More Dylan [Sep. 28th, 2005|11:33 am]
Tony Grist
The second part of the Dylan film has great footage of him talking to the press. The reporters are asking stupid and/or pompous questions and he's swatting them away like flies, mainly saying "no" or turning the question back on the questioner, but it's all good humoured and he's giggling at the inanity and some of the press people are laughing right along. I guess what we're seeing here is the birth of celebrity culture.

The film ends with the incident on the English tour where some protesting folkie in the audience shouts "Judas" and he replies "You're a liar; I don't believe you-" then turns to The Band and tells them to "play it fucking loud." That happened here- in Manchester's Free Trade Hall (now a hotel.) Epic stuff.

I've adopted Manchester as my home town (I'm a Londoner by birth) and I'm fiercely proud of her. Yeah, there's a lot of good things that have happened here.

I'm not so sure about the Vimto. That's one Manchester "delicacy" I've never developed a taste for.

But we've got the best Chinese and Indian restaurants in Britain! :)

Vimto! In my youth in Manchester the sweet shop by the public swimming baths used to sell hot Vimto and as kids we would drink it after going swimming in the winter. I used to love it. I suspect that I would hate it now. Probably far too sweet.

Sweet and sticky...

I'd never heard of it until I moved to Manchester in my mid 20s- and by then I was far too set in my ways to develop a taste for it.
