Some of you may remember how I am only lukewarm on Bob Dylan. Well, my good friend Caolan sent me an email to show me a video of Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone. getting butchered on The View. For your viewing pleasure, here it is:


link to ifilm

It's from the (I would assume, crappy) musical, The Times They Are A-Changin'.

While I am not a great student of musical theatre (my favorite musical is Jesus Christ Superstar) I have to say that that's one of the shabbiest things I've ever seen in my life on this Earth. Quite clearly if Bob Dylan had a grave he'd be rolling over in it. If grave-rolling-over-in can happen retroactively then this is a clear cut case for it.

After watching this, can you even name what the worst part of it is?

Is it the strange, fake, Picasso-esque guitar that the singer is holding?

Is it the strange undead dancers that appear to have all passed away in some freak Cirque de Soleil accident and have now risen from the dead?

Is it the way various parts of the song are highlighted by fake stones rolling in or by the singer doing a karate kick in the air?

Is it the Pilates class that appears to be going on in the background?

Is it not knowing if the singer is supposed to be Bob Dylan or Mork from Ork?

Is it Rosie O'Donnell saying, "Wow!" at the end because she clearly feels bad for them?

You decide.

Ha! That's pretty awful. Now what the heck is this musical supposed to be, anyway?

See, if I were gay, it's stuff like that that I would find embarrassing. I'd be saying things to my friends like "No, it's just a sexual lifestyle; I don't like shitty theatre." God, that was lousy. Me and my gay friends would probably look for that guy in the bars and kick the crap out of him.

Rosie O'Donnell played Rizzo in Grease (not the movie), so she probably thought that was really good.

Now on to the real topic: tell your friend Caolan to stop watching The View. People really need to stop watching that thing.

Chef, I didn't read your post before watching the video.

I did make mental notes of all the crappy elements. But after reading your list I don't feel the need to repeat anything.

smile.gif This bears repeating...

Oh, Caolan certainly wasn't watching The View. I don't know that for sure but I would sooner imagine she'd be downhill skiing than watching The View. This was stumbled upon by a friend of hers.

I think it bears repeating that Caolan was not watching The View.

It doesn't feel very good at all, thanks for asking.

I think it would have sounded funny if it ended with "I look stupid."

Getting butchered on the view?
So I see it is not everyone's piece of meat.

Didn't mean to impugn, just Rosie-bashing in general.

Deep Thoughts:
I think Jesus Christ (Superstar) could turn up to 13 hit-dice worth of undead -- be they extras in this movie (which my flash-disabled-ness keeps me from having to see right away!) or extras in Michael Jackson's "Thriller". devil.gif

It is also probably important not to mistakenly rent Superstar when you're in truth, looking for "Jesus Christ, Superstar". Its debatable whether this would be a worse evening then accidently renting the feel-bad Fallon/Latifah comedy Taxi when you wanted the Scorsese/DeNiro dark melodrama Taxi Driver wub.gif

That mess looked like an especially bad episode of the children's show The Wiggles. The dancers appear to be panhandlers hopped up on LSD and dressed in surplus Halloween costumes. What a nightmare!
