LGF Suckage & Karma Stats 6/03/11-6/09/11

Weekly suckage-efficiency and karma stats for LGF for the week beginning 06/03/2011 thru 6/09/2011 (Friday thru Thursday) [last week’s stats].

The top two suckage-efficacy leaders for the week remained unchanged. SteelPH and publicityStunted were top two suckups again, 2 & 1 respectively. No one other than one of those two nics has ever led the suckage-efficiency stat since we’ve been compiling it. The unfortunate budfox was banned by Charles after last week’s appearance here at DoD as a top three suckup, the appearance on last week’s list being the only discernible offense, all the more mysterious since the Lizardoid never reads here. CJ got 4 down dings this week: 2 from Buck, and 2 from Girl With A Pearl Earring.

Top ten suckups:

rank dings suck eff. nic previous ranks
1 167 86.5% publicityStunted 2 2 1 1 1
2 103 53.4% SteelPH 1 1 2 3 7

Interesting BRC inter-cellar communique:

And another math factoid. I did a cumulative distribution of all 6 weeks of updings to check out if the 80:20 Pareto Principle was in evidence… and for whatever reason, it’s more of a 70:20, or 80:25 — just like you observed a few weeks ago.

Now, mapping that back to what it means behaviorally…

Let’s assume that each registered LGF’er has 2 base drives in life:
1. commenting at LGF
2. praising Charles’s insightful commentary.

The strength of these compulsions will vary by lizard, the highly compelled to comment will comment more than those less compelled. The fact that your commenting plots nail the 80:20 point week in and week out seems to confirm that the commenting behavior of Lizardom conforms to oft observed norms.

But the 70:20 flattening of the suck-curve implies that there is less variance of the suckup-urge amongst the lizards. (If they all dinged equally, it would be a 50:50 diagonal line.)

The inescapable conclusion is that the desire within Lizardom to praise CJ is more widespread than the desire to actually engage in the conversation.

Or maybe not, but it sounds plausible.

Karma stats below the fold:

The average karma for every single comment last week at LGF was +1.93. Last week newly banned Alaska Kim won top spot in both average and total net negative karma. The reliably disapproved Buck was right there in second place in both categories.

  weekly karma average – BAD   weekly karma totals – BAD
  k-avg   nic   k-tot   nic
 -6.094  alaska kim   -400   alaska kim
 -3.073  buck   -172   buck
 -1.522  mr. hammer   -88   njdhockeyfan
 -0.453  naso tang   -69   triple
 -0.242  njdhockeyfan   -68   albusteve
 0.522  andres   -52   naso tang
 0.594  ojoe   -49   mr. hammer
 0.615  rogueone   -41   ludwigvanquixote
 0.703  boxhead   -29   dark_falcon
 0.734  albusteve   -29   rwmofo

Here are this week’s good karma stats. As always, Johnson is the per-comment karma leader. Unsurprisingly, since he was among the ten most active lizards last week, Charles also lead in total positive karma accumulated for the week:

  weekly karma average – GOOD   weekly karma totals – GOOD

 7.332  charles   2075   charles

    I see from the top comments that the “Lizards” are still unable to understand that Reveregate was yet another FAIL.

    Stalker Charles, when NPR sides with Sarah Palin, it’s time for a loser like you to throw in the towel. Don’t spread ignorance.

  2. OldLineTexan says:

    Kragar is not only being stupid, he’s belittling Christians.

    I keep forgetting that’s a plus at the swamp.

  3. garycooper says:

    I love the suckage analysis. It’s so creepy, the way the cultish cadre of catamites crouches at his feet, awaiting the day’s word on who they’re supposed to hate, who’s attacking Dear Fatass, and oh by the way here’s a picture of Pam with no pupils.

    Didja notice the highly-updinged comment of Chunky’s, bragging of his site’s increase in views of 55% from May 8 to June 7? He forgot to thank Weiner, DoD and Breitbart for this blip. Ingrate.

    His ever-slipping popularity chart reminds me of the graph a doctor drew for me a couple of years ago, that describes the way a person in severely-declining health proceeds toward death. It’s a gradual downward-slide, punctuated with a few sharp dips downward, with some rallies afterward that become weaker and weaker until the person is too sick to live. The person’s “will to live” is also sapped by the painful process, and eventually they begin to accept and even look forward to the Reaper’s arrival.

