The name, "A Plain Picture," comes from an interview of Bob Dylan that is used as the ending sample in Sage Francis' "Makeshift Patriot." I can't find any details on the interview-- who is the interviewer, when was it given, what was it for. All I know from googling it is that, yes, it is Bob Dylan, and yes, Sage Francis did use it in his song. (If anyone knows anything more, could you let me know?)
These lines, also present in the new logo, are worth quoting in full.
Bob Dylan: Seriously, if I want to find out anything, I'm not going to read Time Magazine, I'm not going to read Newsweek, I'm not going to read any of these magazines. I mean, 'cause they've just got too much to lose by printing the truth! You know that.
--What kinds of truths are they omitting?
BD: Well, anything. Even on a worldwide basis. They'd just go off the stands in a day if they printed really the truth.
--What is really the truth?
BD: Well, really the truth is just a plain picture.
This blog will be a plain picture of my life and my thoughts. There will be no censorship, since I answer to nobody but myself. Entries will be extremely random, but may deal with politics, music, community, college, people, and of course, personal stuff. Please, read, and enjoy, and join the discussion if you feel like it. Also, if you feel like it, start your own! Give me the link and I will definitely read it.
Hope to see you in the future!Posted by smit2174 at February 4, 2005 12:07 AM
