C'mon Meade, tell it like it is - you're old and the encore was past your curfew.

Hey you all, stop picking on Meade!

His mommy said it was "time to go."

SO...IT WAS TIME TO GO!

Actually, I was ready to go when Knopfler left.

rrnate is correct: I'm old and I prefer early to bed/early to rise.

Reported? Review? Jason you don't really get this whole blog thing, do you?


You bought a ticket to see Bob Dylan perform ancient songs at a hockey arena and you're not a "soppy old boomer"?

Good one, Stu. Now who gonna take away Stu's license to kill?

But seriously, I enjoyed your review.

[T]he band just sauntered onto the stage already strumming, and Dylan took to the piano with no introduction at all.

That's good prose.

Be careful, now. Meade has difficulty distinguishing between fame and infamy. I think "Idiot Wind" is more apt anyway.

I like to think of myself more as "Hurricane" Rubin Carter. Except for what Howard Sounes called Carter's antagonistic rhetoric, criminal history, [and] violent temper.

Definitely don't like some of the reports from Ohio and Florida. And I can't really comment on Dylan, but if Wall Street is as wrong as it was in 2008, we can expect a Romney "victory":)

Sounds about right to me.


Seriously, who leaves during an encore? It's like dropping out of college with 3 credits left. You spend all this time at a show just to leave with minutes to go. Is it to beat the traffic cause I thought they had their cute little bikes to trot around on?

Well, one can only take so much of the cat screeching noise of Bob Dylan.

Wrong Bob. Meade & Mommy would've stayed till the last draw had it been Bob Marley. If Bob Marley were alive-- you know, like Romney's campaign...