    Don’t fear the Reaper, Chunky. Grab a cowbell, don’t be a dick, and everything will be groovy, baby. Cock-of-the-walk, once again.

    Didn’t njdhockeyfan get banned last month or am I imagining things?

  5. garycooper says:

    http://dailycaller.com/2011/06/11/why-anthony-weiner-cant-leave-congress/

    I get the feeling from watching Weiner’s responses the past couple of days, that they’ll have to drag him kicking and screaming from his office. That job defines him in a way far creepier than the way most men are defined by their jobs…and most professional men’s identities are tied fairly closely to their jobs. This “high-functioning modern man” (Alec Baldwin’s words) would be withered to nothingness, the instant he resigned from office.

  6. YankintheEU says:

    Like Alaska Kim I believe marriage should remain between a man and a woman. But ‘being gay is a sin’? That’s a confused idea. Inclinations themselves cannot be sinful.

    • Whatever says:

      Either Kim isn’t too bright, or is a sock. And if she’s Chuck’s sock, she’s both.

      • YankintheEU says:

        Yeah, I didn’t really read her other comments, but occasionally someone who is not stupid has a stupid idea.

    • buzzsawmonkey says:

      Like Alaska Kim I believe marriage should remain between a man and a woman. But ‘being gay is a sin’? That’s a confused idea. Inclinations themselves cannot be sinful.

      Most “modern” people—particularly if they are of left-liberal bent—do not understand that the Bible does not address “being gay.” “Being gay”—regarding an inclination as a status—is a modern invention. The Bible addresses conduct, and regards certain conduct as sinful. This is a much more intelligent and compassionate viewpoint than the modern-day reductionism of “status,” because it recognizes that the issue is not what our desires may be, but whether or not we choose to act on them.

      • Lord Nazh says:

        Yea, the Bible simply states that it is a sin for a man to lie with a man as with a woman; doesn’t say you can’t go pink and fruity and shit though 😉

      • buzzsawmonkey says:

        Joking aside, it is quite clear from the context and the language that the Levitical prohibitions were aimed at the orgiastic practices of the idolatrous cults of the time. There are prohibitions in Deuteronomy (which nobody talks about when this subject comes up) against both Israelite men and women working as temple prostitutes, temple prostitution being a common practice in the idolatrous religions of that day. The same section then contains a prohibition against using the proceeds of commercial prostitution, as distinct from “sacred” prostitution, for paying your Temple dues—which clearly indicates both a distinction between sex acts done in the service of another deity and those done for commercial gain, and the fact that prostitution, male as well as female, was not unknown in ancient times.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        Still to be explained, though, is why anyone who doesn’t believe in the Bible should care what the Bible says about sex, much less be subjected to its strictures under law.

  7. Nomad says:

    So according to one comment, Charles hate the entire right wing, because of what one group did to some children.

  8. Voltaires Crack says:

    ElSuerte :
    Didn’t njdhockeyfan get banned last month or am I imagining things?

    Banned, groveled, and re-instated.

  9. livefreeor die says:

    Hey, Chuck,
    That creep you defended. Just a reminder how right Breitbart was:

    http://www.tmz.com/2011/06/12/anthony-weiner-representative-congress-house-of-representatives-gym-locker-room-photos-pictures/

    Now Breitbart will be getting even more interviews and chances to comment in the press.

  10. funny that budfox appears to have been going for the top spot, and then was cast out in mid run. He might have made it. On the other hand, the suckage is strong with those two.

  11. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Hey BRC, when was the last time a loozard dared to actually downding Chunk? Every time I saw it happen in the past, he would immediately confront the malefactor. The master of the shark-jumping shitty blog is a sensitive guy.

    • CJ got 4 down dings this week: 2 from Buck, and 2 from Girl With A Pearl Earring.

    • ElSuerte says:

      I’d like to know which Charles comments got downdinged.

      • Engineer #5 says:

        Buck downding #1, on yet another Breitbart/Weiner post:

        re: #1 Buck
        I can’t believe we are still talking about this.
        It is embarrassing.

        Yeah, I’m sure you don’t want to talk about it, now that it’s completely falling apart.

