Now some folks think Bob Dylan sold out the day he plugged in to an amplifier. I didn’t quite get it until now.
I flipped open the cover of the 40th anniversary issue of Rolling Propaganda and saw a two page advertisement with Bob Dylan on one side, and a Cadillac Escalade on the other, plus a brief plug for XM Satellite Radio.
Now I wouldn’t mind having an Escalade with XM and the money to keep both going. Bob Dylan though? He doesn’t belong there. It’s like a picture of Bill Clinton hugging a virgin. It just doesn’t wash. If there was ever a message more clear that describes the content of that magazine.
“We’re bullshit, we know it, and you are too stupid to stop paying us for it.”
Thankfully it’s a free subscription, because after I saw that ad I sent the thing into the garbage can. Fuck recycling, I want that thing to rot in a pile of waste.
