Get Out

bob dylan, quotes, sayings, feeling, today, futureBob Dylan comes to town for three nights at the Dolby Theatre.  Tenacious D’s curated comedy cavalcade Festival Supreme comes to The Shrine on Saturday.  In honor of both events I give you some of  funnyman Bob Dylan’s quotes and lyrics.

“Now, I don’t care just what you do
If you wanta have a picnic, that’s up t’ you
But don’t tell me about it, I don’t wanta hear it

Stay in m’ kitchen, have m’ own picnic . . .
In the bathroom

“The pump don’t work ’cause the vandals took the handles.”

Half of the people can be part right all of the time
Some of the people can be all right part of the time
But all of the people can’t be all right all of the time

“I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours”
I said that
