No Direction Home

Bob Dylan continues in the "you-couldn't-make-it-up" department by confirming that he may lend his voice to a GPS navigation system.

I for one will be queuing up!

Just imagine asking for the post code for Desolation Row, diverting at Positively Fourth Street into Highway 61 (for the second time) as you go Freewheelin and Bringing it all Back Home.

"Have you got the directions for Swaffham High Street Bob".

"....jingle... jangle.....the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming......."

I gather Mr Dylan wrote, or performed:

'4th time around (the roundabout)'

'On the road again'

'High water (at the ford)'

'Beyond here (the Norfolk border) lies nothin''

'(my exhaust is) blowing in the wind'

'Sitting on top of the world (my sat nav's taken me to the north pole again)'


'This wheel's on fire'

Amongst others. Sound ideal.

"Watch out for them motor sickles."

Sir Bruin said...

Hmmm, think I'll stick to being gently mocked by Mr. Cleese.

KAZ said...

"There must be some way out of here" - I thought when I was stuck in the Oldham one way system last week. If only he'd been there.
I'd love to be in the "you-couldn't-make-it-up" club.
I fear I'm a tad predictable.

Dave: Very good. A deep knowledge of Mr Zimmerframe is emerging.

Billy: Excellent! Could double as a Dave Cameron advert as well!

Geoff: Easy to forget. If you've got motor sickle sell amnesia.

Sir B: Right! That's it! I'm going to give you one more chance!

Kaz: There's too much confusion in Oldham, I can't get no relief road.
Bob keeps surprising us ... he did an ad for ladies undies and became a DJ on Radio 2. I won't be surprised if he appears in the last series of Brig Bruvva.

He wants to be careful on that level crossing Rog; apparently there's a slow train coming...

I've got Brian Eno on mine. Bloody useless in terms of getting from A-B, but *very*, *very* soothing...



sative: that's in Cronwall, i'n't it?

Rog said...

Mort: It might be the Nashville Sky Line - I must ring to complain about their coverage of the World Athletics.

Richard said...

Layby Lady Lay.


Rog said...

Richard: He's good at saying things in a roundabout way.
