EARTH TO ELLEN SANDER…”YOU’RE ABOUT TO RE-ENTER THE BLOGOSPHERE!”
September 18, 2012
I JUST TALKED TO MY LONGTIME FRIEND ELLEN SANDER, ROCK JOURNALIST (“Saturday Review, The Realist, The L.A. Free Press, The Sunday New York Times, Vogue ”) AND WAS FLATTERED WHEN SHE WANTED TO TAKE ME UP ON MY OFFER TO GIVE MY BOOK, “ARTIE WAYNE’S ADVANCED GUIDE TO BLOGGING”, FREE TO ANY OF MY READERS WHO WANTED ONE.
ALTHOUGH SHE’S HAD A BLOG SINCE 2003, SHE ADMITS SHE’S NEGLECTED IT. BUT NOW SHE’S DECIDED TO JUMP BACK INTO THE BLOGOSPHERE WITH MORE CREDITS THAN THOSE WHO ARE CURRENTLY LEADING THE FIELD.
I ASKED HER WHAT SHE WAS GOING TO WRITE ABOUT FIRST AND SHE TOLD THE NEW BOB DYLAN ALBUM “TEMPEST”, WHICH I’VE BEEN HEARING A LOT ABOUT. IT PIQUED MY CURIOSITY WHEN I READ ON HER BLOG HOW SHE SPENT THE MORNING OF 9/11. ” Trust Bob Dylan to salve and brighten a day of mourning and bitter awakenings. Tempest is his best album in years, maybe decades. ”
I COULDN’T WAIT TO HEAR WHAT ELSE ELLEN HAD TO SAY ABOUT “TEMPEST”…SHE DIDN’T DISAPPOINT ME…THIS WHAT SHE JUST POSTED.
Dylan Still Rocks My World
Google Search for Bob Dylan new album: about 87,200,000 results. Google search for “new iPhone” 7,970,000,000 results. For perspective, “Topless Kate” had 685,000,000 results.
When a new Dylan album came out, back in the day, it was the talk of the town, the town consisting of radio, publications and “buzz.” No cellphones, no internet back then. Today the town has a much different geography. The iPhone rules. Even over Royal boobies. As of today, the new iPhone has been “out,” that is, announced, described, enpictured, and hyped for 5 days and Tempest has been out for about a week.
The iPhone broke the division between a telephone, a media player and a PC. The smart phone made messaging preferable to a phone call. The smart phone made the telephone nearly obsolete. (The iPhone, from most reports is actually a crappy phone but the the other functionality is irresistable. Even to me. I have an iPod Touch and a stupid phone.)
Bob Dylan broke the sentence. He broke the length barrier for airplay. He broke the mold for the pop recording artist. He broke the mold of his own persona, over and over again.”
