Bob Dylan

I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight ” *Lyric

Close your eyes, close your door
You don’t have to worry any more
I’ll be your baby tonight.

Shut the light, shut the shade
You don’t have to be afraid
I’ll be your baby tonight.

Well, that mockingbird’s gonna sail away
We’re gonna forget it
That big, fat moon is gonna shine like a spoon
But we’re gonna let it
You won’t regret it.

Kick your shoes off, do not fear
Bring that bottle over here
I’ll be your baby tonight.

London Riots. (The BBC will never replay this. Send it out)

BBC is like the cook, trying to extort the recipe for the making of its mysterious cookies, from the wrong eyewitness (not all eyewitnesses can be bought): Therefore, BBC should pay them before they speak, give them the script, and make them sign a statement, that if they say anything off that script they will be thrown in jail. Otherwise, one may just speak his own mind, as if there was freedom to do so! (Yet another embarrassing cohersive interogation, from the news spinners of the old world)

Thank you Mr. Darcus Howe, you have proven that truth doesn’t need anyexplanation, reason, or embellishments: Only spinning the truth into a nice lie require those ingredients! (a great moment of clarity!)

Today’s Birthday: Milton Berle (1908)

Milton Berle (1908)

Berle was an American comedian and the first major US television star. He began acting in vaudeville at age 10 and went on to perform in more than 50 silent films, on radio, and as a nightclub comedian. His great success, however, was as the host of NBC’s Texaco Star Theater, which earned him the nickname “Mr. Television.” He contributed significantly to the medium’s growing popularity, and many are said to have bought TV sets just to watch “Uncle Miltie.” How did he get that nickname?
