    One thought on “Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series”

    1. Like an actor deluded into thinking he can sing well enough for an album, this master songwriter has been flattered into making his hobby public. Amateurish paintings, pretentious essays. He's in over his head and all concerned should be embarrassed. To quote a Dylan song: "Say that vanity got the best of him."

    2. I agree with the other guy, Bob's no painting genius. But on the other hand he is a singing genius, and because of everything he is in the world we grew up in and the world we live in now, anything he does is fascinating. It's tempting to imagine that among other voices in his head, one was murmuring "easy money!"He is almost as poor a painter as I am. That in itself makes my day.