        2/9095606

         
        Buck downding #2, after CJ takes Obdicut’s side in an ongoing Buck/Obdicut dispute:

        22 Charles Fri, Jun 3, 2011 9:31:02am +13

        re: #19 Buck  [to Obdicut]
        Just like your previous lie, that is a lie as well.

        No, it’s not a lie at all, Buck. I read what you wrote.

        22/9095632

         
        Chuck finishes with a threat. The crowd roars its approval:

        30 Charles Fri, Jun 3, 2011 9:34:52am +17

        re: #25 Buck [a non-dickish self-defense]

        I’m going to be ignoring you now. If you continue, I’ll just block your account.

        30/9095640

  12. speaking of Buck, I didn’t know he tweets:

  13. antilgfwarrior says:

    Another day,another chuck lie.

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      What utter bullshit. No one writes the way he claims he wrote. In retrospect. It would be hard to decide which he is a bigger example of – moron or liar.

      • swamprat says:

        Horse is dead Charles. And beating it over and over again won’t make you appear less foolish, or correct.

  14. antilgfwarrior says:

    Looks like Chuck got out of the wrong side of the bed or it could be the new weiner pics?

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Ordering people on other blogs to “correct their posts” now? I think the final meltdown is approaching.

    • check out comment #17 on that last fact check thread.

      • antilgfwarrior says:

        Must admit,the #17 threw me for a while. I thought that thread had run out of steam at #15.The toys are really being thrown out of the pram.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        And once again, Chunk either fails to notice the mockery or chooses to ignore it, instead doubling down on the self-deluded bullshit.

      • YankintheEU says:

        That’s when you are scraping the barrel. When even the biggest sycophants around cannot muster up the grit to congratulate Charles for proving the right wing extremists wrong on this. I mean, they can see that Charles never meant to say that Coulter was actually reacting to the image when he said: “Here’s Anthony’s photo of Coulter reacting to the picture; notice that his computer is apparently there.” He was not at all saying that Breitbart’s computer appears to be right there. Hahahaha.

        //This is absurd. What a pathological liar.

    • Whatever says:

      Somebody. Quick. Take his cranky flakes.

    • swamprat says:

      My, he IS testy, isn’t he?

  15. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    By the way, did anyone else catch this?

    Here’s an open thread for Saturday morning, while I take care of a few non-blog items….

    (Be back a bit later with a post on the latest claims made by the Breitbart camp followers, as they desperately try to deflect attention away from their idol’s irresponsible, reckless behavior with that infamous explicit photo of Rep. Weiner. This one will be fun.)

    Since the “fun” post “rebutting” Stranahan was the longest thing Chunk has written in living memory (and a total discomfiture-producing bomb even with his loozards), one can assume that the “non-blog items” he talked about never existed, and he spent the intervening time shitting out that great odoriferous log of exegesis on his own text.

    Chunk has now become like a Bible interpreter desperately trying to “spiritualize” the plain meaning of some inconvenient text. When God says “kill all the Canaanites” what he really meant to say was…blahblahblah. When Chunk says “notice the computer” in reference to a picture, he’s talking about an ideal Platonic computer that his philosophy demands must exist in order for his theories to make sense. Why can’t you dense bastards just understand me? Whyyyyyy?

    I wonder what it’s like for Stranahan to get peremptory orders from an obviously insane person.

    When they start ignoring him out of pity, he’ll think he’s won.

    Charles is going to take a break so he can only make a fool of himself on line for like 20 hours today instead of the usual 24

    Now the insane one is telling Stranahan that his “moron” tweet was “just kidding”. Yeah, Chunk, you’re not nearly as deranged and bitter as you seem at first glance.

  21. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Twitter is not a good venue for certain people. Like, nutso twitchy bastards who can never put a minute’s reflection time between their first reaction and hitting the “send” button.

    Adam Baldwin is a great example of someone who never gets angry, but knows how to poke the angry people with sticks until they lose it.

    It’s actually impossible to lose an internet argument if you keep your cool and your sense of humor. Chunk has neither in any abundance, and he loses both in a flash.

    Johnson never said the menu on the sandwich board was the computer in question. He did however, suggest that it might be the computer in question. I think he used the word “appears”. There was nothing wrong with this idle speculation.

