I’m reading a really great post on montevidayo.com on Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol that sums up so well what I love about these two and their odd, icily antagonistic relationship. It’s fascinating in a fucked up, why-can’t-I-turn-away sort of way.
Another aspect that interests me is gender and sexuality. Contrary to that awful “Factory Girl” movie, I don’t think it’s accurate to associate Dylan with being a defender against the threat that Warhol poses (this evil, catty, gay man…again, awful movie). In reality, I think this is more about artifice vs authenticity, and our true nature vs what we show the world/what we want other people to see. What makes Dylan and Warhol so interesting to me is that they are more like the other than they want to let on, or even acknowledge to themselves.
Then there is poor Edie Sedgwick, who is of course caught in the middle. I don’t even want to get started, because I could go on even longer about that…
I really want to write about this…you know there is no hope for you when you want to write BOB DYLAN FANFICTION. I MEAN REALLY.

49 years ago today Bob Dylan released “Like a Rolling Stone.”
The Beatles wanted to hold your hand, The Rolling Stones wanted to sleep with your daughter and Bob Dylan wanted you to go fuck yourself.
WHY IS SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL SO BAD DRAWN?? щ(ಥДಥщ)
My first reaction with ep1 was “meh, it could be worse”, but I’ve just watched ep2 and I’m really angry. I don’t like the style, but at least they could put more effort on making good animation? But they can’t even tilt their heads without having their faces floating weirdly!
And the abuse of the bad integrated 3D is disgusting… I don’t understand why they used 3D in the transformation scenes they are going to repeat every episode. It’s water so dificult to animate that they needed to use 3D fluids? Ami’s transformation is terrible D:
I shouldn’t use my blog for this but I’m really angry.
