hey bob dylan

happy 75th birthday to you!

mr. t and i are spending the last hour of your big day listening to your widely-reviled self portrait album because why the hell not?

i won’t belabor the point because you probably have candles to blow out

but thanks for being you all these years

even when you did that victoria’s secret commercial

and made the bob dylan christmas album

(no. especially when you made the bob dylan christmas album)

thanks for making music that dad wanted to play around the house.

music that seeped into my soul when i was barely out of kindergarten

and never went away.

thanks for profound songs like “like a rolling stone” and silly songs like “country pie” or is it the other way ’round?

thanks for bewildering me at live aid and mesmerizing me with a mind-blowing “tangled up in blue” years later (the last concert dad and i saw together)

thanks bob. for everything. stick around for awhile, won’t you?