    He bought the tickets to crazytown when he denied that he had pointed out the menu as the POSSIBLE computer. I mean, the post was still up. You could see see the words he had written. They were right in front of you.

    This just illustrated that Charles had to be right no matter what.

    And this lunacy came about because he wanted something to be true,(in this case, Weiners’ innocence) when the facts and evidence indicated otherwise.

    Desire should not replace logic.

    He had already witnessed this phenomena with the Dan Rather papers. And he certainly has been quick to critize this same flaw in Christians, left wingers, and, more recently, conservatives.

    It didn’t help that Beitbart was the path to the undoing of a powerful and effective Democrat.

    And Weiners’ take on Souters’ conflict of interest seems correct to me.

    But life goes on. Sometimes we are wrong. Sometimes Weiners make mistakes. Sometimes the Breitbarts in our life, win.

    Denying that you mis-identified a menu on a sandwich board as a POSSIBLE computer is insane. It is incorrect.

    Better is; I never said it was the computer, I had indicated it might be the computer.

    You can’t be right all the time. And if you ARE right, that does not mean others are wrong. Both the bus and the train can both go to the same destination.

    • gizbot7 says:

      I only have one quibble with this. He used the word “apparently” which has a very different meaning than the word “appears.” Doing so means he was not speculating, he was declaring.

      One of those people was right wing flamethrower Ann Coulter. Here’s Anthony’s photo of Coulter reacting to the picture; notice that his computer is apparently there, but Breitbart is nowhere to be seen.

      • gizbot7 says:

        I should have noted that your point is still 100% correct. Desire should not usurp logic or facts, and either way, in this case it certainly did.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        “Grammar Nazi” is what people scream when their poor thinking reflected in poor writing is exposed. Their penance is to fail to be taken seriously. As Chunk has learned to his sorrow.

        You really either don’t see how annoying that is or you don’t care. You know, the argument could be made that those who think that perfect grammar in everything they type somehow translates into superior intellect. Here’s a clue-bat for you — it doesn’t — and your continual harping on it is proof enough.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        Argument by assertion works about as well for you as it does for Chunk.

        The fact is that I absolutely do judge by how well a point is framed and whether it makes grammatical sense. If you find that annoying, I find that amusing.

    OldLineTexan :

    How was the -42 post “gay-bashing”? I’m really interested in how the label works.

    We can change it to ‘gay baiting’, hows that. Alaska Kim was really really obviously trying to get a negative reaction by saying things against gay rights. This isn’t rocket science!

    (See, I’m nice too!)

    • Whatever says:

      The distinction that you’re failing to make, and this is quite Chuckish, is the distinction between baiting/bashing gays, and baiting/bashing boneheaded liberals who wet their panties in a wad everytime someone says “gay” in a sentence that doesn’t also contain a profuse praise. So AK is tired of hearing about gay rights. So what?

    • Doppelganger says:

      I’d say she was just voicing the opinion of the majority of Americans, who reject gay marriage.
      I myself don’t care if the gays get married or not, but the people have spoken.
      Every time it’s on the ballot it’s rejected.
      Is it a sin? That’s up to God. Not my problem.
      But Alaska Kim feels it is, as do many Americans ( can’t guess on the percentages)

      The ones doing the baiting at LGF are the militant Nazi downdinger brigades.
      They are out of touch with the majority of Americans. They are the equavelent of the mobs who threatened and used racial slurs against the supports of Whatever Prop was in California to ban gay marriage.

      The folks who call for tolerance, while showing intolerance to all who don’t share their views

      • buzzsawmonkey says:

        If you don’t care about whether or not “gays” want to get married, you should. Most people have no problem with granting “domestic partnership” to same-sex unions. (It would be interesting, btw, to see how many people, numerically and statistically, have actually taken advantage of these “domestic partnership” rights where they have been granted. I would bet very few.)

        But creating a new form of marriage is something else again. There are several reasons that people should be uneasy about this: first, because it is a new form of marriage, wholly unprecedented in human history.

        Second, because the modern, i.e., post-Stonewall, “gay-rights” movement was initially predicated on destroying marriage—and there has never been any public discussion of how this 180-degree reverse in the movement’s goals came about.

