      My biggest problem is his lifting of lines from other artists, without any kind of credit. I believe words and music should be shared and reused openly, but Dylan on album after album has done this with no form of acknowledgment.


    I understand that opinion. Disturbingly, I wrote my entire senior thesis about the subject, although it makes a different argument (that Dylan's assemblage songwriting is a self-conscious artform).


    I can't help but include one more terrible thing, though:

    13. Like A Rolling Stone
    14. All Along The Watchtower


Well, damn ... honestly I am shocked to learn it was 14 songs. Thats the same report I looked at, but I just glossed it over. Anyway, I swear he didn't bust the harmonica out. Regardless, I acknowledged in a private message already that this was irrational of me, and I have recinded my hatred and gone back to loving the man. I guess I should thank you.

I am also back to further refute Mr. Heel II's defense of Denny's:


    BALTIMORE -- The federal government sued Denny's restaurants Thursday, alleging that a manager who had a leg amputated was wrongly fired because her superiors believed she posed a safety risk.

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the class-action lawsuit accusing Denny's of discriminating against Paula Hart and other unnamed employees.

    Hart, a manager at the Denny's in the Baltimore suburb of Fullerton, had a leg amputated in December 2002. She returned to work in April 2003, using a walker while recuperating from surgery and awaiting a prosthetic leg, the commission said.


Yeah, it's only a manager at one store. But obviously their little sensativity training wasn't too effective.

---STAR WARS: EPISODE III---

...not gonna see it... EVER!

---Radio Shack---

...fucking hate the stores.

---Tom Cruise films---

...for obvious reasons.

---FOX (supposed) NEWS---

...bunch of assholes.

---AOL---

...I talked an old lady into giving me her credit card number so I could sign her up for an AOL account knowing she didn't even have a modem hooked up to her computer that was running Windows 3.1 and it made me sick, but I did it because I had a supervisor listening in and the asshole told me I did a great job. I quit a few days later and I'll do ANYTHING to get people to either stop using the service, or tell them how to get it for free without ever paying for it.

---"We Appreciate You!"

"uh, no you don't. You appreciate my money!" ...I fucking hate stores that make employees say this when I leave after purchasing something. I try not to go back to those places.

Lastly, and this might sound crazy, but while I may accept WALMART paychecks, I refuse to spend any of it at work. I'll leave and buy shit elsewhere.

Home Depot.

I spent nearly $400 dollars there on night. The next day, I realized one of the cans of spray paint I bought was the wrong color. I go try to swap it out, but I can't find my receipt. I didn't think it was going to be a big deal, asI was only looking to change the color. Nope. They needed to see my ID, so I show it to the clerk. She says they can't accept it because it was expired(a month or so out of date). I ask her why that very same ID was valid enough when I wrote a check for a pretty decent amount of money.

They wouldn't give. So I walked out and bought the same can of paint at Lowe's across the street. Haven't been to a Home Depot since. Going on 5 years now.

Let me add Dell to my list - I just helped a guy who gave up on his Dell, cause he couldn't get them to fix it. 4 weeks to get them to replace the Motherboard, and probably 30 calls.

and I am still boycotting Target until they allow the Salvation army in front of their stores during the Holidays.

For quite awhile my favorite Broadway musicals were "Cats", "Tommy", "The Producers" and "Mamma Mia". But ever since a couple weeks ago, my new number one favorite is definitely "Wicked".
