Wassup?! How in da world could I have missed dis album? You know what I'm talkin' 'bout - Desire by Bob Dylan. Where was I, and what kind of chemistry was going in my head? Don't answer dat. Yo, okay, dat time but I thought it was un-cool to be listening to da music of a troubadour who wore white face makeup. Folklore acoustic guitar and janky monotone yelps – gimme a break! Back den I was only listenin' to B. B. King and Muddy on da colored radio. Den I saw da movie The Hurricane. You know, with da brother - Denzel Washington playing Hurricane Carter. You remembuh boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who was wrongly imprisoned for murder? How dare dem leet crackers canned da brother. But back to Dylan - All of da sudden I was having a whoa experience. Man o man. I came away listening to Desire with da bitter sweet feeling of melancholy realizing how flow off da wheezy dis was. It is pure dope.
Lemme know when you gonna invite me again to your soiree.
Your Beautiful Sista,