        Third, because there is no clear definition of what “gay” encompasses. The “gay-rights” movement includes “bisexuals” when it needs to swell its demographic (the “B” in “LGBT”), but within the movement bisexuals are despised. Last year, in fact, a “gay softball league” in Seattle refused to allow bisexuals to participate because they “weren’t gay enough”—a decision recently upheld by a court.

        Likewise, the concept of “transgender” is antithetical to “gay and proud”—yet the “gay-rights” movement includes transgenders, again to swell its demographic and to normalize the behavior of its other members. When there is no clear definition of, or parameter to, the group demanding a new “right,” such a step should be viewed with extreme caution.

        Fourth, and perhaps most important, creating same-sex marriage is opening the door to an all-out assault on freedom of religion. The “gay-rights” movement demonized the Mormons during and after the Prop 8 campaign in California. That movement has been the major force behind hate-crime laws and circumscription of First Amendment free speech on the grounds that disagreement with them is “hate speech.” If same-sex marriage is legalized, every conservative religious group that refuses to perform such marriages will be under assault, First Amendment notwithstanding.

      • Doppelganger says:

        very comprehensive reply, but it really doesn’t change my mind.
        Marriage has been made a sham for quite some time.
        Look at Liz Taylor and Britany Spears.
        And the Catholic church already refuses to marry people who are still married to somebody else and haven’t had their marriage annuled.

        I think the entire debate is a waste of time and resources. I wish the gays would just drop it and quit with the ballot initiatives. Like I said, the people have spoken. The people don’t want it.
        Sooner or later it will pass somewhere , then everywhere. Might take a few decades but it’s a done deal

      • buzzsawmonkey says:

        Doppelganger: Your examples, if you will pardon me, are ill-chosen.

        The cavortings of the richest and most decadent people in America, while they do unfortunately inspire equally bad behavior in others less well off, mean little overall to ordinary people. Marriage is still doing fairly well in the middle class, and it is precisely for that reason that it is under attack.

        As far as the Catholic Church refusing to marry people who have not annulled their prior marriages, such people are relatively few—and are not a nationally-organized political pressure group that defines itself in opposition to traditional religions, as the gay-rights movement does.

        Your use of emoticons gives you away :p and >< . Face it, you are going to be stuck with us so you might as well just go over to LGF now and tell Charles to take his blog and shove it. Be proactive, strike first. In the legendary words of Cato. Do it. Now.

    xesaie :Actually I just didn’t get the quote quite right, if yer quibbling over the word ‘complain’, I don’t know what to say to you :p
    but, just for you, lets try this one (as another example)
    “Yes, I know some jews, I’m tired of hearing about their victimhood”.
    Anyways, “Homework?” I didn’t see that you actually asked me to do something.

    I wrote you just the nicest request, which you apparently couldn’t be bothered to scroll upthread constantly to see if it existed.

    😉

    I’ll “quote” it and i will be down here shortly. Meanwhile, don’t resort to dickishness.

    • xesaie says:

      I looked for it, just didn’t see it. I’ll do my best once I read it though!

      I like the term ‘dickishness’ in this case, hopefully I can graduate to ‘creep.’

    Tonight Rodan has a deep husky voice for some reason, it is quite sexy!

    xesaie :

    OldLineTexan :How was the -42 post “gay-bashing”? I’m really interested in how the label works.

    We can change it to ‘gay baiting’, hows that. Alaska Kim was really really obviously trying to get a negative reaction by saying things against gay rights. This isn’t rocket science!(See, I’m nice too!)

    I’m still lost.
    “I don’t feel like drinking any more gin tonight”.
    Now, was that gin-bashing, gin-baiting, against gin, or ???
    BTW, I *was* a rocket scientist. F=Ma. It doesn’t matter how much air is above you. OK, class over.
    Now, this turning of a simple comment into a vast, sweeping political attack … that’s effin’ complex, IMO.

    • xesaie says:

      I actually thought that was rhetorical question, sorry.

      I’d say that’s a bad example really, you can’t equate an object to a class of people. Especially when wrong is being done. Insert any wronged class of PEOPLE into the AK quote, and you’ll see why its at the very least insensitive and self-centered.

