selfish as I am
May a moody baby doom a yam?

“Well, I can sail a boat & fly a plane”...

 Dylan_1965You’ve known all about the July 25, 1965 concert when Dylan played electric guitar in public for the first time, singing Maggie’s Farm at the Newport Folk Festival, but have you actually heard it before? (From Hard travelin’). Photo here.

A year earlier, it was all Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues:

Well, I was feelin' sad and feelin' blue,
I didn't know what in the world I was gonna do,
Them Communists they wus comin' around,
They wus in the air,
They wus on the ground.
They wouldn't gimme no peace. . .

So I run down most hurriedly
And joined up with the John Birch Society,
I got me a secret membership card
And started off a-walkin' down the road.
Yee-hoo, I'm a real John Bircher now!
Look out you Commies!
