Rock Star myspace surveys: The Bob Dylan edition

1. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
I've got a hole
Where my stomach disappeared
Then you ask why I don't live here
Honey, I gotta think you're really weird.

2. What was your last alcoholic beverage?
Now the rainman gave me two cures,
Then he said, "Jump right in."
The one was Texas medicine,
The other was just railroad gin.

3. Who is/are the friend/s you can count on the most?
Now I gotta friend who spends his life
Stabbing my picture with a bowie-knife
Dreams of strangling me with a scarf
When my name comes up he pretends to barf.
I've got a million friends!

4. Where was your first kiss with your current significant other?
You kiss me, baby, in the coffee shop
You make me nervous, you gotta stop

5. What's your Favorite Band?
I hear the hot-blooded singer
On the bandstand croon
September Song, Memphis in June
While they're beating the devil out of a guy who's wearing a flaming red wig

6. What is something you've learned about yourself recently?
I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes
I followed the winding stream
I heard the deafening noise, I felt transient joys
I know they're not what they seem

7. Do you like anyone (more than as a friend)?
Maybe someday, you'll believe me when I say
That I wanted you, baby, in every kind of way.

8. Do you know anyone who is engaged?
You're a man of the mountains, you can walk on the clouds,
Manipulator of crowds, you're a dream twister.
You're going to Sodom and Gomorrah
But what do you care? Ain't nobody there would want to marry your sister.

9. What's your favorite number?
Ten thousand women all sweepin' my room,
Ten thousand women all sweepin' my room,
Spilling my buttermilk, sweeping it up with a broom.

10. Who was the last person to make you cry?
Last night I danced with a stranger
But she just reminded me you were the one
You left me standing in the doorway crying
In the dark land of the sun

11. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?

12. How many things in your past do you regret?
Strange how people who suffer together have stronger connections than people who are most content.
I don't have any regrets, they can talk about me plenty when I'm gone.
You always said people don't do what they believe in, they just do what's most convenient, then they repent.

13. What is one thing you miss about your past?
if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

14. What is one thing you've learned about life?
Some things last longer than you think they will
There are some kind of things you can never kill

15. Are you jealous of anyone?
Most of the time
My head is on straight,
Most of the time
I'm strong enough not to hate.

17. Has a friend ever used you?
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right

18. Has anyone recently told you that they like you more than as a friend?
You got my attention,
Go ahead, speak.
What was it you wanted
When you were kissing my cheek?

19. Who was the last person you drove with?
Lenny Bruce is dead but he didn't commit any crime
He just had the insight to rip off the lid before its time.
I rode with him in a taxi once, only for a mile and a half,
Seemed like it took a couple of months.
Lenny Bruce moved on and like the ones that killed him, gone.

20. What are you looking forward to?
Stake my future on a hell of a past
Looks like tomorrow is coming on fast
Ain't complaining 'bout what I got
Seen better times, but who has not?

for whatever reason it's not letting me respond to the above post. I'm From Barcelona is a fantastic album. I was surprised by the Modest Mouse new one as well. Lately, however, I've been digging on the latest by the Arcade Fire and Andrew Bird. Good stuff.

fyi, thanks for adding a rss feed. makes this monkey v. happy.