      Also, if you posted “I’m sick of hearing about gin!” In a forum full of people who care a fair deal about gin, you might be rightly accused of just being a troll/jerk/making trouble… which was point I was trying to make way back when.

      • OldLineTexan says:

        Well, you’d be wrong.

        Unless you’re being dickish, I’d say ou spend a lot of time being “offended” over “bashing” and “baiting” that exists only in your strained interpretations.

        But everyone needs a hobby.

        I’m going with Whatever on this one.

    Poor cat, he yowls so pitifully when I pretend to eat some of his food from his bowl with semi-realistic smacking and crunching noises before giving it to him. Then again the way he attacks it when I do bolsters my belief that he then thinks he is eating the really “good stuff.”

    By all means report to Chuck that you think he’s posting here, the irony would be pretty sweet.

    This is how Cato the Elder reacted to windsagio.

  79. Emperor says:

    Whatever :
    I’m leaning toward the theory that AK is a chucksock, but keeping an open mind.

    It’d be possible that Chuck changed the password to AK’s LGF account so he could log on their account and post under that name. Possible, but not necessarily likely.

    More likely someone who hadn’t logged on LGF in years and was shocked to find out what awaited them.

    • ElSuerte says:

      Chen showed in the CREEP thread that CJ will change the names on comments to better fit his sock theory of the week.

      I don’t think nick-jacking is much of a stretch.

    You have to earn that from Stalker Charles. It’s not a word I use.

    Pretzel Logic :I knew there was something lucking in those emails…

    Writing as God, Mrs Palin wrote, ‘I let Trig’s mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it…’

    Using state resources (computers and email server) to write missive while impersonating God is a against Alaska state statues HBA-07-83.
    I know you won’t see anyone here debating this but I hope the left wing blogs will help make this go viral. Palin deserves nothing less.

    Nice try fuck stick. On second thought, lame try. Hey you got any pictures of your dick or of you doing blow like Obambi?.

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Did someone remove your humor module for cleaning and forget to put it back?

  82. Hah says:

    ElSuerte :
    eh, I think Cato’s Palin issues are worse then BBG’s They extended into pure derangement. IIRC Cato posted misogynistic hate sex fantasies involving Palin and squamous horrors from beyond space-time.

    Wouldn’t BBG do his best to rein in the hate sex fantasies? BBG doesn’t want it known that he was Cato though “’twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood.”

    • ElSuerte says:

      I dunno, I think that might be beyond his capabilities if you’re prone to that kind of thing in the first place.

      You be able to deny and suppress it for a time, but the pressure and urges will build until they can no longer be contained.

      One minute you’re in a job interview and are asked what unique perspective you’d bring to the company, unable to help yourself, you explode into a manic rant about Alaskan snowbilly hentai.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        Oh crap, you found my weak link. The hentai gets me every time.

      • Hah says:

        He hasn’t been around here long enough for the pressure to build. I understand your point, but I believe he’s capable of suppressing. For now. If Palin should decide to run, and worse yet (for Cato and his ilk), get the nomination, BBG’s posts will become Cato’s Palin spews.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        Except I’m on record here as saying I want Palin to run, for the lulz. You can’t buy that kind of entertainment.

        Do I think she’d make a good prez? No. Worse than Obama? Possibly, but not likely. Do I enjoy her presence on the national stage? You betcha.

    ISTE :I thought he was Killgore!

    Even Killgore doesn’t want to be Killgore.

  84. ElSuerte says:

    Listening to Blogmocracy Radio for the first time. I hope St Charles is too. I really want to see a Climate Change Denier, Islamophobe, Cylon convergence conspiracy thread.

    Still don’t get Download city. Then again, maybe you’re aren’t supposed to get any absurdest fiction in the first place.

    Indeed. The content is pretty thin.

      I didn’t use the “>” thing, except for once the first time somebody said I was windsagio.

      I’m still grinning at the strange implied threat.

    “doesn’t want it known that he was Cato though “’twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood.”

    I’m not getting into any Palin-arguments tonight, I’m too sick and tired with a sinus-infection that’s trying to choke me to death, but I can’t help but be inspired by a Dylan-reference to one of my all-time faves. What a killer song. What a monster album. What a pile of words and music, and if you know the story, what a wild human response to one’s situation.

    Okay, carry on. I like Dylan.
