My Bob Dylan Book

A rare personal message, seemingly from Dylan himself, appeared on recently.

Here’s the final paragraph for those not interested in reading the entire thing (it’s about some canceled Chinese shows).

“Everybody knows by now that there’s a gazillion books on me either out or coming out in the near future. So I’m encouraging anybody who’s ever met me, heard me or even seen me, to get in on the action and scribble their own book. You never know, somebody might have a great book in them.”

I’m thinking could spend the next 15 years collecting every single Bob Dylan-related vignette possible, compile them roughly by year and create a kind of pastiche of Dylan’s encounters with his fans.

I have a 2nd hand story about Bob Dylan. . .which involved someone yelling “Hey Bob Dylan” incessantly at a hooded Dylan as he retreated across a New Haven parking lot. Finally Dylan turned around and unleashed a string of choice expletives.

This strikes me as enough of an anchor on which to base an entire book.

I just thought of another Dylan story I’ve heard. . .I can’t remember who told this to me. But my friend was at a forgotten hotel bar and Dylan sat down next to him. I think they talked about baseball for a while.

Monster Island End Date in Sight

Our beloved Eden is getting demolished.

I don’t mean Williamsburg – b/c we’ve been sick of it since 1998 – but our creative refuge – called Monster Island and more specifically – The Ocropolis.

About 5 years ago, with the help of numerous friends we constructed The Ocropolis. . .over the years it’s hosted many intimate Oneida events and been the recording site for a number of killer albums by Black Dice, Growing, Sightings and of course Oneida.

Every year the building hosts a block party – and this will be the final one at our current location. The event organizers have opened a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the event. Man Forever will be performing (among other bonkers artists). It’s always a fun day. We’re all looking forward to it.
