Read it in the Sunday papers …

A South Korean inventor who was fed up with drinking alone has created a robot companion that can knock back shots with him all night long. Eunchan Park began developing Robot Drinky after he spent Christmas 2012 drinking rice wine by himself. “I had no girlfriend at that time,” he said. “Drinking alone was definitely terrible.” Drinky is designed to combat that sense of solitude: It can clink glasses in a toast and nods its head as its inebriated human buddy rants away. Drinky, though, never gets drunk – the booze flows straight from its mouth down a tube and into a mason jar.

As a Neil Young fanatic I just have to say I am appalled that he chose to cover this vile song. To further irritate his rendition is absolutely abysmal!

One of my favorite Dylan songs. And these three covers represent themselves well.

Bob Dylan’s 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration (aka “Bobfest”):

Okay this is just plain ridiculous. Bob Dylan, Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton and George Harrison on stage at the same time! I mean c’mon. I don’t know, can anyone name another show that featured as many music icons on stage at the same time?

Read it in the Sunday papers …

More than 1,300 students at Oberlin College have signed a petition asking administrators to abolish midterms and all grades below C to accommodate their busy protest schedules. The students say that attending demonstrations against social injustice leaves little time to study. “A lot of us started suffering academically,” one student said.

Very nice rendition by Neil, Joni Mitchell and The Band. I’ve always wondered why Neil never recorded with Joni. They’re old buddies and her voice works well with his signature falsetto.
